Welcome Back to The Vines
It's been a long, wet, hot summer. Hopefully by the time you read this we'll be experiencing, what many feel, is the best months to be here in SWFL.
Upon your return you'll notice the trees and ficus hedge have been trimmed, the colors around the front entry have begun to glow and Ron is back in the gate house. While we experienced a lightening strike to the cameras and bar code reader at the front entry; the parts are ordered and should be installed by the end of this month.

Clean Machine Car Wash update
At our latest meeting with the developer we learned that they hope to break ground at the end of this year and look to open in August 2022. We have completed a joint Access and Maintenance agreement which will assure our privacy, noise reduction, hours of operation, light pollution reduction, etc. A temporary sign was posted on the property which was not approved by the Village Community Development office. It was removed. An approved sign will be erected shortly.

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 !
