Old Business: There are concerns about the three trash companies that invade our streets five days per week. The effect on the streets is significant as is the noise. The issue is under study to see how we can optimize the situation. No specific action was assigned.
New Business: There are concerns that some actions taken by home owners adversely affect others. Most often these effects are inadvertent. A general consensus seemed to be that we need a method of communicating the notion of being good neighbors. One suggestion was to create a handbook with advice on how to get along as neighbors. Such a handbook could be included in the new owners handout and posted on our website. No action was assigned, but this issue will be addressed at the September meeting.
Business concluded the meeting was adjourned.
