No Soliciting in Eagle Point:
We continue to have problems with unwanted solicitations in our community. We cannot prevent these people from being on our public streets, but we can discourage them from coming to our door. If possible, obtain the name, address, phone number, and name of the business from the individual. Remind them that this is a covenant community and solicitors are NOT welcome.
If you feel at all uncomfortable with this person, ask them to leave your property and call the Shelby County Sheriff's office at 205-669-4181. They will check this person out and respond with a deputy if the situation warrants it. If you feel in immediate danger, call 911.
Safety & Security
Speeding: Personal Letters from Homeowners, and Call to Action
"I was just behind a white Acura MDX...license.... She was speeding faster than anything I've ever seen in a residential area, while applying makeup. At one point she had to slam on her breaks to avoid hitting workers' vehicles at a new construction home on Eagle Point Circle. She had to put her vehicle in reverse; she was so close their vehicle. She was traveling towards 119 entrance. PLEASE forward her information on. She was all over the road, both lanes."
"Someone tried to pass me the other day on the main road. I laid on my horn and they changed their mind. I called the sheriff and they couldn't get there as many officers were tied up directing school traffic. In hindsight, I wish I had let her pass me and then I would've gotten her tag number."
Report Dangerous Drivers!
Since the EPHOA is receiving a high level of complaints about speeding vehicles, we encourage all Eagle Point residents to report dangerous drivers. You should know that the Alabama Legislature has passed a law that places a 25 mph speed limit on subdivision roads in unincorporated Shelby County. Randy Cole, County Engineer, has stated that "one of the biggest complaints that we get is speeding in subdivisions". We need your help in reporting these incidents.
How You Can Help:
• Write down or take a picture of the license plate of the dangerous driver's vehicle
• Report the incident (include date, time, and license number) to the Shelby County Sheriff's Department
• Phone: 669-4181 or 911,
• Web: http://shelbyso.com/report.php.
• You can also submit this information to the EPHOA at email@example.com and we will assist you in reporting the incident.
We believe that encouraging all residents to participate in the neighborhood watch will improve safety for all of us. Thank you for your help in keeping our residents safe!
