Your Neighborhood Watch

IT’S CRUCIAL for homeowners to stay informed about any incidents that affect our neighborhood’s safety. At the most recent Board Meeting held on February 22, over 30 homeowners were in attendance to speak about crime activity in their neighborhood. While our neighborhood

remains relatively safe, it’s essential for everyone to remain vigilant and report any unusual behavior to the authorities and the Securitas Roving Patrol promptly.

How to Care for Concrete Walls

The word concrete comes from the Latin word “concretus” (meaning compact or condensed). We have all seen concrete walls here in Aliante. Every association has them and some are beautiful and some have white scaly residue coming from them. You have heard the saying “an ounce of prevention equals a pound of cure”. When it comes to the walls that surround your community and separate your neighbor’s yards from one another, we all have an intimate love-hate relationship with our concrete walls at one time or another. When our homes were built the walls were the first thing the builders erected to separate the build site from surrounding properties. You might be thinking the walls we see are solid and resolute, but in fact they are very porous and will absorb water from any source and pass the water through the wall to the other side. Concrete is a composite material composed of coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement that hardens over time. When aggregate is mixed together with dry cement and water, the mixture forms a fluid mass that is easily molded into shape.

the walls and allows efflorescence to occur.

What is efflorescence?

In chemistry, efflorescence (which means “to flower out” in French) is the migration of a salt to the surface of a porous material, where it forms a coating. The essential process comprises the dissolving of an internally held salt in water, or occasionally in another solvent. The water, with the salt now held in solution, migrates to the surface, then evaporates, leaving a coating of the salt. Efflorescence can occur in natural and built environments. On porous construction materials it may present a cosmetic outer problem only (primary efflorescence causing staining), but can sometimes indicate internal structural weakness (migration/degradation of component materials). Setbacks allow a distance to set your irrigation to avoid spraying the wall, minimizing the wall from getting too wet while still letting irrigation do its job, watering our landscape.

The cement reacts chemically with the water and other ingredients to form a hard matrix that binds the materials together into a durable stone-like material that has many uses. Water is not only used to produce the concrete, it is also the biggest enemy of the wall as well. We all love a lush green lawn and mature shrubbery and trees in our landscape and many people use this landscape to “hide” the concrete walls. If we don’t adhere to the approved “setbacks”, (a set distance from the wall), the wall suffers a painful blow, water. The water we use to grow the landscape also weakens

It is also possible to protect porous building materials, such as brick, tiles, concrete and paving against efflorescence by treating the material with an impregnating, hydro-phobic sealer. This is a sealer that repels water and will penetrate deeply enough into the material to keep water and dissolved salts well away from the surface. However, in climates where freezing is a concern, a sealer may lead to damage from freeze/thaw cycles. While it will help to protect against efflorescence, it cannot permanently prevent the problem.

Efflorescence can often be removed from concrete using phosphoric acid. After application the acid dilution is neutralized with mild diluted detergent, and then well rinsed with water. However, if the source of the water penetration is not addressed efflorescence may reappear.

If we all do our part, we can prevent problems with our concrete walls and enjoy the safety and security they provide for many years to come.

Understanding the Leash Laws

AS WE CONTINUE to cherish the natural beauty and outdoor adventures that Aliante has to offer, it’s crucial that we also prioritize the safety and well-being of our beloved furry companions. One significant aspect of responsible pet ownership is understanding and adhering to Nevada’s leash laws.

What are Leash Laws?

Leash laws are regulations set by local municipalities or state governments that require dogs to be on a leash when they are in public areas. The primary goal of these laws is to ensure the safety of both pets and people by preventing dog-related incidents and conflicts.

Nevada Leash Laws: What You Need to Know

In Nevada, leash laws vary by county and city, so it’s essential to familiarize yourself with the specific regulations in your area. However, there are some general guidelines that apply across the state:

1. Controlled Restraint: In most public areas, dogs must be under control at all times. This typically means they should be on a leash held by a responsible owner. Even in areas where leashes are not explicitly required, owners are still responsible for controlling their dogs and preventing them from running at large.

2. Exceptions: There are some exceptions to leash laws, such as designated offleash dog parks. These areas provide a safe space for dogs to exercise and socialize without the constraint of a leash. However, even in these designated areas, owners must maintain control over their pets and prevent aggressive behavior.

3. Penalties for Non-Compliance: Violating leash laws can result in fines and other penalties. Additionally, owners may be held liable for any damage or injuries caused by their unleashed dogs. By following leash laws, you not only ensure the safety of your pet and others but also avoid potential legal consequences.

