vegetation, which took a good deal of time. This effort to clear the retaining wall actually started back in 2006."

 

Doucette went on to say, "The chain link fence will be painted and touched up during the flow of time. While realizing its condition is poor and that it really needs to be replaced in the not too distant future, the plan

 
 

is to at least keep it touched-up and looking as good as possible for the time being. Any improvement is far better than its present condition. We have already received a "thumbs up" from an out sailing neighbor from the nearby Stonegate Apartments."
