Mosquito Safety: Fight the Bite

SOUTHERN NEVADA HEALTH DISTRICT officials are reminding people to protect themselves from mosquitoes as they report the highest level of activity in the program’s history this early in a season. As of June 6, 2024, 91 mosquito pools, comprising 3,081 mosquitoes from 16 ZIP codes, have tested positive for West Nile virus. Two mosquito pools,

comprising 46 mosquitoes from two ZIP codes, have tested positive for the virus that causes St. Louis encephalitis.

The Health District’s Mosquito Surveillance Program has also received an increased number of complaints from the public about mosquito activity. Increased awareness and reporting of mosquito activity are continues on page 5

From the President

IF YOU ARE THE COOK and grocery shopper in your home like me, I imagine you are also frustrated that hundreds of new homes have been built North and East of Aliante, but no new grocery store. I have some good news for all of us grocery store shoppers. City Councilman Richard Cherchio told me: “. . . on the SE side of the 215 from Dorrell to the 215 then East to old Commerce at the corner of Legacy HS, there is a proposal being worked on by a developer looking to build a food store anchor with associate businesses and services. It will be a large shopping center, but aside from the food store there has been no discussion on smaller businesses wanting to participate. The food store interested right now is not completely decided, so we should not place a name to it yet, but it will be a food store to help alleviate the need for everyone to drive to Smiths by you [in Aliante] or go to Decatur or Losee. There is no shopping center at this time planned for the North side of Revere, especially on the East side which is Tule Springs home development. There is a piece of land privately owned on the NW side of 215 that currently has a sign posted for maybe lease etc.”

Councilman Scott Black, whose Ward is on the West side of Aliante, contacted Trader Joe’s and learned that they have no plans to build in North Las Vegas or anywhere else in Southern Nevada at this time. This may take a grass roots effort. One way to do that could be to subscribe to their newsletter. They ask for your zip code, so they are obviously interested in where their customers live. If we get enough subscribers in 89084, we may get a Trader Joe’s!

I have heard that Albertson’s/Smith’s has purchased the land behind the ER at Valley Vista on the corner of Elkhorn and Decatur. Also in Scott Black’s Ward, on the lot at the Northwest Corner of North Aliante Parkway and Elkhorn, the City of North Las Vegas has granted an “approved use” for a Starbucks coffee shop, a Wendy’s convenience food restaurant with drive-through and a Wing Stop convenience food store. Finally, Scott Black tells me the construction in front of the apartments on Aliante Parkway between the AM/PM and the ER is currently called Aliante Tavern project (more than likely that will not be the final name). “It will be an upscale establishment that will be over 50% sit down, no age restriction, no smoking restaurant and a partition bar/Tavern for adults 21 and up. It will be a very nice concept that will bring sit-down dining with a good full menu to the area.”

Important Decisions at the May 2024 Board Meeting

1. The Board approved a proposal in the amount of $19,180 from Gothic Landscaping for phase 1 renovation of the landscaping, plants, irrigation and rock refresh at the Ravenna entrance.

2. The Board approved a proposal from Gothic Landscaping in the amount of $1,940 to add cobble rock in a decorative pattern to the sides of the new walkway through the easement in Vialetto.

3. There is a potential safety hazard on Parcel 58 where a steep drop from the sidewalk goes down to an adjacent storm drain. The Board approved a proposal from Eby Iron Designs to fabricate, powder coat, and install a new safety guard rail.

4 The Board approved a proposal from Gothic Landscaping in the amount of $3,240 to trim a large Acacia and remove two smaller Acacias on Clayton. The trees are growing on top of each other.

5. Barbara Spoto was approved to become a member of the Social Committee and Cynthia Knight was approved to become a member of the Architectural Review Committee.

What Are Property Lines?

KNOWING THE EXACT boundaries of your property is important not only for personal reasons, but for liability reasons as well. However, property lines are not always clearly indicated or provided when you purchase a property. To determine your property lines, you can visit the Clark County Assessor’s Page at https://maps.

If you put in your address, you will be shown an image of your home and anything within the pink lines is the responsibility of the owner(s). Additionally, through the Clark County Assessor’s Page, you can see what areas in your neighborhood are the responsibility of the HOA or the City.

Committee & Board Meetings

Please scan the QR code for the desired Committee and/or Board meeting you would like to attend. Please note, some committee meetings are not open to homeowners. Only the committees open to all homeowners are provided.

