December 2012 - Happy Holidays!

The Arbor Greene CDD Wishes You A Safe & Happy Holiday Season! We ask that all residents please be aware of an important change to the speed limits within Arbor Greene. As mentioned in previous issues of the AG newsletter, and further outlined on page 9 of this Newsletter, effective Thursday, December 6, the speed limit on single-lane, each direction, roads within Arbor Greene will be reduced to 25 MPH! Arbor Creek Drive, from Cross Creek to the Enclave/Estuary circle will be the only road in Arbor Greene to remain at 30 MPH. The CDD feels the safety of the residents of Arbor Greene is important! A slower speed limit may help alleviate the small mishaps we’ve seen in the community, and also keep our children, pets, bikers, walkers and joggers safer. Please make a conscious effort this holiday season to obey the new speed limits; thereby bringing a greater degree of safety to the community.

Community Activities Message from the Arbor Greene HOA

CDD BOARD of SUPERVISORS CHANGES

Happy Holidays from your HOA board!

January “super” inspection As everyone knows, Arbor Greene is a deed restricted community. There are certain maintenance and upkeep standards that are dictated by our covenants that apply to all homes in the community. The primary responsibility of the Homeowners Association is to insure covenant compliance by all residents. The key to effective covenant enforcement is consistency. We must insure that every address throughout the community is complying with the covenants in a similar way. The recent housing crisis delivered us a setback. With more than 50 foreclosed and abandoned homes in Arbor Greene, it became very difficult to deliver a consistent enforcement standard. For our regular readers of this space, you are aware that in 2012 the HOA has completely changed its approach. We are now abating homes that are not complying with our community’s covenants. We have effectively managed around our primary roadblock to consistent covenant enforcement. Now that we are able to deliver consistent covenant enforcement, we are going to conduct a “super” inspection in January. Every address in Arbor Greene will be inspected against all of our covenants, including yard condition, clean driveway, sidewalks, exterior paint, and other miscellaneous violations. We are going to return to the consistent covenant enforcement that you would expect from a deed restricted community. After January we will return to the monthly priority. This will allow us to keep Arbor Greene at a good level of maintenance while providing residents with a clear and transparent set of expectations.

The results are in and the Arbor Greene CDD is pleased to announce the election of their two newest board members: Michael S. Candella and Steve Eckhardt. Other members of the current Arbor Greene CDD Board of Supervisors include: Christine Nelson, Adam Tannenbaum and Toby Thomson The Board of Supervisors would like to thank it’s two retiring board members, John Brickley and Doresey Yawn, for the years of service and commitment they gave to the Arbor Greene Community. The new board held their meeting on Tuesday, November 20th and new officers were selected; results will appear in next month’s newsletter. The CDD Board meets monthly (as noted on page 1 of the newsletter) and invites the community to join them.

The Arbor Greene Book Club

All residents are welcome to attend meetings. If you wish to dispute a violation, you can contact Mark Eary at Greenacre or attend and address the Board. We look forward to returning Arbor Greene to a more consistent level of covenant enforcement from the Homeowners Association.

The Arbor Greene Book Club will meet on December 3rd, at 7pm, in the Gathering Room to discuss: Born to Die-The Montauk Murders, by local author, Lois Lewandowski.

All planned changes to the exterior of your home must be submitted to the Design Review Board (DRB) via an Alteration Application. And, DRB approval must be obtained before any work is begun. All Arbor Greene HOA documents and forms can be found on -line at :www.greenacreproperties.com. Click the “Resident Login” link at the top of the page to sign in. It is each homeowners responsibility to know what is covered in the Declaration of Covenants (Deed Restrictions) and Design Review Board Standards.

Please contact Diane Wheeler for more information about the Arbor Greene Book Club at: 994-9262

New 25 MPH Speed Limit As referenced on page 1, the following are recommendation from the City of Tampa’s Transportation Division: “…Based on a field review of existing speed limit sign placement, the number and distribution of the individual villages (inclusive of single family homes, condos and towns homes), the surface road network, its cross section(s) and its interconnectivity, the observed pedestrian and bicycle use/demand as well as existing crosswalks at several intersections within the Arbor Greene Community, we recommend and support the following: -Arbor Greene Dr between Cross Creek Blvd and Estuary Dr remain posted as 30 mph speed zone -Arbor Wind Dr between Arbor Greene Dr and Shadow Branch Dr may be reduced to a 25 mph speed zone -Arbor Creek Dr between Arbor Greene Dr and Evergreene Hill Dr may be reduced to a 25 mph speed zone -Arbor Run Dr between Arbor Creek Dr and Whisper Point Dr may be reduced to a 25 mph speed zone We would support the additional posting of 25 mph speed zones within each of the gated villages, if that is the desire of the Arbor Greene Community. Please let this email stand as an official record of the City's review of the Arbor Greene Community's request to lower its speed limit along the above outlined roads…” Effective December 6th, the new speed limit will be 25 mph. As you can see from the above, only Arbor Greene Drive from Cross Creek Blvd to the Estuary Dr./Enclave circle will remain at 30 mph.

