Charter Oak Place (September 2020) by Steve Ferree

Charter Oak Place is a Shadow Brook cul-de-sac of 13 homes that, along with some neighbors nearby on Bret Harte Drive are a Neighborhood Watch area.  Residents of Charter Oak Place range from some families that have only recently moved in to several who are original owners.  In “normal” years the community holds get-togethers approximately once a quarter to celebrate our neighborhood.  We all know each other on the block and watch out for each other, watching their homes when someone is gone, helping bring in trash cans and more.

Blue Mist Place (October 2020) by Tami Sell

Blue Mist Place is the only cul-de-sac off Heathfield Drive. This block has 9 homes. Its Neighborhood Watch area extends out onto 4 adjoining homes on Heathfield, and includes 2 original homeowners. Blue Mist Place has hosted a number of block parties in recent years. When a family is away on vacation, Blue Mist residents (Blue Misters) help watch over each other’s homes, bring in garbage cans and pick up newspapers or packages. They all have each other’s phone numbers to communicate if needed. Blue Misters feel grateful to live in a nice, safe, family-friendly community like Shadow Brook!
