TRAFFIC & SPEEDING update: The Westbrook Traffic Authority is very concerned with folks speeding through all associations in Westbrook, as well as running of Stop Signs. The Westbrook Police have agreed to step up enforcement throughout the area and GBP was one area that was suggested, being that I was present at the meeting and spoke up THIS IS A WARNING; THEY WILL BE WATCHING FOR VIOLATORS. PLEASE DRIVE RESPONSIBLY THROUGHOUT OUR COMMUNITY.
PLEASE remember that the Speed limit is 20 miles per hour on our Association roads. Be cautious of people, kids, cars, balls rolling into the street. Remember that cars must be parked 25 feet from Stop Signs. We are very fortunate not to have any accidents or injuries on our property! Please remind your neighbors and guests to be sensitive to the speed limit.

RUBBISH UPDATE: Hometown Waste will be using two separate pickups for all rubbish and recycling. Due to the enormous amount of recycling we do, they have decided to send one truck for recycling and one for rubbish. If it is not picked up all at one time, do not panic and call them, they will be back for the rest.
Please continue to recycle!

BlockWatch / Neighborhood Crime Watch


Reminder – as things happen call Troop F /Westbrook police ASAP. An effective Block watch would have a Single Point of Contact for your Block Watch section. A Block Watch committee is responsible to behave the way you want. Keep it simple and manageable. If people move, replace them on the committee.
    Things to look out for:
  • Suspicious vehicles
  • Vandalism
  • Going through stop sign
  • Wrong way on a 1 way street
If you see a violation, you can report it & file a formal complaint – you would go to court if you are a witness
    How to make your home safer?
  • Put house number in a visible well lit location
  • Keep a light on the porch
  • Keep hedges trimmed
  • Lock all doors
  • Security stickers/camera – ( it doesn’t have to be in working order)
  • Know your neighbor!
Bottom line: USE COMMON SENSE!!!
BE AWARE!!!
