We have installed front gate security cameras and are actively providing access fobs to owners to replace the previously used gate codes. In addition to the fobs, owners may purchase transmitters to use with the new gate access system (the old transmitters will not work for the front gate, although they will still work for garages).
Our intent is to make this transition smooth for everyone. We have begun our implementation in a way that we think should prevent anyone from being locked out”, but we have also prepared to handle what we hope will be only a few problems any residents may have.
The transition process to the fobs will proceed this way:
USING THE DIRECTORY. Please Click the Image (above right) for additional pictures of the general steps described below. The gate directory is up and running as of 1 June 2019. It is used as follows:

The governing documents of the Condominium Associations, modified in 2017 and approved by Owners by April of 2018, have now been, or are being recorded and govern the Condominium Associations.
The changes to these documents that most impact owners involve unit rentals. If owners have questions about rentals under these amended documents, please direct them to your Condominium Boards.

All condominium Owners are invited to complete the Strategic Planning Survey. The Strategic Planning Committee would appreciate receiving the surveys from all owners. Please complete yours if you have not already done so. They may be mailed, brought to the office in person or scanned and sent by email to Trish Carver at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Zoom video conferencing is being used by all Cape Haze Resort boards to connect board members and allow remote owner participation in meetings. Owners can join the meetings either through their computers or by telephone as before.
Those calling in by telephone will not have the ability to speak. Those connecting by a computer can use the "chat" function to indicate that they have a question and will be able to present that question to the Board.
The Communications Committee is conducting surveys of owners. The committee has received responses from about 1/3rd of our owners. Communications isnow analyzing the information to help in our television/internet provider (currently Comcast) contract negotiations.

The Grounds Committee's primary goal for 2019 was to enhance prominent focal areas on Cape Haze Resort's property.
In January with the approval of the board, we removed worn-out plastic planters around the pool area and replaced them with bright aqua and blue ceramic pots filling with colorful plants. A diseased Foxtail palm tree was removed and replaced with a Terracotta urn filled with cascading flowers. The entrance to the pool area planters now have brilliant yellow Hibiscus plants. Spent palms plants outside the clubhouse were replaced with hardy philodendron called "Hope". Whenever possible existing plants were saved and relocated.
February's project was to enhance the two entrance monument walls, a combination of red Hibiscus and dwarf red Ixoras were planted, these should flourish in the full sun and be a cheerful welcome to all entering Cape Haze Resort.
Presently the committee has recommended enhancement of the 17 driveway islands facing each of the six condo buildings. Also recommended is adding a Weeping Bottlebrush tree along with Hibiscus shrubs to the central island by the clubhouse.
Future plans include mulching, refurbishing footpaths, adding shrubs and replacing removed trees on our beautiful C.H.R. grounds.
Roofs were not looking pretty (at least from a drone view). Time for a cleaning!
Thanks to Jim Powell for drone and landscaping photos on this page.
Much better after cleaning and less debris to fall on those below.

"Cleaning" Rick has pressure washed and is just finishing the sealing of the timbers at the volleyball court. Scott is having him undertake one smaller project every week.
There is a problem with water intrusion in the clubhouse that requires repair. This has been going on for some time and has resulted in mold and rotting by the windows. Repairs are currently underway as of early June 2019.
CAPE HAZE DIRECTORY - Work in Progress
Your communications committee is preparing a directory of owners and renters. It is intended for use by the community and will not be published in any form that is publicly available.
Owners and renters are encouraged to download and complete the contact and permission form and drop it off at the office.
At its meeting on July 16, 2019, the Community Association Board doped a draft rental policy and two new rental forms that are being sent to owners for their comments.
Owners who rent their units are encouraged to read the draft and send comments to Bridget Spence (BSpence@caseymanagement.com).
The Board will consider owner comments in the development of a final policy.
The Articles, Declarations and Bylaws. adopted by the three Condominium Associations in early 2018 are now being recorded with Charlotte County. The Boards had thought that there was a 1-year time limit on recording, but we subsequently learned that is not the case.
Condominium Association documents will be posted as soon as they are recorded and additional information particularly applying to unit rentals will be provided at the July 16, 2019 Board meetings.
Community Association governing documents may be viewed by clicking below.
Inquiries about renting units at Cape Haze are being received through the "Contact Us" section of the web site. These inquiries are being passed along to our resort management team.
Turn Out the Lights
If you are the last person to leave a common area, please remember to turn off lights, TVs and any other electrically operated "thing" to save your Association electrical costs.
Anyone wishing to report an issue that needs attention to our Management Team should use the Work Order forms provided in the office and downloadable on the web site.
The Resort opened in 2007 and consists of 144 one, 2 and 3 bedroom units with associated clubhouse, pool, tennis and pickle ball courts. In 2018 the unit owners bought the developer's remaining undeveloped land and development interests.
Unit owners elect board members to each of three independent condominium association boards. The condominium associations themselves are the members of the Community Association and elect its board.
