A Strong Community is an Informed Community
Due to extenuating circumstances, the board has cancelled the Winter Walk scheduled for December. The board continues to invite homeowners to share suggested events and activities that foster a sense of community and interaction. Please reach out if you would like to help organize an activity.
While attending our annual meeting on Sept. 18th, Mayor Ethan Baker answered a question about the state required Backflow Inspections. Here is additional background he committed to provide as follow-up to the answer he shared during the meeting.
"The testing of residential back devices is a requirement of the State of Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) , as part of the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act. A community water system is required by law to stay in compliance with all safe drinking water act rules. In 2011 the rule was changed to reflect the testing intervals must be no longer than every 3 years. To keep our entire water system in compliance we must continue to require residential back flow device testing. In the process of testing we have found that this type of device has a failure rate of around 25% -30% each testing cycle. These failures come from not being winterized and freezing, insects, impact, and just plain parts failure. The City of Troy Water and Sewer Division has an obligation to the residents of the City to provide safe, clean drinking water every day, and to do this we must stay in compliance with the rules and laws governing safe drinking water."

Questions frequently come up about mailboxes in our community when a homeowner finds their mailbox in need of repair. The Association has no authority to repair or replace mailboxes nor can the Association dictate the style or color. However, the board feels strongly that a common mailbox style, color, and appearance add to the sense of community and overall aesthetic. So, homeowners are encouraged to adhere to the current mailbox design as much as possible. See documents below for detail instructions. For other questions or help with mailboxes, reach out to the board at: email@example.com.
