There have been a number of reports from residents who periodically hear a deep repeating bass sound in River Run. Sometimes it occurs early in the evening, or during the morning hours. The reports are that it sounds like a drum beating, but louder and deeper. If anyone knows the source of the sounds, drop us a message at the contact page at the web site.
[UPDATED]. Several River Run residents have reported that the noise is actually drum sounds originating from the Life Center Foursquare Church. It appears that the church band conducts evening and before service Sunday practices, and the bass sounds produced by those practices carries throughout much of River Run during these practices.
River Run has been selected to be a host site for the Spokane Home Builders Association Home Show. Both Ted Miller and Dave Largent will have a home each in the show. Ted will showcase a home at 1108 N. River Ridge Blvd. listed at $650,000 and Dave’s home can be toured at 1110 N. Inland. It is listed at $429,900. Both homes sold during construction, although each can be toured during the show. The Home Show runs for two weekends: September 28 – 30 and October 5 – 7. Show hours are 10:00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.
Jim Powers, of Century 21, will be host at both homes. You are invited to come by and tour both homes anytime during the show. There is no cost to view the homes and you can enter to win some great prize packages from Fred’s Appliance and California Closets that are to given away at the end of the show. We do expect that there will be additional traffic in the area during the shows.
Don’t be alarmed if you notice construction vehicles on the acreage bordered by N. Government Way and West Ft. Wright Drive in River Run in the coming weeks. The acreage is being evaluated for development for additional residential lots. Further information will be posted as it becomes available.
With Summer now here, more families, including young children, are outside their homes, and using the sidewalks and streets of River Run. We ask all those who use the River Run streets to strictly observe the posted 25 miles per hour speed limit. We have received several reports of drivers driving too fast on the main streets, such as River Run Blvd., and also on River Vista Street. Bicyclists are also asked to slow their speeds when moving down hill through the subdivision. Thank you for observing the speed limits.
There have been a number of reports of residents parking campers, mobile homes, recreational vehicles, commercial vehicles, and trucks other than a standard size pickup truck, boats, or similar equipment on River Run streets and driveways. The CCRs prohibit this in section 6.2:
Vehicle and Equipment Restrictions. No trailer, camper, mobile home, recreational vehicle, commercial vehicle, bus, truck (other than standard size pickup truck), inoperable automobile, boat, or similar equipment, and no vehicle, which is in an extreme state of disrepair, shall be permitted outside of a garage. Provided, however, vehicles and equipment may be moved onto driveways or streets on a transitory and temporary basis (48 hours maximum) for purposes of loading and unloading of passengers or personal property.
Please respect the subdivision and your neighbors by observing this restriction.
