NEWS:
1. WATER DISRUPTION – from 7pm Tues 13/11 to 7am Weds 14/11.
Due to installation of a pressure release valve on the ‘trunk’ water line serving Blanchardstown/Castleknock – water may not be available in our area during the above TWELVE hours. Detailed list of sites available on Council’s website on Monday 12th November. Visit www.fingalcoco.ie -click on WATER link.
2. Tennis Courts. New nets have been installed by the Council. Open to All Residents. Carpenterstown Tennis Club restarts lessons FOR ADULTS only in February 2013. To register for lessons, get more information, email carpenterstowntc@gmail.com.
3. BURGLARIES –These are on the increase in the 3 estates. Put bikes in shed or house at night/when you are away. Lock cars/do not leave personal items in cars. Do not leave purses/keys within site of windows. Blanchardstown Gardai encourage everyone to use their house alarms if they have one. QUERY FOR LOCAL GARDAI?!
Blanchardstown Community Gards hold a Clinic weekly at Castleknock Community Centre, Wednesdays from 7pm to 8pm. Their direct phone is 01-666-7020.
4. Quality Bus Corridor. The Residents Association is pursuing Fingal County Council regarding ‘ghost lines’ which were to be installed Maple Roundabout (similar to those supplied at Carpenter roundabout at Castleknock Community College/Carpenterstown Pub). This is to control traffic speed at this location. We will keep you updated on this.
5. Tree Obstructing Traffic at Maple Drive. We are in communication with the Council to cut back the tree located directly at the back of the granite estate sign at Maple Drive. This is obstructing the view of drivers leaving Maple Drive looking up Carpenterstown Avenue to their RIGHT. It is also preventing motorists coming to Maple roundabout from seeing motorists on Maple Drive to their LEFT. We hope to have this resolved shortly.
SUGGESTED -SPEED BUMPS ON CARPENTERSTOWN AVENUE -
Between LAVERNA ROUNDABOUT and MAPLE ROUNDABOUT?
Query?
Do you have a view on the above? Recently, a car drove OVER Maple roundabout and crashed just before 10am Sunday Services ended at St. Thomais the Apostle Church. Motorists not familiar with this area have told residents that they do not see Maple roundabout ahead until they are almost on it. A number of residents have complained that traffic speeds too fast from Laverna to Maple. The Council has advised there is not a problem at this section. We want to hear from YOU-
What is your opinion? Please email us at:-
carpenterstownparkresidents@gmail.com.
Your opinion will be considered at our next Meeting so let us know.

NEXT MEETING – MONDAY 3rd December 2012
8.00pm

Clean-up Day

The Carpenterstown Park residents started gathering at Tennis court greens at around 10:30am. Resource materials like gloves, bags, litter pickers e.t.c. were provided by the Carpenterstown park Residents association. Within an hours time lot of kids came out along with their parents to help in this cause. It generated quite an excitement among them as everyone was keen to bring in a bigger bag full of litter. Many residents got to know each other through this healthy exercise. Some residents got their shovels out and started uprooting the weeds alongside the Sycamore avenue. Within two hours loads of litter bags filled and piled up under the Carpenterstown park Residents association banner. Later on, in liaison with Fingal County Council, litter bags were collected by their staff. Carpenterstown park Residents association had also some refreshments and goodies for the kids in the shape of chocolates, sweets, chips, juices, fizzy drinks and biscuits.

We plan to have two clean-up Saturdays, in May and late September.  Also, we hope to enter the Tidy Districts competition run by
Fingal CoCo. We won awards on the two occasions we competed.   As well, we will continue to have a friendly relationship with the local Fingal staff, who have always been attentive and helpful to our efforts.   Also, we hope to get acquainted with the Fingal County Development Plan which is being finalised.
