The HOA has been notified by Russ Cornette at the Town of Summerville that a four-way stop has been approved for the intersection of Congressional Boulevard and Olympic Club Drive.
Curbside Single-Stream Recycling will begin on January 1. Waste Pro is delivering 95-gallon single-stream recycling cans to homes in our neighborhood. Please immediately place your recycling container out of view. The covenants that govern the placement of trash cans also apply to recycling containers.
“Each lot owner shall provide a screened area not generally visible from the road to serve as a service yard and an area for the storage of garbage receptacles and fuel tanks or similar storage receptacles….”
Single-Stream Recycling will allow you to mix the following recyclable items: paper, aluminum and tin cans, plastic bottles, jugs and containers, aerosol and empty dry paint cans, cardboard (broken down and no larger than three feet) and glass.
The following non-recyclable items should not be placed in the recycling cans: food, styrofoam, rubber bands, plastic bags, soiled paper, tissue paper, paper towels or wax-coated paper.
For more information visit SummervilleSC.gov/CurbsideCollection and/or contact the Public Works Office at (843) 851-4225.
Several residents have mentioned wanting more information about how they can petition for speed bumps or speed humps on their street.
NOTE: The HOA has heard from homeowners who would like speed bumps, as well as from homeowners who oppose speed bumps.
Any homeowners interested in pursuing the matter must follow the Town’s Traffic Calming Policy which can be downloaded here (PDF).
- A petition (51% of residents) and Town Council approval is required.
- The installation must meet the appropriate volume and speed criteria.
- Neighborhood residents are responsible for funding. The Town of Summerville shall not fund speed humps.
It is important for everyone to know the laws governing golf carts.
The Summerville police department is responsible for enforcing these laws.
If you have a valid driver’s license, you may drive the golf cart during the day within four miles of your home or business and on secondary highways.
Homeowners frequently inquire about tree removal. The Town of Summerville’s Tree Protection Ordinance is in place because the citizens of the town and Town Council recognize the importance of preserving the natural landscape through the protection of existing trees.
Here is a link to the Town of Summerville laws regarding the removal of trees.
