Hello neighbors! Please fill out this TCHOA Halloween poll concerning what we as a neighborhood should do on Halloween.
Please return your completed questionnaire via email to Marilyn Howard, Board Vice President, at email@example.com , or via hard copy to 2552 King Street.
TELL YOUR NEIGHBORS!
One of the topics raised at the Annual Meeting was Halloween in Turkey Creek, with many residents expressing unhappiness about how a fun and exciting annual event for kids has become a massive headache, complete with vandalism and other crime.
The Board has taken suggestions from several residents over the past year about what to do about this. It was decided at the Annual Meeting to send out a questionnaire, or poll, with several options of how to change our plans for Halloween in 2013 and beyond, incorporating our neighbors’ suggestions, with a view toward developing a neighborhood strategy for Halloween.
We understand that we can’t force our neighbors to participate in any particular strategy (and we wouldn’t want to), but the consensus at the Annual Meeting was that if we don’t make some changes, things will simply get worse every year.
So, please be on the lookout for the questionnaire. Board Vice President Marilyn Howard is in the process of writing it, and she’d welcome your input (firstname.lastname@example.org). Once the Board reaches consensus on the questionnaire, we’ll be distributing it via the website and email.
Robin McIntosh (1101 Pineapple Ave) reported that on January 19 she was in the kitchen and her front door was open, leaving just the screen door. Her dachshunds started barking and ran toward the front door. She heard the screen door slam, meaning someone opened it and then let it go. She called out, and by the time I got to the front door, no one was there. An officer came to the house to investigate, advised her not to leave the screen door open, and to keep all doors and windows locked. He promised that they would keep a close eye on our neighborhood in the near future. He also mentioned that a lot of “salespeople” have been knocking on doors in nearby neighborhoods, and if no one answered, they go around back and break in, out of site from the street.
John Cady, who lives in the first home entering Mandarin Drive, was out shopping on January 1 and came home to find a broken window on the west side of his house behind his wood fence. A large chunk of concrete laid on the floor inside the family room amongst broken glass. His first thought was that someone had attempted a break-in and the dogs scared them off. A further analysis by the PBPD officers who responded believe that it was an act of vandalism. Their theory is that kids might have been on foot through the woods and decided to hurl the chunk of concrete through the window.
