Street Maintenance

The Board of Directors has contracted with Cactus Asphalt to perform maintenance on our streets. This work will be performed in two phases.

Phase I – Crack Sealing, which will be performed as soon as the temperature turns colder, and surface cracks are at their widest. We will provide advance notice when all vehicles must be off the streets when this work is to be performed. This work should only require half a day and not significantly disrupt traffic.

Phase II – Surface Sealing, will be performed in the Spring or early Summer; when dare I say it; “Summer temperatures return.” A hot surface temperature is needed for optimum coating adhesion. More information of this phase of the project will be given when the date becomes closer.

Towing Contract Signed

The Board has signed a contract with A&B Towing, for future towing services involving vehicles parked in violation of the Association’s Parking Policy

Vehicle towing as an enforcement tool, will not become effective until the Board clarifies and updates the Resolution of the Board of Directors Regarding the Imposition of Fines, and provides sufficient notice of this enforcement tool to all owners and residents.

This process will take several weeks to implement.

 

Parking Do’s and Dont’s

Every Board meeting brings up questions concerning parking in the community.  The CC&Rs do not permit any overnight parking on the streets or in the driveways.  Starting back in 1998, at the beginning of homeowner control of the HOA, this parking ban was considered too restrictive.  

The Board formulated parking regulations that allowed limited overnight and driveway parking within the community.  Those parking regulations have evolved over time, and can be found under the “Documents” page of this site.  Many of these regulations mimic the Code of the Town of Oro Valley, for public streets.  

By HOA standards, these regulations are quite liberal and the Board encourages everyone to review and follow them.  Let’s be good neighbors.

15 MPH Speed Limit

The Board is considering posting a 15 MPH speed limit on our streets.  It has been generally accepted that the unposted 25 MPH limit is too fast to travel safely through the neighborhood. 

Additionally, the Board is checking with the Oro Valley Police Department to see whether they will enforce the lower, posted, limit on our streets.
