Attention Homeowners! The November Board Meeting has been changed from Tuesday November 21st to Tuesday November 14th, in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. The time is still set for 6:30pm.

Columbia Village Dog Park

As we have announced and discussed in our annual meetings, construction is finally underway for the Columbia Village Dog Park located on the south side of Grand Forest near Intercon. This is a .78 acre fenced-in park for off-leash use. This project has been in the works for a few years based on feedback from residents and survey respondents. That feedback allowed our dedicated Landscape and Maintenance Committee to budget for creating the space, paying for the fencing, and other materials.

The park will be for Columbia Village residents only and access will be limited by a mechanical security gate. The gate code will be available to homeowners once they register. More information regarding the registration process will follow.

The Columbia Village Dog Park will be open from dawn to dusk and will be on the Carey Guard patrol route. This project is a work in progress as we see how the park is received by all of you once it is open. Our goal is that the park is kept nice by each of us doing our part: dog owners need to clean up after their pets; and parents need to remind kids of the park’s intended use.

Stay tuned for more information and announcement of opening day.

If you have questions about this project, please contact the Board us at office@cvoa.net or (208) 433-0643.

CVOA Statement Concerning Main Line Breaks

There are many miles of main irrigation lines that run through Columbia Village.  These lines area located in common areas or easement boundaries adjacent to homeowners. Columbia Village is just one of many who use these lines for irrigation and shares the cost of maintaining these lines with many. Breaks in the mainline are impossible to predict, but when they are identified, they are repaired immediately. The Board recommends that homeowners maintain insurance to cover the cost of repair/remediation in the event of damage caused by a main line break.

If you see what you think may be a main line break, please call the CVOA office at 208-433-0643 immediately.  If it is after hours, you will be directed to who to call in the event of an emergency.

Common Area Under Power Lines and Idaho Power

Did you know the property under the power lines is owned by CVOA? Idaho Power does not own or maintain the property under the power lines. CVOA has the ownership and maintenance in those areas.  Your volunteer board does their best to help maintain these areas on existing budget dollars.  Idaho Power only maintains the ability to keep their transmission lines free of hazards.  If you have a question, suggestion, or concern for those areas, please contact DSI who can forward them to the Landscape and Maintenance Committee.  Do not contact Idaho Power for maintenance or landscaping issues. 

Lawn Maintenance

As a Board, one of our goals is keep Columbia Village a great place to live. This spring and summer, CVOA will be actively addressing lawn maintenance issues throughout all of Columbia Village.  Please treat weeds as needed.

If you are planning to replace your fence, please remember to complete and submit an ACC request.  ACC forms can be found here or at the Rec Center.
