New automated trash collection coming

If these trucks are anything like the county recycling trucks, they probably won’t fit into the cul-de-sacs (or they’ll try and just tear up curbs, trees, bushes, etc).

Consider moving your trash cans to Charing Cross or Leicester if you live on Paddington or Portsmouth.

Water Outage this Morning

Heads up – the City is doing repairs to the water main under Charing Cross Road this morning and said that they will be turning off the water for what they estimate will be an hour or two.

New server for the web site

We’re consolidating all our different web sites on one platform, and moved Parkshore3 to WordPress today. As always, please let us know if there are any issues (I’m aware of the missing pictures..).

2019 Landscaping Fund Donations and Block Party

Mark your calendars – our Sixth Annual Potluck Block Party is planned for Sunday April 28th from 4-6 pm. It will be held at our usual site, the cul de sac at Paddington Circle. It is a great time to renew friendships and meet our new neighbors. Hot dogs, condiments, paper plates / utensils (etc) will be provided, but please consider bringing a dessert or covered dish to share.

Many thanks to our Parkshore III neighbors who help keep our little community looking great by supporting the voluntary landscaping fund. Without your support, we wouldn’t have the neighborhood islands trimmed, planted and mulched. Pine straw will be put down in the islands around our neighborhood in the coming weeks. We are also very grateful to all of our families who have contributed in the past and hope you will continue to contribute to the 2019 fund. The suggested donation is $100, but any amount is very much appreciated! Donations can be made to Parkshore III HOA and delivered to our Treasurer, Pam Luhn, at 10 Charing Cross Road.

Happy Spring, neighbors!!

We’re going to be TV Stars!

HBO’s filming their “Righteous Gemstones” TV show in the neighborhood on Wednesday 3 April 2019. There might be slight delays getting down Windsor Dr that day.

The production company dropped fliers at everybody’s front door with details.

What comes of the Pig?

Got this in email from the City:
