Attention University Townes Owners On The Garage Side

Please take note that we will begin the Crepe Myrtle tree removal next week. Depending on weather, it may take as long as 2‐3 weeks. They will be installing shrubbery in its place as soon as all of the trees are removed.

Again, the primary purpose for the removal of the tree is because Portrait planted them so close to the unit that they are damaging the roofs, siding, water lines, sewer lines, foundations and sidewalks.

We understand the beauty of the trees, but the damage that they are causing cannot be overlooked. We appreciate your understanding.

Attention Homeowners

– The landscapers will be elevating the tree limbs next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (Jan. 13 – 15) along Hanberry Blvd.

– Due to the hazards of the tree limbs falling, there will be restricted parking on Hanberry Blvd. during those dates.
