What's Happening in Avensong!
When a property reaches a certain age, plant material will eventually outgrows its space. No matter how often you prune, a plant will continue to increase in size year after year. Shrubs will eventually begin to impede on sidewalks, growing into the side of the house or growing into each other. Overgrown shrubs can either be removed, replaced, or hard pruned. Hard pruning, also known as rejuvenation pruning, is the removal of old overgrown, declining or dead limbs. This method will allow for new plant growth, and promote new growth of branches in their place. Proper rejuvenation pruning of these plants will promote fresh healthy shoots giving that plant a new, more manageable look. This aggressive pruning will allow more light inside the crown of plant. Light promotes interior growth (more leaves and full, healthy plant) and can prolong the life of the plants. The end result, is an open, less overgrown appearance for the community. Rejuvenation pruning is a standard horticultural procedure, that promotes new life for the plant and an updated look within the community.
Beginning the week of January 28 we will start the rejuvenation pruning process in Villages at Avensong. We will be reducing plant material (in front & sides of home outside fences) in height by approx. 45-50%. This includes all evergreen and deciduous shrubs. Any tree form material will be reduced in overall size by 35-40%The shrubs will be reduced to the appearance of only sticks. Once the weather and soil temperatures warm up (Spring), we begin to see the plants starting to recover and bud out. By mid-summer the plants will begin to leaf out.

Propping Open Secured Gates and Doors is Prohibited!
The gates and doors around the pool and tennis courts require secure card access for everyone’s safety and protection. Propping these gates and doors open leaves the neighborhood (you!) open to security concerns, damages and liability. It also causes damage to the gates and locking mechanisms. Anyone caught propping open secured gates and doors, or accessing the amenities by any means other than using an active amenity card, will be subject to loss of amenity privileges. (Smile, you’re on video camera!)
No Overnight Parking at the Clubhouse!
Any unauthorized parking at the clubhouse after the amenities are closed will result in your vehicle being towed. If you need to park at the clubhouse overnight (extra house guests, moving van, etc.) please contact the HOA to let us know. If we don’t have your vehicle make/tag info on file, your vehicle may be towed. Contact the HOA for clubhouse parking information at email@example.com.
The Neighborhood Watch
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you call 9-1-1 from your cell phone you MUST mention CITY OF MILTON or your call will be routed to Forsyth County!
Currently we are not holding regularly scheduled Neighborhood Watch meetings. As the Milton Police Department provides us with crime watch updates, we will share them on the "Crime Watch" page of this website.
Our community has been approved by City of Milton for a traffic study to be conducted in our neighborhood. As we receive details about the study and its impact on us, we will share them. The results of that study will help us determine what traffic calming aids we may be able to use to help ensure the safety of our neighborhood. If you would like more information on traffic calming, please visit City of Milton Traffic Calming website
*Basic home safety tips from the Neighborhood Watch:
- If you park outside of your garage, make sure nothing "tempting" is visible. Bring all valuables into your home and remember to wipe "prints" left by device holders off windows.
- Lock the door from your garage into your home. If someone breaks into your garage, the next step is to try the door to the house!
- Take your car key fob to bed with you. You can use the "alarm" function to set off your car alarm if there is a problem.
- Consider converting your outdoor floodlights to "motion-sensor" lights. Lights turning on are a big deterrent to thieves.
- When throwing away cartons from high-end items (TVs, computers, etc.) break down the boxes on trash day and put them in the trash/recycle cans. Don't advertise your valuables to thieves!
- As always, if you need help, call 9-1-1. Remember, if you call from your cell phone you need to say "City of Milton"!
Please be aware that according to the City of Milton, it is illegal to park in the following places – you can be ticketed and towed!!
- No Parking in front of a fire hydrant.
- No Parking in front of/blocking driveways that are not yours.
- No Parking within 50’ (fifty feet) of a street corner with a stop sign.
If you see any of these parking violations, please call the Milton Police.