Benefits of Leash Laws

1. Safety: Leash laws help prevent dog attacks, bites, and other incidents that can result in injuries to people or pets.

2. Environmental Protection: Keeping dogs on leashes helps preserve wildlife habitats and prevents dogs from disturbing sensitive ecosystems.

3. Community Harmony: By respecting leash laws, dog owners contribute to a more peaceful and enjoyable environment for everyone, including those who may be fearful of or allergic to dogs.

Being a Responsible Pet Owner

As pet owners, it’s our responsibility to prioritize the safety and well-being of our furry friends and the community at large. By following Nevada’s leash laws and taking proactive measures to train and socialize our dogs, we can ensure that everyone can enjoy the outdoors safely and responsibly.

Remember, a leash is not just a legal requirement—it’s a simple yet effective way to show that you care about the safety and comfort of your pet and those around you.

Let’s work together to keep Aliante safe and enjoyable for all residents, both human and canine alike.

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.

Not from Nevada? You can state your claim in other states as well. Go to There is no fee to file a claim or to search for property.

SNWA Offers Largest Cash-for-Grass Incentive

SPRING INTO ACTION this season by trading your grass for cash with the Southern Nevada Water Authority’s (SNWA) biggest incentive ever. The SNWA has temporarily increased the Water Smart Landscape Rebate (WSLR) for homeowners from $3 to $5 per square foot of grass upgraded to water-efficient landscaping for the rest of 2024.

Qualifying homeowners will receive $5 for each square foot of grass they convert (up to the first 10,000 square feet) to drip-irrigated, desert-adapted plants and trees, and $3.50 for each additional square foot. Conversions must be completed by the end of 2024 to receive the increased incentive.

Businesses, municipalities, community associations, and multi-family properties remain eligible for the current $3 per square foot incentive, which will decrease to $2 per square foot for nonfunctional, decorative grass beginning in 2025.

Outdoor landscaping is the biggest user of Southern Nevada’s limited water supply. By converting to a Water Smart landscape, you’ll use 55 gallons of water less per square foot than thirstygrass landscapes.

While it can seem daunting to consider removing your home’s grass, embracing a lawnfree landscape not only conserves water but also reduces maintenance efforts, allowing for a more sustainable and vibrant outdoor space. Here are some common myths associated with water-smart landscapes:

“It takes too long for water-efficient plants to mature and achieve SNWA’s required 50% canopy.”

You can save money on labor and plant material costs by planting smaller sized plants. It doesn’t matter if you install a 1-gallon or a 5-gallon plant; the SNWA will give you the same maturity credit. And most plants—when watered properly—fill in or grow quickly.

“All desert plants and rocks are ugly.”

Water-smart landscaping is so much more than rocks and cacti. With over 500 plant options that are resilient enough to tolerate our harsh environment and soil conditions, coupled with thoughtful design and selection, achieving a beautiful landscape while conserving water is possible.

As we enter spring, it’s also time to change your watering clock. Seasonal watering restrictions in effect March 1 through April 30, and lim-

“Water Smart Landscaping will make my house hotter.”

Shade is the key to keeping you cool in the desert. Grass feels cool because so much water is evaporating from it. There are dozens of water-efficient trees and plants that can be used to shade south and west exposure from our relentless desert sun, while using less water; consult the Plant Search Tool on to find what works best for you. Also, as part of the WSL rebate, the Tree Enhancement Program offers $100 bonuses to new participants for each qualifying tree planted during landscape conversions. It’s a shady deal you will want to take advantage of, providing much-needed shade against the urban heat island effect.

its landscape watering to up to three assigned days per week (Sunday watering is prohibited all year). You can increase your savings without harming your landscape by slowly “ramping up” irrigation schedules, adding the second and third watering days only as temperatures warm up and weather patterns permit. If you have plants and trees on drip systems, they require significantly less water, typically needing to be watered every 1-2 days in spring.

Spring is a great time to upgrade your grass to a beautiful water-efficient landscape! To apply for the WSL program, and for program conditions and criteria visit

A Five-Word Watering Rule of Thumb for Green Thumbs

WHEN IT COMES to landscape irrigation, you can help the community conserve water and prevent water waste—while saving money on your monthly bill—by following a simple five-word rule:

Drip It, Don’t Drown It.

Most residential landscapes in Southern Nevada feature a variety of drip-irrigated plants and trees. It’s essential to recognize that plants and trees need much less water than grass to flourish. Knowing how much to “drip it” can help you avoid “drowning it.”

