Look out for the Army Survey that will be emailed beginning May 5th. This important survey will help ensure the continued success of the RCI program in meeting your needs, and will help guide the Army and Corvias in the development of future improvements to our homes and services. This survey will be administered through a third party, CEL & Associates, Inc. (CEL). The survey results are confidential, so please express your true opinions and thoughts. All Fort Riley residents who complete the survey will be entered to win a weekly drawing of $250 and one grand prize of $1500!
American Pool Service will be managing the Corvias Military Living community pools again this season. Residents will need to show their pool pass and military I.D. before entering the pool area. Families who do not have a pool pass are encouraged to visit your Community Office. A pool use addendum will need to be signed to receive your pool pass. Community pools are for Corvias resident use only and one pass is issued per family.
Pools will open May 28 and operate on the following schedule until school begins: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. After school begins through Sept 7 the pools will be open from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. American Pool Service reserves the right to close the pool for inclement weather or pool maintenance. Please see the 2016 pool schedule and pool rules below: Read more…

Irwin Army Community Hospital will be holding a Summer Safety Day on Friday, May 20th from 9am to 3pm in the front parking area of the hospital. The event will promote summer safety and injury prevention through education and interactive displays from State, local & Fort Riley agencies.
Fort Riley Garrison’s annual Yard of the Month program begins this month. The program recognizes residents in family housing who are making a special effort to enhance the appearance of their yard. Each community will have a winning Yard of the Month. From these five winning yards, one is also selected as post-wide Yard of the Month. Residents are encouraged to nominate their yard or the yard of a neighbor by contacting your Community Office before the first of each month. Read more…
Lawns and flower beds will be judged using the following criteria:
- Driveway free of grease, oil and litter
- Yard free of trash and debris
- Flower beds free of weeds
- Vegetation must be natural
- Yards must be in full compliance with requirements set forth in the Resident Responsibility Guide
Judging for Yard of the Month will be conducted during the first week of the month, beginning in June, by installation selected personnel.
The Yard of the Month winning family from each community will receive a recognition letter from the Garrison Commander, temporary Yard of the Month signage for the home, and a prize. For more information on this program, please contact your Community Office.
Sewer blockages have become an issue in the neighborhoods, we are asking for your help. In an effort to keep your community a clean and healthy place to live, please do not flush any inappropriate materials.
Inappropriate materials include but are not limited to paper towels, diapers, baby wipes/flushable wipes, personal hygiene products, toys and any material other than toilet paper.
Even though a product may be classified as biodegradable and/or flushable material, it may still cause sewer stoppages and could lead to other plumbing problems. Please put products such as these in your trash. In addition please do not dispose of large amounts of grease in sinks as this can also create plumbing backups.
If you have a basement and store items in it, personal items should be stored on pallets or off the floor. This will help limit damage to personal belongings, in the event of basement flooding.
We thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this matter. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your Community Office.
Don’t forget! Applications for the Corvias Foundation $5,000 Educational Grants for spouses of active-duty service members are due Thursday, May 5th. The application is available online at corviasfoundation.org.
