Update on Recent Break-ins

02/22/2014: Unfortunately, there have been 2 incidents in the last couple of days. An actual break-in (yesterday) and an attempted break-in (today) happened in the 7200 block of Countrywood Ln. An e-mail was sent to CGNA members with the details.  We need to remain vigilant about our safety and security. Don't hesitate to call 911 if you see or notice something unusual or you have been a victim of a crime. 

Don't be a Victim!

Most of the thefts in our neighborhood are due to carelessness. Unfortunately, doors are left unlocked, garage doors are left open and valuables are left in plain sight in vehicles.

We have had cars stolen, bikes (and other items) taken from garages, valuables stolen out of cars and the list goes on and on.

Please take the time to secure your house, cars and valuables. Good lighting also makes a difference. Lets work together to keep our neighborhood safe and prevent Country Grove from being an attractive place for thieves! If you notice something that doesn't look right, please don't hesitate to call the Police.

Connecting on Facebook is a great way to stay informed!

Slow Down!

Please remember to obey the posted speed limits in our neighborhood.

Don't Forget to Close Your Garage Doors & Lock Your House!

Recently, there have been several reports of items being stolen out of garages. In all cases, the garage door was open at the time of the theft. Remember to close your garage doors and lock your service door.

Although it is common for thefts to happen over night, there has been an increase of thefts during the day. Please advise your neighbors to lock their garage, car doors and house doors.

This summer, a number of people had bikes or scooters stolen from their garages, only to have them dumped in other people's yards.

While still one of the safest in the city, there has been an increase in property crimes in our neighborhood. Please remember to park your cars in the garage and close the garage door. If you must park outside, make sure to bring any valuables inside and lock your vehicles. 

We need to be aware of what is happening in our neighborhood. If you see something suspicious or sense that a situation does not feel right, please do not hesitate to call the Police and report your findings.

Important Information

Architectural Review Committee

Did you know that Country Grove has an Architectural Review Committee? Do NOT erect a fence without prior approval. All fences MUST be approved by the Architectural Committee.

Homeowners wishing to make any modifications which are contrary to the neighborhood covenants must submit plans for review by the committee.
Note: Small satellite dishes do not need approval.

For more information, Click Here to visit the Achitectural Committee page.

Pet Courtesy Appreciated

Please be considerate when walking your pets within our neighborhood and on common areas. Practice responsible pet ownership and clean up any messes your precious pooch may leave behind. A simple action like this shows respect for the community, and gives a positive impression of pet owners and pets. It shows goodwill, and is a good practice. It's also the law!

Madison has a leash law. It is unlawful to allow pets of any type (including cats) to run at large in the City of Madison. Animals found at large are considered to be so with the permission of their owner. Violators can be fined up to $500 dollars.
