Neighborhood Watch and Private Community Facebook Group:
I heard there is a Neighborhood Watch in Coyote Ranch. How can I find out who the street captain is for my street?
Common Area Landscaping Issues:
What do I do if I spot a minor irrigation leak in the common areas?
Place a flag near the leak to create a notice for the landscaping crew. Flags are located in the trash receptacles placed in common areas.
Annual Holiday Decorations:
How does the annual holiday luminary display in Coyote Ranch work? Does the HOA pay for this?
The annual luminary display is put on by neighbors. Each street has one or more captains who collect “fair share donations” from neighbors and then organizes the purchase of the luminary kits and the set up and clean up from each street. Each street contributes kits and helps to set up on the common area streets. Usually the sand required for the bags is donated by homeowners and available for pick up by the street captain.
The HOA does pay for the palm trees to be lighted at the entrance to Coyote Ranch and to Cornerstone.
