There’s nothing like a relaxing day by the pool, but it will soon get even better. If you visit a Corvias community pool on Friday, July 11, 18, and/or 25, you and each of your guests will receive a FREE Freeze Pop at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m., while supplies last. Be sure to keep a look out for this tasty treat!
Due to the July 4th holiday, your lawn care day may be rescheduled for the week of June 30. Don’t forget to check your community calendar for your July 4th holiday make-up lawn care day. Please note that this schedule is weather dependent. If you have any questions or concerns about your lawn care, please do not hesitate to contact your Community Office.
For the first time, the Corvias-sponsored Yard-of-the-Month program has changed to extend throughout the year!
The Fort Bragg Garrison will recognize the contest in June and July (Summer Yard-of-the-Month), October (Fall Yard-of-the-Month), and December (Winter Yard-of-the-Month). Holiday decorations will be considered, though not mandatory, when judging in October and December.
The Yard-of-the-Month Program will reward those who make a special effort to improve their yard and beautify their home, while remaining in compliance with housing and post regulations. These regulations include Fort Bragg’s lawn watering guidelines as well as the regulations outlined in Corvias Military Living’s Resident Responsibility Guide. Please contact your Community Office for a copy of this guide.
In consideration of varying community sizes and home types, two to four Summer Yard-of-the-Month winners will be selected in each community for June and July. Of the June and July Yard-of-the-Month winners, one Yard of Excellence winner will be selected as the best of Fort Bragg. One winner will be named per community in October and December. Regardless of the month, each Yard-of-the-Month winner will receive a recognition letter from the Fort Bragg Garrison Commander, a Yard-of-the-Month sign to be displayed in front of the home, and gift certificates.
Judging and Rules:
1. Judging will be conducted on or around the 15th of the month. The Directorate of Public Works (DPW) will perform the judging and select winners. No Corvias employees will take part in judging.
2. To be eligible to participate, yards must be in full compliance with requirements set forth in the Corvias Military Living Resident Responsibility Guide.
3. June and July winners will be notified the following month. October and December winners will be notified in the same month as recognition. A resident may win only once during the 2014 Yard of the Month program.
As a reminder, it is illegal for individuals to set off large fireworks on Fort Bragg. This includes large fireworks purchased in South Carolina or other neighboring states. Instead of putting your family and your home in danger, please visit one of the many professional fireworks shows in the area this summer!
Have you ever wished you could be rewarded for telling your friends about the benefits of living on post? Now you can!
Refer a friend who meets on-post residency requirements and qualifies for a 3-bedroom Junior Enlisted or Senior Non-commissioned Officer home. When he/she signs a 12-month lease and moves into a 3-bedroom Junior Enlisted or Senior Non-commissioned Officer home, you will receive a referral reward of $150 for the first referral. A second referral will receive $200 and for a third referral you will receive $250. After the third referral, the cycle will start over.
New applicants must list the name and contact information (phone and permanent mailing address) of his or her referral source on the applicable online paperwork at the time of application. He/she may also provide the name and contact information of the referral source upon first visit or call to a Corvias Community or Leasing Center.
Previous Corvias residents are not eligible to be referred at this time. Additional restrictions may apply. For more information about our Refer-A-Friend Program, please contact your Corvias Community Office.
Fort Bragg emergency services can now be contacted by simply calling 911 from your cell phone, when you are located on Fort Bragg.

Your feedback is very important to us. Through your suggestions we find ways to improve our service for all residents. That’s why we’ve implemented a convenient way for residents to provide us with feedback!
Within seven days of a completed service request, you should receive a link to an online survey from firstname.lastname@example.org. While participation is voluntary, we hope that you will take just a few minutes to answer 10 questions about our performance. The survey is designed to help improve our customer service to you and your family.
We appreciate your feedback! Our goal is to provide the best homes, community, service and value to you. With your advice, Corvias Military Living can work to improve your experience.
We’re looking for more great residents like you, so we’re hosting Open Houses throughout the summer PCS season until August. We encourage you to invite your friends to attend these events and to become your new neighbors. For more information about these events and an updated list of dates, locations, and times, visit our website.
Having a pet is fun, but pet ownership also comes with many responsibilities. If you already have a family pet, or are thinking about getting one, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Care for your pet
Caring for your animal is the greatest responsibility of pet ownership. Your pet depends on you for basic needs, such as food, water, and shelter. To keep your animal healthy, make sure your pet is registered with the post veterinarian, is vaccinated, and gets annual check-ups.
Pets require your time and attention. Whether your pet requires a lot of care or is low maintenance, find time to spend with your pet. Brushing your pet is a great way to spend some time together and can reduce pet hair around the house.
Regularly exercise your pet to keep them happy and healthy. Going for a walk or playing around the house benefits both you and your pet. The Corvias Bark Parks, located on Bastogne Drive and on Linden Oaks Parkway, are great places for your dog to get some exercise and play with other dogs.
Dealing with pet waste is one of those topics that every pet owner must deal with but no one likes to talk about. The fact is that the majority of community and neighborhood pet problems result from the inappropriate handling of pet waste. In addition, pet waste is the greatest source of potential health risk for your pet and your family. Scoop litter boxes daily and clean them regularly. If your pet spends time outside your house, clean up waste from the yard.
For your pet’s wellbeing make sure you always follow the Pet Policy outlined in the Resident Responsibility Guide. For more information on pet ownership visit the American Veterinary Medical Association’s website.

The Bland family from Fort Bragg received a $2,000 grand prize travel voucher and an iPad Mini. Five other winners were selected and each received an iPad Mini.

Randolph Pointe is Fort Bragg’s only on-post apartment community for single and unaccompanied Senior NCOs and Officers. It is located near the North Post Commissary and PX on the corner of Randolph and Souter Streets at 2850 Compass Court. For more information or to schedule a tour for your single or unaccompanied service members, visit randolphpointe.com or call (910) 764-5008.
Heat pumps are widely used across the South and other temperate climates. During the summer, a heat pump absorbs heat from inside and releases it outside, cooling the interior in the process. Heat pumps in Fort Bragg homes are designed to keep the interior temperature 15 to 20 degrees below the outside temperature. Turning the thermostat lower will not lower the interior temperature below this 20 degree threshold.
This is completely normal and doesn’t mean that your cooling system isn’t working properly. In periods of extreme heat, you may need to take active steps to help your home maintain a comfortable temperature. Setting the fan switch on your thermostat to “auto”, and changing your air filter(s) every 30 days will help your home remain a comfortable temperature regardless of the season.
How can you beat the heat this summer? Avoid using heat generating appliances (clothes dryer, oven, and dishwasher) during the hottest part of the day.
The Live Army Green utility conservation program was created to encourage and reward energy conservation, so money collected to supplement utility costs does not increase Corvias’ profits. Instead, collected funds are invested back into Fort Bragg in the form of improvements such as playgrounds, renovations, Community Centers, and other amenities and services. For more information about Live Army Green, visit our website.
- If you want to cool off, lower your home’s temperature a few degrees at a time. If you drastically lower the temperature on your thermostat, it will not cool off your home faster. In fact, it will make your air conditioner work harder!
- Only wading/kiddie pools 12 inches or less in height and no more than 10 feet wide may be positioned in the back yard on grassy areas, and must be emptied daily and removed when not in use. An adult must supervise wading/kiddie pools at all times.
