PROJECT UPDATES

There's always something happening at Las Sendas — see the status of various projects the Association is working on around the community right here.
Fire Mitigation
Fire Mitigation
 
It takes all of us to do our part to reduce the risk of devastating wildfires from threatening our homes and our community. A home and a community that has clear defensible space are more likely to survive a wildfire, plus it keeps our firefighters on the ground safe when they are working to save your property.
 
The Association is currently planning fire mitigation for more enclaves in 2022 and work will begin in Q1. Below are the list of enclaves currently scheduled for 2022.
 
  • Legacy Hills - Done
  • Pinnacle Hills - Done
  • Stone Cliff - Done
  • Mountain Gate - In Progress
  • Granite Preserve - Q2
  • Echo Canyon - Q2
  • Whispering Ridge - Q2
As a general rule, the scope of work includes the following (This isn’t a science. It’s more of an art by trained professionals):
  • Clearing away vegetation within 5 feet of walls, with the exception of healthy trees and cacti with diameters over 4 inches. 
  • Trimming trees so that branches do not hang lower than about five feet from the ground.
  • Removing any “dead and down” material, meaning large broken branches, dead trees and shrubs, and fallen trees or branches.
  • Removal of invasive plant species.

City of Mesa
Sewer Manhole Access Project + Closed Trails
 
The City of Mesa Engineering department has informed us that a ten-foot-wide dirt utility access road will be built outside the western edge of our community, just north of Thomas Road and parallel to Power Road. Work will begin this month and last approximately three months. 
Talis Construction will be clearing some existing vegetation and constructing a stabilized dirt access road with drainage crossings to prohibit dust and erosion. This path will provide City utility crews access to existing utility holes for periodic cleaning and maintenance. Work will take place during daytime hours, and you may hear some related construction noise. 
 
During construction, the existing trail and access points from the neighborhood will be temporarily closed. Please do not attempt to walk, run or bike in this area until improvements are complete and barricades removed! Please adhere to this temporary closure for your safety.
 
If you have any questions or concerns about this project, please contact Curt Albright or Michele Arrollado with the City of Mesa Engineering Public Relations Department at 480-644-3800. You can also reach Talis Construction via their project hotline at 480-532-5588.

Post Tension Tennis Courts
Post Tension Tennis Courts
 
Post-tension tennis courts were installed on courts 3, 4, and 5 at the Sonoran Hills Tennis Club in 2021.  
 
Courts 1 and 2 at the Trailhead will be upgraded in 2022. Work will begin February 28 and we expect the courts to be closed for three months. While we realize this period coincides with the beautiful spring weather that is ideal for playing, that same weather is also the best time for the concrete to cure properly, which is important for the long-term condition of the courts. 
 
Court 6 at Sonoran Hills Tennis Club will be resealed in the summer of 2022.
 
Post-tension concrete courts will resist and prevent cracking, thanks to pre-stressed steel tendons below the surface. These upgraded courts will provide Las Sendas with a sturdy and durable playing surface that can withstand the rigors of consistent use.

Common Area Wall Painting
Common Area Wall Painting
 
After obtaining bids for the 2021 painting project, we learned that current prices are significantly higher than budgeted. Not only do these costs affect payments from the Association's reserve account, but they also affect homeowners directly, since residents are responsible for reimbursing the Association 50% of the cost to paint the wrought iron on their walls (where applicable). T Board approved Allstar Pro Painting to paint the common area walls for the following enclaves:
  • Black Rock
  • Legacy Hills
  • Mountain Gate
  • Stonecliff
  • Trailridge
  • Preserve
  • Pinnacle Hills  
  • Golf Colony
  • Granite Preserve
Work began on April 11 and will continue for about 3 months.
