Questions and Comments:

  • Can we consider getting stop signs placed at neighborhood intersections?
    • We will have to contact the city to do a traffic study. 
  • Construction on 19th Updates
    • The neighborhood being built on 19th will be 9 lots and they are not connected or a part of Berry Creek.  There are 4 new lots at the west end of Cypress Mill that may be built on in the future.  The plans show a cul-de-sac/turn around at the end of Cypress Mill.  The HOA will need to discuss bringing the 4 lots in the Berry Creek at a later date. 

Adjourn: The meeting was adjourned at 6:21pm.
