The Boundary
Dear RVR neighbors,
We hope all of you are staying healthy. We see so many folks and pets outside enjoying the snow, as we are.  As you all know, The Boundary has been built out over the past year, and all completed homes have residents.
Many of us use the open building sites as a cut through to the cart path, the river and golf course for recreation. Now that all  residences are occupied we respectfully request that anyone wanting to access those areas, do so at the north end of The Boundary, near the barn or the golf course parking lot.
Please do not cross between residences, as it is disruptive, and the land is privately owned. 
Thanks to you all for remembering this!
