PET ISSUES: still few complaints about people not picking up after their dogs in the community and when they walk their dogs in park.
Also complaints about dogs being put out at night and them barking all night.

ANNUAL PARK CLEAN UP - park clean up was done with little or no problems. Not as much trash this year as in previous years. Awards are to be made up for the girl scout troop that did community service to earn a badge.

BLOCK WATCH: we had a attempted burglary which was stopped by several neighbors. Home owner was in attendance and give us pictures of the person who tried to break in. Their is a active warranty for this person so anyone seeing Kyle Hendricks in the neighbor they are to call the people at once.

ATV and MOTOR VEHICLES: there are still complaints about these being road on the streets and in the park. If you see one call 911 they are against the law to be ridden in either the community or the park.

SPEEDING IN THE COMMUNITY: the speed limit in the community is 25 miles. Yes we have a lot of out of neighbor traffic but a lot of our neighbors break this speed limit. Please lets drive slower as we have lots of new children in our community.

CHANGE OF STREET NAME - a petition will be taken around to the home owners to sign to get name of Centre Road officially changed to be Centre-Ferris Rd. This is being done as it is now listed as Center Rd, Ferris Rd, Greenbank Rd on several county and state sites. With this being done by the county they will update the sites an we will not have problems with police, fire departments or emergency personnel finding homes.
