Overbrook Gardens 776 Wall Repairs Completed

Overbrook Gardens 776 Wall Construction

[North Wall Construction]    [ South Wall Construction]

In mid-2010, the Overbrook Gardens Association decided to try to tackle what was clearly the worst eyesore in our community ----- the line of wooden fences bordering our neighborhood along SR 776. With the exception of a few sections most of these fences were in pretty bad shape. These fences were built due to the widening of 776 a number of years ago. Since these fences were on private property, the Association obtained Grants of Easement in order to tear them down and replace them with something more appropriate. Over the years, there has been a lot of time spent complaining about these fences and it is doubtful if anyone living in our neighborhood thinks they added to the looks of Overbrook Gardens. In fact, according to feedback from realtors in our area, our neighborhood looked so bad from SR 776 that many potential home buyers have refused to even look at Overbrook Gardens. This was very unfortunate since Overbrook Gardens is a great place to live. The people here are the best and the vast majority really care about their neighborhood and the overall quality of life here. We have amenities that most neighborhoods only dream of. Just look at our network of waterways, green spaces and our boat ramp.
