Vistancia Again Ranks in Top 20 Selling Master-Planned Communities in U.S. By Mark Hammons

Vice President and General Manager

For the third year in a row, Vistancia has earned a Top 20 position among all U.S. master-planned communities on RCLCO’s national mid-year report. Vistancia ranked 17th in the nation and is the second best-selling community in Arizona with 274 sales, up 31 percent year-over-year. In total, The Village at Vistancia accounts for 62 percent, Trilogy at Vistancia for 22 percent and Blackstone at Vistancia for 16 percent of the recorded mid-year new home sales. Vistancia’s sales success is attributed to a robust selection of new home inventory, including more than 75 floorplan options; a diverse range of home sizes, and a wide range of pricing options from the low $200s to $500s. Additionally, Vistancia’s new home buyers are interested in Vistancia’s lifestyle-rich offering, providing residents opportunities to connect with the outdoors and their neighbors. Vistancia’s selection of recreation centers, community events, walking paths and trails, golf courses and excelling schools have been a big factor in driving new home buyers to the community.

the team

Vistancia’s future growth plans will focus on adding new builder neighborhoods in The Village at Vistancia. 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 lots measuring 70 feet by 125 feet, and William Ryan Homes purchased 87 lots sized 53 feet by 115 feet. 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. Development activity is underway, and we estimate grand openings in 2018. For the latest new home builder and development updates, visit the Vistancia Information Center at the guard-gated entrance of Blackstone at Vistancia, open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. every day. For more information, visit vistancia.com or call 623-933-6233.

manager’s message Success in community management begins with understanding the needs of our residents. The CCMC management team and Board of Directors recognized this when preparing our strategic plan, which calls for a comprehensive survey to collect your thoughts and opinions on a variety of community topics. We’re currently preparing a survey to be distributed in the coming months. We want to ensure this effort proves productive and beneficial, addressing issues of concern to the community now and in the future. Our hope is that these results will help us continue to develop and improve our service to the community. As a multi-generational community, our residency is composed of a diverse demographic. To enable all interested residents to participate, the survey will be available in both digital and printed formats. We value all residents’ contributions and will take every effort to make the survey accessible to everyone. Additional information regarding the community survey will be shared as distribution draws closer. Watch myvistancia.com, this magazine and email newsletters for this information.

Understanding Residents’ Needs In the meantime, if you have questions, comments or concerns you’d like to address with the Association, you can bring them directly to the management team. The Association Office at the Mountain Vista Club is open 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday - Friday; the team can be reached at 623-215-8646, or you can email me directly at cpustejovsky@ccmcnet.com. If you wish to have more of a direct voice in the community, I invite you to attend our monthly Board of Directors meetings or to volunteer on one of our committees. Board schedules and agendas, as well as a Committee Interest Form, can be found at myvistancia.com/committee. Whether by completing our upcoming survey or serving on a committee, we appreciate our residents’ involvement in the community. Together, we make Vistancia feel like home.

board report Accurate Information Helps Dispel Rumor, Myth By John Fairchild

Treasurer | Board of Directors

I’m fairly active on social media, partly to stay in touch with the many friends I’ve met through the years and to help promote and communicate my work. I’m on several of the Vistancia Facebook pages, and a few recent posts have me thinking about communications in the community. Through the year and a half I have served on the Board, our communication structure has been completely revised, yet it seems there are still some gaps and some people seem to struggle getting accurate information. This magazine, our community website and our email newsletters form the foundation of our communications efforts. If you haven’t yet, check out the new website, launched in March, and you’ll find a plethora of information available. Let me also note once again, as well, this magazine doesn’t cost you a penny, as it is funded entirely through a publishersponsored advertising program. It’s our community “newsletter” and every household receives one. It’s easy to contact any member of our management team through the website, via phone or by email, and we encourage you to ask questions, seek information and get to know the team. They are here to assist you, and I believe they really do want to help. I’ve been in the community for seven years, and I have always been able to find/get the information I needed with a simple call or email. Under the “Resident Services” section of the website, you can report maintenance concerns or compliance violations. One can also check upcoming events, see the community calendar and even get information on businesses focused on Vistancia (yes, they pay a fee to advertise, which helps offset website costs). You can “like” the Vistancia Village Association page on Facebook and communicate that way, too. Share your pictures on Instagram and check out our YouTube channel. Of course, there are many unofficial Facebook pages, including several neighborhood pages – all great for communicating with your neighbors and staying in touch - but if you have a question about the community or something going on, I encourage you to go to the source and contact your CCMC management team. Once you have the information, share it on Facebook, since you’re almost certainly not the only curious one.

