Phase 2 is now complete. We have started Phase 3 in Neighborhood 14, and have finished portions of Neighborhood 24 and 33. We will continue through the remaining neighborhoods tentatively as follows:

25, 26, 15, 34, 16, 22, 23, 28, 30, 31, and 32.

As a reminder, we are rotating where we start our maintenance program every year. Those neighborhoods that were at the end of the program this year will be at the beginning next year. This is better for the landscape, is fair to all the residents.

We hope to have all mowing completed by the end of August, almost 6 weeks ahead of when we finished last year. The second pass will most likely begin at the end of September, or early October.

The line trimming crew is no more than a week behind, and usually occurs on Fridays.

My apologies for the lack of an update last week. We had a substantial waterline break underneath Sun City Blvd that demanded my attention. We are currently in the vicinity of NH 5 and working the areas around the LHGC fairways for Holes 10, 11, 12, 13 and 18. From there we will move to neighborhoods 4, 7, 13, 27, and 38. I am hoping to have these remaining neighborhoods in Phase 2 mowed by August 7th, at which point we will begin Phase 3 in neighborhood 33.

The line trimming crew has made great progress catching up with the mowers and are no more than a week behind.

150708 L3 Update

The Phase 2 mowing is currently in Neighborhood 10 and are working their way along the inbound side of Del Webb toward Berry Creek, picking up neighborhoods 9 and 35. On the north side of the creek we will begin in NH2 and progress toward through neighborhoods 3, 5, 6, 4, 7, 1, 13, 27, and 38.

The line trimming crew is nearly complete with Phase 1 and only have neighborhoods 40, 41, 42, 44, 45, 21, 19, 29, 20, 18, and 17 to finish. We expect them to be through with Phase 1 and into Phase 2 by end of the day Friday July 10th.

The Native Area Maintenance began on Monday, June 1st. We’ve divided the property into 3 sections, or phases, that are numbered in the order which we will proceed.







 








We have completed mowing in the following neighborhoods:
50, 51, 52, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59
















We will proceed to:
47, 62, 46, 44, 42, 43, 40, 41

We are far enough ahead with Mowing Team that we will be starting the Line Trimming Team on Friday June 12th. They will follow the same path as the mowers, and we expect them to be close to caught up by the end of the day.

















Mowing the native areas is done to reduce the risk of wild fire spreading into the neighborhoods. Because of our limited time to complete the native area mowing, we cannot always wait until all the wildflowers have stopped blooming. For this reason we rotate where we start our mowing each year to insure the best chances for wild flower proliferation throughout the campus.
