Resident Directory Updates Needed!

The Cramer's Crossing Resident Directory is being updated. If you are a homeowner or a renter and your contact information has changed, please fill out a Resident Directory Update form.  Once you print the form you can mail it to P.O. Box 4076, Dublin, OH 43016.  The deadline is August 3rd.

The Resident Directory contains a list of all addresses in Cramer's Crossing with the names of adult residents. A contact phone number is also required. Optional contact information includes cell phones and e-mail addresses. The form also asks for the names and ages of children (this information is not included in the Directory.)

Once complete, the updated Resident Directory will be distributed to all homes in Cramer's Crossing.

Dalmore Park Progress Report

 The construction documents for the improvements to Dalmore Park have been submitted to the City of Dublin Land Use and Long Range Planning and Zoning Commission for review. That review will take place on Thursday, August 6th.

If no major revisions are required, the project should be put out to bid in mid-August with a contractor secured in September. The actual start of construction will be dependent on the contractor's work load. But due to the current economic slowdown, Dublin officials are optimistic that substantial progress can be made this fall, with final touch-up work next spring.

Once complete, Dalmore Park will feature a basketball court, a bocce ball court, a playground surrounded by a low stone wall, bike racks and much-improved landscaping.

City landscape architects intend to plant weeping willows around the pond's edge, hoping the branch movement will discourage the geese from using the pond. Click here for a detailed planting plan.

The existing shelter house will be refurbished, with a ceiling added to conceal the trusses, currently a favorite spot for bird roosting. Posts will be dressed up with trim and railings will be added around the perimeter.

Emerald Ash Borer Found in Dublin

Dublin City officials knew it was only a matter of time before the Emerald Ash Borer arrived in Dublin...the destructive insects have been found in ash trees northwest of the Riverside Drive and Hard Road intersection.

The Emerald Ash Borer is a non-native insect that burrows into ash trees, eventually killing them. The insect is spreading throughout Ohio, killing millions of ash trees in the Midwest.

There are two acceptable treatment methods for ash trees, soil treatment or trunk injection. Homeowners can purchase soil treatment chemicals at home improvement stores. Tree insecticide injections must be done by professionals. The City recommends that arborists be ISA certified.

The decision to treat or remove ash trees from private property belongs to the property owner.

2009 Annual Assessment - Thank You!

Payment of the annual CCHOA assessment was due on December 31, 2008.

The outgoing Secretary/Treasurer is pleased to report a 100% on-time collection and thanks all homeowners for their prompt attention to this important obligation. The 2009 assessment covers the costs of maintaining all of our beautiful landscaping.

Because of the Board's successful negotiation with the City of Dublin for the City's assumption of turf and pond maintenance, our 2009 budget was reduced by nearly $10,000, saving $135.00 per household.

Our 'Trashy' Neighborhood...

High winds and trash day are a lethal combination, as we all found out on New Year's Day when Cramer's Crossing took on a less-than-pristine look. To put it bluntly, the neighborhood looked trashy!

Please do your part to secure your trash and recyclables each week. It should be common sense, but please put your trash in a trash bag and close it securely. Do not simply dump your loose trash in a trash can. Recycle bins also should have their lids securely attached. Do your best to place your trash cans so they won't tip over and make sure the lid is on. Consider holding some larger items until the following week's pick-up if the winds are that severe. Regularly pick up any newspapers or store flyers that are delivered to your home. Most important, if you are responsible for making a mess, please have the courtesy to clean up your trash.

Trashy Tree LineThe New Year's Eve wind carried holiday wrappings, huge boxes and even entire bags of trash everywhere. Those with yards backing to the tree lines were especially hard hit, where mounds of trash accumulated. Many trees are now "decorated" with unsightly plastic bags. The tree line on the south side of Cramer's Crossing Drive was covered in trash. There were even bags and boxes floating in the ponds.

Hats off to those unknown individuals who took it upon themselves to clean up the mess. By nightfall on New Year's Day, most of the debris had been picked up. Many, many thanks!
