Reminders & Highlights

Gas Leaf Blowers Prohibited
Please be aware that the Town of Carbondale has an ordinance prohibiting the use of gas powered leaf plowers. Be sure to communicate this to your contractors.

Click here to learn more about the ordinance. 
Dead Tree Initiative
RVRMA management has launched a dead tree removal initiative in RVR common areas. We have started the removal of all dead or dying trees from common areas and will continue to do so over the course of the summer. We endeavour to curb the risk of fire danger and enhance aesthetics with the elimination of these trees. We hope that the community will follow suit by clearing failing and dead landscape on their properties as well.
As a reminder, any tree removals on your property will require Administrative Approval. You can get started by clicking here to view the Home Improvement Application.
Courage Classic Fundraiser
We invite you to help support RVR resident, Michael Waski, as he bikes (along with his family and friends) in the 2022 Courage Classic Bicycle Tour supporting Children’s Hospital Colorado!  
The race will take place on July 16 and 17. In this biking event, Children’s Colorado hopes to raise $3 million dollars.

Green Tip
Please enjoy the following eco-friendly tidbit brought to you by Friends of the Environment:
Did you know that many appliances and electronic devices continue to consume electricity even when powered down?  According to Star Energy Partners these “energy vampires'' can account for up to 10 percent of your electricity bill. The worst offenders are: TVs, computers, phones, stereos, microwave ovens, coffee pots, and lamps. So unplug these gadgets when you’re not using them. This may not be convenient every day, but when you are out of town for a few days - pull the plug! You'll save energy and a little money too.
