Village Homes Emergency Water Conservation Measures Respond to New State Regulation that Prohibits Watering of Ornamental Turf
VHA Board Resolution
In response, on June 14, 2022, the Village Homes Board voted unanimously to adopt the following two emergency water conservation measures:
1) Among VHA-maintained common areas, Parque Grande, Parque Chico, and the grass near the VH pool will continue to be irrigated on a minimal irrigation schedule. Watering of all other greenbelt and common area turf will be stopped, including both those watered by VHA-supplied water as well as resident-supplied city water.
2) Require, and enforce the requirement, that timers must be used when connecting to VHA-supplied water sources in both common areas and community gardens.
See additional information, select Documents in left menu, go to the Water Conservation section

Common Area Water - 2 days a week Starts Sept 20, 2021
Dear Homeowners & Residents,
During this extreme drought and in effort to achieve a 15% reduction in Common Area water use, the board would like to try turning off common area water except during the periods:
Turn on Monday 6 pm - 9 am Tuesday
And Thursday 6 pm - 9 am Friday
This will be an efficient way to avoid daytime use which is very wasteful and allow us to experiment with having just two days a week to water.
VHA Board of Directors
Claire, Jen, Josh, Sue & Yoni
Community Center is avail to rent 7 days a week. See Reservations in the left menu to see when the Community Center or other VHA amenities are available. Information about the different locations is found under Amenities in the left menu.

Village In Action
As many of you know, there have been a number of attempts over the years to inspire our community to work more collaboratively. It may have taken however, the insidious coronavirus pandemic to move us into gear. The hope and vision of Village In Action (a group of Village Homes residents), has always been to unite our values-neighbors of community connection with our loving compassion to help one another stay in their homes for as long as they wish to, and are able. In these times, our Village’s motto “Live-In-Peace,” takes on special meaning.
Shortly, Village In Action will introduce a project we’re calling Village Homes Match. Its purpose is to pair seniors and others at risk during this time of sheltering-in-place with healthy volunteers. These volunteers can help with such things as picking up groceries, prescriptions and meals; going for socially-distant walks; etc. They would also check in every couple of days to see if their “match” needs anything else.
Village Homes Match will allow many of us the great relief of not having to go it alone. As a Village, as neighbors, we can offer so much help to one another, benefiting us all.
Village In Action has produced a website - www.villagehomesaction.com - allowing volunteer-neighbors sign up to help, and people at risk to request assistance.
There will also be flyers posted in kiosks.
Take care everyone!
The Village In Action team, Renee Dryfoos, Steve Ekstrom, Gregory Guss, Scarlet Huber, Denise Peach and Do Tromp
