Snow Markers??? YES!!!
It is that time of year when you should be planning on putting out a couple of snow markers (2-4) along your yard a couple of inches in from the edge of the street’s road surface to 1) alert snowplows where the road boundaries are and/or 2) help protect your yard and any irrigation system from damage due to ‘over-plowing’. If you live on a straight away there may not be a strong need, but snow stakes are strongly recommended if you live on a section of road that require maneuvering around obstacles or negotiating curves or bends in the road and along intersections.
Per our snow removal contact, the company advises homeowners to “Install snow stakes to help prevent damage to curbs, walks, grass, irrigation heads and other objects that may be damaged by snowplows.” Although the contractor will exercise reasonable care to avoid damage, the contractor will not be held liable for any turf, irrigation, or curb damage if snow stakes are not installed.
Snow stakes can be found at Walmart online or at Home Depot (48″ or 24″) and Lowes (48″).

As the days become shorter and the nights longer – please, please be mindful….
Pedestrian safety is especially important as the days get shorter. Accidents involving pedestrians are far more likely to take place at night when it’s harder to see people walking.
- Look for pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists when you look for oncoming vehicles and other traffic.
- Be especially mindful in at stop signs, when backing up, or parking.
- Be extra cautious when driving in hard-to-see conditions.
- Slow down and be prepared to stop.
- Yield to pedestrians and give other vehicles an opportunity to see pedestrians.
- Check before turning to see if people are trying to cross the road and to look for oncoming cars.
- Stay alert and ditch the distractions and like texting, talking on the cell phone, or listening to headphones. Keep your eyes and ears open.
- Be visible: Wear bright clothing (even white clothing may not be visible at night). Add reflective material or a blinking light to your jacket or backpack or carry a flashlight at night. Be extra careful when walking at dawn or dusk.
- Walk facing traffic and as far from traffic as possible.
- Cross with the road caution, preferably in a well lit area or cross at corners where people driving expect pedestrians. Don’t assume the coast is clear. Continue to watch for traffic as you cross — especially for turning vehicles.
- If you wish to cross, be sure to make eye contact with drivers. If you’re not sure the driver sees you, let the vehicle go first.
- Watch for cars entering or exiting driveways or backing up.

The Board has received a concern about feeding “feral” cats.
Please be mindful that leaving out food unattended or food left out overnight may have undesirable consequences. Food intended for your feline friends may also attract pests, predators and other unwanted animals to your home and immediate area.
As you are most likely aware cats are domesticated and it is important to recognize that cats left outdoors are at an increase risk of disease, parasites, animal cruelty and in general have a shorter lifespan. Additionally it has been shown that cats free to roam have an impact on area wildlife competing for resources…. Unfortunately our domesticated friends often hunt out of instinct, not survival.
Thank you for your attention.
Note: One or more traps have been placed around one residence to remove the presence of a skunk. Cats may be inadvertently trapped.
