Thank you all for your support at the recent meeting s we had with Kevin Stine our City Council member, Mark Shay from the Fire Department and  the Medford Police Department. These meetings provided important information with your show of support action has been taken by the City to clear the property that borders Aspens on the Creek of overgrowth and several transient camps. The response from our residents has not only helped to protect us but the surrounding neighborhood as well, so THANK YOU ALL!

There will be a question and answer meeting with Sheriff Nate Stickler on October 2 from 6:00-8:00pm at the Community Center. He will have a presentation on the criminal justice system and county jail and then take questions for attendees. Please join us to show your support for our community at this meeting, it will be very informative.

The Semi-Annual Community wide Yard Sale will be October 6 & 7. Get your house and sheds cleaned out of extra stuff before winter. you may start your sale on Friday after the garbage is picked up. Please do not start your sale before then, the streets need to remain clear fro the garbage truck. Please have any items not sold removed by Wednesday October 10.

Have you started to winterize your home yet? Get your skirting secured, gutters and downspouts cleaned out, house pressure washed, any painting updates, pipes wrapped, etc. I know we haven't had much of a summer with all the smoke and we hate to think about winter; however, it will be here before we know it, so get those winter projects completed.

I cannot stress enough how important it is to report concerns right away. Please do no wait a couple of day to report things. You can call Aspens cell phone at 541-210-1683 or the non-emergency Police number at 541-770-4783. We were told at the Q & A session with the Police Department that they keep records of reported activities and adjust their patrols throughout the month depending on where they are getting reported calls from. So please protect yourself and neighbors and call with any concerns.

We have had reports of cats in the neighborhood again. If you have a cat please follow the rules and keep them inside, do not let them run freely. Dogs should be on leashes and not allowed to run freely either. Do not use other resident's yards as a spot for them to relieve themselves. Report any problems with violators of this policy to the office so action can be taken.

Thank you for keeping your yards looking good despite the fact that the air quality has been in the unhealthy to hazardous zone for most of the month. When I get compliments on the beauty of our community I always say it's our resident's who deserve the credit. Keep up the good work, it is appreciated by everyone!
