Board of Directors
The Board of Directors and Strategic and Capital Planning Committee continues to be very busy organizing the input received from the Community Forums on the Conceptual Master Site Plan. The cut-off date for input was yesterday – Thursday, April 13.
Thank you to all that attended one or both of the Community Forums. Between the two forums we estimate over 500 residents attended. Your input has been much appreciated and we have had several very constructive suggestions. We hope to have all of your input compiled and reported back to you by May 1.
There will be a Board Meeting on Wednesday, April 19 at 3pm in the Ballroom. We hope that you will attend.
The New Resident Mixer will be held on Thursday, April 20 at 4:30pm on the patio. We look forward to meeting all the new residents and answering any questions that you may have.
And to all of you Eagles fans – don’t forget Monday night’s concert which begins at 7pm. It is always a sell-out and a lot of fun!
Enjoy your Easter weekend and the great weather!

New Pool and Spa Sign In Records
In an effort to make sure our pool needs are being met, we will now be tracking daily activity. Please look for the sign in book when you enter the pool from either gate. Please follow the prompts on the sign in sheet in the binder and include your name, lot number, number of people in your party, what you are there for (lap swim, water aerobics, volleyball, open swim) and so on. Thank you for your help.
RV Parking area at the Clubhouse
We have received complaints at the HOA office regarding the use of the RV parking area in the Northeast corner of the clubhouse parking lot. Please do not use this area to park any vehicles except RV’s and trailers with HOA permits prominently displayed in the window. It is prohibited to block off an area with cones to ‘save’ the spot for your RV – the service is strictly on a first-come, first-served basis. RV parking permits are available at the HOA office upon request. As a reminder, here are the rules regarding RV’s for The Highlands community.

Do yourself and others a favor by staying out of the desert unless absolutely necessary. The warm temperatures have really brought the snakes out of hibernation. Always take a club if you dare to go in the desert. Whatever you do, do not provoke or throw rocks or sticks at snakes. That is a how people get bit!
Same rule applies to bees. Please notify the Golf Shop and leave bee hives alone.
Average for the course year to date 5.172”
Tip/Rule of the Week– Think “Rotational” on the Course
Hole #7 Mat Update
The mat on hole #7 has been removed until we can find a replacement. In the meantime, we have painted an optional drop zone on the other side of the hazard near the cart path. This is for balls that are in the yellow hazard, not the desert.
A Message from Mike Treanor and the Staff at Golf Maintenance
April is the month that we get ready to start our transition from winter grass (Rye) to summer grass base (Bermuda). After the men’s and women’s club championships are over, you will notice changes taking place on the course. Click herefor more information.
