Hello to everyone, we hope you are all enjoying your summer and getting ready for the cooler fall weather that’s on its way.
With so many new faces in our housing area, I wanted to take this opportunity to remind our new residents about our Corvias animal policies and the need to get your authorized pets registered with the Fort Bragg Vet Clinic. Corvias allows up to 2 animals in each household, subject to breed restrictions that prohibit American Pit Bull Terriers, Staffordshire Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Rottweiler, Doberman Pinscher, Chow Chow, Jackal, Coyote, Wolf, Wolf Hybrid or any dog that demonstrates a propensity for dominance or aggressive behavior. Additionally, any breed prohibited under XVIII ACFBR 40-5 is also prohibited in the Corvias Family Housing areas. Please read though our complete Resident Responsibility Guide Section 4.7 for a full list of can and cannot do’s – most of it is fairly common sense and easy to understand.
As stated above, all pets must be disclosed and registered with the Property Management office in your community prior to them residing in the home, AND be registered with the Fort Bragg Veterinary Clinic within 30 days of arrival in the home. Registration with the community center includes providing basic information about your pet as well as payment of a refundable Pet Deposit as well as a non-refundable Pet Fee. Registration with the Fort Bragg Vet Clinic will require a visit to verify or insert a microchip, a complete review of medical records, verification of vaccinations, and identification of breed. This is done for the safety and health of the pet as well as other pets and people in the community and is a requirement under XVIII Airborne Corps Regulation 40-5.
Every month in our Family Housing areas we have an average of 2 to 3 pet biting incidents, evenly split between pet on pet bites and pet on human bites. When an event like this happens, it’s critical that medical personnel can quickly ascertain that the animals involved are up to date on their vaccination for the sake of the animal and/or the person that was bitten.
There have been some fairly serious incidents in the past, many of them made much worse than they needed to be for both the owner and the animal due to lack of adherence to Corvias and Fort Bragg XVIII Corps Regulations. Having an unregistered or prohibited animal in our on post housing can and has led to UCMJ actions against residents as well as criminal charges in the case of injury to another person or animal.
One additional thing to consider - we strongly suggest that if you have one that you obtain a renters insurance and liability coverage policy that specifically names your pets(s) as insured. This insurance will mitigate the cost of injury to third parties and/or damage to real property.
As a dog owner myself, the last thing I want to ask of all of you who are pet owners is that you all treat your pets with compassion and as family members. Please insure that they are adequately fed, watered, sheltered – and loved.

After hours work order emergencies happen and our on call maintenance technicians diligently work to get each of them completed as quickly as possible. After hours, the Corvias on call maintenance is a skeleton crew. Unlike normal business hours, for after hour calls, residents must be home when the technician responds. Ensuring that residents are home saves the technician time as they do not have to obtain keys to gain access to the home. If a resident 18 yrs. or older is not home when the technician responds, they will tag the door and the resident will need to return the call so that the technician can arrange to return to the home and complete the work order.
Did you know that Fort Bragg is a Tree City, USA? The National Arbor Day Foundation recognizes Tree City USA communities for their commitment to environmental improvements and tree maintenance.
We have received many questions from residents concerning landscaping in the common areas. There are areas throughout housing that we mow less frequently and/or are allowing native vegetation to grow back into - many of these areas are specifically left to grow back in to assist with and prevent further erosion. Additionally, many areas that are adjacent to and near our neighborhoods that are maintained by the Army / DPW are being maintained in the same way.
If you have a question concerning any landscaping area you see in your community please reach out to your specific Community Center to inquire.
