Shadow Hills Golf Club Update

SCSH Residents,

I wanted to send this note to say “Thank You” for the time I was able to spend at Shadow Hills Golf Club in the role as General Manager for Troon Golf. My time here was very pleasant and my hope is that your property will thrive in a way that will benefit everyone moving forward. We have found a very capable candidate to replace me and he will be transitioning to the property toward the middle of August. Phil Vigil is a resident of the area and has been in charge of several properties in his time in the valley. I will be assisting Phil into the month of August remotely and will provide him the tools needed to transition into his new home at Shadow Hills Golf Club.

I’m grateful to have developed relationships with a few of you and with your wonderful staff personnel. Thank you again for receiving me with open arms and best wishes for success!

Sincerely,
Mike Dunlop
General Manager
Shadow Hills Golf Club

Introducing Cheryl Paninder New Fitness Instructor

I always enjoyed working out and the gym. I was introduced to spin (cycling) when it first came out. The gym I belonged to needed an instructor and for 10 years I taught the 6 a.m. class for World Gym. Now I’m just subbing because of COVID.

During my time with instructing spin, the fitness director said we could use a SilverSneakers instructor. Five years later, I’ve been teaching Classic – Circuit – Boom. Then two years ago I was approached to take on Pilates mat-reformer.

I also love being outdoors and hiking. I’ve been on many trails, but my biggest accomplishment was getting to the top of Mount Whitney.

I look forward to working out with you!

CVWD Storm Channel Project Update: Dust Control

CVWD and Sukut Construction (Sukut) understand the concerns with dust caused by high winds in North Indio where the North Indio Flood Control Project – phase 2 (Project) is under construction. Sukut can control dust and any associated air pollution within the project footprint by following applicable laws, rules, and regulations of the governmental entities having jurisdiction (City, State, etc.) as outlined in the contract documents.

The Air Quality Management District has inspected the construction site on March 18, March 28, April 11, and May 26 and did not find any violations causing dust related to construction activity.

Many communities in the valley are surrounded by undeveloped desert including North Indio and are susceptible to dust and sand accumulation from the season’s unusual high winds.

Here are the actions being done to minimize dust from construction activities, which also meet contract requirements:

  • Watering dirt piles associated with construction.
  • Applying a soil binder to stockpiles of dirt.
  • Watering dirt on trucks before they leave for transportation.
  • Sweeping and vacuuming sand from the roads near constructions sites even if caused by wind from undeveloped land.

CVWD and its contractors will continue to minimize dust associated with construction activities but are not responsible for dust coming from undeveloped land. We thank everyone for their patience during this important project.

Double Dump Trucks on Avenue 40

The CVWD North Basin project and the CVWD Avenue 40 storm drain projects are requiring a massive number of 18-wheel double-dump trucks to haul away the excavated dirt. The trucks use Avenue 40 both east and westbound and travel fully loaded at high speeds passing all Avenue 40 gate entrances, and the Shadows driveway entrance, and when crossing Jefferson Street. Please USE EXTREME CAUTION when entering the Avenue 40 roadway from any location to avoid a collision with one of these trucks. This will continue for several more weeks or months.
