August Neighborhood Update
Posted on Aug 22nd, 2022
The new school year is here and it's time to update you on all the latest news and reminders for our CVOA members. First, thank you to all of our pool attendees who have been so kind and welcoming to our new security providers, MAV Event Services. We hope that you have been enjoying the facilities, especially on these 100 degree days. We have just a few reminders for you as we go into our last two weeks of our general pool season.
Please note that smoking, vaping, and alcoholic beverages are not permitted at the Rec. Center including the pool area. Please keep these items outside the facility/pool area. Also, for everyone's safety, please keep glass outside the pool area as well.
We also ask that you please continue to limit your guests to 4 per household. The last few days have been incredibly crowded at the pool and limiting guests allows more dues paying residents to enjoy the amenities. In addition, please note that the lap pool is for lap swimming only. Please make sure that your children are also made aware of this rule and respectful of security guards when they need to remind swimmers.
The lap pool will be open in September thanks to the positive feedback we've received from our owners! Just keep swimming!
Some of our homeowners have expressed concern about voles and gophers invading their property. While the board understands that it is incredibly frustrating, we do not have the finances or ability to exterminate. CVOA includes over 7 miles of desert area and many homes back up to them. Currently, much of it is mowed twice per year and treatments are done for specific invasive weeds. Some of these areas are hilly and full of rocks which make mowing and other maintenance virtually impossible. However, we are currently looking into natural solutions to this problem and will make this an ongoing discussion.
If you own a property that connects to these desert areas, there are ways that you can mitigate these invaders to your property. Digging a small trench under your fence and placing chicken wire or other barriers can prove to be helpful. Other natural solutions like caster oil pellets spread through the yard can also be effective in deterring these pests.
If you have an ACC request (paint, roof and other architectural requests) please note that the committee will not be holding their twice monthly meetings for the foreseeable future, but will be approving and responding to these requests in a timely manner.
As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns. We welcome our owners at all of our board meetings on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Thank you and have a wonderful week!
