Davis Islands Newsletter March 2019

THE DAVIS ISLANDS NEWSLETTER

Welcome to the March Islands View newsletter. This month we have a new business in the village as well as another coming online in the near future!  I encourage you also to take a look at the crime activity for February as well as the various zoning and design exceptions that occur monthly.

As always, have a great month and we will see you around the Islands!

ISLANDS NEWS

New Italian Market Opens on DI

This past month you probably have noticed the opening of a new shop in the DI Village.  Uncle Giuseppe’s has opened in the former Laundry Mat building.

This market is just getting started with fresh brick-fire oven pizzas, fresh salads, meats, basic Italian groceries and more.  Swing by today for some lunch or to pick up something special for your next dinner party.

March Home Care Tips

You can keep your home in top shape with simple tasks throughout the year. This month, be sure to:

  • Take a look at your lawn mower and give it a quick tune up. You’ll be needing it soon enough!
  • Examine the exterior foundation grading/slope and ensure water moves away from your home. If water is collecting near the house, you’ll want to get things fixed right away.
  • Inspect your roof’s surface, flashing, eaves, and soffits; after winter weather, the roof could use a little attention.
  • Drain approximately 2 gallons from your water heater to eliminate sediment.
  • Examine, repair and replace caulk and grout around your tubs and showers.
  • Service your kitchen disposal by grinding several cups of ice cubes.
  • Check your window and door screens in anticipation of warmer weather.
  • Vacuum your bathroom vent covers.
