New Pet Waste Stations!
ANNOUNCING TWO LESS REASONS NOT TO HAVE TO CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR PET!!
In July the Home Owners Board approved the purchase of two Dog Waste Stations to be placed along the Golf Course to help in maintaining our beautiful neighborhood and streams. These stations are located at the intersection of Fairway And Sherwood and just across from the intersection of Ambler and Gladstone. What is the problem you say? Scooping your pooch’s poop isn’t just a courtesy for those walking behind you; it is also the healthy and environmentally sound thing to do. Pet waste can be a significant source of water pollution. When pet waste is not properly disposed, it can be carried by rain or snow runoff directly into nearby water bodies or into storm drains. Storm drains in our neighborhood flow directly to the Swannanoa River without any treatment. Untreated animal fecal matter and wastes can become a source of harmful bacteria and nutrients in water. Just as we don’t want human sewage in our water, it is important to prevent pet waste from being carried into our waterways because of negligence. Not Only That, Its not the most pleasant thing to step in when you're out enjoying a leisurely walk through the neighborhood!

Congratulations to The Dixons at 14 Marlborough!
Please slow down, watch for kids and bears and enjoy the sights and sounds of our beautiful neighborhood!
THANKS to all 123 households who have paid their 2016 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 send a check to HOA Treasurer, 19 Hampden. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
