It has been another month of our Arizona Monsoon Season and it has been nice to see a few raindrops hit our streets and so far no major damage to the common areas or properties have been reported. As I am sure you may have noticed we have been having the annual palm tree trimming project in motion to keep the neighborhood looking sharp! Please be cautious of the crew and large trucks if you are walking or driving around the neighborhood.
The City of Tempe has authorized a pickup for our 4th Monday of the month (August 25th) to include both normal rubbish as well as debris due to the monsoon storms that have passed through the Tempe area. So, if you have any house items to get rid of or want to do a major pruning in your yard this is the weekend to do it and have out on your street before 6AM on Monday morning. The e-mail sent from the city is as follows for your viewing…
This is a friendly reminder that due to the severity of storm damage in the area, your August pick up is a MIXED WASTE (uncontained trash and green waste) collection. Mixed waste items should be placed out for collection no later than 6 a.m. on Monday, August 25. You can place out everything you always could – green waste, old screen doors, broken pottery, you name it.
- If you have alley collection, acceptable items must be placed on your side of the alley. All materials must be stacked as neatly as possible, parallel to your alley and at least two feet away from any solid waste container, gas meter, telephone or cable TV box, or other utility junction box.
- Secure all trash, grass and animal waste in plastic bags and place inside the trash container with lid closed. This prevents littering and odors. In general, items that can fit in the trash bin should be placed in the bin, not on the ground.
- Cardboard boxes should be cut and placed in blue recycling bin or taken to your nearest neighborhood recycling drop off site. Visit http://www.tempe.gov/recycling drop-off site locations for the location nearest you.
- Use the closest trash container. If that container is full, use the next adjacent one.
- Household hazardous waste – such as paint, motor oil, lawn and pool chemicals – should be taken to the Household Products Collection Center, 1320 E. University Drive, open Fridays from 7 a.m. to noon and Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Do not place these items in trash or recycling bins.
- Do not place dirt, rock, concrete, bricks, blocks, asphalt, roofing materials and construction debris in trash or recycling bins. Disposal options include renting a city construction debris roll-off container, taking materials to a transfer station or the Household Products Collection Center.
- All appliances, including those with Freon – like refrigerators and freezers – can be taken to the Household Products Collection Center for proper disposal. For more appliance options, visit www.tempe.gov/appliances.
- Slash the Trash! For eco-friendly alternatives to reduce, reuse and recycle what you’re thinking of throwing out, visit our website.

As always we are trying to improve efficiencies within the community and one of the ways to do that is through databasing our maintenance information. A new section on the website has been created for Vendors and for our management company to submit invoices and log specific areas within the community that have had installs/repairs/or routine maintenance. The information is then archived into an easily accessible database. This should allow us to maintain a proactive approach on items needing attention throughout the community and ultimately save the community money in doing so.
There is also a section for Vendors that The Oasis uses to register their business information to be on our vendor list when the community needs service. We will then take the appropriate vendors and ask them for bids on the service work that needs completion. This will also help the community maintain a competitive database of vendors allowing us quality workmanship on services rendered.
As many of you have probably seen, the first business going into the Elliot/Country Club Way (Soon to be Shutterfly Way) corner is a Smash Burger. The property management company continues to be very helpful in meeting any needs the community has. Keep in mind on the north end of Country Club Way(Soon to be Shutterfly Way) there will be construction starting for the new Shutterfly building that will be backing up to the SRP Canal. Proper notices will be given to the homeowners when there will be some increased noise due to construction. Information should be provided on those notices but if there is a major issue you may contact us to seek out the appropriate connection for you.
Hope all of these information updates are helpful to the residents of this wonderful community. Keep in mind our annual meeting is coming up in September so please show up and support your community and get the 411 on everything that has been going on this past year! I want to reach out and say a special thanks to our Board Member Dan Crawford. He has served on this board for many years and we appreciate his dedication to the community. You duty and commitment to the community is much appreciated and we hope to continue on making this community the best it can be. Thanks Dan and we wish you the best at kicking back as a dues paying resident!
