Fences – Good News and Bad News
The good news is the wonderful spring rain has caused our lakes and reservoirs to be full. The bad news is that the spring rains have caused our PID fencing projects to be at least 3 months behind schedule.
However our priorities have not changed. Our 830 foot fence replacement for Arcadia Park is now nearing competition.
In keeping with our policy of evaluating the fence conditions based upon the level of aesthetics and cost of repair; and in conjunction with the board we are currently seeking input from several companies to develop a proposed 3 year plan for repair/replacement.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact:

Snakes in Parks
Park patrons may observe snakes at some point due to the wet conditions and hot sunny weather. Please be careful and observant of snakes while in the park.
There are areas that have high populations of snakes such as close to farms and creeks. Snakes tend to go where they will be able to find plenty of food. Farms, creeks, ponds and lakes offer sheltering opportunities for snakes. The aforementioned areas have an abundance of insects and rodents that the snakes can easily use for food. You won’t usually find snakes in places where there are lots of people and lots of movement (trails, playgrounds and etc). This is because they have to depend on the vibrations to pick up movements. In areas where there is constant movement it would be too confusing and overwhelming for them to be able to detect threats or food resources in their natural environment; therefore, it is not likely for snakes to attack.
Advisory Board Vacancy

Basswood Drive Bare Spot Project
The PID along with the Brickman Group is currently testing a spot of sod along Arcadia Trail (entrance of Arcadia Park). This area was seeded with fescue and if this area proves to be successful during the heat of the summer we will begin to seed a section of Basswood. This approved $7,000 fescue project for the bare spots along 1000 feet of Basswood will begin in late September/early October.

Suspicious Activity Awareness
It can be difficult to determine when to report something suspicious. People most familiar with a given environment are in the best position to determine whether or not something is out of the ordinary. Use common sense and read the guidelines.
