Trash Pickup Goes Weekly

6.4.2024 - Trash pickup moves to a weekly schedule this week, dropping from two days to one. Trash will be picked up Fridays.

To help prevent bin overflows, please cut or collapse cardboard boxes, sticks and wood, or other items that take up room. The maintenance team will periodically check circle dumpsters and crush trash with the bobcat tractor, but that takes time and gas to do. So, helping cut down bulk will keep things running smoothly.

The reduced pickups saved $600 per month after a pilot experiment last summer.  Twice a week pickups will resume in the fall when winter visitors travel back.

Allo technicians near Circle 6 prepare fiber-optic lines to insert into already trenched pipes throughout the campus.

Allo Is Installing Fiber

5.31.2024 - Allo techs are in the process of installing the actual glass-fiber tubes for the company's high-speed fiber-optic network in Los Lagos Vistas. Once the glass-fiber installation is completed, Allo will install a couple of test boxes for HOA approval, then begin individual unit installations.

POOL CLOSING DATE DELAYED 

5.20.2024 - A glitch with the contractor has delayed pool maintenance and upgrades, so there is no date for the pool closing yet. 

The planned repairs include new cool decking and general maintenance. The pool won't be drained, but covered.  Watch for details here.

Asphalt Repair Schedule Released

5.2.2024 Asphalt sealing is slated June 18-25. The project will seal asphalt cracks then cover all the campus roads with a fresh coat of sealant.

The work will seal cracks and gaps in roads and parking lots with a hot-applied, rubberized crack sealant, then cover the asphalt for a finished look.  The project will include striping for parking spaces.

The cost-effective pavement preservation prevents water damage, potholes, and other pavement damage. It also slows asphalt deterioration and extends pavement life.

For specific common areas around buildings or circle parkways, rock will be provided.

Please Don't Feed Wildlife

Ground feeding birds or throwing out snacks to rabbits attracts rats and mice and hungry predators, such as coyotes and bobcats. Please only feed birds from appropriate bird feeders and don't leave discarded fruit, vegetables, or meat on the grass. Residents have seen puppies snatched and killed, and successful predator hunts leave carcasses exposed attracting more vermin. Let nature do what nature does.
