Sudden Valley Firewise Program – 2022

Sudden Valley Community Association will be hosting a Firewise program starting on July 11th, 2022.

Residents can take advantage of this program by having their tree branches placed in an accessible pile next to the roadway prior to the scheduled pickup time for their area. Piles of branches placed by the roadside after the scheduled pickup time will not be picked up and will be the property owners’ responsibility.

Recycle Disposal: Limbs are fed into a large wood chipping machine and the chips transported to a SVCA wood chip composting site. The chips will be made available free to residents to self-load on a first come basis.

Fireworks are Prohibited

Dear Sudden Valley Residents,

As the 4th of July holiday approaches, we’d like to remind residents that the use of fireworks anywhere in Sudden Valley is strictly prohibited. Fireworks are dangerous both for the user and the surrounding homes and forests. Sudden Valley is a place for all to enjoy tranquility and beauty, and the use of fireworks significantly negatively affects many members and the pet population in Sudden Valley.

The Association maintains a zero-tolerance regarding the use of fireworks. Therefore, Security will enforce this action and cite offenders under SVCA Rules & Regulation policy 1.4.

We appreciate members and guests who adhere to Sudden Valley rules and regulations, and we thank you. We hope you can celebrate with a barbecue, a picnic, a swim or even a paddle in the lake. Enjoy the holiday and Stay Safe.

Your support and understanding are greatly appreciated.

Face masks are strongly recommended

The Association is experiencing an extreme escalation in the spread of COVID-19 among staff. We are working closely with the Whatcom County Health Department for guidance. The individuals diagnosed with COVID-19 are in isolation, and the SVCA continues to adhere to guidance from the Washington State Department of Health. This includes appropriate mask-wearing, hand-sanitation, and physical distancing, where possible.

If you have visited any of the Clubhouse offices in the last week and are experiencing cold like symptoms, please consider getting tested.

Due to these circumstances beyond our control, we are working short-staffed. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
