The SRCA Administrative Office has been extremely busy processing architectural applications which means homeowners are improving that “curb appeal” that makes this such a desirable community.

By Michael Breslin SRCA Board President

Your Board Members got together for a meeting, on Saturday 7/24, to get to know each other a little more in depth and to discuss operational methodologies to assure ourselves that we all understand our fiduciary obligations to Scottsdale Ranch Community Association, and each of its individual members. During the course of our discussions we all learned more about the individual members and staff, and their perspectives and some things that drive each of us that we can utilize to make our deliberations result in the best possible result for all members.

The curb appeal of our community depends on each resident maintaining his or her property as completely as possible. For those who keep their homes and yards well maintained, the association thanks you for your efforts and good examples. We encourage all residents to pay particular attention to the following maintenance items.

A substantial part of the discussion centered on how to balance the needs of many, that result from our trying to adhere to the letter of the CC&Rs and Rules and Regulations and Architectural Guides without stif ling the creativity and ideas of each of us as individuals. We were not able to concoct a simple formula to arrive with mathematical precision for each and every decision that comes before us. We did, however, identify and discuss some criteria that will be helpful in future deliberations.

Exterior paint. Paint is a quick and easy way to keep your property looking fresh, new and clean. It will also protect against corrosion, weathering and insects.

We all agreed that the following principles must be the cornerstone regarding all Board decisions that affect SRCA or portions of SRCA: • Some matters will not necessarily result in clear cut decisions. • We must always refer to our documented vision, values and objectives. • Whenever possible, attempt to get the voice of the community on possible controversial issues.

Landscaping. Landscaping is extremely important to our community’s curb appeal. Please remove dead plants and branches. Keep shrubs properly pruned and f lowers well-tended. Keep yards free of leaves and keep those trees from encroaching onto neighboring property. Roofs. Please insure your roofs are properly maintained and cleaned. Check for cracked tiles. Driveways and sidewalks. Please repair cracks, pitted or f laking surfaces and other concrete problems. Remove weeds from sidewalk joints and debris from driveways and sidewalks. Do not use driveways for storage or auto repairs. Gutters and downspouts. Please keep them cleaned out to prevent overf lowing and f looding. Windows, awnings and decks. Please replace worn or damaged fixtures, check fittings for stability and paint all items at least bi-annually. Thanks you for keeping our community looking sharp.

August/September 2017

The following considerations must always guide our deliberations. • Preserve zoning, especially zoning that protects residential areas. • Reduced traffic is always a major consideration. • Maintain the status quo, since that is what existed when residents originally chose to live here. • Use the “what if ” rule: What if this WAS BEING PUT IN MY BACK YARD”. Kathe Barnes next provided a list of needed capital improvement projects for Board review and requested that we use our best efforts at prioritization. It was determined that maintenance items such as granite replenishment, Olive and Eucalyptus tree removal and erosion control would be at the top of the list. Enhancement projects that involve entryway monument modification and Lake Cove renovation would remain a priority. Additionally, there was discussion regarding a possible allocation of funds to the City of Scottsdale for an upgrade to playground equipment which will be discussed at an upcoming Board meeting. It was determined the lower priority items, at this time, would be street pathway lighting and updating our street signs. We were all extremely pleased at the conclusion of our discussions at the cohesive dynamics experienced by all members. Everyone felt free to offer their opinions, even if the opinion did not seem to be the most popular. Everyone’s opinions were pondered and respected and everyone believed their voice was heard in arriving at final agreements. The group dynamics demonstrated an ability to tap into everyone’s strengths while not totally exploring alternate views. We all agreed that it was avery gratifying Saturday spent on behalf of SRCA.

Upcoming Weeks of Brush Collection: August 28th & October 2nd

If you have not trimmed your Palm trees yet, you are in the minority. It seems we had an early bloom this year with our palm trees and a majority of trees had bloomed out by mid- June. You most likely received a postcard if your trees were not trimmed by the end of June. With all that said I would like to talk about a compliance issue that will be prevalent on upcoming inspections.

