Message From Judi O'Connor, Chairman:

Happy New Year!I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.

The CDD Board has had a busy year. In November we said goodbye to our longtime Chairman, Brad Smith and Vice Chairman, Joe Varady. We truly thank them for their service, and fortunately for us, they have offered to share their experiences and advice when we need it.

We are working diligently to get the New Year off to a good start. Some upcoming projects are:

GATES: The installation of the gates has been once again delayed. According to Rapid Security Solutions, installation will now begin on January 21 and be completed on February 5. Again, they note the schedule is tentative and subject to site availability and weather conditions.

PIER: It’s amazing how one problem seems to uncover another.This time, we are fortunate in as much as once getting a price to replace missing rails, manufacturer noted defective railing on the rest of the pier. All railing on the pier (missing and existing) will be replaced, hopefully by the end of January or mid-February. The product is being replaced at no cost, but we will be paying a fair labor cost.

OAK TREES along the boulevard will be trimmed shortly. There are limbs that are hanging low in areas that interfere with vehicles and utility poles that need to be taken care of.

IRRIGATION: Our system is old, and sprinkler heads and timers have been breaking more often than in the past. Most of these incidents are isolated and affect only certain areas, but there are neighborhoods that do not have their own shutoff valve, and unfortunately in order to be repaired, the entire community is without its reclaimed water for a few days at a time.We are looking into a remedy for this situation.

STORM DRAINS: We have had the storm drains inspected and some of the drains need work. We have developed a priority list and have requested bids from more than one company to take care of the more severely clogged drains. Pepper trees are contributing to the outflow problems and will be removed by a licensed mangrove trimmer in order not to damage or accidentally cut any mangroves.
