The CDD Security companies, Envera Next Generation Security and Allied Universal Security, work in conjunction with one another to provide gate access, roving patrol and video surveillance of gates and amenities. Our uniformed Security Officers (SO) at the gate play a vital role as the ‘eyes and ears’ of each and every single vehicle that enters the community; we expect a courteous smile, hand wave or nod to vehicles entering the community through both gates (resident and visitor) and we expect them to follow their company Post Orders as well as tailored procedures specifically for our community. Keep in mind three ways you can update your Envera security profile: Myevera.com-use your unique login, password & PIN to access this user-friendly portal via desktop, laptop or mobile app

(available for Apple and Android products). Contact the Beach Club if you do not have your login information.

Envera customer service-1-877-936-8372 Customer service is available 24-hours to accomplish a variety of requests-updating profile information, adding guests to visitors lists, changing passwords). Add this number to your contacts for easy reference.

Beach Club office staff-813-986-1031 ADDRESSING PROBLEMS We can add guests to visitors list, update phone and email address changes. Below are the top 3 consistent issues; how to avoid and how to correct:

Problem: Long line at the •Visitor Lane Solution: 1) Ensure your primary phone number is up to date; 2) add your guest to your visitor log prior to arrival, reduces 50% of the interaction time by eliminating the need for gate authorization with a phone call; and 3) visitor has proper state issued identification readily available.

Not presenting proper •stateProblem: issued identification Solution: Have identification ready! It’s nearly impossible for SO’s to remember over 940+ resident profiles! Identification is vital for address verification, correct name spelling and deny entry individuals.

Contractors/Vendors •notProblem: allowed entry at certain times

Solution: Per the Post Orders set forth in CDD policy-REMEMBER these authorized work hours and schedule accordingly: Mon-Fri, 7am-7pm; Sat & Sun, 9am-7pm. Holidays, 9am-7pm. ALL work vehicles must leave by 8pm everyday. (For emergencies, i.e. plumber, a/c, internet/phone; contact the gate house and let them know of the emergency so they can properly notate in their report log) KEM MEDIA GROUP 813-501-4894

Lawn &


October, 2018 Plan to beautify your landscape with these tips for what to plant in August and lawn maintenance measures! Excerpts are taken from http://edis. ifas.ufl.edu courtesy of University of Florida IFAS Extension.

What to Plant

Annuals/Bedding plants: Even though temperatures are still warm, begin planting for the cooler months ahead. Dianthus, petunia, and pansy are good annuals for the fall garden. See Annuals: http://edis.ifas.ufl. edu/topic_annual_landscape_plants Bulbs: Plant agapanthus, rain lily, and many varieties of lilies now for blooms next spring or summer. Add organic matter to the planting bed for best results. See Bulbs for Florida: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/topic_ bulbous_flowers Herbs: A wide range of herbs can be planted from seeds or plants this month. Some examples include parsley, cilantro, chives, garlic, and sage. See Herbs: http://edis.ifas. ufl.edu/topic_herbs

What to Do

Lawn weeds: Control winter weeds in lawns before they appear. Preemergence herbicides must be applied at the right time to be effective. Apply when nighttime temperatures are 55°F–60°F for 4–5 days. Avoid "weed and feed" products. See Lawn Weeds:http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/topic_lawn_ weeds Ornamental trees and shrubs: Fertilize plants that are not performing as desired. Controlled-release fertilizer provides nutrients over a longer period of time. See Nutrient Deficiencies (Landscape Plants): http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/topic_nutrient_ deficiencies_landscape_plants

*Everyone loves a good scare on Halloween, but not when it comes to child safety. There are several easy and effective behaviors that parents can share with kids to help reduce their risk of injury.

Hard Facts

On average, children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year.

