Our neighborhood trash pick-up day will not change with the new trash company merger happening. Our HOA Assessment Dues include regular trash service weekly.
To set up personal recycling service - call any company directly for that service. Recycling is not included in your yearly HOA fees.

INCLEMENT WEATHER * THERE WILL BE TIMES THAT THE WEATHER WILL FORCE US TO SUSPEND OR CANCEL COLLECTION FOR THE DAY. WE CANNOT CONTROL THESE ACTS OF NATURE BUT ALWAYS TRY OUR BEST TO PERFORM OUR DUTIES SAFELY.

COMMONS AREAS NEED TO BE DRY SO THAT THEY CAN BE MOWED
Our area mow day falls on a WEDNESDAY now so if your property is next to a commons area then PLEASE do NOT water your lawn on TUESDAY OR WEDNESDAY.
PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT AND CHECK YOUR SPRINKLER SPRAY RADIUS TO BE SURE YOU ARE NOT FLOODING ANY COMMONS AREAS :)
OUR LAWN CARE COMPANY
CAN'T MOW IF YOU RUN YOUR SPRINKLER AND THE COMMONS AREA IS TOO WET
Let's try to remember to set our sprinklers
to run on days when the Lawncare guys
aren't coming :)
When this crazy Kansas weather dumps some rain on us: PLEASE turn off your sprinklers!
We are trying to get some areas sprayed for weeds and get them looking better - hopefully this will start to make a difference so please have some patience during this process.

We try to mail out a community newsletter every quarter so that you can see current happenings in our neighborhood.
The most recent newsletter has announcements such as:
BULK TRASH PICK UP DAY
Including all of the guidelines and instructions for getting bulk trash picked up in our area. Each year we try to schedule a day for us to gather up unwanted items that are too big to dispose of in the trash bins. This helps each of us from having to find the means to get these items disposed of properly and without too much hassle.
POOL OPENING DATE
Each year we post the pool opening date, the pool rules, and the closing date so that you are aware of what's happening. Our pool is PRIVATE and ONLY for our current residents: if you share your pool key with someone other than immediate family you could lose your pool privileges.
We have several committees that help our neighborhood immensely! These are homeowners who have committed to helping our neighborhood look nice and run smooth. Beyond the committee people are neighbors who ALWAYS chip in to help with many things but aren't named and we also THANK them for this!
