Landscape Walk Notes

Blackberry bushes

Showplace provided a proposal of $1900 to cut down and spray the bushes in the wetlands from 174th to power line park.  Spray will occur once after the bushes are cut and again in the fall.

A motion was made to approve the proposal by Showplace by Dave and passed by the board.

Cottage homes

Driveway triangles don’t seem to be doing very well the plantings are not really growing.  It was being looked at other solutions from River Rock or Moss to grow in the areas.  No decision has been made.

Street trees are invading the water meters on properties, proposal to have trees removed and ground down to prevent damage to water meters and water mains also sidewalks are also sustaining damage by being lifted up by tree roots.  A review of the CCR’s have determined that the Home Owners are responsible for the Street Trees and damaged Sidewalks and driveways.  The Landscape Maintenance program does not cover these repairs.  The board has decided to provide information to the home owners in the next Newsletter to educate Home Owners and their responsibilities on what they can do if they have a Tree causing damage to their property.

Summer Newsletter

A newsletter for the Summer to include information on the Charlais 4th of July event, Trees causing damage and damaged utility covers and who to contact.

Lynda to forward Charlais information to board.

Dave had mentioned that it would be nice to see a path extension on the south side of the Power Line Park near bronson.  Michael F also noted that the property might have been purchased by THRPD.  This might be an indication that it could be developed by them.
