Kudzu – our neighborhood is not immune from the invasive Kudzu. A Lakemoor Hills Kudzu committee has been formed to address this threat to our properties and property value.
We are currently identifying the Kudzu locations in our peninsula. Below is a list of locations. If you are aware of any locations not listed below please respond to this post and provide the location (address and brief description)
1. Montlake between the Church and Tall Pines – both sides
2. 3616 Blow Drive – across the street from that address in a tree
3. Montlake entrance – no action will be taken at this time until we see what the Alcoa construction brings us.
4. Maloney entrance – UT property
LOCATION CHANGE FOR TONIGHT’S HOMEOWNERS MEETING
Due to parking lot being sealed at Lake Hills Presbyterian Church, our meeting for tonight is being relocated to the North Campus of Sevier Heights Baptist Church. It is located right beside CVS on Alcoa Highway in the shopping center. There is plenty of parking and we are having an excellent presentation from the Knoxville/Knox County Emergency Management Agency.
See you tonight,
Our garden club has 200 daffodil bulbs dug and ready to plant. We will deliver them to you for $10/dozen; or if you want to naturalize a large area, you can have them all for $150. These are top grade bulbs. If you want to buy them, call Mary Cartwright at 579-5617 or e-mail your order to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can still dig your own daffodils and lilies for $5/dozen in the garden at Alcoa Highway and Montlake. If you have already dug, please make your check payable to Lakemoor Hills Garden Club and mail to 4000 Maloney. Our digging seems to be greatly outdistancing our paying, so if you’ve already dug please make your payment.
TDOT has just announced that they will hold a meeting for everyone who will be impacted by the first phase of the construction on Alcoa Hwy at Sevier Heights Baptist Church- North Campus (Old Food City) at 5 PM on April 28. Please share this message with everyone that you know that would be impacted.Stakeholder’s Meeting (2)
For decades, the Lakemoor Hills Garden Club has delighted in welcoming you to your neighborhood with beautiful flowers at Alcoa Highway and Montlake Road. Now with the welcome improvements to Alcoa Highway, we need to dig it.
You can dig your own Stella d oro day lilies , Dutch Master (King Alfred improved) daffodils, and Tahiti daffodils for $5/dozen. This is an honor dig. Each clump of day lilies will contain about 30 plants and each daffodil clump about 20. Count individual plants or bulbs or estimate your clumps. Please be generous, because we are. The lilies are at least $3/each retail and the daffodils $2/each retail. Dig, count your plants, be generous and mail or drop off your check to Lakemoor Hills Garden Club to Mary Cartwright, 4000 Maloney Road. If you want to be over-the-top generous, dig, don’t count and make a huge donation to Lakemoor Hills Resource Council for the Bluff Point improvements. Send or mail your check to the same place.
If you wish to wait and have me dig your plants, I’ll be happy to do so for $10/dozen beginning May 1. I’ll post another notice then.
Thanks for making your neighborhood a credit to us all.
The March Homeowner’s Meeting was postponed and is rescheduled for Tuesday, April 12 at 7 PM at Lake Hills Church. This month’s guest speaker is Debbie Ailey from KUB. The Flint, Michigan water issues have naturally raised concerns for our own safety here in East Tennessee and Ms. Ailey will be addressing these concerns.
Announcements will include updates from the Lakemoor Hills Helpers, our emergency response group; the annual neighborhood picnic (May 21), which includes a car show and art exhibit; Alcoa Hwy update; raccoon safety; kudzu and other issues of interest. Dogwood mailbox bows will be available for $5.
There will be no mailbox flyers announcing this meeting, so if you have a neighbor who does not check the LHHA email, please encourage them to come.
Just a reminder that tomorrow night’s meeting has been postponed until 4/12.
Hope to see you there.
Update from Kathy P. :
The LHHA meeting that was scheduled for next Tuesday, March 15 is being rescheduled to April 12 at Lake Hills Church. We hope to have a presentation on the impact of the road construction at Alcoa Highway, which is to start within a few weeks.
Pink and Green bows will be available at the meeting to decorate your mailboxes for Dogwood Arts Festival. ($5)
Everyone is invited to be part of the Neighborhood Cleanup effort on March 19. We will meet in the church parking lot at 9 AM to get our assignments and supplies. Pizza will be served in the church pavilion about 11:30. We will also have Dogwood bows available at this time.
We just learned today that TDOT has awarded the contract to Charles Blalock & Sons for the first phase of the Alcoa Hwy renovation. This contract covers the renovation from Woodson Dr. to Maloney Rd. This will impact all three entries to our neighborhood. There has been no construction schedule released at this time, but as soon as we are made aware of impacts to our subdivision, we will post them here and on the neighborhood Facebook page. Kathy Proctor is acting as the TDOT point of contact for Lakemoor Hills and will share information as soon as it comes available. We will be scheduling a special neighborhood meeting to hear directly from TDOT and the contractor in the near future about the specific impact and timeline and will let everyone know in advance so you can be sure to attend.
Entering the subdivision yesterday I noticed that there was a large amount of debris adjacent to the parking area just west of the triangle at Alcoa Hwy. The more I thought about it the madder I got so today I went by to see if the bags of trash included identification that could tie it back to the owner. I took these photos when I realized the extent of the debris – bags of trash, a blue plastic tub and many, many quart beer bottles. When I peered into the blue tub, there was an animal leg (with hoof), and the bag closest to the tub seems to be filled with more decaying animal parts – perhaps deer (?). I cannot believe that anyone who actually lives within our neighborhood would do this and I ask all of you to be vigilant to speak out to anyone that you see contributing to this disgrace. Does anyone know if the city or county will help remove these animal parts as it certainly may be a health issue?
