From the President

EFFECTIVE MARCH 2, 2023, Janelle Fuhrmann, who has been the association’s Assistant Community Manager for the past 10 years, will become our new community manager replacing our current community manager Joshua Roser. I was on the Board when both Josh and Janelle joined the Aliante Master Association management team and I know both very well. Josh is moving on to a simpler, quieter life in South Carolina. (I hear being a Community Manager for over 18 years will do that to you!) Josh has been our community manager for approximately 8 years! I want to take this opportunity to thank Josh for his many years of dedicated service to our community and wish him the best of luck and a long lifetime of good health. The five board members who were able to attend a meeting with FirstService management’s Vice President Lauren Starner, enthusiastically and unanimously recommended and approved Janelle’s promotion. Janelle knows every aspect and minutiae of our association and has the training to make a smooth transition into her new role. She has earned all the designations to become a community manager: NVCAM – Nevada Community Association Manager 2009, CMCA – Certified Manager of Community Associations (CAI) 2009, AMS – Association Management Specialist (CAI) 2016. Congratulations Janelle! The Board is looking forward to working with you!

Important Board Decisions at the January 26, 2022, Board Meeting

We accepted a proposal from Twilight Designs in the amount of $8,264.73 to replace the electrical pedestal destroyed in the horrific accident that occurred on January 2, 2023, on Aliante Parkway near Arby’s. The electrical pedestal controls all the association lighting at the two south corners on Aliante Parkway and the 215 Beltway. It also provides power to twenty-two irrigation valves on those corners and the length of the Aliante Parkway south to Deer Springs. Gothic must turn the twenty-two valves off and on by hand until the power is restored.

• The board reviewed the common element assets suggested by our reserve study that may need replacing or maintaining this year and approved management obtaining proposals as needed for these projects.

• The board approved the purchase of six additional holiday wreaths and one replacement bow in the amount of $3,355.22. We were able to save 25% on these items by purchasing them before February 28.

• We approved the annual membership fee in the amount of $320 for all seven board members to become members of CAI, Community Association Institutes. CAI plans and provides quality education classes for homeowner board members and community volunteers through the Dedicated Community Association Leader (DCAL and Advanced DCAL) programs. Board Vice President Wayne Headrick, Treasurer Stan Wright and I have completed the course of study to earn the DCAL designation we hold.

Attitudes Towards Speeding

continued from cover

fatal crashes. Even with fewer cars on the road during the pandemic, 2020 saw a dramatic increase (17%) in speeding-related deaths compared to 2019. The data also showed additional concerning statistics in 2020:

 Local roads saw the most speeding, with 87% of all speedingrelated traffic fatalities occurring on non-interstate roads

 Speeding contributed to 37% of the fatal crashes in work zones

 Speeding was a factor in more fatal crashes on wet roads than dry roads

Drinking and speeding is the deadliest combination. Of the drivers involved in fatal crashes, 37% were speeding and had a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher.

“Much like impaired driving, speeding can steal the lives of everyone using our roads: drivers, passengers, pedestrians and cyclists,” said Dr. Steven Cliff, NHTSA’s Administrator. “We cannot accept the status quo. Speed-related deaths aren’t inevitable. They’re preventable, and everyone has a role in addressing this crisis on our nation’s roadways.”

Ending speeding-related deaths is a top priority for the Biden-Harris Administration. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, also known as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, makes significant investments in highway safety. In January, Secretary Pete Buttigieg unveiled the National Roadway Safety Strategy, which includes a special focus on safer speeds. The long-term plan aims to save lives by leveraging road design and other infrastructure interventions, and focusing on safer speed limit setting, education, and equitable traffic enforcement.

There have been many reports of speeders in the Horse and Aliante Pkwy area, which is a 35-mph zone. To deter future incidents of speeding, the NLVPD Traffic Division assigned officers to conduct enforcement in that area. High speeds between 50-55 mph were found, resulting in a high number of citations.

Speeding is not only breaking the law, but it is also dangerous to other drivers and poses the potential for serious injury and even death to pedestrians. Please be mindful of the posted speed limits, always, when driving in and around neighborhoods as well as on the roadways to prevent such consequences from occurring.

The Safety of Our Kids

THE LAST COUPLE of meetings of the Safety Committee we have discussed the traffic issues here in Aliante. We discussed, in depth, the fatality accidents that have happened the last couple of years, and one as recently as a couple of months ago right on Aliante Parkway that the local community was really upset about since that nice couple was known by so many. We discussed the possibility of extra patrols to monitor speeding with our Councilman Scott Black. All ideas on how to deal with is on the table at the moment.

There is one issue that needs to be dealt with immediately. The only way we know how to approach this is to try and appeal to logic. Traffic laws don’t seem to be getting the point across. The problem is cars ignoring the cross walks in school zones. Drivers absolutely MUST follow the directions of the Crossing Guards. This is not an option. It is State Law.

