The petition to allow a Dollar Tree in Millersville FAILED!!! The owner of the Walgreens building requested a variance to rent the store to Dollar Tree. Millersville, along with Windridge residents, opposed converting the vacant Walgreens into a Dollar Tree. We took our case to a public hearing before the Indianapolis Metropolitan Development Commission on March 7th and we WON!!! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! …to our presenters, …to all who wrote letters to the Commission …to all who signed our petitions and …to all who came to the hearing!
As spring approaches please avoid parking or driving on the grass.
Residents and guests are encouraged to use their driveway for parking.
When parking on the street is necessary, please keep all four tires on the pavement.
The Landscape Committee is willing to provide owners with guidance. Please submit a Landscape Request to request help. Also remember that a Landscape Request must be submitted and approved prior to any gardening in common areas in Windridge.
From a Dr. Dirt Indy Star column:
Dear Dr. Dirt: Our lawn has two large sugar maple trees. There is NO grass around these trees. We love the trees, but would like a little grass to go with them.
Dear Reader: For the most part, grass and trees are NOT compatible. Grass needs LOTS of SUNLIGHT and PLENTY of SOIL MOISTURE. Trees block the sun and their roots draw the moisture, killing the grass. You may shred the maple leaves and cover the area under the trees with them. Perhaps some wild flowers will become established in the leaf mulch? You can move out five or six feet from the trees and front them with some low growing shrubs with horizontal branching.
Otherwise, enjoy your trees just do not expect lush green grass underneath them.
