Leaf Removal Announcement

As you are aware we are having issues with our leaf removal program. In March, we contracted with Green World Global to remove our leaves. Our contract calls for five passes in the fall and one in the spring. The passes were to have been completed by December 1st. Obviously this has not been the case. Yesterday, Green World responded to our repeated requests for information. To be brief, they are citing weather as the only reason for the delay. They stated that they intend to make the remaining passes dependent on weather. While I believe they will make the effort we are at the mercy of the weather.

We are meeting with a Green World representative on Tuesday. A question of the number of passes completed has come up. By my recollection they have made two passes through the neighborhood. They maintain that they have made three. I request that if you have had three passes please let me know. It is important that I have this information for our Tuesday meeting. My phone is 271 – 0682. You can leave a message on our answering machine.

I believe the issue is more complex than a weather delay. The Board understands your frustration and is working towards a resolution. We are all in the same boat.
Thank you for your patience.

3 New “No Trespassing” Signs

Neighbors,

We are pleased to have neighbor/attorney, Randy Arndt, on our HOA board.

You may have notice three new “No Trespassing” signs throughout the neighborhood.  A No Trespassing sign  is merely a defense to liability, as is any warning sign.   However, the sign itself will not absolve liability.  It further changes the status of the person that has entered the area so that the ability to make a liability claim is severely diminished.  Unless it is an attractive nuisance (something that would attract a child’s curiosity), we will keep the sign in place to keep liability down.

Rezoning of 165 Acres Behind Marlowe & Barryknoll

Good Morning !

The rezoning of the 165 acres behind the homes on Marlowe Way and Barryknoll Way has been approved by Milton County. The land will be rezoned from farming to residential. The approval will then go to Cass County for approval, then back to the Trustees of Milton County. Milton Township is a “civil township” of Cass County. I don’t think there were enough of us present, voicing our opinion, at the October 7th meeting. There were approximately five Knollwood residents in attendance and only two of us shared our concerns.

The biggest concerns were lack of nature/wildlife, and increased traffic on an already dangerous corner of Gumwood and Redfield.

As you may have heard, Adams Road Development is planning a new subdivision, with approx. 100 homes, on that land.

KHA Board Wants You

We are always looking for new volunteers to donate their time and help us run our Knollwood Subdivision. If you have the time, we have the need for new blood with fresh ideas. Lastly, if you are an attorney and would like to volunteer your time, we would also like to hear from you. We welcome the all your ideas and input to help make our neighborhood a better place. Please contact a KHA board member or send our thoughts or ideas to KHABoardMember@yahoo.com
