Speed Limits & STOP Signs – Slow Down & STOP

The speed limit on Pacific Springs residential streets is a MAXIMUM of 25 mph except on Marcy in the school zone when children are present where it is 20 mph.

STOP signs mean STOP, not slow down and keep going, or worse, just keep going. 

OPD has been called and will be monitoring speed and STOP signs.

Neighborhood Pets

Pet ownership is a wonderful thing and in many (if not most) instances the pet or pets become part of the family.  Many Pacific Springs residents own pets; dogs, cats, etc.

If you do own a pet and you walk or otherwise allow your pet to be outside the confines of your own yard, please make sure you pickup after him/her if he/she does his/her business in the Park, in the public-right-of-way along our streets, on the Golf Course, or in a neighbor’s yard.   With regard to the Golf Course and your neighbor’s yard, this is private, not public property.  To allow the excrement to remain in the Park, the right-of-way, on the Golf Course or in a neighbor’s yard is anything but neighborly and can certainly cause hard feelings.  So, please clean up after your pets.  And with regard to the Golf Course, their cart trails are for golfers, not for pet walkers.

Be aware of the following City Ordinances:

Sec. 6-74. – Public nuisances.
It shall be unlawful for any person owning, keeping or harboring an animal or allowing such animal to be under his charge or control to do any of the following:
(a) Permit an animal to defecate on any privately owned or occupied property other than that of the owner or the person having control of the animal without immediately cleaning or removing the excrement;
(b) Permit an animal to defecate on public property, including designated off leash dog parks, without immediately cleaning or removing the excrement;
(c) Permit an animal to unreasonably obstruct the use and enjoyment of property held by others in the community by allowing such animal to habitually bark, howl, yelp, bay or make other noise which by loudness or frequency causes a breach of the peace; provided, however, this section shall not apply to the animal shelter, veterinarians, and medical laboratories;
(d) Permit unsanitary conditions to exist on any premises where an animal is kept which would cause foul or obnoxious odors, attract flies or vermin or otherwise threaten the public health and safety;
(e) Permit an animal to engage in menacing behavior including but not limited to the chasing of vehicles or the molesting, or frightening of passersby or neighbors.

An animal control officer may abate any of the above nuisances, either through issuance of a citation or impounding the animal, if no owner or agent can be found at the time of the nuisance.

(Ord. No. 36463, § 2, 12-16-03; Ord. No. 37945, § 2, 12-18-07)

City of Omaha Contract with AOT Public Safety Corp for False Alarm Services

City Ordinance/Contract with AOT Public Safety Corp

Click on the link above for the background/terms and conditions of the City’s contract with AOT Public Safety Corp for provision of false alarm services.  As a resident within the City limits you are required to register certain alarm system(s) you may have in your home with the City contractor (AOT Public Safety Corp).

Also, for the past two years (and perhaps longer) the invoices from the City contractor have stated there will be a $10 late fee if not paid within 30 days of the date on the invoice.  This is completely FALSE.  See City Ordinance 38512 which was effective in 2012.  This error was brought to the attention of City Finance.

Please Do Not Block the Sidewalks with Vehicles in Driveways

Please do not park vehicles, etc. in your driveway such that you block the sidewalk and impede pedestrian traffic. Doing so is an inconvenience to your fellow residents who walk the neighborhood.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Signs in the Neighborhood

The HOA Board is reminding Pacific Springs Lot owners of the provision in the Declarations that the only sign allowed on private property is one (1) For Sale sign, and once the property is sold, the sign announcing that fact must be removed within 10 days of the sale closing.

Further, under the provisions of Section 55-823 of the Omaha Municipal Code, no sign can be erected on public property without the prior approval of the appropriate public agency. This includes the public-right-of-way (PROW) along our streets, the entrance islands, and Pacific Springs Park. The PROW generally extends some 12.5 ft from the concrete street inwards toward the private property lots, and almost always encompasses the sidewalk. City of Omaha Municipal Code provisions apply as all of Pacific Springs is within the City limits. REALTORS and FSBO, please do not place For Sale signs on public property, and only place one sign on a private property lot (the placement of signs in the front and in the rear of a Lot is not allowed).

We know you want to sell your house, but please do so without violating the provisions of the Declaration and the Omaha Municipal Code, and please remind your Realtor of these rules.

The Declarations can be found on this website under “Important Legal Documents” and the Omaha Municipal Code can be found at Omaha Municipal Code.

Thanks.
