Message from our Board

Link to November newsletter


Along with the seasonal transition from Fall to Winter (and hopefully the end of the hurricane season), Coral Trace is also anticipating exciting changes ahead for the coming months as well.  Your new board of directors was elected at the November 17 Annual Homeowners’ Meeting and will hold their first meeting on Monday, November 26th.


Over the past year extensive landscaping projects, new pool tile and furniture, irrigation and lighting projects have been completed. Mulch applications are finishing up this week and flowers were installed at the front entrance on November 21. Once everyone’s pressure cleaning and painting is completed, Coral Trace will be looking great for the holidays and New Year!


Each HOA board has its own set of unique challenges and opportunities to serve and contribute to leaving their community a little better than before. Amid several unexpected obstacles this year, including the unanticipated change in property managers that required everyone’s teamwork to keep the community operations going, many important goals were accomplished. We are deeply grateful to our new property manager, James McKendry, for helping us to keep the ship afloat on a volunteer basis during an extended period of uncertainty and later for his enthusiastic, energetic assumption of his role once

hired. Coral Trace is now positioned to move forward with new opportunities and plans for the future, armed with the foundations laid over past years along with the forthcoming reserve study report to guide the responsible allocation of our resources for addressing the repairs and maintenance of our community.


Among the many things we have to be grateful for during this time of thanksgiving and holiday spirit are the committed, caring members of our 2019 board who have stepped up to serve on your behalf. Our new board is a talented crew of both long term and recent homeowners who bring diverse experience and insights to their new roles. Support them, thank them and respect them for they will be dedicating many hours of their personal time to serve as the caretakers of your community and its future.


Please mark your calendar for the next board meeting on Monday, November 26 at 7:00 p.m. in the Clubhouse to come and meet your 2019 board of directors. As always, we hope to see YOU there!


Wishing You Safe and Happy Holidays,

Your 2018 Coral Trace HOA Board of Directors

From the Coral Trace COP (Citizens Observer Patrol) - John Mitchell


Our (Citizens on Patrol) COPs are again providing security patrols in our Delray Beach patrol cars, and there are openings for those who want to help the community. We need more community involvement… interested residents are invited to join. We have made a meaningful impact in lowering the crime rate in our community with this effort, and will do better with even more coverage.

There are a few things that our residents can do to help:

1.  KEEP YOUR OUTSIDE LIGHTS ON AT NIGHT. That will help our COPs who patrol after dark see your home’s front and side better, and deter criminals.

2.  LOCK YOUR CARS and KEEP GARAGE DOORS CLOSED and LOCKED. This way your belongings will not walk away.

3. DO NOT PARK ON THE STREETS. Many residents park on the streets, especially at night which is against our community's rules. Doing this impedes the emergency vehicles that respond to calls for help. Every unit has room for 3 cars — a garage and a 2 car driveway. Use these spaces, not the streets. Request that your service personnel (maid, pest control, etc.) use your driveway or guest spots.

4.  DO NOT use GUEST parking spaces yourself.

5. OBEY the STOP SIGNS! There are near misses occurring frequently because of vehicles not stopping.

6. Do not obstruct the sidewalks with anything, especially your vehicles. The police will ticket cars that block the sidewalk.

7. Be advised that the Delray Beach Police Department are issuing tickets for these traffic infractions.
