VCA Common Areas – Water Conservation Measures
The Board implemented several water conservation measures to respond to the recent Town of Oro Valley amendment changes to the town’s water conservation code. The Board approved replacements of several dated irrigation controllers, and not over seeding several common areas to reduce water consumption. Along with these measures, a cost benefit analysis will be implemented immediately to monitor with meters the seasonal water consumption of VCA common areas, which could help reduce annual water costs.
Paper Shredding Event
The Board approved the continuation of a previous Rancho Vistoso community service to shred personal documents for residents. This event will take place Saturday November 13th at the VCA Onsite Office from 8:00am-12:00pm (or until the truck is full). The office is located at 945 W. Vistoso Highlands Drive Oro Valley, AZ. If you have any questions please call (520) 354-2729.
Park Ramada Reservation Program
The Board approved further details on reserving ramada space at Wildlife Ridge Park and Hohokam Park, managed by the Vistoso Community Association (VCA). The VCA Office will begin taking ramada reservations on October 11, 2021. Ramada reservations can be made within a 6-month period by Vistoso Community Association residents only. A Reservation Request Form must be completed by the VCA resident to reserve the park ramada. The reservation request form is available at the VCA office site location, 945 W Vistoso Highlands Drive, Oro Valley, AZ, or you may make a reservation online in the FirstService Resident Portal https://vistoso.connectresident.com/. You can also contact the office at 520 354-2729 to arrange pick up of the reservation form.
In response to the popularity of Pickleball and requests for pickleball courts, the Board approved the formation of a committee to study the costs of converting existing tennis/basketball courts versus building new pickleball courts in VCA common areas. Residents interested in volunteering to be on the Pickleball study committee are asked to contact the VCA site office at 520 354-2729 for details.
Update of VCA Compliance Violations
The cumulative total of CC&R violations in 2021 has exceeded 700+ within the Vistoso Community Association. The primary violations consist of continuous overnight street parking, marginal front yard landscape maintenance, string lighting, and leaving trash cans on the curb for an extended (days) period of time. The VCA Board encourages residents to be mindful of these violations and the fines related to these violations. These violations are preventable and ask residents to be respectful to the neighborhood they live in.
