Happy Earth Day Craneridge! We’re fortunate to have a unique neighborhood that is closely integrated with its surrounding woodlands. A reminder of a couple upcoming events to help us take pride and maintain our surroundings:
Saturday 4/23 1p-3p @ the pool shelter: Free trees and shrubs! First come first serve for free tree and shrub saplings to plant on your property and around Craneridge. Help us diversify our forest and improve our woodlands.
Saturday 4/30 9:30a @ the pool shelter: Spring Work Day. We’ll be cleaning, trimming, gardening, doing minor repairs. There is plenty of work to go around. We work for a couple hours and have lunch afterwards. Food and beverages provided. If you’d like to bring a dish to pass it is appreciated but not required. Bring the whole family.
It’s that time of year again where we are looking for volunteers to run for the Craneridge Board of Directors. It can take as little as a couple hours a month, and in exchange you are able to represent your neighborhood and help drive the future of Craneridge.
We want a diverse Board to represent everyone in the community. It doesn’t matter if you have lived here for 49 years or just moved in last week, everyone has an equal vote in shaping the neighborhood.
If you have served on the Board before, please consider running again.
If you have never served on the Board but are curious, please reach out to any current Board member with questions. Or you can send an email to our general mailbox and someone will get back to you: email@example.com
If you are interested in running, please contact the Nominations Committee chairman Dave Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Craneridge Page on Nextdoor.com
Craneridge is now using a private online network called Nextdoor. Nextdoor is a free and private social network just for Craneridge residents. On Nextdoor, we can share crime and safety concerns, events, recommendations, items for sale/free, ideas how to make our neighborhood better, etc. There is also a feature that allows alerts to go out via email or text message (if you choose) in the event of emergencies.

Nextdoor is not going to replace the website. It is intended to compliment the site, as well as our Facebook page, as a place where residents can communicate privately.

Plowing and Street Parking
The Association received a message from the Town Highway Supervisor asking us to remind residents of laws regarding plowing and parking in the winter. Recently, snow has been pushed all over the roads by plow contractors which is against numerous laws in the New York State Vehicle & Traffic Laws Section 1219, Town Highway Law Section 214, and Highway Law Section 319. This creates a driving hazard and extra work for the highway plows.
Also as a reminder, there is no overnight street parking in the winter.
Thanks for your cooperation in helping the Town take care of our neighborhood.
