Hwy 410 Robbery

In case you didn’t see this in the news, there was a gun point robbery on Hwy 410, 2 weeks ago. I didn’t seem to have a lot of news-worthiness.

Pierce County Firewise Program presentation

On Friday, April 21st at 6 p.m. at the Greenwater Community Center, the Pierce County Conservation District spokesman will explain the Firewise Program to the community.  Smokey Bear will be present and snacks will be provided. There will also be a showing of the film ‘Megafires’.

Pierce County, through the Firewise Program, is offering to perform a free wildfire audit of your home to assess wildfire risk and suggest measures you can take to mitigate those risks. They are also offering a chipper service (with operators) to homeowners. If you would like to take advantage of this services, you can sign up at the April 21st presentation or at www.piercecd.org

In May and June of 2017, CVHA will be partnering with Pierce County Conservation District Firewise and Habitat Improvement program.  CVHA priority will be the removal of the Scotch Broom in the Commons Area between CV1 and CV2.  Plans call for volunteers from Crystal Village and a Pierce County volunteer group(s) to remove the Scotch Broom.  Since the goal is the long term removal of the Scotch Broom, an ecological approved herbicide may be applied by Pierce County. Since Pierce County is providing the spraying service, we can be assured that all rules and regulations pertaining to spraying in our Commons Area will be followed. The final stage of the project will be plantings of native vegetation by Pierce County in the common area.

The Board of Directors has approved Jan Kobak to coordinate the Common Area project for CVHA.  She will keep the Board informed as the project timeline develops and let the Board know if any approval or action is needed for any portion of the project.  Once the final scope of the project is known the Board will conduct a review before we proceed with the Scotch Broom removal program.

If you have any questions, ideas or concerns you can comment to cvhapres@gmail.com

Updates will be posted on the Blog as to the project develops.

New Pierce County Code for short term rentals

In September 2016, Pierce County implemented new regulations for short term rentals. Short term rentals are defined as any property rental of less than 30 days. This was aimed primarily at properties being rented through AirBNB, VRBO, etc.

These regulations can be found in the Pierce County Code, Chapter 18A.37.040B

The CVHA Board believes that the best course of action with a homeowner who has an issue with another homeowner involving short term rentals, is to talk directly with that homeowner. They can then discuss their concerns and resolve the issue between themselves. As a final resort, homeowners can then contact Pierce County directly to lodge a complaint. CVHA has no authority to regulate any of these rentals but is willing to facilitate homeowners in order to resolve their differences.

Dr. Evan Wood

“It is with great sadness that we share the news that one our former, long time residents, Dr. Evan Woods, has passed away.

He and his family lived in the Crystal Village 2 neighborhood for well over 25 years. Dr. Woods practiced dentistry in Enumclaw for 35
years. He had many patients from Greenwater reclining in the chair during that time. He will be missed as greatly as he was loved and respected.

Crystal Village HOA would like to to extend our deepest condolences to the Woods family.

Memorial service will be 1:00 PM, Saturday, January 14, 2017 at Enumclaw Field House (Pete’s Pool).”