One important communications addition is the “text alert” system, whereby, in any emergency or need to immediately communicate, our management team can send a text directly to your phone. It has already been used when a short-term closing of one pool was necessary and in a police matter. You can subscribe on the website, where you can also sign up to receive the weekly email newsletters the management team sends. We’re in this together. You have elected your board to conduct the business of our community. We receive no compensation and volunteer our time. We want you to know that if you encounter issues receiving timely information or other challenges, you can just send the management team an email and your concerns will be addressed. I believe one of the greatest communication tools we, as a Board, have is the committees of residents who invest their time in specific areas, such as Activities, Budget, Communications, Landscape and Pool Advisory. Many of the improvements made in the past year, as well as some still pending, are a direct result of their work and recommendations to the board. We’re fortunate to live in a community with an outstanding police department, terrific fire/EMS protection and accessible, responsive local government. We can keep this community great by being good neighbors, seeking information we need and communicating with each other. Let’s not let the antagonism and divisiveness of national politics - and much of social media - divide us! Dispel rumors with facts, and, together, we’ll continue improving and learning how to be a great community of very diverse people.

covenants corner Are Drones Allowed in the Community? By Stephanie DeAlba

Covenants Coordinator

Drones are quite the “buzz” nowadays, and several homeowners have inquired about drone usage in the community. Regarding drones flying over personal property and whether any rules pertain to such behavior, the short answer is no. There is currently no restriction in the CC&Rs or any adopted policies pertaining to the use of drones. In August 2016, the FAA released its guidelines for flying civil and commercial drones. Hopefully this brief guide to the FAA regulations and rules will help. REGISTERING YOUR DRONE The FAA requires drones weighing more than .55 pounds to be registered. Registration costs $5 and takes approximately five minutes to fill out your information. Once accepted, you will be emailed a registration number, which directly ties you to your drone. Drones can be registered with the FAA at federaldroneregistration.com. ESTABLISHING A VISIBLE LINE OF SIGHT This is a crucial part of safe drone operation. A visible line of sight means the drone must always be in clear view of the operator. This ensures you know where it’s flying, where it’s heading and how to bring it back if there’s a problem. A clear view means perfect visibility with the naked eye and, therefore, restricts drone use at dusk and nighttime. The exception to the rule is if the drone has adequate safety lights installed. These rules on establishing a line of sight also bring up the issue of height and distance. The FAA has always been keen to restrict the movement of drones in controlled areas, such as airspace and private property. As a drone pilot, it’s your duty to be aware and respectful of these off-limit spaces. IMPORTANCE OF STAYING SAFE Safety is the number-one concern for the FAA. They don’t want innocent bystanders injured. That’s why it’s against FAA rules and regulations to fly directly over people that are not involved or to fly at speeds faster than 100 mph. Also, avoid any nearby airports, as piloting a drone within their five-mile radius is against FAA regulations. This one is a given, but it’s also frowned upon to pilot drones while under the influence of alcohol and other mind-altering substances.

