Safety Tips

As darkness comes earlier in the evenings, it is important to remember a few key pedestrian safety tips.

  • When possible use sidewalks or trails and do not walk in the roadways. Always use crosswalks when available.
  • If a sidewalk, trail or crosswalk is not available, walk in the roadway closest to the curb and look both ways before crossing the street.
  • If it is necessary to walk in roadways, walk facing oncoming traffic.
  • If walking after dusk, wear light-colored clothing or a reflective vest to be more visible to motorists.
  • Put down your cell phones and avoid wearing your headphones if it is necessary to walk in the roadway. Using these can distract you from what is going on around you.

Community Notice

Recently we have broken ground on our new Amenity Center coming in 2019! During this phase of construction, it is necessary to close the parking lot located near the construction site. The lot will be unusable and a gate will be placed at the entrance, please avoid parking in this lot. Even if the gate is open for construction access, parking is prohibited. Alternate parking can be found along Tall Oaks Drive, Heather Drive or other community parking lots. Vehicles parked in the restricted area can be towed without notice or may be blocked by a locked gate.

Your community is very excited to be able to offer these upgrades. We know that you will find the completion of this project a major improvement that you will be proud of and enjoy. We apologize for any inconvenience and we sincerely appreciate your cooperation.
