Click Here For A Full Copy

So Here is the First Reminder Below !

Rule # 26. PETS:

Subject to the provisions of 940CMR 10.04(10), the Corporation may reasonably restrict pets that go outside of the home. 

The pet owner is responsible for cleaning up after their pet.

All waste must be bagged and disposed of promptly and properly. 

Pets may be tied out on leash for no more than one hour. 

Pets will not be allowed to disturb the health, safety rights or quiet enjoyment of other residents.  

A pet should not create a nuisance to neighbors with excessive barking or other unruly behavior. 

Residents shall not keep any livestock (farm-type animals).

There shall not be any cages, houses or structures of any type for any animal on the Home sites.

The pet owner indemnifies the Corporation from any cause of action, claim or damage resulting from the actions of his/her pet when any such claim, injury or loss is due to the fault, negligence or misconduct of the pet owner.  

If the resident is in violation of this rule, the Board of Directors may take whatever steps are permitted by law to have the animal removed.  

The pet owner shall ensure that their pet(s) do not disturb the peace and quiet of other residents. If the pet owner violates this pet rule, then the Board of Directors may require or request the owner to remove the pet.

More Notices:

This is a friendly reminder to all the dog walkers in our community....when you take your dog out for a walk, PLEASE try to keep them from going onto your neighbors lawns. Walking them in the road near the edge of lawns is expected, but not letting them go the length of their leash onto others lawns is also expected. The ideal situation would be to have your dog relieve themselves in your own yard before going for a walk, but if they do relieve themselves somewhere else, PLEASE PICK UP AFTER THEM! This is becoming a problem that we would like solved. We even have people that do pick up after their dogs that throw the bags down the catch basins instead of disposing of them at home and that needs to stop! Thank you for your cooperation and a special thank you to all the walkers that do the right thing!     ……………………..  Nancy Froio


"Dog Talk" - Speaking of our 4 legged friends .....  There is talk about trainers not recommending using the retractable leaches because the dog gets to control you  rather than you controlling the dog ! We like that because it keeps them off of peoples lawns so please try that !  We are sure that you will have better control of your canine friend and neighbors will see that you are being a good neighbor ! :-)  ........................... Thanks for the info "A"

Update Phonebook: A blue sheet with phone number corrections will be available at Henrich Hall and at the office (where the printed version of the Chitchat is always located). Please take one and enclose with your own park phonebook. .....Thanks  

There may be some workmen that will be looking in the woods at where the storm drains end up ! Don't be alarmed if you see someone there. Also you may see someone taking a look at the areas behind the homes checking on common areas. Work continues on different septic installations as well as springtime raking and planting of grass in the areas affected !

As always ................................Thank you for your patience as we grow !
