Phase I’s covenant comes due for renewal Dec. 31 of this year. We are looking for residents of Phase I (the oldest section of our neighborhood) to volunteer for a committee to review the covenant for possible changes. Betsy Smith will lead the new committee which will bring any suggestions to the board. Any volunteers should contact Betsy Smith email@example.com.
Every week I see rows of full lawn bags lining the curbs after weekends of hard work keeping your yards pristine. The next time you do yard work remember to walk your sidewalks looking for low branches which make normal sized folks duck in avoidance. A quick pruning will allow all of us to use the sidewalks safely. All the dog and people walkers thank you in advance.

A time to review last year’s association activities and events and upcoming activities and events that will benefit all in our community.
The neighborhood website “NextDoor” has recently started a page devoted to Liberty Lakes. Nextdoor is a social networking service for neighborhoods in the United States. It allows users to connect with people who live in their neighborhood and nearby neighborhoods. It offers local police news reports specific to our neighborhood, requests between neighbors like babysitting offered and needed, and much more.

I attended the Liberty Township Zoning meeting on December 21 at the Township Hall. The Epcon Condo proposal was the major issue on the night’s agenda. The hall was packed with neighbors from Wedgewood Place and a couple of people from Bainbridge Mills. Wedgewood Place neighbors sought to defeat the proposal for rezoning due to the fear of drainage problems and the issue of density. A number of residents spoke. Bainbridge Mills residents spoke to increased traffic and desiring Waterbury Lane to be extended into the Hardin / Church property. This would have resulted in increased traffic through our neighborhood. A number of realtors spoke to the need for condo housing with the demand for this type of housing being great. I spoke for the proposal stating that Epcon had made adjustments for density, drainage, parking, lighting, and had maintained good communication during this process. A major fear was that this land will be developed and multi-family housing is always a possibility.
The trustees then openly discussed the pro’s and con’s of the rezoning proposal.
It became apparent that the fear of what the land could be used for was paramount. The trustees then voted 2-1 to accept the Epcon Condo proposal.
I believe that the condo community will be developed beautifully and will be a positive for our community.

As we have been spending a lot time talking about zoning and property sales and condos, etc. this year, I wanted to take an opportunity to invite members of Liberty Lakes Home Owner’s Association to Sawmill Baptist Church’s 2015 Christmas Cantata, “Images of Adoration.” The cantata is focused on seeing the image of Christ in the symbols of Christmas.
I have attached an advertising flyer below with more information, including a request for donations for the Dublin Food Pantry. I hope you will be able to join us for this special event.

Talking with Pastor David Nuhfer, We have learned that Epcon Communities and Delco Water and Sewage are negotiating a possible impasse. Tuesday, December 7th is the Township meeting with the Epcon Condo proposal on the agenda. The other two neighborhoods are still of the belief that single housing with lots as large as ours is still feasible financially for a developer.
Deep root fertilization of our twelve trees on Salisbury has been performed. We decided to forgo the water bags for the trees and count on the usual rainy Ohio fall to provide free watering.
Hidden Creek has been selected for our landscaping services for the next two years.
Earth Art will be doing our sidewalk shoveling whenever there is two inches or more of snow.
Aqua Docs will soon turn off the bubblers and remove the fountain and store it for the winter.
