These have been installed just after the Arbor

Greene gatehouse on the entry side as a measure of customer service. The Arbor Greene CDD has installed this second set of gate arms to be brought down when vehicles need to turn around at the gate entrance. This prevents the periodic "drive-thru" that

“A Fresh Perspective” Greetings from the Arbor Greene Homeowner’s Association (HOA). As most of you are aware, our annual board elections are designed to bring a fresh perspective to both our board as well as our entire association. Along with our elections this year, we have also gained a fresh perspective in management. We are pleased to introduce Miss Janet MacNealy to our community as our new Community Association Manager, replacing Mr. Mark Eary. We thank Mark for his 5 years with our community and welcome Janet to our team. Janet is a veteran of Greenacre Property Management and brings with her a wealth of knowledge and motivation. She is excited to have joined our team and we’re happy to have her working with our community. As a brief reminder from the HOA board, Deed Restricted communities, like Arbor Greene, have rules and standards, typically referred to as Covenants and Design Standards. Most of us choose to move into a community like ours because these rules and standards help to maintain our home’s economic value and quality of life. This is the reason that notices are sometimes mailed to residents by our HOA contracted management company, Greenacre Property Management. These notices are meant to help educate and encourage residents to maintain the rules and standards that benefit the entire community. All residents, including homeowners, seasonal homeowners, and renters, are strongly encouraged to familiarize yourselves with the Arbor Greene Covenants and Design Standards, as we are all responsible for adhering to them. These documents are currently available for download and review on the Greenacre Properties website: http://www.greenacre.com . If you have questions about access to this website, the Covenants and Design Standards, or a notice you’ve received, please contact our new Manager, Janet, at jmacnealy@greenacre.com, or consider attending the next HOA meeting. Thank you for working with us to help keep our community one of the most beautiful places to live. Paul Boucher HOA Board President

As we continue with the installation of gutters within the community, as well as wrapping up the exterior painting project, we encourage all homeowners and tenants to be aware of the crews. Watch for their progress towards your unit and remove personal belongings and vehicles that may be in the way. The successful completion of these projects depends upon the cooperation of all residents. As the beautification of our wonderful community continues, property values are rising. In an effort to continue this upward trend, we ask that all residents keep in mind the deed restrictions and covenants set forth in our recorded documents. If you have not already done so, please make sure you contact Alicia Payne to set up your online account for Condominium Associates. You can access your own accounting ledger, read meeting minutes, access lease information and deed restrictions. Alicia is always available to answer your questions or concerns. The Board of Directors has an open seat available. If you are interested in taking a more active role in your community, please reach out to Alicia and express your intent. And as always, all are welcome to attend the monthly meetings, held on the second Thursday of each month. School is out! We hope everyone had a successful school year and enjoys the summer break!

Property Manager: Will Alvarez Unique Property Services (813)-879-1139 walvarez@uniquepropertyservices.com

It’s hard to believe that July is upon us! It is a time for celebrating our independence along with cookouts, gatherings of family and friends and having fun at the beach. It is also a time when friends come over to spend some time with us. This, of course, means extra vehicles needing a place to park, and unfortunately, our driveways just do not accommodate many vehicles. If you are planning to have friends or family come by to stay for a few days, please remember that our covenants govern the parking of vehicles on the driveway and also on the street. Here are the excerpts: a) Garage doors may be kept open for temporary periods of time for other than when vehicles enter or exit the garage except between the evening hours of dusk and dawn. b) Vehicles may be parked on the driveway without the garage being fully occupied with the Owner’s or Tenant’s vehicles during the day between the daytime hours of dawn and dusk. c) Vehicles shall be parked only within Residential Units on paved surfaces or designated areas and shall not block sidewalks or bike paths. d) Parking by Owners within street rights-of-way is prohibited and the Association is authorized to tow vehicles parked in violation thereof. Overnight parking in street rights-of-way by any person is prohibited. e) Owners wanting other vehicle parking exceptions must obtain prior Design Review Board (DRB) approval via the use of the DRB approval application. If you are having guests staying at your home, it is important to notify the Devonshire DRB ahead of time to let them know your plans so they can review your particular situation and offer some recommendations. You can use the “Contact Us” link on our webpage at www.villagesofdevonshire.com if you need any further information on how to do this. Happy Independence Day Nicholas (Nick) D'Andrea, Jr. Board President

NATIONAL POLLUTANT DISCHARGE ELIMINATION SYSTEM (NPDES) Below are some commonly asked questions concerning stormwater: What are the effects of stormwater runoff? Stormwater runoff is

the transport vehicle for pollutants. Any dirt, oil, grease, fertilizer or other pollutants on the ground can be picked up by stormwater runoff and carried into the stormdrains, lakes and rivers. These pollutants may include nutrients which provide food for unwanted aquatic plants like hydrilla and algae. Excessive algal growth can lead to decreased oxygen in the water that fish need to breathe, resulting in fish kills. Bacteria and other pathogens from pet waste can create serious health hazards in ponds and lakes. What’s the difference between a storm drain and a sewer drain?

