To help avoid becoming a victim of theft and protect the common area from potential vandalism, we have listed a few helpful safety tips:

  • Secure all windows and doors no matter how long you will be gone
  • Shut garage doors and when possible park cars inside the garage
  • Take all personal property out of cars and ensure your vehicle is locked
  • Trim landscaping to allow visibility around your house and prevent hiding
  • Consider what can be seen through windows like gifts under a holiday tree, laptops, cameras or other valuables
  • Light houses inside and out using timers or sensors to give the appearance that someone is home
  • Lock-up valuables like laptops and jewelry
  • Have packages delivered to an occupied house or business, or pick them up when out of town
  • Tell trusted neighbors you will be out of town so they can watch your house
  • If you are the last person in the pool area, please lock the dead bolts at the pool restrooms
  • Report abandoned vehicles to management

If you witness any suspicious behavior or notice someone that doesn’t belong at our community, please report it immediately to the County Sheriff’s Department at 619-441-4564 or dial 911 in case of an emergency.

Got Trash?   5 Quick Tips for Your Free Bulky Item Pickup

  Did you know that Waste Management (WM) will remove bulky items for you for free?  Here are 5 quick tips for making it happen.

, WM will perform one bulky pickup per year of at most 3 items – absolutely free!  Subsequent pickups currently cost $50 for the first item and $20 for additional items, up to a maximum of 6 items per pickup.  Prepayment is required.

Note that these terms are DIFFERENT from the regular residential terms listed on the WM website, because we're an HOA.

, make sure that WM will take your items, and perform any special handling required.  Check out this WM Bulky Pickups flier for details.

, contact WM at least 48 business hours in advance – to make sure they can schedule your bulky pickup when you want it – and give them our bulky item account number, 232-56712.

, bulky pickup requests can be made via WM's website form.  Typically you'll receive three emails, with the final email confirming when your driver will be there.  You'll want to make sure you respond to the emails as requested, and wait to put out your items until you get that final confirmation email.

and finally, requests can also be made by calling (619) 596-5100 and navigating the WM phone menu.  Whereas WM's website form is definitely more convenient, contacting WM by phone is recommended if you want your pickup sooner.

So the next time you're wondering what to do with that bulky item, don't forget WM's free bulky pickups!

Join Us for Christmas Caroling on Sunday, Dec. 10th

  Join us for an evening of Family Christmas Caroling on Sunday, Dec. 10th from 6:00-7:30 PM.  Caroling will commence at the Crowley's driveway at 1729 The Woods Drive.  Wear an Ugly Christmas Sweater if you are so inclined!

In year’s past, the carolers have knocked on doors and sang on the porch.  Problem with that is that we don’t get to very many homes.

This year, we’re going to try something new.  We’re going to slowly walk up and down the streets singing our songs of holiday cheer.

Don’t worry if you don’t know the words, we’ll provide written sheets with lyrics.  Just bring a flashlight so you can see the paper!

Board Releases Update on Roads Progress

  The Avocado Estates Board of Directors has issued a news bulletin with another update on the progress of our roads.

After meeting with three local engineers, our AD Magellan (ADM) project manager ultimately recommended Engineering Design Group (EDG), the same firm that successfully designed the HOA pond area repairs caused by the Helix Water meter failure.

By scaling down the traffic index used in the original Krazan scope of work to a value more appropriate for a small community of 101 homes, EDG expects to see a much lower project cost on a revised scope of work.

As a result the Board has approved EDG to develop a new scope of work, and for ADM to continue managing the process.

The goal is for EDG to develop a new, thorough scope of work and secure bids by mid-September 2017, after which time a community meeting will be held to discuss all of the funding and construction options, to include a possible phasing option.

Board Releases Bulletin on Roads Progress

  The Avocado Estates Board of Directors has released a news bulletin containing an update on the progress concerning our roads.

Although it's very early in the process, the good news thus far is that when our new AD Magellan (ADM) project manager met with the principal at Burkett and Wong Engineering (BWE), they indicated that the scope of work by Krazan may have been over-designed.  As such, ADM will work with other local engineers to obtain a revised scope/recommendation.
