Community Updates and Tips

We hope all of you are happy with the upgrades to our neighborhood; from the new landscaping, to the picnic table at the park, to the pool heaters, and coming soon the upgrade to our pool cabana area.

The cabana upgrades will start on Tuesday April 5 with power washing, repainting and remodeling of the bathrooms.

Because of this the pool will be closed starting on Wednesday April 6 and ending (hopefully) at noon on Friday April 8.  Be aware this is not being paid for out of operating budget, but from our reserves, which keep our more expensive items covered.

Here are a few things all of us can do on a daily basis to keep our community looking and being the best:

1. Please do not put leaves, trash or any other items in our sewer (drainage) system. ALL THESE THINGS end up in OUR neighborhood ponds. This causes our ponds to eventually needing to be dredged. THIS costs tens of thousands of dollars to keep the ponds clean. If you use landscaping companies, please tell them to not blow leaves in the sewers (same goes for you if you maintain your property yourself).

2. Please, please pick up after your dogs (big and small!). There are poop stations all throughout our neighborhood.

3. Speed limit (unless posted otherwise) is 25 MPH. As one of our favorite sign says “DRIVE LIKE YOUR CHILDREN LIVE HERE”.

Thank you all for making Reflections one of the best looking communities in the area. Our housing prices, as well as speed of turnover, reflect this best. It is up to all of us. We are our own greatest assets.

Sincerely, 

Your Board of Directors 

Van Dyke Rd Traffic Update

Wanted to give all of our residents an update on the Van Dyke Rd Widening Project.

Unfortunately it looks like the project will not be complete until at least until late 2025 or into 2027.

We understand that this does not make any of us happy but we have given Hillsborough County Commissioner Ken Hagan an idea for a temporary fix for our situation.

We asked for a temporary traffic light at the intersection of Lake Reflections and Van Dyke. We are asking that the light function Monday through Friday, from 6:30AM to 9:30AM and 3:30PM to 6:30PM. The rest of the time including Saturday and Sunday it would flash yellow on Van Dyke and red on Lake Reflections and Darby. He is intrigued by this idea and will be working with the public works department to see if this can happen.

In the mean time, we need your help. Please email Commissioner Hagan at hagank@hillsboroughcounty.org, as soon as possible. Thank him for trying to make this idea happen. Stress the safety factor and how dangerous leaving our community can be for our residents and school busses, especially turning left onto Van Dyke. Please focus on the safety issue, not complaining. We were able to start this project and have it happen by stressing facts and safety concerns.

Please pass this on to fellow residents and others you know that use Van Dyke.

It is up to us to get this idea to happen.

Thank you.

We want to thank some of our residents who helped out this year to enhance our community:

George, who continually rides his bike through the neighborhood and picks up our litter that we should
be taking care ourselves.

Joe who has worked hard on the beautification of our property, with great looking landscape.

Matt and Cherish who did our holiday decorations that looked great and are planning to repeat that job
next year.

If you have any interest in helping out with either landscape or holiday decorating let us know.

Finally, Michelle and Jason, who take care of the signage board up front with new messages and also
takes care of our website, Reflectionsoflutz.com.

As a heads up our new message board was installed this past Thursday.

If you have any ideas to improve our community, please email our property manager Kevin Krueger at

Have a great 2021!