Guest Verification System (“GVS”) In order to assist us in providing quicker and more efficient service to Arbor Greene residents and their guests, we will be implementing several very important changes. The first will be the Guest Verification System, or GVS, for after hour’s visitors at the Guard House. For this, if you anticipate *ever* having visitors between 10pm and 6am please provide us the telephone number that you would like to use for such purpose. The GVS should be operational by mid January. Effective January 14th 2013, we will call the number that we have on file; the gate guards will no longer accept numbers provided by the visitor. If a call is unanswered, access will be denied (only from 10pm until 6am). This new measure will create an increase in night time security. If you have visitors or guests that you would like to have added to an “always admit with no call” list, you will need to provide each visitor’s/guest’s name and address. This information will then be compared to the person’s driver’s license for verification. If a match, they will be admitted; no match: no admittance. Please provide this information by January 4th, 2013. The Administration Center will also be setting up a quick and easy way to contact our residents with important announcements via email. Should information arise that needs to be quickly distributed, we would do so by sending out an email blast. Residents may submit information to update their records in any of the following ways: 1. Provide your information using the CDD Service Request Form, found on the Arbor Greene.org homepage. (http://www.arborgreene.org/resources-cdd-service-request.html) 2. Call 991-9226 with your email information; 3. E-mail, agadmin@arborgreene.org, with your information.

Thank you for the opportunity to make Arbor Greene the best place to live! PAGE 8

WHAT THE BANKS DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW Debt Reduction While Increasing Personal Wealth (Part-7) Last month’s installment of this series of articles provided a few examples of how to benefit from using some of the tools that many financial institutions employ to earn large profits while keeping us in debt. These institutions are motivated by the large profits they stand to earn from us when we take advantage of the seemingly unbelievable, but carefully crafted and calculated loan and credit offers. To maximize financial institutions’ potential profit, they offer “deals” after employing a well-known, but often misunderstood tool, our credit scores. Consider reading on to gain a basic understanding of the background and significance of monitoring and maintaining a good credit score. Before reading on, please note that if you have a critical financial situation, this article is not meant to address it. I would strongly urge you to avoid any hesitation and sit down immediately with a financial manager, your current lender, or a debt consolidator. If you’re not in a critical situation, consider reading the examples below to learn how to begin the journey towards financial independence while using the very tools that financial institutions employ to earn large profits while keeping us in debt. The system of credit has been in use for thousands of years, but until the early 1980’s, individual financial institutions and businesses used their own unique ways to gauge a person’s ability and willingness to pay their debt, better known as credit worthiness. In the early 1980’s, several major financial institutions collaborated and began to use a common credit scoring system that would allow, with a persons’ permission, any of these institutions to have access to this credit scoring data. The purpose for this system was simply to provide financial institutions with a tool to gauge a person’s trustworthiness, or ability and willingness to stay true to their obligations and pay their debt. However, as with many good ideas, this system has transformed into much more. Not only does the credit scoring system aid in increasing bank profits, but it has a much larger impact on our finances than most of us are aware. Credit scores have become the financial industries’ self-licking ice-cream cone. A student graduating from high-school or college is told by most lenders, that they need to build their credit history to acquire loans for cars, homes, or even credit limits on credit cards. So, from the start, lenders encourage us to acquire debt to build a good payment history, to be eligible to acquire more debt later. Unfortunately, this is the system we have to work with, and without proper restraint and financial guidance, will lead most Americans into a life-long battle with revolving debt. Lending institutions reinforce the desire to stay in debt by offering lower interest rates to those persons who have a better and more complete credit history. However, financial institutions will still lend to those with poor, little, or no credit, but at much higher interest rates, increasing the profit margin while using the excuse that the lender is taking more of a risk. There is some truth to this explanation; however, the result is that higher interest rates are used by lenders as motivation for people to acquire more debt in order to better a person’s credit score. The truth is, small student loans, low balance credit cards, and lower to moderate auto loans are perfect ways to build a solid credit score and history. Lenders and some financial advisors typically state that little or no debt is bad and leads to a negative credit score. This is incomplete advice and misleading! The facts are that with little or no debt, a person’s credit score might never reach the highest potential score and the credit agencies will typically report “Not enough revolving debt” on your credit profile. However, consider how many lenders are waiting in line to offer you that next loan! The banks need your debt and by understanding your options, you will find that some of the best credit rates will likely be available to you. Now, you understand some of the basic history and uses of credit scoring; however, are you aware how your finances are affected by your scoring? Initially implemented by the banking industry for use by Con’t on page 11 PAGE 10

