Cul-de-Sac Maintenance and Other Repairs
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Township's program to provide basic maintenance to all the 1,400 small cup-de-sacs will start next week. Maintenance will be done once a year.  Grass will be mowed within 42 inches of the curbs with fallen limbs and debris removed.  Those cul-de-sacs which are already well maintained will be left alone.

The median on Grogan's Mill, torn up when the water pipe line was installed by the SJRA,  will be repaired starting the near future.

The pathway under Grogan's Mill Road, which was closed for installation of the water pipeline is having the ownership transferred from The Woodlands Development Company to the Township.  Discussions between the parties continue.  It is not certain when the path will reopen.
