Observed the first Monday in September, Labor Day is an annual celebration of the social and economic achievements of American workers. The holiday is rooted in the late nineteenth century, when labor activists pushed for a federal holiday to recognize the many contributions workers have made to America’s strength, prosperity, and well-being.
School buses are once again a familiar sight on Oro Valley streets. Drivers are reminded to be especially mindful of children waiting for their bus.
As a reminder to everyone on our community, school buses are not allowed on our private streets. If you happen to see a school bus in our community, please note the date, time and bus number, and notify our HOA Manager. Our manager will notify the school district’s transportation dispatcher to advise drivers that the pickup/drop-off spot is at the entrance to our community.
Monsoon season runs from June 15 through September 30. Are your ready? Here is a short check list to prepare for this annual event.
Emergency Contact Info:
Are you planning to be away for the summer?
Have you left emergency contact information with our HOA Manager? Storm damage to your home can be lessened if we can contact you quickly; so you can begin the process of damage mitigation and repair.
Check the condition of your roof and gutters. Broken or missing tiles; and clogged drainage ways can cause roof leakages.
Keep a working flash light or two on hand.
Keep a battery operated radio for weather updates and emergency information.
Unlike landlines, cell towers may or may not work during power outages; be aware that your cell phone may not function. It definitely will not work on a dead battery. Keep a booster battery handy and charged.
You can use to your vehicle’s electrical system to recharge cell phone batteries.
Trim large overhanging branches. High winds and downdrafts can split or topple a tree.
“Beans” Clean-up your yard before storm water carries these down the street to your neighbor’s yard.
Wind-blown yard furniture is a hazard. Anchor it down or stow it away.
Roadways and Washes: Flooded roads and washes can sweep away vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians. DO NOT attempt a crossing while water is flowing or drive around protective barriers.
Deputies respond to 12 to 24 water rescues every year, don’t be one of them.

2021 Expenses Expenses were within budget, with a 1% positive variance. Cost overruns in insurance and landscaping were offset in cost reductions in other areas. The three major expenses for the association are Administrative, Landscaping, and Reserve Funding.
2022 Budget This 2022 budget is a 5.5% increase from 2021, basically covering inflationary increases; and an increased percentage of assessments dedicated to the reserve fund. This increase is to have sufficient funds for a road resurfacing expense in 2027.
The three largest expenses still remain as Administrative, Landscaping, and Reserve Fund Requirements, respectively.
Adjournment Without any further business to discuss, the annual meeting was adjourned and the Organizational Meeting to select officers was called to order.
