Mar 29, 2020 (Activities Cancellation)
In accordance with Federal Government guidelines the management of Desert Pueblo Mobile Home Park has decided to keep the facilities lockdowns in place through April 30th. The Activities Association Executive Board has decided to continue the suspension of activities thru April 30th. The Activities Association Executive Board and the General Membership meeting scheduled for April 11th has been canceled. April 11th would have been our last regularly scheduled meeting for this season. The next regularly scheduled meeting will be October 10th. We will be watching the COVID-19 situation closely and will be making adjustments as we need and are able to. This difficult situation has been hard on everyone. We are a resilient bunch and with the help of our friends and neighbors we will get through this. This is a time for us to watch out for each other even more than we normally do. Let's make sure we all get through this crisis.
Thank you and stay safe.

On March 17th, I received a letter from Joe Moylan, President of the Desert Pueblo Activities Association. In part it stated that “Due to the serious nature of COVID-19 and the government direction to limit all gatherings to a maximum of ten people in order to prevent the spread of this virus, the Executive Committee of the Desert Pueblo Activities Association is suspending all activities within the Desert Pueblo Mobile Home Park. This suspension will run until April 1, 2020. At that time the Executive Committee will review the current information and will make further recommendations.”
After considerable discussions with the Park Staff and recent events with the Coronavirus (Covid-19), on March 19th we closed the large and small clubhouse facilities, pools and spas except for the Park Office, large laundry and small laundry. The laundry rooms are remaining open for tenants that do not have a washer and dryer, so they can sanitize their washables.
In regards to the Park Office, please contact Cindy via telephone at 889-9557 or 889-4130. Please only go to the Park Office if it’s required, but we have asked our staff to maintain the recommended 6-foot social distancing when you are at the office counter. We are also changing the way we collect Rents, so we can maintain the recommended 6-foot social distancing. We are installing a mailbox for your convenience on the left side of our office counter. Please either mail your Rent check via U.S. Mail or put it in our mailbox. Please NEVER slide a check under the door, to ensure it does not get lost.
On April 2nd, we will evaluate the government’s directions and work with Joe Moylan and the Park Staff, to decide if the facilities will be re-opened or remain closed.
Please take care of yourselves and stay safe by maintaining the recommended 6-foot social distancing and by washing your hands.

ATTENTION ALL RESIDENTS
Due to the serious nature of COVID-19 and the government direction to limit all gatherings to a maximum of ten people in order to prevent the spread of this virus, the Executive Committee of the Desert Pueblo Activities Association is suspending all activities within the Desert Pueblo Mobile Home Park. This suspension will run until April 1, 2020. At that time the Executive Committee will review the current information and will make further recommendations.
While our activities do occur on private property, being an “Over 55” park places the majority of our residents into a “higher risk” category. The Executive Committee feels the suspension of all activities occurring inside the park is the prudent thing to do. The activities being suspended at this time include: Koffee Klatch, Bingo, Pot Lucks, Craft Sale, Chuckwagon Dinner and Dances. This suspension includes activities that normally have more than ten people. The activities that normally have fewer than 10 people can continue at the participants discretion. The activities that have been suspended are only activities that take place within the park. I would like to thank the Executive Committee for their diligence in helping come to this decision, and I would like to thank all our residents for their patience and understanding during this difficult time.

We currently have a Security substitute guard position available for various shifts. If you’re interested, please contact Clarence Lewis at 559-776-8362 or visit him at the guard house.
Pioneer Plumbing is working in the Park behind your mobile homes. They will be greasing and color coding all the gas valves through mid-March.
We have purchased five (5) new transformers to replace five (5) existing transformers that provide electricity to the Park. The first two transformers that Sturgeon Electric installed in February were completed without any problems. The next three (3) transformers will be installed on March 9th, March 16th and March 23rd. The electricity will be turned off to the entire Park at 8 a.m. each morning and turned back on by approximately 9:30 a.m., except for the space numbers listed below. The electricity to the space numbers listed below will be off for approximately eight (8) hours per day. In the late afternoon, the electricity will be turned off to the entire Park again, while the new transformer is connected to the electricity. This same process will happen on each Monday. The transformer replacement could be completed earlier or later depending on any unforeseen problems that could occur. Sturgeon Electric will be working with high voltage electricity. Due to safety concerns, tenants will not be allowed in the work area and the electricians will not answer questions regarding their work or when the electricity will be turned back on. Please understand that the electricians must focus on their work, so they can turn the electricity back on for you as soon as safely possible.

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated during the replacement of the transformers.
The maintenance staff would like to remind you of the winter pool hours. The large pool is open from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., November 1st to March 15th. The small pool is currently closed and will reopen on March 16th.
If you are entering or exiting the back gate, please always wait for the gate to close before driving away, so uninvited guests cannot enter and wander around the Park. This is a security issue that we all should take seriously. As a reminder, always lock your mobile home doors, shed doors and all car doors. In addition, please place your bikes in your shed or mobile home at night.
Now that our snowbirds are back in the park, our streets are much busier. Please remind your family, guests, and/or vendors that our speed limit is always 15 MPH and be constantly aware of many more walkers and bikers on our streets. As a safety reminder, to all those who are walking in the dark, please wear light colored clothing and carry flashlights. If you are riding your bike at night, please have the proper lights on the front and rear of your bikes.
I hope you all have a Healthy and Happy 2020, wherever you might be! Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook for important updates!
