The last Annual Homeowners Meeting was held in-person Friday, April 29, 2022 @9am at the Countryside Community Center.
The Villas' 30th Annual Garage Sale was held Sat April 22 & Sun April 23, 2023 from 8am-12pm.
HOA Rules state that individual garage sales are not permitted, however, garage sales are permitted as long as they are a community sponsored event. Once a year (in Spring) Countryside Villas HOA sponsors a community garage sale if there is interest and at least 10 participants.
Each homeowner is responsible for their own garage sale. The Board is not responsible for organizing, participating, or setting up the event, although Board members are homeowners and thus are free to help, volunteer and participate. The organizers and participants come from within the homeowners of the association on a volunteer basis.
For more info click here: Annual Garage Sale Info
Once per month the Community Manager does a drive-thru inspection and makes note of any HOA violations like cars parking along apron, trash cans being left outside the day after trash pickup, garage doors being left open unattended, and unsightly articles left on front yard area or that can be seen from the street, that includes hoses, trash cans, carpets, boxes, trash. The Community Manager will then send out a notice to the homeowner to correct the problem. For any questions or if you receive a notice please contact the Community Manager.
B&C TOWING is on contact to do random drive-thurs looking for vehicles parked in violation along the apron and vehicles parked in the visitor/short-term parking lot over 48 hours without a permit. The towing fee is $200 plus $20 per day storage fee. Contractors should place orange traffic cones around their vehicle to alert their presence and also to prevent their vehicle from being towed.
If your vehicle is towed call B&C Towing at 520-744-1867, do NOT call the manager or the Board, it's out of their hands.
IMPORTANT REMINDER: Please remember not to schedule home maintenance on our trash day (Tuesdays) if your contractor will be using heavy equipment or blocking any portion of the street the trash truck won’t be able to pick up our trash.
NOTE: There may be rare times due to holiday schedules and weekends that trash day is moved to the next business day following the day after the holiday. For example: July 4 landed on a Monday, so pickup came on Wednesday (the next business day following the day after the holiday). During the Covid outbreak so many drivers were out sick and a few times the recycle cans were not picked up until the following week. However the black trash cans (garbage) were always picked up that week--even if it wasn't on the regularly scheduled date; it's the policy of Republic Services that the garbage cans (black trash cans) must be picked up once per week, even if the regularly scheduled day was moved for that week. But this scenario is rare and only occurred during the Covid outbreak and when staff was down.
HOLIDAYS: NOTE this below is copied from from Republic's website, they say 1 day but in our experience it is the business day FOLLOWING the day after the holiday so sometimes that makes it 2 days not 1 day. For example: July 4thh 2022 landed on a Monday, so pickup came on Wednesday (the next business day following the day after the holiday).
NEW YEAR'S DAY- Jan 1, 2022 Your pickup will be delayed by 1 day.
INDEPENDENCE DAY- Jul 4, 2022 Your pickup will be delayed by 1 day
THANKSGIVING - Nov 24, 2022 pickup will be delayed by 1 day
MEMORIAL DAY- May 30, 2022 Your pickup will be delayed by 1 day
LABOR DAY- Sep 5, 2022 Your pickup will be delayed by 1 day
CHRISTMAS- Dec 25, 2022 Your pickup day will remain the same. The Christmas holiday does not impact your service schedule.
If homeowners ever have questions about their trash pickup call Republic (520) 745-8820 (Republic’s phone number also printed on homeowner’s recycle trash bins). https://www.republicservices.com/residents

Please turn your outside light on at night or use automatic dusk to dawn bulbs for community lighting and safety; your light helps illuminate the street which helps others walk safely at night and also illuminates your house number which is critical for visibility for emergency vehicles and deliveries coming at night.
Try automatic dusk to dawn bulbs just screw them in and you'll never have to remember to turn your lights on or off manually again; they go on at dusk and off at dawn automatically. You can buy them from Amazon here: https://tinyurl.com/3yhz4vnc
(can use 100 watt light bulbs)
Please keep garage doors closed “All garage doors of the dwelling units shall remain fully lowered and closed at all times unless the door is being used for purposes of ingress and egress.” An unaccompanied open garage invites theft; and also snakes and other wildlife onto your property. (DCC&Rs, Article II, Section 2.08)

B&C TOWING is authorized by contract to conduct periodic random drive-bys and will tow vehicles parked along the apron or in the visitor lot without a permit without warning. If a contractor or workman doesn't have safety cones conspicuously placed around the front, side, and back of their vehicle indicating they're performing work, they are at risk of being towed without warning. In addition, a vehicle may be towed without warning at any time that the Board of Directors or the Association manager reasonably believes that the vehicle represents a safety risk; or when the Villas is having paving done and a vehicle is blocking the work from being performed.
TEMPORARY PARKING PERMITS
CONTACT THE BOARD FOR A TEMPORARY PARKING PERMIT (or send email to the Board: CountrysideVillasHOA@yahoo.com)
Homeowners are each allowed 2 vehicles to be parked in the subdivision on a permanent basis and those vehicles MUST be parked in their garage. NOTE: Parking permits are available for temporary or short-term parking. Parking permits are not issued to homeowners or renters wanting a personal parking space for their 3rd vehicle. Each homeowner is only allowed 2 vehicles on the lots and common property.
There are a total of 34 visitor/guest parking spaces. They are not available to be used as a permanent private parking space for a homeowner's 3rd vehicle. Keep in mind, the goal is not to fill up the empty visitor parking lots; but to guarantee ample parking is provided for visitors, guests, and short-term parking for homeowners. Each homeowner signs this agreement upon purchasing their home. When homeowners honor their agreement there will always be plenty of parking for guests.
Also please note garage switching, rotating 3 vehicles or visitor parking lot hopping are not allowed. Those that do this run the risk of having their vehicle towed without warning. Homeowners are not allowed more than 2 vehicles to be parked in the Villas lots or common areas, so garage switching and parking lot hopping won't help and your vehicle may be towed.
How to tell an irrigation leak from a main water pipe leak in your front yard:
If you notice a neighbor's water leak and they are not home please contact the manager to ask them to notify the homeowner, and if the leak is severe also call Oro Valley Water to come shut it off.
