Hancock Announced Herbicide Application Near Village

9/13/2016 Update

Randy Roeh from Hancock Forest Management provided some additional details about the proposed spraying. Due to concerns raised by Crystal Village homeowners, Hancock has reconsidered plans to use herbicides on Gold Hill West G and Gold Hill West A units.  See Randy’s letter below for more details.




Hancock gave CVHA notice of planned herbicide application near our community to happen sometime between Sept 5 2016 – Oct 14 2016.

See links below for more details from Hancock.

Links to data sheets on the herbicides are below.

Randy from Hancock wrote that “these herbicides are the least toxic (signal word Caution or Warning) and that we apply them at  significantly lower rates than allowed by the label for each chemical.

Please inform your family and guests of the burn ban.

The board of directors will be placing signs at the villages this weekend.


CVHA Common Area Map

Crystal Village has some nice common area for homeowners and guests to enjoy. See a map of the common area as well as trails and access points below.
