What's Up in Stallion Springs?
January 30, 2021
Last year was a busy year for housing and related projects in Stallion Springs. Permits for 32 new homes were issued, 20 new fences and 13 new storage buildings and sheds. Multiple new permits were also issued for tree removal, standalone garages, patios, solar, new roofs and painting. Nine permits were also issued for various other property improvement projects.
Did you know we have CC&Rs (Conditions, Covenants and Restrictions) in the community. These CC&Rs are necessary to preserve and enhance property values throughout our community and to protect and maintain the rural residential character of the area. A few examples are: having paint samples, fencing, building and any outdoor structures approved. We protect our oaks; you must get approval for the removal of any oak trees on your property. Please take the time to review them on our website, http://www.stallionspringscsd.com, and call the office with any questions you may have.
New Board Member
Ed Gordon's term on the Board expired on December 17 and the Board took the required action to fill the vacancy. The Board received two applications to fill the position. The board interviewed the applicants to see who would best fill the position. Neil Record was chosen to fill the position. The January meeting was held by Zoom so he will be sworn in at the February 16 meeting.
Baseball is coming
A backstop was installed on January 14 at Man-O-War Park thanks to Brandon Warme and Ken Harrison. Additional agreements have been made for dugouts and bleachers. A full baseball field should be ready for use by spring.
