Message from the BOD President for April 2018
I wanted to start out with a big THANK YOU to Cory White, President of the Spring Valley Lake Little League, and all of the Spring Valley Lake Little League officers, coaches, parents, and volunteers. I appreciate those who attended the board meeting to voice your concerns, get the latest information and participate in good discussion. Our youth are in very capable hands and will learn more than the great game of baseball, they will learn character, teamwork, leadership and sportsmanship; all of which can contribute to their development as solid citizens. I speak for the entire board when I say we are excited about the future of our park and for Spring Valley Lake Little League as a contributing part of it.
Meadowlark Park: The ground breaking event was well attended and the park renovation is now underway. This first phase is tentatively scheduled to be completed by November 2018. A rendering of phase 1 can be viewed on the Association webpage – www.svla.com. Fencing has been erected around the construction site for your safety. Please make sure to stay clear of those areas as it may present many hazards.
Lake: At the March Board of Directors meeting, Director of Operations Mr. Dennis Teece went over, in detail, the condition of the lake and how it is being managed to maintain good health. Please visit the SVLA website to read the lake management plan, history of the lake and much more.
Rules & Regulations / Guest Passes: At the March meeting, the board passed a new rule that states, “On Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, Holidays and Association sponsored events, all guests must be accompanied by an association member. Association member includes property owners and / or associate members”. This will allow the Public Safety team to better manage the use of the association assets. We are in the process of reviewing and updating the current Rules & Regulations, which this new rule will be a part of. Notice of this new rule will go out to all property owners for a 30 day review and comment before implementation.
Report from 1st District Supervisor Robert Lovingood’s Office: Don Holland, Special Assistant Supervisor for Robert Lovingood, reported out at our March board meeting that Supervisor Lovingoood is continuing to move forward with his large scale street improvement plans for Spring Valley Lake in the very near future. Also, in partnership with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and the High Desert Association of Realtors, he is offering a Neighborhood Watch meeting on April 11th at the Spring Valley Lake Community Center at 5:30 p.m. I encourage everyone to try and attend this valuable meeting. I want to thank Supervisor Lovingood for his continued support of our community. When you see him out around the community, please take the time to let him know how much we all appreciate all of his efforts.
This is the last time I have the honor of addressing the community as the board President. I have served on the board for 4 years, the last two as your President. It has been a pleasure and I have enjoyed working with everyone. My fellow board members are very giving of their time and experience. I want each of them to know how much I appreciate them.
I also want to thank the staff and volunteers: Everyone in the office, public safety, maintenance and everyone that dedicates their time and efforts towards making a difference in the Spring Valley Lake community. The staff continues to do outstanding work through the transition into our new General Manager Alfred Logan. As your President, this has been the best decision I have made. Mr. Logan continues to impress us with his knowledge and dedication to this association and community.
I want to give a very special thank you to my wife Deedee, she has been very supportive throughout my tenure on the board.
The election for new board members is underway and your vote is very important. There are 6 very qualified candidates running for 4 open seats on the board. Please vote, as they are all deserving of your consideration and willing to give of themselves to better the community that we all call home.
My work here is not done. I will continue to be a big part of the community by joining committees and participating in any way I can to help the community.