Mosquito Safety: Fight the Bite

attributed to the expansion of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes throughout the region. Aedes aegypti mosquitoes are known to be aggressive daytime biters that prefer feeding on people instead of birds and are not typical vectors for West Nile virus.

West Nile virus is spread to people through the bite of an infected mosquito. About one in five people infected with West Nile virus will develop symptoms that can include fever, headache, body aches, vomiting, diarrhea

continued from cover

or rash. About one in 150 will develop more serious, sometimes fatal, illnesses. People who think they might have West Nile should talk with their health care provider.

The risk of mosquito-borne illnesses can be reduced through preventive measures. The Health District’s Fite the Bite campaign calls on people to:

• Eliminate standing water and other breeding sources around their homes. Aedes aegypti breed in small containers that collect rain or

irrigation water, such as children’s toys, wheelbarrows and plant saucers, and even bottle caps.

• Prevent mosquito bites by using an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellent. Wear loose-fitting, longsleeved shirts and pants.

• Report mosquito activity to the Health District’s surveillance program at (702) 759-1633.

To report a green pool, people should contact their local code enforcement agency. 

More Fight the Bite tips are available at: and on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website at:

New Securitas Officer

MY NAME IS DEZIRE ANDREWS, and I was born in Las Vegas, NV. I graduated from Canyon Springs High School in 2023. I have gained valuable experience working at various warehouses, including Amazon, Fanatics, and Sephora. My decision to pursue a career in security was inspired by my grandmother, who dedicated her life to the field and instilled in me a passion for it. I am eager to further my education while employed with Securitas and am grateful for the opportunity to serve the Aliante Master HOA and its residents.

Maintenance Report:

May 2024


• Between May 1st and May 8th, maintenance on common areas of Grand Teton and Aviary Way were serviced.

• Between May 9th and May 16th, maintenance on street common areas of Aliante Pkwy South and Centennial Pkwy were serviced.

• Between May 17th and May 24th, the maintenance on street common areas of Decatur, Deer Springs North, Rome and Dorrell were serviced.

• On May 28th, maintenance on Aliante Pkwy North between 215 and Grand Teton, Elkhorn between Aviary Way and Tule Springs Community entrance were serviced.

Selective Shrub Pruning:

• In the first 2 weeks of May a total of 138 trees were pruned. Pruning includes; balance canopy, clearance prune, crown raise, dead wood removal, end weight reduction. Tree species that were pruned include: Olive, Ash, Oak, Sweet Acacia, and Pine trees.

– 44 trees on Elkhorn, between Aliante Pkwy and Aviary.

– 10 trees in the median across from the ER.

– 18 trees on Rome and Decatur.

– 44 trees on Deer Springs North.

– 22 trees in Ravenna Community.

Selective Shrub Pruning: When we prune shrubs selectively, we take out individual branches to maintain the natural shape of the plant and make it healthier. Most shrubs require selective pruning, not shearing. Shearing is used to change a shrub’s natural form into a different form. Selective pruning process is key in keeping the plants looking their best without interfering with bloom cycles. As time passes, the needs of our plants throughout the community begin to change and we need to customize our approach to the pruning and general care of our plants and trees. As you know, Aliante has many different species of plants and trees, and each species grows at a different rate, some of those species required trimming at different times of the year as well.

June 2024


From May 28th to June 5th, maintenance on Aliante Pkwy North was done was performed.

• From June 6th to June 12th, maintenance on Deer Springs South - Clayton, & Brian Cram was performed

• From June 13th to June 21st, maintenance on the medians of Elkhorn will be done, and maintenance on Aviary between 215 and Elkhorn will also be done.

• From June 24th to July 1st, maintenance on Aliante Pkwy South and Centennial Pkwy will be performed.

• Fertilized all turf on property with BEST 15-15-15 fertilizer, to maintain the turf green with less water usage.

• In some of the medians around the property we sprayed the recently pruned plants with EMBARK. This is a growth regulator that is used to slow down the growth of certain plants; this is done with the intention of keeping the height of the plants low for an extended period so that we can continue to meet the Line of Sight guidelines.

• This season we haven’t had any major issues with grubs; however, we had found a few grubs in some plants that have been replaced. The number of grubs is too minimal to be concerned, but if the number of grubs in our soil grows, we will advise P&G and FSR Management.

For the remainder of June included the following.

• Continue to prune evergreen shrubs excluding Spring flowering shrubs.

• Spot-treat weeds and planters with herbicide.

• Raise mowing height to 3” on all turf in the communit.

• Deep-water all plants and trees based on soil moisture.

