Missing Cat -- Found 9/9/21
Have you seen a friendly, fluffy black cat around the neighborhood? Lily can often be seen wondering around Cardinal Square, sunbathing on sidewalks, and rubbing against cars. She's even been known to wonder into back yards! Lily is an outdoor cat who has a family on Harwood Court. Lily's owners haven't seen her in several days, which is very out of character! If you see Lily around town, please call her worried humans at 451-703-4507. Update: Lily has been found!
Early Pool Closure
The Board has been notified by our pool contractor that due to the lifeguard shortage our pool season is expected to be cut short as of Wednesday, August 18th. Due to COVID-19, the early start to the school year, and other factors, there has been a lifeguard shortage during this pool season. We are grateful to have been unaffected for most of the pool season. Our pool contractor continues to search for a lifeguard, and we will provide notification if there are any additional changes. For the most up to date information, please see the Cardinal Square Facebook group, or visit the Cardinal Square Website.

Communication Guide

Hello Cardinal Square,
The Board would like to provide an updated resource for residents. A Guide to Communication in Cardinal Square. We hope this guide will help clarify who to contact for specific requests and concerns and enhance efficiency and responsiveness for the community.  Not all issues are included in the document but we have attempted to include the most common ones.
