Large Gatherings Guidance and Spring Clean Up
Posted on Mar 24th, 2020
As a reminder and for the safety of all, our governor has issued a stay at home order.  Please review  official websites for more information.   Some concerns have been expressed by members of our community about pick-up basketball games and other gatherings in the public areas.  Please be vigilant with all members of your household to abide by these governmental mandates until these guidelines are lifted.  
 
Our landscapers have a waiver that allows them, at least for now, to continue working. Unless things change again you will be seeing them around the community over the next few weeks performing spring clean-up and mulching. For the safety of their employees, as well as our residents, we ask you to please not approach them. If you have any issues or concerns about their work let Valerie know and she will address it for you.
 
Thank you all for your patience and cooperation during these trying times. Stay well!

Pet Reminders
Posted on Mar 11th, 2020
With the warmer weather quickly approaching, more and more we are venturing outside to enjoy our beautiful community and the kids to play on the commons. We wanted to take this opportunity to send everyone a reminder of the pet rules:  (see The Declaration of the Community, Section 16 “Use Restrictions”, paragraph (i) “Pets” for reference)
 
For the safety of all, pets are to be leashed when outdoors, and leashes are not to be tied or staked, they must be held by a person so the animal is properly controlled. No pet shall be permitted to run loose, uncontrolled, or swim in or on the Common Facilities. Pet owners will be responsible for any damage that their animals may cause to the Common Facilities
 
Please be responsible and immediately clean up after your pet. We also ask you to be courteous of your neighbors and curb your pets away from people’s lawn areas.  No one wants to have their kids tracking pet waste in their house or have the associated odors.   Remember that pet waste is a biohazard and can cause illness to not only other pets, but humans too.

Community Yard Sale
Posted on Mar 9th, 2020
April is upon us and it's time to do some spring cleaning. What better way to clear things out than to have a community yard sale! If you are interested in participating place all your "for sale" items outside on your front lawn on Saturday, April 25th 9 am - 1 pm (rain date Sun, 4/26th). Do not put anything out back in the alleyway. We need to keep the alleys open for regular use by residents. Do not block any sidewalks and do not set up tables or items in the street. All items un-sold at 1 pm must be removed back inside your home/garage until Tuesday's trash collection. If you need a bulk item pick up, please contact the Township to arrange for collection by their trash hauler. The common grounds, trails, and parking lots are not to be used for this sale. You must only set up on your own property.

2019 Snow Clearing Map
Posted on Nov 1st, 2019
Please click here to view the map for 2019 showing all areas in the Community that the Association will clear snow. All other areas are the individual home owners responsibility with the Township responsible for roadways. 
 
Snow Removal Responsibilities
Posted on Nov 1st, 2019
Association Responsibility - The Association has posted it's "snow map" on the website, you can view it there, as well as on the clubhouse bulletin board, or click here. The Association will only remove snow from the alleyways, Harding Circle, the parking lots, certain sections of trail, and sidewalks that are adjacent to common ground. 
 
Township Responsibility - The Township plows all the roadways except Harding Circle.
 
Owner Responsibility - Regardless of living in a single or town home, everyone is responsible for snow removal to their driveways, walk from the front door to the driveway or sidewalk, and the sidewalk out front of your home. Homes located on corners are also responsible for the sidewalks along the side of their home, as well as clearing a path at the corner so people can safely cross the street. Do not put snow back onto already cleared alleyways or streets. Do not put any snow down any of the storm drains. They need to be free to take in the melting snow. Packing them with snow will cause them to not function properly and could cause flooding. 
 
Single Family Homes - Please remember to clear a path in the street to your mailbox for the Mail Carrier to safely deliver your mail to your  home. 
 
Township Snow Related Ordinances - Police can issue tickets:
Parking on the street when snow is in the forecast is not permitted
All sidewalks must be completely cleared of snow and ice within 12 hours of the end of a storm
Ice Caused from Drainage off Home Lots - Everyone is reminded that you are responsible to monitor the flow of drainage from your downspout extensions and sump pump lines. If any icing is caused in the alleyways due to your properties drainage you will be cited for this safety violation, fined and charged the full costs incurred by the Association to have the iced area treated and cleared. If you notice any ice forming in the alleyways please address it immediately so you are not cited. It is highly suggested you disconnect any sump pump lines so they drain into your side yard only during the winter months. 
 
Parking Lot Use During Snow Storms - As noted above the Township does not permit parking on the streets during snow storms. Everyone is urged to use their garages and driveways before parking in the Association lots.
 
However, if you park in the clubhouse lot please leave the spaces closest to the building empty so people using the building will be able to park there. Parking is limited to no more than 72 consecutive hours, violators will be towed at the vehicle owners sole expense.
