January 2011 HAPPY NEW YEAR On behalf of the Arbor Greene CDD Board of Supervisors and the CDD Staff, we wish all Arbor Greene Residents a safe and Happy New Year in 2011. Top 10 New Years Destinations 1. Sydney, Australia The Sydney New Year’s Eve celebration is for Australians what the New York Apple drop is for Americans. Considering this party draws out a million guests, not including the millions that tune in via TV, you know they are going to put on a fantastic show. Located along the Sydney Harbour, the fireworks are absolutely fantastic. Plus, you could celebrate in Sydney and quickly fly somewhere else and party the New Year twice. 2. New York City, New York The ball drop in Times Square is synonymous with New Year’s Eve. Besides this once-a-year party, New Yorkers just know how to put on a fantastic celebration. There are new clubs, legendary clubs, ritzy hotels and five-star diners for you to experience. Times Square is jammed on December 31 so get there super early if you want to catch a glimpse of it. Even if you aren’t able to reach Times Square, the vibe of the city is reason enough to come. 3. Berlin, Germany As an important symbol in German history, the Brandenburg Gate holds a special place in all German hearts. Hundreds of thousands of them come to the gate each year to welcome in the upcoming year. Although Berlin can be a tad cold during this time of year, you won’t even notice it with all of the people surrounding you. 4. London, England If you are looking for a street party, look no further. The London Parade, held New Year’s Day, attracts visitors from all over Europe. It is a fantastic celebration featuring local heroes, marching bands, clowns and more. To appreciate the size of this celebration you really need to see it firsthand. Of course, London has a variety of different events for you to enjoy in the evening as well. Make your way to the London Eye for a spectacular fireworks display. Another favorite to watch the time go by is at London’s Big Ben clock tower. It too has a fabulous fireworks show for you to enjoy. 5. Toronto, Ontario The diversity that thrives in Toronto can be seen through the various celebrations the city hosts over New Years. There is of course a huge selection of clubs for you to choose from, especially in the Entertainment District. The annual New Year’s Eve Bash at Nathan Phillips Square is another venue where you can listen to some of today’s chart topping performers. Ending with a bang on December 31, the fireworks display is truly amazing. Continued on page 8

Pedestrians and Crosswalks– It’s The Law Arbor Greene has four (4) designated crosswalks on two of our most heavily traveled roadways. Two crosswalks are on Arbor Greene Drive, one at Devonshire Lake Drive intersection and one at the Community Center entrance at the intersection at Arbor Wind Drive. The other two crosswalks are located on Arbor Creek Drive at the intersection of Avalon Lane and the remaining crosswalk is located at the intersection of Arbor Run Drive. These crosswalks provide a safe and convenient area for our residents to cross the streets, but only if vehicle drivers adhere to the Florida State Statues: FSS 316.130 (7a): The driver of a vehicle at an intersection that has a traffic control signal in place shall stop before entering the crosswalk and remain stopped to allow a pedestrian, with a permitted signal, to cross a roadway when the pedestrian is in the crosswalk or steps into the crosswalk and is upon the half of the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling or when the pedestrian is approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to be in danger. FSS 316.130 (7b): The driver of a vehicle at any crosswalk where signage so indicates shall stop and remain stopped to allow a pedestrian to cross a roadway when the pedestrian is in the crosswalk or steps into the crosswalk and is upon the half of the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling or when the pedestrian is approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to be in danger. FSS 316.130 (7c): When traffic control signals are not in place or in operation and there is no signage indicating otherwise, the driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way, slowing down or stopping if need be to so yield, to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within a crosswalk when the pedestrian is upon the half of the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling or when the pedestrian is approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to be in danger. Any pedestrian crossing a roadway at a point where a pedestrian tunnel or overhead pedestrian crossing has been provided shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles upon the roadway.

