FYI…due to some pending business, we will be doing additional board meeting on 7/24 at the Tot Lot at 7 pm, with a rain date of 7/31.
This will not be a long meeting.
Fellow ARC Owners & Residents,
Hope everyone is well and you are beating the summer heat. Wanted to pass this message from Beth and our fellow neighbor John.
Another roof inspection has netted major repairs to the siding and rake board. This is a major entry point for critters not to mention water. We strongly encourage for every one to collaborate with their adjoining neighbor on this issue, and go a roof inspection if you have done it recently. If there is enough interest, we could schedule Michael Smith (one of the guys who did good work to fix roofs after the wind storm) to come and look at roofs
Please reach out to board for more info.
As you might have noticed, some of the parking space lines having been peeling off. We are getting it repainted and have been given the date of June 4th for this event.
Most likely, as before cars will need to be gone the by 8 am that day and not allowed back till 3 pm .
Please note and mark the date on your calendars.

Hi Everyone! I’m sure everyone is waiting eagerly for spring…so thought I’d share these pics, that were taken by Kevin Powell. -Ram PS: Don’t put away your shovels just yet though…heard it might snow on Saturday 🙂
Jeff @ 1571 (and his team) are looking to build a couple of small libraries for the ARC neighborhood. One of the kids and One for adults. You might have seen them before in other neighborhoods. Essentially, this would like a free book exchange/borrowing setup. Once it’s setup, you can donate/share your books if you wish.
If you have any wood or other building materials you want to donate, and/or help Jeff (firstname.lastname@example.org), please let us know.
We like to announce the date for our Annual Community Yard Sale (where you can sell all your extra stuff you decide you don’t want during spring cleaning )
Time: 8 am to 12 noon
Just price your goods and setup shop in your front yard. Free free to tell your neighbors and friends. Contact Jeff or Tory (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org,) if you have any questions.
Mark your calendars. We will send another remind email the week before.
Dear Neighborhood Families,
One of the best things about our neighborhood is that it is kid and family friendly. For many of us, that’s precisely why we moved here and live here. Seeing kids playing outside on a beautiful day is an asset we all benefit from. However, to keep that goal, we need to help our kids to be mindful of the impact they have on our common spaces and neighbors’ yards. As board members, we sometimes hear complaints from the community about property destruction.
Most recently, some kids have been witnessed sitting on saplings to break them and use them for building tee-pees in the central area behind houses 1478, 1480, 1482, … on one side and houses 1554, 1556, 1558, … on the other side. While, it is clear these kids are not malicious, and their actions are unintentional, we need to educate them that breaking trees for play isn’t okay. As this causes damage to the space, when we are in the process of re-planting to stop erosion. When neighbors try to say something to the children, it doesn’t seem to get heard, as would be expected. However, when parents say something to their own kids the impact is greater.
Parents, please consider talking to your kids about this. We are happy to engage and discussion to provide details and explain the problem. Thanks to the larger community for speaking up. Please reach out to Sarah (email@example.com) and Beth (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details and to discuss how we can rectify this together.
Let’s keep our community family friendly and beautiful. It’s to all our benefit. We are open to hearing your thoughts, as communication keeps our neighborhood a really good place to live.
Greetings fellow ARC’ers
Hope everyone is keeping warm and surviving the crazy temperature swings
Wanted to mention a few things:
1) HOA Meeting Dates: below are the dates for upcoming HOA meetings, that is open to all homeowners:
- Time will be 7 pm and location will be Armstrong Elementary School
2) Dog Poop & Cigarette butts: We receive many such complaints. Reminder that it is the responsibility of dog owners to pick up your dog’s poop diligently. We have kids that play here and we all live here, please be neighborly and do your part. If you see something, perhaps engage them politely & gently and ask them to do their part to clean up behind their pet
3) Trash & Recycling: Remember to put all trash in containers, so animals don’t get into them. And please cover recyclables especially if it’s going to be windy (like today). Again please be neighborly and if you see a empty water bottle rolling around somewhere, please consider picking it up and putting again in your recycle bin
Kindly remember, HOA board are not enforcers, but rather unpaid bureaucrats that need the community’s help in such matters
Happy Winter and looking forward to the Spring
As per the email blast, the follow up meeting of homeowners and HOA board will be at Nov 28th at 7 pm at Armstrong Elementary school on Nov 28th.
If anyone has any speicfic nuanced Q’s about the Erosion and/or Arbor studies, please email them to Ram or Beth ahead of time.
