Community Garage Sale

The Ethans Green Community Garage Sale is over for another year.  The weather was good, our sellers were happy and our buyers went home with carloads full of bargains.  This year, resident realtor Kim Kapustik of Keller Williams Realty donated the printing of 500 maps, most of which were snapped up the first day.  We had 105 registered participants. At the end of the sale, participating homes received a list of local charitable organizations that are happy to receive donations of the unsold items.  This list is available to any resident who is interested in redirecting items which they no longer need.  Send your request for this list to

Board Inspects Common Areas

On May 23, the Homeowners Association board members conducted a drive-around inspection of all common areas within Ethans Green.  The board checked the condition of all structures, landscaping, signage, and ponds.  The goal of the board is to ensure that the appearance of our common areas is maintained to the high standards our residents have come to expect.  Among issues scheduled to be addressed are replacement of weathered/missing signs by ponds, treatment of the Liberty/Appleby pond for excessive algae, sealing of the asphalt pathway at North Pond, and a drainage issue by the stairs of the Elisa Pond gazebo.

Many residents think that the playgrounds within Ethans Green are maintained by the homeowners’ board.  These are actually maintained by the City of Twinsburg.  If you see damage at any of these playground locations, please contact the city service department.
