Living in a subdivision at the city limits with ponds, common areas, and surrounding woods requires a certain tolerance for nature. Current and previous boards have tried different tactics to deter the geese from making our subdivision a rest or nesting area during migrations. In 2021, the board tried growing the grasses around the ponds. This resulted in many negative comments from neighbors and visitors to the neighborhood and did not provide the intended results. Ponds 2 & 3 did not have enough vegetation to deter any geese, while Pond 1 had grass and weeds making it look unsightly and unkempt. It was later decided to abandon this tactic.
