Reminder: Subdivision speed limit is 25 mph

A reminder that the speed limit on roads within Northville Colony Estates is 25 mph. In response to complaints about drivers not obeying the speed limit and stop signs, the Northville Township Police is more actively patrolling the neighborhood to cite violators and keep the street safe for walkers and children.

Important information about sump lines

We continue to receive 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. Routine maintenance can help avoid future issues. For example, making sure the check valve is operating properly and routinely clearing the sump pipe all the way to the storm drain are critical. If sump line 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 phone; (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.

Safety tip: Light up the neighborhood

There are a number of things that we can all do to help make the neighborhood safer. The following are some tips we are encouraging you to consider:

- Leave your outdoor lights on at nightime. A number of residents have changed to LED light bulbs which are not only more energy efficient and long lasting, but also brighter.

- If you are going away from home for an extended period of time, you can take advantage of the Northville Township Police house check program. The Northville Township Department of Public Safety will check on your residence while you are away. You may fill out a Vacation House Check on the web site, come into the Police Department to pick up a form, or call the Dispatch Center at 248-349-9400 and the form will be completed for you. The information that you provide, will assist police in contacting you or the contact person.

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:

  • Please inspect the growth of your shrubs, bushes and trees to ensure they are not blocking the line of sight for vehicles driving on the street  
  • Please be aware of pedestrians on our roads, especially with the arrival of spring weather. Remember that the speed limit within our subdivision is 25 mph.

  • 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.
