Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                             September 2008




From the President:


Dear Neighbors,


There is another proposal regarding Whitlock that the Board believes deserves the attention of our residents. This involves widening Whitlock to four lanes from the high school to the intersection of Kirkpatrick. It is not apparent that this by itself will provide traffic relief. Our councilman, Griff Chalfant, thinks this is another step towards the widening of Whitlock to the loop or a tie in to a connector through Whitlock Heights to South Cobb Drive. If you want your voice to be heard about this matter, please attend the next council meeting at City Hall, Wednesday, September 3 at 7:00 in the evening.


David Waldrep hit the ground running in August as our new property manager regarding the enforcement of architectural controls and community guidelines, and it is already beginning to show in the positive appearance of the neighborhood. We all need to be mindful that the substantial amount of rain received in the last week will result in the need for more frequent mowing, edging, pruning and the cleaning of mildew from mailbox posts. Thanks for your cooperation.


The Leisure Ladies group had their annual ice cream social last week. I understand they served nearly 70 members and guests with homemade ice cream and other deserts. It was really a treat (no pun intended).


I hope you have noticed the recent freshening of the front entrance. Genesis provided a substantial cutback of the bushes surrounding the fencing and columns and Ocampo Painting pressure washed and painted the fence. The City is going to pave Lee’s Trace soon and we are going to replace the broken up, decorative concrete with a twelve foot deep crossing of red pavers. We will try to alert you to the schedule regarding paving in advance.


Another pool season is about to end and our neighborhood guards have returned to school (some to college and some to high school). We have been forced to use out of neighborhood guards during the last few weeks and schedules have sometimes fallen by the wayside. We apologize for any inconvenience, but hope you have enjoyed the facilities nonetheless.





                                                                        Walt Walker







MONDAY, September 1st


Poolside from 1pm to 4pm


Come enjoy the music, your neighbors and the free hotdogs, hamburgers, beer and soda from your neighborhood Social Committee.


I wouldn’t be surprised if a volleyball game gets under way.  Newcomers are always welcome.


There will also be a mixed doubles tennis mixer that morning from 10am to noon.  The first 12 men and 12 women who sign up will play (must be 18 or older).  Contact Gordon Pfeiffer at 770-883-3604 (or gordon.pfeiffer@comcast.net) as soon as possible to reserve your spot.

Around the Neighborhood


Moms and Dads... be sure to check the lost and found area at the swimming pool for shoes, shirts, towels, etc.  At the end of the year, all items not claimed will be donated to a local charity.



Attention Parents


For those of you  who park at "the hill" to pick up your children  from Burruss,  for the safety of  all of our kids, please back into your parking space. 




Be sure to book the clubhouse early for any events you are planning!  Call Debbie Kelleher   at 678 354 7042



New Neighborhood Directories


The Homes Association will be producing a new neighborhood directory this fall, which will be distributed to everyone in mid-October.  By now you should have received an "information sheet" in your mailbox which shows what information we have for your home.  The sheet has instructions on how to report any changes you might have.  There are several ways, but the easiest is to send an email to leescrossing@comcast.net.  Use that address to let us know if you didn't get your sheet as well.  Please have all changes reported by October 1st.  Thank you.
