Hot Topics - Flags
The flag poles at the north entry of the community have been modified so that the flags are accessible to the HOA and more easily managed.
 
In an effort to protect the integrity of the flags and keep them positioned appropriately at all times, we are creating a Gateway Parks Flag Committee .
 
If you are interested in being a member of the Flag Committee, please contact me at jpatterson@ccmcnet.com.

Policy Update: Fitness Center & Amenity Use
As always, your safety is our priority! With that in mind we want to remind you of the following policy for amenity usage.
 
Per your signed Facility Use Agreement, children under 16 MUST be accompanied by an adult (18 or older) to ACCESS and USE ANY AMENITY.
 
In particular, the Fitness Center can be an extremely dangerous place for children. Equipment is heavy and expensive to replace, and there is currently no one to monitor this space. Please do not allow your small children to access or use fitness center equipment.
 
Thank you for working with us to make Gateway Parks a great place to live and play!

Mosquito Season
 
It is the time of year when mosquitos come out in full force. Unfortunately due to all the recent rain, they are really making their presence known around here.
 
Although it can feel like an uphill battle, we wanted to share some tips to combat these unfortunate pests.
 
Keep your grass cut short.
Keep trees, bushes, and other vegetation trimmed back on a regular basis.
Use crushed rock instead of mulch around flowers and garden beds.
Empty kiddie pools, birdbaths, watering cans, buckets, and pails every day.
Gather up toys, tools, tarps, and other items that collect rainwater.
Create a drainage line to effectively drain puddles.
Fix leaky fixtures, hoses, and faucets immediately.
Keep rain gutters free from clogs.
Direct rainwater away from your foundation.
Plant lemongrass, catnip, lavender, basil, citronella, and marigolds near-by.

Weeds
All of the recent rain has brought on the weeds in full-force this year. If you’re noticing a yard full of weeds, visit your local lawn and garden store to pickup some pre- and post-emergent treatments. Pre-emergent helps to prevent future weeds, while post-emergent treats weeds that have already made their way through your yard. If you’re struggling to get your weeds under control, we recommend consulting with a landscaping professional to determine what options are best for you and your yard.
