Neighborly Behavior:  The small things we do matter

Feeding the Wildlife:  Please do not feed the deer and other wildlife.  Skunks and other rodents feed on bird seed scattered.  Supplying birds with seed also may disturb the natural migratory patterns and contribute to disease from the communal trough.

Mosquitoes and standing water:  Eliminate any standing water around your house, which will greatly reduce the number of mosquitoes and diseases they carry.

Dogs:  We love your dog, but please keep it under control.  Please use a leash when walking your dog, clean up after it and control incessant barking.

Yard Maintenance:  The upkeep of your home is a reflection of your commitment and respect for your neighbors and community.  Please keep your grass mowed and yard free of debris. Garbage cans stored in plain view of the street are an eyesore and an ordinance violation.

Compost piles:  If you compost yard waste, please do not include any food waste.  Even the smallest amount can attract rats, rodents, and other pests.

Boat and camper storage:  It is not permitted to store these vehicles on your property.

Parking:  Overnight parking of your vehicle on the street is not permitted.  Vehicles may not be parked on your lawn at any time.

Noise:  Please consider the possibility of neighbors enjoying their evening meal when operating a lawn mower or other power equipment.
