A reminder that dues were due on April 1st and are considered late on May 1st. Dues received after May 1, 2016 will be assessed additional late fees in accordance with the By-Laws of Walnut Grove. Any homeowner who has not paid the annual assessment will have their access FOB to the pool deactivated until paid.
The annual community meeting will be held at the Clubhouse on Saturday, June 4th at 9:00 am. We look forward to seeing everyone come out.
Don’t forget the community Garage Sale to be held on Saturday, May 14th from 8:00 am until 12:00 noon. There will be balloons and ribbon for sellers to put on their mailbox to make it easier for buyers to find you. These will be in a box on the porch at 12840 Clear Ridge (near the clubhouse) on Friday the 13th. Feel free to stop by and get a balloon.
The pool will be open on May 19th, which is the last day of school for Knox County Public Schools. With that in mind, a pool workday has been scheduled for May 15th at 2:00 pm. Adult volunteers would be appreciated as many hands would make this task go so much quicker.
As the proposal for adult swim has passed, Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00 am to 10:00 am is now the designated adult swim schedule. Also, if you come to the pool and your FOB does not work but your dues are current, it probably means we did not receive a completed waiver. In order to activate the fob for pool access, we must have a signed waiver on file.
Again, there is NO OVERNIGHT STREET PARKING allowed in Walnut Grove. The streets in WG are too narrow for parking on bothsides of the street and provide enough room for emergency vehicles to pass between them in an emergency. There have been numerous complaints regarding this issue. Let’s all be considerate of our neighbors.
MAR 12, 2015 FORBES
Every day in coastal hot spots like San Francisco, New York, and Boston, it seems the news on housing costs is just abysmal. Professionals in these areas may earn higher paychecks, but many struggle with high rents—and for many, buying a house seems like an impossible dream. But in a host of Midwestern and Southern cities, the economic realities are a lot more palatable.
Take greater Birmingham, Ala. The median family income of $61,000 might be lower than the national average ($63,900), but prices for just about everything are lower there, too. During the fourth quarter of 2014 the median sales price for a home was $130,000, and about 81.5% of homes were affordable to families bringing in the area’s median pay. Paychecks stretch further all around: groceries cost about 5.4% less in Birmingham than the national average, transportation about 13.2%, and health care 16.6%.
Birmingham may not have Los Angeles’ beaches, but it probably has happier drivers, given that the average commute time by car is a mere 24 minutes, according to Brian Hilson, president of the Birmingham Business Alliance. The metro has a strong medical research industry centered at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the Southern Research Institute, and some 70 foreign companies, including Mercedes Benz and Honda, have facilities in and around Birmingham. “You get a lot for your money to live and work and do business in Birmingham,” says Hilson. We agree–Birmingham lands the No. 1 spot on our 2015 list of America’s Most Affordable Cities. See what city is #2