• Continue to spot-treat broadleaf weed in turf areas.

• Inspect irrigation system and replace worn or broken parts. continues on next page

Gothic Maintenance Report

continued from page 6

• Continue to water turf areas 6 days a week from Monday toFriday between the hours of 7 pm. and 11 am.

Infrastructure Investments Keep Drinking Water Flowing

DISTRICT (LVVWD) and the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) are planning and building infrastructure facilities to continue providing safe, reliable service to meet the community’s water needs for decades to come.

New reservoirs in the Northwest

Construction on several new reservoir and pumping station projects is currently underway by the LVVWD, including the Rome Reservoir and Pumping Station in the northwest valley.

developing plans for the Horizon Lateral Program, which will boost system reliability by adding a dual feed for the area and protecting water delivery for nearly a million existing customers.

The Horizon Lateral will help maintain reliable water deliveries if major repairs are needed on the existing South Valley Lateral—which delivers roughly 40 percent of Southern Nevada’s drinking water—or if a system outage occurs. Both pipelines will work together to ensure our water system remains one of the most dependable in the nation.

Located near West Deer Springs Way and Conquistador Street, the Rome Reservoir—with the capacity to store up to 10 million gallons of drinking water—will bolster service reliability for residents and businesses while providing critical redundancy to reduce the risk of largescale interruptions in water service.

The LVVWD is also working to complete the 5-million-gallon Centennial Reservoir near Centennial Parkway and Fort Apache Road and the 10-million-gallon Cougar Reservoir near Blue Diamond Road and Hualapai Way. These facilities will further enhance our community’s storage and pumping needs.

Bolstering reliability in Henderson

In the south valley, the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) is

The program’s primary component is approximately 30 miles of large pipe up to 10 feet in diameter. Additional components include improvements to existing infrastructure and a phased approach to construction of new transmission facilities.

The SNWA is exploring two potential pipeline routes—a preferred “south alignment” through mostly undeveloped areas, including tunneling under a portion of the Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area, and a “north alignment” through developed portions of Henderson.

No matter where you live in Southern Nevada, these and many other investments in capital improvements will help ensure safe and dependable drinking water is constantly flowing whenever you turn on the tap.

Your investment. Your water. Use it responsibly. For more information, visit and

Your Water Quality: Our Top Priority

NO MATTER WHERE you live in Southern Nevada, you can count on the safety, reliability and quality of the drinking water you draw from your tap for you and your family. In fact, our drinking water meets or surpasses all state and federal standards—and is tested more thoroughly and frequently than most bottled water.

Still, some folks might shy away from tap water due to its hard, mineral-rich taste, while others mistakenly confuse taste with safety. Rest assured, your glass of tap water is both refreshing and safe to enjoy, and its naturally occurring minerals and

Local water providers including the Las Vegas Valley Water District, the Big Bend Water District, and the cities of Boulder City, Henderson and North Las Vegas have recently published their annual water quality reports. These reports provide you with detailed information about what’s in your drinking water and reflect the results of rigorous laboratory testing and advanced treatment conducted by the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA).

In fact, the SNWA tests your water 300,000 times a year, monitoring for more regulated and unregulated contaminants than is required by law. The Federal Safe Drinking Water Act sets water-quality standards for all water purveyors; in Nevada, these standards are enforced by the State of Nevada’s Bureau of Safe Drinking Water. Southern Nevada’s drinking water is carefully treated and regularly tested to ensure it meets these stringent requirements.

electrolytes help keep you hydrated and healthy.

However, if the taste of tap water doesn’t appeal to you, there are some easy tips you can use to make your water lip-smackin’ good:

Chill: Refrigerate a pitcher of tap water to boost flavor and zap chlorine perceptions.

Flavor: Add a citrus slice for zest.

Filter: Try an activated carbon filter, like those in carafe systems, to reduce chlorine taste.

Maintain: If you have an in-home filtration system, follow its recommended maintenance schedule, including filter replacement.

Things That Go Boom

FOURTH OF JULY is almost here! The City of North Las Vegas, in partnership with municipalities across Southern Nevada, launched a fireworks safety education and enforcement campaign to make people aware that there is zero tolerance for illegal fireworks in the valley.

Law enforcement agencies across the valley will be cracking down on all fireworks that aren’t “safe and sane.” Safe and sane fireworks include sparklers, snaps, pinwheels, smokeballs, fountains and snakes – in other words, novelty fireworks that don’t leave the ground. Illegal fireworks include firecrackers, rockets and cakes.

