Your Community – Landscape Treatment Map

The Board of Directors would like to make all Woodbury residents aware of the pesticide use and the locations within the community by our landscape company, Park West. The new map illustrates the areas that are pesticide free and that organic products are used when needed. The organic fertilizer will be applied four times throughout the year. These areas are identified in green. Areas that are color coded pink will only have pesticides used as needed and notifications will be posted on the website and bulletin board in advance of any localized, landscape treatment. The Board is conscientious of the community concerns and have made a level of commitment to enhance the level of service and products used at no current increase to homeowners. For questions, please contact the General Manager, Karen Thompson at (949) 451-1654.

Cox Communications Network Update

   Cox Communications will be updating our network in the Woodbury community to provide residents access to faster speeds, enhanced product capabilities and more network reliability in the future.

Cox is looking to start this work at the earliest, in the next couple of weeks.

Cox will notify residents of the upcoming work by mailing the attached construction notification postcard (Attachment #1) and placing the attached door hanger (Attachment #2)  on ALL residence doors about 48 hours prior to construction activity beginning.

Here is a description of the work that will be taking place (which occurs within the public utility easement):

  • Laying additional conduit and/or repairing conduit – if needed
  • Pulling micro duct through conduit
  • Replacing current pedestals with a new pedestal/placing flush mount vaults
  • Fiber blowing/jetting through micro duct (utilizing Cox’s existing conduit infrastructure)

During the second half of 2018, Cox will need to access the community again to complete the migration to our new infrastructure. During this activity, Cox customers will experience a multi-hour service disruption. As we get closer to this date, we will be sure to communicate with the community ahead of time and will share the communications that Cox customers will receive to notify them of this disruption.

NX Utilities, the contractor for Cox Communications, is expected to begin work within the next week to update our network. Door hangers will be placed on ALL residents doors about 48 hours prior to work beginning in an area and the attached sandwich boards will be placed in the areas where crews will be working every morning and picked up at the end of each work day.

Resort Pool Upcoming Closure

The Resort Pool will be closing this September 2018 for a plaster, tile, and coping project. Estimated completion time is 3 months. We will keep the website updated with any information!

The Lagoon and Competition pool will be heated during that time for any swimmers that would like to make use of those pools. Any questions or concerns, please contact the General Manager, Karen Thompson, at (949) 451-1654 or kthompson@keystonepacific.com.

MAIL THEFT AND HOW WE CAN PROTECT OURSELVES

Unfortunately mail and package theft has become an issue in the Orange County area, especially in nicer areas such as Woodbury.  Management works closely with Irvine PD in monitoring the neighborhood, but it only takes a brief moment for a thief to grab a package from a door step or take someone’s mail, making it a difficult matter to regulate.  In an effort to keep our residents informed we are offering the following suggestions, provided by the Irvine Police Department, in response to recent mail thefts.

  • Always deposit your mail inside your local post office, or hand it to your letter carrier.
  • Have your local post office hold your mail while you're on vacation, or absent from your home for a long period of time.
  • If you don't receive a check or other valuable mail you're expecting, contact the issuing agency immediately.
  • If a package is being delivered without a signature required, make sure someone will be home to receive the package or have packages delivered to a secure P.O. Box location. 

If you observe what appears to be a theft in progress immediately call Irvine PD dispatch at (949) 724-7200.

Coyote Sightings in Woodbury!

Please visit: http://www.cityofirvine.org/ipd/divisions/animalservices/coyotebulletin.asp to learn more about Coyotes.

Unfortunately Coyotes have become more popular amongst suburb areas, as well as parks and beaches. Please read some important facts to keep your family and pets safe.

Although Coyotes exhibit bold behavior in front of people, the chance of a human attack is quiet low. However; there are steps we can take to protect ourselves.

DO NOT feed coyotes. They will associate food with humans and that will significantly increase the likely hood of them attacking.

DO NOT let your pets roam free. Although it is rare for a human attack, it is quite commons for coyotes to attack pets! Especially cats and small dogs. Always keep an eye on your pets and make sure they are on leashes. THE BEST WAY TO PROTECT YOUR PET IS TO NOT LET THEM ROAM FREE.

You can attempt to frighten away coyotes by making loud noises (shouting, air horn, or banging pots and pans) and acting aggressively (e.g., waving your arms, throwing sticks, spraying with a garden hose). Homeowners should realize that if they live near suitable habitat, fencing may be the only method to completely eliminate coyotes from travelling near homes.
