Friendly reminder to secure your pool key in a safe place for the winter as it is a $50 fee to replace the key (card). Also the gym will,
unfortunately, remain CLOSED due to vandalism in the past.

Outdoor Cats have been wondering around in the
neighborhood. Male cats are VERY territorial and will
fight for that territory, which will be on other people’s yards. Please restrain your cats.
Cedar Mill got a gym? Please send suggestions to the
HOA Board on how to keep the gym from being vandalized.
TRASH around the neighborhood has increased since
construction started. The HOA Board will report to
D.R. Horton.
Construction trucks going down the wrong streets.
The HOA Board is going to notify the D.R. Horton in
hopes of having signs put up that will guide the truck
drivers down the correct streets towards the construction sites.
NO DUMPING OF ANY KIND! When you dump your
grass clippings or leaves, you are killing the underlying
vegetation. When those roots die, the soil washes
away and erodes the land. It is harmful to your property. This is also causing major sewer problems.
Association Approvals Required for Home
Improvements
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Susan for planting flowers at the Clubhouse.
When you are planning to make improvements to your
home that require a building permit, you will also be
required to obtain approval from the subdivision. You
can speed up the process of obtaining necessary permits by sending us your plans in advance. Please ask
your contractor to get you copies as quickly as possible.
If you can fill out the form (available on the web site),
we can handle it more quickly. Remember to include your
name, address, phone number and email when you send
or deliver your material.
Jim for putting colored lights on water wheel.
Your Neighbors Are Improving Their Homes
Renters that take care of their yards.
Cedar Mill residents are making home improvements. The
committee has received more than three requests for

things about our neighborhood's desirability. Our location, and school district is unbeatable.
