Thirty Marine volunteers completed the bulk of the installation of the NEW HF Park playground last week. Thanks to those Marines and to the neighbors who donated food and drinks. Stabilization and safety inspections are still needed, but park and construction officials say the playground should be open by the end of the month.
The Lilly Mill Storm Drainage Improvement Project in the creek behind Huntingtowne Farms Elementary has begun. Expect to see lots of trucks and construction equipment. The access to the creek will be at the intersection of Lilly Mill and Tattersall.

Construction on the Lilly Mill drainage project will begin in September 2019, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services. The project is estimated to take up to two years. Brian Sikes, a project manager with the county, says that residents will maintain access to their homes, even if streets need to be blocked during construction.

A heads-up for HF residents: Mecklenburg County appraisal staff have been seen in our neighborhood examining home exteriors to gather information for next year’s property revaluation.
According to the county website, appraisers will always be driving a marked county vehicle and will NOT ask to come inside your home without an appointment.
