Leaf Pick-up – On Monday November 12th, our landscaper, Genesis, will pick-up the leaves at Lakeport. By contract, we have two leaf pick-up’s each year. The second will be in early December. Leaves are picked-up on common areas only. This includes all grass areas, roads, common parking areas and areas that are mulched each year. This means that they don’t pick-up leaves from wooded areas or private homeowner’s areas. Since they use blowers to move the leaves to larger piles for pick-up, make sure you secure any loose items that are near the common area. Please don’t place any leaves in the woods. Please pick-up your leaves and place them in bags. You can then place them out with your trash or you can put your leaves on the street (by the curb without the bags) by Monday morning. They will be picked-up by Genesis.

Flood Insurance – Lakeport Cluster is not designated as a flood plain area so we aren’t required to have flood insurance but we live next to a Lake. We all saw the effects of Sandy which has some homeowners asking about flood insurance. One Lakeport homeowner has a policy that costs $450 per year. You can find more information at http://www.floodsmart.gov/floodsmart/pages/residential_coverage/oneStepFloodRiskAddressSearch.action
Monthly Board Meeting – The Lakeport Board meets every month. The date and location for the most current Board meeting is posted on the Lakeport website at www.lakeportcluster.org . The November meeting is on the 15th at 8PM at 1909 Lakeport Way. Please RSVP (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want to discuss an issue or attend.
Ripples – Lakeport has a newsletter called Ripples. Joy Myers (new homeowner/Board member) has taken responsibility to oversee Ripples. Newsletters can be a very valuable communications tool for a community. Joy is asking for volunteers to form a community club (committee) to work together on the newsletter. This could be a great way to help your community and have some fun. If you have an interest in helping to create Ripples, please contact Joy at email@example.com
Hope you all have a great weekend.