The sewer drain and sewer system takes all household wastewater and routes it through a plumbing system into a wastewater treatment plant. Some examples of sewer drains you may see are in the wash area at the back of a restaurant and the drain in the floor of a public restroom. The storm system routes rainwater off the streets into a storm drain which empties into a stormwater pond or directly into a river, ditch or lake. Some examples of storm drains you may see include the open curb inlet along roadways and the square storm grate commonly seen in parking lots. What is a stormwater pond?

There are two main types of stormwater ponds, a detention pond which typically has water in it most of the year. These are the ponds that people often refer to as their neighborhood lakes. These ponds play a critical role in managing our surface water quantity and quality. Stormwater detention ponds are designed and constructed to reduce flooding and play an important role by catching and filtering polluted run-off from roads, parking lots and over-fertilized lawns. While some pollutants biodegrade within the stormwater pond, others are more persistent and accumulate in the sediment. Therefore, one should never swim or eat fish from a stormwater detention pond. A stormwater retention pond is typically dry and usually only has water unit for a few days after a rainstorm. These retention ponds also are designed to reduce flooding and filter stormwater runoff. The stormwater filters through the sand bottom and eventually enters the groundwater. What is an illicit or illegal discharge?

Any substance released into the separate storm water drainage system that is not composed entirely of stormwater or uncontaminated groundwater. Examples of illicit discharges include dumping of motor vehicle fluids, household hazardous waste, paint, pool water, grass clipping, leaf litter or animal waste. 11

Summertime Safety and Security Tips

Beach Safety for Dogs

Hello Arbor Greene (AG) Neighbors. Last month’s article offered tips to help secure your home if you’re away for a short or extended period of time. This month’s article will focus on some tips to help keep our community safe and secure during the summer, as most children are now out of school, and families and friends are coming to visit the Tampa area. In the summer, we often have increased numbers of pedestrians and bicyclists using the streets and sidewalks, so it’s a good idea to keep an eye out for people who may not follow the “rules of the road”, or be familiar with our community. The Tampa Police Department (TPD) advises pedestrians and bicyclists to be especially careful at intersections, where many accidents tend to happen. For more pedestrian and bike safety tips, related laws, and use of helmets and bike lights, the TPD suggests visiting: www.nhtsa.gov/bicycles, www.floridabicycle.org, etc.

before you go. 

Don’t

forget

poo

bags so you can clean up after your dog. 

Make sure your dog has a collar, ID tag and preferably is

microchipped, just in case he gets lost. 

Don’t assume your dog can swim. All dogs have to learn to

swim just like us.

Some breeds are naturally good strong

swimmers, but other breeds (such as corgis and pugs) are not. If your dog is not used to swimming then the sea is not the place to start so make sure he doesn’t get out of his depth. 

Drinking salt water is a bad idea. For some reason dogs do

drink salt water, but it doesn’t do them any good and can make them

Since more of us may be out on bikes during the summer, it’s a good idea to register our bikes in case they get lost or stolen. The TPD has a FREE bike registration program. If your bike is registered with the TPD, and the police recover it, your registration data may help officers to return your property to you. Register your bikes online by going to the City of Tampa Police Department website, find “Programs,” then click on “Bike Registration.” Another great resource for registration is the National Bike Registry, helping owners to locate their bikes even across state lines: https:// www.nationalbikeregistry.com. If you believe your bicycle was stolen, call TPD’s Non-Emergency Number (813-231-6130) to file a report. AG Neighborhood Watch (NWA) works with the TPD to communicate with AG residents when stolen or lost bikes are found, providing another way to reunite residents with their property. If you want more details about these tips, or to receive security tips/alerts from the TPD, email us at ArborGreeneNWA@hotmail.com. Joining this email group does not obligate you to any NWA activity. AG NWA is an all-volunteer program overseen by the TPD. Thank you for your continued help in making AG one of the nicest and safest communities in New Tampa.

poisoning. Ensure you have plenty of fresh water to keep you both hydrated. 

Consider a life vest if you are planning to swim, sail or surf

with your dog. You can buy life vests for dogs of all sizes. Waves and currents can quickly exhaust your dog, especially in cold water. Some life vests also have a handle on the back, making it easy for you to lift your dog out of the water. 

Consider a doggie sunscreen – especially for dogs with thin or

pale fur and apply to areas such as the nose and ears. 

Don’t overdo it. Running on sand is more tiring than on grass,

so don’t expect your dog to be able to run and play for as long as he might on his normal walk. And start slowly, giving him time to warm up. 

Make sure your dog has a shady area to rest in and remember

that sand can be scorching on paws on a hot day. Be careful to avoid heat stroke – watch for signs of overheating such as excessive panting, drooling, coordination problems, vomiting and/or diarrhea and collapse. If your dog suffers from arthritis or other joint conditions limit the amount of time he spends swimming in cold water. He may think it is great fun at the time, but he will probably be very stiff
