April 2014 Newsletter


YARD SALE: Saturday, April 12, 2014

An ad will be placed on Craig’s List and the Arizona Daily Star advertising this event and signs will be placed in strategic areas.  The times of the yard sale are 7:00 AM until 12:00 NOON.  This is a good time to clean those closets & garages!

Brush/Bulky pickup – Week of Monday, April 21, 2014

The City of Tucson has scheduled the pickup of all tree and brush cuttings and those bulky items too large for the weekly trash pick-ups.  Please set out all of these cumbersome items that are approved by the city for pickup.  This is a great opportunity to discard yard sale remnants.


 A clean, well-kept neighborhood adds to the value of all of our homes.

Everyone in the neighborhood appreciates a well-groomed yard and the coming rains will bring with them a new crop of weeds.  Please keep your yards weed-free.


Be a good neighbor – pick up after your dog. No one wants dog waste left on our sidewalks and front yards.  It is a HEALTH HAZZARD!

Please keep your dog on a leash (It’s the law: Section 4-7 of the Tucson City Code and Section 6.04.110) when walking it in our neighborhood and park.  Always take a baggie with you to dispose of dog waste (It’s the law: Tucson City Code Chapter 4, Section 4-28).  Bag it and put it in your garbage or in the trash containers provided at the park. Report unleashed dogs – 743-7550
