Annual Tax Ditch Meeting – Notes
Here are a few notes from an Overbrook Shores community member who attended the meeting on 11/27/2023.
- The board announced that they were working toward a regular twice yearly cleaning, and had signed a contract for cleaning the bottom by hand. The next cleaning is scheduled for the first week in December. DNREC pays for half of this.
- The board is planning to send a notice to all properties bounding the ditch, including Overbrook Shores, reminding them that they must clean the right of way and keep the footage accessible.
- Another ongoing issue is that the other end of the main culvert in Sweetbriar Park is too small and floods the surrounding lots. The board and DNREC are in negotiations with the property owner to install a new larger culvert. They are also attempting to start a dialog with Vincent overlook about clearing the right of way and fixing flooding issues caused by changes to their rainwater collection pond. This issue is complicated as the developers are getting ready to turn management over to a not-yet-formed HOA.
- If you live along the tax ditch or on various sections of Jays Way or West Mill you may be interested to know of the upcoming meeting.

To learn more about tax ditches visit de.gov/taxditch
Just a FYI – During the development of Overbrook Shores arrangements were worked out to exclude our properties owners from taxation. However, properties along tax ditch do have right-of-way easements. This type of easement is used to access the ditch for maintenance and disposal of the sediment and debris from the channel during cleanout. No permanent structures — homes, sheds, wells, ponds etc. — are permitted in the tax ditch right-of-way.

Cave Neck Road Association
Paynter’s Mill, in connection with Red Fox Run, is trying to develop an association to include developments along Cave Neck Road that would have a similar interest in monitoring and having a say in what is going to be developed on the other side (east side) of Rt 1 / Coastal Hwy & Cave Neck Rd. The group is shooting to get together later this spring. Invitations have also be sent to Vincent Overlook and Windstone.
If interested in being a part of the ‘association’ and assisting in sharing information, please contact David Thompson, OSHA President @ firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message @ (202) 379-8504.

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.
