|Let's keep our neighborhood beautiful |
You can tell a lot about the folks who live here by just driving through. Our restrictions require us to maintain our properties, but our residents go a step further to make their properties beautiful! That is the reason we all chose to live here, so please help us maintain our appearance by not parking on the grass and by monitoring your children and guests as they enjoy fishing in the lake and relaxing on the grounds. Please remember to pick up after yourselves and your pets in order to assure a pleasant environment for everyone...it's the neighborly thing to do. ***ATTENTION PET OWNERS***
We love your pets and agree that they are sooo cute...but nobody wants to step in their droppings! Please be courteous and clean up their "accidents" immediately, and remember WE DO HAVE A LEASH LAW. Also, if your pet is roaming free it may hurt a child, scare a neighbor or be stolen or hit by a car. Please keep them under control and put a name/phone number tag on them in the event they get lost. We would much rather return your pet to you than take it to the animal shelter!
*** FISHERMEN, PICNICKERS AND DUCK LOVERS***
PLEASE HELP US KEEP THE LAKE IN BALANCE...IF YOU CATCH A BASS 5LBS OR OVER, DO NOT THROW IT BACK! OUR "FISHY" CONSULTANTS TELL US THAT BIGGER FISH WILL EAT ALL THE BREAM AND LEAD TO A DEAD LAKE, SO TAKE THAT MONSTER BASS HOME AND EAT IT FOR LUNCH! ALSO, PLEASE KEEP ANY BREAM YOU CATCH...THEY CAN OVERPOPULATE AND EAT ALL THE BASS EGGS IN THE SPRING.
Just a reminder...you don't have to live on the lake to enjoy it! The lake is open to all residents and their guests; please feel free to use the lake for fishing, taking an evening walk or picknicking with the kids. Some of our lakeside residents have provided benches and swings by the water, which you are welcome to use. Remember, the ducks are always hungry and we have plenty of bass, bream and catfish just waiting to jump on your hook! And by the way, our fish are so well trained that they prefer hot dogs over worms so you don't have to get your hands all wormy to catch them.
PROJECTS IN THE WORKS
This year, we plan to install concrete benches and tables around the lake for our members' enjoyment. We are also planning an Easter egg hunt if there is sufficient interest, so let us know what you think!
The extreme cold this winter killed some plants at the entrance; look for them to be replaced this spring after danger of frost has passed.
Thanks to the efforts of our newest director, Stephanie Reid, our misspelled street signs have been replaced and now read "Rue De Voir" and "Rue De Fleur".
MANY THANKS TO OUR OWN RESIDENT, MIKE TANK, OF "OUTSIDE APPEARANCE, LLC, WHO DOES AN AMAZING JOB OF KEEPING OUR SUBDIVISION BEAUTIFUL! He also does private lots at reasonable prices. If you would like to get a quote for your yard, give him a call at 933-4101 or visit him on facebook.

|Neighbors in Action!|
This group, here in Watson, should be of interest to everyone. Formed by the same group that led the opposition to the Loop's local impact, last year it exposed the actions of some local officials in attempting to locate a low income, high density HUD housing project in our community. You can access the organization's website at www.neighborsnaction.com.
|More about speeding|
As you are aware, 3-way stop signs have been posted at the intersection of Rue de Fluer and Rue de Vior. These stop signs have really helped to slow incoming and outgoing traffic down Rue de Fluer. However, small children on bicycles are still darting from driveways onto the roadways without looking for oncoming vehicles. Please remind your little ones to watch for traffic when riding bicycles. We are all concerned about the safety of our children.
