FIRE IN EASTERN FOOTHILLS

A fast-moving fire has been reported about 1 hour ago in the foothills near Trabuco Canyon Road between the Orange and Riverside Counties border. If you look out your windows toward Riverside you’ll see a large plume of black and gray smoke developing.

According the the Orange County Register,  the fire is moving toward Riverside County (under current wind conditions).

Here are three news links providing preliminary details;

KEN UPTON – LONG TIME VILLAGE RESIDENT – ANNOUNCEMENT

Ken Upton

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of a long time Village resident, Ken Upton. Ken passed away peacefully, Sunday, July 15th with his family close by.

Ken and his wife Toni arrived in our community in 1997, and Ken’s love affair with The Village was immediate. He quickly volunteered and endlessly gave his time to the community, serving on several Village committees year after year. Ken held a position on our Board of Directors for over a decade, serving as our Association President for seven years.

All of us Village homeowners today can thank Ken whenever entering our neighborhood. It was under his leadership that Ken fought passionately of the importance of memorializing our community’s identity. As such, Ken championed the design and installation of our Community Monuments at our Via Alondra and Via Veneto entrances, seen by us all each day as we drive by.

Ken would be happy to know that a photo of the Village Monument will also serve as the logo for our new upcoming Association Website homepage.

There will be a Celebration of Life for Ken, Sunday August 5th (time to be announced) at the Coto Valley Country Club Canyon Room. All current and past Village residents are welcome to attend.

4th OF JULY PARADE UPDATE

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!

The Village HOA and the Coto Moms Club are looking forward to recreating the 4th of July Parade once again where it originally began, in the heart of the Village! Come join in the celebration along the Parade route commencing at the corner of Via Pato and ending at the Coto Valley Country Club. The Parade officially starts at 9:30AM but you’ll want to get to the route sooner for a good viewing spot.

FACTS AND IMPORTANT INFO

July 3rd overnight parking will be allowed along the Via Ortega shoulder. See  the Temporary Overflow Parking Location Map below.

The Parade will start at 9:30AM, at the end of Via Pato, heading North down Avenida la Caza along the condominium complexes, and winding along Via Venado to the main entrance to CVCC, the final destination.

Entry to the Village at the intersection of Via Pajaro and Via Conejo up to Via Ortega will be controlled by Allied Universal Security Service from 8:00AM until 10:30AM and will be closed to all but Village residents. Most Village residents will have full access in and out of the community for the duration of the Parade using Via Ortega. Residents of Via Pardal, Via Gallo and Via Oso who need access in or out during the duration of the Parade, please plan accordingly as those streets will be blocked off for the Parade from 9:00AM until 10:30AM. As mentioned, the overflow parking lot has been expanded to include the Via Ortega shoulder in part to accommodate this inconvenience.

Entry to the Village at the intersection of Via Pajaro and Via Venado will be controlled by Allied Universal Security Service from 8:00AM until 10:30AM. Village residents will have ingress and egress to the community until 9:00AM. The road will be blocked off for all but emergency vehicles for approximately 1½ hours. Full access will be restored once the end of Parade reaches CVCC at 10:30AM.

In the event of an emergency, First Responders (i.e. Fire Department, Sheriff, etc.) will naturally be given immediate access as always.

The Coto Moms Club has willingly complied with all Village HOA requirements for Liability Insurance, trash cans, clean-up, directional signage and sponsorships and has worked diligently to provide a fun-filled family event!

No Parking signs will be placed throughout the”ODD” sides of our streets. Additional No Parking signs are available at the bulletin board located at the corner of Via Coyote / Via Ortega. Look for the Red Brochure box. There is a PDF link below also.

Please note that there is no standing or sitting allowed in planted areas! Keep our Village landscaping in great condition and avoid crushing or breaking the foliage!

For information regarding after-Parade activities, please contact CVCC for details.
