Message from the President - January 2021
Hello, Sunshine Ranches Homeowners Association
(SRHOA) residents! May I begin by wishing all of you
health, wealth, and happiness for 2021! We live in a
beautiful community with wonderful people. Together, I
know we will make this an exceptional year.
Here are issues/activities/events I wish to share:
• Perhaps you have seen our communications via email
and/or Facebook. With support from the Town, we are
engaging in initiatives to promote traffic calming, noise
abatement, safety, and responsible use of fireworks.
Thank you for all the positive feedback we have received.
If you have not seen our messages, please check the
Waggler and keep in touch with us through any of the
Also, please read the Town’s monthly Southwest Rancher
for other vital information and contacts. I would be
remiss to not thank Jason Halberg and the rest of the
SRHOA board for their assistance and support.
• In late November, the Town contacted the SRHOA
concerning a proposed Northbound turn lane onto
148th Avenue (Volunteer Road) from Eastbound Sheridan
Street: your input was needed within a short twoweek
response window. You, the residents of Sunshine
Ranches, responded in overwhelming opposition to this
proposal (via our firstname.lastname@example.org). At
the December 9th general meeting, in the presence of
a quorum, the residents motioned to request Council
adopt a resolution supporting our position. The motion
was presented at the December 10th Town Council
meeting, and will move forward in January. Thank you to
Councilman Kuczenski for supporting his residents.
• We have a goal to install our Pioneer Plaques in
2021… if we missed you (a resident of 30 years or more),
please contact us. These tokens of thanks and recognition
will be installed at both major entryways into Sunshine
Ranches (Griffin and Hancock & Flamingo and Stirling),
commemorating our community’s founding families.

Message from the President
• Are you planning to go away for the holidays? If
so, please consider Davie Police Department’s (DPD)
Homeowners Vacation Extra Watch, a program created
so homeowners, on brief trips or vacations, can request
an extra watch of their residence. Simply fill out the
form and a Davie Police Officer will make every effort
to conduct an extra watch of your residence while you
are away. DPD urges you not to announce on social
media you are away, and to make arrangements with a
trustworthy neighbor, friend, or family member to collect
your mail or any deliveries you may be expecting. They
also recommend setting outside lights to turn on and off
with a timer. To apply for this program, visit
and complete the online form.
• Have you thought about getting more involved with
the Town or the HOA? Do you believe in our community’s
vision? Here are some ways to help. The Town has several
volunteer boards: consider applying to one which suits
your interest and expertise. Both the Town and the
HOA have publications: consider writing an article for
submission. The HOA has upcoming elections in March.
The SRHOA Nominating Committee is establishing the
slate of officers and board members (which must be
announced in January). If you would like to serve on
the HOA board, and appear on the slate, contact the
Bob Parker - email@example.com
Lori Parrish - firstname.lastname@example.org and
Rose Williams - email@example.com
Candidates must submit written notice to the SRHOA
secretary, Vilma Lopez.
• The next general meeting of the SRHOA will be
Wednesday, January 27th at 7:30pm. Please look for
Zoom details to be provided.
Again, I wish you a wonderful start to the year, with
warmest wishes for the months ahead.
