March 2023 Community Newsletter
Spring is right around the corner, even if it doesn’t feel that way quite yet. Make sure to set your clocks forward on March 12th, for daylight savings, and start preparing yourself for landscaping maintenance. Please don’t blow leaves or clippings into the streets. It makes a mess of the streets and storm water drains, and just blows all over other yards. We’ve hired a new landscaping crew this year for the community and have already started preparing for spring maintenance to begin.
There’s already been calls asking when water will be delivered. Our community receives water from McMullen and Settlers Irrigation, and water turn on is estimated around April 15th, but will fluctuate. We’ll send out updates as more firm dates are set.
Annual Easter Egg Hunt
The annual Easter Egg Hunt is set for Saturday, April 8th, at 3pm, at Keith Bird Park. We need donations of plastic eggs, wrapped candies, including non-chocolate candies, and any other fillers. Please drop off donations by March 31st to Shawna Green at 4036 Wolf Rapids St. We have organized food trucks (A3 Catering) for residents to buy food from. We also will have 2 “bigger baskets” to win. Bring your basket, camera, and be on time, as the hunt goes quick!
Please take a look at the latest ACC Guidelines on the community website in the documents section before requesting approval for any improvements to your home. These have been updated. All ACC requests can be made online by filling out the ACC Request form.
The last day to volunteer to serve on the Board of Directors is Friday, March 17th. The current Board members are volunteering again, but if you’re interested, please fill out the online form.
A Candidate Meet & Greet to get to know the candidates will be held on Wednesday, April 12th, at 6pm, via Zoom. The link will be sent via email as we get closer.
The annual meeting is scheduled for Monday, May 22nd, at 6pm, in person, so be sure to mark your calendar for that as well.
We’ve seen an uptick in vandalism around communities across the valley, and unfortunately in our neighborhood. One of the playgrounds and mailbox clusters were hit with graffiti. Please keep a watchful eye out for anything out of the ordinary, and report suspicious behavior to the police. Call 911 for emergencies, but you can call 208-377-6790 for non-emergencies or file a report online at https://meridiancity.org/police/make-a-report/.
There’s been complaints about dogs barking more frequently, because they are left alone in the yard. This will only get worse as the weather gets better. Please be sure you are making sure that your fur-baby is happy and not barking the entire time you are gone. Your fur-baby and neighbors all thank you!
If you’re interested in organizing an event for the community, please reach out to HOA@brightoncorp.com.