BEFORE

PALM TREE TRIMMING Long term Valley residents know mid-June thru August is palm tree trimming season. The reason palms are trimmed this time of year is because they grow seed pods and fruit annually that can be messy and unsightly. Having your tree trimmed after the seed pods or fruit emerge ensures a full year to enjoy a properly trimmed, clean tree. When Caring for Palms DO; • Remove only dead fronds to a 180 degree angle, 9:00/3:00 o’clock positions as you look at the tree. • Use a sharp linoleum knife to remove dead fronds. • Remove fruit clusters to avoid pavement staining. • Remove seedling branches. DO NOT; • Remove fronds higher than a 45 degree angle. • Use dull tools. • Trim fronds before entering cool/wet season to avoid creating an environment for fungal development. • Remove more than 25% of foliage at any time. • Prune before the danger of frost. Now is the time to schedule with a landscaper or certified arborist for palm trimming, before you get that letter in the mail requesting you trim your trees. Until next time, remember to keep those trash cans stored out of sight, be kind to your neighbors and please know that I am always available to discuss any issues or concerns you may have at sperez@scottsdaleranch.org or (480) 860-2022. skim through them. You may be surprised at what you learn. They can be found on our website along with a plethora of information regarding Scottsdale Ranch. Be sure to visit www.scottsdaleranch.org.

Announcement The Board of Directors, at the meeting held June 27, 2017, voted unanimously to modify the language in the Architectural Guidelines regarding the construction timeframe policy. These changes were put in place to allow the Architectural Committee to extend commencement dates and to impose reasonable completion dates for a project. This policy also establishes standard completion dates for minor and major projects. Below is the revised policy that will become effective September 1, 2017. Commencement of Construction and Timeframe for Completion of Construction Upon written receipt of approval, an applicant shall commence construction, reconstruction, alterations or other work pursuant to the approved drawings within ninety (90) days or such other time period that is specified by the Committee, taking into account other approvals that must be obtained for a project, subject to obtaining all necessary permits required by governmental agencies. If the project is not started within ninety (90) days or such other time period that is specified by the Committee, any approval given shall be deemed 6

August/September 2017

Items should be placed outside by 5 a.m. on Monday morning and the city will pick up sometime during the week. Residents, please be considerate of your neighbors - do not put your items out before Monday and neighbors, please be patient as the City has all week to pick-up in our area. Please note that this service is provided by the City of Scottsdale, and all residents are urged to check the city’s website at www.scottsdale.gov for updates and changes. Thank you! Moving Box Recycling: Every Wednesday Residential Solid Waste Services performs a moving box service (on a one time basis) for new homeowners. You must call (480312-5600) to set-up an appointment for pickup. Appliance Collection for Residential Customers: Schedule an appliance pickup online or over the phone at 480-312-5600. Once per month we will haul away major such as washers & dryers, stoves/ovens, water heaters, dishwashers, refrigerators and freezers. Appliances containing Freon, such as refrigerators and freezers, will not be collected unless the compressor has been removed and the Freon recovered by a certified technician in accordance with Federal Law.

revoked unless, upon the written request of the Owner made to the ARC prior to the expiration of such ninety (90) day period and upon a finding by the ARC that there has been no change in circumstances, the time for such commencement is extended in writing by the ARC. Following commencement of construction, the portions of the project that are Visible From Neighboring Property must be completed within the time frame imposed by the ARC, except and for so long as such completion is rendered impossible or would result in great hardship to the Owner due to strikes, fires, national emergencies or natural calamities. The general time frame for completion of minor projects shall be three (3) months and the general time frame for completion of major projects shall be six (6) months. However, an Owner may request a longer time frame for completion at the time of submitting his or her application by submitting a proposed construction schedule to the ARC for consideration. If an Owner fails to comply with the above time limits or alternative time limits approved by the ARC, the ARC shall notify the Association of such failure, and the Association, at its discretion, may pursue enforcement by any means available under the Association’s governing documents and/or by law.


www.scottsdaleranch.org so the water can soak in and will not leave your property. Use the sewer clean out on your own property. Empty at a slow rate, or it may cause the sanitary sewer to back up. You may need to rent a pump to ensure that the f low rate is less than 12 gallons per minute. Call a septic tank hauler to pump the water and dispose of it properly.

It’s that time of year again…when out backyard pools provide refuge from the heat but seem to require constant maintenance and upkeep. For most pool systems, part of that upkeep requires backwashing or draining. It is important to remember that virtually all outdoor drains in Scottsdale are storm water drains and eventually lead to the Indian Bend Wash and the Salt River. It is a violation of Scottsdale City Code – and just bad for the environment – to release pool water into the street or wash.

