A grassy space which contains a rain water ditch, located on Quivas Way, across from the golf course, adjacent to Pecos and separating Filing 3 and Filing 1.
The City of Westminster owns the swale; however, its maintenance is shared by the City and the HOA: General landscaping, around the swale, is provided by the HOA. The culverts and ditches are maintained by the city, "to provide proper drainage."
Residents are encouraged (and deeply appreciated) to volunteer to pull weeds and pick up trash in the swale.
Yes, we have our own island!
Unfortunately it is not in the tropics with a beach, but it is in a prominent place in our neighborhood: the junction of 113th Ave, Ranch Place, and Quivas Way.
Fencing and Signage
The community perimeter fencing is replaced as needed due to damage, but the entire fence is estimated to have approximately 2 years of life left before requiring total replacement (estimate 2024). This will be a significant undertaking and is the main reason HOA dues rise at least 10% each year. Also, due to the extreme cost of replacement, a special assessment is likely to occur. Signage may be evaluated for full replacement at the same time as the fence. In the interim, the Board may decide to periodically repaint the signs.
Our community makes use of public streets. If a car has current tags, and is a type of vehicle permitted in the community, then they are currently allowed to park on the street. If you notice the tags are not current, then please notify the City of Westminter Code Enforcement as this violates city code.
Be a good Neighbor: If you're unable to park in your garage or driveway, please park in front of your own home and encourage your guests to do the same. Kindly reserve "street" parking for the homeowners, and guests of homeowners, whose homes abut to that street space in front of their home.
Safety: Break-ins do occur, so please keep your car locked and take note that parking on curves/blind corners can make navigating the streets more difficult and less safe for everyone. Leaving those specific areas clear is appreciated.
Per the CC&Rs, vehicles For Sale, regardless of tags, are not permitted within the community.
