Green Grass Coming Up!

Back in April we mentioned that the grass would be a bit brown for a couple of weeks... then back to green.

It's baaaack!

Stillwater (the association's landscape vendor) said the cooler weather we had in April delayed some of the "greening up", but now most of the Bermuda grass in the green-belt areas has rejuvenated.  There are a couple of areas still struggling to get fully green, but last week Stillwater was out aerating the turf areas and applying some fertilizer, and with a week or two of higher-than-normal watering volume, everything should be nice for the summer.

June Board Meeting

The June regular board meeting will be held this coming Thursday June 27, 2019 at 7pm.  It will be at the Palm Valley Community Center located about 1/2 mile west of the intersection of Litchfield Road and Palm Valley Blvd.  Homeowners are always welcome and encouraged to attend.

The Design Review Committee will meet at 6:30pm, just before the board meeting and in the same location.  Anyone with Architectural Requests is invited to attend.

Newsletter and Other News

In the last week or two, homeowners - as members of the association - should have received two items in the postal mail.

First, the Summer Newsletter, with a list of the remainder of the year's meetings - including the Annual Member Meeting currently scheduled for September 26, 2019 (more news on that in the next few months), and the 5 remaining regular board meetings.  Look for the double-sided blue sheet of paper and take a look at all of the articles.

Secondly, you should have received a letter from Jody Cote, VP of the West Valley officer of AAM, announcing the change in Rio Crossing's Community Manager.  Wendi Shepard's contact information was in that letter, and also in the email announcement last week.  Wendi will be at our June board meeting.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me via email any time, but either replying to this message or going to the Feedback page on our web site.

Common Area Block Walls

In the 2018 Year In Review I mentioned that we've done a number of maintenance projects to get the common areas back in good shape, including rock replenishment (3 of 5 zones now complete), sanding and repainting of all the mailbox units, and painting the steel railing along the drainage walls.

Now we're in the process of fixing up the common area walls, which I admit look particularly bad in several areas.  The contract to do wall repairs has been awarded and should be in progress very soon.  This project will patch existing move some hazardous rebar and metal spikes, and do some other minor repairs.  At this month's meeting, the board will review 3 proposals to paint the block walls.  This will only cover the "areas of association responsibility" (as defined in the CC&Rs), but should cover all of the street-facing walls and walls facing green-belts and common areas.  But once this is awarded and completed, we'll finish up the rock replenishment and most of the routine community maintenance will be up-to-date.
