With the record heat we have been having it is no wonder that the swimming pools are seeing large crowds of families with kids. With the large turnouts we seem to be experiencing an increased number of pool rule violations. We do not enjoy penalizing violators but the rules are in place to ensure that everyone can enjoy our nice pools- especially with the hot weather, even if it is a “dry heat”.
If you were wondering what was sprayed along Silverbell Road in the town right of way I can inform you that the town hydro seeded their property with an array of seeds- much like was planted in the right of way at the town park at Silverbell and Cortaro. While it was an attempt to vegetate the sparse area I have questions as to why they seeded with highly invasive and highly allergenic plants. Bursage (ragweed), Green Spangle top and Indian Wheat. The association has made every effort to not plant trees and plants that do not cause allergic reactions for our residents as well as not allowing invasive varieties to be planted in our community. It is regrettable that the town did not ask for our input before proceeding- especially with the ragweed.
I would like to thanks all our “neighbors” who respect this community and show it by the little things they do. Keeping their yards neatly pruned and weed free, keeping their dogs on leash at Windmill Park so as to not infringe on others enjoyment of the park, picking up after their dogs and following the pool rules while using the pools and just being a good neighbor. Too often I mention the issues of vandalism and infractions of the rules and would like to thank those of you who are good neighbors.
We are having vandals turning off irrigation valves throughout the community which has resulted in having to replace plants because of no water to them. If you see anyone messing around our irrigation that is not driving a Complete Landscaping truck please take down any info to identify them as this is a needless cost due to their actions.
Have a safe and enjoyable summer
