POSTED 3/21/2020
Yesterday we had an emergency meeting to discuss what steps we are taking because of the virus. The results are as follows:

1. The ice machine will be kept locked to keep contractors and other unauthorized users out. Residents will need to use the common use key to enter the building. Please lock the door as you exit. 
2. The clubhouse will remain open but residents are encouraged to keep social distance. (6 feet) 
3. The swimming pools and hot tubs will remain open; however, all furniture will be removed. 
4. Non essential  contractor work in the park is forbidden. Residents are responsible to notify contractors the work must be delayed till further notice. 
5. Work that requires IMMEDIATE ACTION such as AC repairs and plumbing issues, etc. can continue.
6. Outside visitors in to the park are strongly discouraged. Home health care visits can continue as well as house watchers who are checking on your property. 
7. NO real estate open houses are allowed till further notice. 
8. Trash pickup will be on Mondays, and Fridays only. Recycle will continue on Thursdays. If able, residents are encouraged to take their trash to the back. 

Other actions may become necessary as guidelines are given by Collier County and State mandates from the governor's office. 

Thank you for your assistance in this trying time.
