Bear Activity In Community

Please be vigilant!

There was bear activity in our community last night. A resident’s garbage can was destroyed by a bear in the early A.M. hours; the bear attacked it to get at the garbage inside. The bear was caught on the resident’s video camera.

  1. Please keep your trash & recycling cans inside your garage
  2. Do not confront a bear if you see it

This happened at a home on the perimeter of the development next to the wooded area, but if the bear is in the community it could explore further in if attracted by garbage you have put in your trash can.

If you need to replace your trash or recycling can due to a hungry bear, or a different reason, please see our Trash/Recycling page for the phone number to call for a replacement.

Yard Clippings Issue

Hello residents:

There have been many instances noted lately of residents mowing their lawn and not picking up the leaves and grass clippings left in the streets. Clippings not picked up eventually wash into the storm drains and can cause them to clog.

If  our sewer drains have to be cleaned out due to build up of yard waste, the HOA will have no recourse but to put that cost into a special assessment that comes out of the finances of the community, possibly leading to increases in HOA dues. The community is already paying for services and repairs to the landscape due to the extremely cold weather we had last winter (landscape replacement, repair to bust irrigation pipes), the cost of having the sewers cleaned out is a major expense we don’t want to have to also pay for.

Thank you.

Please Keep Our Bus Stop Safe

Hello residents,

We have had 7 calls from parents this week complaining of out-of-control dogs being brought to the bus stop as the owners see their children off/meet their children returning. Kids are already excited during these times, and this energy is making the dogs skittish and unruly. One child has even said one dog was trying to bite her ankles.

PLEASE LEAVE YOUR DOGS AT HOME! DO NOT BRING THEM TO THE BUS STOP!

Chapter 4 of the Lake County Ordinance Rules covers all laws about Animal Control and unruly pets. The owner will be held responsible for the action of their dog, and if Animal Control deems the animal dangerous it can be taken from the owner, confined at the owner’s expense, and possibly euthanized.

Please protect yourself, your pet, and other residents: Leave your dogs at home during school bus pick-ups & drop-offs.

Thank you.
