Clubhouse News

WE ARE FENCED and gates are Locked. So we are sure you have noticed that we have finished fencing our Community Club and the only access residents will have to the fields and playground areas will be through the main gate at the Office. To use the Dog Park you will need to walk past the tennis courts and behind the pools towards the back. Dogs will no longer be permitted access to the field areas – so if you bring your children to play on the playground you cannot bring your dog/s. It is more important than ever that residents bring their key cards to access the facility.

Resurfacing the Community Club Parking Lot

Paving our parking lot at the Community Club is expected to start early in November, dates to be determined. All paved areas – parking lot and entrance to the facility will be CLOSED for a minimum of 2-days. The Clubhouse facilities will be open – however – you will have to park along New Tampa Blvd in the grass area in front of the Tennis Courts and then walk in. We will post the dates as soon as they are confirmed. **Notices will be post on Nextdoor.com and on the Trending & Bulletin Boards at the club.

Dogs Running Loose

Many of you are posting on Nextdoor.com that dogs are running loose throughout the community. Unfortunately the HOA cannot take the lead on this issue – we all need to be vigilant in calling Animal Control – 813-744-5660. If possible take a photo and provide the address of the owner.

wm-love-your-neighborWant to be a great neighbor? Here are 5 things to be make our neighborhood awesome!

 

Share important information

If you know a great housekeeper, handyman, dog walker or lawn-mowing service, etc it’s a great thing to give a referral checklist.

Keep up your curb appeal

We have the HOA to keep us all in line, but don’t be that guy in the neighborhood. Keep your space neat and clean.

Be a responsible pet owner

Clean up after your pooch and be mindful where you dump the waste. 

Welcome new neighbors!

It’s always nice to meet a new friendly face. Introduce yourself and extend your friendship.

Be a respectful party host

Abide by the community rules and be mindful of your music, your guests’ parking or any other disturbances that your party may be to your neighbors.
