Blade Signs

Vista Las Palmas, for city planning purposes is shaped like the letter “L”.  Up til now, the short side of the “L” - the area near Stevens Road north of Old Las Palmas and west of The Arrive hotel - has never had VLP blade signs. Seeing a need for greater neighborhood identity and inclusiveness, the board voted to remedy the shortcoming by appropriating money to acquire and install five new signs. Thanks to board member Robin Abrahams, who spearheaded the effort, the new blade signs will be installed at new locations throughout the neighborhood.

10K/5K/Santa Walk-Run/Bike Tours

We’re all aware that our neighborhood is an obvious first choice for events involving walks and runs due to the perfectly-located, quiet, safe and welcoming location.  Where we’ve run into issues is with the quantity of these city-sponsored events which can create safety hazards for both participants and our own residents pulling in and out of driveways, or street closures requiring detours.

In March, board members Robin Abrahams and Mike Ziskind met with the city’s event coordinator to share concerns and request more information on how many events are planned for next season. We suggested that any events include enough volunteers to keep participants safe and asked that any directional markings which are sprayed onto the street be removed upon an event’s conclusion.  

The City plans to communicate with us ahead of time about upcoming events. Watch our website for announcements.

Social Events

Our latest VLP social event was held Wednesday, March 21 at the new Mexican restaurant, Alebrije, on Palm Canyon Drive. Board members Amy Brinkman and Howard Hawkes organized the reception in record time and 55 residents attended. The food was delicious!

Our next casual mixer event is tentatively set for Tuesday, July 3rd @ Draughtsman and will simply be an informal meet-and-greet with cash bar. We will send out a reminder notice prior to the event. Our survey indicated a great deal of support for more social activities where we can meet our fellow neighbors, including weekend events, so we would like to plan a Saturday potluck for late summer/early fall.

Modernism Week VLP Home Tour

The VLPNO board is already working on logistics for our 2019 Modernism Week VLP home tour. Board member and tour chair Robin Abrahams has met with the Modernism Week planners and will be reaching out in the next few weeks for tour committee volunteers; homeowners who are willing to open their houses; and other neighbors who may be able to volunteer their expertise. If you expressed interest and gave us your contact information through the recent survey, we will contact you. If you have not yet indicated your interest to assist and would like to do so, please email Robin for further information: This email address is being protected from spambots.