SAFETY GUIDELINES These additional guidelines will help keep you and others safe. • Fly at or below 400 feet. • Keep your drone within sight. • Never fly near other aircraft, especially near airports. • Never fly over groups of people. • Never fly over stadiums or sporting events. • Never fly near emergency response efforts, such as fires. • Be aware of airspace requirements. If you wish to report unsafe operation of an unmanned aircraft, please contact the FAA Regional Operations Center. The Western Regions Operations Center (W-ROC) 24-hour Accident and Incident Response number is 425-227-1389.

communications brief In late June, social media monolith Facebook crossed the threshold of two billion monthly users. Even just the words “two billion” sound monumental, but the impact is even greater when you consider that means nearly onethird of the world’s population uses Facebook. As documented in the 2010 film “The Social Network,” Facebook originally targeted a much smaller audience. Personally, I found myself among the first 10 users on the Eastern Illinois University campus to register when my alma mater joined the service in 2004. To say life hasn’t been the same since would be an understatement. Facebook has changed the way we communicate. Not only does it allow for us to connect with friends and family across the country by sharing personal updates and photos, it has allowed for relationships to prosper. For businesses and professional organizations, it has provided a new outlet to communicate with customers or members. Facebook has truly become an integral part of our communications strategy. In the year from June 2016 to June 2017, we expanded the following of the Vistancia Village Association page by nearly 24 percent. We’re currently less than 100 “likes” away from reaching the 2,000-follower milestone. Though that number lacks the panache of Facebook’s two billion, we’re thrilled to have a tool capable of connecting us with so many current, past and potential residents. If you don’t already like the official Vistancia Village Association page, I encourage you to do so, as we use it as a means of sharing important community information, as well as engaging features such as photo galleries and multimedia presentations. We hope to venture into the arena of live-streaming video later this year.

Building Community on Facebook By Adam Testa

Communications Coordinator

In addition to the official Vistancia Village Association page, you’ll find several resident-run Facebook pages and groups on Facebook, as well. These pages are not affiliated with the Association; we’re only involved with our official page. While these groups and pages are a great way to share information and connect with neighbors, please be conscious that much of the content generated there is not coming directly from the management team, and we cannot guarantee the accuracy of information presented. Personally, I love Facebook. I have made friends across the world who I’ve never met in person because of the abilities the social network offers. Professionally, social media is a mixed bag, as it’s a tremendous resource but also one where misinformation can easily spread and create undue turmoil. We love connecting with our residents on social networks, but if you ever see something and question its validity, please pick up the phone and call the Association Office at 623-215-8646 or send an email to any member of the management team. I hope you’ll help us push our way past 2,000 followers. Together, we build a community, both in person and in the digital world. When it comes to behavior on social media, I leave you with the immortal words of the legendary Bill S. Preston, Esq., “Be excellent to each other.”

NEXT BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING IS AUG. 22 The Board of Directors meets for its regular business meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 22, at the MVC Clubhouse. An agenda and meeting packet will be posted at myvistancia.com prior to the meeting.

We’re firmly in monsoon season, and rain can come in buckets or we can experience high winds and a lightning show with very little rain. The good news is, even with little monsoon rains, higher humidity can still lessen the need for adding water to your landscape. Due to additional moisture in the air, plants transpire much slower than during low humidity and high temperatures. Take advantage of this time of year by keeping an eye on your landscape. The Bermuda turf will look as good as it has all year with the higher humidity. Fertilize the turf one last time to promote storage of nutrients in the root system before it goes dormant later in the fall. If you choose to let the turf go dormant, continue to water lightly and mow weekly until nighttime temperatures dip below 65 degrees at night. After about a week of 65 degrees at night, Bermuda will start to go to sleep for the winter. If you’re going to overseed with rye grass, start reducing watering times and mow lower each week at the beginning of September. By the end of September, you will be ready to seed with rye.

CA RE TO KN OW

Remember, safety first wh en working around your home; please be sure to use common sense. Hydrate with wat er and complete the most difficult, strenuo us tasks before the hottest part of the day. Be sure to pack the kids an extra bottle of water as they head back to school this month , especially if they’re walking to a bus stop or school.

