7/23/19 Message from the President:
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.
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.
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!!

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
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!
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
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
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

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.
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.
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!!!!

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.
Hope to see you MARCH 16TH FOR OUR ST. PATRICK'S DAY POOL PARTY AND BOARD MEET-N-GREET!!
