Yard Sale

The HOA sponsors one (1) community garage sale annually.  The sale is held on the third Saturday in September.

Tree Removal

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.

Trash Cans in View from Street

The neighborhood covenants require that all trash and recycle containers be stored so that they are not viewable from the street.

Trash and recycle containers should be placed on the street no earlier than the evening before pickup. Trash and recycle containers should be removed from the street on the same day as pickup.

Yard waste pickup is every Thursday. Try to avoid placing yard waste beside the road prior to Wednesday.

 

Pooper Scooper

Please clean up after your pet! Use a pooper scooper even in the areas that may seem acceptable for deposits; other pet owners will surely appreciate a clean place to walk.
