This recently occurred in the small Commons, and our lawn service is contracted only for the cleanup of the public areas, not for individuals transporting their leaves and other yard waste for disposal. Our association fees go to paying for this cleanup and each resident’s yard waste is his or her own responsibility, not our collective neighbors’.

A resident has requested a list of neighborhood teenagers wanting to make extra money weeding, mowing lawns, shoveling snow or general help around the house. If you have someone like this in your house, please reply to this message and we will compile a list and send it out to anyone who asks. I know we are going to need a lot of help raking in the next couple of months!

Thank you,
Ellen Palmer

img-kickball-logoHi, everyone! Just wanted to invite anyone who wants to play to our adult kickball game this Saturday from 3-5. Bring some beers and join us in the Commons for a couple of hours of fun.

If you need someone to watch your kids, we can get babysitters to watch the little ones in the tot lot or we can do a drop at Danielle Ohm’s house on Fox Grove Ct. while we play. If you’re in, please RSVP as soon as you can. We need at least 12 players for a proper game.

Thanks, and hope to see you Saturday!

Canterbury Commons is considered one of the best kept secrets in Oakland County. Our subdivision is located in Farmington Hills, Michigan, close to the I-696 expressway and minutes from shopping and restaurants.

The purpose of this website is to ensure that the residents of Canterbury Commons are kept informed of the events happening in and around the community, and have ready access to information related to our subdivision and other useful Internet resources.

Complete with a 13 acre commons area, which boasts a walking trail and two playgrounds, Canterbury Commons residents enjoy a distinctive setting to develop a strong, wholesome and active family lifestyle.

We offer many events during the year for the families of our subdivision to enjoy, such as our annual picnic each September, complete with events for kids of all ages.

Thank you for visiting our website and check back often. We are in the process of updating the website and will be adding more information in the future.

Canterbury Commons was developed in the mid-1960’s as a premier residential community, one of the first to have commons areas belonging equally to each homeowner. Canterbury Commons continues to be an excellent place to live, with stable home values, top-rated schools and city services second to none. We have 13 acres of beautiful commons area with a walking trail and two playgrounds. When the neighborhood association was formed in the 1960’s, bylaws and binding covenants were put in place to ensure the on-going integrity of the neighborhood. While each homeowner is responsible for their own property, the rules governing allowable alterations and additions are designed to protect and maintain the cohesiveness of the neighborhood. Please visit these links to view information on the Canterbury Commons By-Laws and other issues regarding fences, additions, etc.
