Getting Ready Already

By Dale Dauten, Syndicated Columnist

As long as you don’t look at the outdoor temperature, it’s starting to feel like Fall here in the desert. The school buses are rumbling around town, the Halloween merchandise is appearing in stores (and you know they’ll start playing Christmas music any time now), and the folks at Silveridge are busy planning for the best season ever.

We caught up with George Igualt, head of the management company, to ask what to expect. “For one thing,” he told us, “the park is going to look better than ever. The first thing you’ll see is that we’ve had the walls repainted – the entry, the guard shack, the walls by pickle ball and lawn bowling – the entire perimeter.”



“We also decided that the level of landscape maintenance just wasn’t good enough,” George added. “So we ended our contract with the company we’d had, moved it in-house and upped our standards. We have a new team that can devote more hours a week to the landscape and the parks are going to look top-notch.”

Tim Furlong, Maintenance Manager, praised the new landscape professionals that he’s added and sent us the photos below, saying, “You’ll be seeing a lot of these two around the park. That’s Isaac Moran in the white shirt and Alfredo Coon in the black.”

In addition to improvements in landscaping, George is looking forward to the resurfacing of the park’s streets. This is scheduled for later in September or into October because, as George informed us, “You have to wait for the right combination of warm days and cool nights so that the material fills in just right.”

And, of course, there is renewed main building and the finishing touches are being added to the lobby and office area. Everyone is eager for all the residents to return and see the renewed Silveridge.

Finally, we recently came across some aerial photos taken a few years back and we decided to include a few we think are sure to make you look forward to coming back.
