Street Improvement Project
Ben’s Asphalt will be seal coating the asphalt within Columbus Grove throughout the month of August. This will require the Association to block traffic for up to 24 hours at a time and redirect traffic on and around the areas being actively sealed. Your cooperation is of utmost importance to facilitate the success of the project.

From August 8th to August 17th, the Irvine side of the community will be seal coated. The Tustin side of the community will then follow from August 17th to August 26th. The streets being actively coated will be closed down at 7:00 AM, and will reopen the following morning, after 24 hours. Please keep in mind that weather and unforeseen conditions may change the schedule, as well as extend the duration of closure, without advanced notice. Enclosed are the Irvine and Tustin schedules.
While a particular area is being seal coated, access to applicable streets, driveways, and parking will be prohibited until the following morning. If you will need to drive your vehicle while your street is being seal coated, please ensure it is moved by 7 AM and parked on a nearby street that is not actively being coated, so you may access it. Otherwise, if you do not pull out your vehicle from the driveway or garage by 7 am, you’ll be unable to do so until the following morning. Any vehicles remaining on the street during its scheduled date will be towed at the owner’s expense in order to keep the project on schedule and prevent additional, unnecessary expenses. You will not need a safelist pass or permit to park your vehicle on the street overnight during this time. However, all other parking rules must still be followed. Any vehicles parked in a fire lane, within 15 feet of a hydrant, blocking a driveway or pedestrian traffic on a sidewalk
may still be subject to tow.

Irvine residents, the City of Irvine has provided a temporary parking variance along the public section of Sweet Shade, adjacent to the City park, from August 7th through the 17th. They have requested that residents first utilize space on the HOA’s property prior to parking on the City’s street. Please be respectful of this, as this is a privilege we don’t want to lose. Savannah and Kensington Court sub-association residents will be impacted by this project as well since the
sub-association alleys and streets connect to those belonging to the master association. Tustin residents, from August 16th through the 26th, you will be temporarily allowed to park along Jasmine Place (by Grove Park) overnight in addition to the parking lot on each side of the Great Room Clubhouse and Grove House. Clarendon and Ainsley Park sub-association residents will be impacted by this project as well since the sub-association alleys and streets connect to those belonging to the master association.

Please do not drive or walk on or into any streets with closure barricades in place. Barricades are an indication that the slurry seal is wet. Driving or walking on the wet slurry can result in significant damages to the street and cause black tar-like substance to adhere to your car tires or shoes, which will leave marks on driveways, sidewalks, inside homes, etc. We recommend that roaming pets, such as cats, be kept inside and that young children be monitored, if outside.
The Association and Ben’s Asphalt will not be held responsible for any damage caused by carelessness or not adhering to these guidelines. All residents need to turn off their front yard sprinklers the day prior to the seal coating on their street; please keep them off until 12:00 PM the day following the seal, as streets must be dry for successful seal application. Unfortunately, there will not be mail delivery to blocked streets. If you have any work or deliveries scheduled, please arrange with your vendors (including landscapers and housekeepers), contractors, meal services, etc accordingly.
After the seal coat has cured, please exercise caution when turning. Please avoid turning the steering wheel while the vehicle is not moving as this creates “power-steering” marks on the surface. This is sometimes unavoidable, and the marks do wear over time, but we’d like to minimize these as much as possible. Instead, please gently roll into turns. 

Although this work will cause a brief inconvenience, it is necessary to preserving and extending the life of the asphalt throughout the community. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated

August Yard of the Month Winner
Each month, the Landscape Committee selects one home for the prestigious Yard of the Month award. The homes that are selected showcase curated plant palettes and beautifully-maintained landscaping that not only meet, but exceed, the community's standards. 
The Landscape Committee would like to recognize Mark, Yvonne, and Jenny of 16632 Sonora as the winners of August's Yard of the Month Contest. Their home was selected due to the creativity and care put into their landscaping. Their yard features decorative pots spilling out luscious allysum flowers, whimsical gnomes, and pops of purple from the Lily of the Nile. The plant palette incorporates a beautiful blend of succulents and California natives, making it practical given the state's ongoing drought. Thank you, Mark, Yvonne, and Jenny, for your help in making Columbus Grove a beautiful place to call home!
