We remind you, that the speed limit within the community is 25 mph. Many residents and visitors are not respecting this rule.
Break – Ins
There have been a lot of break-ins recently and ALMOST every report we take involves an unlocked car.
Two daily action items can save a lot of frustration in the long run:
- Take items of value out of your vehicle. (from loose change to sunglasses to phones to purses and even laptops)
- Lock your vehicles.
If you see suspicious activity, please call 911 and report it. All too often we get messages via email or NextDoor telling us about a person seen trying door handles or looking into cars, but 911 is almost never called. This short call can go a long way with getting officers into our neighborhood and keeping problems out.
- It is never a bad idea to review the North Carolina Sex Offender Registry on a regular basis. If you have children, or are a woman who lives alone, you may want to check this registry in order to be aware of who your neighbors are. Many sex offenders have restrictions and probation requirements which states where they can and cannot live, so if someone on this registry lives in an area that violates their registration, then the proper authorities should be notified.

Do not park on the streets or sidewalks
We are seeing that many cars are being parked on the streets, which is a violation of the community bylaws. Our streets are narrow in many areas and this has caused a safety issue in the past for fire trucks coming into the community to help people who need emergency services. We will send out a notice and give a time frame for which the vehicle must be moved. If the vehicle has not been relocated in the time frame allotted then we will have no choice but to tow that vehicle. We have hired another tow company that will tow cars on a daily basis. Please utilize your driveways/garages to park your cars in.
Street parking is a nuisance for families who have difficulty getting into or out of their driveways because a car is parked on the street and is blocking their path. Please also refrain from parking on the lawn or sidewalks of the community.
We remind ALL residents, whether homeowners or renters, that they must abide by the county LEASH LAWS. Be sure your dog is SECURELY fenced or on a leash and ALWAYS pickup after your dog.
