Manager’s Report 7.27.17

Greetings Golden Vista!

It appears that we are experiencing a strong monsoon season this year. The storms have been occurring frequently, and on Sunday night we had a storm come in that lasted until Monday afternoon. Apache Junction received quite a bit of flooding, and the roads looked like rivers. The retention area was filled to the brim, but thankfully there is no damage to report.

I’d like to introduce you to our two newest team members, JD Baker and Jesse Wirries. They have joined the maintenance program and bring a variety of skills to the table. We welcome these young men to Golden Vista!

The 6” main backflow valve will be under repair on Tuesday, August 1st from 9AM to 11AM; so, for those two hours the water to the entire resort will be shut off. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience during this essential repair. We would recommend having jugs of water set aside ahead of time, or simply plan to be out of the resort for the morning.

We’re almost through July, and August is just around the corner. Take care all, and have a great rest of the week!

Manager’s Report 7.20.17

Greetings, I hope this letter finds you all doing well. I would like to announce we have a new security officer, but a face you are used to. Ted Moody, one of our maintenance staff members has accepted an offer to transition to our security team. Ted has done this before in a temporary scenario and we’re excited to have Ted in this new position. This transition should happen in the next week or so.

A resident brought it to our attention that the Golden Age Passes that allow you into any national park for free are going from their previous price of $10 to $80 starting August 1st. This would be a great thing to get a hold of before the price change goes into effect. I thought this was some great info to forward on. For more info about the pass, click here.

I have received some feedback from residents concerning painting over the art paintings on some of the walls throughout the resort. Allow me to correct the thinking behind this issue. We are not painting over the paintings for the sake of eliminating them; we are painting over them because we must repair the stucco on the walls. To do so there is no way of saving the art work. We try to keep the artwork as long as possible but unfortunately, they cannot last due to the eventual and inevitable need for wall repair. I hope this helps explain our reasoning, and I’m sorry for any inconvenience.

We currently have 108 occupied lots in the resort. I hope you are all enjoying your summer, here and abroad. Take care and you’ll hear from me again soon.

Golden Vista Resort tennis court improvements complete.

Greetings Golden Vista,

I would like to remind you that there will be two vacancies for the Board of Directors opening this coming season and it’s never too early to put your name in. You can even go on Golden Vista’s website and apply online.

On to the projects: there is a picture of the completed tennis courts above and as you can see they look great! The other projects are coming right along and the palm tree trimming is getting closer to completion. Much of the main buildings have been painted and maintenance is staying busy in that regard. We decided to improve the look of the ARC office which has really needed a new touch for a while. I’ll have pictures of that soon.

It is reported that Saturday is only supposed to be 99 degrees and we are all rejoicing as if a cool front is blowing in. That’s sad. Anyway, the storms are slowly starting to come in which are bringing the humidity with them. We have not suffered any damage but resorts close to us have received severe damage, even up to 40 trees being uprooted in Gold Canyon.

Well, that is all for now but there is much more to come. Take care and enjoy your weekend everyone.

Jeff Elkins, Resort Manager
