Stop Sign at the Railroad Tracks

Based upon input from the Rail to Trail Committee and a review of our easement with the railroad it was decided that the stop sign must stay. We ask that all residents obey the sign and come to a complete stop.

Non Resident Barcode Reminder

Non-resident barcodes will expire on December 1, but may be renewed anytime after November 1. To renew your barcode please present your driver's license plus vehicle registration along with a check in the amount of $50 payable to Vine Community Association to security at the main gate. Security will verify ECC membership using a list provided by the ECC. Barcodes are issued between 8 and 2 Monday through Saturday.

Review Your Insurance for Loss Assessment

Did you know that your Homeowner's Insurance may reimburse you for storm damaged expenses assessed by your Homeowners or Condo association? Condo policies in Florida are required provide a minimum of $2,000 of coverage with a maximum deductible of $250. Most Homeowner's policies have coverage as well. Check your policy for the amount of your Loss Assessment Coverage. This coverage can be increased for a small sum to cover future Loss Assessments.

Have You Noticed Something Amiss?

If you see something that needs to be addressed; a light that is out, the fountain isn't functioning, a tree has died, or any other maintenance issue that needs attention, please send an email to Be sure to include the community name and specifics such as the nearest house number. Pegasus will contact the appropriate vendor. If you contact a Board member first they must then forward your issue to Pegasus, delaying response time.

Exterior Paint Color Palette

In an effort to keep The Vines looking fresh and current, the ARC worked with Sherwin Williams to develop a color palette for home exteriors on Vintage Trace. This palette offers modern neutrals replacing the heavy Tuscan golds and browns and pastel pink, blue and green. Each palette offers a body color, 2 trim and 2 front door choices. Additional shades of white are listed in the introductions letter. For more details please select the links below or the Documents page on the VCA website.

Please note that an ARC form and prior approval also be obtained before painting begins! Failure to do so could result in a fine.
