What's New

Christmas Package Delivery

package

It's that time of year to watch out for holiday package thefts.

Corporal Tracy Duffy and the New Castle County Police continue to warn residents about the risk of having packages delivered to an empty home. Unfortunately, “Package Pirates” are on the look-out for an easy grab. They have a few tips to keep these “Pirates” from taking your packages.

  1. Opt to require a signature for all package deliveries.

  2. Consider sending the package to a family member or trusted neighbor who
    is home during the day to accept the delivery.

  3. Use the “pick-up at store” option for merchandise or pick-up packages at a local UPS or FedEx location.

  4. Sign-up for e-mail or text message alerts from UPS or FedEx. These alerts will notify customers of when packages were delivered.

Remember, if you are a victim of a theft; please call the New Castle County Police. Their non-emergency number is: 302-573-2800.

Neighborhood Directory 2018

directoryThe Directory is just another benefit of your civic association dues.

We have had approximately 33 new residents move in to our neighborhood since we last distributed the directory in February of 2016.

Keeping up with resident changes is a large task. If your information is incorrect please contact Mary Rodgers. We publish only the owner's last name and phone contact. Mary or a District Rep may be calling in the next 2 months to confirm your current phone number. Please respond.

Please remember that the directory is for Green Acres residents use and NOT to be used for any form of solicitation within the community.

We anticipate publishing an updated directory in January 2018.
