Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Because of the speeding and break-in concerns voiced by several residents coupled with the increased risk of crime during the holiday season, we have engaged the services of special duty officers. The additional police presence will be noticed in 3-hour a day shifts, 2 days a week, between now and January 2 at a cost of $152 per shift. Due to the weather, there won’t be much in the way of speed control over the next 2 weeks. The officers will concentrate on speed control during the month of March. They will ticket anyone who is traveling at a speed of 35 mph or higher. A representative of the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office will attend our March meeting to discuss the effectiveness of the options to control speeding and crime that are available to us and to answer questions.
Before the trustees make a commitment beyond March, we would like the input of a majority of residents. When the dues notice is mailed in January, a survey form will be included to choose whether the majority of residents want the additional police presence:
- only during the Christmas holidays and sporadically during the year up to what the current budget can accommodate.
- on a more permanent basis, which may require a dues increase in 2018.
- or do not want the special duty police presence.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Gloria A. Gaskey

12/15:GEMINI EXTENSION PROJECT UPDATE
Worthington Road to Open in New Alignment Dec. 19. UPDATED OPENING DATE Worthington Road is expected to open in its new alignment between Polaris Parkway and Gemini on Monday, December 19. Due to a change to the traffic signals during the “flash phase,” the opening of Worthington Road has been postponed to December 19. When it opens Monday:
- Northbound Worthington Road will have two right turn lanes and a left turn lane at Gemini.
- Southbound Worthington Road at Polaris: two left turn lanes, a thru lane and a right/thru lane.
- The southbound designated right turn lane on Worthington Road will remain closed until May for traffic signal work at the Worthington/Polaris intersection.
The second left turn lane on northbound Orion Place at Gemini is expected to open in January. We are waiting for the traffic signal cabinet to arrive. Without the new signal, it’s not safe to open the lane.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN SPRING
Final paving and permanent striping on Worthington Road and on the east end of Gemini
