Dear Arbor Station Homeowners
Happy New Year to ALL
We would like to thank all the homeowners who were able to attend our community meeting that was held on December 16,2017 at 11am…I hope many of you found this meeting to be informative and beneficial. We encourage every homeowner to attend our community meetings when possible as these meeting are designed to give you the homeowner the opportunity to address your board regarding suggestions and concerns you may have about our community. The Douglasville police department was our special guest for this years community meeting and they shared some valuable and helpful safety tips that we all need to be aware of. The main theme behind their message is that ” If you see something, say something”- call 911 We will continue to partner with our local police department in an effort to continue to keep Arbor Station a beautiful and safe place to live. Our next community meeting is scheduled for sometime in May’2018 and we will post the exact date on our website as well as on our marquee outside the clubhouse.
A special thanks is extended to all the Board Members and Volunteers who dedicate their time and volunteerism to help maintain our communities common areas in addition to the many untold things they do that makes our community what it is.

The police department will be sharing recent incidents reports about our community along with a power point presentation in an effort to make homeowners aware of any crime activity taking place within the Arbor Station subdivision. They will be sharing safety tips, advice on being vigilant with if you see something, say something, being aware of your surroundings and many other helpful tips to keep us all safe during this holiday season.

Thanks to all those who were able to join us for our annual pool party that was held on Saturday August 26,2017…..we had an enjoyable time and we wish that more homeowners could have attended this delightful event. We hope you enjoyed the Movie under the stars by the pool events that were held this summer in addition to the live DJ spinning our favorite tunes for kids and adults alike..the feedback we got is that it was great for all to enjoy. As we near the close of our pool season we want to thank all the residents of Arbor Station HOS for making this another successful and safe pool season. We look forward to seeing many more of you for our next community meeting which will take place in the fall of 2017…look for the upcoming announcement. we encourage everyone to attend these meetings when your schedule allows as your input and concerns are always welcomed.
As we continue to strive to make Arbor Station a Beautiful and Safe place to live we ask that you continue to help us along with the Douglas County Police Department in our ” IF YOU SEE SOMEHTING SAY SOMETHING ” campaign which is an ongoing theme throughout the year to encourage us as being neighbors to speak up when we see something that doesn’t look or appear to be right. Normally your gut instincts is a key indicator that maybe you need to “Say Something”…the Douglasville Police Department did canvass our neighborhood during the first week of May 2017 in an effort to re-engage our local law enforcement officials with the communities in which they serve, despite this proactive effort their have been 2 recent incidents which required the attention of law enforcement where gun activity was involved. Please know it takes a combined effort on the part of all of us as residents to be vigilant in our efforts to report suspicious activity in our neighborhoods…a simple call to 911 can make a difference in our lives as well as the lives of others. Our Police department will continue to monitor things within our community, however they can use your help!! …we will be inviting the Douglasville Police Department back to one of our annual community meetings later in the year to discuss Safety Tips and being aware of what’s going on within our community…..Please keep being vigilant and if you SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!! – call 911 when in doubt as Safety is our number one concern!
