DO NOT BLOCK THE SIDEWALKS! Tickets are being issued by Code Enforcement & Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
Please slow down & pay attention to all the kids that will be walking & riding their bikes to school. If you are in a hurry to get to work please leave 5 minutes earlier. Our neighborhood children are too important to put in harm’s way. Also, DO NOT park your cars across the sidewalk. We don’t want the kids to have to go around your car, boat, etc. & in to the street to get past your house. If you are blocking the sidewalk both code enforcement & the sheriff’s department will be called to enforce the law. The safety of our children is of the utmost importance.
