VERY HAPPY WITH JAY“We just completed our third real buy/sell transaction with Jay, and we couldn’t be happier with his services. He sold our house at a good price in a challenging market, where other comparable listed homes aren’t moving. He knows the market, deals very intelligently with other brokers, and communicates regularly with his clients. Jay’s after-sale follow-up is second-to-none. He has a great relationship with area tradesmen and is a deep resource for home improvement advice and direction. My wife and I are completely impressed by Jay’s personal and professional manner; we are proud now to count him as a good friend. If you’re buying or selling a house in northwest Phoenix, do yourself a favor: get Jay on your team as your very first move. Great real estate agent, and an even greater person.” -Ben L.

We are honored to have been chosen as the new publisher and I hope that you will enjoy what you find inside. As you may already know, this magazine is made possible by the advertisers highlighted in these pages. Many of them have been supporting this community for many years and I personally would like to thank them for their continued support through this transition. I hope that as a reader you will continue supporting the advertisers as the need for their services arise. Inside you will find insights to the community and information that is important to you. While most of it has remained the same, you will also find some new items to note. In this first edition, with the help of the Vistancia management team, we will be launching a good neighbor program called It Takes a Village. There are many good deeds that go unnoticed and with your input, we would like to recognize the members of this community for their selfless actions. You can learn more on page 21. Lastly, I would like to thank all those who made this first issue come together so smoothly. The Vistancia management team and the contributors have been amazing to work with.

manager’s message board report Rekindling the Neighborhoods of Old By Dennis Reiber
Board of Directors Representative
Introducing Covenants Coordinator Stephanie DeAlba By Craig Pustejovsky
The Board of Directors and the management team recently completed an analysis of the Association’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Out of that initiative came a strategic plan for 2017-2018, which we will approach collaboratively through the coming year.
Most of us remember with some fondness, if not more than a touch of nostalgia, the neighborhoods where we grew up. Playing with friends until the streetlights came on, the automatic call of our parents - usually our mom saying it’s time to come home.
One of the strategic priorities established by the Board and management team was strengthening our community’s compliance and covenants enforcement program. The timing of this fell in line with a new personnel opportunity, as well.
Neighbors knew each other, not only by the parents but by whose kids belonged to whom. Backyard barbecues brought people together, and a general sense of caring permeated the air.
Andrew Olson, who served as the Association’s Covenants Coordinator for three years, accepted a promotion within CCMC. We all wish Andrew the best in his new role and are excited to see his career continue to develop. Filling the Covenants Coordinator position is not any easy task, as it takes a special personality to fill the role, especially in a community like Vistancia.
As a new director on the Association Board, this is the spirit I want to capture and cultivate. We’re now in year two of making the transition from a developer-run to a homeowner board, and I have been impressed with the vast amount of groundwork covered by our inaugural Board. But we still have much to do. Through the years, in my experience working as a security evaluator for the Department of Defense, and even in my current occupation at Grand Canyon University, I’ve often found the resolution of a problem doesn’t necessarily come from those in charge, though they may implement the action. Often, the solution is birthed in the observations of those at the epicenter of the problem. My guiding philosophy through the next two years is to use my experience in infrastructure and community interaction to help our Board make decisions in the best interest of our entire neighborhood. One of the greatest aspects of discovering Vistancia was that both my wife Sandy and I were immediately struck by the cordiality of the neighbors, the respect of the younger generation and the almost-palpable sense of caring. I have spent more than 20 years learning how to provide security, develop community and provide timely and realistic resolutions to neighborhoods across the country and around the world. It’s this passion, experience and desire to serve that prompted me to become a part of this Board. I know, with your input and thoughts, we can become a truly great community and a great example not only of what neighbors - and neighborhoods - once were but what they can become again.
I believe Stephanie DeAlba is exactly the type of person we need in this role, and I’m pleased to officially introduce her as your new Covenants Coordinator. Stephanie comes to Vistancia from Estrella, a Goodyear community also managed by CCMC, where she served as Covenants and Compliance Coordinator from November 2015 until accepting the position here in our community. In Estrella, a community slightly larger than Vistancia, she learned the skills necessary to thrive in this position and develop it into something even larger and more meaningful for the community. Stephanie developed an interest in property management and real estate while employed as a leasing agent/resident services coordinator in her hometown of San Diego. A lover of the outdoors, Vistancia makes a perfect home-away-from-home for Stephanie, as she enjoys the scenic desert views our residents have come to know and love. From a procedural standpoint, Stephanie comes equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to successfully build upon the compliance programs developed by her predecessors. Please be patient as she learns her way around Vistancia and our governance. Join me in welcoming Stephanie DeAlba as the newest member of the Vistancia management team. We’re fortunate to have someone with her skills and experience

