It's a great venue to meet new friends, from both sides of the lake.

Unleashed Dogs We've all read unfortunate stories in the news recently regarding unleashed dogs attacking people. We must all be observant and vigilant to assure that this never happens in our neighborhood. Please report any unleashed dog immediately to The Chesterfield County Animal Control Office. Their phone number is 804-748-1683.

Houses For Sale If you're marketing your house for sale, please encourage your realtor to include the address of this website in the marketing materials they prepare. It will create value and help you sell your house! Also, please remember that our existing covenants allow only one "For Sale" sign to be displayed, typically placed in the front yard. A current real estate trend is to "point the way" to houses-for-sale with multiple signs. Perhaps this method is effective, but it also litters front entranceways and corners in the process! So please advise your realtor that only one sign can be placed. All others will be removed. An exception: multiple signs can temporarily be displayed for an Open House, but after the Open House concludes, the extra signs must be removed. Parking on the Street Our existing covenants/restrictions prohibit overnight on-street parking. Keeping vehicles off the streets and in driveways/garages helps unclutter our neighborhood's appearance. We will diligently enforce this restriction, as it is unsafe to leave them there; to other motorists, to pedestrians, kids etc. Love thy neighborhood; park thy car.
