The first of our major summer projects is underway. Approved by the Community Association Board at the recommendation of our Safety and Security Committee, we have installed front gate security cameras and are switching from the 4-digit codes we have used for years to fobs. The cameras and fob reader have been installed at the front gate. We have tested the system and it is working very well.
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. We will keep you updated as we move through this new system.
The transition process to the fobs will proceed this way:
Using the screen at the Gate. The photograph to the right is what the screen at the gate looks like. Until you get your fob, you need to push HOME key, enter your four digit CODE and then press the GREEN ARROW. This will allow you to gain access as you have been doing.
Using the Directory. Everyone, but especially visitors, will be able to look up residents using a directory at the gate. This is not quite ready yet, but as soon as this part of our system is up and running (we hope by the 25thof May) we will provide you with detailed instructions about how to use it.
Our progress with the directory so far: We have uploaded the directory with the owner last name and phone number. For now, the default for the first name is MR. This will be shortly changed to your first initials. Calls from your guest or visitor from the front gate will come across your caller ID as 941-697-0693. To open the gate for your guest/visitor, (1) answer the phone and (2) press “9” on your phone. The gate will open and your guest will be able to enter.
An instructional video is in preparation to assist with the use of the new system and will be posted as soon as it is available. If you have any questions please contact Trish Carver at 941-697-6595.
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.
Please click HERE to download the survey.
The office is operating under summer hours, 9 AM to 2 PM Monday through Friday.
The office will be closed on May 27th for Memorial Day.
The Communications Committee is conducting surveys of owners. The committee has received responses from about 1/3rd of our owners. Communications is gathering information to help in our television/internet provider (currently Comcast) contract negotiations.
Please click HERE for the Communications survey.
The Community Association and the three Condominium Associations have selected the firm of Wells and Olah to represent them as counsel in matters of Association law.
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 will be able to present that question to the Board.
The use of the Zoom system via a computer will require owners to download and install a Zoom program to their computers.
As before, published agendas and the web site will contain instructions to connect to the Board meetings.
The Pool will be closed June 3-6 for annual maintenance and repair.
All guests and contractors must park in OPEN parking spaces. Open spaces are those not under blue canopies. There is no parking in the cul-de-sacs. Those using handicapped parking spaces should be familiar with Florida Statute 316.1955 (click the button below to review a copy). Misuse of handicapped parking spaces will be enforced by the Charlotte County Sheriff. Further parking information may be found in the Rules and Regulations.
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.
