Hello Coral Trace,
A letter from the president for March 2019.
We have made some improvements to the community
in the first three months since the new board
took over in November:
northwest canal gate on the north side of the
property has been replaced.
fence on the west side preserve has been mended
from the damage of last year's hurricane winds.
western preserve has been cleared from the fence
and cut back from the yards by three feet.
have cleaned out the maintenance closet and shed
from all the accumulated clutter over eighteen
years as well as building a new shelf to store
things in the shed.
eastern and southern concrete walls have been
pressure cleaned and will be painted next week
since we haven't had it painted since the
inception of the community.
office was a disaster! No order, no filing
system in place, and incomplete files for each
unit. The office was cleaned out, files archived
at Seacrest, and a new filing system put in
place so we can get to the matter of taking care
of our unit owners in a timely manner.
have replaced two irrigation pumps and put
electrical surge protection on each. The surge
protection will save us thousands down the road
and only cost a few hundred dollars.
have put new electrical in the pool pump room
and a new pool light timer.
gym will be complete again next month with a new
treadmill. The ten- year-old treadmill finally
Landscaping is always a work in progress,
right? We are having sea pods trimmed this week,
and as I said before the western preserve is
done for this year. The irrigation electrical
system is complete and up and running
beautifully. We are having soil samples tested
in the community so we can determine if we have
a ph level problem or what we can do to get the
grass in better shape than we have seen in the
past. Weed and Feed is scheduled the end of
February for the second time since November.
Landscaping beds have been sprayed for weeds.
They are spraying turf pesticides again in
March. We have removed trees and replaced five
sidewalks that were trip hazards. There were
flowers placed in front of our CT sign a few
months ago and they really make the entrance
We have a new violations committee for Coral
Trace and plan to enforce it this year. We have
talked about it in the past to no avail. I have
been on the board several times in the past and
this necessary committee is finally taking
shape. We have been putting stickers on vehicles
that park in the street, at the clubhouse for
days in a row, or in front of hydrants. The
violators will be towed at the owner's expense.
We have had trouble with teens from the high
school trespassing and we advise that you call
the non-emergency number for the police at
(561) 243-7800 (emergency
911). Please do not confront them yourself. You
never know these days what kids will do.
We have had the police in Coral Trace several
times in the past few months. We have people
sleeping in cars that don't belong here, the
kids from the high school trespassing, and
people in the pool area that are not residents
sleeping on our lounge chairs. If you see this
again please call the police at
(561) 243-7800 (emergency
911). The police have been in the community
ticketing people that don't stop at stop signs
and are speeding. Please be careful of our
children and animals while driving in the
All in all the community looks good and we are
working to make it even better. The work orders
are being addressed in a timely manner.
If you have received a letter concerning your
roof, driveway and/or fence please adhere to the
rules and regulations. Thanks for your time.
Coral Trace President,
Please mark your calendar to attend the next
monthly board meeting on
March 18, 2019
7:00 pm in the clubhouse.
We hope to see YOU there!
Your Coral Trace HOA Board of Directors
