Just a reminder

Thinking about adding a storage shed? How about a paved walkway in your rear yard? Maybe even some new landscape plants and boulders? Did you know that per the CC&R’s any modification, addition, or visible change (except the repaint of your home with preapproved colors) to a site or building exterior of a residential property requires written approval from the Design Review Committee? The process to submit is fairly simple: just fill out the Architectural Submittal Form (located online), include a plat map, plans and photos of the proposed work and submit to Taylor Gorman, Community Standards Administrator either via email at tgorman@aamaz.com or drop off at the McDowell Center. Taylor will receive the applica­tions and put them on the agenda for the upcoming DRC meeting for review and consider of approval. Feel free to contact Taylor with any questions regarding the Architectural Approval Process.

Please keep in mind of the bulk trash pick up dates. Bulk trash may only be placed out on your property 9 days before the next regularly scheduled pick up and any remaining landscape debris must be cleaned up after the trash has been removed. Bulk trash may NOT be placed in the common areas so please pay attention to property ownership when placing bulk trash out. The bulk trash days are  February 1st, February 29th, March 28th, April 25th, May 23rd, June 20th, July 25th, August 22nd, September 26th, October 24th, November 28th, and December 26th 2017. City of Scottsdale Solid Waste is located at 9191 E San Salvador Dr Scottsdale, AZ 85258 and can be reach at (480)312-5600 for any question.

It has been brought to the Associations attention over the past few weeks that private trash cans are being used to dump landscape debris and trash from other residents and/or their contractors. Please use your own trash can for waste materials and remind your contractors to dispose of the trash/landscape debris responsibly.

As always we appreciate your efforts to keep the community beautiful.

How to Debloat Using Yoga
Whether you're simply bloated and gassy after a large meal or have a chronic condition that causes it, bloating can be uncomfortable or even embarrassing. While medications can help ease the symptoms, it also is possible to debloat using yoga. Yoga breathing and poses can help relax your nervous system, alleviate gas, and stimulate your abdominal organs to help improve your digestion and make bloating less uncomfortable and less likely to happen in the future.
