The Snow Removal Operations season begins with November 1st, every year.
The AVMSC almost 9 miles of roads are mostly sloped, narrow and curvy.
The only snow removal vehicles allowed on the Villas roads are the snow removal equipped vehicles registered to the Company.
No other snow removal or clean up vehicles are allowed or authorized to work on the Villas Roads, with no exceptions.
No snow blowers, leaf blowers, bobcats or other snow removal equipment is permitted on the Villas roads.
No snow dumping or disposal of the snow is permitted on the Villas Roads. Do not move your snow berms into the roads, after the snow plow passes.
You will create hazardous conditions on our traffic roads, as those snow patches will cause icy conditions, and the cinder spread will be covered.
The Villas has a scheduled snow plowing system: first the larger, connecting roads are plowed and then, the plows move onto the narrower, top roads.
Once the plow passes, it will not return to clean up the snow dumped into the roads by people who dispose of their berms, into the roads.
Such violations will be assigned and charged $250.00 per occurrence. Snow removal on private property is the property owners’ responsibility.
Berms are a product of clearing roads and cannot be avoided. AVMSC does not have a berm removal program. Removal of windrows/berms from driveways, decks and private parking areas are the responsibility of the property owners, at all times.
Any and all stalled vehicles need to be removed and relocated, so as not to interfere with the proper snow plowing operations and clear vehicle access at all times, included but not limited to Emergency and Utility vehicles.
There will be no parking at the end of the cul-de-sacs, as large quantities of snow are piled up there by the company snow plows.
Any and all vehicles parked, stalled or stored on the Villas Roads or with the roads right of way, need to be removed and parked safely on private property, at all times.
Vehicles which are found to be non-compliant are subject to removal by the Company assigned Towing Company and all costs of towing and/or storage will be charged to the Owners of the vehicles.
The AVMSC Shareholders as property owners have the fiduciary duty to disclose to their tenants, family members, visitors, and any other property residents that the AVMSC has such Rules and Regulations that need to be respected with no exception.
The AVMSC Shareholders are also urged to obtain the acknowledgement in writing of their Residents as to such Rules and Regulations in regards to Parking and Snow Removal Policies. Should the AVMSC establish that the property Residents were not properly notified and their acknowledgement and approval of the Company Rules and Regulations was not obtained by the property owners (the Shareholders), any and all notices, fines, impound costs, penalties will be assigned and ultimately charged to the registered Property Owner responsible with the property occupied by the non-complying Residents.
AVMSC will NOT be responsible for any damages to any vehicles or vehicles’ attachments stopped, parked, stored or stalled on the Villas Roads and/or the roads’ right of way. Orange cones or any other flagging devices will not be considered safe and will not create an assigned or permitted parking area.
Commercial trucks and/or any other commercial vehicles are forbidden from parking on Villas roads and in general on the mountain roads in San Bernardino County.
DO NOT PARK YOUR VECHICLE, WHERE IT WILL BLOCK SNOWPLOWS OR WHERE SNOW, ICE OR CINDERS CAN BE THROWN OR PUSHED AGAINST IT, BY THE SNOWPLOW OR EQUIPMENT. COUNTY CODE PROVIDES THAT EVERY VEHICLE INTERFERING WITH SNOW REMOVAL OR CINDER SPREADING OPERATIONS WILL BE CITED WITH A MAXIMUM FINE OF $250.00 PER VEHICLE, PER OCCURRENCE AND EVENTUALLY BE TOWED AWAY.
** Please be advised that snow, as well as any other debris intentionally dumped on public or private property is a criminal matter and the respective ownership entity may file complaints and/or charges against the offending party.
AVMSC utilizes our own snow plows and our own employees, with the exception of some roads that may or may not be contracted out. All vehicles need to be moved and parked out of the way of the snow plows at all times. A set-back of four feet from the edge of the pavement is required for snow plowing, and this is known as the “Right of Way”. Any vehicle within the Right of Way will be subject to being towed at the owner’s expense.
No snow can be dumped on, or shoveled into the roads at any time, as this can be hazardous for traffic.