We have a dedicated volunteer named Ms Debbie. She is a Crossing Guard and is part of the Safety Committee. Ms Deb bie gives us first hand accounts on how she and the kids crossing the street almost get hit by cars running the stop signs and red lights every single day of the school week. Drivers yell at her, yell at the kids, and just ignore the fact that someone holding a stop sign is escorting children across a busy roadway. This behavior must stop. Please, we are begging at this point. Pay attention to your surroundings as you are driving thru Aliante during the mornings and the afternoons. Contrary to popular belief the speed limit is not 65mph on our local streets. It is in fact 35mph thru the entire Aliante Master Planned Community. Whether you think the

speed limits should be higher or lower is not material to the conversation. The issue is that we don’t want to get a report one afternoon that a kid got run over by a distracted driver.

Please consider being a little more courteous as you drive thru our community and think about your kids, or other parents kids and their safety as such. One incident where a person is hit by a car causes a chain reaction of events that could involve Doctors, Lawyers, Judges, Prison, and/or Funeral Directors. It is really easy to avoid all of these. Just slow down and pay attention. Thanks for your time.

Maintenance Report:

January 2023 Maintenance

We are continuing the Fall clean up, collecting and removing leaves and debris from trees and plants that have gone dormant.

 Selective pruning on evergreen plants, excluding spring flowering shrubs.

 During the month of February we will continue to clean up leaves throughout the community, including all fall debris in the walking trials,

 Cleaned up the gutters on all common area streets throughout the Aliante community and in the walking trails.

• The maintenance on Decatur, Rome, and Deer Springs North has been completed between Jan. 10th and Jan.17th.

• Maintenance on D.S., Decatur,& Rome, include the following; plant pruning as well as tree trimming. All of the trees on the South side of Deer Spring, trees in the medians between Decatur and Aviary, and trees on the North side of Deer Springs that had low hanging branches were raised.

• Tomorrow, Friday Jan. 27th we will start our scheduled maintenance on Deer Springs South, Clayton, and Brian Cram.

• In 2021 we assigned a crew to specifically work on the maintenance of the 6000+ trees that are in the Aliante community. The vast majority are mature trees of 15+ years of age. Today we see the positive results of these actions, we have less broken trees due to high winds, less damage to mature tree branches, and best of all, we have healthier trees that will provide curb appeal to your community.

• Due to the recent rain, the timers in Aliante have been turned off until further notice, we will keep an eye on the weather to determine when the irrigation timers will be turned back on. In Addition to that, I will have the irrigation techs check the soil for moisture around different areas in Aliante, If we determine that a certain area needs water we will manually water the area instead of turning on the whole irrigation system.

• In the 2nd week of February 2023 (weather permitting) we will start the Olive tree spraying to reduce the Olive fruit growth.

• As you may or may not know, out of the 6000+ trees in Aliante, 875 of them are Olive trees.

1. 660 Olive trees in the Aliante common areas.

2. 122 Olive trees in walking trails 58, 59N, 59, and 61.

3. 93 Olive trees in walking trails 60, 60 south, and 62.

• The chemical that is used to reduce the growth of olive fruit is called Maintain CF 125, it’s safe for people, pets and property. The expectation for olive fruit reduction is 85%-90%. The spraying process will be done once we reach temperatures of at least mid 60 degrees F. Also, spraying will be conducted after 9pm due to safety.

Light Trespass and HOA Rules

THERE IS CURRENTLY a company that is advertising custom lighting on all forms of social media. It is a company that sells what it calls “Permanent Holiday Lighting”.

This type of lighting is not allowed in any of the 17 neighborhoods that make up the Aliante Master Association. They will NOT be approved thru any part of an Architectural Improvement or Request. We are putting this information out as a public service announcement to help prevent residents from spending thousands of dollars to have them installed only to find out, after the fact, that they are not allowed and must be removed because they did not check with the rules and regulations first.

The following paragraphs should be self explanatory but if you have any questions please contact your Management Company direct. There is a list of the ones here in Aliante listed at the bottom of this article.

The Ballad of Montgomery Scott

LAST FRIDAY we got a call that a puppy needed to be rescued from puppy jail downtown. I had a small window of time to go get him. The idea was to bail him out, take him to the vet, and he would stay there in doggie day care until we could get a foster lined up. It did not quite work out that way.

The dogs name is Scott. Sounds like a name I would give a dog so this rescue is starting out well. A lot of times we get dogs with such crazy names that they immediately get new ones. Puppy’s are people too. Give them a real name that meets their personality.

I got down to the Animal Foundation and went in, gave the people the info on prisoner number 1074554. They told me to wait a minute and they would go get him. I looked around the room. There were other people there waiting to pick up prisoners too. Some of them looked really upset. One lady looked mad and I thought about staying around to watch the fireworks. But I don’t like fireworks so I just stayed quiet and waited for my parolee to be brought out.

