The Fourth of July is right around the corner and with it comes both excitement and frustration. The excitement comes from the day off work, cook-outs, time with family, and the fun of setting off and watching fireworks. The frustration is caused by neighbors who continue to set off their fireworks late into the night. Meridian City Code limits the use and sale of fireworks to between midnight June 23 and midnight July 5 in the summertime. The City noise ordinance prohibits any activity between 11:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. that will “unreasonably disturb or interfere with the peace, comfort or enjoyment of others….” Fireworks displays are only allowed within those hours if a permit has been obtained in advance from an authorized government entity. Other sounds considered to be public disturbances are horns or sirens, repetitive motor vehicle sounds, yelling or shouting, noise from buildings, motor vehicle sound systems, and audio equipment. Please be courteous to your neighbors and finish your use of fireworks before 11:00 p.m. on July 4th, and be respectful of the “quiet hours” all year.
The new Board of Directors for Tuscany is officially in place! Jason Porter is returning as President, Brett Neukam has accepted the role of Vice President, Richard Wright will utilize his financial background as the Treasurer, Jason Brown has opted to be the Secretary, and Dan Shafer will serve as the Member at Large supporting the other positions as needed. As always, there is a lot going on within the community and the Board has another busy year ahead of us!
With all the rain and cooler temperatures we’ve enjoyed this spring the trees have really done well and are making the subdivision look beautiful. The downside is there are numerous branches encroaching on the sidewalks and roadways throughout the community. As a reminder, trees in the swales are the responsibility of the homeowners. Limbs hanging over the sidewalk need to be trimmed up to a minimum height of eight (8) feet to allow pedestrian traffic to walk underneath without having to duck their heads. Tree limbs hanging over the roadway need to be trimmed up to a minimum of 14 feet to avoid obstructing traffic.
The Tuscany Summer Food Truck schedule is in full swing! Take a look at the schedule here, and make plans to enjoy a fun family dinner or sweet treat from one of the great options coming up!
A community movie night is being planned for mid-July (additional details forthcoming), and Tuscany will once again participate in National Night Out, encouraging residents to get out and spend time with their neighbors. We are registered as participants with the City, and can expect it to once again be a fun event for the entire family! National Night Out is scheduled for Tuesday, August 1, 2023.
The new pool furniture is scheduled for delivery in just a few weeks and should prove to be a fantastic upgrade to what we currently have. We hope you are as excited about this as the Board is.
We continue to need volunteers to help with the Pool Committee. If you are a frequent user of any of the pools, we would love to have your help in keeping us apprised of the condition of the pools and assistance with alerting us to any negative behavior. If you are interested, please send an email to MGM at email@example.com.