Summertime is all about making memories. From vacations to family picnics, fireworks to friendships, the season is filled with inspiring imagery. Photography allows those memories to not only live on but also to be shared with others. For young Mason Doolittle, the memories of his watermelon summer are now immortalized in Vistancia history as he graces the cover of this month’s magazine. Taken by his mother Brandi at the Sunset Point roundabout in June, this photo emanates life in Vistancia with vibrant colors and a joyful spirit. Congratulations to Brandi for being selected as the winner of our #ShotsOfSummer photo content. We received several great entries, many of which are showcased here. Thank you to everyone who participated; we hope to make #ShotsOfSummer an annual contest, so start planning for next year.

featured activity Toddlers Learn Dance One Tippie Toe at a Time By Hannah Crosby

Lifestyle Assistant

“Dancers are made, not born,” said Mikhail Baryshnikov, one of the greatest ballet dancers in history. Like any other sport, dancing takes years of training and hard work to gain the skills needed to be successful. Starting to train as a toddler provides amazing benefits. Not only does dancing young assist the path to becoming a great dancer, it also teaches skills in other important areas, such as social awareness, cognitive development and even emotional maturity. Kristi Hunter saw the value in toddler dance classes. She reached out to us with a desire to share her experience with her fellow residents. As a former dancer, she knew how beneficial starting young was for her personal creativity. We worked with her to create the Tippie Toes Toddler Dance Class. Before her class even started in July, we had to add a second session because of high volumes of registration. Here’s Kristi’s story about how she decided to get involved. “Tippie Toes Toddler Dance was created from a desire to get our youngest child involved in dance. As a family, we’ve always loved taking advantage of the clubs and classes Vistancia offers, and we wanted to see if we could propose something for this age group that could work for other families, too. I have been dancing since I was a young child, and I believe it was such a great outlet and resource to let my creativity shine through the years. I hope the students in my class will come to love and appreciate dance for themselves, and I know they will have fun with music, movement and learning social skills, as well. Dance is such a great stimulant for the imagination! Each week, we focus on creative dance movements, as well as introductions to basic ballet. Every month, we end with a little ‘mini-performance’ of a routine we work on throughout the month. My wish is for the dancers to learn, grow and enjoy their time spent in class.” We couldn’t be more excited for Kristi and the immediate success she’s experienced. As a community, it’s always our goal for classes to resonate with residents and be successful for both the attendees and the instructor. If you have a toddler at home, consider reaching out to Kristi about signing up for Tippie Toes Toddler Dance Class. What better way to keep your toddler active and learning than combining both into one? The toddlers don’t even realize the mental and physical developments they’re making through all the fun. And, who knows; maybe one of Kristi's students will grow up to be the next Mikhail Baryshnikov.

artist gallery Embark on an Artistic Journey By Beth Hill

Owner | Palate2Palette

These words of the renowned Pablo Picasso ring true. Some people are better at letting their creative urges out more easily than others. In today’s world, where we’re always plugged into something, it’s hard to slow down. For most of us, it’s hard to simply observe the world around us; we typically don’t have a lot of time to be creative in our everyday lives. So many falsefully believe “I don’t have an artistic bone in my body,” but after participating in an art class, they leave feeling proud and accomplished. When taking the first steps of your artistic journey, keep the following in mind: Art is meant to be seen. Don’t be scared to let people see what you have created. Keep your old drawings, doodles and paintings. That way, you can look back to see your improvements over time. Art can be developed with interest. Art can be learned, discovered and developed. Try new things. Practice the skill of doodling relentlessly. This will help your perspective and help you realize your capabilities. Don’t give up. The only way to guarantee failure is to stop trying. Understand the relationship between fun art and fine art. If you relax and have fun doing it, it will turn out fine! Art should be relaxing, fun and therapeutic. Whatever your abilities, art is an outlet allowing us to escape everyday life, even if just for an hour or two. Remember, the goal is “to create a thing of beauty,” and, as we all know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Beth Hill is a Vistancia resident and owner of Palate2Palette. She hosts the Corks and Canvas program in Vistancia, which returns Friday, Sept. 1.

