Yes come and look at how this place has gone to hell.A week before Memorial day and the weeds have not been cut one time.Now I see they are looking to hire someone to cut the weeds.The front of my place looks like a swamp.The last week of may and now they are looking for help.This is just B.S. I have told them I would do it for free ,But no they have to play games.This is why 25% on the homes are for sale. 10 years ago this was a wonderfull place to live now it,s the pits.

Sorry you feel that way, thanks for adding nothing to my post by the way!!! Its only Memorial day lest you relax. It was a early spring with no ice on the lake the weeds were growing long before years past. As for the weed boat they just got it back from being repaired a few weeks ago.(If you went to the meeting or cared you would have known that)

As for 25% of the homes for sale....there is always 10-15 percent for sale here they are summer homes for most people. Yes there are a lot for sale but there are lots of homes for sale in Naperville and Lemont so your point is mute.

I was just trying to promote the Flea Market...Not complain. If you want why not start your own to complain about things.

he is just trying to let people know that they will be coming to a jungle of weeds when they attend your flea market. just giving them a friendly heads up. some people dont get to go into your gated community and have high expectations. when they get there they will see that the place is an unmaintained dive and it might shock them.

he obviously takes pride in his home and community and has offered to voulenteer his time and effort to make it nice for everyone, but has been turned down. he sounds like a decent dude to me. just frustrated as hell. quite honestly i would be too. nothing pisses me off more than weeds growing like crazy and uncut grass. its one of the simplest things someone can do to make their home and community look nice and liveable.

Yup has only negative comments, I assume his life revolves around a sh*tty childhood. Im from San Diego and im 21 and I love Shadow Lakes. What do you say now? I've been farther up a tree than you've been out of town Mr. Yup. Keep your ignorant filled comments to yourself. Or better yet come down to Shadow Lakes and let everyone else know how you feel about them yourself.

WE DO.Is it so much to ask that when we,People that are still working, Come down find are weeds cut so we can get are boats out? That our kid s can fish or swim like the ads say? I will be down Friday and will report next week. If the weeds are cut and the place looks good I WILL SAY SORRY.

Get a grip on reality BRO, Who says I live in Shadow Lakes? Who says I don't own my own house, bought a new car, and make 80k a year rather than moving back to San Diego? Hmm... Please elaborate on what you do. Shadow Lakes Assoc. makes a profit, sure, but remember you don't pay water, garbage and maintenance fee's directly, its a lump sum, not to mention personnel to run the place. Take into consideration some other alternative scenarios the Assoc. encounters before you set speculation as fact. I'm positive having your lakes look like crap is a huge priority to fix in the budget, remember people leaving doesn't give profit. So maybe there maybe some reasons that it haven't been done.

who is the dick driving up the walking bridge? How can anyone think they are cool driving a golf cart. Take that golf cart to the bad lands and see how cool you are. Mess up the walking bridge?? Get a job you stupid hick. Tear up your own stuff. I pay my dues and love SL. Just need to get rid of a few of you. Ya can't fix stupid.
Born to be wild is about motorcycles not golf carts you fool.

The fishing is amazing with the weeds being not cut. It's nature and deal with it. Cook fish and enjoy.
