A few folks have spotted a cougar hanging around recently. I saw a cougar in the Ranch in December and there have been other reports recently. Be careful, especially with kids around dawn and dusk.
The 2017 Annual meeting notes are ready for homeowner review. Email any feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sign off on these notes happens at the 2018 annual meeting.
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.

“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).”
The CVHA 2017 Annual Meeting will be held January 21st, 7pm at the Greenwater Community Center. All homeowners are welcome.
The following information was posted by Paul Sowers, Greenwater Fire Chief:
“To all of you who own homes in Greenwater or Crystal Mountain:
The WSRB (Washington Survey and Ratings Bureau) has re assessed both fire districts. As a result, Greenwater’s fire protection class has risen from an eight to a six, and Crystal Mountain’s rating has risen from a ten to a seven. This is a result of improved staffing, training, and equipment, as well as improvements in the water supply in the Crystal Villages. You might let your insurance company know this, and ask if it lowers your rate.
Thanks to the members of both departments, whose hard work and dedication are a big part of this result.”
One CV homeowner said that their homeowner’s coverage decreased by over $400. It may be worth checking with your insurance agent to see if your rates will change.
