Yard Debris Reminder
Please remember to place yard debris for pick up by the City in your yard at the curb, not in the street or in an island or common area. Yard debris in the street, especially limbs, poses a risk for both drivers and pedestrians.
In addition, please be neighborly and pick up any loose debris remaining after the City pick up. Also, please do not leave debris in the parks, islands or greenspaces.
For special trash pick-up, call 888-2208. There is no charge for your first special trash pick-up.
Nuisance Animals in St. Charles
There are always sightings of coyotes in February and March, which is their mating season. One of the main deterrants is as simple as removing their food source. Please make sure you don't leave dog or cat food outside. If you walk your dog(s) in the early evening (dusk), consider carrying an air horn as coyotes don't like loud noises. In the event you are confronted by a coyote, do not turn and run away as this behavior could cause them to attack. For more information on coyote behavior, click here or here for a link to Arkansas Game and Fish Commission site.
We have had a beaver problem at the lake. Beavers have chewed several trees. Here is a link for more information on their behavior.

Responsible Pet Ownership
Please make sure your dog is wearing his collar with ID when you are walking it. Proper ID will help get your dog back to you as soon as possible if it happens to slip away. Post your lost (or found) dog on NextDoor.
If you jog or walk at night, please wear reflective clothing (strips, blinking lights) on the upper part of your body. This makes you more visible to drivers going through the neighborhood. It is also a good idea to add a reflector to your dog's leash, collar or jacket so that they can be easily seen. Also, please be very cautious of walking your dog in the extreme heat. Dogs can become overheated very easily.
Dogs bark but....please be aware of how long it is going on as it can be very bothersome to your neighbors. Continual barking should be reported to 311.
Also, please remember to carry poop bags to pick up after your dog.

St. Charles Ladies Wine Club
Neighbors have organized a wine club for the ladies of St. Charles. The group meets monthly in various homes throughout the year. Ladies are invited to bring a bottle of wine or an appetizer.
If you are interested in meeting neighbors over a glass (or two) of wine, please email email@example.com to be put on the email list for invitations.
Parking on the Street
There are numerous complaints from neighbors about cars being parked on the street. This is an unsafe practice since we have had unlocked cars vandalized and they pose a safety hazard. Kids and pets can dart out from behind parked cars. It is also very unsafe for cars to be parked on the curve of a hill.
Please park your car in your garage or driveway. If you have a concern about a parking situation, contact LRPD Non-Emergency Line at 501/371-4829.
City Regulations Regarding Burning
Several residents have expressed concerns or had questions regarding burning of debris.

The permits are $5 and are good for one year. In addition, residents are required to check in with the Little Rock Fire Department to ensure that there is not a burn ban in place each time, before they begin to burn.,
Items allowed to be burned are restricted to leaves, grass clippings and shrubbery clippings.
