Monthly Newsletter August 2011
I hope you are well and finding ways to stay cool. As fast as the summer school break has come, so has the start of the new school year. With the school season upon us please be aware that the morning neighborhood traffic will change significantly. Please watch for kids walking to school and be especially careful at the front of the neighborhood around Burris. There may be police out front keeping an eye on traffic.
For those parents that pick up their kids from Burris and park on Waterwind Way, please be sure not to park on the new shrubs and flowers. There has been a lot of work this year to clean up the front lot and make it more presentable. I know it is a lot to ask for the young kids not to stomp, hang or climb on the landscaping in the front lot, but please talk to your kids that travel through this area about being considerate of the plantings and small trees. Parents, please park at the curb or designated space. There is not sufficient parking for everyone to park there to meet their children, and please be considerate of the resident’s access to their driveways.
I have talked with the Marietta City Engineers about some of our streets that are in need of paving. As it stands now, no work will be done this year. The engineers have identified three of the six specific streets I presented that will be put in the 2012 work plan. These streets are Laurel Field Lane, Russet Court and Briarmeade Drive. The earliest the work would be done is late April 2012. I will provide an update next year when a schedule may be in place with the city.
My last item is that we will soon be moving the trash collection area at the clubhouse to the bottom end of the parking lot and screening it from the residents across the street with shrubs. This moves the trash area away from the well and also accomplishes the much needed reconstruction of the collection area. In addition, there will be some minor construction in the clubhouse entrance to close off the kitchen area and allow access only to the restrooms when needed.
Have a great rest of the summer and a good start to the school year!
If you should ever have any comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me. My home phone number is (770) 499-9354.
