Please email our seven Hillsborough County Commissioners at the link below between now and Friday to let them know how unhappy we are with their negligence in the Van Dyke Rd project. Completion moved from 2024 to maybe 2029.

Express your concerns as you face this situation almost daily and how you and your family’s safety are effected.

Important Updates – Please Read

  1. Community Meeting to be held on Wednesday April 20 at 6:30pm at the neighborhood pool cabana.
  2. Board members will be going door to door this week to pick up the proxies for the April 20 meeting where we will vote to change the “signs” covenant. Have your proxies ready and signed if you have not mailed them in already.
    IMPORTANT: We must receive 75% YES votes to pass. Anything less and the existing covenant will remain and be enforced.
  3. The board will update the community on the Avalon Stables sale during the April 20 meeting. We will inform everyone what we know about the sale and the developer’s plans. The community needs to make some decisions on this subject.

Flag and Sign Covenant Update

Hello neighbors,

In our community meeting held on February 3, 2022 the overwhelming majority of the neighbors present wanted to be able to place non-controversial, seasonal signs and/or flags on their properties. The current covenant does not allow any kind of sign or flag except for the USA, POW/MIA or professional “for sale” signs. Those that have other signs or flags are in violation of the covenant that we all agreed to when we purchased a home in this community.

A new covenant has been drafted and will be mailed to your home during the week of March 28. Please review the proposed covenant and mark if you agree or not with the change. We would need 75% of YES votes from the TOTAL homes to be able to make the change. If we do not get 75% of the YES votes, then the current “No signs allowed” covenant will be enforced.

Someone will come to your home to collect your vote during the week of April 10.

Thank you,

Your Board of Directors
