Forest Oaks News

Thank you

My schnauzer, Johann Sebastian Bark, bolted out the front door this morning and took off running.  I searched for him in the neighborhood for about an hour with no luck.  When I came back into my house my phone rang and it was Memorial Road Pet Hospital calling that someone had dropped him off there.  I have no idea who the Good Samaritan was, but am so very thankful she or he took the time to get him to a safe place.  I would appreciate it very much if you could post a thank you from me on our HOA website.  Margaret North

Question regarding boats parked in the street

Q. Is it allowed to park your boat in the street? A. Not overnight. It is against the covenants, which state: "No campers, boats, house-trailers, or trucks of any kind, including panel trucks or pickups, shall be permitted to be parked in sight overnight in the front of a residence or on any portion of any lot in the addition." Also, it is against Edmond City code to park a trailer in the street without a tow vehicle attached.

We are glad that some of our spring work has been done at the entrance to the neighborhood. We still need to pull weeds and plant annual flowers.
