the first developer in cardinal glen was birchwood homes: the model homes were the first 3 houses on cgc facing the bahai church; those models can be seen on both sides of down cgc almost to coloma ct. the county originally wanted our street to go thru to sugarland run…that would certainly have been better for traffic, but not for cardinal glen as a great neighborhood;-)
luckily for us, the property behind us was not for sale…it was a farm occupied by renters who were very nice people who had moved out to the country to escape the big city, and whose son was the subject of a police pursuit, complete with helicopter, after he knocked off a 7-11 in fairfax & ran home to momma memorial day w/e 1984…so the builder petitioned to county to allow a circle, and the rest is history;-)
there is also a story that building was suspended when graves were found…and a resident of red wing ct says he saw a bright glow over the stream one night, and has pictures to prove it…somewhere;-)
3 days after, these poor flowers are looking a bit droopy:-\
and so will anyone trying to walk around the circle be sad some neighbors neglected their civic (and legal) duty to clear their sidewalks within 6 hours of the end of the snowfall…it would have been SO much easier before it froze solid:-\but at least some neighbors had fun:-)
