Review of Playground Proposals and Community Input

Note: we will be having a public meeting on Saturday, 03/24 from 3-4 pm at the Original Pancake House to do a final review of playground proposals and take input prior to the board vote on 03/26.  The board mtgs are chock full of agenda items and would never allow us ample time for a robust playground discussion.  Thus we are having the stand alone session on 03/24.

2012 Scofield Farms Neighborhood Wide Garage Sale

Greetings Scofield!

In collaboration with the The Ridge at Scofield Farms neighborhood wide  garage sale, the Scofield Farms neighborhood wide garage sale will be held Saturday, March 24th starting at 7AM located at your home (driveway, yard). It will NOT be held at a central location.  Be ready for early-birds!!!

Advertising in the Statesman will be paid by the HOA. We will be advertising in the actual newspaper that gets delivered to doorsteps each morning AND online at Advertisements on Craigslist, eBay classifieds and  (a map-based website) are also being pursued.
Our goal is to help each customer locate each garage sale easily and quickly.

Jenny  will post signs along Metric &  at the entrances. To get as much customer traffic as possible, the Ridge Social Committee is considering posting signs at Howard Lane & Scofield Ridge Parkway, Metric & Parmer AND at the Mopac frontage road and Scofield Ridge Parkway.

Please email Jenny Walker at  and put “garage sale” in the subject line. Provide Jenny with your name and address by March 17th if you would like to participate in the neighborhood wide garage sale. (please do not use yahoo email as I don’t check it:)

Happy Selling!
Jenny Walker

Scofield ROA Playground Re-build Input Mtg

Hello neighbors,
Shelley Karn, ROA president, has asked me and fellow board member Paul Maine to take the lead in getting input from interested individuals on issues and priorities related to the playground re-build process.
So the next step is to have a face to face input session with interested parties. Based on that session and electronic input, the board will hopefully have adequate data to assist us as we project a direction. Accordingly we are asking all individuals interested in providing ideas and input on the playground renovation project to participate in the following meeting:
