Capital Improvements: The Board has completed improvements to the front entrance landscaping. The Board has also approved installation of street lighting in several areas throughout the subdivision. This lighting will provide additional safety for students at bus stops. Please click here to see a map for expected locations.
Snow Removal: Reminder that, per city ordinance, each resident needs to clear snow from sidewalks within 24 hours of the end of a snowfall. Snow may not be shoveled or blown onto the roadways. Also, when the city declares a snow emergency, cars must be removed from the street.
Block Party 2019: The Block Party was a great success. Thanks to all residents who attended and had a great time. Special thanks to the Block Party Planning Committee who planned all details.
Annual Meeting: The 2019 Cumberland Woods HOA meeting was held Thursday, May 23rd, 2019. Thanks to those who attended. Meeting minutes are available here. Updated financial information has also been posted.
Road Construction: No road repair is expected to take place in the neighborhood in 2019. There are several projects around and near the city that could impact your commute. These include reconstruction of Livernois between Avon and Walton, and reconstruction of Auburn between Dequindre and Culberson. Please see the city website for a map of all construction projects.
Construction Approval: Per our bylaws, any significant changes to the exterior of your home must be approved by the Board. Plans should be submitted in person to a Board member or can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Examples include decks, exterior buildings, awning installation, solar panels, etc. Failure to acquire advance approval could result in removal of the item at cost to the homeowner.
Pet Reminders: Per city ordinance, dogs must be licensed. Any dog must be on a leash in any public area. Pet owners have the responsibility to understand and comply with all state and local laws regarding leash requirements. While the board does not have the authority to enforce leash requirements, residents who witness dogs not on leashes in public areas are asked to immediately contact the Oakland County Sherriff Department and/or Animal Control, who can and will enforce these laws. Please understand that any dog that bites a person or another dog is subject to quarantine and possibly euthanasia. Compliance to these laws can avoid many different potential tragedies! As a courtesy, residents are also asked that dogs are not left unattended in front yards even with the presence of an electric fence. Finally, each resident is responsible for cleaning up their pets waste. Residents who do not clean up after their pets are subject to fines.

Bus Stop Safety: Please exercise caution around bus stops. If lights are blinking on a bus, you must stop and wait until the driver turns off the lights. Also, if you are waiting in your cars to pick up or drop off your child, you must allow space for traffic to pass through, and you must keep sight lines open. Particular caution should be noted in this regard near the subdivision entrance
Yard Signs: Since there were some recent questions about signage, we are providing a reminder of the policy for yard signs. Per city law, one real estate sign may be placed in front of a home that is for sale or rent. Per Supreme Court rulings, during election cycles, political signs may be placed which endorse a particular candidate or issue, but city law states these must be removed no later than 24 hours following the election. These are the only signs allowed. All other signs are prohibited as per the subdivision by-laws.
Annual dues of $175 are be due by June 1st.
Mailbox Repair Program: Please contact the board if your mailbox is in need of repair or replacement.
Neighborhood Watch: If you see any suspicious activity, please contact the Oakland County Sheriff Department!