Offenders will be subject to $1,000 fines, as well as hundreds of additional dollars in disposal fees. Additionally, fireworks of any type are legal only from July 1st – 4th, not after or before. Be on the right side of the law!

If you see illegal fireworks the week of July 4, please do not call 911 or 311. It’s important that we keep those emergency lines open. In-

stead, visit to report illegal fireworks and visit: for additional information.

On the other hand, fireworks are also loud and can have an adverse effect on pets and those with anxiety conditions. Experts say fireworks pose a genuine threat to some PTSD sufferers and can cause them to act out violently.

Humans are not the only species affected by the sudden boom of fireworks. Animals can be especially sensitive.

Caesar Milan says some dogs who aren’t used to the sounds and smells associated with firearms find the Fourth of July and other holidays where fireworks are prominent, particularly stressful. Instinct tells them to run and hide. More pets run away on the Fourth of July than any other day.

Here are a few tips that can be helpful for both human and pet alike:

Be Calm

• It’s hard to assist if you are anxious yourself. Keep in mind that the flashes of light that come with firework displays can be scary too. Add your own noise

• Try drowning out the fireworks blasts as much as possible. Experiment with Sound Masking, the addition of sound that reduces noise distractions and protects speech privacy. Unlike white noise machines, it is tuned to mask human speech.

Play soothing sounds

• White noise provides a consistent, calming sound that reduces and covers distractions quietly allowing an audio comfort zone.

• Music has always been known to soothe the savage beast within.

These issues are a community problem that can only be addressed by all of us working together. Please support our efforts and stay safe.

Back to School Safety Tips

CHILDREN TRAVEL to school in many ways – by bus, car, on bicycle, scooter, or on foot. Teaching kids about traffic safety is a priority for the Nevada Department of Transportation. We like to say that safety is a two-way street: it is the job of responsible pedestrians and attentive motorists to safely navigate through our daily commutes.

Walking or biking to school

By car, bicycle and/or foot, families should conduct a test trip between home and school before the school year begins. Access and other roadway conditions can change over the summer, even on previously familiar routes. Familiarize yourself with distance, travel time, safe crossing areas and more. Use this test trip as an opportunity to remind children of traffic safety practices.

✔ There’s safety in numbers. Encourage your child to walk in groups with other children. You can also check with your school for more information to Initiate a “walking school bus.”

✔ Ensure that children on a bicycle, scooter or skates have a well-fitting helmet with bright colored clothing to increase visibility.

✔ Make sure that there is no loose clothing or gear such as loose pant legs, backpack straps or shoelaces, which could become caught in your bike chain. Also wear sneakers when biking. Sandals, flip-flops, shoes with heels, and cleats will not help you grip the pedals.

✔ Only cross at designated crosswalks. Obey all traffic signs, traffic lights, and crossing guard instructions. If you are on a bike or scooter, walk and do not ride through the crosswalk.

✔ The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration advises you to follow the tried-and-true rule: Look left-right-left before crossing any street. To make sure that they see you, make eye contact with all approaching drivers before crossing the street.

✔ Walk or ride predictably in a straight line without weaving in and out of traffic. Travel in the same direction as traffic and on the sidewalk whenever possible.

✔ Always remain alert and attentive to your surroundings, with your eyes focused on the road ahead. Do not listen to music that could distract from the roadway sounds and alerts around you.

Riding the school bus

✔ Stay five steps away from the curb.

✔ Always wait for the bus driver to tell you when to board.

✔ Face forward after finding a seat on the bus.

✔ Exit the bus when it stops, look left-right-left, and take five steps away from the bus toward the curb.

✔ Children should always enter and exit the bus at designated locations that provide safe access to the bus or to the school building.

Sharing the road with young pedestrians

✔ Always wear your seatbelt while operating or as a passenger in a vehicle.

✔ Do not text or talk on your phone while operating a vehicle. It is dangerous and against the law in Nevada.

✔ Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Check crosswalks to ensure pedestrians are not present, obey traffic signs, speed limits, and proceed slowly through school zones.

✔ Stop for a school patrol safety officer or crossing guard using hand signals or holding a sign.

✔ Do not block the crosswalk when stopped at a red light or waiting to make a turn. This forces pedestrians to have to move around you, putting them in the way of moving traffic.

✔ Per state law, no U-turns or passing are allowed in Nevada active school zones or school crossing zones.

Upcoming Annual Meeting and Election

THE ANNUAL MEETING and Election is approaching for the 2024 year and is scheduled for Thursday, September 26th, 2024.
