Columbia Village Rec Center Temporarily Closed
Due to the recent COVID-19 activity in Boise, and in response to recent CDC and federal guidelines, the board has made the difficult decision to close the Rec Center, which includes the gym, racquetball court, lending library, Pioneer Room and office. This is effective Thursday, March 19, 2020.

The board will continue to monitor the CDC for updates, and will re-evaluate the situation and opening of the Rec Center at the next regularly scheduled board meeting on April 21, 2020. Sentry Management will close down key card access during this time, and homeowners will not have access to the building. In addition, the entire Rec Center will undergo an extensive cleaning, disinfecting, and wiping down of all common areas and surfaces upon closing.    
If you have a confirmed reservation for the Pioneer Room during this time frame, Sentry Management will contact you directly to cancel or re-schedule for a later date or refund. 

Assessments / Dues: In lieu of dropping off a check for your HOA dues at the Rec Center, payments can be made by mailing to the address on the coupon, dropping off at the Eagle Office, or paying online at www.sentrymgt.com.

This is a decision the board did not make lightly. Although these actions may seem drastic to some, the board is erring on the side of caution and is striving to protect the health and well-being of both our homeowner's and their families and to assist in reducing the spread of COVID-19.   
We apologize for any inconvenience and will update you should the situation change. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

_________________________________
Communications and Events Committee plans a few annual events including the pool Opening Day in the spring and National Night Out in the fall. Members of this committee work with the CVOA management company and the webmaster to provide updates to the website. Upcoming events are communicated via the Announcements section of the website and via emails from Sentry. The Neighborhood Watch Committee is part pf the CVOA Communications and is organized into a team of block captains who are the contact people for specific sections of the neighborhood. The committee is responsible for maintenance of the Neighborhood Watch signs located on each street. Columbia Village has approximately 90 designated small sections for block captain participation. There’s always a need for more help and the time commitment is very minor, although some block captains go above and beyond by planning block parties and other fun activities. Block Captains act as a ‘telephone tree’ and to communicate with neighbors in the event of an neighborhood emergency. The Neighborhood Watch chairperson holds meetings once or twice per year for block captains to share ideas and learn more about what is happening in our community from guest speakers such as BPD, Carey Guard, and other relevant resources.
