Neighbors Helping Neighbors
The Quail Grove HOA has a Neighborhood Police Officer assigned to work with residents within the community with various matters. One important group effort is the Code Blue Volunteer program: Interested residents participate in an 8-hour training program and utilize those learned skills to help keep a neighborly watch in the community. You learn how to work with the NPO and share information. There is no risk to you. It’s simply a neighborly program.
Anyone interested in this highly popular program may contact the Quail Grove NPO: Billy Ward at email@example.com
Update to Community Documents
This is a notification to each homeowner in the Quail Grove HOA that the following documents have been filed and recorded in Tarrant County Texas. Due to the transition of the HOA from developer control to homeowner control, the Special Warranty Deed and the Assignment and Release of all common areas are now the property of the HOA. In addition, the Board of Directors has filed the Open Board of Directors Meeting Member Attendance Procedures document.
These documents are also found on the HOA’s website: www.quailgrovehoa.com/documents.aspx
- According to national data, the national and local Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are working with local municipalities to combat the West Nile Virus with spraying operations and ongoing efforts.
- Per info on the City of Fort Worth web site, the City decided Tuesday evening to conduct more ground spraying, including sections of the north side, east of I-35W. The next round will be in the 76137 zip code, limited to streets around Arcadia Trail Park, Park Place Park, Mesa Verde Park and Arcadia Trail Park North. This spraying will also use off-road vehicles to spray in parks and greenbelts.
- Earlier spraying in the 76137 zip code was found to have positive results.
- Spraying will take place between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights but could be delayed a day if there is bad weather.
- Samples are gathered prior to spraying areas, and then additional samples are gathered post-spraying to determine success.
Tips from Landscape Vendor
- Only female mosquitoes bite (to assist in laying eggs). [which is why the city collects females to conduct testing]
- Mosquitoes lay eggs in all types of water: water pails, lakes, ponds, anything that holds water. In lakes and ponds, natural predators handle these nasty vampires!
- The worst offender in assisting mosquito repopulation is HUMANS! Stagnant plastic pools, buckets, jars, etc. Most parasites can be controlled through a clean environment.
Combating the West Nile Virus is not a HOA responsibility, but that of each City/Municipality. However, each homeowner has a responsibility to oversee their property and ensure kiddie pools are drained after each use, any rain barrel or water bucket is covered, etc. Commit to doing what is necessary so no standing water exists on the property.
Vendors do not spray for West Nile due to liability. Such efforts fall within the spectrum of City operations and the CDC.
The use of over-the-counter mosquito repellant can be hugely successful.