Things to Avoid: • Do not drain the pool to the street, alleyway, or other city rightof-way. • Do not drain the pool into a sanitary sewer manhole in the street. • Do not drain the pool into a storm sewer inlet or drainage channel. • Do not drain onto adjacent property, drainage easements, and watercourses. For more information please see www.scottsdaleaz.gov/water or call (480) 312-5650.

The City asks you to discharge pool water into your sewer cleanout or, better yet, into your landscaping. REMEMBER: ONLY RAIN IN THE STORM DRAIN! Helpful Hints Use the water on your own property to irrigate the landscaping. To lessen negative impacts to plants test for the following: pH 6.5 to 8.5 and chlorine below 0.1 mg/l. Drain the pool over a few day period

In September 2015, Chef Jean-Christophe Gros and his wife, Segolene Gros, packed up their lives in France and moved to the United States. After 33 years of restaurant work in France, the couple decided to bring their culinary skills to Scottsdale Ranch. Their journey began during a trip to the Grand Canyon. A short stopover in Scottsdale set in motion the Gros’ relocation. After just one day in our inviting desert city, the Gros family fell in love and decided this was the place for them to live and work. Married for 17 years, Voila is the Gros’ second restaurant; the first was sold back in France. It did not take more than one showing for JeanChristophe and Segolene to decide to acquire Voila. The intimate setting with touches of old world charm was just what they were looking for; a perfect space for Jean-Christophe to bring to life classic French cuisine, with a modern edge. From homemade foi gras and terrines to confit duck and au gratin potatoes, Voila keeps it traditional and delicious. While Segolene admits it can be frustrating to find ingredients that meet Jean-Christophe standards, their devoted following of local residents will easily tell you it’s worth it. This is no commercial chain restaurant. Specials change daily and seasonal dishes come and go. The pastries are made in house and you can always count on an interesting wine selection. Not only did the Gros’ find their restaurant in Scottsdale Ranch, they also found their home. As Venetian residents, they love the Scottsdale Ranch community. The Gros’ daughter attends a local school and they are happy to provide her with such a great community to grow up in.

Summer vacation means different things to different people. It can mean finally having the time to sit down to read a book or getting together for a family reunion back home. The same is true for teachers in the Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD), but they also spend their summers becoming better teaching professionals for their students. More than 500 SUSD teachers spent a week this summer taking part in the district’s annual Summer Institute. “We are happy to provide this opportunity for our teachers to learn and grow,” says SUSD Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services Dr. Steve Nance. “And we’re especially pleased that this year’s Institute focused in large part on technology. When teachers return to their classrooms this month, new laptop computers will be waiting for them, thanks to voters’ passage last year of the capital override measure.” The four-day seminar takes place soon after school is out to give teachers time to explore the presented teaching and learning concepts before they’re put into practice in classrooms. With the foundation of teaching rooted in learning, SUSD Instructional Technology Coach Vicki Anderson says teachers who attend the Institute are the perfect students. “Teachers have an innate hunger for knowledge. We must continue to learn, grow and adapt in order to effectively develop our students as lifelong learners.”

Some may not be aware, but located right within Scottsdale Ranch’s own boundaries, located over at the Scottsdale Ranch Park on the corner of Via Linda and Lakeview Drive is our very own Desert Garden Park. This beautiful park was designed to enhance the understanding of the Sonoran Desert, of botanical processes, and of the geology and soil materials indigenous to the nearby McDowell Mountains. The Garden Park features three zones: a hummingbird nest for the low desert area, a saguaro and bat sanctuary for the high desert area, and a butterf ly garden for the riparian community area. The park is free and open to the public. The Desert Garden Park first opened in 2003. Scottsdale Ranch played a significant role in the development of this amenity. Back in 1979, the developer of Scottsdale Ranch donated 64 acres of land to the City of Scottsdale for a General Public Use area in the heart of its master-planned community. The City of Scottsdale actively pursued various parties to build a public use facility on a five acre parcel on the corner of Via Linda and Lakeview Drive. The SRCA Board of Directors, staff and a special volunteer Park Committee, comprised of SRCA residents, spearheaded fundraising efforts and proactively participated in the development of this site. The garden has since been a treasured amenity for Scottsdale residents. If you haven’t already, be sure to take a few moments to go and experience this great area.

