Resurfacing Community Pool 
Six Week Timeline
Resurfacing occurs when the pool's finish is failing, and as you can see here, KYA is chipping out the damage to apply the new finish to the pool's surface. The same SEMCO brand product used on the pool decking is planned for the interior, providing a renewed solid surface that will correct any pitting and cracking, with the benefit of no plaster removal, less down-time, and an extended life of 15-20+/- years. LED lighting upgrade has also begun for the interior of the pool! KYA Group is the contractor completing this work.

Community Pool will reopen after the resurfacing work is complete, AND the State has advanced to Stage 3, AND we have our lifeguards fully onboarded with additional health and safety protocols in place. We tentatively have swim lessons planned pending State & local guidelines. If we are able to provide lessons, we will have minimized participant numbers, as well as those previously mentioned health and safety protocols in place.
Kalithea Restroom Coming Soon!
(Kal-i-thay-a) Restroom gets "dropped" this week
The trench has been completed at Kalithea Park, and you may notice that the shrubs were removed to complete this work. Rest assured, we will have that area looking beautiful soon! Very exciting news this week is that the restroom building will be delivered on-site, one of the final stages before completion.

Chicks in EDH?
Check your CC&Rs Before you Invest
Based on several calls asking if residents can own chickens, the Registration Office has completed a thorough review of 58 sets of CC&Rs. Most all of them do not allow residents to raise poultry, so before you invest, we recommend checking your CC&Rs here.  

EDH Sports Leaders Tour Bass Lake Regional Park
Envisioning the Sports Fields Together

Last month, sports group leaders toured Bass Lake Regional Park to see where the fields will be located, and discuss possible needs like tall netting for Lacrosse, diamond requirements for EDH Little League, and field size for EDH Soccer Club. As we continue to look to the future, we want to make sure we're making this park a gem for everyone!

Keep a Safe Distance in Parks and on the NYC Trail
Thank you for practicing social distancing!

Valley View Park 2
Check out the Final Design!

Valley View Park 2 will be located south of Valley View Charter Montessori on Blackstone Parkway. Take a look at the final design above to see where the two play structures, picnic pavilion, and pedestrian bridge will be located. The construction drawings are about 90% complete. Next steps will be finalizing the plans, then preparing requests for proposals for construction.

Rattlesnake 101
Have you encountered a rattlesnake?
Rattlesnakes are widespread in California and are found in a variety of habitats throughout the state from coastal to desert. They may also turn up around homes and yards in brushy areas and under wood piles. Generally not aggressive, rattlesnakes will likely retreat if given room or not deliberately provoked or threatened. Most bites occur between the months of April and October when snakes and humans are most active outdoors, but there are precautions that can and should be taken to lessen the chances of being bitten.
  • Be alert. Like all reptiles, rattlesnakes are sensitive to the ambient temperature and will adjust their behavior accordingly.
  • Wear sturdy boots and loose-fitting long pants. 
  • When hiking, stick to well-used trails. Avoid tall grass, weeds and heavy underbrush where snakes may hide during the day.
  • Never hike alone. Always have someone with you who can assist in an emergency.
  • Do not handle a freshly killed snake, as it can still inject venom.
  • Teach children early to respect snakes and to leave them alone.
  • Leash your dog when hiking in snake country. 
Though uncommon, rattlesnake bites do occur, so have a plan in place for responding to any situation. In the event of a bite:
  • Stay calm but act quickly.
  • Remove watches, rings, etc., which may constrict swelling.
  • Transport the victim to the nearest medical facility.
  • For more first aid information, please call the California Poison Control System at (800) 222-1222. 
What you should NOT do after a rattlesnake bite
  • DON'T apply a tourniquet.
  • DON'T pack the bite area in ice.
  • DON'T cut the wound with a knife or razor.
  • DON'T use your mouth to suck out the venom.
  • DON'T let the victim drink alcohol.
