Proposed Tornado Warning Siren – After much consideration and input from many neighbors, the Board has decided not to pursue a Tornado Warning Siren north of Loch Alpine on Joy Rd. The only location that was found suitable by the County would have put the siren, essentially, in the back yards of our neighbors. Given the sound level that would be projected from the siren, we felt the location was unacceptable. We thank everyone for their input.
Security Issues – There have been several issues of vandalism in the last month in the neighborhood. The Safety and Security Committee urges you to report any incidents to the County Sherriff and also drop a line concerning the incident to them or the Board.
Snow Plowing – Winter is just around the corner and we encourage you position Reflective Roadway/Driveway Markers before the winter freeze. These markers are very beneficial to our plow drivers when clearing our roads at night. Marker should be placed a foot or so from the road edge.

Tornado Siren Q & A Meeting - Thursday, November 7, 7:30-8:30PM at Ann Arbor Country Club
The LAIA Board would like to hear your opinions and questions on the proposed Tornado Siren placement/location.
Background: Washtenaw County has proposed the placement of a tornado siren on the north side of Joy Rd, just east of the Northgate entrance to Loch Alpine. Along with the newly installed siren on Huron River Drive, just south of The Preserve entrance, full coverage would be provided to the entire community. LAIA would be responsible for the yearly maintenance cost of approximately $500.
Location: The location selected by the county puts the siren on the north side of Joy Road just east of the Northgate entrance. This would put several residences within 100 yards of the siren. This site has been selected by the county and is the only site to be deemed suitable by the county.
Siren details: In addition to actual warnings, the siren would be tested 7 times yearly – The first Saturday of the month, March through September, at noon. The siren projects a sound level of 130 decibels at 100 yards.
We welcome your questions and opinions at a Questions and Answer meeting this Thursday, November 7, 7:30-8:30pm, at the Ann Arbor Country Club. If you are unable to make the meeting, please fell free to respond by email with any questions or comments.
