Whether golfing Sun City Summerlin’s courses, walking the dog or driving through the community, residents may have noticed that the association has stated work on a turf reduction program aimed at reducing expenses for water and maintenance. First noticed to residents in the July issue of the Link by Sun City Summerlin Community Association, Inc., Vice President and Treasurer Jim Akers, Golf Course Maintenance staff completed a major project on Thursday, October 23 at Highland Falls Golf Course. According to GCM Director Brian Bagwell, the project involving 6 acres of grassy area in front of the lake, which runs along Sun City Boulevard, began a little more than two months ago when the water to the area was shut off. In place of the grass, the landscape has been redesigned to include several colors and shapes of rock, as well as drought-tolerant plants and trees. SCSCAI’s turf-reduction program is registered with the Southern Nevada Water Authority, and the Association will receive a rebate at the conclusion of the projects.

Sewer Project to Delay Traffic

Attention All Residents

Starting August 4, the city of Las Vegas will start an 11-month sewer project. It will start at the intersection of Lake Mead and Rampart boulevards, where there will be severe lane restrictions for six weeks. After that phase, the east side of Rampart Boulevard will be closed in sections for three months at a time for a period of nine month. This means that only the west side of Rampart Boulevard will be in use for both north- and south-bound traffic. It would be best if Sun City residents use alternative routes whenever possible. You will be updated as more information becomes available.
