Neighborhood Garage Sale May 3rd and 4th

There has been conversation on NextDoor for our Neighborhood Garage sale dates this year. It looks like the majority of people would like to do it from 08:00AM to 01:00PM on Friday and Saturday, May 3rd & 4th so we will do it then. We will attempt to get the garage sale signs out next week to help advertise it.

HOA Monthly Board Meeting

Neighbors,

Every month the Summit Lakes HOA board meets to conduct business.  We do not vote to change CCR’s at these meetings.  While typically residents do not attend you are welcome to.  We will be meeting Wednesday, February 20th, at First Merchants Bank at 3333 IN-32 – in the Kroger “parking lot”- at 6:00 pm.  Seating is limited.  When we’ve finished conducting our business we will open the floor to questions briefly and then adjourn.  Notes from the meeting will be posted.

Wanted – Summit Lakes Community Garden Planning Committee

Community Vandalism

The Summit Lakes HOA has been alerted to two different acts of vandalism in our community.  The first one is occurring at the pond by the playground off of McKinley.  It has been reported that kids have been throwing the rocks that line that pond (preventing erosion) into the water.  As you can see from the picture below it’s quite a few rocks.  Out of concern for the safety of the kids responsible and respect for the association property we ask that you speak with your children and let them know that we do consider this vandalism.  The association will now have to spend our funds to correct the issue.

The second issue of vandalism that has come to our attention is that kids have been turning on neighbors sprinklers and outside faucets as they walk between houses on their way home from the bus stop.  This has caused damage to property.

Parents, please help us keep your children safe and our community free from vandalism.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Tree removal update

There are several trees and bushes that need to be removed and/or replaced at the Gray Rd and 169th street frontages.  There are also 2 dead trees in the wooded common area on Rainier.
