SUMMER is approaching and will be here before you know it! What an exciting time with kids getting out of school and many of us getting ready for Summer Vacations!!!
Let's keep our Neighborhood looking beautiful by cleaning and weeding lawns and flower beds.
Time to FRESHEN up those mailboxes!! Cleaning it and giving it a new coat of paint might liven it up. It is a great perch for the joyful birds to sit on but what is left behind on the mailbox is becoming unsightly. If you like do it yourself projects and would like to paint your mailbox...Lowes has a great black paint. The name is Valspar Satin Black. However, if you find you don't have time and really do not want to take on that project and would like someone else to do it...Alabama Mailbox Company (205-594-4413) charges $85.00 to paint and can replace numbers...each set of numbers is $12.00.
Here is a list of companies that will come out and fix what you need on your mailbox:

This time of year can be very hectic and chaotic! Please remember to remove your trash cans from the street the day of garbage pick up. Also, please put them in a place that is not visible from the street!
With summer approaching please remember kids will be out of school and let's use a little more caution when driving through the neighborhood. I know the first thing that comes to mind is teenagers but let's be honest many adults also fly through the neighborhood!
Let's Have A Great Summer!!!
Be a Good Neighbor!
A couple of considerations to remember for the neighborhood!
ANIMALS can be such a blessing but sometimes we do not realize that our sweet pets can be a nuisance to others. If you hear your furry friend(s) BARKING, please bring them inside. Some neighbors have different sleep habits due to work schedules! Things that we think are cute from our loved ones are not to others. Also, remember to keep your pet on a leash and to keep them in your own yard AND please clean up after them. We all are very busy but we must take the time not to be that neighbor and try not to cause frustration to others. Let's keep our furry friends lovable...Be a Good Neighbor!!
Also, please realize that PARKING on the street overnight is not allowed in Eagle Point. We have had several complaints about the UPS truck, Waste Pro Garbage truck and School Buses not being able to get down the street. The nice Garbage workers are resulting to knocking on doors just to be able to do their job. Not a FUN job when you knock on a door at 5:40 AM in the morning and it is the wrong door. Also, not a HAPPY neighbor when awakened by WastePro to find that a neighbor has left their car(s) parked in front of your house.
Please realize that you could be responsible for the death of a neighbor because an emergency vehicle could not get through to save them! This happened in another neighborhood recently and we do not want it to happen in Eagle Point!
Many have large families and each person has a car but please remember to just park your car(s) in your DRIVEWAY! This is also a safer place for cars not to be hit or broken into. Be a Good Neighbor!!!
