Hello Neighbors!

A couple of issues for consideration; yard signs and pets.

As we enter the election cycle, please note the recent change in the sign policy for our neighborhood as it applies to elections (this is an excerpt from the entire attached policy);

c. Political Signs. This policy constitutes prior written permission for the owner of any Lot and Living Unit to display on that Lot one sign supporting or opposing a candidate or ballot measure included in the official voters’ pamphlet for an upcoming city, county, state, or federal election or ballot measure vote, provided the following conditions and limitations are met:

1. Any such sign may not be displayed more than 30 days prior to the election date for the candidate or ballot measure, and must be removed by the end of the day following the election date.

2. Any such sign may not be larger than 18 inches by 24 inches.

3. Any such sign must be placed so the face of the sign is parallel to the street coinciding with the address of the property and is at least 17 feet from the curb edge closest to the house.

Pets are more than welcome in Abiqua Heights! Please remember to observe leash laws and pick up after your pet, especially in “The Commons”. In that light, I’ve been asked twice in the last 6 months to contact visitors about releasing/running their dogs in “The Commons”. Both contacts were positive and one resulted in a meaningful dialogue to include a request by the individual from one of the adjoining neighborhoods. Specifically, just as I asked that our neighborhood be respected for leash laws, and pooper scooping, I’ve been asked to relay to AHHA members a request for us to reciprocate in those adjoining neighborhoods. Please don’t release your dog to run free, play ball and/or “use the bushes” in someone else’s neighborhood. The City built a great “Dog Park” over near the senior center. Please take advantage! Your dog will love you for it!

Enjoy the fall!
