The HOA Board holds monthly meetings in addition to our quarterly Community meetings in order
to discuss plans, ideas, issues, and concerns regarding our neighborhood. All meetings have been
open to the residents this year and are advertised in our newsletter and on our website. In addition,
the Community Meetings are advertised on a sign at the subdivision entrance. Each committee is
addressed at all meetings and an open discussion is conducted in order to answer questions and
concerns. The meetings are also a time to recruit new volunteers. Food is served and prizes are
given away at all Community Meetings. Your participation and support are greatly encouraged.

The Town of Summerville will be repainting our streetlights in the next few months. We ask all
residents with a light pole in their yard to trim back any trees that may hinder this project. Thanks!

The HOA is in the process of making plans to improve our park. Residents with children and
grandchildren are encouraged to send in any suggestion to us about what kind of equipment and
amenities you would like added. Please call Behling or e-mail us at with
your ideas and suggestions.

The Summerville Place Crime Watch Committee would like to remind our residents that most
household burglaries occur during daytime hours and can happen even when someone is home.
Keep your doors locked at all times. Call 875-1650 to report any suspicious activity in your area.
Many thanks to Cpl. John O’Meara of the Summerville Police Department for his volunteer service.

If you have experienced a recent tragedy, illness, or have had a spouse deployed and you are in need
of assistance with basic lawn care, please contact our Helping Hand Committee through Behling or
email us at and we will be happy to provide you temporary assistance.

Members of the HOA voted in June to have the family of geese relocated. Many concerns had come
to the attention of the Board regarding the geese. These are not migratory geese protected by law.
They are being relocated by Pest Management Recourses to a new home and they are being kept
together as a family.
