Well located on property behind Yorkshire Lane and Anna Lane homes

Letter dated April 11, 2015.

We are the owners of the land adjacent to the Townes Subdivision behind the homes on both Yorkshire Lane and the southernmost portion of Anna Lane.

It has been brought to our attention that an abandoned well has been found on our property directly behind a home on Anna Lane. Please know that we had no knowledge of the existence of this well. The area has now been marked with no trespassing signs and yellow tape and will be filled in as soon as possible.

While the well was found on our property, the safety of our neighbors in the Townes is our primary concern. The safest course of action is to refrain from entering the property. Most importantly, please make sure your children do not play in the area. There are wonderful wooded trails, maintained by PARA, close-by which are far better suited for children’s play. Again, our concern is for the safety of you and your children.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
