Just reaching out with a few of our latest updates for you. The community is looking great so far this spring as summer creeps upon us. Keep in mind if you want to look beyond these posts you can look at the meeting minutes as well as lake reports that are received monthly and show the status of the lake. Archive
Just a friendly reminder that Maricopa County has a leash law stating that all pets are required to be on a leash. We have had some recent complaints about this and just want to pass on the information. For issues call Animal Care and Control or the Police.
Some of you may be draining your pools sometime soon. Just a reminder of the City of Tempe Guidelines. Residential properties do not require a permit for draining. It is highly recommended to retain all of the water onto your property for flood irrigation after making sure the pool does not have any chemical in it. See the following link of the guidelines published by the City of Tempe regarding this issue. Please refrain from draining onto the streets and retain as much water on property as possible.

We have taken another big step in working toward community efficiency in regards to the landscape management. We are moving forward with the Somerset contract to include the current items but adding large tree trimming, lighting, and basically all landscape management, canal weed trimming, soon to be forecasting for new additions of granite on a more frequent schedule. This is a great move for this community and should allow the board to decrease liability on the HOA and have a better tracking system to monitor the progression of the neighborhood as time goes on.
Our Community Liaison’s continue to do an excellent job staying on top of general maintenances around the community primarily involving the water feature and entrance fountain pumps. I am happy to report the lake levels are looking great, the entrance foundations are looking very clean and we are getting very proactive on the management of this community through this added position. We are starting to evaluate the main pump in the Pump House off of Los Feliz that runs the irrigation for the entire community common areas. We have had the current pump for approximately 10 years and all seems to be going well. We are getting close to need to rebuild the main shaft that lowers into the wet vault and pumps out the water for the irrigation. This is a 10 day job without water so the plan is to coordinate this upgrade/repair in the fall when over-seeding is being done before we have water needs on the turf again. We will also take the opportunity to make some improvements on the wet vault as this area usually remains pretty static for a decade at a time.
One of our Homeowners in the neighborhood has a mother that is looking for a kidney donor. Follow this link to a flyer with more information. If you know of anyone that can help this family would be very grateful. Thank you for your consideration.
We seem to have a sizable amount of waterfowl. Although they are fun to look at they ruin the turn and defecate all over. We are asking the lake management company the best course of action for this or if they anticipate that some waterfowl will be migrating away again.
After receiving over 50+ responses the majority were against having an opening be put back in for quicker access to the retail shops in Discovery Park. The general synopsis at this point was that it would lead to more crime and transient traffic into the neighborhood. With a current opening by Shutterfly it was deemed that although the walk might be a bit further it still allows the access to that property. The responses were approximately 70% to 30% in favor of keeping the wall closed. We are sorry to those of you that wanted it the other way but for now we will be leaving the wall uninterrupted.
I hope that answers most of your inquiries to the board. Thank you all for being a part of making this community great. All contributions make a great difference in the life of this community and we appreciate all of you that contribute everyday as this community is much bigger than just the board and the management company. Have a great week everyone!