by design Complete Applications Make Review Process Easy By Susan Claeys
Design Review Coordinator
Part of my role at the Association entails educating and guiding homeowners, landscapers, pool builders, solar companies and other vendors through the design review process. There are so many homeowners’ associations in Arizona, and each has its own sets of rules and restrictions to navigate. Here in Vistancia, it’s vital each Modification Application submittal is complete before it will be reviewed by the Design Review Committee. Completing the submittal for installation of items such as pergolas, pools and patios (hardscape) will require a detailed diagram. These diagrams need to illustrate that the item meets the required five-feet setback from any property wall, so these measurement details must be included on the diagram. Homes with view fences are required to provide additional information about items being installed because they can often be seen from neighboring properties. Photos showing choice of color and material are also required. For pergolas, full dimensions (height, width, length) are required; the structure’s maximum size is 10 percent of the total rear-year square footage. This restriction helps keep the structure in proportion to the size of the yard. Before beginning any new exterior project, please take a moment to read the Design Guidelines, available at myvistancia.com, to familiarize yourself with any requirements that might exist for your project. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or if the Design Guidelines don’t provide the guidance you’re seeking. I want your submittal to be successful the first time it is presented to the DRC, so I review each one to ensure it is complete. Submittals are due the Friday before the DRC meeting you’re targeting for approval to allow time to review the application and obtain any missing information. I, along with the rest of the management team, appreciate everyone who participates in the design review process.

How Do You Measure, Measure a Year By Adam Testa
While trying to choose a topic for this month’s column, I had many ideas racing through my mind. A fleeting thought about how the end of June marks my oneyear anniversary in Vistancia gave way to a more colorful internal dialogue, realizing I have, in fact, been in this role for nearly a year. Strategic Plan Implemented The Board of Directors and CCMC management team have formulated a strategic plan for 2017-2018. The plan establishes a number of goals, including retaining a sense of community, expanding communications, strengthening the management team, improving compliance and design review, and empowering the Board and committees. The full plan can be reviewed at myvistancia.com. Landscape Improvements Approved At its April meeting, the Board of Directors approved an expenditure of $31,141 for granite, plant and tree replacement. This plan includes adding more than 850 flowers and five trees to the community’s common area landscape. Beware Creatures and Critters The summer season brings the native wildlife, including snakes, scorpions and spiders, out of hiding. These critters use rocks and enclosed structures for shade, protection and concealment, so be sure children are aware and are exercising safety while playing outside.
In some ways, it’s shocking the time has gone so fast; in others, we’ve made so much progress it seems like it’s been much longer. I’ve come to realize the adage is true: If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. During his speech at my wedding reception in April, my best man summed it up best by saying, “He found a career he loves – maybe a little too much.” The reality is I do love what I do. This role has offered me opportunities to showcase my strengths, improve on my weaknesses and explore new skills and responsibilities. I’m continually grateful to the leadership at the CCMC corporate office, my fellow management team members, the Board of Directors, the Communications Committee and, most importantly, you, the residents, for allowing me the opportunities I’ve had and for supporting each new initiative we’ve embarked upon. In many work environments, progress is held up by bureaucracy, procedure and red tape. Here, we’ve been able to work together seamlessly to ensure progress and advancement in our communications program happened efficiently and effectively. In one year’s time, we’ve made tremendous strides in redeveloping our communications program. A new system for sending eNews, revamped social media efforts, the creation of the new myvistancia.com and now the relaunch of this magazine have been the pinnacles of the past year, but there have been small victories along the way, too. To me, one of the highlights has come from an outside perspective, as other communities within the CCMC portfolio have used Vistancia as a model and reference for implementing changes and improvements to their own communications efforts. As much progress as we’ve made in the past year, there’s still work to be done. In the coming year, I anticipate pushing the boundaries of what we’re doing, exploring new avenues of communications and ensuring we’re doing all we can to provide you the information you need, when you need it and in the form you want to receive it. If you’re interested in participating, I encourage you to consider joining the Communications Committee; new perspectives help ensure we’re always moving forward. An iconic song from a popular musical asks the question, “How do you measure, measure a year?” While I could do so in website pageviews, eNews open rates or Facebook likes, it’s better to do so as the song suggests – with love. Serving Vistancia has truly become a labor of love, and I hope you reciprocate that loving feeling in your response to the changes we’ve made; we’ve done so for you. Here’s to looking back on a year of successes and looking ahead to many more to come.

