Greetings from the Board – May 2023

Matt Wood
VCA President

“The Vistoso Community Association (VCA) Board of Directors’ primary objectives in 2023 are to make cost-effective investments in our aging infrastructure, address safety concerns in the common areas, aggressively manage our budget and expenses, improve our processes, and continue to educate our members on the value the VCA delivers to residents and businesses.”  The following VCA Board of Directors’ activities are aligned with these objectives.  

Rancho Vistoso Boulevard Lighting Pilot

The project to assess the modernization of Rancho Vistoso Boulevard street lighting has installed 12 over-head LED lighting fixtures as a pilot project to examine the cost effectiveness of lighting improvements.  The study site is on both sides of the boulevard, just north of Tangerine Avenue.  The current lights are failing and replacement parts are no longer available. We welcome member reaction to the effectiveness of these 12 lights.

Updated VCA Maps

The Board of Directors approved five updated VCA maps proposed by the Governing Documents Committee.  The maps include the VCA owned parcels; residential development parcels; non-residential development parcels; undeveloped parcels; and a recreation areas and trails map.  These maps are available for member viewing at the VCA offices or online.

Updated Architectural and Landscaping Review Guidelines

The Board also approved an updated version of the Architectural and Landscaping Review Committee Guidelines. The key objectives of the update are alignment with current legislation, state and federal codes; meeting evolving community trends and needs; clarifying definitions; and consistency with the CC&Rs.  Most importantly, these updated “Guidelines” are intended to make it easier for members to navigate the association architectural and landscaping rules when planning changes to their property.  Click HERE to view the guidelines.

Oro Valley Police Department Agreement to Patrol VCA Properties

To help improve safety and decrease vandalism in the park common areas, the Board approved the Oro Valley Police Department’s Trespass Letter of Consent agreement for a two-year period.  The agreement enables the Oro Valley Police to patrol VCA facilities, and allows them to apprehend and arrest individual’s vandalizing VCA properties.   

Focus Groups for Member Input

The Board has conducted focus groups with single family and multi-family members to get input and help better inform Board decisions.  Results of these focus groups will be published in upcoming Newsletters.  The Board will continue to keep residents informed and involved on the progress of projects important VCA members.
