NEWS OF THE WEEK
HOLIDAY Yard of the Month
103 Kingsgate - Tadd and Lori Cole
Do drive or walk the neighborhood and see this month's lovely showcase
- and enjoy all the other decorated yards too!
THANKS to all 123 households who have paid their 2014 DUES - most at the Picnic!. Our voluntary dues of ONLY $10 are very low compared to other communities, but are also very important because they fund the Picnic in September, the Annual Meeting program in March, and other events throughout the year. Plus they cover the costs of the website, mailings to residents and any legal or other expenses encountered in support of community initiatives.
So....we hope that our other 300+ neighbors will also pay their dues and become active HOA members by attending a monthly board meeting, participating in events and even joining one of the committees. It's easy - just click on the PayPal link on the Main Menu here on the website - OR send a check to HOA Treasurer, 19 Hampden. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
SPECIAL FOCUS FOR FALL: BRUSH & LEAVES
BRUSH Please note that in order to be picked up by the City, brush needs to be cut into 4 ft. lengths a maximum of 6 in. in diameter and piled loose at the curb or placed in a non-lidded container marked ‘brush’, kept free of other debris and away from fences, power poles, mailboxes, hydrants and parked cars. Thorny trimmings must be in a separate pile. Be aware that very large brush piles that are not neatly cut and stacked -or those cut by contractors - will not be picked up. Also - the City also does not pick up grass clippings, vines, or garden waste.
LEAVES Please ntoe that in order for the City to pick up your raked leaves, they must be bagged but not tied, or placed in a container without a lid marked “leaves” and kept free from trash. Alaso be aware that burning of leaves is not permitted and violators are subject to stiff fines.
