Good Neighbors

The board has received a few complaints recently that we all would like to see addressed.

1) Dogs on leash. The CC&R’s require all pets outside your yard to be on leash. We’ve had some scary incidents lately. I know you believe that Fido would never bite anyone, but you never know when he’ll turn cranky. I think it goes without saying that you should also clean up after them.

2) Cats in neighbor’s yards. Cats are great pets but you can’t confine them to your yard if you let them out. One recent complaint had some real horror stories to tell about cats in his yard, garden, flower beds and even his car in his garage. Somehow, and I know it is hard, keep them out of your neighbor’s yard.

3) Pet Skunk. Please, please, who ever has the skunk for a pet, please get him de-scented.

4) Backyard fire pit. Those of you that have a backyard fire pit, when you are done for the evening, please extinguish it. The smoldering embers put out a lot of smoke that is as hard to keep in your back yard as the cat. Some of us like to open our windows at night when it is cool but that is sometimes not possible because of the smoke or the skunk smell.

5) Vehicle Parking. Parking unsightly trailers or other vehicles on our streets. This is prohibited in the CC&R’s. If it is a temporary thing then your driveway would be better than the street.

If your neighbor approaches you on these or any other issue, please treat him kindly. The Golden Rule is never out of date and we would all like to be good neighbors.
