GM’s Message:

Heraclitus once said ‘the only thing constant is change, depending on the source you reference. Even the words spoken by the wise seem subject to change.  Autumn is a season that is all about change. Turning of the leaves, changes in the weather, summer clothes are put away and cool weather clothes become the fashion, and holidays that bring out decorations that stay hidden away for the better part of the year.  Except for the people who hate being cold, many of us enjoy the change of seasons. The CSD is no exception.  Parks & Facilities switches from high-maintenance summer mode to fall and winter tasks and projects. Recreation gets some relief from the delivery of summer programming only to get busy with winter events and programs . . . and planning for the next summer.  CC&R’s begin to see recreational vehicles and watercraft brought to home for winter storage (reminder: keep your summer recreational vehicles and boats behind your fence set-back. Not sure about your CC&R’s?  Contact our CC&R office - Jim or Tim can help you out).  And our Fire Department begins to breathe easier as we move from high fire danger levels to conditions that make any fire incident much more manageable.

What changes are you looking forward to and what do you dread? Sometimes we invite change, even take it head-on. If your one of those who embraces change, good for you!  For those who do not, think about the struggle to resist.  Is it worth the fight?  Is the change a threat to you and your family? If yes, work through your plan and keep your head. If it’s not worth the fight or you’re simply scared or stubborn, think about how the change might be beneficial and could improve your quality of life.  The CSD is all about quality of life.  Parks that help you connect to nature and provide opportunities for exercise.  Recreation that provides opportunities for fun and positive social interaction, CC&R’s that are designed to set a standard for residential curb appeal, and a Fire Department that is here for your safety.  Even with all the changes, I suppose that your CSD could be one of those constants . . . except when we need to change, too.

El Dorado Disposal

Did you know that El Dorado Disposal can help you dispose of all those dead batteries?

How it works:

Call in or email customer service to receive a battery bucket. Fill this up with approved household batteries. Please make sure both +/- ends are covered with clear tape. Absolutely no duct tape due to the conductivity. When the container is full call in or email in a request for a removal. This removal will be set for your next pick-up day. An empty battery container can be left at your request.
