2017 beautification project at Siegen Lane entrance 

The beautification project for the Siegen/N. Oak Hills entrance has been completed in record time!  We have 8 beautiful, large Crape Myrtle trees planted on the right side of N. Oak Hills Pkwy as you exit the neighborhood.  The work listed below was all completed by Green Up, who maintains the landscaping for the entrances into our neighborhood & mows the grass.  GREAT JOB GREEN UP!


A new beautification project, headed up by Beau Wolf, for the Siegen/N. Oak Hills entrance passed at the June board meeting by a vote of 9–0.  Green Up was the low bidder for each scope of the project.  The project is underway - crews were working at the site on June 26th.  Phase 1 of the project includes:

1. Installation of (4) four zones of irrigation on the exit side of the drive (opposite side of the

Oak Hills Park sign). Irrigation will cover from the curb of the road to the landscaping

approximately 20 feet from the road.

2. Installation of a new irrigation time clock to operate the new four zone irrigation system. The time clock will be battery powered due to power not being available on the exit side of the road.

3. Installation of (8) eight new 10-12 foot Crape Myrtle trees to border the exit side of the road as

phase 1 of the landscape Master Plan. The Crape Myrtles will be a mixture of Pink Valoure

(dark/bright pink) and Tuscarora (light pink).

4. Installation of top soil/garden soil around the base of each tree and associated pine straw around each base.  

Phase 2 of this beautification project will be continued in 2018.

Repairs completed on the Oak Hills III, Perkins Rd. sign

Special thanks to Brian Hanchey and Beau Wolf and many others who worked on getting our sign back in record time!  The repairs were done almost immediately after a traffic mishap damaged one entire side of it at the end of April.  It was completely restored to its original form by the end of May!

Coyote and Fox sightings

A warning from Peggy D. Coates, executive director at Hilltop Arboretum:  Peggy just sent an email warning to several nearby neighborhoods that coyote's have been spotted roaming through Hilltop and into Iberville Terrace and Oak Hills neighborhoods. She warns everyone to get the word out and be vigilant about making sure pets and pet food are not left out at night! Natalie Diez reported on Nextdoor that a coyote was seen on Verdun 2 days ago. It has also been reported that foxes have been seen in Oak Hills Place around the lake area.
