Come join your neighbors for National Night Out 2014!
National Night Out Against Crime is an annual event designed to strengthen our community by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and with our local law enforcement partners. The event builds support and participation in local anti-crime programs, and most importantly, sends a message that our neighborhood is organized and fighting back. This is also a perfect opportunity to get to know your neighbors even better. The Maple Ridge BOD hopes to see all of you there!

Work at the Parks
We are upgrading our parks! You may have noticed that our parks can get muddy to the point of being difficult to use. To combat the mud, we are installing additional drainage under the soil as well as adding soil that will drain better. The goal is to have parks that are more useful for more of the year, and park surfaces that sustain less damage from usage in muddy periods.
To get there, you should see the new topsoil delivered soon, possibly as soon as Thursday May 14. After that, there will be work done and areas closed. You should see tape or flags marking areas that are closed. Please keep everyone off the closed areas - especially children and pets.
When we have information about how long areas will be closed we will post information here.
June Board Meeting
The June board meeting will be at the usual date, time, and place. That is, it will be the first Tuesday (June 3) at 7pm at the fire station at the intersection of Hwy 169 and SE 231st St.
Speed Study update/fact sheet
Maple Woods Homeowners:
As some of you may know, several homeowners and the board of directors have been working with the City of Maple Valley to address the ongoing speeding problem we have in our neighborhood. After three speed studies have shown that we have a significant speed problem, it’s time to act to protect the safety of the children of our neighborhood. The city has chosen to poll the residents of both Maple Woods and Maple Ridge Highlands to determine homeowner support for the proposed traffic calming measures on Maple Ridge Drive and Maple Ridge Way.
Please read the Speed Study Fact Sheet from the City of Maple Valley. Over the next few weeks, please expect a knock at your door to collect a signature of either approval or disapproval of the proposed traffic calming measures. It is very important that we get as many homeowners as possible to weigh in on the matter.
