DOGS – We received a phone call from a resident recently who has been approached by aggressive off-leash dogs while walking through the Sleepy Hollow area. We would ask that people keep dogs confined to their yards, or have them on leash. If you take your pooch to the Miltonvale Community Park, dogs should be leashed until they are inside the dog park.
Please help keep all our residents safe and comfortable.
Upcoming Events: There are still lots of events being planned – watch for dates as they get organized!
