To those with OUTDOOR PETS June 10, 2016

It is a Canton Ordinance that you must have control of your pet(s) at all times. For the safety of your pet AND our residents, that means not letting your animals roam onto other people’s property, and having your dog on a leash when you go for a walk. PLEASE clean up after your pets as you go. To most of us, this seems like common sense, but Canton Twp. Ordinance officers have had many complaints of dog owners not following through on these requirements, and there is a hefty fine for violators. To report a problem, call the Canton Ordinance Officer for our area, Kay Longton, at (734) 394-5210. Residents really DO appreciate your efforts to do the right thing. Thank you for your consideration!

PLEASE CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR PETS! April 15, 2016

Earlier this month, a Georgetown Street resident looked out their front window just in time to see a young woman allowing her small, white dog do his business on their front lawn. The dog owner guiltily looked at the house and then walked away without cleaning up after the dog. This is simply not acceptable! Canton Twp. Ordinance officers CAN fine residents for this violation. The Canton Ordinance Officer for our area is Kay Longton and she can be reached at (734) 394-5210. Let’s all respect our neighbor’s property and do the right thing!

PLEASE SLOW DOWN! March 24, 2016

OUR SUBDIVISION’S SPEED LIMIT IS 25 MPH.
Most recently, a resident along Scottsdale witnessed a driver that had to slam on the brakes in front of a bus stop because they were going way too fast and not paying attention. Rightfully so, that resident called the Canton Police to complain. There is NO excuse for speeding. PLEASE, PLEASE, EVERYONE, SLOW DOWN! We can ALL do our part to keep our neighborhood a safe place to live!

PLEASE—NO DUMPING! COMMON AREAS, EASEMENTS, AND FENCE LINES June 25, 2015

Please—No Dumping!
This is another friendly REMINDER TO NOT DUMP YOUR GARBAGE AND YARD WASTE IN THE COMMON AREAS AND EASEMENTS OF OUR SUBDIVISION. This includes the wooded areas along the eastern-most edge of our subdivision—no matter who owns the property. (In fact, Brookside Village residents have been seen by a former Board member doing just that!) Garbage and yard waste can be set out at the curb for pickup every week on Thursday mornings. Thank you for your consideration!

FIREWORKS RESTRICTIONS June 12, 2015

Posted by graphicsgirl in Announcements.
comments closed

Warm weather brings all sorts of outdoor activites… But, as a homeowner association, the BVHA does not sanction fireworks activities. Please do not bring your fireworks into the subdivision parks. If you do choose to enjoy a few fireworks at your home, PLEASE be considerate of your neighbors. Refer to the Canton Ordinance regarding fireworks, Sec. 46-264, which includes: “consumer fireworks shall not be…used …at any time, except on the day preceding, the day of, or the day after a national holiday” (without a permit); and “… shall not be ignited or discharged within 70 ft of any building, or on any public street.” Also visit www.FireworksSafety.org for fireworks safety tips.

ADOPT A GARDEN May 17, 2011

Posted by graphicsgirl in Be a Good Neighbor.

As you may have noticed, each entry and park sign in Brookside Village subdivision has a small garden around it. Maintenance of these “mini gardens” is not in our lawn care contract… so we’re looking for volunteers! Please call 734-448-1312, leave your name, number, and best time to call, and request that the BVHA President call you back to discuss the details of adopting a Brookside Village sign garden!

According to the Canton Dept. of Public Safety, a Brookside Village resident living on the 200 block of Coronation Court locked her car doors but left the passenger side window rolled down. Her wallet, which was in the glove box, was stolen. Cash and gift cards were also taken. Please watch for suspicious looking individuals hanging around in our neighborhood, and remember to lock your cars and close the garage door before you go to bed!

2017 CREEK CLEANUP IS APRIL 29 April 11, 2017

Posted by graphicsgirl in Announcements, Special Events.

DATE CORRECTION! (Our apologies: date of May 6 in The Brookside Bugle was incorrect.)

Please gather at the South Park bridge (the South Park is across from the intersection of Georgetown and Cheviot) at 10:00 a.m. on Sat., April 29, to help clean up tree debris and trash. Please bring garden tools such as clippers, rakes, or shovels to help with the cleanup. Along with keeping our parks clean, we need to pick up the garbage and clear out the branches along the creek to prevent flooding and to allow the water to flow through without obstruction.

This is not a project that a few regular Board members can do alone — we need subdivision-wide participation to make this work! Last year, of all the people that came to help during the cleanup, just 5 families out of 600 homes were from Brookside Village subdivision — 18 kids and parents from Cub Scout Pack 855 made up the rest of the group!!! Wow! Just think how much more could have been done with more resident participation… Your help through-out the year in keeping our creek and parks clean is very much appreciated!