Prepare Your Landscape for Monsoon Season By Randy Zellers
West Valley Branch Manager | Caretaker Landscape
Monsoon season will be here soon. Officially lasting from June 15-Sept. 30, this is the time of year to expect a change in the air, as humidity increases, billowing clouds form in the east and winds change from the west to the southeast. These factors all allow large thunderstorms to build along the Mongolian Rim and move southwest as they increase in intensity. The monsoon season is one of two rainy seasons defining the Sonoran Desert annually. As much as 70 percent of the region’s rainfall can occur during the summer monsoon; we typically receive one-third of our annual rainfall during this time. Because of this, our desert is considered relatively “wet” compared to others, such as the Sahara. With these storms come severe outflow winds caused by towering thunder clouds collapsing under their own weight, followed by strong winds and dust. These winds, as we all know, can
cause extensive damage to structures, trees and just about anything else in their path. With proper planning, most damage to trees can be mitigated with a tree-management program. A tree-management program addresses hazards that might threaten the public and property, corrects structural defects and helps build a healthy “urban forest.” Ensure you have properly staked trees and have a professional walk your property to identify hazard trees. As humidity increases, plant growth will be stimulated and desert-adapted plants will begin to bloom. The humidity increase will be the final blow to any remaining rye grass that doesn’t succumb to the intense heat of June. Finally, after dust has blown through and the rains have begun, open your windows and enjoy the cool breeze and smells of our native desert plants.

As residents of all ages look to beat the heat and make the most of the season, we’re hosting three community events to get both the young and the young-at-heart to join the fun.

featured activity Mah-Jongg: Building Community One Tile at a Time By the Lifestyle Team
Certain outlets in our lives help us recuperate from difficult situations or events. Some experiences are extreme; others, not so much, but regardless of the situation, we always find the perfect remedy to ensure the preservation of ourselves and our friendships. Mah-jongg is one of many clubs that make up Vistancia’s healthy lifestyle program. Club facilitator Patty Hopkins, who moved to the community with her husband 11 years ago, says playing mah-jongg helped her recover from tough times and allowed her a space to heal. This is her story. “My husband was experiencing some health issues. During that time, to ease my mind, I learned how to play mah-jongg. My friends came to my house once a week to play; it was the highlight of my social life. When my husband passed away, I was at a loss as to what to do. After a while, I decided to check out some of the activities Vistancia had to offer. I joined the bunco group with Harrianne Kopel. Not only did I love the game, the people surrounding me made my experience much more enjoyable. This wonderful experience encouraged me to take part in the once-a-month luncheon group. There, I met many people interested in learning the game of mah-jongg. I decided to invite everyone to my house to learn the game. It was such a positive turnout, I knew we needed a bigger space.” Patty came to the Association with the idea of launching a new club. We quickly added mah-jongg to the lineup and appointed Patty as the club’s facilitator. We worked closely with her to develop marketing material and allowed her to utilize the clubhouse for meetings. Mah-jongg has been a part of the community for about two years and has grown from only a few members to more than 20. Patty has truly provided the community a wonderful opportunity for residents to connect. As the Association’s lifestyle team, we find comfort in knowing residents help each other come together and embrace common interests. A healthy lifestyle program brings out the best in who we are as individuals and provides an opportunity to share those sides of us with others. It can also be the perfect outlet or place of healing when you’re surrounded by wonderful, caring and supportive people. Sometimes, life is all fun and games; what’s stopping you from joining?

