A Note From The Director
Think Spring!
The winter of 2015 came upon us with vengeance, cold, cold and and more cold!! Thanks to all residents for your patience while our Maintenance crews cleared snow and salted walkways for your safety. As spring arrives, so will the thaw and due to the winter construction, lawns will be messy and will need time to grow. Please take care of these areas to help beautify our neighborhoods. Be sure to check out our website and facebook account. There is new and updated information available on both.
- James A. Dewey, Executive Director
