2016 POW Benefit Block Party

The benefit event this year was a great success and the charity selected was the Lyme-Old Lyme High School Band.  The band is one of two bands chosen from New England and will represent the State of Connecticut this December at the Pearl Harbor 75th Commemoration event in Hawaii. The donation of $1,350 will be used to offset some of the equipment expenses the band will incur on this trip.

The first 2 years of this Benefit provided support to our late maintenance manager, Jeff Keish and the past 2 years donations went to Old Lyme town youth programs. Future block party proceeds will be directed to Point O’Woods. The committee is requesting written suggestions for use of future benefits proceeds and a 3-person team will make the final selection.

A special thanks goes out to Mark Stankiewicz and committee.

 

Fall Leaf Pickup

Leaf pickup will begin on November 14th. and run through December 16th.  LEAVES MUST BE IN PAPER BAGS.  You can place your paper bags on the road side and they will be picked up by maintenance.

Bags will not be picked up after the end of pickup season as they can create problems with plowing the roads during the winter.

Tree Removal Policy

If a property owner believes a tree that is next to their property and believed to be on Point O’Woods property, is dying or dead and believed to be in need of removal, the property owner will need to do the following:

  • Provide a recent survey of their property showing the tree on Point O’Woods property with dimensions, markings or “pins” to show the property lines.
  • If the property owner does not have a recent survey, they will need to have said area surveyed by a licensed and certified survey company.
  • They will need to have their property “pinned” or marked with proper markings so we can review land titles and verify property lines.
  • They will need to send this information to the Board of Governors for review.
  • Once verified, the Point O’Woods Board will take steps to have said tree(s) removed.

Stumps will not be part of the removal process. The Board is only willing to take down tree(s) to protect property and for concerns of safety.
