Please note Northville Township lawn waterning ordinance
Northville Township is reminding residents of the township's lawn watering ordinance. As part of the Township's most recent water bill, the Township included a flyer that outlined the ordinance. A copy of that flyer can be found by click on this link: Northville Township Lawn Watering Ordinance. The key highlights are:
Maintenance completed throughout subdivision
Some of you may have noticed that we had a contractor performing maintenance at various locations around the subdivision such as the Dunswood entrance, Whitehaven east of the entrance, Whitby Drive, Weatherfield, Appleby Court, Croydon Court and Stone Haven. The contractor completed weeding, spraying for weeds, trimming and removing some plants.
North I-275 closed until Labor Day
The Michigan Department of Transportation has closed northbound I-275 until Labor Day for major work through Livonia, Farmington Hills and Novi.
The department plans to keep residents and motorists informed of the project via a new website with information, dubbed "Revive I-275." It can be found at www.revive275.com.
Important voting info from the Northville Township Clerk
The Northville Township Clerk's office is interested in reaching as many registered voters as possible with the information concerning the upcoming elections, especially the Nov. 8 election. The option to vote a "straight party" ballot has been eliminated in Michigan for all future General Elections beginning with the Nov. 8 election. The November ballot, which includes electing the president of the United States, is always a long ballot with federal, state, county, and local elections as well as college board elections, local school district and library board elections and state and local proposals.
Many voters in Northville Township vote a straight party ballot. Since that option is no longer available, voting will take more time than in previous elections. Even with the placement of additional voting booths at the polls, the lines will be long.
The township is encouraging voters to consider voting absentee ballot for all elections. Click here to apply for an absentee ballot. To sign up for the Permanent Absentee List (PAL) call the Voter Registration Hot Line 248-662-0541.
A few things to help keep the neighborhood safe
There are a couple of things that homeowners can do to help keep our neighborhood streets safe:
Important information about sump lines
We've received a few questions about sump lines running from our homes in the subdivision. Sump lines are the responsibility of homeowners. They must tie into the
rear yard storm drains. They are not allowed to drain into the street. They
should be checked regularly for proper operation to avoid flooding and pump
failure. If they are overflowing then they need to be serviced quickly, e.g. cleaned out or replaced. The association uses:
Metro Environmental Services, Inc.
PO Box 725
Walled Lake, Mi 48390
(248)960-1111 ph (248)669-0960 fax
If a rear yard storm catch basin is full of water and not draining properly then please alert the board right away. If the obstruction can be cleared with a water jet then the association pays. If actual repairs are required, then all the houses connected to the rear yard storm drain line in question will share the cost.
Help keep our neighborhood clean
We need your assistance in helping keep our front entrance and Commons area from becoming dumping grounds for trash. Most recently, we've noticed trash being left near the entrance to our subdivision. If you spot any garbage being left near the entrance or Commons area, we would appreciate it if you could take a moment and pick it up. Thank you for your assistance.
