Paving Project Alert – Sunset Boulevard from Royal Street to Lindeke Street

Commencing July 23, 2018, the City of Spokane will repave Sunset Boulevard between the intersections of Royal St. and Lindeke Street.  South Lindeke is essentially the extension of Government Way as it intersects with Sunset Highway.  The construction will go up Sunset Hill past the turnoff to Indian Canyon G.C. The $2,500,000.00 renovation will reduce the street from four vehicle lanes to three lanes and one bicycle strip.  The road will remain open during construction.  More information on the project  is available at the City’s web page.

Board and Officer Positions – Repainting River Run Houses

The Board and Officer positions are listed below:

  • At large, Dan Arch, cell: 509-869-6687

The CC&R Compliance and Architectural Committee consists of Dan Arch, Ed Murphy, Tim Murphy and Stephanie Klein. All architectural and CC&R questions/requests should be directed to Tim Murphy.

Note: We have seen several homes being repainted this year and the Architectural Committee requests that any house or trim colors differing from the originals be approved beforehand as outlined in the CC&R’s. Thanks!

Non-architectural and general questions/problems should be directed to Bob Bordonaro. If necessary, Bob will enlist current Board members to handle these situations. Other Board members who receive inquiries will forward them to Bob with the goal of informing you how the request is being dealt with. We will do our best to address each issue in a timely manner, but there may be times that we cannot address a question until the next Board meeting.

Please let us know how we can serve you best.

Reminder: Park Usage

We have done some checking regarding HOA liability regarding organized sports activities in our parks. All organized activities must be approved in advance to satisfy our insurance requirements. Please contact Bob Bordonaro and allow plenty of time prior to the first event.

Landscaping

Greenleaf has always provided River Run Residents with a 5% discount on mowing, irrigation and lawn application services. Their contact number is: 509-536-2885.

Due to the fact that Avista has an easement between the trail and the residents on Sandbrook, any planting off property must be approved in advance and current/prospective homeowners bear all maintenance and removal responsibilities.

River Run Website

Our Webmaster has made some significant improvements to our website. Please check it out! And, while you are there, take the time to register…

 Basketball Hoops Not Permitted On City Streets

Basketball hoops left on city streets are a violation of Spokane Municipal Code, Section 12.02.0737, “Obstruction of Public Right of Way.” Basketball hoops are not allowed on City of Spokane streets at any time. A complaint to the City may be filed anonymously, but the complainant must have a view of the obstruction.

The City may cause the removal or destruction of such obstruction of the public way by notice of violation and may issue a civil infraction or bill for reimbursement of costs incurred. Neighbors have been fined. Note that this is not a specific violation of River Run CC&Rs, so this is not an HOA Board intervention

Animal Issues

SCRAPS handles animal complaints, pet lost and found, pet licensing, etc. Here is the link to its website

There is also a link to an online complaint form available on this site.  SCRAPS telephone number is: 509-477-2532.

The CC&Rs allow off-leash, well-behaved dogs under voice control on the River Run trails, but the sidewalks are still under City of Spokane jurisdiction (leashes required). Please keep assertive/aggressive dogs on leash at all times.

The CC&Rs specifically prohibit annoying or nuisance issues on anyone’s property. This includes excessive dog barking. Please be a conscientious dog owner/neighbor and be mindful of your dog’s barking.  Remember, your dog may bark when you are not home to hear it.

In addition, there is a CC&R limit of no more than two usual and ordinary household pets.

Trailers/RVs

The River Run CC&Rs allow trailers and RVs street/driveway access for up to 48 hours. There are more trailers around in the summer months. Please do not abuse this and be communicative with your neighbors.

If you are renting your home out, please make sure your tenants are aware of all pertinent CC&Rs.

Garage Sales 2018

We had a homeowner inquiring about garage sales. They are not prohibited in the CC&R’s, but if you plan to have one, please inform/involve your neighbors and limit it to two days. Thanks!
