Water and sewer: Right of way
We had two new neighbors on Charolais Dr. contact us this week about the water and sewer work that appears to be starting up again. They received a letter from the Guilford County Planning and Development Department alerting then that the water and sewer lines would be coming through their back yards and that a number of trees would need to be removed, and some outbuildings moved. The County made an average offer in the range of $300 and asked that the letter be signed and notarized, and returned by May 30th.
They did not find these terms acceptable and called the County to ask what their options were. The people they spoke to said that the County is willing to negotiate or threaten to possess your land through "eminent domain", but they have to hear back by the 30th - they don't have to receive the letter by the 30th, but they do have to hear from the residents.
A useful link that they forwarded with info about eminent domain - http://landlaw-nc.com/eminent_domain_faqs.html
If you are in a similar situation, and would like to talk with the neighbors who contacted us, send a message via the web form.
Any further information on the water and sewer status will be posted on the Lynwood Lakes website as we hear about it.
Flood Plain/Insurance changes
We received a couple of emails from Lynwood residents alerting us that they had received messages from their insurance company saying that they would be required to carry flood insurance due to changes in FEMA's definition of what constitutes higher risk flood areas. This could affect all houses around the lakes.
For more information, check back here or use the Contact page and we will put you in touch with the other residents who are researching this issue.
** Decoration contest details to come.
Take out those Bass
Please do not "catch and release" small bass in the Big
Lake. The bass are eating all the brim and crappie hatchling and there’s still
not enough food for the bass, so they tend to stay small. Either allow them to
die before putting them back or move them to the small lake.
