Caution! Wildlife in Evergreen

Neighbors, there have been a number of wildlife sightings recently including coyotes, bobcats, venomous snakes, and more.  Due to all of the building activity, more and more animals are being displaced from their homes and are wandering into our neighborhood.

There have been a couple of instances where pets in our community have been killed – PLEASE be vigilant with your pets and of course young children.

Holiday Fund for the Security Team at Evergreen

Each year at this time, the owners of Evergreen send a Holiday Gift to our Security Team at Evergreen. This year, as in the past, six (6) security officers are working the front entrance gate to facilitate 24/7 coverage.

The Securitas company has asked once again, that all funds be payable to Evergreen Holiday Fund, and Signature Property Management will distribute six (6) checks to the staff on December 24, 2020.

You are welcome to place your check (no cash please) in an envelope and drop it at the guard station, or if you prefer to mail it to Signature Property Management.

Thank you in advance and Happy Holidays.

Evergreen Directory – Advertising Opportunity

In early 2021, the Evergreen Board of Directors will be publishing a neighborhood directory similar to what has been produced in years past.  To offset the cost of printing, the BoD is accepting advertisements from local businesses.  Ad sizes range from business card size to a full page. If you’re interested in placing an ad for your business, please click here to download a form with pricing and instructions on how to make sure your ad is included in the directory.

All advertising requests are due by December 18, 2020, so don’t delay!  Thank you in advance for your support of the directory project.

80/20 Committee – Survey Results and Next Steps

In late September, a brief interest survey was sent to property owners of Evergreen POA. The summary of the survey results we received is listed below and confirms there is considerable interest in changing the current covenant.  We appreciate that many of you responded to this survey. Many respondents commented that our voting is our voice and not voting is silence.

Beginning in December, the committee will begin its campaign to change the rules with an informational brochure. We are in need of at least fifteen (15) volunteers to serve as “captains”.  These “captains” will communicate with residents, answer questions, and assist in getting all 299 property owners to vote.  If you would like to be a part of this committee and help us move Evergreen Property Owners forward, kindly email Tim Flannery at
