Summer fun now turns to fall projects - that list you told yourself you would get done as soon as it cooled down - plant grass, paint, repairs around the house that help our neighborhood stay a nice place to live and play. Rockwood is a covenant community; as you are making structural improvements to your home, please review with a board member or HOA management whether those improvements should be approved by the Board. The Board is currently reviewing bids to paint the brick wall around Rockwood, a major project to help protect our investment in our neighborhood. More information will be available as those plans solidify. Watch your email for information on the Fall Clean-up Day which is currently scheduled for October 10th.
Safety First - We have a lot of residents who enjoy walking the neighborhood, and as the days are getting shorter, they are harder to see. Drivers, please watch for pedestrians, kids on their bikes or walking down to the park. Walkers/Parents - please wear reflective clothing, carry a light, reinforce with the kids to watch for traffic.
The volleyball courts and park are still available for Rockwood homeowners. The park is open all year. The volleyball courts are open upon request. Please contact Larry Duntz in advance if you would like to use (the restriction is only for the protection of the courts/net from varmints and mischief). The nets will be put away for the winter later in the fall.
If you have ideas to help improve the park - how it looks, plantings, seating, now is a great time to pass those ideas along to a board member so that we can budget for next spring. Please help keep the park and courts picked up and clean (waste bags provided at the gate to clean up after your pets). Report any issues to a member of the board. AND have fun!
Thank you!! To pool managers Joe and Evan for their commitment to provide a full summer of swim classes, swim team and a safe and fun pool! To all the staff who worked all summer to keep the pool the place to be this summer! And to all the members for doing their part to play safe. See you next Summer!

Please slow it down & watch for people walking and riding bikes. School is out of session, kids are out on their bikes and people out walking, especially around the RRF!! Walkers - Please wear light colored , even reflective, clothing to be more visible to traffic.

IMPORTANT: The dumpster in the Recreational Facility parking lot is available for your use if space is available in the dumpster. PLEASE, if you take items to the dumpster, and it is full, DO NOT place items on top of or on the ground around the dumpster. The dumpster is emptied three times per week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday; please just wait until it has been emptied. Please, ask your contractors to dispose of refuse properly, NOT in the RRF dumpster. Your neighbors, not trash service personnel, are the ones cleaning up the area.
