Architectural Approval
 
Just a reminder that you need to contact the Architectural Committee before starting any outside projects.    Paint colors need approval as well as additions to the house.   The form is in the Documents section of the website under the Architectural heading.   The form is sent to our Community Managers at AZCMS.
 
Bulk Pick Up 
    Bulk pick up is NOT always the last week of the month, it varies.  You must check before putting out waste.
    www.scottsdaleaz.gov/solid-waste/brush-bulk-collection
    Due to the fact that Sierra Norte does not have a designated day for bulk pickup, the Board approved a change which now allows YARD WASTE to be placed near the street beginning on WEDNESDAY of the week prior to the next scheduled Scottsdale bulk collection.  This allows homeowners to have a landscaper come on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of the week before bulk pick up and utilize the collection service.   HOUSEHOLD ITEMS such as a mattress, refrigerator, etc. can only be put out beginning the SATURDAY of the week before bulk collection – the same as before. If you are uncertain whether the bulk collection truck has been in the neighborhood or not, please verify by calling the City of Scottsdale at 480 312 5600. Please Note:  If items are placed on the street before the specified days or left on the street after the collection truck has already been in Sierra Norte, there will be an immediate $50 fine.
    The week for bulk waste collection is posted on the city's website (scottsdaleaz.gov/solid-waste/brush-bulk-collection) and in the newsletter. The actual day of collection is not stated and may be any day of that week (Monday to Saturday).  To insure collection have your waste out no later than 6:00am on the Monday of the week.  Yard waste can go out starting the Wednesday before the pickup week.  Household items can be put out starting the Saturday before the week of pick up.   The next bulk waste week starts on March 25th, April 22nd, May 20th, June 24, July 29, August 26th, September 30th, October 28th, NO November start, December 2nd, and December 30th.

Painting Your House
 
There has been some confusion regarding colors that were originally used on your house.   AZCMS can tell you which combination was used  on your house. The colors are also listed for each house in the new Design Guidelines (copy in Members Area of website).  The original Dunn Edwards paint combinations were:
DE3198 spearhead/ DE3197 sidewinder
DE3038 water oak/DE3039 fievel
SP2810 prairie dove/SP2730 your bluff
DE3180 wild dunes/DE3179 tan moccasin
DE3053 masterpiece/DE3052 flatter me
 
If a homeowner wants to change the house color, then the approval process is slightly different. Colors must be muted desert compatible earth tones and fit into the community color scheme. White and bright primary colors are not permitted. In no case should the roof color unduly contrast with the color of the house All main house colors must have a light reflected value (LRV) between (and including) 30% and 40%. Trim and accent colors must have a LRV less than (and including) 40%. The homeowner must mail a paint sample to the management company for the Architectural Committee to evaluate. It may not be an emailed color sample since the colors will not be accurate. If the Architectural Committee finds the new color conditionally acceptable, the homeowner will need to paint a small area (three feet by three feet) on the house or a large piece of wood a minimum of 3’x3’ for committee to evaluate on-site. When the house is painted, the roof stacks and vents must be painted to match the roof.

Tennis Court Use
The Community Tennis Court is a valuable and appreciated Community asset, but it's use is RESTRICTED to the playing of Tennis or Pickle Ball only- any other use of the Court is strictly prohibited as damage can result and could give rise to increased maintenance and repair costs which in turn would have to be recovered from Homeowners by further assessment. Such prohibited uses would include, but are not limited to, Soccer, Skate Boarding, Skating, Hockey, Frisbee, Dog Walking, Exercising & Training, Basketball etc. We would cordially ask users of the Tennis Court to extinguish court lighting after play, and refrain from hitting tennis or other balls against the court perimeter fencing. We thank Homeowners and their Children for their cooperation in maintaining our Tennis Court in pristine condition for its intended use, and hope that as many of you as possible will make use of this terrific facility - a Notice of Permitted Use has been posted, in full view, adjacent to the Tennis Court Gate.  Hours of use are 6 am until 10 pm.
