Recreational Vehicle Storage
Many of our community members own all sorts of recreation vehicles and other outdoor toys and we are noticing more of these types of vehicles parked in RVR neighborhoods in recent weeks.
As a reminder, the Second Amendment to the RVR Master Declaration, Section 3.16, Vehicle Parking, Storage, Operation, and Repair states: “No boats, trailers, buses, motor homes, campers (on or off supporting vehicles), motorcycles, snowmobiles, recreational vehicles, golf carts, trucks, industrial or commercial vehicles (both cabs or trailers), abandoned or inoperable vehicles, or any other similar vehicles shall be parked or stored in or upon the Master Common Areas or upon a Lot or Unit except for temporary loading and unloading during daylight hours…”

Ranch House Holiday Schedule
’Tis the Season, for all who use the Ranch House, and for our team that works there.
Traditionally, the Ranch House is closed on the Christmas and New Year’s Day holidays. This year, those holidays fall on Saturdays. To give our hard-working team time with their families, and to honor their well-deserved holiday time off, the Ranch House will be closed the following days: December 24 and 25; December 31 and January 1, 2022.
We hope you join us in saying thanks to the Ranch House staff for all they do throughout the year, to make RVR the welcoming place it is.