Elementary School Staff

Lake Pleasant Elementary is excited to welcome Mr. Dustin Hamman as our new principal. Lake Pleasant enjoys rich academic and cultural excellence resulting from a school staff providing a diversity of experiences for the students. Mr. Hamman is truly honored to be appointed to this position and looks forward to working with the dedicated staff to provide the best possible educational program for our students. Before being appointed as principal at Lake Pleasant, his entire 14-year professional career has been within the Peoria Unified School District. He served as the assistant principal at Vistancia Elementary for the past three years. Prior to that, he served as an administrator at Coyote Hills and Parkridge. All stakeholders - parents, teachers, support staff and administration - play an integral role in encouraging our children to become active learners. Hamman believes we provide opportunities for our students to develop these skills in order to become productive citizens in our vastly changing society. The educational program must be academically challenging, engage each student at their level, link the curriculum to previous knowledge and be exciting to promote further exploration of new ideas. While he believes academics are a very important part of education, Hamman also believes we have the opportunity to educate and grow the whole child socially, emotionally and behaviorally. Make sure you join us for: Class Lists Posted | 3:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 4 Meet the Teacher Night | 4:30-6:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 7 School Resumes | Wednesday, Aug. 9 School Office Hours | 7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday If you’re new to the area, please come in to enroll your student before school starts on Aug. 9.

vistancia elementary Welcome Back! By Jennifer Kazmar Principal

The beginning of a new school year is a key part of American tradition and certainly a focus for Vistancia families this time of year. We want to offer a heartfelt welcome to our new families and to those returning to our school. Our staff’s goal is to form a strong alliance with you to help create conditions for a successful school year for your son or daughter. Meet the Teacher Night is 5-6:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 7. Class homeroom lists will be posted in front of the school office after 3:30 p.m. that day. The first day of school is Wednesday, Aug. 9, and our standard school hours are 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Students can begin arriving on campus at 7:40 a.m. This year, the Peoria Unified School District is having early-release days every Monday, with students dismissing at 1 p.m. We’re pleased to share that our school continues to maintain an “A” label from the Arizona Department of Education, as well as status as a National Blue Ribbon School. As always, we’re continuing to develop our overall programming and look forward to another outstanding year of working with our most precious commodity - our children.

A GOAL WITHOUT A PLAN IS JUST A WISH.

The Village at Vistancia is full of good neighbors, whose kind acts make this community such a wonderful place to live. That’s why Vistancia and Print2order® are happy to offer this new program, It Takes a Village, to recognize good neighbors and share the stories of their selfless acts of kindness. As a resident of Vistancia we are asking you to share the stories about your neighbors who went above and beyond the normal neighborly duties. There is no act to small or insignificant; villages are built one kind act at a time. Each quarter we will select one story to spotlight in the Vistancia Living Magazine and in the spirit of giving back, Print2order will pay the quarterly assessments* for both the good neighbor and the neighbor who shared the story. The first winner will be announced in the September edition for the October assessments.

DO YOU HAVE A GOOD NEIGHBOR YOU WOULD LIKE TO NOMINATE? Please submit your name and contact information, along with the resident’s name, address, and the reason you are nominating them. Winners are selected every quarter from the previous nominations. Show your neighbors you appreciate them today by submitting a nomination on www.myvistancia.com/villagenomination. ®

pro tip Keep Youth Safe on the Internet, Social Media By Daren Sanborn

While hard to believe, it’s back-toschool time already. Where did the summer go? Given the timing, I thought it would be good to offer a few tips to keep in mind as kids get ready to return to school. Most kids have some form of electronic available once they hit a certain age. As they get older, they have more technology available to them in the form of cellphones and personal computers. Because technology evolves rapidly, parents have a hard time keeping up with new websites and how to best protect kids online. Along with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, new apps, such as WhatsApp, Kik, Snapchat, Voxer and Whisper, continue to gain popularity with the younger crowd. Studies have shown most kids are always within 10 feet of their smartphone. Here’s some basic advice to keep in mind regarding cellphone and technology safety. Educate youth on the dangers of smartphones. This includes texting while driving or riding a bicycle, as well as the dangers of cyber-bullying. Also, stress the importance of creating strong passwords, never sharing those passwords and not using the same password for different accounts.

