Come see the big skies of Woodland Valley Ranch - located on Hwy 191 north of St. Johns, Arizona 

This site provides Woodland Valley Ranch property owners with important information about the ranch, such as board meeting announcements, and documents pertinent to the ranch owners.

Our goal in creating this website is to provide you, our associate member, the information needed to make the most of your property ownership at Woodland Valley Ranch. Within this site you will find networking links, allowing us all to be as involved in the WVR community as we see fit and giving us opportunities to get to know our neighbors. 

Please stop by often!

Right now, most roads on the ranch need MAJOR attention somewhere. There are many individual side roads off of main roads that are in poor or impassable shape.

If you do not have to absolutely be on the roads, don't. If you must be on the roads, have a capable, reliable, 4x4, off-road driving skills and the common sense to know when you are in over your head. Anything less, and you are setting yourself up for disaster.

The Rincon valley was horrendous when I drove it on the 29th. Many roads are impassable unless using an ATV or side by side.

  • The entire length of Zachary is wiped out.
  • Holly is wiped out at the South end.
  • Old Meadow Crossing is nearly wiped out for the second time.
  • South of the Blanco Wash and North of the Carrizo wash is cut off.
  • The Carrizo wash crossings will not be passable for MONTHS.
  • A dozen-plus vehicle rescues this past ten days.
  • People have stayed in hotels in town.
  • People have missed work.
  • Some folks are running low on supplies.

This has happened in the past, is happening now, and will happen again, and again, and again.

There are more storms brewing, and it is predicted to be a long heavy monsoon season.

In all of this, your preparedness is paramount. Your education on supplies, alternate routes, where your neighbors are, and who to look after is your number one resource.

None of this alleviates the POAs responsibility to get the roads back into shape as soon as practical. But the POA board only has a certain amount of capacity. They know these rains are devastating, and they will repeat during the monsoon season. The POA owes each individual owner the opportunity to access their property, as do they owe each owner the due diligence to spend your POA funds in a manner that maximizes your benefit.

To that end, the POA Board of Directors is working with the road contractor and gathering the condition of the roads as we can and as they change. They are going out when conditions are good for driving and assessing the roads. We are communicating, prioritizing, and committing to action as soon as practical. Unfortunately, we will not be able to meet every need or want. We cannot go back and get anyone more prepared. We cannot make anyone a better driver in terrible conditions. We cannot improve the capability of your vehicle. It is all of those things combined that will get you through this mess. The POA board has a limited capacity to improve the situation. The roads can be passable and still treacherous. You have more control over the improvement of the situation than the POA does.

WVR Well Information

 

On October 19, 2019 a New Well Hose Box with LOCK was installed at the Woodland Valley Ranch Convenience Well.

To obtain a Key to the Well hose box, you will need to confirm property ownership by providing documentation of ownership. You will need: The 8 digit Apache County parcel number and Lot number, documentation that shows you to be the owner of record (if not on the Apache County Assessor’s website), and Drivers license or State ID card for verification. The Apache County Assessor’s Office is slow to update their website so this is why we ask.

Keys may be obtained in person or mailed to the property owner address of record. Please contact the following WVR POA Board member to arrange having a key issued.

d.duff@woodlandvalleyranchaz.com, Member at Large, Well Operations

Alternate Contact: wvrboard@woodlandvalleyranchaz.com

Any member currently delinquent in their POA dues, will have to resolve the delinquency with the POA Board prior to having a Well key issued.

When traveling throughout the ranch, remember to leave all gates in the position you find them. It is critical to keep closed gates closed after you pass through them and if you find gates open, leave them open.