ARBOR GREENE GAZETTE DECEMBER 2012


Con’t from page 10 lenders, credit scores are now used by many insurance agencies (home/auto), employers, and rental property agencies and owners, to name a few. Many independent studies have shown that the care taken with a person’s finances is a fairly good indicator of how a person might act when driving (insurance), their work-ethic (employment), and how they may care for their property (rental agencies). Unfortunately, the good idea of the early 1980’s has found a way to affect many financial aspects of our lives. With this in mind, we need to understand the importance we place on fulfilling our financial promises and obligations, will have significant and long lasting effects on our lives. Consider obtaining your 1 free annual credit report from each of the 3 major credit agencies throughout the year and become familiar with what your profile says. The financial decisions we make affect each person differently based on age, years of credit, amounts of loans, defaults, missed payments, etc., but will not be covered in this article. However, understanding the importance of your credit profile while making efforts to improve it, will have long term benefits that will pay dividends to you in the future. Lastly, please be careful of who you take your financial advice from. Before accepting debt reduction or investment advice, ask your advisor if they are completely debt free. Many of us believe we own our home and vehicle, but in reality, a loan means that the lender owns these assets. If your financial advisor is not truly debt free and still has a mortgage or vehicle loan(s) or other loans, you should be very cautious about taking debt reduction or debt elimination advice from them. Please watch for future articles meant to further assist you on your way to financial freedom. Please support our Advertisers, tell them you saw their advertisement in the Arbor Greene Gazette.

MESSAGE FROM YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH DIRECTORS PAUL AND HALLY BOUCHER

“HOLIDAY SAFETY/SECURITY TIPS” It’s that time when families do holiday shopping, travel to visit with family and friends, etc. Here are tips that will hopefully keep you and your family safer during the holiday season.  Light up your home (inside and out) when it is dark outside. Close and lock windows and doors, including garage doors. Set your alarm even if you are at home; about 80% of home burglaries occur during the day. Turn on TVs or radios to give the appearance that someone is at home. Limit the number of persons you tell about your plans to be away from home.  Pay attention to your surroundings; don’t make yourself an easy target criminals. While you are at home, shopping, traveling, etc. look for suspicious activity or person(s); criminals or their associates often watch a person or place before they commit a crime or during the commission of a crime to avoid being caught. Please avoid opening your door for people you don’t know and verify identity before opening. If you see suspicious activity while in a store, e.g., someone continually watches you or your children, or someone follows you when you leave a party, immediately notify store security or the police. Don’t let your personal or phone conversations or texting distract you. Don’t allow tiredness or alcohol to impair your senses.  Before you leave home, take only items that you will need, including your cell phone. Don’t bring too many credit cards or too much cash. If you have to get cash from an ATM, use one in a public and well-lit location, preferably indoors. If possible, avoid using a large purse and don’t ever leave it unattended. Make sure to get your credit card back from cashiers and don’t allow others in line to see your credit card numbers or PINs.  When parking, pay attention to where you parked so you can return quickly to your vehicle. Park close to entrances of stores or homes and in well-lit areas when possible; stay away from isolated locations or near shrubbery where someone could hide. Lock your vehicle, roll up windows, and set the alarm even if you are only going to be gone for “just a second.” 

When you get ready to leave a store, holiday party, etc., have your vehicle keys ready and ask someone to walk you to your vehicle if you are uneasy about returning to it alone. Don’t wait until closing time or the very end of a party to go to your vehicle. If you are traveling from one location to another, take your valuables inside or place them in your vehicle’s trunk. As a very last option, cover your valuables with a blanket or similar item.

If you would like to receive more security tips and other relevant data from the TPD, please email us at ArborGreene-NWA@hotmail.com. Joining this email distribution group does not obligate you to any other NWA activity, but should help you and your family to be better informed and more secure, making Arbor Greene an even better place to live.
