Happy New Year
Augusta Ranch Residents!

HOA Board Members and Kamin Havens, Community Manager
Wishing you health and happiness in 2022!
It’s hard to believe how quickly 2021 has come to an end. Thanks to your support, the Augusta Ranch community had another successful year!
We hope that you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday season and were able to spend time with your friends and family.
Throughout 2021, one of our main goals was a return to normalcy as we continued to navigate through the pandemic. With the help of our involved residents and hardworking employees, we were able to maintain a high level of service. We were indeed blessed to offer many safe and engaging events and complete much-needed projects.
2022 is looking to be even better! We remain committed to providing programs that encourage our residents to feel engaged and enthused. We will continue reinvesting your dues back into the community, enhancing your amenities, and hosting entertaining events. Our combined efforts aim to ensure an ongoing sense of pride in your neighborhood.
On behalf of the HOA Board members, Kamin, our Community Manager, and the Augusta Ranch staff, we send our sincere thanks for your input throughout the year. It takes everyone working together for a community to prosper. Your welcome involvement, along with your comments, concerns, and kind words at various points, helps to make Augusta Ranch one of the best places to live in Arizona!
At the birth of this new year, we hope you will take a moment to cherish your life and loved ones. We are all blessed to have survived and persevered during the last couple of years. As we learn to recognize the simplest of blessings and shift our mindset towards gratitude, we are more able to embrace the goodness once taken for granted. 
Thank you again for placing your faith in us. We look forward to working with you and seeing what the coming year might bring for the Augusta Ranch community.

When to Remove
Holiday Decorations on Homes
WOW! Thank you to the many Augusta Ranch residents for your beautifully decorated homes. How wonderful it is to live in a community filled with such enthusiasm. From our hearts, we appreciate you. Well done!
As a friendly reminder, you should remove holiday displays no later than January 25th (thirty days after Christmas). Many HOAs require the removal of outside decorations 15 days after the holiday, so all of us at Augusta Ranch enjoy the spirit longer than most. For questions or approval of any deviation from the rule, please reach out to our Community Manager. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
Before you take down your holiday decorations, we encourage you to snap a photo and send it to the Newsletter team via the Events website. We would love to share your displays!

What About Political Signs
in Augusta Ranch
Are they allowed?
In harmony with A.R.S. § 33-1808, below are the Augusta Ranch HOA rules regarding political signs and flags.

There are certain times involving elections when you may display your favorite candidates on your property for all the world to see! And then there are times when doing so is not allowed.

You may NOT display outdoor or visible indoor political signs or flags on your property as follows:

  • Earlier than seventy-one days before the day of a primary election; 

  • Later than fifteen days after the primary election for a candidate in a primary election who does not advance to the general election;

  • Later than fifteen days after the day of the general election.

At all other times, no political signs or flags may be displayed, and anyone doing so may be subject to a fine. The maximum aggregate dimensions of all political signs on your property may not exceed nine square feet. And, of course, you may not remove your neighbors' signs without their permission, even if you wholeheartedly disagree with them.

Thank you for keeping Augusta Ranch a safe and happy place to live!

Learn the Rules of Roundabouts
Augusta Ranch has several roundabouts throughout the community. They exist to control traffic speed and provide safe exchanges at intersections. Traffic exiting the roundabout comes from one direction instead of three, simplifying the pedestrian's visual environment.

The primary rule is that traffic approaching a roundabout from any direction MUST yield to traffic already traveling within the circle. All roundabouts are one-way and flow in a counterclockwise direction, i.e., to the right. Roundabouts allow U-turns within the normal flow of traffic.
Official Rules of Roundabouts:
Approach: Reduce speed and prepare to stop.
Yield: To any pedestrians in your path, they always have the right-of-way.
Enter: Look left and yield to vehicles already in the roundabout.
Proceed: Continue through the roundabout until reaching the desired street. Avoid stopping in the roundabout.
Exit: Signal, then exit the roundabout to your right.
Approach: At the designated pedestrian crosswalk, look left.
Cross: Cross in the refuge island. Look right.
Finish crossing to the opposite sidewalk.
If you are riding your bicycle through a roundabout, you must follow the same rules as a motor vehicle. If you are walking your bike through a roundabout, you must follow the same rules as a pedestrian.
Security Reminders
If you need Security, call them directly at 480-518-3399.

Your Security Patrol Team
Here When You Need Them!
Security will NOT respond to text messages,
as they cannot authenticate the caller.

Augusta Ranch Security Patrol Team consists of three full-time armed guards that are licensed by the Arizona Department of Public Safety. The guards patrol our community approximately 18 hours per day, seven days a week, continuously changing schedules. They work through Valley Protective Services, Inc., and have a close working relationship with the Mesa Police Department, which may rely on our guards to assist when needed.

When is it appropriate to call Security? 
Possible reasons to call Security might include parking violations, solicitors, trespassing, open garage door, criminal damage, animal control, lost/found property, and any suspicious activity, persons, or vehicles. For neighborhood non-emergencies, we're here to help!

Remove Vehicles From Street at Night
The idea behind the Augusta Ranch parking regulations is to protect our neighborhood while ensuring the safe usage of private property.

Residents are encouraged to review the official Augusta Ranch Parking Policy to make certain they understand the rules relating to when and where parking is allowed, citations, notices, and fines.

Overnight Parking Permits

On occasion, there may arise a temporary need to park on the street overnight, in which case you are welcome to request an Overnight Parking Permit.
