Important Notice Concerning EE Park Fire Pit
From Dean Hess, Head of Common Areas:
"Due to the ongoing
drought conditions and based on conversations with the Green
Valley Fire Department, the new fire
pit in Esperanza Park should not be used until after the hoped
for monsoon season. With the dry condition of buffle
grass, shrubs and trees in the arroyo running alongside
Esperanza Blvd, the chance of a fire is too great. The EE HOA
Board's Common Areas Committee will draft a set of guidelines
for using the fire pit. The fire pit will be remade to be in
compliance with Pima County's regulations for outdoor fire pits
being no wider in diameter than 3 feet. To reiterate, until
further notice, please remember that the Esperanza Park fire pit
should not be used."

our EE community, contact Jackie
Rautio at 269-7864. Tickets to the tour will be sold
to residents of EE and their guests.
