What's Up in Bear Valley Springs?
September 12, 2020
We are only two months away from the 2020 election. Not only will you be voting for the President, a Senator, and House members, to name a few, but also locally for our CSD candidates. We have at least four candidates now for the two open seats. I would encourage each and every candidate to keep it clean, civil and to focus on our issues at hand, not on things that are not relevant to CSD duties. Remember that we are all neighbors here, and hopefully each and every one of the candidates wants to work for the well-being of the community. You may have to work together, so don’t make enemies before you even start.
The weekend of August 29 and 30, our community was home to a massive garage sale. Normally, we would have a rummage sale at Cub Lake with several parties holding down a booth, but this year, because of the ever-present virus and the concern about social distancing, the BVSA opted to give homeowners the opportunity to engage in a community-wide garage sale. This took care of too many people congregating in one place, and gave an outing to neighbors. The event exceeded all expectations with one hundred and nine homes signing up. If it was like the one in which I participated, three households got together and held a multi-family sale. We still never had more than four customers at once (a carload), so social distancing was not a problem. Plus several people were compliant in wearing masks. However, being outdoors, and in uncrowded surroundings, most of us felt pretty safe.
An important warning is in effect for Four-Island Lake. We have a serious toxic algae problem and warning signs are posted. They allow swimming at your own risk, but warn against letting your dogs in, and letting them drink the water. Fishing is okay but clean the fish well, if you decide to eat it. Check with E-Buzz to learn the restrictions.
We have several new neighbors here in the valley. Welcome to you all. E-Buzz is a great way to keep up on community activities. To get onto E-Buzz, contact Anita Bauer at the Association office. Phone (661) 821-5537.
Bear Valley Springs is a private gated community in which the residents pay an annual association amenities fee. To participate in the above events, a non-member or non-resident must arrange with a friend or family member in the community for a guest pass that would permit them to engage in the activities. Guest passes will be checked.
