Plum Harbor HOA Board Members
Donna Friscia Merrill Sheedy Mike Rubino
SHUTTER REPLACEMENT: If you have lost one or both shutters, you can replace them at Home Depot. The produce is Builders Edge 15' x 55' raised panel vinyl exterior shutter. They come in pairs and the are $49.98 on the website with free shipping.
The HOA is planning on painting this coming winter/spring season so if you have to replace your shutters with white ones, we will paint them when the building is done.
FENCE REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT: If your fence was blown over in the storm and you have not scheduled a repair yet, please stand the panels up so the lawns can be cut. Please make the repairs asap. If you are going to replace your fence, please remember you must fill out an ACC form, which you can find on the Document page, and submit it for approval. Remember we no longer approve wooden fences. The only fence type that we are approving are 4' green chain link fences or white solid panel vinyl fences.
SPEED HUMPS: After a lengthy discussion between the board and homeowners who attended the meeting, it was decided that we will install speed humps on Santa Rosa Dr., S. Golden Beauty, E. Plum Harbor Way and Plum Isle Way. We will gauge how well they are working to evaluate if we need to install on other streets. For your guidance this will not affect the monthly maintenance.
FLOOD INSURANCE: Again, after lengthy discussion between the board and homeowners who attended the meeting, it was decided that Plum Harbor HOA will purchase $5M coverage of flood insurance. $5M is a fraction of the value of the buildings, but based on the cost, the frequency of flooding, the FEMA flood zone map and budget, it was decided that some was better than none and it is a good value for the premium. This purchase will not affect the monthly maintenance.
Flood insurance covers rising water. It does not cover flooding from named wind storms (that is covered under a different policy). The flood policy covers the same as the other insurance policy, outside in - up to and including the dry wall. Coverage beyond that is the homeowner's responsibility.
Landscape and Lawn Service Schedule
Trimming will be done on Sept. 7, 14, 21 and 29. Trimming on Sept. 20 Please make sure your holiday decorations have been removed from your shrubs. Neither the association nor the landscaper will be responsible for damages to items left on or around the shrubs or lawns.
Please make sure your gates are unlocked during the scheduled maintenance and that any lawn ornaments or lighting is removed. Neither the maintenance company nor the association is responsible for damage to lawn ornaments or lighting that is not removed..
2017 Harbor Projects
Street Paving - we have engaged a company to resurface the Plum Harbor streets. We are waiting for a permit from the City. When the project gets underway we will post the dates and street progress. COMPLETED
Tree Trimming - Both the Palms and the Hardwoods are scheduled to be trimmed in April. A second full or partial trimming of the Palms may be done in September as necessary. Palm fronds that are hitting the roofs will be trimmed in between cuttings to preserve the roof integrity. Please call the Property Manager if you have a frond hitting your roof. COMPLETED
Mailboxes - We are replacing both banks of mailboxes by the lake. We are painting the mailboxes by the small pool. COMPLETED
Landscaping - Some of the beds have overgrown in size due to trimming and edging over the years. We intend to resize them back to where they used to be and sod where they have been over trimmed. COMPLETED
Speed Humps - Due to speeding on the Plum Harbor streets the board is considering adding speed humps to regulate traffic speed. We will discuss the locations at the June meeting. If you want to contribute to the conversation, please attend the meeting.
This list will be updated throughout the year as we finish projects and add new ones. Stay tuned
