ATV’s In Streets

Hello everyone,

The Board has received a number of complaints about residents who received ATV’s for Christmas and are driving them in the community causing hazardous conditions to pedestrians and vehicles in the streets & sidewalks. This includes ATV’s being driven out of driveways at highspeed without regard for residents and cars in the area.

The following rules are some of the laws set down by Florida on the use of ATV’s and UTV’s:

  • In Florida, an ATV may be operated on an unpaved public roadway, with a posted speed limit less than 35 m.p.h., during the day. You are not permitted to operate an ATV or UTV on any other public road, street or highway.
  • Any person under 16 years of age must be supervised by an adult during operation of an ATV or UTV.
  • Any person under 16 years of age who is operating an ATV or UTV in Florida must have in his or her possession a certificate evidencing the satisfactory completion of an approved OHV safety course, unless that person is a non-resident in Florida temporarily for a period not to exceed 30 days.
  • It is unlawful to operate an ATV or UTV in a careless or reckless manner that endangers or causes injury or damage to another person or property.

Please see the Florida Statutes page on ATV’s or Google “Florida ATV Laws” for more information on what is required.

And as New Years Eve is upon us we want to remind residents some basics on fireworks if you want to set them off:

  • Fireworks are only allowed to be setoff in your own driveway. Do not use the sidewalks or streets.
  • Please have a hose or bucket of water nearby to extinguish any fireworks as needed
  • Please cleanup after you finish
  • Please have an adult present; do not allow underage children to play with fireworks.

Thank you and have a safe holiday weekend.

Santa will be visiting our community next Sunday, the 19th! He will be driving through our community so have your little ones waiting out on your driveways so they can say hi to him! He will start his visit at 5:30 PM and will drive down all our streets to greet the children. Don’t miss him!

Announcing Our Holiday Contests!

Hello residents!

We want to announce two contests we are holding for the holiday season:

The first contest is a Holiday Decoration Hunt! We will be posting a page soon with various pictures of decorations that can be found in our neighborhood. Just find the house number & street name where each decoration can be found. On December 26th we will randomly choose 5 winners from the correct entries (one entry per household) with each one winning a $20 Publix gift card. Full directions on how to enter will be on the web page, coming soon.

Our second contest will be a Holiday Decorating contest! During the week of Christmas a member of a neighboring HOA will come in to tour our community and select a first and second place winner for best Holiday decorations. So if you haven’t put up your decorations you still have time! First place wins a $50 Publix gift card and second place wins a $25 Publix gift card.

Garbage/Recycling/Yard Waste for Next Week

Hello everyone,

Due to Thursday being a holiday, our pick-up services will be pushed back to the next day:

Garbage and Recycling will be picked-up on Friday

Yard waste will be picked up on Saturday

Please do not put your cans out early! This can lead to attracting more bears to the neighborhood if your garbage sits out for several days.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
