SPCSA owners should be aware that payments for 2020 SPCSA assessments may be affected by any outstanding 2019 payment delinquencies at year-end. Homeowners who have not paid amounts due for late fees, interest or other charges will find their balance deducted from initial 2020 Dues payments, resulting in a “short” payment in January, 2020.
***To avoid extra charges in the New Year, please settle any outstanding payment balances before year end, or include the owed amount with your first 2020 remittance. If you have questions please contact Marlo Sanders, Sentry Management using the contact information on SPCSA’s home page. Thank you.
SPCSA held its 2019 Annual Membership Meeting on November 12th at the Episcopal Church on East Lake Brantley Drive. The meeting was attended by about 40 residents. The Board reviewed 2019 accomplishments, overall financial position and the status of key community issues. Participants asked a variety of questions on topics including:
SPCSA’s Finances – the association’s financial status remained solid in 2019 with maintenance spending on the 85-acre “Sabal Point Commons” property running close to projections. SPCSA will finish the year in an Expense over-run situation due to Legal fees for a covenants enforcement trial which the association won in late July. Next year’s Annual association dues will increase by ~1.7% over 2018, or $10/year for single-family homeowners.
Village on the Green (VOG) Modernization and Expansion Plan – Lifespace Communities, VOG’s parent company, has begun Phase One of their $50 million modernization and facilities expansion plan. While the site excavation and grading work are generating some daytime noise and dust, nearby neighbors are showing patience and we all look forward to seeing construction progress in the New Year.
“Florida Friendly Landscaping” – residents expressed interest in learning to update their yards with “Florida Friendly” grasses, landscape plants, mulched beds and irrigation adjustments. It was noted that the University of Florida, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF – IFAS) has a local Extension Office near the Seminole County Office complex on Highway 17-92, which offers free seminars, information, publications and assistance to homeowners who want to reduce environmental impacts, lawncare expenses and conserve water. For more information visit their website: http://sfyl.ifas.ufl.edu/ . As a reminder, all major landscape modifications or additions should be planned in advance and submitted for Architectural Review and Approval.
Special Appreciation – was extended to Glen Winter and the Episcopal Church for hosting the meeting, and to Marlo Sanders who supports SPCSA as Sentry’s Community Association Manager.
Election of Directors – the election for Board of Directors positions was conducted with election of Gerry Keane, Joe St. Pierre and Scottie Wood to 3-year terms starting in January. Thank you SPCSA voters and congratulations Gerry, Joe and Scottie!