The design consists of simple bead stringing and knots and can be easily completed in less than two hours. Using beads of your choice, you can create your own custom design. SUPPLIES • Fine hemp cord • 6-8-millimeter natural stone and wood beads (or beads of your choice with a .5-1 millimeter hole) • Copper ring beads (or other metal ring beads, approximately one-half inch in diameter) • Large-hole metal beads or metal accessories (choose large-hole findings like Pandora beads that are large enough to string onto two pieces of cord) • Unvarnished rosewood beads • Suede lace • Chapstick or other wax INSTRUCTIONS 1. Cut two to four strands of hemp cord, approximately nine inches in length. 2. Cut two pieces of suede lace, approximately 12 inches in length. 3. Tie the cords to a copper ring using a single knot. 4. String the beads of your choice onto each strand, making sure to incorporate at least four rosewood beads. Note, you might need to add a small amount of chapstick to the cord and experiment to find irregularly shaped beads that are easier to string. 5. Once you have strung the beads, tie off the ends of the hemp cords in a single knot. 6. Tie the ends of the suede lace to the single knot of hemp cord. Make sure the knot is secure. 7. Add a metal accessory to the hemp cord. 8. Tie another knot in the leather cord. Optionally, add another metal accessory. 9. Tie a final knot at the end. Use a tight knot, so it can fit into the copper loop you started with at the other end of the bracelet. 10. Slip the knot into the copper loop to form a clasp. 11. Add one or two drops of your favorite essential oil and enjoy! Laura Bray is a Vistancia resident, jeweler and author. Visit her website at serenesprig.com.

Use the Summer to Prepare for College Applications By Susan Larik
Owner | SusanPrep.com
College application season is an exciting time for high school students, but the multitude of options and the wealth of information available can make it feel a little overwhelming. Here are a few ways you can get a head start on the process this summer. Determine what’s important: There are thousands of colleges in the United States. How do you choose? Typically, it’s a process of narrowing down from what often starts as a long list. First, examine what’s important to you. Do you want a big school or a smaller one? Big schools offer more activities and options, but the tradeoff is larger classes and less recognition. Consider location, climate, distance from home and ease of travel. Are you looking for a particular academic program or major? Does the school offer, or is it located near, the types of leisure activities you enjoy? Are fraternities and sororities an integral part of campus life? Is cost a factor? Can you get your degree in four years? Once you establish some basic criteria, start your research. You’ll soon hone in on the factors most important to you and shorten your list. Line up references: Most teachers are happy to write recommendations for students, but popular teachers get more requests than they have time to accommodate, so ask soon—even though you won’t need the letters until the fall. That way, you’ll have references from the teachers who know you the best and think the most highly of you. Prepare an activity summary: Schools want to know what you’re involved in beyond grades and test scores. Prepare a summary of clubs, athletics, work, community service and leadership activities you’ve been involved in throughout high school. Include dates, number of weekly hours, brief descriptions and any honors or awards. You’ll use the summary as a reference when you fill out your applications, and some schools will allow you to attach it to your application to provide additional detail. Plan college visits: If you have time to visit colleges before you apply, do it. You’ll get valuable ammunition to help make your applications stand out. If this isn’t possible, set aside time for visits prior to the May 1 standard deadline to accept admission offers and mark it on your calendar. Try to visit schools when they’re in session to get the best feel for the atmosphere of each campus.
Ponder essay questions: Writing college essays can be great fun because they’re about something you’re an expert on: you! Many schools use the same questions, or “prompts,” every year, so check recent application forms on the websites of the schools you’re interested in. Prompts are typically very broad, so you can decide what to write about within a general topic. Think about elements of your background, personality, experience or goals that schools would be most interested in and consider how to communicate these elements within your essays. SusanPrep.com offers classes and private consulting on the college application process and writing college and scholarship essays that shine.

