I wanted to make the residents of Surrey Place aware of two interesting websites that feature local news and information. The first is the Chamblee Post, which covers both the City of Chamblee and DeKalb County. The second is the City of Chamblee Police Department Facebook page. These are 2 great places that should be added to your “Favorites” to keep up with what’s happening in our local community.
It’s that time of year again when we collect for the Surrey Place Homeowner’s Association. Dues are only $20 a year, which goes to the cost of printing the quarterly newsletter, website domain fee, the new resident welcome packs and gifts, social events and neighborhood improvements.
This year, the HOA has made it easier to pay your dues by setting up a PayPal account! You can use the link below or in the “About Us” section. However, we still want offer the option to pay by check so please use the addressed envelope attached to the latest newsletter and send it to the Surrey Place president, Matt Sitter. Please make your checks out to the Surrey Place HOA. Thank you for your support!
We have had 2 reports of a bobcat in the neighborhood, specifically along Chamblee-Tucker. One resident saw it at night in his back yard and a few days later another resident saw it in his carport (eating something) around 6:30am. The Georgia Department of Natural Resources say that a bobcats average size is 14-28 lbs, and usually lives in mixed forest and agricultural areas. However, they can live in a wide variety of areas because of a broad prey base (mice, rats, rabbits, birds, reptiles, and feral cats). A Wildlife Resource representative said that bobcats are afraid of people and a simple clap or a thrown stick or rock should send them running. For more information, here is a link to Nuisance Wildlife: Prevention & Management from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources

Here are a few pictures to show the progress of the new Quik Trip…according to the project manager, the development is a several weeks behind schedule due to the abundance of rain this spring. They hope to have a grand opening in September or possibly early October.
The DeKalb County Extension Office is a department that is a cooperation between the University of Georgia and the US Department of Agriculture. It seeks to inform and educate the citizens about the interaction of horticulture, the environment and our communities. Not only do they offer free advice by their Master Gardeners (404-298-4080), but they sponsor several workshops during the year at a reasonable fee ($10). These workshops are held at the DeKalb Extension main office located at Memorial Drive and I-285. Please visit this link to check out the 2013 Workshop Schedule.
