Reminders & Highlights

Tennis Court Conditions
The clay tennis courts will remain open as weather permits. When freezing temperatures occur in the evening, the courts form a layer of frost on the surface. When this happens, during the day the frost will melt and the courts become very soft, muddy and not playable. At that point, we will close the courts. We will continue to monitor court conditions. Please stay tuned for updates. Thank you everyone for supporting the RVR tennis program!
Compost Disposal
RVR members may now bring their organic waste to the Ranch House parking lot. Look for the large dumpster towards the back of the parking lot and remember to dump your items out of the box or bag you brought them in!
Deer Fencing
Deer fencing may be erected after October 15. and after you receive notice that your sprinkler system is blown out.

Irrigation Blow-Out Underway
Please be advised, RVR crews have begun shutting the water off and draining the mainline. 
You will receive a hanging tag on your door to notify you when your blowout is complete. Please remember, deer fencing may not be erected before you receive this notification. To read more about deer fencing guidelines, see section 6.58.1 of the Design Guidelines; click HERE.
If your irrigation controller is in your garage, please provide a garage code to allow the irrigation crew access to your controls. You may contact Travis Green, irrigation manager,
