More road work is coming soon- as soon as we have dates this site will be updated. The Dues section has been updated to reflect current fees for credit card payments.
June 21, 2019- Happy Summer Solstice neighbors! At our HOA meeting this last week we were joined by a few of our community members. We discussed the wet winter and spring and, now, the dry summer upon us! Fire hazards are high, especially if the brittle bush that is prevalent throughout our neighborhood were to ignite. Here are some guidelines to protect your home from potential wildfires. https://disastersafety.org/wildfire/protect-your-home-from-wildfire/
And, if your property has a lot of overgrowth along the perimeter, do your neighbor a favor by clearing that as well.
April 22, 2019- LBVE HOA will have our annual dumpster again (included in our contract with Republic Services.....Hooray!) in May from May 17th to the 20th. Please remember that this dumpster is ONLY for yard debris (branches, weeds, organic plants......NOT plastics, furniture, refrigerators, etc. Please don't place anything outside of the dumpster or in the driveway, and absolutely no non-plant life inside the dumpster. Location will be 4360 N Camino Vinorama. Thanks to our neighbors Julie and Joe that are allowing us to place on their lot.

River Rd., in the River Center Shopping Center. There will be a 30-minute “Get To Know Your Neighbors” social period before the formal meeting at 6:30 PM. Official notice and printed ballot will be coming in a separate mailing.
November 13, 2018- Many changes happening in our neighborhood. First and foremost, Tom and Beverly Collier have purchased a home outside of LBVE. I know many of you are gasping at that! Tom has resigned from the LBVHOA Board. The remaining board members are working through the many functions that Tom has performed for our community for so many years. Please continue to use our website for direct contact to board members. In addition, Mr. Ault agreed to serve as board president until 2019; Mr. Anderson agreed to serve as recording secretary, and Ms. Weber agreed to serve as treasurer through the balance of this calendar year until the HOA Annual Meeting. Please consider volunteering to run for office or in any other capacity. We do want to extend gratitude and appreciation for the years of hard work and devotion to our neighborhood to Tom and Bev. They are not far from LBV and I am sure we will see them again.......but not on the board. Also- please be aware that we have a Facebook page that many of us utilize for many community comments. Please consider what you can do for our community. Thanks!