city of peoria Opportunities for Teens By Bridget Binsbacher
Mesquite District Representative | Peoria City Council
Pictured from Left to Right: Bridget Binsbacher and Madeline Briggs, an eighth-grade student from Lake Pleasant Elementary.
I’m sure many of you agree youth are the future of this country; beyond that, they are also the future of our great city. Their thoughts and opinions need to feel valued if we want to foster creativity and raise these young men and women to be leaders. We need to show them their government cares about them now more than ever. Fortunately, the youth here have an opportunity to get involved. Peoria recognizes the value of having the voice of our youth at the table and took steps to ensure this almost a decade ago when the Peoria City Council created the Youth Advisory Board (YAB). The Youth Advisory Board consists of 19 members who act in the same role as adult advisory boards. They advise city staff on the development of public recreation, special events, ordinances and proposals pertaining to youth within our community. Once a member, teens also have the opportunity to serve as a Council Youth Liaison. The Council Youth Liaison program, the first of its kind in Arizona, acts as a way for youth to participate in civic engagement at a deeper level. These liaisons serve as the bridge between the YAB and the Peoria City Council. If you’d like more information, please contact me, visit peoriaaz.gov/yab or call 623-773-8494.
Peoria Reads Mayor Carlat sponsors Peoria Reads for a second year this summer. The program began in May and is part of the mayor’s effort to help with youth literacy in Peoria. “Today a Reader, Tomorrow a Leader” encourages Peoria’s younger generation to read at least 20 minutes per day over summer vacation. Participants have chances to win prizes, such as digital tablets, Barnes and Noble gift cards and complete book sets. Program participants can also increase their chances of winning by attending free, activity-filled events throughout the summer. For more information, visit peoriaaz.gov/library. Get a Taste of Peoria on June 17 On Saturday, June 17, Peoria hosts a unique local event — Live, Laugh, Local — at Pleasant Harbor at Lake Pleasant, 40202 N. 87th Ave. Peoria’s local restaurants, brewers and boutique eateries are the stars of this public event, featuring local entertainment, demonstrations, food, wine and beer tastings, cigar bar and more. Admission is $25 for the general public, $15 for designated drivers and free for children ages five and younger. For tickets and more information, visit peoriaaz.gov/specialevents or call 623-773-7137.
Pleasant Harbor Fourth of July Fireworks Show Pleasant Harbor and Maricopa Water District host their annual Fourth of July Fireworks show on Monday, July 3.

police beat Prevention Explained in Three P’s By Bruce Walls
North Precinct Commander | Peoria Police Department
My department is attempting to reach each of our citizens to emphasize the importance of self-security, so I’m hoping to reach each of you with one of the three P’s – poem, puzzle and passage. Enjoy!
city briefs Redistricting Map Finalized The Peoria City Council officially selected a redistricting map to be used beginning with the next Council elections in August 2018. This process was required as part of the city’s mid-decade census count to rebalance each of Peoria’s six council districts. Vistancia remains in the Mesquite District. City, ABT Partner for Book Drive The city and Arizona Broadway Theater are collaborating for a summer book drive. Donate a new children’s book to the Peoria Main or Sunrise Mountain libraries and receive a special edition “Beauty and the Beast” bookmark with a coupon code for tickets to ABT’s production of the show.
I feel like I am waging a war against myself. I am constantly screaming, “Crime does affect wealth.” So, why is it people feel as though they’re immune? Cars, homes and garage doors left open — can you feel the rise of the full moon? The first call, “I’ve been robbed; they took my computer.” The second call, “Someone broke in and stole my shooter.” The third call, “We were burglarized; they got my scooter.” Here comes the troubleshooter. Calls one, two and three, there was no forced entry. You simply forgot to lock, and now you are in shock that you got got. I feel like I am waging a war against myself. No matter how much I yell, crime does affect wealth. Some will continue to ignore the screams, only to wake from their dreams The victim of a crime.
