Message from the President - April 2021
Welcome to spring, and with it please accept the SRHOA wishes for a wonderful Passover and Easter celebration with those you love. We are not “foolin” either. Also, welcome to the returning, and newly-elected, officers of our HOA. There is much we plan to accomplish this year with your help.
Now, for our items of note/concern:
We are receiving an inordinate amount of complaints regarding construction issues. You are right to be concerned and unhappy; you have the right to be heard and have your concerns addressed! As a taxpayer, town officials are paid to assist you, so do not hesitate to call (954-434-0008) and lodge your complaints/concerns. You are more than welcome to contact the officers of your SRHOA and include us in your discussions or emails. We want to know you have been properly spoken to and/or visited. We are upset over the issues taking place lately and want our residents respected. Trust me when I tell you we are communicating with town officials on a regular basis to ensure this. Staff is assigned to review site plans, monitor construction process and fill permits, and oversee residents’ rights. Let’s make sure this happens.
Please be alert to scams via texts, calls, emails, and/or mail. Do not put out-going mail in your personal mailbox; utilize the official federal post-office boxes located at either Town Hall or our Publix at 148th/Griffin.
Officials from Waste Pro will join our April SRHOA meeting. Please attend (monthly meetings are still via Zoom)…talk to Ken and Sam…feel free to ask questions and engage in round-table discussion.
The Town is currently developing a strategic plan to address both short-term and long-term goals of the Town. To this extent, a survey has been designed for our input. The survey was included in the March issue of The Southwest Rancher; please complete and return by April 15th (there is a drop-box outside of the Town Hall door). Answer honestly, openly, and candidly…be heard.
Once again, the area of Master’s Academy is being considered for development. At this point, it is only in discussion; no plans have been submitted. The developer wishes to address the SRHOA. I have suggested either the May meeting or an advertised Zoom meeting. I let the developer know our position, as based on our previous experience with the Toll Brothers: nothing less than an RR designation will do. If there are further communications, you will know immediately.
The Town is offering COVID-19 testing. Hopes are this will evolve into vaccinations. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
Please bring new or gently used shoes to the designated drop-box at Town Hall, as we are supporting Archbishop McCarthy’s shoe drive.
Flamingo flocking is still taking place. If you receive a visit from our “fine-feathered friends,” donate generously to the SWR Scholarship Fund and know you are helping a child from our community complete their post-secondary education.
