One-Way on P Street 

 

The sheriff’s dept. recommended that P Street between 168th and 170th be made

one-way eastbound on school days from 8-9AM and 3:15-4:15PM (1:30-2:30 Wed).

The school and Douglas County supported the recommendation,

which has been implemented.  New signs have been installed.

 

This suggestion was originally made at our 2009 annual homeowners meeting.

Parking on “P” and 174th Streets

 

A fire truck was prevented from promptly responding to a house fire in Autumn Ridge by cars being parked too close together on P Street.  Douglas County had recently performed a traffic study and recommended that "No Parking" signs be installed on the south side of P Street (west of 172nd) and the west side of 174th Street (south of Welch) in order to improve traffic flow.  A survey of homeowners on these streets indicated that 76% of these residents were in favor of the no parking zone.  No Parking signs have been posted in this area by Douglas County.  All Autumn Ridge residents who find a need to park in the street are encouraged to park close to the curb so as not to obstruct passing traffic and emergency vehicles.  Thanks to everyone for their cooperation in this matter.

 

       

 

One topic of discussion at the annual meeting was trash receptacles that are being stored in some driveways.  ARHA, and your neighbors, appreciate the cooperation of everyone in keeping their trash cans stored out of sight, as it gives our neighborhood a cleaner and neater appearance.   Thank You!

 

       

 

Roofing Alternative

 

The roofing survey which was sent to all AR Homeowners indicated a preference by 90% of the respondents for a roofing option in addition to wood shakes.  To address the desires expressed by most of our homeowners, the ARHA Board has approved a resolution which provides an alternative roofing option, while maintaining an upscale, consistent look in our neighborhood.  Click here for more info.

Covenants Info

 

            Covenants are the legal requirements we are all obligated to follow when we purchased property in Autumn Ridge.  They are designed for the protection of real estate values in our neighborhood, something important to all of us.  You should have received a copy of the covenants when you closed on your home.  A copy is available by clicking the covenants link on the left. 

 

             There have been some questions about if and when our covenants will expire.  Our covenants will not expire.  Article V. 2.  states the covenants and restrictions “shall run with and bind the land in perpetuity”.  Our covenants are intended to help protect our property values, please cooperate and abide by them. 

 

            Please remember that the covenants prohibit boats, campers, trailers, RV’s, and trash receptacles from being stored outdoors on your property.

 

            The covenants require approval of construction plans for fences, pools, patio enclosures and other external improvements.  Please refer to the covenants for more details.

 

 

Issues

 

            Speed Bumps.  At our May 8, 2006 meeting, the issue of speed bumps was discussed.  We asked Douglas County to perform a traffic study on 174th Street.   According to the Douglas County Engineer, the volume of vehicles per day is too low to warrant “traffic calming devices” at this time.

         

            Annexation.  Autumn Ridge was annexed by the City of Omaha August 22, 2011.  As of that date our S.I.D. (Sanitary Improvement District 354) no longer exists.  As you may be aware, the S.I.D. had been paying for several maintenance items around the common area entrances at 168th and P, and 172nd and Q such as lawn mowing, sprinkling, weeding, landscaping, etc.  The homeowners association will assume the cost of maintenance of these common areas, as required by the covenants.   Annexation info

 

Neighborhood Watch

 

            There have been a couple reports of some teens congregating on the school property in the summertime during the late night or early morning hours.  Douglas County Sheriff is patrolling the school area and has asked to be advised of mischievous activities.  Don’t hesitate to call [911] if you see something going on that shouldn’t be.  If it’s after midnight – do you know where your kids are?

 

            Some people hesitate to call 911 if they want to report something suspicious but it’s not really an emergency.  According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s website:  Regardless of whether you consider an incident an emergency or not, simply dial 911 to report an incident or request a cruiser”. 

 

            Remember to keep your garage doors closed, and don’t leave your keys in the car.  Call your neighbor if you see their garage door open at night.   Report suspicious activities to 911.
