Grass Cutting along the highway
Well as we have all seen this past year, the state after receiving a letter from us stayed on top of the cutting throughout the year. Congradulations to them for the success this year. We will be watching to see if the memories are short for next year.
Hard to believe that it is time to start thinking and preparing for spring already. We have received the information request for the community enrollement in the program for the upcoming 2016-17 year. It has been completed and returned and we are informing all residents that we will be having the spraying process at the discretion of the Dept. of Agriculture. We have to provide the residents this information and therefore if there are any questions please go to the link below for assistance.
standard procedures for spraying
Residents that wish to have their property excluded from adult mosquito control services must notify the Maryland Department of Agriculture and the community association by submitting a completed exemption form. The Departments policy on objection to adult mosquito control services and the exemption form are enclosed and are available on our website at:

Dogs may be “man’s best friend” and a delightful sight, but if owners are negligent, dogs can also be quite a public nuisance. For instance, owners who fail to pick up after their pets contribute to the spread of disease and create an undesirable walking environment. Dog poop can carry tapeworm, salmonella, and E. coli, diseases that might not be a direct harm to humans, but that can easily spread to other animals. Not to mention that rainwater washes the waste into drains, therefore requiring more sanitation efforts and potentially lowering the quality of water. Therefore, it is crucial that dog owners heed dog poop and leash laws.
There is a pet station cleanup located in the triangle on Guildford road that is used by many of our residents. Thank You! However sadly to say there are several dog owners that walk their pets in our park areas and along the medians and feel there is no need to comply with the laws and common respect for others. Dogs should always be leashed in public areas regardless of the nature of the animal and you should pick up after your pet when they go in these areas. You know who you are and so do we!!!
IT's THE LAW - CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR DOG!!!
