Neighborhood News,

Food Truck Friday
Thank you for your continued support of our Food Truck Friday events! Tonight’s featured vendors for Food Truck Friday are Lola’s Lumpia and Wicked Waffles. The trucks will be in the pool parking lot from 5:00–8:00 pm. Most trucks offer the option to order in advance. Please click through the links for further information for each. 2022

Pool Opening Updates
The weather is getting warmer, and the pool is being prepped for opening on March 23! If you recently moved in and have not received your pool fobs, need to replace a fob, or wish to purchase an extra, please stop by the office to pick them up. The cost is $25.00 for replacement and extra fobs.

Pollinator Garden
We want to give special thanks to Terry Parkman for all of his hard work enhancing the neighborhood’s pollinator garden with fresh soil and a new fence. The park is now in need of foliage plants or plants that attract butterflies and other pollinators. If you would like to donate a plant, put it in a black plastic pot labeled with the type of plant and leave it inside the fence in the garden. Lawn art will also be appreciated.

Neighborhood Enhancement Updates 
The parking lot behind the Green Barn is scheduled for grading and gravel laying.
The ponds will be stocked with more carp in early March, so get your fishing poles ready!
The construction crews responsible for the trash and silt fence issues behind Carnes Crossing near Lake Hewitt are working on these issues this week. Fines have been issued, and we will continue to communicate with the builders on these as the community grows.
