No Motorized Vehicles on Paths and Parks
A reminder for the safety of residents and guests: golf carts, ATVs, motorbikes and other motorized vehicles are not allowed in Loch Alpine parks or on the pathways in the parks and around the lakes. The Board also asks, for safety reasons, that there should be no ATVs or motorbikes on the former golf course, which is private property.
A New Sandbox!
Thanks to Grounds Committee member John Posch and the excellent assistance of Tom Bellisario, the Loch Alpine play area now has a larger sandbox. The Loch Alpine community is made better and even more beautiful by all of our many volunteers!  
Report on Lakes Water
Lakes Committee member Cindy Walton conducted E.coli bacteria testing in both Loch Alpine lakes on June 23. The readings showed a level of 96 E.coli/100ml in the upper lake, 6/100ml in the lower lake. The safety standard is 100/100 ml in any one testing. Another test will be conducted this month.
Protect Your Valuables
If you park your car in your driveway, please remove valuables and lock the car doors. While Loch Alpine is a very safe neighborhood, there have been a few instances in the past of late-night larceny from unlocked vehicles in driveways.  
Airbnb not Legal in Scio
The Board was recently informed by Scio Township that rental of rooms in a single-family home, short term, for profit is a violation of the Scio Township’s Zoning Ordinance’s definition of a family. Short-term rentals of residential properties for Airbnb, VRBO, bed & breakfast, and other vacation or hospitality operations are not permitted. The Board has inquired to Webster Township of any similar ordinance, but we have not received an answer.
Update on the B2B Trail
Construction on another B2B Trail segment is officially underway! A groundbreaking ceremony was held on July 14 at Delhi Metropark for the much-anticipated second phase of the Zeeb Road to Delhi project. Read more on the B2B Trail News page.

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.
  • 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.
Respectfully yours,
The Loch Alpine Board of Directors