Most burglaries are “crimes of opportunity” where the burglar is looking for open doors, windows, and garage doors, another method of entry for burglaries in the area appear to be forced entry, such as throwing a river rock through the rear arcadia door or rear door. The suspects are targeting homes where residents are at work or out to dinner. To reduce the chances of this type of burglary, lock all doors and windows; remove any river rocks or items from the backyard that could be used to break the glass. In addition, locking all side gates and rear gates delays the entry by the burglar and forces them to jump a fence or wall creating the possibility of detection by a neighbor or passer-by. By locking the gates, it may also force a burglar to remove items by the same means they entered limiting the items they can carry. If you have a security system, arm it when you are not in the home. In some situations, the homeowner may have a working security system but fail to arm it when leaving. The room targeted the most during a burglary appears to be the Master Bedroom, This is most likely the case due to the items we normally keep in this room. The Master Bedroom dressers, night stands, bathroom counter tops and closet is where most people keep jewelry and other small items that are easily taken, concealed and transported. Place all valuables in a locked safe that is bolted to the foundation of the home to prevent removal or safety deposit box. If the home is not equipped with a safe, spread the valuables throughout the home and remove from open view. This is called “spreading the risk” in crime prevention. Complete an inventory of all valuables with the make, model and any identifying characteristics to help with the reporting of those items in the event of a loss. Use a camera to take a picture of the items which helps with memory retrieval, returning the items if found and in documenting these for the report. Other helpful crime prevention strategies include trimming all tree branches up to 7 feet, trimming bushes into a ‘V” shape at the base to limit hiding areas and trimmed below window height and away from the wall. The use of timers on radios, televisions and lamps may also give the appearance that someone is home. If you have window coverings on your windows, use them during the evening as this may prevent a burglar from observing if anyone is home. Extended vacations can change the look of your home-and thieves can often see those changes. If you’re going to be away, take measures to make your home appear to still be occupied. Have a trusted neighbor pick up the mail and newspaper. If away for an extended period, have a plan in place to have the grass mowed and bushes trimmed, as so it is not obvious you are away. If you are away from home on garbage pickup day, ask a trusted neighbor to put your garbage cans out to the street and take them back in. If you notice suspicious vehicles or people, call the Scottsdale Police Department’s non-emergency number at (480) 312-5000. This is a great number to place in your phone. If you have an emergency, please call 9-1-1. 22

As temperatures begin to cool in valley, residents will definitely want to take their bikes out of the garage and pedal around our beautiful city. With this in mind, here are some helpful tips to reduce bike thefts in your area: • Video Cameras – Reduce bike thefts in your apartment, condo or housing community; if you are able to place video cameras around your bike cages or near entrance and exit points, this may help the police identify bike thieves and deter crime. • Lights - Criminals do not like well-lit areas. Light up any areas near bike storage or bike lockers. • Locks - Use locks that work. Cable locks are easy to cut and do not deter criminals. Most of the bike thefts in Scottsdale are either unsecured or secured by inexpensive cable locks (see photo examples below). U-locks provide increased security against cutting. Secure bike in visible area and lock to a permanent fixture. • Register your bike - 80% of bikes recovered by the Scottsdale Police Department cannot be returned to owners as the bikes are never registered or serial numbers are not kept by the owners. If the Scottsdale Police Department catches someone on your bike and you cannot provide a serial number, we cannot take the bike from them (we have no proof ). You can register your bike here: https://www.myassettag.com/bike/ • Document and photograph your bike: Keep a photograph and document your bike serial number, make, model, size and color. This allows for quick entry into police database, if it is stolen. • If you SEE SOMETHING suspicious SAY SOMETHING Don’t let suspicious activity go unreported. No one knows your apartment/condo community or home better than you! You can report bike thefts online at ScottsdalePD.com if you do not want to call the police department. You can file a report, leave a tip, or leave a comment. The police can’t help if they don’t know a crime trend is occurring. Cable locks can be cut. These U-locks provide added security.

Thieves like easy targets and may be discouraged from bikes, cars, storage sheds etc.…that cannot be easily accessed, have good lighting, good visibility around area or cameras. Scottsdale Police Non-emergency line is (480)312-5000 or you can use www.ScottsdalePD.com to report crimes or tips online.
