Cameron Wood Neighborhood Watch Program
We are seeking volunteers that wish to get involved with keeping Cameron Wood safe by forming the
Cameron Wood Neighborhood Watch.
The goal is to have a network of residents looking out for other residents in Cameron Wood and making
our community safer and stronger. To be clear, there haven’t been any major issues or concerns that are
sparking this program; this program was a suggestion at the annual board meeting.
If you wish to learn more details and get involved, please reach out to Cameron Wood VP Mike O’Kelly

Snakes Around Cameron Wood
Many of us are spending more time outdoors now that the temperatures are rising, so you may
encounter some other creatures sharing our paths and trails – snakes. Snakes are most active during
the spring and summer, so if you are interested in familiarizing yourself with the various types of snakes
we have in Cameron Wood, here are two articles you can check out:
Update on Inspections
During the past few months, this has been a difficult time for everyone in our community in some way,
shape or form. The Cameron Wood HOA board made the decision in Mid-March to suspend inspections
and violations, except for public safety issues, due to the uncertainty of what was going to happen due
to Covid-19. Some residents may have received notifications after that date, but those were for
inspections that happened weeks before the pandemic hit Charlotte.
We fully understand on the heels of the tornado that ripped through our neighborhood, Covid-19 put a
stress on some of our neighbors and made it difficult to maintain their yards and homes and fix what
was needed to be fixed. That is why there was a hiatus on rules and regulations for almost 10 weeks.
During that time, many residents got the opportunity to complete DIY projects and to repair some of the
damage done by the tornado. It also appears some have not had an opportunity to do so.
We ask that if neighbors see that something needs to be done, please reach out and offer a helping
hand. Someone could be working the frontlines at a hospital and not have the time or energy to perform
that repair at this time.
It’s all about neighbors helping neighbors.
With that said, our property management company CAM (Community Association Management) has
restarted their monthly inspections of the neighborhood and will be sending out reminder letters to
anything that sits outside of the neighborhood guidelines.
If you are thinking of upgrading a deck, repairing a fence, or any other home improvement and you
are unsure if it falls in the community guidelines, please reference the Cameron Wood website and
submit an ARC request so we may assist you thru the process. All projects need to be documented and
approved before completion.
Please feel free to reach out to the board with any questions. We are all going thru this pandemic
together and may be able to assist.

Mecklenburg County to Resume Regular Yard Waste and Bulk Pickup on 6/1
Please remember that you are responsible for the disposal of anything not taken by the county. In addition, make sure that the roadway and curbside is raked or swept after trash has been taken as this debris has been blocking drainage when it remains in the roadway.
