V. Committee Report

  • Social Events/Neighborhood Watch/Newsletter – Lisa Walker reported:
    • The Neighborhood Watch program is still going strong with special current focus on providing continued crime alerts and educational materials from the Washington County Sheriffs Department. Ken Walker completed his attendance of the Washington County Sheriffs Department’s Citizen’s Academy in the month of June. He reported that it was very interesting, and he learned about all the different department’s functions. In support of the Neighborhood Watch Program we discussed further defining the project of incorporating a Disaster Recovery program. Mike Foster suggested we engage with Michele Grote of Thrive Life. Michele has confirmed she will be attending our HOA Annual meeting on October 22, 2013 to do a presentation and over view of her product and services.
    • The Social Committee: Our July 4th Arbor Ridge and CWN social event went very well.   Arbor Ridge hosted the hot dog stand, and gave out over 500 hot dogs.  We had 31 volunteers from Arbor Ridge, which was so much appreciated.   The next scheduled event is August 6th (The National Night Out Event, which is also a CWN joint event in support of the Neighborhood Watch Program) and the last event of the year is going to be The Holiday Lighting Contest in the month of Dec.2013
  • Landscape – Discussion:
    • Tom Wilkinson, reported he worked with ShowPlace Landscaping to define certain sprinklers to be shut off (also to fix broken sprinters) and to change the watering schedule where needed to cut down on the water expenditures.
    • In the common area there was a dead tree, ShowPlace managed the removal.
    • A tree was topped off (broke off) and may have been a potential vandalism.
    • There will be new Arborvitae planted in needed area.  It was motion, and motioned second to approve $505.00 for this project to be implemented.
    • The Biggest project is still being managed forward, The Davey Tree Project. An oversight was made, but amended to report correctly on the report by Ruth. There will be a spread sheet available to defineeach tree’s physical address. There are 78 trees for removal this year. 28 are located on Arizona Drive, and 13 located on Desert Canyon. We discussed the importance of the impact of the appearance of these areas, to be discussed and reviewed carefully. Also, a discussion took place on marking/tagging the trees or curbs with paint. For accuracy there will be a GPS locater for the tree removal project. Trees are scheduled (and home owners will be notified) that August 2013 will be the beginning of the tree removal, and planting to occur in Sept. 2013 and October 2013.
