    Home Improvement Projects

    With the cooler temperatures of fall many of us are energized to do home improvement projects. Thank you to all the residents who joined us

    for our most recent Home Improvement Expo in October. At this years event we were joined by more than 20 local contractors who assist with landscaping improvements, pool upgrades, interior remodeling and painting. A special thank you for all the door prize contributions from our exhibitors. Nearly everyone who came went home with a prize, and two lucky owners took home new televisions! The money booth was especially popular, and four lucky individuals who completed the Expo Bingo got a 30 second chance to get rich. The booth was especially popular with our little people, but they were more interested in the monopoly money. All leftover money not claimed in the money booth was donated to the local charity Billys Place an organization offering support for grieving children and families. For more information check For those of you who couldnt join us, all exhibiting vendors are offering special discounted pricing for Vistancia residents. If you have been thinking about giving your home a boost for the holiday season, now is a great time to paint. Contact us at the office for a list of exhibiting paint

    contractors and the special Vistancia only pricing. Fall is also an excellent time to replace missing landscape items. The cooler temperatures cause the plants to save their energy for a burst of growth in the spring. In conjunction with this years Garage Sale and Craft Fair, Caretaker Landscape will be on site with dozens of beautiful plants for sale. How convenient right here in your own neighborhood.

    We wish you a safe and Happy Thanksgiving with your family, and hope to see you at all of our great events this month.

    and confidence.


    Summer is over, fall is in full swing and soon winter will be upon us. With winter comes the holidays, as you have probably have noticed from all the holiday decorations marketed at the stores since

    September. Residents are encouraged to celebrate and decorate! There are some restrictions to prevent any disturbances either by excessive light, sound or spectator traffic. Sorry Mr. Clark W. Griswold but you will not be able to put up your 250 strands of light... 100 individual bulbs per strand for a grand total of 25,000 imported Italian twinkle lights. (National Lampoons Christmas Vacation)

    Here is what the CC&Rs say about Holiday Decorations:Owners may display holiday decorations which are visible from neighboring property, only if the decorations are of the kinds normally displayed in single family residential neighborhoods, are of reasonable size and scope and do not disturb other owners and residents by excessive light or sound emission or by causing an unreasonable amount of spectator traffic. Holiday decorations may be displayed in season only from November 1 to January 31, during other times of the year, from one week before to one week after any nationally recognized holiday. (Article IV, Section 4.2, sub-section CC. Holiday Decorations)

    Please have fun and be safe on your roofs.
