Are You Game?

Wow, yes you are! The first Social Club meeting on June 14th was a huge success. Quite a few clubs are now getting organized:  Bunco, Book Club, Walking Group, Lunch & A Movie, Wine Club, Special Interests Group and Progressive Dinners.

Couldn’t make it to the first meeting? Well, please come to the next one on July 12th. You can sign up for any of the clubs that are forming or bring your ideas to head up a new one. Watch for the yellow postcard in your mailbox with all the info. Hope to see you there!


Common Areas Maintenance Update

Surja reports that the neighborhood’s common areas are in relatively good shape. His recommendations are in the works:  1) Trees in the brick planters on Wellington Drive were starting to outgrow their homes. Cracks have been repaired and trees are being replaced.  2) Power washing of all common areas will be done July 16, 17 and 18. 3) Radcliffe Court will have their streets cleaned on July 6.

Please watch for an article in the August newsletter on what to do if you notice a problem with street lights in our common areas. Surja would appreciate our help.


Garage Sales, Moving Sales, Estate Sales, Yard Sales…

No matter what you call them, they are not allowed.


Barrington Drive Work

You all may have noticed the work on the north side of Barrington Drive. The city is installing a 10 inch storm drain, replacing a smaller one. In addition, they will be tapping the runoff drains of 6 homes along the north side of Barrington Drive directly into the storm drain. The natural springs and runoff will not be directed into the gutter as they are now. Sometime in the future, likely this season, the city will repave Barrington Drive.
