No experience necessary!

Start decluttering! The Community Yard Sale returns this year on May 21. More information to come.
 
Ready, Set, Rake!
Weekly yard waste pick-up has begun. Place your material street-side no later than 7 a.m. Yard waste may be placed in large, craft/paper bags or loose in your own, reusable container with a "yard waste" or "compost" stickeron the container (available from GFL or Scio Township). Please do not tape yard bags -- fold them closed or leave them open at the top. GFL will also pick up branches no thicker than 3 inches in diameter tied in bundles no greater than 4 feet in length and 18 inches in diameter.  Your Loch Alpine Grounds and Roads committees are grateful to homeowners for clearing leaves and debris from ditches and culverts along their property.  
 
Update on B2B Trail
Construction was initiated in the spring of 2021 on a one-mile segment from Zeeb Road to Delhi Metropark, with plans for the fourth B2B bridge over the Huron River. Construction bids are being solicited, and it is anticipated that the project will begin construction this summer. Not only will this complete a total of 4.4 miles of continuous trail east of Dexter toward Ann Arbor, it will connect all three Metroparks within Washtenaw County!  For more information about the B2B Trail click here.
Annual Meeting Summary
Posted on Mar 25th, 2022
More than 90 member households logged onto the online 2022 Annual Meeting of the Loch Alpine Improvement Association. LAIA Board President Brian Daugherty hosted the meeting with the assistance of the other officers and directors. Treasurer Lucy Cohen reported on the Association’s budget and finances, explaining the reasons that the annual assessment should remain $775, as it has for the previous four years.  While the webinar format was not ideal for interactive participation for all attendees, members did have the opportunity to submit questions for the Board and committee chairs to answer.  
 
The absentee votes and proxies were tallied and the results announced to the members present:
  • The annual assessment of $775 was approved.
  • Candidates elected to the Board of Directors are incumbents Brian Daugherty, Lucy Cohen and David Stockson, and new director Lisa Carolin.
The Board is grateful to all the candidates for their interest in serving the Association.
 
The annual Loch Alpine Award for exemplary volunteer service to the community was awarded to Doug Ellmann for his contributions to the Legal Committee during the past couple of years, providing ideas and insights pertaining to the ongoing litigation over the former country club golf lots. 
 
Selected by a random number generator, the two winners of the drawing for a 50% reduction in their annual assessment are John and Maryanne Sader, Lot 222, and William and Linda Sohl, Lot 309.
 
Weekly curbside yard waste pick-up begins April 5.
 
The Loch Alpine Community Yard Sale will be held this year. Details to follow.

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
