- People throwing trash all over common property. In some cases, these are school kids returning home from the school buses letting them out, and in many other cases, adults driving through property or emptying out the car into the visitor lots. We find all manner of food wrappers and foam products all over as well as beer bottles and cans. We spend hours picking up trash around the property several days a week and still people trash the place out with complete impunity.
- Large numbers of dog owners are not picking up after their dogs when walking them on common property, some are very large dogs. No one likes stepping in dog poop, and we do not like driving around the property in the Gators and having it get caught in the tires. We have kids playing here and the place is loaded with “lawn mines”. Please pick up after your dogs! It is easier to do that than to risk a fine from the HOA and/or the City.
- I called PD today because I saw two guys loitering around on the East side and hiding their faces when I drove past them. That is usually a sign they are up to no good. We have had recent problems with home break-ins and package thefts, among other things. Please notify the Police if you see suspicious folks wandering around our property. We have to remain vigilant and keep an eye on our surroundings.
- Fire Lanes – we still have many residents and their visitors who park vehicles in the fire lane. That is always illegal and will get you either fined or towed. Although our governing documents mention that service and delivery vehicles can park in the street during regular business hours, all of our streets are clearly marked Fire Lanes. Fire Code is very specific about what vehicles are allowed to be in the Fire Lane. Those vehicles are Police, Fire or Ambulances on official business. So, any other vehicle parked in the Fire Lanes that is not Police, Fire or Ambulance on official business is at risk of fines, towing and/or impounding. Police can write citations for parking in the fire lane, as well.
- We have also had recent incidents of people dumping stuff on HOA property, such as old furniture and dumping an old refrigerator in the front flower bed of their townhouse. Dumping is illegal, to say the least, and we do get the City involved in most instances. If you have a large item you need to dispose of, call the Office and we will make arrangements to get it properly picked up. We do not, however, deal with large home appliances such as refrigerators/ freezers.
