Masks at Pittsfield township are optional, but recommended. Pittsfield township is following the COVID levels closely and we will let you know any change to our meeting.


Our playground has been inspected, so look for a few changes. We have to add mulch and stone to meet the minimum requirement. The yellow play structure will be sanded and re-stained with a child safe paint. We will also get the backstop fixed. If you see a problem with the park, please let Compass know.

Bridge committee -- Lets regroup and meet at the South Park on June 12th at 3pm (and not June 22nd). Anyone is welcome to brainstorm ideas for installing bridges in the South Park.

Platt road entrance sign is working! We had an electrical contractor fix the underground cable. Calling all electricians -- If you have skills and can work with power, we need to replace the light sensor at the Platt Road entrance. (The light is continuously on) Please email for details.

Trash Containers -- Per our bylaws, trash containers need to be hidden from public view (except for trash days). Leaving them in the driveway is a no no.

Activities -- We may, might, have an end of school celebration in the Park. Stay tuned for date and location.

We need volunteers! -- We will have a sign up sheet at the annual meeting.
