Cars on Berkley have been broken into and the villains are stealing garage door openers. In some cases, this will allow them entry into your house if your door is unlocked. Guard your garage door opener!

At least one POA member has received a scam call about Social Security. So please remember:
“The Social Security Administration uses emails, text messages, and social media to provide information on our programs and services. We will not, however, request personal or financial information through these methods. Sometimes, we send emails with information that is particular to your needs, usually after a discussion with you in person or over the phone. When Social Security makes phone contact, it is often to confirm the legitimacy of claims.
It is important to beware of scammers pretending to be from Social Security. Reports about fraudulent phone calls from people claiming to be from Social Security continue to increase, and recent reports have indicated unknown callers are using increasingly threatening language in these calls. If you receive a suspicious call from someone alleging to be from Social Security, hang up, and then report details of the call to the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) at https://oig.ssa.gov/.” — From the Social Security website

The Median Improvement Committee makes the following request of all CDPOA members… to keep you from clogging our stormwater drains and flooding your yard! Residents may not rake or blow leaves from their yards or street into a median. All leaves and other materials must be picked up or directed elsewhere. Our medians are an integral part of the Downs’ stormwater management system, and it is a violation of state and federal laws to deposit anything other than stormwater into the system. These materials result in clogging of storm drains, causing the drains to overflow during significant rains and flood our properties. So, take a moment and take note. And if you hire an outside contractor to handle your yard, please inform them of this regulation. This is not a Downs regulation. This is codified in state and federal regulations. Thanks!
If you do not have or know of a handyman or contractor for your home project(s), your POA Board suggests contacting our local hardware, paint, or home improvement stores. Several of them maintain lists of people who are qualified and willing to work. You can also join Nextdoor Clemson at www.nextdoor.com and ask your neighbors throughout Clemson for their recommendations.
