The Residential Board has decided to have board meetings every other month; therefore this month’s meeting has been cancelled. The next Residential Board meeting will be held on Thursday, June 20, 2013 at 6:30pm located at the Valley Ranch Association Office.
The tree removal project is almost finished. Over this period, the office has received calls from both sides of the fence on this issue. Staff assures everyone that the trees removed were determined by the experts at Texas A&M Agrilife as dead, dying, diseased beyond reasonable care, reaching the end of their lifespan or damaging association or owner property. Trees not meeting this criteria are not being removed. To the owners calling the office asking for additional trees to be removed in order to improve your view of the canal, we cannot consider this without the tree meeting one of those criteria. It is important to remind owners that this is part of an overall plan to address water and landscaping issues as laid out by a homeowner committee and approved by the Master Board of Directors. Valley Ranch has a very good board of directors taking active steps to get ahead of what could be a very expensive problem in the future. Water shortages will continue and the association is actively pursuing solutions.

Mosquito Preparedness – Residents are reminded to prepare for mosquito season this summer. To defend against the West Nile virus, remember to follow the “Four Ds.” They are:
- Dusk/Dawn – the times of day to stay indoors.
- Dress – wear long sleeves and long pants when outdoors during these times.
- DEET – an ingredient to look for when purchasing and using insect repellent.
- Drain – minimize outside standing water so it does not become a mosquito breeding site.
To report vector control issues, call (972) 721-3755.
