The past week or so in Sunriver has been cold! While out showing property in Sunriver this past Saturday I was stomping my boots, trying to get some warmth back in to my frozen feet and thought to myself, “this is the coldest it has been in the past few years.” We all survived the frigid temperatures but all commented to each other that it felt good to get warmed back up!
On 12/10/13 The Sunriver Owners Association posted the following message & picture on their website:
“Winter is upon us and Sunriver has already experienced a bone-chilling -27 below zero on Dec. 7, with daytime temps in single digits and low teens.
Freezing conditions can lead to frozen pipes. If your home is unoccupied, be sure the thermostat is set warm enough to keep your pipes from freezing, or if your pipes are heat-taped, be sure it is plugged in and operational. Inside your home, cupboard/closet doors can be left open to expose pipes to warmer interior air.
This Sunriver home was only discovered Dec. 11 by someone driving by. Water was leaking from the second story, creating a wall of ice.
You can make arrangements with a home service or property management company to check on your home throughout the winter months.
Occupied or not, your crawl space vents should be closed and vent plugs in place. Outside faucets should also have foam covers in place.
As your owners association, we try to provide you with information you might need to protect and enjoy your Sunriver home, but we do not provide property management or security services. The following local businesses provide home check and/or security services. Registration with SROA is not required for many of the services they provide. We are aware of them through various sources, but listing them here does not in any way imply endorsement by SROA, and the list may not be complete. If you are unable to ask a friend or neighbor to check your home, you may want to contact one of them. (You can see the SROA’s full message and contractor list by clicking here)”
Fall 2013 news from the SROA…
SROA Fall Newsletter 2013
Whew! What a summer we’ve had in Sunriver! Despite a
few rain and thunder storms that rolled through (one bolt of lightning took out
a tree at Meadow Road and Lodgepole Lane), owners and visitors have taken
advantage of some great weather. SHARC has been filled with aquatic revelers
and Sunriver Resort is touting its best summer ever! With Labor Day recognized
as the “unofficial” end of the tourist season, things should start to
quiet down as we roll into fall.
Here is some news that might be important to
- -Sept. 16 marks the official first day of SROA’s new general manager, Hugh
Palcic. Although he has been with the association for 15 years, stop by and say
“hello” if you haven’t yet met Hugh.
- -River access survey available: SROA is seeking member comments/ideas on
river access and a proposed watercraft launch near HOLA! restaurant. Sunriver
Resort plans to close the existing boat launch at the marina after 2014,
leaving no launch/take out locations in Sunriver. The brief survey can be found
on the SROA website at www.sunriverowners.org>News&Notices>Boat
Ramp & Park Proposal.
- –Deschutes County appraisers will be going door-to-door starting in
September to inspect and appraise approximately 3,500 Sunriver homes over the
next 12 months. Their findings will be combined with sales data to update home
market values and calculate property taxes for your 2014-2015 property tax
statement. A residential walk-through, if you choose to allow the appraisers
inside, should take about 15 minutes. If home interiors are not available to
them, they will take measurements outside. All inspectors will travel in teams
of two, carry ID and be driving well-marked county vehicles. The last county
inspection in Sunriver was in the 1990s. For more information, contact Theresa
Maul, Deschutes County Assessor’s office chief appraiser at 541-388-6508.
