The offices of HOAMCO have been closed for over two weeks. The employees are doing their best to work from home. They are checking email as often as possible.
If you are planning on improving your property in any way that requires the approval of the Architectural Committee, the first step is to contact Steve Coffinger with your request. He can be reached at s.coffinger@HOAMCO.com.
The Village Board recently updated the Architectural Design Guidelines. The document can be found on the Village People website or here.
During the Open Forum at the 2018 Annual meeting, someone commented about motion sensor lights. Please note the following from the Architectural Guidelines.
- Landscape Lighting: Up to 10 lights are permitted per Lot. Must be low voltage, UL approved, downward facing and directed away from adjoining properties and/or common area.
- EXCEPTION: Corner Lots may have up to 20 lights (10 on each side). No spotlights, floodlights, motion detector controlled lights, or any other high intensity lights shall be permitted.
- EXCEPTION: Low intensity, motion detector controlled lighting may be installed as long as lights are only activated from within or upon the Lot. Must not be activated from street, adjoining lots, or common areas.
The entire document can be viewed on the Village People website on the Architectural Review Committee page. If you have lighting that violates this policy, please take corrective action. Contact Sherry Watson at HOAMCO if you see a violation.
The roll-off dumpsters have been filling up like crazy and seem to need emptying every time we turn around. Many Village People have just returned and are cleaning up lots.
It’s possible that construction contractors are not being told by owners to remove construction debris from the subdivision and are defaulting to using the roll-off dumpsters (and the general dumpsters) for their debris. The owners who are not improving their lots/using contractors are essentially subsidizing the owners who are in the cost to empty and replace the roll-off dumpsters.
Contractors are also blocking or impeding roadways when parking their vehicles/equipment.

All vehicles must be parked on the Lot Driveway area and are not to extend into the street or street easements. Vehicles may not be parked on adjacent lots. The street easements must be kept open for emergency vehicles, snow plowing, etc. All construction parking requires a permit issued by the ARC Coordinator.
TRASH & DEBRIS REMOVAL
Owners and Contractors shall clean up trash and debris at the end of each day. An approved trash receptacle must remain on the site at all times to contain all lightweight materials or packaging. Owners and Contractors are prohibited from dumping, burying or burning trash anywhere on the lot or in the subdivision. Use of Community Dumpsters is prohibited. Heavy debris, such as broken stone, wood scraps or the like, must be removed from the site immediately upon completion of the work of each trade that generated the debris. During the construction period, each construction site shall be kept neat and shall be properly policed to prevent it from becoming a public eyesore, or affecting other lots or any Common Areas. Dirt, mud or debris resulting from activity on each construction site shall be promptly removed from public or private roads, open spaces, driveways, and all other portions of the subdivision.
It’s heating up in the desert and people are itching to get to the cool country. Perhaps you are one of the lucky ones who are returning from last year. However, if 2017 is the first year you plan to spend the summer in the Village, here’s a tip that could save you some inconvenience.
Please make sure that you get approval from the Architectural Review Committee prior to bringing your home onto your lot. This applies even if you are renting your lot to someone, so please let your tenant know the process.
