Message from the President - October 2021

  • On September 11th, the mayor, along with other members of the council, town staff, fire and police departments, as well as many residents, commemorated the 20th anniversary of 9/11. It was heartfelt and beautiful. If you have not done so, please visit the memorial plaque which sits at the flagpole. Photographs are available on our Sunshine Ranches Facebook page.

  • The SRHOA supports the Davie Police Department in their recent donation efforts for Haiti. The department continues to encourage us to do the following:

  • Don’t leave anything in plain sight; don’t leave recently purchased gifts in plain view.

  • Never leave your purse unattended in your vehicle, even while you are pumping gas.

  • Park in a well-lit area at night.

  • Store packages out of sight in your locked trunk. If you want to continue shopping after stashing packages, move the car to another location.

  • Do not leave packages or valuables on the seat of your car. This creates a temptation for thieves. If you must leave something in the car, lock it in the trunk or put it out of sight.

  • While attending parties, be sure not to leave valuables in your vehicle.

  • Avoid parking next to vans, trucks with camper shells, or cars with tinted windows.

  • Our HOA has a healthy treasury. We are thinking of ways to utilize the funds as to benefit the community. For one, we are revamping the entryways. A holiday gathering is in the works for December 12th. It is time for a donation to the Scholarship Fund. Equestrian Park has some minor projects our HOA could support. We hope you like these ideas and welcome your input.

  • Speaking of funds, we have had some wonderful residents who have contributed to the SRHOA treasury. We would like to recognize the following members for their generosity:

  • The Moyers Family: Holatee Trail

  • The Grissen Family: Luray Road

  • The Taylor Family: Melaleuca Road

  • If you would like to become more involved in the SRHOA, we have committees which need volunteers. Feel free to contact the board with your interests.

  • Do you feel extra traffic or equestrian signage is needed on your street? If so, please reach out to Michelle McBride and Marianne Allen; the ladies are locating sites. This mapping will wrap-up soon, so do not hesitate.

  • Our town’s charter is up for review. A committee has been appointed by the council. One of our residents, Marianne Allen, is proudly serving on this committee and wishes to have our/your input. For your convenience, please utilize the following URL or QR code to access the charter:

  • Mayor Breitkreuz’s next “Q & A with Mayor Steve Breitkreuz” will be on October 13th. Please join Steve’s Zoom meeting to enjoy a relaxed and collegial discussion concerning events and needs of the Southwest Ranches community.

  • Remember, the Council now meets face-to-face at Town Hall on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month.

  • Please stay connected…join our SRHOA Gmail (sunshinerancheshoa@gmail.com), visit our website (www.sunshineranches.org), or view our posts at www.facebook.com/SunshineRanches.

As always be safe, be happy, and be loved.
