RVB Street Lights
Since there has been multiple issues with the current streetlights along Rancho Vistoso Boulevard the VCA board has opted to conduct a demo project to determine what the best solution will be on lighting needs for the community. Mountain Power Electrical Contractors installed 12 LED fixtures along Rancho Vistoso Boulevard (starting at Safeway). Mountain Power is storing the old fixtures that are still in decent shape at their storage facility. The board is currently evaluating the new fixtures and will be meeting to discuss the results and future plans on this project.

VCA New Office Signage
Territorial Signs is in the process of applying to the Town of Oro Valley for the office door, marquee and building permit signs for the new location.

Capital Projects
Irrigation – Management has submitted a pre-application for this project to the TOV. Staff will be meeting with town representatives to discuss the scope of the project.
Painting – Proposals have been received for the painting project that includes the following reserve components: #510- Common area metal fence in Vistoso Heights, #710 retention basin perimeter fence in Overlook, #2014 – Siena entry walls and gates and #1320 – Metal rails along Vistoso Highlands Dr. The board will be reviewing and acting on the bids at the April 27 meeting.
Asphalt – As a result of the weather we had to reschedule the asphalt project twice because of low temperatures. We were able to complete the Hohokam Park parking area on April 6 and the rest of the project has been rescheduled for April 25 & 26.

Erosion Projects
Big View Ct. Channel – Additional erosion and bank failure west of the original failure was identified by the WLB Group, Inc surveyors. The WLB Group is in the process of addressing.
27 Mile – The tentative date for the project was May 22, 2023. This may have to be pushed back since WLB is relooking at the design for the purpose of addressing the slope grade at the entryway to the trailhead.
Bridal Veil – VCA representatives, Town of Oro Valley Staff, representatives of adjacent landowner met to discuss the best solution to resolve the drainage repair and discharge of water onto the neighboring property.

VCA Facilities
Unfortunately, the tennis court locks at Hohokam Park, restroom lock at Wildlife Ridge Park, and the pedestrian gate at Siena has been vandalized. At the April 27 meeting, the board will consider entering into agreement with OVPD to permit police officers to patrol and arrest individuals at our community facilities.
