Lees Crossing

Monthly Newsletter January 2012




Dear Neighbors,


I hope you had a wonderful Christmas or Hanukkah and an enjoyable New Year celebration. I also hope the start of the New Year finds you and your family doing well.


Just a quick update on the Traton Homes development; the City Council has further delayed the Traton variance request, giving them more time to complete and submit a new tree save plan to the city. Traton and Griff Chalfant, or at least Griff, will be getting back to the Board when Traton has a new plan.


Regarding speeding in the neighborhood, there was another incident on Lees Trace at the front of the neighborhood where mailboxes were taken out by a car going too fast around the corner. The Board has contacted Marietta Police Department to have a speed indicator/monitor placed on Lees Trace between Park Creek Court and Trailside Lane for a week, and will report back the statistics collected. We dont have a date yet when it will be in place, but we expect it to be very soon.

With the recent repeated incidents there is a significant safety concern for the residents and walkers in these trouble areas. Drivers from outside the neighborhood play a part in this issue as well. With the increased rate of these incidents it may only be a matter of time before a significant accident happens. The Board is reviewing further options to try and reduce this risk.


Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Dollar On Your Door collection. Also thank you to Erroll Eckford for coordinating the collection. Over $1300 was collected this year and I know our sanitation workers greatly appreciated the gift. They do a great job for Lees Crossing.


That is all I have. Be safe and healthy and I will see you around the neighborhood.