Low-flow emitter (up to 4 gph): 30-90 minutes or less

Drip irrigation systems deliver water slowly and more efficiently, and they should run longer but less frequently than sprinkler systems used to irrigate grass. Water your drip-irrigated plants and trees in winter every seven to 14 days. Water grass in short cycles for no more than 12 minutes per watering day. Check your trees and plants monthly and adjust your drip irrigation as needed.

Don’t forget, mandatory winter watering

You can determine how long to set your drip irrigation by identifying whether your drip emitters have a high- or a low-flow rate, based on gallons per hour (gph ). A consistent flow or stream-like release of water means your emitters are high-flow, while a slow drip or a bead-like release of water drops indicates a low-flow emitter.

Once you’ve determined the flow rate of your emitters, follow these suggested watering times and adjust as needed:

High-flow emitter (up to 20 gph): 20-40 minutes or less

restrictions, which limit landscape watering to one assigned day per week, are in effect through Feb. 29. Sunday watering is always prohibited.

City Council Corner

HELLO FELLOW RESIDENTS of beautiful Aliante.

In this edition of the Aerial, I want to tell you how truly honored I am to not only represent Ward 4 residents (east side of Aliante Pkwy, including the Tule Springs National Monument and the New Villages of Tule Springs which is being developed), but also to serve all of you as one of the five councilmembers of this great city whose population is currently approaching 300,000. Your City of North Las Vegas has a council-manager form of government where your councilmembers are the leaders and policy makers, elected to represent various segments of the community and to concentrate on policy issues that are responsive to citizens’ needs. North Las Vegas’ City Council is thus composed of four councilmembers and the mayor. Each councilmember represents a ward of about 75,000 people each.

I have made it my goal, like that of my colleagues, to provide the best possible services for our residents. As the city continues to experience exponential growth, public safety remains a priority. In addition, parks and general infrastructure are on top of the list, since they all affect the quality of life of all North Las Vegas families. I am proud to say that our city employees are

Your Neighborhood Watch

In light of this we want to remind everyone of some essential safety tips:

• Always lock your doors, windows, and car doors, even when you’re at home.

• Be mindful of your surroundings when walking or jogging, especially during early mornings or late evenings.

• Install motion-sensor lights and security cameras to deter potential intruders. (Don’t forget to submit your ARC application!)

• Form or join a neighborhood watch group to stay connected with your neighbors and share information about any security concerns.

There are multiple Neighborhood Watch groups in effect across the City of North Las Vegas, helping to keep our community safe. These groups of neighbors work together with each other and with the North Las Vegas Police Department to increase collaboration within the community and empower citizens

second to none when it comes to constituent services. During the two terms that I’ve served (with my third and final term coming this year), I have always made sure that my constituents, who I have come to know and consider as friends over the years, receive timely responses for their requests and concerns. Indeed, being a public servant has given me the ability to positively impact a person’s life and that is extremely rewarding.

However, it would be impossible to mention all that is being done around our city without clearly acknowledging the construction-related traffic issues. The orange cones and asphalt patches we all deal with daily, unfortunately, are all part of thoughtful growth. I would suggest that you contact your council person with any question, suggestion, or concern. If you would like to receive my monthly newsletter or contact me, please send your name and email to with subject “Newsletter.” You can also call my office at 702-633-1194

In closing, let me just share with you two of my greatest passions: serving our veterans, and protecting to the fullest extent possible, the well-being of all our animals.

Thank you for being part of the North Las Vegas family. Respectfully.

Richard Cherchio

North Las Vegas Ward 4 Councilman

to play a proactive role in combating crime.

The Neighborhood Watch programs are run by citizens with assistance from NLVPD. Any resident or community can join - it’s as simple as starting a conversation with your neighbors!

How Do I Start a Neighborhood Watch Program?

• Talk with your neighbors and discuss their needs and concerns. Find out which days or hours work best for an initial meeting.

• Establish a list of volunteers and interested participants. Solicit for a Coordinator and Block Captain. The coordinator is the direct liaison to NLVPD. Block

Captains are the liaisons between the participants and the coordinator. All interested volunteers must complete an application through the Police Department.

• Four weeks prior to your desired meeting date, contact NLVPD’s Community Services Division at (702) 6331808 to schedule a Crime Prevention Specialist to attend and give a presentation on the program, home security and other crime prevention practices.

• Your group is now official! After the initial meeting, work with NLVPD to order and put-up Neighborhood Watch signs.
