Exterior painting is set to begin the week of June 17th. Buildings 105, 106 & 110 are slated to be painted through July.
There will initially be repairs to deteriorated wood & siding surfaces. Then prime & paint coatings of the exterior.
More information is forthcoming; residents please pay attention to notices that will be issued, for important news as work progresses.
If you will be out of town during that time, please make sure a trusted neighbor will have access to keys for moving any cars that may block equipment.
As always, please respect the work done on building exteriors. For example, do not let children use 'sidewalk chalk', which can stain painted surfaces, to draw on the buildings.
Nature Village has launched as part of the Green Family Program "The Laundry Project" to reduce energy use from drying machines through air drying your clothes.
A family size drying rack is assigned to your apartment, so you can use it as long as you stay at the Village.
As part of the project, we are studying the usage patterns of the racks, in order to understand how it may affect the village population drying habits. Please, keep track of your laundry and drying. Your recordings are very important. We will collect this journal after one month of use. Thank you for taking part in this project.
We know how hard is to get organized and dispose of all your not longer needed belongings, that why we are sharing with you some helpful information, so you can have a more organized and environmentally friendly moving out process.
Please down load this electronic version or pick up one printed copy at the Village office.

Mozart's beloved opera, The Magic Flute, in a performance by the San Francisco Opera.

Why was the original set of Mozart's opera, The Magic Flute, inspired by the art of
Egypt? What does the secret freemason society have to do with the plot of this opera?
Why were Maurice Sendak, the children's book author, and Marc Chagall, the famous
painter so fascinated by this opera?
We will be exploring these questions, and also learn about politics, art, music,
science and fashion of Mozart's time. Students will be watching parts of different
opera productions of the Magic Flute, and also
making their own puppets and set designs. In addition to that, we will also be
developing our Magic Flute board game.

Bay area wide there is an ever increasing problem mice and rats, entering homes. Here at UVA we face the same problem. Over the past several years there have been complaints of rodents seen inside and outside of our buildings. In an effort to reduce the occurrence of these pests we encourage all of our residents to take the following steps:
1) Reduce the amount of items that are stored on your patio. Rodents are just like humans. They need a warm and secure place to live. Storage container, cardboard boxes, and unused furniture offer ideal places for mice and rats to establish a home. Removing these items will greatly reduce the likelihood of animals living on our patios.
2) If you have a storage closet located outside, please make certain that there are no food items stored within. Rodents have an excellent sense of smell and can detect food very easily. Removing any tasty treats will deny mice and rats what they want most – food.
3) When disposing of garbage please make certain that all trash is placed inside the dumpsters. Leaving food debris out in the open provides mice and rats an easy meal.
Miice and rats prefer to live outside. If you take the precautions listed above, rodents will be more inclinded to stay outside.
