VCA Board Notes

The VCA Board meets regularly on the 4th Monday each month at 1:00 PM. The next board meeting is scheduled for Monday October 25th. Pegasus property mgt. will notify VCA owners about a week in advance of the location which may be in person or telephonically or virtual. At any time you are interested in serving on a VCA committee, please click the following link and submit the form to Pegasus Property Mgt. Committee Interest form.
If you have an item you'd like to put on the Board agenda, please contact your community representative. If you feel it's an item of general community interest, please communicate with president Jim Robinson.
Front entrance winter flowers will be planted in the next week.
Christmas lights are installed and additional decorations will be turned on the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Ficus hedge around the perimeter is doing beautifully due to constant spraying for white fly.
Mulch around the perimeter shrubs will be done the first of November. 
Thank you to everyone that keep their cars and golf carts off the Vintage Trace grass, they cause costly damage to the sprinkler heads.


 Thank you for your patience and understanding in our long wait for the Main Gate Barcode reader to be repaired. Like many other items right now, waiting for parts caused the delay. It has been replaced and is working. 
  As a reminder, you should always approach all gates at a safe speed so that you can stop should something fail to work correctly.  "3 mph" is still the recommendation when approaching any of our gates.
  Also, the Main Gate Barcode lane barrier arm is set to close after each vehicle. To be sure your barcode was correctly read you should wait until you see the barrier arm closing/closed before passing the barcode reader.  
 Lastly, remember there is a STOP SIGN on the other side of the barrier arm. You are required to stop at it as the intersection is a "3 way" stop.  You cannot see traffic coming from your left, and they cannot see you until you get to the stop sign. Safety is always first!
Clean Machine Car Wash update
A temporary (coming soon) sign is posted on the property which was been approved by the Village Community Development office. They plan to break ground in December and open Summer 2022.

See Something - Say Something!

As you know, we have an Off-Site Property manager. Pegasus may visit the property periodically for lots of reasons. But their eyes can not see everything. It is the responsibility of all of us to let us know when something doesn't seem just right. Whether it's a light out, a tattered flag, someone driving improperly,etc. Whether you see something in your community, on the perimeter road, the entry road, etc., we need your eyes to let us know what your concerns are. Do not hesitate to contact any of us on the Board or the property manager, via phone, or e-mail at any time.
If you see something, say something !
