Manager’s Report 8.18.17

Greetings Golden Vista!

All is well here in the valley of the sun, and we continue to ramp up for the coming season. Jan is super busy in the activities office preparing for shows, taking orders, selling tickets, and more. Maintenance has been painting almost everything that doesn’t move and the facilities are really looking nice. We continue to mark items off our list and I’m very pleased with our amazing team and the work that is being accomplished this summer.

If you’re not registered on the new website, here’s how to do it. When you go to the new site, click on “Owner Login” at the top. It will take you to the “Owner Login Page”. Put in your email address and create a password, then instead of clicking on “Login” click on “REGISTER”. It will then take you through the process to complete registration. Once done it will take a short time for your registration to be approved. You will get an email notification saying that you’ve been approved.

You can stay connected with your friends and neighbors by joining the Golden Vista Resort Residents Facebook group, the official private group for owners and residents. We also invite you to ‘Like’ our public-facing page Golden Vista Resort Active 55+ Community which presents our community to prospective owners and residents.

Upon your return, clubs will be asked to fill out a new form that details all the officers of your club including the chair, the vice chair, and so on; as well as who are monitors for the club. This will help us be more efficient in the front office when needing to communicate with the clubs.

This time of year, I do not usually list our lot occupancy numbers because we hover around 100 lots most of the summer with a small number coming and going throughout the apocalyptic heat. This year the unusual humidity has received more notice than the heat.

I received word from the city of Apache Junction this week that they will have a date for me soon on the installation of the sidewalk on Baseline. I will keep you all informed of those details as they come in. We’re looking forward to that improvement.

Until next time, have a wonderful weekend.

I hope this letter finds you all doing well. We have had an exciting morning here as we had a water leak early on. The water was off and the contractors were on site by 8AM repairing the leak. I appreciate the patience of those effected in the southeast section of the resort.

If you haven’t yet visited the resort’s new website, I invite you to do so. Some of the features include;

· Larger, darker text for improved readability

· Improved mobile usability

· Improved site navigation

· Faster access to popular content

· Seating charts updated with availability

· A new in-park classified ad system

· For the second year you can purchase event tickets online

Last year 326 of the resort residents were registered. Since the new site launched last week that number has grown by nearly 200 to 525.

The web team is still building some pages but we wanted to launch to support the Activities Department’s announcement of their great new calendar.

This page will introduce the new site to you and answer questions you may have. I think you will agree that the new site looks amazing.

I wish you all a great continuing summer and as always do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. Take care.
