Reminder- Feeding of Wild birds or animals except Hummingbirds is Prohibited in CHOA

As you know, we have seen an increase in the number of wild animals in Charbonneau- there have been recent reports and sightings of a Cougar, Coyotes, Skunks, Racoons, Rats and Mice.

In order to try to stem this trend, we want to help eliminate as much of their food sources as possible.  Therefore, we are asking that each CHOA neighbor refrain from feeding any animals and/or birds anywhere in CHOA or around your home except for Hummingbirds.  This includes inside your courtyard also.

In addition, please feed your pets indoors only and don’t leave them unsupervised outside.

Thanks in advance for your help here to make CHOA a safer neighborhood.

Please note new additions to CHOA Emergency Preparedness Team

CHOA Welcomes Lady Bugs

Please note that Garron Grounds has placed Lady Bug Bags in the large leaf Maples and Linden trees for aphid control.   The “ladies” can eat up to 50 aphids a day and are a safe and natural method for aphid control.

The lady bugs are placed in the trees in the evening hours in small bags.  They move out of the bags into their new homes where the food supply is plentiful.   So if you see the little bags in the trees please don’t remove them.  

Please note that the heater for the Spa in Pool B is not working

Please note that the heater for Spa B has broken.  The Spa is still usable but will not be heated.  We anticipate it taking a couple of weeks to repair.  Good news is the weather is planning to be nice during this time so perhaps a cooler Spa will be refreshing.  We are working hard to get this back up and running.

If you have any questions and/or need more info, please contact Steve Chinn at 503-312-0927 or

Landscape irrigation water not available for a few weeks

Please note that the CHOA water for irrigation landscaping is provided by the Golf Course.  They are not quite ready yet for watering this season.  Please see note below from Chris Bensel -General Manager

“Hello everyone,

Hope you all had a great fall and winter.  As we approach the irrigation season, I would like to assure everyone that we are taking as many strides as we can to improve the overall health of the facility.

At this time, we will not be able to deliver water for approximately three weeks.


Last month we started and completed the annual treatment of the main irrigation lake for pond weed.  During that time, we did a complete and overall assessment of all 9 pumps.  At that time, we found out the 3 of them are not running properly and not delivering the correct amount of pressure. Those are being pulled and repaired immediately.

At the same time, we have taken on the crucial step of replacing the main intake screens in the main lake.  This project is a vital step for us to improve the water quality and should benefit everyone that is supplied irrigation water.   We are planning that this project will be completed around 3 three weeks and we will have full service at that time.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel to reach me anytime”.
