Last month Raintree’s Landscaping Committee transplanted shrubs and other plants from the new shed area at the end of Cottage Grove to the small park located next to Building #2. Be sure to check out the photos! This was a great way to use existing plants for other areas of the community. So far, it looks like all the plants are doing well in their new locations.
Starting at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 2nd, DynaFire will perform intermittent testing of the audibility of the fire alarm system in PHASE 4 (Cottage Grove Court) only. Access to all units and rooms will be required. This is only a test! What phase am I in?
At the March Board meeting, there was some discussion related to water collecting
