VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

We need your help to continue building a stronger neighborhood. The Board of Director’s goal is to strengthen the neighborhood’s HOA with an army of volunteers. We need more involvement.

Over the next 5 years, it is estimated that over 1,000 new residences will be built within a five mile radius of TVO. We must maintain our reputation as a great community. This starts with community involvement and activities. I think we have some clear advantages over the newer subdivisions, but we must show it and promote it. Our sense of community will be a major selling point to new buyers.

Our efforts should also focus on people, like me, that have committed to raising their families here. There are numerous topics to explore but we do not have the resources. Some areas of interest are: 1) Improving street lights. 2) Improving pedestrian safety in the community (speeding). 3) Improving walking paths. 4) Replacing street signs.5) Modernizing our Bylaws. 6) Recreational/playground space.

We need volunteers to explore these opportunities. Consider volunteering to strengthen your neighborhood. Contact a BOD member to learn more.

MARCH 2015 – TVO I MEETING

TVO’s March meeting went very well. We had about 25 to 30 people including the five member Board of Directors. This represented 21% of eligible voters. We were able to vote on the 2015 budget, activities for the summer (egg hunt, yard sale, picnic). The Garden Club gave a summary of their activities. The Volleyball Club reported they raised $1400 for Operation Smile at their annual tournament.

One of our neighborhood Girl Scouts presented and asked for our support as she talks with the County to improve pedestrian safety at the RT40/Hwy 144/Pebble Beach Intersection more. Of course , we are willing to help her 100%.

The unofficial meeting minutes will be available in the next 30 days.

SPEEDING ISSUE

People driving too fast is still an issue for our community. We were unsuccessful in getting the County to put up additional stop signs along Pebble Beach and Boca Raton Dr. HCPD suggested that start educating our neighbors. SLOW DOWN. Please SLOW DOWN. The weather is changing and the kids will be outside again. The speed limit is 25 MPH throughout the neighborhood. Watch out for the kids! Be safe.

VOTING MEMBERSHIPS ARE DUE

Our current 2015 voting participation is 44%, which equates to 140 of the 316 homes. Our goal is to add at least 60 more homes over the next two months. REMINDER: As a resident of TVO I, your homeownership make you a member of the community HOA. Your annual dues gives you voting privileges on any neighborhood issues presented for a vote at the meeting. Please submit your invoice ASAP. Need an invoice, let me know.

TREE TRIMMERS ARE ON LAST STREET!

Through rain and snow, the tree trimmers are making their way through Congressional Court. I believe that is the last street in the neighborhood.
