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.

Concept Plan for Undeveloped Land

image37

The Board reaffirmed at its meeting on 18 February 2020 that no committed decision has been made about our undeveloped land. 

Nonetheless, based on recommendations from the Strategic Planning Committee, the Board is seeking to determine if there is any interest by developers to further develop the land.


The Chair of our Strategic Planning Committee created  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, three Owner Forums and a survey about what to do with our land included participation by only 23% of owners; 77% were silent!  

 

 Owner discussion is invited.

Grounds Improvements

GOALS FOR 2019

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.
