First round of fish-stocking was performed recently. Per the advice of experts at TAMU, small bluegill were added which are good for bass to eat and also can be caught with small hooks. Bass will be stocked in the fall when supplies of larger fish are available.
Please lock the gate to the Park when you enter and leave. We have been having non-home owners using the park in increasing numbers. Remember, this is your park.
Next Board meeting is scheduled for Tue., Sep. 8th at 6:30 pm at 1511 Wayfarer. All are welcome to attend.
The spending of up to $3000 to stock fish in the lake was approved at the annual meeting in January. Several residents have supplemented that amount with personal donations. If you would like to make a donation towards that effort, please contact Bernie Bernard at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in serving on the lake committee, please contact Bernie as above or Paul Morris at email@example.com.
A website now exists that is a private online network called Nextdoor Nantucket. Neighbors can share crime/safety concerns, recommendations, ideas, etc. (it might be described as a private, mini-facebook for Nantucket residents only)
Click here: nantucket.nextdoor.com/join and answer a few questions to verify residency to join. Options are available for frequency of emails; e.g. crime info immediately, other items weekly, etc.
The NPA board voted to inform residents of this website, but will still maintain the current email listserve system for important neighborhood news. Nextdoor Nantucket is totally voluntary (as is listserve, but the board encourages neighborhood participation/communication). If Nextdoor proves popular in the future, we will consider asking all on listserve to join instead of maintaining two systems. Lastly, please do not use for commercial/business advertising.

Coyotes have been observed on Scrimshaw Lane and other areas of Nantucket. They can be a danger to pets and humans. Please take appropriate precautions. e.g. Don't leave trash or pet food outside. See: http://www.ci.claremont.ca.us/download.cfm?ID=25718 or do an internet search for additional information.
You must pick up after your dog when they toilet outside of your yard. There are increasing complaints of dog feces left on other peoples property after residents walk their dog. This is a health hazard and against HOA rules.
NO DOGS ARE ALLOWED TO ROAM FREE. THEY MUST BE ON A LEASH. There have been reports of a large black dog and others scaring homeowners using the park. Any dog found roaming free will be picked up by County Animal Control.
