LAIA Seeking Candidates for Board
The Board of Directors manages the assets and finances of the Loch Alpine community for the Members. Directors serve a 2-year term of office. Candidates are elected (or re-elected) and announced at the March Annual Meeting. This year, there are 3 Director openings to be filled. As the LAIA By-Laws specify that 2 candidates should be presented for each opening, we are encouraging LAIA Members to consider running for the Board.  It’s a limited amount of time required: a monthly 2-1⁄2 hour meeting plus regular email correspondence to discuss issues and conduct business. If you can devote a bit more time and energy, perhaps you’ll lead a committee or a special project.
We hope you’ll consider -- it may be your time to help manage our unique neighborhood. Many of you moved into Loch Alpine just a few years ago. You may have ideas to make the community more welcoming and active for residents young and old. Please contact LAIA Board of Directors President Brian Daugherty, president@lochalpine.org, (734) 756-0442, or any current Board Director to discuss this opportunity. Add your name to the list of many special Loch Alpine volunteers. Your friends and neighbors will sincerely thank you.

Help the Plows
Please remember:
  1. Waste and recycling containers must be removed from streets soon after collection to ensure good snow plowing in front of all residences.
  2. Cars should not be parked on the side of our streets during snowy weather because they make it difficult for plows to clear the roads.
  3. If you hire a plow service for your driveway, you are responsible to clear snow that gets pushed into the road after plowing that causes icy spots or requires extra street plowing.
More Service Opportunities
The Loch Alpine Sanitary Authority (LASA) seeks a resident to join the Authority’s Operating Committee. Please contact David Navarre at david_e_navarre@yahoo.com if you would like to know more about this position, or if you have other questions or concerns about LASA operations and service.

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
