Board Bulletin October 11
Posted on Oct 11th, 2021
The next meeting of the LAIA Board of directors has been postponed to a Zoom meeting on October 20 at 6:30 PM.
 
Aberdeen Road Work This Week
On Tuesday and Wednesday, October 12 and 13, Aberdeen at Loch Alpine Drive will be excavated to replace the culvert under the road.  Aberdeen will be open for vehicle traffic, but will require a detour through the club parking lot for both days. Motorists may want to consider Northgate Drive as an alternative route.
The culvert trench will be back-filled with road gravel only for approximately three weeks to allow compaction by vehicle traffic, then paving completed.  
Board Bulletin September 23

Thank You, Volunteers!
The Labor Day Celebration was a great success, thanks to everyone who came out and made the day so much fun! We are very grateful to several volunteers who helped with the Family Field Day at the Park and with the evening fireworks show. Special thanks to Katie Roycroft for organizing and leading the Field Day fun, along with Paul Roycroft, Amy and Seder Burns (and daughter Penelope) for all their help with set up and clean up! Kudos to Bob Sendra for his coordination of the fireworks and set-up; Peter Logan for safety and security set-up; Mike Howell for safety and security at the launch site, and then cleaning up pyrotechnics debris on Midway the next morning; and to Jim Schulz for his assistance in traffic management and clean-up following the fireworks.  
 
´╗┐Also, we salute new and former resident Christopher Stilwell for “suiting up” and removing a danger to pedestrians and bicyclists of all ages -- a large hornet nest hanging near a mailbox stand on Midway.
 
New Fire Station Open House
For over two decades Webster Township has planned to have a fully staffed fire station to respond to emergencies in our Township. The parcel next door to the Township Hall on Webster-Church Road was purchased years ago with the purpose of providing a location for the station. The Township Board created a Capital Improvement Fund to provide funding for the construction of the building; therefore, no new taxes or bonds to build it!
The station is now complete. On Saturday, September 25, there will be an open house from 10 am to 2 pm, with a dedication ceremony at approximately 10:30 am, outside, weather permitting. Refreshments will be available. Please wear a mask and take the opportunity to tour your new facility.
 
Ditches and Culverts
Keeping Loch Alpine ditches and culverts clean of branches and leaves, is the responsibility of individual residents, and it benefits the entire community by allowing correct storm water flow. At times in the past, clogged ditches and culverts have caused water to back up onto the streets--especially problematic in freezing temps that cause icy and dangerous conditions for drivers and pedestrians. As part of your routine lawn maintenance and fall clean-up, please remove and dispose of leaves and debris from ditches and also clear as much debris as possible from culverts adjacent to your lot. The Board and our entire neighborhood thank you.

Community Connection
An Open Letter to Dog Owners
Most of you leash your dogs while walking them on Loch Alpine streets, parks and pathways. The entire Loch Alpine community thanks you for being law-abiding and courteous in this way.
 
To those who sometimes take your dog off leash, we have a short but earnest request: Please don’t. Even good dogs need to be leashed at all times.
 
Respectfully yours,
  • The Loch Alpine Board of Directors
  • Dog owners who always leash their dogs even when they wish they didn’t have to
  • Neighbors who are frightened by unleashed dogs -- even “friendly” ones
  • Dogs who tend to be frightened by other dogs (or act aggressively toward them) 
  • The animals, birds, and other wildlife with whom we share this special place

The Loch Alpine Award
LOCH ALPINE IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION LOCH ALPINE AWARD
 
The Loch Alpine Award was established by the Loch Alpine Improvement Association to recognize a person or persons who have demonstrated Exemplary efforts, Commitment and Dedication to the Loch Alpine Community.
 
In 2021, Sheila Waterhouse was recognized for leading our Communications Committee since April, 2018, and in that time she worked diligently to:
  • Set up processes to simplify our regular Board Bulletin
  • Cleaned up our email lists and set up processes with our management company to upload new resident information
  • Provided training to committee chairs and Board members on the use of the Google drive for better efficiency
  • Led a subset of the committee to complete a special outreach to residents who did not have emails on file, which also led to numerous individual arrangements to resolve these issues
  • Enhanced the look and frequency of our regular communications and website for Loch Alpine residents
Thank you, Sheila, for all of your contributions to our communication efforts for Loch Alpine residents.
 
The Loch Alpine Improvement Association is proud to have honored recipients of the Loch Alpine Award since 2001 (prior to 2013, the award was designated the Sendra Award).  The previous recipients can be found here.
