A Letter from Great Oaks
Posted on Mar 21st, 2019
Hello, Lenox Park residences. 
 
With the recent thaw in the weather, it has made the excavation process a little smoother regarding the evergreen root ball reduction, as many of you may have seen throughout the site. We should be finishing this up within the next week and a half to two weeks, weather permitting. Then fertilizing said trees soon afterward as soon as ground temperatures are at optimum conditions. We also have some concerns with the weather we have had this winter, warmer than normal temperatures in December to part of January. Then the twenty to thirty degrees below zero temperatures sporadically throughout February. There could be the possibility of some tree's buds, not opening/pushing leaves late this spring. This can vary from tree to tree.
 
Regards,

Fox Run update
Posted on Mar 19th, 2019
By Gayle C. Hinman
 
Hello all, Last night a handful of us went to the Novi City Planning Commission meeting. I presented as did one other on behalf of the neighborhoods that border on Fox Run. We were told quite brusquely by the chairman that no questions were allowed in that forum. Thankfully members Anthony and Avdoulos (sp?) asked very pointed questions that not only acknowledged our concerns but addressed the things we wanted to ask and more. We appreciated their recognition that wetlands and woodlands should be protected and determined that only .03 acres were going to be effected. Having said that, all revisions being asked for by Fox Run were approved. Now here is the really great part....once the meeting moved on to other matters and we all got up to leave, 3 wonderful gentlemen came out to help explain and clarify the concerns we were evidently struggling with.

Board Bits - March
Posted on Mar 14th, 2019

By Jeffrey Dunn, Member at Large

Since I wear many hats within the Board, I will try and keep this brief. SNOW PLOWING: It has been a very strange and challenging winter for all plowing contractors. Layers of ice and snow and salt costing $135 per ton, whereas a year ago it was $50 per ton. I believe, all in all, that A & R has done a great job this season. Reminder, any damage caused by plowing will start being addressed in late April.

The Operating Budget at the end of March 2019 closed strong again with a balance of $189,454.57. The Reserve Fund (RF) total increased to $790,063.37. This is an increase of about $13,400 over the end of January. February income and expenses occurred as planned with everything working as we anticipated.

Tree clearing work to start as crews prepare for ring road extension

Tree clearing work is set to begin in the coming weeks to prepare for the ring road extensions scheduled to take place this summer. Crescent Boulevard, the northwest quadrant, will connect Novi Road to Grand River Avenue. Flint Street and the future Bond Street will connect Novi Road to Grand River Avenue in the southwest quadrant. Once complete, these roads will help alleviate some of the congestion near the Grand River and Novi Road intersection.
2019’s Top Dog Breeds For Seniors
By Gayle C. Hinman on February 16, 2019
In case you may be interested the following dog breeds have been recommended for seniors living in apartments or condos. They require little to no grooming and some moderate exercise. I found a few of the breeds surprising. 2019’s Top Dog Breeds For Seniors: Beagle, Pomeranian, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Shih Tzu, Chihuahua, Yorkshire Terrier, Miniature Schnauzer, Boston Terrier, Poodle, Bolognese Schipperke , Chinese Crested, Cairn Terrier , Jack Russell Terrier, Bichon Frise, Dachshund, Pekingese, Greyhound, Dandie Dinmont Terrier , Golden Retriever, Maltese. I’m sure there are more suggestions, but these are at least a few to think about. REMEMBER there are always many loving animals to rescue.
12 Mile & Novi Road intersection

Long overdue improvements coming to 12 Mile & Novi Road intersection

Glad to finally be able to announce that this summer, with the help of the Road Commission for Oakland County, the intersection of 12 Mile and Novi Road (also know as the moon's surface) is being replaced. This has been a priority for City Council for a number of years and was scheduled to be done by the County in 2021. We didn't want to wait that long so the City is going to front a good portion of the money and be reimbursed by Oakland County. Now before everyone uses this thread to complain about other roads, I would invite you to visit http://bit.ly/2GKXieL and see who is responsible for what roads. I know Ten Mile Road is always a hot topic, and that is an RCOC road. They are planning some pavement preservation overlay work on it this summer and are undertaking a scoping study to look at what the road looks like in the future.
Fox Run Building
By Gayle C. Hinman on February 7, 2019

Taken from: NEXTDOOR NEIGHBOR & submitted by a local resident:
"Save the Wetlands - IMPORTANT AND TIME SENSITIVE
Did anyone else get the notice from the Department of Environmental Quality, SE Michigan Division, about Fox Run's application to build 2 more senior living buildings? They want to drain yet more wetlands and the DEQ will make the determination to give them permission to do so without a public hearing if there are not comments from the public. They only give you 20 days from the notice which, perhaps due to bad weather, is dated Jan. 29, yet I just got this today, Feb. 6. We only have until Feb. 17 and that is a Sunday. PLEASE JOIN ME in voicing our dismay at the loss of even more of our wetlands and with it the beauty, wildlife, drainage, oxygen production and much more, forever. Contact Sue Tepatti at tepattis@michigan.govor call the office at 586-753-3700. You must reference the application number which is either: 63-41215 Fox Run Dr-Novi or HNJ-Q013-CWAJX You can also comment on their website: https://miwaters.deq.state.mi.us/waters/#/external/publicnotice/searchClick on the documents tab The objections, so the notice says, should be factual, specific, and fully describe the reasons for the objection. Let's flood them with concerns big and small so they get the message clearly that we want a say. I implore you to not be complacent on this issue."