Puppy’s that I pick up from the Animal Foundation come in two groups. There is the scared to death group where you have to talk to the dogs, get them calmed down, and explain to them that everything is going to be ok. Then there is the grateful group that is so happy they are getting busted out of jail that they know exactly why you are there and they will walk you to your own vehicle and jump in and say “give me the keys”. Mr. Scott was that puppy. He had a smile a mile wide when they brought him out. He greeted me and said it was time to “blow this popcorn stand” and he led me outside and walked right up to my truck.

After I got him all settled in the truck, explained to him that I was going to drive, I decided real quick that I was not going to take him direct to the vet. I was going to take him home and introduce him to the other puppies. So that is what we did. He greeted everybody. Everybody greeted him. They all went outside and Snoop E. Dogg explained where they needed to stand to get the best view of the walking trails and then where to stand in the kitchen so the nice lady that runs the puppy bed and breakfast will give them a puppy treat.

Mr. Scott smelled like he had been in prison. We had a groomers appointment set up for the next morning but that was not going to work. So I invited him into the downstairs bathroom and showed him the shower. He walked right in and I was able to wash a couple layers of dirt and smells off of him and I checked for prison tattoos. He did not have any. He was so happy. After that he ran around, played with the other dogs and dried off. He did have an official vet appointment later on that afternoon so I took him in for that. He enjoyed the ride in the truck, and enjoyed meeting everybody at the vet including the girls at the desk and the doctor.

Back home after the vet appointment we discovered that puppy did not know how to navigate stairs. It is always fun to watch them learn. This time, Harley was the teacher. He would go up the stairs, look down over the rails and bark. Mr. Scott would go up a few stairs then turn around and go back down. This went on for about an hour until he finally made it up to the landing. He only had about 3 more steps to go but it took him a while to figure out those last 3. When he finally did it he was so happy. He ran into my office, gave me a big hug, and then went off to explore.

It has been a good couple of days with Mr. Scott. He is a hugger, a snuggler, a happy, playful, grateful, puppy. Rescue dogs always are. That is why they are the best. I would keep this puppy for my own but we cant keep all of them. That would be puppy hoarding, and we can not do that. We have to share the joy of rescue puppy’s with other people that need rescue puppy’s.

Another successful rescue story in the books. This really was a good one. It is not over yet. We still have to find somebody to adopt him but that is in the works. It is quite possible that we take him to meet his future parents this week. We will see.

State Your Claim

Could Nevada be holding money for you?

What money you may ask, Items specified in Nevada Revised Statutes 120A says Nevada could hold financial assets owed to an individual or a bus iness, including securities, bank accounts, uncashed payroll checks, utility deposits, insurance proceeds, gift certificates, and other items.

The primary mission of the Nevada Unclaimed Property Division is to reunite original owners with their property.

The Treasurer’s Office is charged with safeguarding the value of these assets in perpetuity. The original owner or heir never loses the ability to claim the property value.

Note: Unclaimed Property Does Not Include Real Estate Or Vehicles.

Here is how you can check to see if you have unclaimed money.

Go to the Nevada State Treasurer website and click the yellow smiley face option that says “search for unclaimed money”. It really is that easy.

Resolve to Save Water in 2023

Have you made a resolution this year to eat healthier, get more exercise, or set other self-improvement goals for 2023? Why not consider resolving to save water—and money on your monthly water bills—by enrolling in the Southern Nevada Water Authority’s (SNWA) Water Smart Landscapes Rebate Program (WSL)?

Through WSL, you can earn a cash incentive of up to $3 per square foot of grass you upgrade with water-efficient, drip-irrigated landscaping. Not only will WSL help you lower your monthly water bills, but you’ll be doing your part to help the community save water—especially as federally declared water shortage reduces the amount of water we can withdraw from Lake Mead, the source of 90 percent of our supply, by about 8 billion gallons this year.

Visit for a trove of information to help you learn more about WSL, including:

Plant Search Finder: Search for water-efficient, desert-adapted plants and trees that can enhance your landscaping.

Water Smart Contractors: These contractors are trained in water-saving irrigation and can help develop designs and plans that fit your landscaping needs.

Sample Landscape Designs: Whether you hire a Water Smart Contractor or choose to dig in and do the work yourself, these design templates can help you choose the right plants and trees for your new landscape.

Water Smart Landscape classes: Learn about landscape design, plants and the key components to have a successful landscape. Basics of Water Smart Landscape classes are held online only; in-person Drip Irrigation classes are held Saturdays at the Springs Preserve. Visit for class schedules.

Water Smart Landscapes also can be vibrant, lush, and full of color, and provide more curb appeal and visual interest than a grass lawn. Check out the Botanical Garden at the Springs Preserve for inspiration. Saving water is as important in the new year as it ever has been. By resolving to convert your thirsty grass to a vibrant and colorful water-efficient landscape through the WSL program, you can help the community conserve our most precious resource, and you can save time, money and water.
