LEAF RESPONSIBILITY

Howard County does not pick up leaves in our neighborhood. Each household is responsible for their own leaf clean-up.Leaves can be disposed of by taking them to the Alpha Ridge landfill and /or bagging them for County pick-up on Thursdays. Please do not blow leaves into the street and leave for the County. Remember- there is no County service. Please try to minimize the number of days your bags sit on the curb as well. It detracts from our neighborhood beauty. Please be courteous by disposing of your leaves properly.

HALLOWEEN PARADE
The parade is scheduled for Wednesday, October 22 and will start at 7 pm on Dunes Drive and conclude on Congressional Court. The Marriott’s Ridge High School (MRHS) Marching Band will lead all of the neighborhood ghosts, ghouls, and goblins down Pebble Beach Drive to Boca Raton and end up in Congressional Court.

The HCPD and HCFD will be on hand as well for safety reasons. We ask that all residents help us by clearing all cars and leaf bags from the parade route on that night. Many thanks to Kate and Kevin Powell (Congressional Ct.) for chairing this event.

TVO I -STOP SIGNS

At the September HOA meeting, it was discussed that TVO I would ask the County to install several stop signs in the neighborhood. The HC Traffic Engineering Division provided us with nine traffic studies conducted since 1994 and TVO clearly have an opportunity to reduce vehicle speeds and to improve pedestrian safety. A letter has been sent to Councilman Greg Fox and to Kris Jagarapu, HC Traffic Engineering Division for assistance on this matter. For additional information contact James Brown at jamesbrown_923@hotmail.com

2014 TVO DIRECTORY IS HERE!

The 2014 TVO Directory sitting in my garage! TVO I would like to thank the 21 companies, 90% are TVO neighbors, that chose to advertise their small businesses in our directory. Thanks for your support. Distribution details will be forthcoming.

TASK FORCE – STREET SIGNS

It was decided at our September meeting to form a task force to explore replacing street signs and lights in our community. Jeff McConnell (Doral Ct.), TVO I Member -at-Large, has agreed to chair this task force and will report on this matter at our March meeting. We are seeking 3-5 volunteers to serve on the committee. If you are interested please contact Jeff at jeffrey.j.mcconnell@gmail.com or James Brown at jamesbrown_923@hotmail.com.

LANDSCAPING CHAIR

TVO I would like to thank Holly Ritter (Pebble Beach Dr.) for her years of service to the community as chair. Holly plans to focus her recaptured energy and time on her first grandchild. Congrats to you and John.

Angela Nichols (Pebble Beach Dr.) has agreed to fill this role for the community. Welcome aboard Angela and thank you.

RT40/144

In spite of the traffic signal improvements, we are still having issues with the Rt. 40/ 144 intersection. Rt. 40 is a busy intersection and will most likely get busier due to future development. TVO I has asked the state to evaluate this intersection to see how it can be improved. It is listed as SR0216347. For more information contact James Brown at jamesbrown_923@hotmail.com