Parents: Do you have children around the age of 10-12? Recently, three young girls were observed entering the code to a village gate and then proceeded to ―ride‖ the gate while it was opening. This is a dangerous activity that could lead to a serious injury of your child. Additionally, this added weight to the gate contributes to increased maintenance and expense for the residents of the village. Please inform your children that riding the gate is prohibited and extremely dangerous. If you observe this activity, please help by identifying the children and inform the parents of this activity, or call the Arbor Greene Admin office with the information. We will alert the parents to their children’s actions so the parents can take corrective action. It takes a village to raise a child. Let’s all help keep our children safe. Have them swing on swings, not on village gates. ARBOR GREENE GAZETTE ● JANUARY 2011

Trash and Litter Throughout Our Community: Please Don’t Feed The Wildlife! The failure of some residents to use trash receptacles for their trash and garbage represents a disturbing trend in our community. By leaving trash in thin plastic bags, and putting it out the night before, some residents are providing a wonderful treat for raccoons, rats, buzzards and other assorted scavengers. Then, the leftovers blow around and make the neighborhood look like Mount Trashmore. The Arbor Greene policy regarding garbage and trash is as follows: All household debris with exception of bulk items must be in trash receptacles that are approved by the trash company and the HOA. Approved HOA trash receptacles must be animal and bird proof, constructed of metal or heavy formed plastic with secure lids. The amount of an individual container can not exceed the ability to secure the lid on tight. Plastic bags are not acceptable containers, as wild animals can easily dig/rip their way through the plastic. We spend an inordinate amount of time picking up litter, cigarette butts and trash on our streets, especially after trash day. When walking throughout our community, please Leave It Cleaner Than You Found it! If you observe someone littering, please call the Hillsborough County “LITTER” Hotline: 1-877-y-litter. If you observe someone dumping please call the

Hillsborough County Sheriffs Dept: (813) 247-8200. ARBOR GREENE GAZETTE ● JANUARY 2011

Prescribed Burning Tis the season-for prescribed burning! Please be aware that from time to time the Southwest Florida Water Management District conducts prescribed burns on various areas within Flatwoods Park and other parts of the Lower Hillsborough Flood Detention Area. Prescribed burning maintains the ecological integrity of the natural plant communities while reducing the risk of wildfires. Burns are carried out by qualified personnel with proper equipment when weather and site conditions are appropriate. For visitor safety, the District works with Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation, and Conservation Dept. staff to close trails during burns. Your patience and cooperation are greatly appreciated! For more information, please contact Cyndi Gates at 352-796-7211, ext. 4461. ARBOR GREENE GAZETTE ● JANUARY 2011

Continued From Page One: Top 10 New Year’s Destinations 6. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Rio knows how to bring in the New Year. Actually, it has the reputation for being the best place to bring in the New Year. You and a couple million of your closest friends all line the stunning Copacabana Beach to watch a fireworks show like you have never seen before. Although they are definitely at their peak at the stroke of midnight, the locals start early in the afternoon and continue until the morning of New Year’s Day. Before midnight, you will see people dressed in all white throwing flowers into the water as a symbol of good luck. 7. Tokyo, Japan Celebrating the New Year in Tokyo is filled with friendly people walking the streets as they go to family and friends’ houses, restaurants or even the clubs. The celebration begins a few days earlier on the 29th of December and continues until January 4th. Yes, that means you have a full week to celebrate with your new friends. 8. Los Angeles, California LA is a hotspot anytime of year but the city bursts with energy on December 31st. There are thousands of clubs and restaurants for you to choose from, fantastic firework displays held throughout the city and music pumping from almost every street corner. What makes Los Angeles stand out though is its legendary Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade. The parade comes complete with floats, marching bands and even has a famous Grand Marshal that leads the way. 9. Paris, France The City of Light comes into full force on New Year’s Eve. In general, there are two areas where locals and guests come together – the Champs Elysées and the Eiffel tower. If you are planning on starting out your evening at the Champs Elysées, you will end up at the Arc de Triomphe by the stroke of midnight. It seems anywhere you go though, there are thousands of people milling around who are drinking that delicious Parisian wine and offering well wishes to anyone within hearing/shouting distance. 10. Disney World, Florida Disney World is a great choice for all of the families who would like to celebrate the New Year together. You aren’t the only one with this idea though and these parks can be quite packed, so make sure you stick together. Whichever of the parks you decide to watch the fireworks, you will be in for a real treat. The favorite though seems to be Pleasure Island, which magically transforms itself into a fantastic street party filled with music, food and entertainment.

