Hello neighbors!

 

Now that Summer has ended and Autumn has officially begun - at least according to the calendar - Coral Trace is heading into a very active Fall season with many changes planned or already underway!

A new property manager, James McKendry, LCAM (see below), was appointed at the last board meeting. James was instrumental in stepping in on an interim basis to navigate the many challenges of keeping Coral Trace going after the unexpected health concerns of our regular manager, Bob Loperfido. Thankfully, Bob is progressing well, but will not be returning due to the extended nature of his situation. However, despite this, he has continued his caring commitment to our community throughout his ordeal and has been regularly communicating with the board and James to guide us through this transition period.

Now here are the latest highlights from the past few weeks and for the months ahead:

  

 Parking and Pets – There are still some owners or guests parking on the grass and/or in the streets. Please avoid a violation notice and ask your guests to park either in your driveway or in the guest lot. Your dogs must be on a leash at ALL times and cleaned up afterwards. This includes the lake area where a number of dogs are being allowed to run loose. Please leash your dog any time it is outside the house and clean up after any business. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

 

 Roof/Driveway/Walkway Pressure Cleaning AND Fence Pressure Cleaning/Repair/Painting The annual homeowner fence, roof, driveway and walkway pressure cleaning per HOA rules and regulations is scheduled to begin October 1 with a completion date requirement of October 31. An official letter is on its way, but you should make plans now to get your cleaning scheduled. *As a helpful tip, some owners meet with their unit neighbors and coordinate for the company to clean all the unit roofs at the same time so that everyone’s roof in the unit looks nice and clean at the same time. A-Plus Pressure Cleaning and Painting has performed this service for our association’s common areas as well as for individual homeowners with positive results for a number of years, however you are free to select the vendor of your choice as long as they complete it by October 31.*Any fences needing repair and/or painting must also be addressed at this time per our governing documents.

 Common Areas/Sidewalk Pressure Cleaning/Mulch – In November new mulch will be installed throughout and the common areas including the community sidewalks, island curbs, clubhouse and pool area will be cleaned by the association on 11/4 and 11/15 respectively.

 

 Lighting Project – The equipment for the community entrance and pool lighting installation has been ordered by the vendor and will be scheduled for installation as soon as it arrives.

 

 Pool and Spa Signs – As the final phase of our pool/spa renovation, new signs have been ordered that will now reflect the “No Smoking” policy adopted this year among other updates.

 

 Clubhouse and Fitness Center – The clubhouse has been scheduled for a deep clean this month and repairs to fitness center equipment were performed. Clubhouse rentals will remain at $150, however the required deposit was approved for an increase to $300 at the board meeting. *Deposits are returned once the facility has been cleaned and returned to regular order.

 

 Palm Seed Pods – will be trimmed again during the first week of October.

 

 2019 Budget  – The proposed budget will be presented to the board at the October 15 meeting.

 

 Annual Homeowners’ Meeting – is scheduled for Saturday, November 17 at 1:00 p.m. in the clubhouse.

 

It’s important to recognize that all of these projects are coordinated by volunteer board members and fellow homeowners who care about our community – that’s how homeowner associations work -  so we always appreciate the positive feedback received by so many of you as we work to make Coral Trace a wonderful place to live. Together with everyone’s support, we can create a safe, attractive and harmonious community based on caring, respect and civility for all!

 

Please mark your calendar to attend the next monthly board meeting  on October 15 at 7:00 pm and the Annual Homeowners’ Meeting scheduled for Saturday, November 17 at 1:00 p.m. in the clubhouse.

 

Hope to see YOU there!

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.