Owner | DSanborn Design

Regularly review your child’s cellphone. Monitor the apps they have installed and how they’re using them. If you’re concerned about texting, install a monitoring app. Many programs allow you to monitor how often your child is texting and to receive copies of their texts. Limit where students can use computers. For those with laptops, consider allowing them to use the devices only in common or public areas. Monitor website visits. Software can be installed on laptops or your wi-fi router to limit and monitor the sites users can visit. In addition to monitoring cellphone usage, you can also use GPS tracking to keep an eye on where children are or where they’ve been throughout the day. Free apps, such as iPhone’s “Find My Friends,” allow you to see their location at any given time.

Consider limiting your child’s access to their phone. Set parameters, especially at night.

Other paid apps exist to track kids’ locations at regular intervals, and some apps even have the ability to set up a “geo-fence,” alerting you when their phone exits a predefined boundary.

Install apps or set permissions on their phone limiting what they can install and when they can be online. If you don’t want to physically take the device away from your child, several services are available to limit the device’s capabilities based on your own settings.

I encourage you to discuss issues of social media and internet safety with your children. Using these apps to monitor their activity might seem like invasion of privacy to some, but doing so helps protect the safety and well-being of our youth.

Talk to your cellphone provider about tools they have allowing you to limit usage. Companies can set limits by line, by cellular connection or by using the phone’s settings to limit apps with access to cellular data.

Daren Sanborn is the owner of DSanborn Design, a Vistancia-based company providing services in the areas of website design and hosting, custom app development, social media management and more.

city of peoria City Offering New Classes in North Peoria By Bridget Binsbacher

Mesquite District Representative | Peoria City Council

The summer season (and accompanying heat) is in full swing here in Peoria. Summer usually means long days with the challenge of how to occupy your children. While the city can’t control the sunshine, we can try to make your summer more fun. Consider checking out the multitude of offerings for north Peoria residents looking for something different this summer. There are classes for everyone from kids to adults, artists to athletes. You might not want to be out on Lake Pleasant in the daytime, but have you tried moonlight kayaking? Residents have an opportunity to be guided on a 1.5-hour tour by the light of a full moon this month and next. Kayak rental is included. If you’d rather have green thumbs than wet shoes, maybe our garden prep class is right for you. Planting Your Fall Garden will take place at Sunrise Mountain Library, providing expert advice on what you can do now to prepare for a fabulous fall garden. There’s plenty for the kids, as well. Young Rembrandt’s After-School Drawing Program offers grade-schoolers an opportunity to work on their artistry while developing creative skills that will last a lifetime. No teen likes going back to school, so Peoria’s Teen Team is trying to make the return a little easier. During the month of August, they will be hosting two events, a back-to-school dance and a Nerf war, in Vistancia; both events are open to all interested teens. Complete details about these classes can be found at peoriaaz.gov/recreation. Northern Community Park Public Art Public art is an important part of any city, and I’m so proud of the ways Peoria has incorporated artwork throughout our wonderful city. I am very pleased to report the public art for the Northern Community Park has been chosen and will be a beautiful addition to our district’s new park. I expect these pieces to serve as centerpieces for the park, complementing our natural surroundings and contributing to its overall vibe. The pieces, selected and recommended by the Peoria Arts Commission, were approved by the city council in May.

Bridget Binsbacher poses with Juli McGreal Shregal and Kris Friedman of Billy’s Place, Peoria Chamber’s Nonprofit of the Year, and Roz Shanley and Erin Shreenan of the Peoria Diamond Club.

Artist Beth Nybeck’s piece, “Vida,” was inspired by the agave plant and pays tribute to strength, endurance, adaptability and life. Artist David Boyer’s “Songbirds” is a kinetic wind sculpture with seven mechanical flyers that will invoke beautiful melodies on breezy days. Both artists will work with the park’s design and building teams to select their locations throughout the park. Back-to-School Safety Tips Children are at the greatest risk for injuries in the time immediately before and after school. Here are some simple rules to follow to make sure your children are safe this school year. • Make sure children know their address and phone number.

• Plan your child’s route to school with the least street crossings.

• Teach them the rules of the road and to obey all traffic signs and the school crossing guards.

• Teach your kids not to talk to strangers or accept

rides from anyone other than yourself or approved friends and family.
