May 2007


After winter's hit on our trees and flowers, our neighborhood is looking beautiful. Trees are being replaced, flowers are starting to bloom, birds are singing, and yards are being mowed and edged weekly. The fountain is sparkling. What a symbol the fountain is for our neighborhood! It is such a pleasure to live in an area where neighbors take great pride in maintaining the beauty of their homes and yards. In doing so, the value of all of our homes is maintained and enhanced.

COVENANT VIOLATIONS: A big yellow cat is daily prowling the Parkhill area making residents' lives miserable. It not only urinates at one neighbor's door but strives to jump up and catch birds at another neighbor's bird feeder.


What happened to the pavilion light pole? A lot of people have been asking this question. The policeman patrolling the neighborhood said at 11:00 p.m, May 4, everything was in good shape. About ten minutes later when he went back to the front of the subdivision, someone had knocked down the light pole and run through the flower bed, but they were nowhere in the area. The individual had either left the neighborhood or put the vehicle in a garage. The police reported evidence indicated it was either a dark blue or navy Chevrolet pickup or SUV. It will show damage to the bumper. The police would appreciate any information. City Utilities has replaced the light pole.
