Fence Project Update
The perimeter fence construction is complete.  Staining of the West fence will continue while the weather allows.  The North and South fences will be stained this year, weather permitting; but staining may be postponed until Spring 2016 to ensure optimal protection.

Neighborhood Watch
November 14, 2015: Notice
A neighbor has turned in a set of keys to the NW.  If you know of someone who lost their keys or they are yours, please email HamptonsNW@Vincams.com or call Michael at 312-375-0497.
 November 9, 2015: Update
If you've walked around the community at night you'll have noticed a greater number of front coach lights and entry door lights turned on.  Our caring community has stepped up in lighting our neighborhood.  Patio lights are also extremely helpful as there are no street lights behind our buildings.  "Lights on for Safety" will continue to be essential for our safety for the next few weeks as fence construction is completed.
Law enforcement agencies in our area and across the country agree that well-lighted areas (residential as well as commercial) are less likely to be targeted by criminals. Lighting is one of the simplest and least expensive crime deterrents available to community residents. Turn your lights on for safety - coach lights, entry door lights and patio lights - from dusk until dawn.
Neighborhood Watch (NW) and the Homeowners Association will keep updated information available via web posts and email.  While the NW includes e-mail notifications to just over 1/3 of our community, 2/3 do not receive updates in this format.  Please share the effort of "lights on" with your neighbors and remind them to report suspicious activity to the appropriate authority.  NW is a community information sharing and community safety effort of all of us.
