Tell your friends!

There is still time to register as a vendor at our well-attended Oktoberfest. Businesses, artists, community groups, and crafts vendors of all kinds are encouraged to join in the fun and display their wares. 
The Augusta Ranch Oktoberfest is a family-friendly, free-admission community event that is open to the public. This event will feature live entertainment, face painting, photo booth, stein hold competitions, beer gardens, German-style food, and more. Here is a beautiful opportunity for vendors to share their specialties within an upscale community of over 2200 homes.
There are no fees involved (only a refundable deposit), and the benefits include gaining visibility for neighborhood commerce and the potential of expanding customer bases. Vendors will each receive a page on the HOA events website to advertise goods and services, which will stay in place for an entire year. We look forward to working together to make Augusta Ranch Oktoberfest a happy, fun-filled experience for all. Please tell your friends!

Security Reminders
If you need Security, call them directly at 480-518-3399.

- 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!


Augusta Ranch Security Patrol Team: 480-518-3399

Fall Home Improvements
As the milder weather is upon us, you may be thinking about improving the look of your home and are wondering about gaining approval from your HOA Architectural Committee. What is the process, and how difficult is it?

To be reviewed at the next committee meeting, you'll need to submit your request before 5:00 PM on the second Wednesday of that month. Requests received after that will be reviewed the following month.

Visit the Request Manager on the Augusta Ranch website to gather the necessary information and forms. Your friendly HOA board members are here to help, so feel free to send us your questions! As long as your desired updates fit within the Architectural Guidelines, you'll find gaining approval quick and straightforward.

Fresh Paint for Your Home

If your home needs paint or you would like to change the color, be sure first to submit an architectural application. There are lots of beautiful, approved color choices on the Dunn Edwards website.

Landscape Enhancements
Each front yard is required to have at least six 5-gallon shrubs and two 15-gallon trees (or one tree and one tree substitute, such as a cactus, ocotillo, bird of paradise, or similar plant that is 3 feet or higher in height).

These are minimum requirements, so of course, you may have more or bigger plants. As long as your plant choices do not interfere with the neighbors, the gravel is an approved color, and your yard is well-maintained, you are free to design the garden of your dreams! For any significant changes, be sure to send in a request for approval.

House Numbers
It is a legal requirement that all homes have house numbers that are easy to read from the street. House numbers are there to provide for your safety as well as for the convenience of others.

If you would like to keep your original address placard, please keep it painted the same colors as it was initially.
Recently, the HOA Board approved alternate styles for house numbers, so you now have more choices. For any of these changes, you will need to submit an architectural application. Just send us an image and description (size and materials) of what you want, and if it fits within the guidelines, you'll easily gain approval.
Together We Can Stop Vandalism
We love living in Augusta Ranch, a beautiful, well-maintained, safe, and family-focused community. However, a small number of residents are intent on devaluing and disrespecting our homes and neighborhood. Please help!

Over this last year, vandals have caused significant destruction to our community. The most recent issues involve our community playground equipment, trees, irrigation clocks, and mailboxes.

Such damage is extremely costly to repair and thus affects the benefits quarterly payments can provide. We need to work together to keep costs manageable.

While our Security Patrol Team is consistently watching out for our residences, they cannot be everywhere at once. We need the support of all caring residents to help protect our most valuable material assets. Please, if you notice suspicious activity, report it immediately to our Security Patrol Team. If possible, take photos of the perpetrators and any identifying clues. Be assured that all such reports will be held in confidence.

To the vandals and thieves, we are prosecuting to the fullest extent permissible by law. You should be ashamed of yourselves for committing any crime, let alone against your neighbors!
Please Scoop the Poop
Let's All Be Good Pet Neighbors!

Keep Our Community Pet Waste-Free!
In Augusta Ranch, pets are considered an integral part of many families. If you own a pet, you likely know the importance of having rules and being considerate of others. Occasionally, however, some dog owners need a reminder.

Pet waste receptacles and free baggies have been provided for your use in the common areas. The disposal stations are located at strategic places throughout the neighborhood.

While walking your dog in our neighborhood, please be considerate and prevent your pooch from pooping in someone's yard. Make sure to always carry a couple of clean-up bags with you. There is no excuse for thoughtlessness. Let's be good pet neighbors!
Vehicles on Street at Night
The idea behind the Augusta Ranch parking regulations is to protect your neighborhood while ensuring the safe usage of private property.

HOA members 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. Doing so will reduce confusion over where you can park and avoid any unnecessary violation notices.
HOA Board Meeting
Homeowners are welcome to attend.

Monday, October 18th, 6:30 PM
Mesa Police Substation
2430 S. Ellsworth, Mesa, AZ 85209.

We appreciate each of you and are happy to serve a community that cares and is involved!
