Spring is here and our neighborhoods are filled with more Service Members, family members, and pets taking advantage of the warmer weather. Corvias Military Living is asking our residents to please pay attention to posted speed limits and traffic rules as they drive through family housing. The speed limit and traffic rules in housing are designed to give the average driver the time and space needed to stop and avoid a tragedy.
Garrison is actively encouraging community members to pick up trash that they see around post. We would like to extend this initiative to our communities as well. We know that many of our residents help keep the community looking great by helping us pick up trash in and around the neighborhood. We know that it is frustrating walking outside your front door to find that trash blew into your yard and/or someone littered. While it may not be your trash, we ask that you help us keep your communities looking great by picking it up and disposing of it properly.
Summer will be here all too soon, which means higher temperatures. It is a good idea to test your air conditioner this month to ensure that it is operating properly. Also, please be sure to check your A/C filters. If they need to be replaced, please stop by the community center for replacement filters.
Thank you for your continuing service to our great nation. If you have any questions please call your community center.
Your community calendar can help you stay up-to-date on trash, recycling, lawn care, resident events and community activities.
You can even sync your community calendar with a personal Google calendar by clicking on the +Google button on the bottom right-hand corner of the calendar.

Do you want to make some extra money by selling belongings that you no longer need or want? Do you like finding great bargains just down the street? Now is your chance! Host a yard sale in your own yard on Saturday, April 16 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. In the event of inclement weather, the yard sale will be held on Saturday, April 30 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. The use of free standing signs is encouraged. We appreciate if you would refrain from taping, stapling or otherwise securing signage to street signs and light posts.
April is Month of the Military Child. During this month, we take time to recognize the sacrifices of our military children, and celebrate their strength, courage and resiliency. Our youngest heroes serve by adapting to frequent moves, change of schools, parental deployments, and life transitions.
In conjunction with Month of the Military Child, Purple Up! is an initiative calling the community to show support for children in military families. You can do this by wearing the color purple on April 8th. Why purple? Purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is a combination of Army green, Marine red, and Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard blue.
Corvias Military Living would like to salute our military children and show appreciation for all that they do!
Spouses of active-duty service members are eligible to apply for $5,000 Educational Grants for college. Applications are due May 5 and are available at corviasfoundation.org.
Army Emergency Relief also maintains two scholarships that provide financial assistance to eligible dependents pursuing their first undergraduate degree. The Spouse Education Assistance Program is designed to support spouses while the MG James Ursano Scholarship Program supports dependent children. Scholarship applications are accepted from January 2 to May 1 each year for assistance for the following academic year. Applicants can access the applications at www.aerhq.org.
Have you tried to call a work order in but had to leave a message because the office staff is assisting another resident? We know this can be frustrating. In an effort to improve the way in which work orders are called in, we have implemented a 24/7, 365 days dedicated work order answering service.
The utilization of a dedicated answering service strictly for work orders has successfully been in place for the last few years at our Corvias Military Living Air Force Bases. We look forward to seeing those same results and making the work order process more efficient and convenient for you - our residents. The new work order hotline will be implemented on the following dates:
April 4, 2016
Ste Mere Eglise
April 11, 2016
Clubhouse at Linden Oaks
Lodge at Linden Oaks
April 18, 2016
Corvias offers residents several convenient ways to submit maintenance service requests. Residents may submit their work orders to the Corvias Community Office in any of the following ways:
- Phone: 1-866-206-1365 - available 24/7
- E-mail: email via your community center email address
- Website: bragg.corviasmilitaryliving.com
- In-person at the Community Office:
The Community Centers are open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Please visit our website for Saturday and holiday hours.
If you have not already, you will be receiving a magnet in the mail with the new work order hotline number for your convenience. We appreciate your patience during this transition and encourage you to follow up with the Corvias Community Office on any outstanding work requests to ensure they have not been lost through the transition.
Thank you again for allowing Corvias Military Living to meet your family's housing needs during your time at Fort Bragg.
Let us start Spring off with a healthy lawn! Brickman will start mowing lawns in April. Please refer to your community calendar for your community schedule.
In order to prepare:
- Please ensure that all of your personal items are picked up from the lawn on your designated mowing days. This will help to ensure that the mowing team is effective in their work.
- Please ensure that all dog waste is maintained and if you have a fence, please ensure the gate is unlocked.
- If you would like to spruce up your yard for the beginning of Yard of the Month competitions, we provide grass seed, along with mulch at our Warehouse. These items are available on Friday’s between the hours of 2:00 and 4:15pm. The limit for grass seed is 2 lbs. and mulch is three 2 cubic foot bags of hardwood mulch. If additional quantity is needed please contact your community center.
It is that time to get out and enjoy the wonderful weather, let’s ensure relaxing on the lawn is on your list!
Don’t miss the 24th annual Children’s Fest at the Fort Bragg Fairgrounds on Saturday, April 23. Gates will open at the Fort Bragg Fairgrounds at 10 a.m. Gates will close at 4 p.m. First 500 kids receive a free t-shirt. The event will offer games, kiddie jump tower, climbing wall, carnival rides, and prize drawings. For more information, please visit http://www.fortbraggmwr.com/.
All Corvias family housing pools will open on Friday, May 27. Please visit your community’s website for the Corvias community pools’ hours and rules.
All Corvias pools are free of charge for on-post residents to use. Don’t forget your pool pass and military ID! Replacement pool passes are available at your Community Center. Each household is welcome to bring a maximum of four guests.
Young children may wear Coast Guard-approved life vests. Please note that the following are not permitted in Corvias pools:
- Inflatable rafts
- Water wings
As the warmer weather is approaching and we start preparing our families for fun activities in the sun, many of us may decide to purchase a pool for the kids to play in their backyard. Please remember if you are purchasing a pool that:
- Only small, well-maintained wading pools are permitted. Wading pools must be 12 inches or less in height and no more than 10-feet wide.
- Wading pools must be positioned in the backyard on grassy areas
- Wading pools must be emptied daily and removed when not in use.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to your Community Center.
If every American recycled just one-tenth of their newspapers, we could save about 25 million trees each year.
