Summer is finally here! After a long school year, it’s nice to know you can take time to enjoy the warmth the summertime brings. As the summer heats up, it is important you and your family know we are here for you. As time allows, please stop by the Community Office to meet the neighborhood team and let them know if there is anything they can do to improve your housing experience.
As you may know, Governor Brown has implemented mandatory water restrictions to preserve the water during the historical drought. Corvias is following Governor Brown’s water conservation program to help reduce water usage. In following this program, we have reduced your irrigation watering times up to 50% from last year.
Residents can assist with the drought by implementing some changes in their common household practices. Some tips include only running your dishwasher when it is full, adjusting water levels in the washing machine to match the size of the load and taking short showers rather than long showers or baths. Click here for additional information on how to conserve water and use it effectively.
I would like to thank each of our military families for what you do every day to preserve our way of life.
Do you have unique, one-of-a-kind treasures to sell? Maybe you have more stuff than house. Residents are permitted to hold a yard sale at their residence once a quarter, on Saturdays from 7:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Please ensure you refer to your Resident Responsibility Guide when having a yard sale at your residence. It is not permitted for residents to sell weapons, prescription or over the counter medication or the resale of new items (as a business) at your yard sales. If you have any questions or would like more information on the yard sale expectations while residing with Corvias, please contact your community office.
Corvias Foundation, a private, charitable foundation and the charitable arm of Corvias Group, has been committed to supporting military families in the pursuit of higher education since 2006. This year, Corvias Foundation has awarded 11 college scholarships of up to $50,000 to outstanding high school students, marking the 10th class of scholarship recipients. Since its founding by Corvias Group CEO John Picerne, the Foundation has awarded nearly $6 million in scholarships to the families of active-duty service members.
Surface clean condition implies that a home is left clean throughout. When a home is cleaned regularly, it should only require a wipe down and sweep or vacuum at move-out to deliver the appropriate condition. Your Resident Responsibility Guide provides detailed guidelines for surface clean condition. Here are a few to get you started:
- All personal items must be completely removed from the home, storage areas and garage.
- Any items requiring disposal must be disposed of in an appropriate, proper and approved manner.
- Any equipment or feature delivered as part of the home (including appliances, appliance parts, fixtures, hardware, etc.) is returned intact and in proper working order.
- Wall color is not altered or changed, unless previously approved by the Neighborhood Office.
- Carpeted surfaces are vacuumed and free of excess spots or stains.
- All windows are closed and locked with window covering left in the closed position.
- Garbage cans cleaned and placed in garage or storage area.
- All kitchen work surfaces are wiped down and free of excessive grease build-up.
- Refrigerator is wiped down inside and out, empty and free of mold/mildew.
- Range hood, stovetop, oven, drip pans and under burners are wiped down and free of burned-on food and excessive grease.
- Dishwasher exterior is clean.

- All bathroom surfaces are wiped down. All surfaces are free of soap scum, mold, mildew, and dirt build-up.

Corvias Military Living takes the safety of our residents seriously. In conjunction with National Safety Month, we would like to offer seven helpful tips to keep you and your family safe.
- Sun Safety - Beginning the summer season with sunburn is no fun. To minimize your opportunity of becoming the sun’s next victory, come prepared with your SPF armor. You can also protect yourself by wearing protective clothing and a brimmed hat. Loading up on H20 is another way to stay cool and safe in the summer sun.
- Water Safety- Never leave children unattended near any water to include: filled-buckets, bathtubs, toilets, wading or swimming pools. Wading pools should be empty and properly stored when not in use. A child can drown in 1 inch of water. Parents should stay within an arm’s length of young swimmers. Consider CPR certification to better prepare yourself in the event of an emergency.
- Bike Safety- Always wear a properly fitted helmet when riding bikes, scooters or skateboards. Wear bright clothes and put reflectors on the bike so that you can be seen. Be sure to check bikes tires to ensure proper inflation. Young children should stick to sidewalks and paths when bike riding.
- Playground Safety- Encourage your child to use the playground equipment properly. To prevent injuries don’t allow pushing or rough playing when at the playground. Always check the playground equipment in the summertime-it can get very hot. If you notice any issues with neighborhood playground equipment, please contact your community office.
- Fire Prevention - All propane and charcoal grills are only permitted to be used outdoors and the Fire Department recommends grills be placed 25 feet from your home and are not to be used underneath an overhang. Allow coals to cool before properly disposing. Never store propane gas cylinders in buildings or garages.
- Window Safety- Window safety- While enjoying fresh air in the warmer weather, remember that open windows pose a great fall risk to children. Window screens are designed to keep insects out, not to stop a child from falling. Moving furniture away from windows and properly supervising children greatly reduces risk.
- Speed limits - Please be mindful of speed limits as children may be playing outdoors or neighbors on walks, riding bikes, etc.
Keep curtains and shades closed to help keep sunlight out. The sun can increase the temperature in a room by several degrees. Utilize ceiling or portable fans which can reduce energy use by about 25%. Fans can make the temperature seem 10 degrees cooler.
