Neighbors in South Seminole Heights! Please let us know if you have any video or saw anything related to this! Location is Highland and South Ave. Happened in the afternoon on 2/16. This is a repost from neighbors:
Hi neighbors, we live on Highland and our car, in our driveway while we were gone for an hours yesterday, was hit by a careless driver--the bumper is almost completely torn off and the car was hit with enough force to displace it a few feet. They drove off and just one neighbor thinks they saw a white Acura. We moved to the neighborhood almost exactly a year ago and love almost everything about it, but the property damage by cars is unacceptable. So dangerous and expensive. We filed a police report but there's really nothing else to do about it.
Just spreading awareness (I guess contact us if you have any information) because something really needs to change. And stay safe. ... See MoreSee Less

You may have noticed one of our larger trees on the south end of Rivercrest Park has been removed. Our association reported the tree after a large limb fell from it. Upon review by the city, the tree was noted as having Ganoderma, a white rot fungi that compromises the load bearing strength of the tree. Consequentially, the tree has been removed by the city to assure public safety.
It is important to notate that the SSHCA is actively working with Parks and Rec Urban and Forestry Manager to develop a canopy sustainability plan for Rivercrest Park. We have seen at least three trees removed due to disease, age, or damage in the last 2 years. This plan will develop a short, mid, and long term replacement plan for our tree canopy in the park to preserve what has been recognized as some of the oldest and most treasured tree specimens in the neighborhood. We should have more details in that and a plan in place by our April meeting. ... See MoreSee Less
