Keeping Bear Valley residents
informed and involved.

President’s Message

It is a privilege to serve as President of the BVRI Board and work with 14 other committed and well-informed Board members. As individuals, and as a Board, we are dedicated to support the betterment of the Bear Valley community that we all love so much.

You have told us that communication of community news that affects homeowners is important to you. The comprehensive BVRI Website is the most frequently updated location for information about all things Bear Valley, so please visit this site frequently to remain well informed about what is happening in your community. If you have made it to the President’s Message page, then you are pretty good at navigating this website already.

Bear Valley is very serious about managing its forest resources and BVRI takes the lead in that effort. A healthy forest is full of live, green, trees that provide beauty and some privacy; just try to envision Bear Valley with no trees. Many lots in Bear Valley still have too many trees on them, and they are competing with each other for the diminishing water resources. Recently BVRI made it easier to thin the smaller trees on your lot. Please do so before the beetle that is affecting trees so heavily in Avery and Arnold makes its way up to Bear Valley in huge numbers. Healthy trees are our best defense against the beetle and a huge loss of trees.  Please see the Forest information on this website.

BVRI is always looking for new Board members and community members willing to help for a single event. We will be increasing our efforts to recruit community volunteers for 30-minute sessions at the July Community Picnic. Any help you can provide will be much appreciated. If you attended the 2015 Picnic, you know that the event has been enlivened with a whole set of new family friendly games and contests. We hope everyone can attend this fun community get-together.

Enjoy Your Summer!
