Message From Judi O'Connor, Chairman:

Happy Valentine’s Day.

Have you seen the pier?Take a walk when you get a chance.The handrails have all been taken care of.We have all new handrails on the “T” portion, and new sections on the remainder.At the moment, if you look down the pier it is kind of checker boarded with old ( 10’) and new (8’) sections, but they will weather nicely in a very short period time.

Other projects under way or taken care of are:

GATES: The installation of the gates has been once again delayed.Oye Vez!!!According to Rapid Security Solutions, the gates will be installed by February’s end.We’ll see.

OAK TREES along the boulevard have been trimmed. Limbs were hanging low in areas and interfered with vehicles and utility poles.This needed to be taken care of and has been.

IRRIGATION: In last month’s message, it was reported that there were neighborhoods that do not have their own shutoff valve(s).No sooner than I reported it, the main neighborhood without its own shutoff valves had them installed.

COMMUNITY COMMUNICATION between HOA’s has resulted from this one incident.Duane Swetland, Board Supervisor, will work with HOA’s to improve communication.When work is being done by one HOA that might affect others, the CDD would appreciate an email or call to the gatehouse.

STORM DRAINS: We have received some bids to take care of the more severely clogged drains, but we are waiting for others.Pepper trees are responsible for some of our drain issues and are presently being trimmed.

LED LIGHTS WILL soon replace regular lights on FPL owned poles.These poles are located on Pier Road and in front of the waterfront properties to and including Fairway Trace to Lantana Court.

The Mayor and Commissioners were present at our February meeting and presented Palmetto happenings and accepted questions from the community in attendance.It was very informative.

According to our local police department, car thefts are up.Please lock your cars!Car thefts in this community are occurring mainly in unlocked vehicles.Some people even leave their keys in the car.Not only should you lock your car, but make sure all items of any value are tucked away and out of sight, as their presence could also lead to a break-in.
