With the return of good weather, it's not surprising that we are seeing -- and hearing -- more of our pets outside for more of the day. As good neighbors and courteous pet owners, we have a responsibility to our community to mind after our beloved pets. This includes controlling incessant barking, picking up after them as we walk the community, and controlling pets by using a lead. Please be respectful of your neighbors by stepping in to calm your barking dog and by cleaning up after your pets so that all can enjoy the outdoors. Also, as well-behaved as your pets may be, you can never be certain how they will react to unpredicted circumstances. Keeping them under control is important to everyone's safety.

If you are a cat owner, please resist turning your cat out to roam the community freely. Animal Control regards cats as a "nuisance animal" similar to a skunk or raccoon and will not remove them. However, homeowners have the right to contact a pest control contractor who is authorized to trap and dispose of unwanted pests. Unfortunately, an untagged family pet may get caught in the process. Also, keep in mind that the coyote population is alive and well in this area and your domesticated tabby is not a skilled match.

The VAT Board schedules all routine maintenance at the community park either during the winter months or prior to summer recess in an effort to minimize any inconvenience to homeowners and to ensure that the park is a safe place to play. However, some repairs must be scheduled under specific weather conditions. The safety surface and play equipment require temperatures at a minimum of 50 degrees and dry conditions. Repairs resulting from vandalism, especially those related to safety, must be addressed as soon as possible whenever they occur.

Recently, youngsters damaged shelter house gutters and carved inappropriate drawings and language into both picnic tables. The table tops have been temporarily removed for repair and should be back in place in one week.

Parents, please review all park rules with your children. (The rules appear below on this website.) Note that children under 14 years of age must be accompanied by an adult while at the park. Also, bicycles, scooters, skates, etc., may not be ridden on the rubber play surface.
