Sentry Management Chosen as New Management Company

Attention CVOA Homeowners!

We are excited to announce that the Board of Directors has contracted with Sentry Management to provide association management services for our homeowner’s association effective November 1, 2017. Although Sentry will be managing our Association’s everyday financial and administrative business, as your Board we will continue to be responsible for all final decisions regarding your subdivision.

It will take a few weeks to get all homeowner information loaded into the Sentry data base. However, please know that Sentry Management is your first place to call if you have a concern about any Association matter. Our new Community Manager is Christian Brockl. Christian can be reached at (208) 323-1080, extension 59509 or via email at cbrockl@sentrymgt.com. The local Boise office has after-hours emergency staff which can be reached by calling (208) 871-4343.

Additional information will be coming your way by US mail. So be sure to watch your mailbox for these communications.

Email communication: We have email addresses for some residents, but not all. If you would like to be sure to receive email communications from Sentry and the Board, please let Christian know and we’ll get you added to the list. Email is such a great way to get messages out quickly when needed, and is much more cost effective than standard “snail” mail. It is the Board’s intent to eliminate paper newsletters and communicate via email by the middle of next year.

Sentry also has an office in the Harris Ranch area at 4950 Mill Station Drive. It is next door to Lucky 13 restaurant in the red building. Office hours are from 10am to 2pm Wednesday through Friday. The direct phone line is 208-338-1294.

Dog Park

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.
