Pond issue update

Posted on by .

On Saturday, August 28, our pond care company will be removing the cattails / reeds at the exit way culvert for our South pond (the cement opening that travels under Salisbury Rd.).

We have had significant build-up and blockage because of these nuisance plants and we must cut them down. By doing this, the natural water flow from the South to the North pond will be greatly improved.

If you have further questions, please contact Breck Brown (614-307-9721) and leave a voicemail message.

Flashing Stop Signs

Posted on by .

We are exited to share new flashing stop signs have been installed at Salisbury & Manchester. Many residents have been concerned about people running stop signs at that intersections, especially so close to Tyler Run where many kids are walking and riding their bikes. Your HOA members advocated for signs and the township installed them this week just in time for the start of school! In addition, we’ve worked with the Sheriff’s department for increased patrols to catch people speeding & running stop signs.

Tree root damage to sidewalks

Posted on by .

Many residents are experiencing issues with the roots of the trees planted in the area between the sidewalk and street causing damage to the sidewalks. As you may know, the upkeep of the sidewalk trees and any damage to the sidewalks are the responsibility of the homeowner. 

If you decide to replace your tree, there is no HOA requirement on the type of tree and HOA approval is not needed. We hope to provide some helpful information that will reduce any future damage and need for you to pay for repairs.

We spoke with a certified arborist with the Dawes Arboretum and he provided this list of recommended trees that are ideal for neighborhood street trees because they are slow growing and their roots will grow deeper. He also provided several additional tips.

  • The ideal time to plant a tree is when it is around six to seven feet tall and one inch to one and a half caliper (diameter at breast height). 
  • He recommended planting a variety of trees in the neighborhood rather than deciding on one particular tree type, because occasionally a disease or pest damages certain trees and can wipe out entire streets.
  • He recommended against fruit trees of any kind.
  • The attached image has some additional tips on planting and mulching to help the tree stay healthy.

You are not required to choose from the list of trees but we are offering recommendations from an expert to hopefully reduce the risk of future sidewalk damage. Feel free to contact us with any questions at libertylakespowell@gmail.com.
