2013 Community Day Photos (05/09/13)
If you haven't heard the news, we had a great day on Saturday, May 4th as we celebrated the 30th Anniversary of The Cape at our Community Day event. A great group of walkers were out at 8:30 to "do the loop" ending back at Rouen Court for the dedication of the new Carmine V. Rotunda Community Park. At noon we moved over to Nautical Greens for our Cookout and Ice Cream Social. We had a tent set up with plenty of seating, games and activities for the kids. We even had a fire truck and clown which were both enjoyed by kids and adults alike. We want to thank everyone who came out and participated; and for those of you who couldn't make it this year - there's always next time! We've uploaded photos that were taken during the day to the Photo Album page of this website. Feel free to look through them at your leisure.

Change Your Clock, Check Your Smoke Detectors (03/09/13)
As Sunday, March 10 approaches, New Hanover County Fire Rescue wants to remind residents not only to make changes to their clocks but also to check their smoke alarms. Change the battery in your smoke alarm and test it to ensure it is working. Making this simple change could not only save your life but the lives of your family. They'd also like to remind residents that smoke alarms should be replaced after 10 years. This is true for most battery operated, hardwired, or interconnected smoke alarm.

Upcoming Road Closure – Lakeview Drive: between The Cape Blvd. & Club Court (10/07/12)
Beginning Wednesday 10/10/12 through Friday 10/19/12 Lakeview Drive will be closed to traffic between The Cape Blvd. and Club Court from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Due to the constant movement of machinery and materials during construction we think it safest to the community to close off Lakeview to thru-traffic at The Cape Blvd. Residents adjacent to the construction will have access to their driveways; however some tactical coordination may be necessary. The construction company has assured us that they will make all efforts to coordinate with the respective property owners.
In closing the road all residents on Club Court, Lakeview Drive, Fairways-at-the-Cape, Fredrica Court, Colony Green Court, Pinehurst-at-the-Cape and Nantucket Court will continue to have unencumbered access to homes via Sedgley Drive. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
