Our Neighborhood

Please remember that it is our responsibility to look after our neighborhoods. When you are out walking please pick up after your dog. If you happen to see trash please pick it up and throw it away. It takes a community to keep our neighborhood looking good.


Sign Posting on Metro District Property

Please remember that sign posting, either by planting in the ground on District property or posting on District fences, is strictly prohibited without prior written consent of the Board of Directors. It should be noted that the District spent thousands of taxpayer dollars in the spring of 2007 repairing the sprinkler system along the Smoky Hill Road corridor. A lot of this damage was caused by signage that was hammered into the ground. Furthermore, signs with wire bases, if not removed, can separate from the wires which can get tangled in and damage our mowing equipment. Parts of signs can become lethal projectiles if they are not seen by our mowing crew and are run over.

If a sign is determined to have damaged any part of the District's sprinkler system or mowing equipment, or can be determined to have caused injury, the persons responsible for posting such signage can be held legally liable. The District Board of Directors and the maintenance crew ask that you consider the well-being of all those who may possibly be affected and refrain from posting signs on District Property.
