Front Gate Security

Cameras and Transition to the Fob System

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:

  • The codes currently in use will remain in our system until residents pick up their fobs from the Office. All fobs are available in the office and there are two for each unit.  Those codes will remain active while residents “test out” the fobs, but the codes will be deleted on the Monday following the day you pick up your fob.  There after, your access will only be via a fob, a transmitter or through the phone directory (see below).

  • We have had some owners request to have their “home watch person”, "tenant” or other person to pick up their fobs.  The reason for this new system is to increase the security around the property.  Click here for a form that must be completed by the owner prior to us providing a fob to a person other than the owner.  We will only provide ONE fob to this person.  The owner MUST pick up the other fob. 

  • Residents who have used one of a handful of generic codes given by the previous management have been assigned temporary codes until they can pick up their fobs. These temporary codes will be deleted once the fobs are picked up as described above.

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:

  • When you or your guest are at the gate open the Directory.
  • Using the up or down arrow keys, scroll to your last name.  Note that you can make this faster by using the arrow keys to scroll to the first letter of the last name before looking for the name. 
  • Push the green arrow.
  • When your phone rings (it will display the number 941-697-0693), answer your phone. 
  • Ask who it is.  If it is someone you are expecting, press 9.
  • The gate will open.

If you have any questions please contact Cassandra Wickson at 941-697-6595.

Revised Rules & Regulations Adopted


The Board of Directors of the Community Association adopted revised Rules & Regulations at its meeting on October 22, 2019.  The revisions, which affect only Section VI of the Rules and Regulations, clarified the requirements and procedures for owners who wish to rent their units.

Please review the new Rules & Regulations if you rent your unit.  Any questions about these new rules and procedures should be directed to Casey Management.

While it may take a while to fully implement the process, it is the Board's intention that all owners will follow these  rules and regulations and that they will be uniformly enforced.

Changes to Reserve Type


Cape Haze Condominium Associations currently use the Component method for reserves.  In this method specific amounts are set aside for specific reserve needs (e.g. the roof, building painting).  With this method, if other reserve funding needs arise, the Association cannot use these specifically allocated funds unless there is a membership vote.

The Association may change to a Pooled method for reserves where we still calculate reserves based on specific needs, but where funds in the pool may be used as needed.

The Community Association already operates on the pooled reserve method.

The Boards of the Condominium Associations are recommending members approve a change from the component to the pooled method at the annual meetings in November 2019.

Video Conferencing Replaces Call-In


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.

Communications Survey


The Communications Committee surveyed owners regarding TV and internet services.  Based on responses from about 1/3rd of our owners, the Communications Committee is preparing recommendations for consideration by the Board at its meeting on 22 October 2019. 

If you have not yet participated in the survey and would like your information included prior to final recommendations to the Board, please go to the survey by clicking below.  You may email your responses to any member of the Communications Committee.

Please click HERE for the Communications survey.

Concept Plan for Undeveloped Land


The Chair of our Strategic Planning Committee, who has a background in landscape architecture, land planning and development, volunteered to create a drawing to illustrate a development concept for the building lots we acquired last year.  The plan shown above (and downloadable as a PDF by clicking below) is only a concept – one idea of what development of that land could look like.  This idea tries to incorporate as many as possible of the desires/uses expressed in the Owner Survey conducted last spring, informal discussions with owners, and comments received at the three Owner Forums the Strategic Planning Committee conducted at that time.  You will see primary uses include natural preserve and trail areas, new residential use (townhomes with parking, pool, ‘rec center’), and additional garages/storage facilities. 


The Committee has not explored ownership structure, legal issues, timing, financial matters, etc., beyond the general consensus that a professional developer should develop and construct the major components of this or any other plan, i.e., the townhome component.  Your thoughts and comments are invited.  Again, please remember the sketch’s only purpose is to stimulate owner involvement in the process.  Please email your comments to:  Thanks in advance!

Grounds Improvements


Our Artistree Crew

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.
