Your new 2017-18 Eagle Nest Directory has been delivered!

Fellow residents,

Good evening. A heads-up that your new 2017-18 Eagle Nest Directory was delivered today and should be waiting for you in your mailbox.
Please take a moment tonight and retrieve the directory so the U.S. Postal Service doesn't get irritated with us this week.
If you didn't receive your directory or it was somehow damaged, please email Secretary/Bookkeeper Chris'e Van Meter at and we'll get you a replacement copy. One per household, please.
As always, please feel free to contact me or any Board member with your suggestions/comments. We volunteer to serve as your Board because we, like you, are residents who only want the best for our wonderful development and all its residents.
Thank you for your continued support and for making Eagle Nest the most desirable neighborhood on the Northeastside!

Scott Thien, President

Pool reopens partially; season winds down with modified operating schedule

The Pool is open! Our water clarity has improved significantly, but for now only the shallow end is open. The deep end and slide eventually will  open, depending on how quickly our filters and chemical treatment can recover. Our life guard staff will determine when the deep end is available for use.

The Board apologizes for last weekend's one-day closure, but safety is always our first priority.

A reminder that our modified late summer schedule is in place through mid-September. Although weekday access is limited, the good news is our Pool will be open for business through mid-September. That's well past the traditional closing of most area pools the day after Labor Day -- an added bonus for our residents!

Check the earlier Facebook and blog posts for exact days and times. This week, the Pool is open 4-8 p.m. Monday through Friday.

2nd Annual Eagle Nest Curb Appeal Award winners announced

Well, the secret nominations are in, so it’s time to announce the winners of the 2nd annual Eagle Nest Curb Appeal Awards. Drum roll for the 2017 winners, please …

First place (right): 8031 Teel Way (Lot 52, Harry and Linda Riebe). The Riebes (Harry is a former president of the Eagle Nest Board) win a $75 gift card.

Second place (right): 8031 Tanager Lane (Lot 268, Joseph and Pam Meadors). The Meadorses win a $50 gift card.

Third place (right): 7809 Nightingale Court (Lot 332, Jim and Claudette Lane home). The Lanes (Claudette is head of our Garden Club) win a $25 gift card.

  • 8250 Warbler Way (Lot 120, Tom and Cindy Corbett
  • 8016 Tanager Lane (Lot 292, Randy and Kari Tiffey)

How do you win a Curb Appeal Award? Basically, it comes down to how your property appears from the curb. The judges -- two of last year’s winners and a Board member -- looked at every lot in the development and based their selections on the landscaping presentation and overall condition of the home. Judging was done the second week of August. (Previous winners were not eligible to win.)

Curb Appeal Award winners set the gold standard for home ownership in Eagle Nest, and they exemplify why our neighborhood continues to a popular residential destination. Well-kept properties translate into solid property values, and that's something we all can appreciate. A big thank you goes out to these property owners!

For the few weeks, each of the winners will display a Curb Appeal Award winner sign in their front yard, so residents can easily spot these exemplary properties.

Congrats to all our 2017 Curb Appeal Award winners!

Mark your calendar: 2017 Pool season winds down with a modified schedule

Now that summer is winding down and the bulk of our lifeguards have returned to school, the Pool will operate under modified schedule through mid-September:

August 24-25 -- 4 to 8 p.m.
August 26 -- 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
August 27 -- 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
August 28-Sept. 1 -- 4 to 8 p.m.
Sept. 2 -- 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Sept. 3 -- 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Sept. 4 (Labor Day) -- 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Closed Sept. 5-8
Sept. 9-10: Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Closed Sept. 11-15
Sept. 16-17: Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Sept. 18: Pool closed for season

As always, pool operation is subject to change based on weather and water conditions. We've had sporadic issues with our new pumps the past few weeks, and as a result the water has been a little cloudy. Use of the deep end may be restricted based on lifeguard instructions.

Most area pools close the day after Labor Day, but our dedicated Pool staff has agreed to provide extended coverage because they know residents appreciate the extra access. Be sure to thank them for a job well done this summer as you wrap up your visits to the facility.

Questions/concerns? Feel free to contact Pool Manager Susan Anderson at

The Board hopes everyone enjoys the rest of the 2017 Pool season!

Area car break-ins a reminder to take protective steps, keep vehicles locked

Several area neighborhoods including Eagle Nest, Lantern Hills, Castleton Farms, Yorkshire and areas around Fall Creek and Lantern have reported a rash of early morning vehicle break-ins and garage intrusions in the past few weeks, according to social media. Cars parked in the street or in cul-de-sacs were broken into, and in at least two instances garage door openers and other items in clear view were taken, resulting in open garage doors overnight. Luckily, no home invasions were reported.

Some of the affected residents have provided police with home surveillance video and photos, and detectives are actively investigating with the material they have collected. Anyone with any information about vehicle break-ins is asked to contact the following IMPD detectives:

The Eagle Next Board reminds residents to ensure vehicles are locked if parked outside, and to keep garage door openers, loose change, book/gym bags, small electronics, etc., out of plain view to reduce the temptation of theft. Installing motion-sensitive security lights and home and vehicle security systems are other preventative measures.

The Board also encourages residents to be active in our Crime Watch group, which has found growing interest and support thanks to our quarterly meetings featuring guest speakers in personal safety and anti-crime measures. Contact Crime Watch chief Carolyn Goldenetz at to volunteer or join the next event.

Most importantly, if you see something suspicious don't hesitate -- call 911 immediately. As we know, crime knows no boundaries. The Board can't control those who wander into our neighborhood, of course, but residents can take steps to minimize property loss (or worse) and help keep our development safe and trouble free.
