DINING IN OLD TRAIL Community dining news
DEVELOPER DISPATCH Old Trail community members may have noticed the increased development activity on property as work has begun on several new sections near the Village Center and along Old Trail Drive. Construction has begun on The Summit at Old Trail, what will be a 190-apartment complex of 1-2-3-bedroom units that will feature stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, a private theater, clubroom, business center, and rooftop sky lounge.
Residents near the Village Center will have also taken note of the construction started at the corner of Ashlar Avenue and Old Trail Drive, which will bring a mixed use building of apartments and two new retail locations in 2019.
Preparations have also begun for future lots in Blocks 11, 12, 22, and 32, which will consist of townhomes, villas, and single family homes coming onto the market late 2018 and in 2019.

If you are interested in joining this group, please contact Allen Billyk. For our homeowners, there are now several channels that are designed to foster communication and share ideas, concerns, and questions, and we encourage your participation:
Announcements Have an announcement, birth, engagement, wedding, anniversary, birthday, or general shout out to the community? Send announcements to Barbara Perkins at firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions for the next newsletter are requested by November 7th.

This is the Annual Membership Meeting. • Our Community Manager (Allen) and Old Trail General Manager (Chris) are holding weekly Coffee Chats at Grit Coffee on Tuesdays at 9:30am, offering a casual opportunity to talk about lifestyle and community related topics. • The Old Trail Newsletter is a joint effort between Management and the Association, and is intended to serve as our main means of communication on a monthly basis. • Email communications are also sent from time to time to share information and updates.
