Pet waste is a problem in our common areas when pet owners do not clean up after their pets. Not only is it violating the PCVA covenants to leave your pet’s waste laying in the common areas, the poop is a nuisance and can carry viruses and bacteria that are harmful to humans and animals. In addition to the risk of diseases, the organic matter and nutrients in pet waste make the water in our creeks and streams dirty. Learn more HERE
When it's forecast to be windy, please make sure items in your yard aren't blown all over the neighborhood. Tie down anything that is loose or store it inside. Secure the lids to your garbage and recycling containers. Besides losing items that make a mess of the neighborhood, your airborne items can cause damage as they bounce along and strike other times (car sides and windows, home windows, etc.).
