On an update to our previous post on yard waste pick-up: The HOA board has been in touch with Waste Pro and confirmed about their change to pick-ups.
Waste Pro will pick up leaves/yard waste in plastic bags, but will not take the bags. They will empty you yard waste into their truck and leave the bags behind. If you want to have them pick up everything, you will need to use biodegradable yard waste bags.
And don’t forget that this Saturday (March 30th) is our Community Garage Sale starting at 8 AM.
Due to issues at the gate with visitors not being added to residents’ visitors lists, a change has been made in procedures:
Envera will now attempt only 1 phone call to the person they are there to see. If there is no answer, the visitor will be asked to move from the kiosk and call their visitor. This will prevent cars backing up in the visitor’s lane.
Please put your visitors on your list. This includes Uber, Lyft, and taxi drivers. If you do not have their name, please be ready to answer your phone when Envera calls to verify.
Please be vigilant!
There was bear activity in our community last night. A resident’s garbage can was destroyed by a bear in the early A.M. hours; the bear attacked it to get at the garbage inside. The bear was caught on the resident’s video camera.
- Please keep your trash & recycling cans inside your garage
- Do not confront a bear if you see it
This happened at a home on the perimeter of the development next to the wooded area, but if the bear is in the community it could explore further in if attracted by garbage you have put in your trash can.
If you need to replace your trash or recycling can due to a hungry bear, or a different reason, please see our Trash/Recycling page for the phone number to call for a replacement.
There have been many instances noted lately of residents mowing their lawn and not picking up the leaves and grass clippings left in the streets. Clippings not picked up eventually wash into the storm drains and can cause them to clog.
If our sewer drains have to be cleaned out due to build up of yard waste, the HOA will have no recourse but to put that cost into a special assessment that comes out of the finances of the community, possibly leading to increases in HOA dues. The community is already paying for services and repairs to the landscape due to the extremely cold weather we had last winter (landscape replacement, repair to bust irrigation pipes), the cost of having the sewers cleaned out is a major expense we don’t want to have to also pay for.
Lightning has damaged the front gate system communications and the arms have been deactivated. The repair service has been called and we hope to have them repaired as quickly as possible.
Starting today, Tuesday June 26th, we will have an ice cream truck visiting our community starting at 5:30 PM. It will visit each Tuesday at the same time for the summer. Come out and beat the heat!
