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.
- Please keep your trash & recycling cans inside your garage
- 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.
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.
Due to maintenance work the kiddie pool will be closed until Thursday. The other pools are still open.
This morning a resident was bitten by a dog outside the club house where children were waiting for the bus. The dog was on a leash but was agitated by all the activity around, and bit a resident who was jogging by.
Please be aware that an owner is responsible for their dog’s behavior and actions. If your dog is excitable and prone to biting and snapping, please avoid around areas where there are groups of people and lots of activity (IE-children running and shouting at the bus stop).
To our residents:
There has been a change in the pool closure schedule.
The pools will be open tomorrow through Sunday [Apr 29]. But starting Monday [Apr 30], they will be closed until Thursday morning [May 3rd] . Cement work is happening at the entrance area and several days are needed for it to set and dry properly.
NOTE: This includes the club house, as well.
While it is open this weekend, please watch your step as boards have been set out to cover dirt areas that will getting cemented on Monday.
The HOA would like to remind all residents that burning of leaves or trash in your yard is illegal. Yard waste is picked up on Fridays, the day after garbage/recycling day, or you can haul it to the Log House Rd dump facility in Clermont. Click the link for address and times open.
We would like to remind residents to please keep your vehicles locked. And do not leave valuables in view. Valuables should be taken with you inside or locked in your truck. This includes spare change, too.
