Emergency Yellow Dot Program – Hillsborough County has a new emergency program.  It is called the Yellow Dot program.  It was created by a widow whose husband had a diabetic episode, passed out and hit a tree or pole and was killed in the accident.  She wanted to give something back and created this program.  Go to a fire station (there is one across Sheldon from the park) and ask for a yellow dot – you simply put that on the back window of your car and fill out a medical form for anyone driving or riding in the car who has medical issues and put the completed form in the glove compartment.  Then if you are in an accident and unconscious, the first responders see that yellow dot and immediately go to the glove compartment in your car to see how they can help with any medical emergencies.  A firefighter has expressed what a wonderful program this is to help them help us. Illegal Construction – Any addition to homes needs to have building permits that are issued by the County and the park. Code Enforcement does drive through the park periodically and checks.  There is a fine assessed and an order to remove construction if it doesn’t comply.  Please save yourself time, effort and money and do it right the first time! Construction of any structure on the lot is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN and violators are being reported to the County and if the structure is not removed that is grounds for eviction. Please remember that your are renting the lot so you CANNOT build on somebody else’s...

A Big Thanks We got through the season with no police response to fireworks or firearms calls.  No response because you were all law abiding and didn’t shoot any off.  Thanks! And, also a BIG thanks for controlling your noise level.  Please continue to do that.  It makes everyone’s life much easier and much more pleasant.   And, Happy New Year with Recommended Resolutions Here are some resolutions you will NOT want to break.  Some are cause for eviction or police involvement.   Aggressive Dogs – a recent resident found that refusing to get rid of their aggressive dogs resulted in being evicted from the park. Don’t let this happen to you … and it means not only large aggressive dogs, but small aggressive dogs.  Any dog – especially those not under a person’s control (leashed or in gated yard) can be aggressive to people or other dogs. Dumping anything at the park compound and Driving on the grass will get you an arrest.  Cameras have been installed and when reviewed and identified, police will be called and you will be arrested. House Care – inspect your home Pressure wash it or paint it if that is required. Readable house numbers must be on your house and your mailbox. Check (and replace if necessary) the tie-downs.  Get it done before hurricane season.  Tie-downs are effective for about ten years so if it has been longer than that since those on your house have been replaced, they need to at least be inspected.  For your safety and for the safety of your neighbors. Boats – some boats in the community are viewed as...

Christmas Merry Christmas; Happy New Year!  Thank you to those who have brightened our area  this Christmas with your decorations.  They truly make the area festive.   Another Reminder – Fireworks and Firearms Fireworks and Firearms are illegal.  Residents or guests seen using them will be arrested and evicted from the park.  Open-pit fires also are not allowed in the park.  They present a real fire hazard.   Purchasing Houses in the Park Park management approval is required prior to the purchase of any home in this community.  Even if the buyer has lived in the park before or the seller or buyer still live in the park, any home purchase still need to be approved by park management.   It’s The Season to be Jolly, But ….. It is always the season to be considerate of others.  Day and night, morning and noon – afternoon and midnight!  There have been many complaints about cars with loud music as well as loud parties. Loud music in cars has no excuse.  Go over that first speed bump in the front of the park and TURN YOUR MUSIC DOWN (and tell your guests to do the same so you don’t get into trouble) and keep it down until you leave the park.  Others may be trying to sleep – no matter the time of day or night – and very possibly they like different music.  Remember some people work during the day and sleep at night; others work at night and sleep during the day! Loud parties have also become an issue.  Move it inside and, once again, keep the noise...
