Neighborhood Area Garage Sale Weekend; May 14, 15 and 16

Edenton North will be holding it’s annual area neighborhood garage sale on Thursday May 14, Friday May 15, and Saturday May 16.

We will be advertising on Craigslist and appropriate social media, as well as posting signs in the Edenton North neighborhood.

Some homeowners may notice signs currently posted near Glynoaks Drive noting “Edenton” garage sales, this is for the Edenton Neighborhood Association, which is a separate association.  Please contact any board member if you have any questions.

LINCOLN POLICE ENFORCE SPEED LIMITS

Fellow homeowners,

Our traffic committee recently meet and reviewed data recently compiled by the City of Lincoln regarding the speeds of vehicles in the ENHOA. The results were quite shocking, with a significant amount of vehicles exceeding the speed limit. The committee is continuing to work through the data, and come up with possible long term solutions to this problem.

In the meantime, you may have noticed an increased presence of Officers from the Lincoln Police Department in the neighborhood enforcing speed limits. Please avoid a citation, and help keep the neighborhood safe by observing the posted speed limit on residential streets (25 MPH) and reminding your guests as well.

TREE GRANT

Edenton North was the successful recipient of a NRD tree grant. Trees will be planted on Wednesday, Oct. 8th by Finke Garden and Nursery. They plan to start around 8 AM. In order to water the trees, it will be necessary to utilize water from nearby homes. Hopefully, this will work for everyone.

Once the trees are planted, the Commons committee will need the help of nearby neighbors to water the trees if we do not get any rain. It will be important that they go into the winter with an adequate water supply. If anyone is not able to water a tree, please contact Joe Shandera – 402-304-8695.

Here are some guidelines from Finke Nursery:  My new landscape has been installed – Now What

The weather has also caused a delay in the tree trimming project. Aim High Tree Service is hopeful that they can complete work around the last week of October.

TRAFFIC COMMITTEE

The Edenton North Homeowner’s Association is pleased to announce the formation of our Traffic Committee.

The Committee will be led by board-member Larry Link, and consists of Jennifer Lancaster, Jim Dormer and Tammy Ingwerson. ENHOA would like to thank these individuals for volunteering their time to the neighborhood.

Over the coming weeks, this Committee will look into the issue of speeding in the neighborhood streets and make recommendations for solving this problem.

Once we have this information, our goal will be to approach the City, and work on a solution to the problem.

If you have any suggestions, please contact any of the ENHOA board members, and again we thank Larry, Tammy, Jennifer and Jim for their time.

TRAFFIC FLOW IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD

As school has started back up, we see an increase in neighborhood traffic.  We wanted to take a moment to touch on traffic flow throughout the neighborhood.

•SPEEDING

As a reminder, the speed limit is 25 mph on residential streets in Lincoln, Nebraska.  As you drive throughout he neighborhood, please be cognizant of your speed.

•PARKING

While parking on city streets is legal, we encourage homeowners to utilize their garages and driveways.  This helps avoid congestion on the streets.  If you do find it necessary to park on the street, please be mindful of your neighbors and others trying to use the streets, by avoiding parking directly behind someones driveway, and avoiding parking across from another parked car.

ENHOA is putting together a committee to address excessive speeding in our neighborhood, and we still need two more members.  Time will be minimal, so if you are interest din being part of this, please contact a board member.  We hope to have the committee up and running by September 15, 2015.

2014-2015 Annual Dues Notice

In an effort to reduce overhead, the Board has looked at several new ways of doing business.  One was to utilize a mail service to handle notices.  An unknown event has caused a delay in these notices being sent out, and some notices not being delivered.  Dues notices should be received in the next day or so, and we are working with the service to discover the delay.  Thank you for your patience.

ANNUAL MEETING

The Edenton North Homeowners Association 2014Annual meeting will be July 24, 2014 at Sheridan Lutheran Church at 7:00 in the evening.
