Common Area Progress and Remaining Projects:

The common area Rt 50 gardens are complete, with the exception of the crape myrtle and solar lighting installation.  We are waiting the grower to deliver 3 tall crape myrtle specimens before having Merrifield Gardens install them. The solar lights will be attached to the telephone pole which will light the sign; we’ll need volunteers for that part of the project. Other than that only on going maintenance would be required.

The flag pole garden will be revamped and this needs to be done sooner than later due to the stipulation in the grant that all projects must be complete before a final payment can be made.  What’s left to do is take out all plants from the garden, kill all grass and weeds in the garden, wait recommended time before replanting, add top soil and mulch, replant plants and add evergreens to complement the Rt 50 gardens. Hoist up the old bench and install the new bench, install solar lighting on the flag pole and retrieve the halyard from the pulley at the top of the pole and replace both halyards. Move cleat up the flag pole to discourage vandals.

FLAGPOLE GARDEN REFRESH (TBD)

A week or so ago I sent a letter to the Shining Star Church Pastor which highlighted a few concerns/issues we in the neighborhood had. Pastor Lim was eager to meet with us and set up a meeting for late last week.

Below is a letter I drafted for the church. I drop it off on Friday with Calvin in the church office, who said he would convey the message and give the note to the pastor. I explained that the neighborhood who meets discussed these issues and that an approach would be to discuss these with them. I did mention that the immediate houses closest to the church and the Sunday parking were most effected. Please take a look at this letter…if I mis-communicated anything please let me know as when/if I am contacted I would very much like to convey the appropriate message.
