Hello Neighbors!
Summer is a week away and our neighborhood is looking great! In preparation for the season much work has been done at the pool:  all the old furniture has been replaced with new commercial grade weather resistant loungers,chairs, and side tables and 2 plastic coated steel tables with umbrellas will be arriving any day. The pool deck was recently resurfaced with new grit to prevent slippage, the rusted pool pump cover has been replaced, the pool house has been pressure washed and we are in the process of addressing some drainage issues there.

The drains in the neighborhood also require periodic inspection and clean out paid for by the HOA to prevent flooding and we are presently taking care of that as well.
I need to address our sidewalk issue: Many of our sidewalks do not meet ADA standards which is 1/4" and many are just blatant trip hazards. Your board has done their due diligence to research and address this matter to determine responsibility and liability for these trip hazards. We have consulted with the county and their attorney as well as our own attorney. We are soliciting estimates to repair the sidewalks but NO DECISIONS HAVE BEEN MADE.

This is not a decision we will take lightly due to the heavy cost involved but we must weigh the liability and safety of our residents. If we move forward it will be costly, and that alone may prevent us from taking action. If you would like to weigh in on this or any other topic, please attend our monthly meeting, next scheduled for July 23rd, 6:30pm at the community pool. These are non-contentious meetings with a format and business to be conducted where all homeowners are given the opportunity to speak. In the interest of time your comments will be welcomed at the end and limited to 3 minutes per resident. Remember, YOU ARE THE HOA! We are volunteers representing you and the best interests of our community.
Calling all pet lovers!! Our next social event will be the patriotic pet parade held in the field beside the pool on July 13th, exact time TBD. Signage will be posted. Bring your pet in patriotic duds (or not) and come enjoy some fun. There will be pet treats and people treats!!!! You do not need a pet to attend and you do not have to dress your pet to attend, it would just be more fun if you do!!

Finally, the June Curb Appeal Award has been awarded to Keith and Maryann Bowe, 24239 Painter Dr. Please drive by and take a look at
all their hard work, it truly is a standout!!

Hello Neighbors!
Spring has sprung here in Twin Lakes and your board is beginning the process of taking bids for renovations and upgrades at the pool area. We are hoping to build a deck area extending toward the lake with a dock for fishing and boat launch. If you know a reputable and licensed contractor to recommend for this project please forward those to West Coast Management ASAP. 

Other ideas the board is discussing are: street sweepers to remove the piles of dead leaves and sand in the gutters and streets, license plate recognition cameras at the entrance to further prevent, detect, and deter wrong-doers in our community. It is no secret that Pasco county and our neighborhood as well as surrounding neighborhoods have some problems with car theft and car burglary, so please folks, LOCK YOUR DOORS! Yet another reason to keep shrubs and landscaping trimmed and at a minimum. THINK SAFETY!

We have also ordered a new cover for the pool pump as the current one is very old, rusted, and no longer does the job.
The St. Patrick's Day party at the pool was a lot of fun! The DJ was amazing and the kids enjoyed the Irish trivia. Party favors were given out and green beads and corned beef sandwiches were enjoyed by all!

Sorry if you missed the crime prevention meeting presented at the pool by Deputy Ron Bizetto (former TL resident), it was a very informative talk! Don't forget: If you see something, say something! Don't be afraid to call 911 if you are scared or afraid and let them know! or even the non-emergency line if its just something odd. Better safe than sorry!
This is never a pleasant thing to bring up, however, at the urging of our residents I must remind you that if you have received more than 3 violation letters for the same offense, the board has the right to cure the problem and bill the Homeowner via a lien on the property. This is never a process that any of us wish to pursue, but rather a direct result of living in a deed-restricted community. Govern yourself accordingly to avoid any such action.
As always, if you have any ideas, suggestions, contributions, or complaints, :(  let us know, we want to hear it. Next BOD meeting May, 2, 7pm, Publix on Collier Pkwy.

Hello Neighbors!
Hoping to see you all Saturday March 16th from 12-4pm for the St. Patrick's Day Pool Party! We will have Irish trivia with prizes, corned beef, beads and fun, so you havegot to come!!! and btw, if you have not picked up your pool FOB, they will be available at the party.

Also wanted to make you aware that we have had more vandalism at the pool. We have the culprit on camera and charges are pending but if you plan to use the playground please be aware that the back fence is mutilated. We are hoping our insurance will cover the damage but the repair will not take place until March 19th.

While on the subject of vandals, we have had numerous car break-ins and even car theft here in our community, so I have invited Deputy Ron Bizetto to come talk with us about crime prevention and a neighborhood watch program. He will be speaking at the pool on Tuesday March 26th at 630pm. Really hope for a large attendance so we can work together to keep our community safe!
Speaking of safety, please remember to watch your speed while driving through our community! We are all in a hurry these days but our kids and pedestrians need to feel safe here, not to mention the wildlife!
We have appointed a by-laws committee and they have begun the laborious task of revising our outdated Covenents. This is not a short process, but one that will require a vote of the membership, so be on the lookout for that date in the future, most likely at the annual meeting.
Don't forget curb appeal awards begin again next month, sooooo ... READY, SET, KILL WEEDS!!!!

Yours Truly,
Karen Mason, HOA President

Hello Neighbors!
Your new board has been busy getting organized for the new year ahead and we have some fun things to share. First is our upcoming social calendar consisting of:

1. St. Patrick's Day Pool Party (March 16)
2. Patriotic Dog Parade 
3. September Annual Picnic
4. October Annual Yard Sale
5. Holiday Wine and Cheese Share (for adults only).
Plus Halloween and Christmas decorating contests. 

Exact dates to be determined so check back for updates! The St. Patrick's Day pool party will be an opportunity to meet your new board to share ideas for the community and also any concerns you may have. We would also like your input on some of our goals for the year and how you would ask us to prioritize our ideas. Some of those ideas include: remodeling the clubhouse and restrooms, adding a boardwalk/dock/picnic area at the lake, a gated entrance, a neighborhood watch, among many other things!
Your board has acknowledged that keeping up lawns becomes especially difficult during the winter months so we have made the decision to suspend the curb appeal award through the months of Dec-March. Soooo get ready for April everybody!! BTW, if you are having medical issues that prevent you from being able to maintain the normal upkeep on your lawn, please reach out to West Coast Management or a board member to see if we can help.
Yours Truly,
Karen Mason, HOA President
