A few weeks ago my wife orgainized a "refresher" Neighbor Watch meeting for our court. Since our original meeting 10-12 years ago we only have three original home owners on our court and she decided it was time to get the "new" neighbors involved.

She made it a "social gathering" at the end of our court(complete with burgers, hotdogs, various other goodies)where all the neighbors could get to know one another better.

A PPD Community Services Officer came out, gave a great talk, answered questions and distributed crime prevention material, which is probably the same, or similar, material offered in the crime prevention packs available at the police station.

For what it's worth, if your neighborhood doesn't have a Neighborhood Watch program, I highly recommend it. It's been effective on our court a couple times. It's a great way to get to know your neighbors, learn what's happening in your immediate area and your city.

Is a disgrace. it looks like a used car lot. if you can't park your car in the garage, then park your cars in the Driveway's. There are at least three car per family. No parking for guests.
Two car driveways, park two cars.
