NEW: MyGreenCondo Saguaro Canyon Sub Web Portal !

Please be advised that Snake River Management Company, our subdivision property management company (https://snakeriverhoamgmt.homesteadcloud.com/) supports a web-based app/website that provides a unique web “portal” for Saguaro Canyon Subdivision owners/residents, as well as other HOA/subdivisions that they manage.

The specific “portal” site for Saguaro Canyon Subdivision is https://www.mygreencondo.net/saguarocanyon/index. All Saguaro Canyon Owners/residents are encouraged to log in at https://www.mygreencondo.net/saguarocanyon/login.php and create your own account. If Snake River already has your email address on file, you will find that your account username (email address) is already populated in the account user name window. The first time you log in, you must create a password to complete the application for your account. If you do not find your email already populated, please inform erik@snakeriverhoa.com and provide with a proper one, which will also be used for broadcast emails to our subdivision.

The portal offers numerous options to help improve homeowners’ visibility on HOA issues such as check your account balance and make payments, submit ARC applications for improvements to your property, respond to violation letters, access documents and forms, and much more. A “neighbors” section is also included, such that you can see the names and addresses of Saguaro Canyon subdivision residents. (Residents can opt in/out of this feature, or various parts of it).

Except for our Saguaro Canyon Subdivision unique data, the MyGreenCondo website is not a one-off for Saguaro Canyon. Snake River has implemented MyGreenCondo as a service for all of their Snake River Managed HOAs, as a benefit to all owner/residences.

MyGreenCondo includes features that support/assist Snake River in their property management services, as well as the Saguaro Canyon Subdivision Board of Directors to have direct access to subdivision statistics, financial/budget records, vendor/contractors, and the ability to do surveys, polls, and manage voting on important issues, which is an important feature.

Snake River HOA Management populates appropriate fields/windows with Saguaro Canyon subdivision specific data.

Please create your account, log in, and explore the site, and provide feedback to erik@snakeriverhoa.com. We think you will find the site very helpful and powerful given its wide selection of important features.

This MyGreenCondo portal for our Saguaro Canyon subdivision is not intended to replace our https://www.saguarocanyonsub.com/ website, which contains much more “real-time” AND detailed information regarding just about anything you might want to know about our subdivision in general.


EMAIL ADDRESSES

We occasionally have an urgent need to get important information to our residents and owners. This is also to manage HOA costs by not using the postal service.

PLEASE BE SURE that your current email address is on file at our property management company, Snake River HOA Management Company. This is as easy as sending an email to erik@snakeriverhoa.com. Be sure to include your full name and address.

Snake River HOA Management will only send occasional emails as necessary, never spam, and will keep your information completely private.

Streetlight Outages

Streetlamp not working on your street or in the subdivision? You can easily report a specific streetlight issue by using the MERIDIAN CITY INTERACTIVE MAP BY CLICKING HERE. Simply find the light/lamp location on the map and click on it.

The decorative street lamps along Red Horse (designated in the yellow/gold color) up to Joshua Tree belong to the Subdivision and are maintained by the Subdivision. Contact Eric@SnakeRiverHOA.com if one of the lamps along Red Horse is not working.


Pool Area Security

Let there be no question: entering the pool area during the off hours is trespassing and can not be tolerated. Trespassing, and trespassing causing damage to the property are punishable offenses. Repairs are expensive (coming out of HOA revenues) and could jeopardize the future use of the pool for all.

Our high-resolution video security system monitors, records, and provides us with a visual that clearly individuals who choose to make use of our property illegally or causes vandalization. Three additional cameras were added in 2020, that provide great views of the entire pool area.

Cameras monitor the gate entrance area, both pools, and the fireplace den 24-7. This system will also help in the event any unfortunate accident occurs within the area, providing us with a historical visual record.

More information about the pool is available on the “Pool Info” page.


General Maintenance and Common Issues

Note: all notations below are a very short summary of what is covered in the Saguaro Canyon CC&Rs or By-Laws. Refer to these documents for all details

Home Painting

Given the long hot summers and cold winters experienced here in Treasure Valley, typically our homes need to be completely repainted every 6 – 8 years. The hot sun quickly burns and fades any paint.

If you are repainting with exactly the same paint color scheme, you do not need to fill out an architectural form.

If you are repainting with a new color scheme, you must send a COMPLETED ACC FORM to erik@snakeriverhoa.com. Be sure to describe the plan (where each color will go, i.e. trim, main, etc.) plus any details, and include paint color swatches and brand/color names. The Architectural Committee will evaluate and respond quickly. The ACC form can be found on the Documents pull-down menu at the top of the page or by clicking here.


Structures, Landscape Changes, Fencing

The addition of ANY new structure, fencing, or major landscape change on the residential property MUST be approved by the ACC. This includes storage sheds, concrete/patio concrete/structures/covers, arbor/pergola/etc. The ACC Design & Landscape Standards document describes requirements, limitations, and process regarding these kinds of changes. You must send a completed ACC form to erik@snakeriverhoa.com. The Architectural Committee will evaluate and respond quickly.


Parking: Autos, Trucks, RVs, Trailers, Boats

Street/pavement Issues

Street maintenance/repairs/potholes, etc. in Saguaro Canyon are under the jurisdiction of the Ada County Highway Department (ACHD). This includes the street storm drains in the streets. Contact erik@snakeriverhoa.com with any issues.


Report any emergencies to 911!

It is also our responsibility as home owners to report anything that appears to violate any terms of our CC&Rs, so it can be addressed quickly. We owners, as well as the Board and Snake River HOA want to keep our properties and common areas within the subdivision looking at their peak!
