Spring is here and our neighborhoods are filled with more Airmen, family members, and pets taking advantage of the warmer weather. Corvias Military Living is asking our residents to please pay attention to posted speed limits and traffic rules as they drive through family housing. The speed limit and traffic rules in base housing are designed to give the average driver the time and space needed to stop and avoid a tragedy.
Site development has begun on the new Community Center. We ask that you please remain mindful of all posted construction signs, as they are intended to keep you safe. Work is also underway on additional community amenities to include a dog park, bus shelters, pavilions, sidewalks and landscape enhancements.
Summer will be here all too soon, which means higher temperatures. It is a good idea to test your air conditioner this month to ensure that it is operating properly. Also, please be sure to check your A/C filters. If they need to be replaced, please stop by the Community Office for replacement filters.
Thank you for your continuing service to our great nation. If you have any questions please call the Community Office at (919) 988-6920.

Corvias Military Living is excited to announce our first event of 2016, Spring into Fun! FREE food, music, games, raffles, and much more will be waiting for you as we kickoff the spring season. The FREE event will be held on Friday, April 29 from 4-7 pm at the field across from the community office. Please join the fun right in your backyard! We look forward to seeing you there!
April is Month of the Military Child. During this month, we take time to recognize the sacrifices of our military children, and celebrate their strength, courage and resiliency. Our youngest heroes serve by adapting to frequent moves, change of schools, parental deployments, and life transitions.
In conjunction with Month of the Military Child, Purple Up! is an initiative calling the community to show support for children in military families. You can do this by wearing the color purple on April 8th. Why purple? Purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is a combination of Army green, Marine red, and Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard blue.
Corvias Military Living would like to salute our military children and show appreciation for all that they do!
Spouses of active-duty service members are eligible to apply for $5,000 Educational Grants for college. Applications are due May 5 and are available at corviasfoundation.org.
Each month, residents spotted doing the right thing or going above and beyond are recognized. If you find a Thank You note on your door from Corvias, you have been entered into a monthly drawing! This month, our Resident Spotlight Award goes to A1C Guy Hoeye!! Thanks for being an outstanding resident and taking such great care of your home! We always notice your clean and neat exterior when we drive by! We are happy to have you and your family living with us at Seymour Johnson!
Stay up-to-date on resident events, community information and emergency notifications. Please take a moment to update your contact information here, because we don’t want you to miss a thing that is going on in your community! By providing us with a working phone number and two current e-mail addresses, we will be able to contact you in a timely fashion for maintenance requests, event information, and more.
Getting ready to PCS, ETS, or Retire? Make sure you attend one our new move out information sessions
To help make the move out process a little easier, Corvias will be transitioning from pre-termination inspections to Move out Information Sessions. After a resident gives a 30-day notice, attending these classes is strongly encouraged. Residents will have a choice to attend a Tuesday at 1030 am or Thursday at 2pm at the Community Office. The session goes over cleaning, damages, trash removal, painted walls, satellite dishes, remaining BAH, and additional items that will help make the move out process a little less stressful for our families. Please contact the Community Office if you have any questions!
We are continuing to complete our annual preventative home maintenance visits on each of the Seymour Johnson AFB homes. We will ensure that your fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, mechanical system and applications, etc. are in tip-top shape. This work does require entry into your home, so we will be sure to inform you of your preventative maintenance visit in advance. The next group of homes to be visited will be: 216-318 Chandler and 102-306 Chanute between April 18th – 22nd.
Please check the calendar for your scheduled mowing days. Please keep in mind that all animal waste needs to be cleaned up for the landscapers. Also, all toys and other items need to be stored properly in the back yard. Pine straw will continue to be provided through the month of April. If you have allergies to this product, please call our community office. Also, Munie will be providing a pre-emergent weed control treatment and a broadleaf application. These treatments kill existing weeds and prevent weeds from germinating. These services will be provided on your normal lawn care day and small flags will be placed in your yard to designate the areas sprayed. When the flags are removed, it’s safe to be on the grass. As always, yards will continue to receive weed treatment around tree rims and in cracks and crevices.
The warmer weather is upon us and many residents are enjoying the great weather and extra sunlight to complete do it yourself projects. There are some great projects that utilize wood pallets for things from bookcases, planters, to furniture. If you are working on such a project, we look forward to you sharing a picture of the end result with us. We would like to remind residents that projects need to be properly stored in the garage or the rear of the home. Please do not store wooden pallets or works in progress in the front of the home.
As the warmer weather is approaching and we start preparing our families for fun activities in the sun, many of us may decide to purchase a pool for the kids to play in their backyard. Please remember if you are purchasing a pool that:
- Only small, well-maintained wading pools are permitted. Wading pools must be 12 inches or less in height and no more than 10-feet wide.
- Wading pools must be positioned in the backyard on grassy areas
- Wading pools must be emptied daily and removed when not in use.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to the Community Office.
