TO ALL, a dumpster has been set in the playground for the express purpose of waste removal by Zahn Builders who are doing the Bere projects. Please do not use this dumpster for yard waste or any private use. Shorewood fall waste dumpsters will be set in about two weeks.

Construction Notes

With Labor Day weekend behind us, construction will resume at the Bere and Stine properties located between 520 and 524 Lakeshore Drive. Construction is continuing at the Ryan residence located at 543 Hillcrest. In addition to these three new home construction sites, two other South Loop neighbors will soon begin remodeling projects involving heavy equipment. They are the Ten Have residence at 528 Lakeshore and the Ytterberg residence located at 550 Hillcrest. All the above projects have received the necessary permitting from the relevant governmental entities. All projects are expected to be completed during the spring of 2018.

The presence of heavy construction equipment and related vehicles will present obvious traffic issues. All contractors are aware that materials will need to arrive on small or medium-sized trucks but a concrete mixer is a concrete mixer. Furthermore, most vehicles would not be able to make the turn from Lakeshore up to Hillcrest. Therefore, the changed signage reflecting the fact that the South Loop is (temporarily) two-way in its entirety will remain in effect until further notice. Please exercise extreme caution in this area, especially in icy and snowy conditions.

South Loop neighbors are not the only ones that need to pay special attention. Construction vehicles need to enter via our front gate and move along the designated route of Orchard and then Ridge to cross over the Lindbergh Bridge. Residents in this area should also exercise extra caution.

Books for the beach: On the hill up from North Beach, residents Rich and Naomi have graciously put up a little red "library mailbox"--take a book to the beach to read, then return it! Good things catch one!  There is now a "library mailbox" on Tower Hill Road as well, right in front of the home of Maureen and Dan Toomey!

Please take note of the mile markers at our beaches.  You never know when you may need them!
