Unfortunately, there are some properties that are poorly maintained, overpopulated and overwhelm the neighbors with vehicles. Your Civic Association is working with County authorities in an effort to improve those situations. It takes a long time, but we have had some success.

If you do not think you can make a difference by speaking up when you see something you think detracts from our community; here is a little story that may change your mind. A house in the neighborhood recently was undergoing renovation and those in charge of the project decided to paint the brickwork BLUE. Several of the neighbors saw what had happened and immediately complained about the color. The owner had second thoughts and repainted the bricks white. This all happened within a span of a couple of days. Shows what citizens who are concerned about their neighborhood can accomplish when aroused!
