Letters: Please don’t trespass

Homeowners annoyed at use of their yard for short cut

Dear Tomininy Road residents,

This is an open letter to you to ask you to stop trespassing on my property.  You cut across the construction site across the road and onto my property to use my driveway to short cut onto Maple avenue on a daily basis.

This has to stop.  You are trespassing on private property.

You would think you could read the huge “DO NOT TRESSPASS, PRIVATE PROPERTY” sign on the end of my driveway, either you can’t read, or you don’t care.

We have contacted the police, and they say if we can identify you we can prosecute you.  We do not want to start photographing you, but we will if this continues.

We have children and pets, and do not want strangers on our property.  You would not want that to happen to your property, so don’t do it to ours.

It is not only teenagers, but full grown adults with babies in strollers, cyclists, Buffy’s pub patrons, and dog walkers who disrespect our property by continuing to use ours as a shortcut to town.

Please show some respect for your neighbors within your community, stay off our property.

Thank you, in advance.

Homeowners of 1912 Maple Ave.