COOLING & PLUMBING

Continued from page 4: Pedestrians and Crosswalks As many of us have experienced, we, as pedestrians, should never "assume" a vehicle driver will stop and allow us to cross the street and unharmed. Often, drivers are in such a rush that they expect pedestrians to stop for them, and get quite upset when they have to stop and let pedestrians slowly cross the street in the crosswalk. Here are some common sense guidelines to pedestrians, drivers and bikers. Pedestrians:  Stop and look for vehicles.  Make sure vehicles are stopping before you begin to cross. Make eye contact with the driver if possible.  Make sure vehicles in each lane are stopping. Never assume vehicles are going to stop. Vehicle Drivers:  Always stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk.  The speed limit in Arbor Greene is 30MPH (except in Carriage Homes and Devonshire which is 25MPH). However, when pedestrians are present, slow down and expect the unexpected. Children are prone to "dart" into the street when nearby.  Be patient with slow walkers. Don’t blow your horn or your cool!! Bikers:  Go with the traffic flow.  Obey all traffic laws.  Yield to traffic when appropriate.  Stay alert at all times.  Look before turning.  Watch for parked cars.

A Message From the Neighborhood Watch Directors Hello Arbor Greene (AG) neighbors. We hope you and your family had a happy and safe holiday season. Now that we are about to start a new year, we want to suggest some resolutions you might consider to make 2011 a safer one for you, your family, and your property. We had a successful year. The AG Neighborhood Watch (NWA) has grown in numbers through the AG Neighborhood Watch e-mail distro. Unfortunately, in our poor economy, crooks are looking for unsecured places to steal property, and on occasion this past year, AG homes/garages were burglarized. Working together, we can help limit criminal opportunities, keeping you and your family and property more secure. Resolution #1: Light it – Criminals hate light at night since they fear being identified. Turn on lights at the back and front of your home at dusk. Buy timers for lights inside your house so lights are turned on when you are not home makes it appear you are home even if you are not. You can also purchase motion sensors and timers which will turn on outdoor lights at night. Resolution #2: Lock it and alarm it - Lock your doors, windows, and turn on your alarm for your home. Consider turning your alarm on even when you are at home. Make sure you lock your vehicles at all times, even if they are parked in the garage; keep valuables out of sight if you have to leave them in the vehicle. Keep garage doors closed to discourage criminals from stealing your property and attempting to enter your home. Resolution #3: Eliminate it - If you still have boxes from holiday gifts for televisions, computers, game-systems, etc., then make sure you cut those boxes up before putting them out in the recycling bins. Thieves often look for those boxes to help them determine which homes are worth breaking into. Resolution #4: Shred it - Work to help prevent identity theft. Make certain you shred any document which has your personal data on it such as name, address, phone number, credit card number, bank account information, etc. Be careful what personal details you post on social network sites such as Facebook. Resolution #5: Enhance it - Add some additional security measures to your home. In addition to the security measures mentioned in the earlier paragraphs, you can install relatively inexpensive chains and deadbolts on your doors, door chimes on your lanai screen doors, motion activated outdoor lights, etc. Leave the radio or television on to give the appearance that you are home. If you are able to spend a bit more, then security systems with cameras, motion detectors, and glass breakage sensors can enhance your home security. Resolution #6: Report it - Become a Neighborhood Watch Association and Tampa Police Department’s ―eyes and ears‖ by actively watching who is in your neighborhood. Criminals sometimes pose as repairmen or delivery persons, so keep a watchful eye out for these types of perpetrators. If you see someone who is not from the neighborhood and acting suspiciously, do not confront them, but call the Tampa Police Department to report them at 813-231-6130. The police do not know who belongs in your neighborhood, but if you call, then they can dispatch a police unit to check out suspicious persons. You will not sound paranoid and your actions can prevent criminal activity. If a crime is about to happen or has occurred against person(s) or property, immediately dial 9-1-1 from a safe distance and do not confront crooks. Resolution #7: Join it - Become better informed by becoming a member of the Arbor Greene Neighborhood Watch Association (NWA) email distro. Send an e-mail to ArborGreene-NWA@hotmail.com and receive information from Arbor Greene NWA co-leaders and Tampa Police Department regarding local criminal activities and security tips. Joining this group does not obligate you to any NWA associated activities. ARBOR GREENE GAZETTE ● JANUARY 2011

Meaning, if someone had already booked a party prior to 11/22/10, they may have amplified music; all new bookings may not.

IS YOUR BAR CODE NOT WORKING?

Tawny has been instrumental in providing exceptional service to our residents having notarized more than 225 documents for our residents. We wish her best wishes and good parenting while she takes on new and greater responsibilities as a parent.
