Posted to Association News by Adam Rosen

CCMC is pleased to announce Dick Rosenhagen as the new community manager of Vistancia. He succeeds Craig Pustejovsky, who will transition to his new role as vice president for client fulfillment in the Western Division.

As Vistancia’s community manager, Dick will look to expand upon and create lasting relationships by engaging with residents, the Board of Directors and the developer. “I’m excited to become a part of the Vistancia family,” he said. “I look forward to contributing to the lasting success of this beautiful community.”

Dick’s tenure with CCMC began in 2005 as the club director at Estrella. For the past four years, he has served as the community manager at Toscana at Desert Ridge, a luxury condominium association in north Phoenix. Dick brings 13 years of professional experience to his new role. His various leadership positions have included every aspect of community management including facilities management, operations, lifestyle programming and site-based service.

Originally from Cheney, Kansas, Dick earned a bachelor’s degree from Wichita State University and is currently working on his master’s degree from the University of Nebraska. He is recognized as a Certified Arizona Association Manager (CAAM), Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA) and a Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM). 

“Dick brings a wealth of knowledge and leadership skills which makes him the perfect choice to lead Vistancia,” said Western Division President Delores Ferguson. “He has excelled in his roles at CCMC and I am confident he will work well with the site team and community members to continue Vistancia’s success as a premier community in Arizona.”

Dick currently resides in Peoria with his wife Brandi and two cocker spaniels, Rocky and Husker. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, golf, and Nebraska football.

The Pesky Problem: Weeds

Posted to Landscaping Tips by Adam Rosen

It’s time to get proactive about weeds! We all know that dealing with weeds can be a pesky chore when maintaining your yard. At DLC Resources, we apply pre-emergent herbicides in order help prevent various weeds from coming up in the common areas throughout The Villages. You can do the same in your own backyard!

Granular pre-emergent is a good option for homeowners and can be purchased online or at your local hardware or garden stores. You can also contact local companies to come out and do the work for you. However, spreading pre-emergent yourself is a simple process; granular pre-emergent gets spread the same way you would spread seed or fertilizer.

In order to be effective, pre-emergent needs to be watered down in order for it to seep into the ground and prevent the weeds from germinating. Right now is the perfect time to spread pre-emergent because of the rains we are receiving. However, if Mother Nature throws a curve ball and we don’t get the expected rainfall at this time of year, you can mimic the process by watering the pre-emergent in with a hose. Just remember to follow your product’s instruction label.

If applied in the next few months, pre-emergent will help reduce the weed population you receive in the spring, saving you from pulling weeds instead of enjoying the good weather.
