AVENBURY NEWS UPDATES
GUTTER CLEANING - Gutter cleaning will begin today, 12/13/2018, for those on the gutter cleaning list. Work will begin on Buckingham.
PEDESTRIAN SAFETY - The City has now approved the allocation of $15,000 for the installation of two pedestrian activated blinking light systems for the Middleton/Southampton crosswalk. It is anticipated that this system will be installed at year end or early next year. The installation of this light system was promised to Avenbury Lakes by the Mayor through the Economic Planning Director at our annual Association Meeting last April. The Mayor wants to make clear that pedestrians should never take for granted that vehicles will yield a right of way to crossing pedestrians even with the activated blinking lights.
MESSAGE FROM OUR PROPERTY MANAGER - Brightview will be cutting and removing vegetation from the North pond bank starting tomorrow, 12/12/2018. This is part of the plan outlined by Doug Baldi, Landscape Architect, to better control the pond bank area.
