Community Landscape Update

The Board has filed a lawsuit against LMP, our previous landscaping company as they refuse to acknowledge their responsibility for burning the grass at the entrance to our community. It’s in the hands of the court.

We will keep you informed.

Community Landscape Update – Message from our new HOA President

Hello Everyone! My name is Joe Ramos. I recently took over as President of our HOA from Lloyd Perlman.

We are all very frustrated with the burnt grass at the entrance to our community. LMP, our previous landscaping company,  burnt it and refused to replace it. We are working with our management company, Greenacres and their lawyers to reach a settlement with LMP’s insurance company to replace the grass.

It has taken much longer than we would like. Unfortunately, we have no other recourse other than to fix it ourselves and then seek reimbursement, which we would not like to do since the magnitude of the expense is in the $50k range.

Hopefully, we can get this done in the next few weeks as well as other projects that had been postponed due to our issues with LMP. We will keep you informed!!

Suggestions and comments are welcome. You may email me at joeramostv@gmail.com.

We are in this together!

Sincerely, Joe.

Community Landscape Update

We wanted to update everyone about our common area landscape in the community.

On June 28 our current landscape company, LMP, treated a large portion of our community grass. The product they used was incorrect.

Prior to this incident your landscape committee with two Board members on it, had been interviewing other landscape companies because of the degraded service we’ve experienced from LMP over the last year. We gave LMP a thirty day notice on June 30, two days after their incorrect treatment, that they will no longer service our community.

Our property manager Kevin has been in conversation with the LMP district manager and they claim the grass will come back. We disagree that all of it will come back and hired a third party to determine the extent of the damage. They have been out to measure and taken samples of our grass to be tested to determine the damage to the grass and how much will not come back, if any.

We are seeking legal advice from our attorney and the insurance company for LMP has been notified about this issue in hopes of coming to a resolution.

Will keep you updated on this. 

Thank you your Board of Directors

Complete and Return Proxy for Proposed HOA Amendment

As you know, the Board of Directors continues to try and do what’s best our neighborhood and the home values. With this in mind the Board is suggesting amending our documents to add a rental stipulation. The purpose of this amendment is to deter new buyers/ investors from buying property in our community for the sole purpose of turning these homes into short term rentals.  This is happening more and more in communities that don’t have rental stipulations. 

If you presently own a resident in our community and/or are now presently renting, you will be grandfathered in, and this will not affect you. 

On July 1, 2021 the state law is being changed and HOAs will no longer be able to add rental stipulations to their documents. With this in mind, we ask you to please return your signed proxy as soon as possible in the return envelope you received.  

If you have questions, feel free to to ask one of the Board members when you see them out and about our neighborhood. 

Thank you as always for being a part of this great community.

Alligator Sightings

Alligator’s are common in our community ponds and lakes. We have seen one in particular very close to the shore line of the lake across from the pool.

Keep an eye out and be careful when near the shore lines.

Important Pool News

Your Board of Directors wants to make you aware of situations going on around our pool area.

We’ve received reports of children inside the pool area after 10:00 PM drinking alcoholic beverages. In addition the irrigation timer at the pool area was destroyed and graffiti was drawn on the both the sidewalk and the bike rack, all which cost our community almost a $1,000 to repair. We’ve also had reports of unaccompanied children climbing the fence to enter the pool area and doing damage to the pool equipment and furniture.

We are looking into a security system to monitor the pool area or to have a deputy sheriff patrol our neighborhood, all which will cost our community more money.

If your anyone is at the pool after hours as stated on the signage, they can be cited for trespassing.

Please keep an eye on your children and our community; if you see something, say something.
