Land Development Activity Underway on Lone Mountain Parkway

Posted to Association News by Adam Testa

You might have noticed land development activity has started along Lone Mountain Parkway. The Vistancia developer is pleased to announce David Weekley Homes and William Ryan Homes recently closed on two of the four remaining parcels in The Village at Vistancia.

 Located north of Lone Mountain Parkway and east of El Mirage Road, these two land sales are the first of four builder transactions to be finalized this summer. David Weekley Homes purchased 74  70’x125’ lots and William Ryan Homes purchased 87 53’x115’ lots.

 The remaining two parcels, which will bring 163 additional lots to The Village at Vistancia, are currently under contract with builders and will be announced upon closing in August. Estimated grand openings are planned for mid-2018.

 For community and development updates, visit the Vistancia Information Center at the guard-gated entrance of Blackstone at Vistancia, open daily from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., or call 623-933-6233. The Vistancia Information Center is located at the entrance of Blackstone at Vistancia.

Monsoon Season is Finally Here

Posted to Landscaping Tips by Adam Testa

This past weekend saw the first effects of monsoon season and brought high winds and some much-needed rainfall to the Valley. Take advantage of the rain and turn your irrigation controllers off for a few days to save water. As I was walked to my vehicle earlier this week, the ground was saturated and the forecast looks partly cloudy through Friday.

Evaluate damage to trees by looking for broken branches that might have snapped from strong winds experienced this weekend. If you noticed a branch has broken, follow the damage back to the trunk of the tree and try to make a clean cut by the trunk. Look for cross branching and heavy limbs that may need to be reduced in weight to allow winds to pass through the tree, rather than create a wind sail and break later from high winds.

In the upcoming weeks, be proactive and look for landscape issues that might create hazards by walkways, streets or your roof.  A little prevention will go a long way this time of year.
