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!

Core Value
Provide a variety of high quality amenities and services which reflect the interests of our residents.

Architectural Landscape Committee (ALC)

Individual Style in The Highlands
Don’t feel constrained by all the architectural rules in The Highlands.  The ALC has recently added much scope for individual style on housing facades and yards.  In consultations with realtors and local architects, we have been told that color and individuality are current housing trends.  Below is a list of all the things you can currently do within the existing standards.  In addition, we are always eager to consider new ideas from homeowners. 
- Paint your house a new color.   With base color and regular and accent trim choices, there are a total of 187 combinations you could choose from.
- Add a stone veneer to garage and patio columns.
- Add a front courtyard
- Install a large entrance archway
- Add decorative ceramic tile to courtyard wall, porch columns or trash container walls
- Put in garden accent walls or terracing
- Paint your front door the color of your choice
- Install a security door.   Current trends are metallic colors and geometric designs.
- Paint your garage door an accent trim color different from house or trim
- Install a rustic metal overlay to garage door
- Change the size or style of your front door
- Put in picture windows
- Replace concrete driveway and sidewalk with pavers
- Install artistic light fixtures on garage or front porch
- Add flowering desert plants to your front yard.  The plant list contains many.

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.

Recreational Vehicles and Travel Trailers Regulations
Residents may park on the street during daylight hours (dawn to dusk) for a maximum of three days, solely for the purpose of loading or unloading. 
Slide-out extensions are permitted only if they do not infringe on the required 20 ft. Emergency Vehicle clearance.  
Reflective visual cones must be positioned at the front and rear of the RVs and/or travel trailers. 
Limited RV overnight storage parking is permitted in the Northeast parking lot of the clubhouse by permit only.
No person may occupy an RV or travel trailer overnight within The Highlands at Dove Mountain.
Permit only parking is available in the northeast corner of the clubhouse parking lot.  Residents may obtain a permit through the HOA (579-9574). 
A one-night only clubhouse parking permit may be issued by the Main Gate attendant (579-2458) if entry occurs after 4pm on weekdays or on weekends. Contact the HOA as soon as possible if more parking time is required. 
Guests may not park RVs or travel trailers on the street at any time, but may use the designated area of the clubhouse parking lot on a space available basis. Contact the HOA for permits.

Golf Course Tee Sheet Schedule for April

Go to > Golf > Tee Time Resident > Monthly Tee Time Format (or click here).


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.

Rain Totals

Average for the course year to date 5.172”

Tip/Rule of the WeekThink “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.
