Eagle Pointer 5/4 - 5/10/2014
Safety and Security
I live at the corner of Eagle Point Circle and Eagle Point Drive where they have been clearing one of the lots, and we just watched a coyote walk across the dirt road. We hear them howling at night frequently but have never seen them in the daytime. Watch your kids and pets!
There have been fewer incidents in the neighborhood the last few weeks. Thanks to everyone who is being vigilant and calling the sheriff when you see suspicious activity or vehicles and people who look out of place.
The Shelby County Sheriff non-emergency number is 205-669-4181. The Sheriff encourages you to call anytime you see something suspicious or if you feel unsafe.
Remember that Eagle Point has No Solicitation signs posted at all entrances to the neighborhood. If you see someone going door to door, or if someone comes to your door, please call The Sheriff and they will respond. We have a good relationship with all the deputies and they are happy to address the solicitors.
Speeding continues to be a problem in the neighborhood. Please remember that as the weather continues to get warmer and there is daylight later in the day there will be more children outside playing. Please slow down and be careful. Remind your teenage drivers as well.
Eagle Point has a strict no yard sign policy. It is part of the covenants and it is specifically addressed for the benefit of the community. Eagle Point is a premier community and we need to maintain the beauty of the neighborhood by keeping our yards neat and clear of advertising.
Currently there are signs up and down the main road advertising political candidates, Vacation Bible School, painting companies and roofing companies. Most of these signs are not offensive to anyone, they just look sloppy in otherwise well-kept yards. What we don’t want is to set a precedent where we have to allow signs for organizations that may be offensive to the neighborhood. Please be considerate of all your neighbors and remove the signs from your yards.
Lakes in Eagle Point
There have been several inquiries to the HOA office this week about the lakes in Eagle Point. All of the lakes in Eagle Point are private property and are under the jurisdiction of the homeowners. Many of the lakes have no trespassing signs posted.
• The water behind Baumhowers is also on private property and is a retention pond for storm water runoff.
• The lake in the office park near the highway 280 entrance is owned by the office park and is considered a private lake as well.
Please remember to be a good neighbor and a good pet parent. There are a couple of hot spots in the neighborhood where the HOA office gets almost daily complaints about barking dogs. If your dog is barking constantly or late at night and early in the morning please address it before it becomes a trip to the vet or a complaint to the HOA office.
