- Attend a Move-Out Session Briefing with your Community Office
- All personal items should be removed from the home and the home should be left surface clean

Our lawn care service provider will be applying a liquid weed control and pre-emergent treatment to lawns in March, as weather conditions allow. The schedule for treatment is as follows:
- March 1 - March 3: Historic Main Post
- March 6 - March 7: Colyer Manor
- March 8 - March 14: Forsyth
- March 15 - March 17: McClellan
- March 20 - March 22: Warner Peterson
- March 23 - March 24: Ellis Heights
Treatment areas will include all landscape beds, front and side yards of all homes as well as community entry areas. To make the application process as efficient as possible, we ask that you please remove all personal items from your front and side yard turf areas.
Please allow the treatment to dry before allowing children and pets on the treated areas. The treatment application is not harmful to your family or pets. The drying period (approx. 30 min) will heighten the effectiveness of the treatment and help you avoid tracking the material into your home.
The product labels and material safety data sheets will be available at your Community Office for further information on the products used.
Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. on March 12. Set all clocks forward one hour. It is also a good time to test smoke detectors. If alarm does not sound, contact your Community Office immediately.
Spring cleaning is an annual ritual for many people. It is an ideal time to check our homes and yards for dangerous materials and unsafe conditions and to spend the time to protect our families and our property.
For a safer home, add these chores to your annual spring cleaning list:
- Check your house for any stored papers, magazines, or any other combustible materials you don’t need. Pay special attention to areas around your furnace, hot water heater, fire place and clothes dryer. Keep the area under your stairs clear of combustibles as well.
- Check your clothes dryer for proper venting- make sure vent flap operates properly and vent pipe is not restricted. Always use a lint filter, and make sure the lint filter is cleaned after every load of laundry.
- Properly discard any toxic or flammable materials you no longer need. Never mix any flammable or toxic materials together. Place the remaining materials up high and out of children’s reach. Make sure that any paint or any other flammable materials is not stored near a heat source. Do not throw any rags that are soaked with flammables in the garbage.
- Keep yards cleared of leaves, debris, and other combustible rubbish.
- Make sure you clean your BBQ grill and check for leaks, breaks, and other wear and tear. Make sure that you never store propane inside your home or garage.
- While using your grill make sure it’s away from your home and not under an overhang and used only outdoors
- Check smoke detectors and change the battery if necessary. Check fire extinguisher for proper type and placement. Make and practice a fire escape plan now and involve everyone in the home.
