I hope you all are well and looking forward to hopefully an early spring. I know I am.
First, I want to let you all know that Kevin Brown is leaving the Lee’s Crossing Board of Directors after 15+ years of service to our community. Kevin has been a long time active member in our community, helping to grow and shape it over the many years he and his family have lived here. I think most of us not know him from his involvement with the Social Committee, but also from being on the men’s tennis teams and the Board for so many years. His contribution to the neighborhood has been positive for us all. Thank you, Kevin, and we will be seeing you around the neighborhood.
The City public works council had another working session on Feb25th to further discuss the speed table ordinance. Walt Walker was able to attend for the Board along with a few residents. They had another opportunity to talk with the council on the pros and cons for the tables. No decisions have been made yet on whether or not the whole neighborhood will get to vote on the proposed speed tables. We will continue to send out notices of planned City meetings where the speed table ordinance is involved.
In a continuing effort to improve overall communication to the neighborhood, a new sign will be posted at the front entrance when the newsletter comes out. The sign will have the LC website listed and also let you know a newsletter can be picked up from the mailbox by the clubhouse front door. The Board decided in the February meeting to start posting the meeting minutes on the LC website so residents can see what topics were discussed. Meeting minutes will not immediately be posted after each Board meeting since they must be reviewed and approved by the Board.
I hate to end on a negative subject, but recent complaints of a few people walking their dogs around the Clubhouse lawn and playground areas and not cleaning up after their pets are just appalling. These areas are for all our residents’ children to enjoy. I hope the offenders see this and feel ashamed of their activity. There is no reason this should be happening. Please pick up after your pets or don’t walk them at the Clubhouse.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me or send a note to LeesCrossing@comcast.net for questions you may have regarding our neighborhood.
Be healthy and safe and I will see you around the neighborhood.
