No Trespassing on Construction Sites!
With all of the new building happening in RVR we know many of you are curious about what is behind the construction fence. However, it is important to note this is private property and walking around the property or the home is considered trespassing.  These are also construction zones and can be a high risk setting to explore. Please be courteous of the your neighbors and respect their property.
