DRIVING AND SAFETY ADVISORY
We urge you to continue to stay home and off our roadways to allow essential and emergency vehicles to move about the Village.
Road conditions worsened overnight. Our roads are hazardous and slippery. The rise in temperature today will not be enough to make all our minor roads safe to travel. Major roads should improve when the sun comes out but do not expect complete clearing.
Yesterday, POA maintenance crews removed as much snow and ice from our roads as possible. The Public Services Department encourages everyone to stay off the roads during wintry weather. Please do not risk driving. We need our roads kept clear for emergency vehicles. Road closings and other important information will be posted on our Active Advisories page and will be shared with radio station KVRE 92.9 FM.
Be mindful of icy and hazardous conditions around your home. There is a high risk of slips and falls due to the icing.
These roads are still closed. Again, avoid driving anywhere today.
– Fresno Road between Ponferrada Way and Carmona Road
– Barcelona Road between Tomino Way and Paso Way
– Balearic Road between Coronado Drive and Reata Way
SANITATION PICKUP AND RECYCLING
Sanitation crews are busy clearing roads today. Sanitation trucks will begin THURSDAY pickups tomorrow (Saturday) where conditions are safe enough to do so. We may not be able to pick up all Thursday locations on Saturday. Thank you for your patience as we catch up. Special Friday pickups are postponed to Friday, February 11.

If you lose power at your home, and you have no neighbors with power on who can accommodate you during a power outage, you may go to one of our four fire stations. If you need transportation to a fire station or other warming center, call the non-emergency police numbers listed above.
