We have received new guidance on our efforts to maintain the neighborhood roads:
Wow, we’ve had a LOT of rain, and there will certainly be more to come this season!
We are scheduling road maintenance as soon as possible. In recent weeks we’ve made arrangements with the road mowing and grading contractors and we’re hoping to get the work started as soon as we can be reasonably certain that the worst of the downpours are behind us. We don’t want our newly graded roads to wash out right away, so join us in being patient a little bit longer until we get past the rain.
NOTE: The date for the annual meeting is Thursday, January 23rd, 2014.
The Management Plan for our neighborhood is complete, thanks to the hard work of many dedicated home owners, the St. Croix Environmental Association and the wonderful environmental enginees at Horsley Witten Group in Massachusetts.
This study gives us a comprehensive plan for managing our roads and all of our drainage issues while minimizing cost, erosion and siltation on the reefs and in the bay into which all of our run-off flows.

Our watershed drains into the East End Marine Park, which is designated a marine protected area and which is funded by NOAA. Because of its protected status the St. Croix Environmental Association was able to get a grant to fund this study, and we hope we will be able get more help as we address the runoff issues in our neighborhood.
