The signal poles will be received next Wednesday (June 12,2024), and we will work to set up the signal in the following weeks but before the July 4th. They will be stamping the asphalt but that may not happen until after the 4th of July. It's best for the asphalt to sit for at least 30 days to the
coating can adhere better.

 Maximum Splash was on-site on Thursday and replaced the valves at The Bridges Splash Pad and Hidden Park Splash Pad. The Bridges Splash
 pad is up and running, but the bamboo bubbler is leaking under the deck when it comes on, so it's been turned it off.
 At the Splash Pad at Hidden Park, they found a crack in the plumbing manifold when they replaced three (3) valves. They fixed the crack but
 when it was turned back on one of the unions broke. The Hidden Park Splash pad is back off and they will be back next week to dig it up and
 replace the bad union. Thank you for your patience

Sand Wasps have been spotted in the southern part of the sand at Bridges Park playground. According to our pest control company, sand wasps pose no danger to humans as they primarily hunt flies. Female wasps bury their prey in the sand alongside their eggs to nourish the growing population. These insects are not aggressive and will only sting if disturbed during their burrowing. Monitoring of the affected area will continue, and it is expected that the wasps will move on in time. Visitors to Bridges Park should remain mindful of the sand wasps' presence.

Now is the time to get your trees ready for the Monsoon Season!
Monsoon season will be here before you know it! If you are not already doing so, we encourage you to evaluate your trees. Don’t wait for a storm
to remind you how important it is to have your trees trimmed and thinned as needed.
  •  Prune annually or semi-annually (sometimes every two to three years, depending on the type of tree) even while they are still young
  •  Having your trees trimmed professionally by someone who understands healthy tree structure is best to avoid potential problems

Did you know that per the Town of Gilbert, "bicycles are allowed to occupy sidewalks but must yield to any pedestrians. If bike lanes are not available, cyclists can choose to use that lane as well. If a sign prohibits the riding of a bike on a sidewalk, then the cyclist cannot occupy the sidewalk"
 
Please be cautious of pedestrians when riding your bike on the sidewalks throughout the community.

Many residents are aware of the rodent issue in The Bridges at Gilbert. The community is situated between two washes that serve as habitats for these rodents. We are working with a pest control company to address the issue; however, your cooperation is crucial. The effectiveness of the rodent control efforts depends on the community's practices. 
 
Pack rats are native to North America, and the goal is not to eliminate them from their natural habitats, but to prevent them from damaging vehicles and homes. Please consider the following:
  1. Pack rats may eat pet food, so if you feed your pets outdoors, remove leftover food and store it in well-sealed plastic containers. This deters not only rats but other pests as well.
  2. Fruit trees can attract pack rats if fallen fruit is not promptly cleared away.
  3. Pack rats require water, food, shelter, and darkness to thrive and are most active from midnight to 4:00 A.M.
  4. Pack rats will gather items to build their nests. Please trim any overgrown vegetation around your home, particularly at the base to reduce the shade that rats use for cover during the day.
  5. Lastly, inspect your homes foundation for any gaps where the ground has settled. These gaps can provide entry points for rats to nest under your house. Seal any small holes or openings, and clear away items stored along fences that could shelter pack rats.

As a friendly reminder, all residents are kindly requested to submit any proposed changes to the visible exterior of their residences for approval. This process covers a wide range of alterations such as exterior lighting modifications, painting, landscaping adjustments, driveway extensions, and more. Should you have any inquiries or require assistance regarding a specific project, please feel free to click below to review the Design Review Guidelines or directly reach out to us for further guidance.

Additionally, it is suggested to err on the side of caution when working with a contractor that claims it would be unnecessary to submit for a change, as residents could potentially be required to repaint, or restore a change to its previous condition.

Thank you for your cooperation in maintaining the harmony and aesthetics of our community.

Spring is in the air, and it is a beautiful time to be outside at The Bridges. Between the weather and the Easter Holiday, the parks and walking paths will see a lot of use.

We have seen an increase in reports of bee hives and swarms. On Friday, March 29, 2024, Bucksworth removed or relocated five swarms. Please exercise caution when out in the community.