Top Tips

By Luis Viera, Tampa City Council

New Tampa Family Takes Stand for Mental Health Awareness Not long ago, New Tampa was home to a terrible tragedy that inspired a remarkable personal movement for a local family. On March 28, 2017, Chris and Lisa Acierno lost their only daughter, Hailey, due to mental illness. Hailey, who was only 17 years old, took her own life after a long struggle with mental illness, leaving behind a grieving family and community. Chris and Lisa took time to mourn. But soon, this New Tampa family would take their sorrow – which will never leave them – and turned it into action by creating Hailey’s Voice of Hope, a not for profit foundation created for charitable and educational purposes. The central organizing purpose of Hailey’s Voice of Hope is to raise awareness for mental illness and prevent suicide; erase the stigma on mental illness that prevents so many from seeking treatment; raise funds to support organizations with similar purposes; and educate others on mental illness. If you want to learn more about Hailey’s Voice of Hope, you can visit their website at: https://haileysvoice.com/ Mental illness is something that is present in every single family. Your family. Your neighbor’s family. And my family. No family is untouched from emotional challenges. All of us, no matter how strong we may appear on the outside, are vulnerable to anxiety, depression and isolation, and some of us take the hits that come in life harder than the rest. In our own country, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death. Each year, about 45,000 Americans take their own life, and for every suicide, there are 25 attempts. And for many different groups, there are even more acute statistics. The suicide rate among veterans is 30 per 100,000 people,

compared with the civilian rate of 14 per 100,000. And our youth – like young Hailey – continue to take their own lives, as suicide is the 2ndleading cause of death among people ages 10 to 24. Ernest Hemingway once wrote that “the world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places.” Former United States Senator Max Cleland, a decorated Vietnam veteran who lost three limbs while serving in Vietnam, chose to title his memoirs “Strong at the Broken Places” after this famous and instructive line. Senator Cleland, a man who had sustained tremendous loss while serving our country, lost a re-election he thought he had “in the bag” in 2002 and suddenly, after having served for six years as a United States Senator, found himself battling emotional conditions he thought he had tamed decades ago. Soon, Senator Cleland returned to the very place where he had his wounds taken care of 35 years before – Walter Reed Hospital, this time for treatment of post-traumatic stress syndrome and acute depression. He did not want to go on with life, having had his depression triggered by this loss. Eventually, with the right treatment, Senator Cleland would find recovery and hope again. The lesson with Senator Max Cleland – a war hero who left three limbs behind in the fields of the Vietnam War and who would confront the emotional demons of depression 35 years later – is that none of us are exempt from depression, anxiety or isolation. And there is no time limit on when your past can come back to cause depression. There is no “statute of limitations” on depression or PTSD. It can come back months later, or 35 years later, thanks to a trigger. We are all at-risk for this. We begin to confront mental illness by being honest about our own humanity and our own family’s experiences and history. Be a peacemaker and bridge builder in your community who helps your brothers and sisters be strong in broken places. And do not forget those families – like the Acierno family of New Tampa – who hope and pray for a more empathetic community.

Property Owners Association Board of Directors Welcome New Residents If you are new to our community, the Board of Directors would like to welcome you to Cory Lake Isles by inviting you to the next POA Board Meeting to meet the Board of Directors and meet other members of our community.

Property Rentals There has been an influx of properties being offered on a short-term basis including nightly, weekly, and even individual rooms being rented. This violation of the covenants has led to rentals where loud all-night partying is happening, renters are parking on their neighbors’ grass and breaking irrigation lines, and party goers entering a neighbors’ yard.

Slow down The speed limit in Cory Lake Isles is 25 MPH, the POA is utilizing a mobile device to record speeding throughout the community. Citations fines will be sent out in the same fashion as property violations. Lawns, Landscaping, and Tree Trimming In an effort to maintain the appearance level of our community, the POA will be enforcing the standards by ‘force service’ mowing, edging, trimming and trimming trees of properties that refuse or ignore their responsibilities to maintain their properties.

Covenant Changes In a survey to the community 92% of respondents stated that they felt the covenants needed revisions. The POA will be asking the community to vote for a change to our covenants in the coming months. Currently the covenants require 51% of the 960 homes to vote in favor of a change which has created hardship in making required changes because only about 500 homeowners are even active in voting or reading e-mails sent from the POA. The goal is to strengthen the rights of our homeowners and not to weaken the standards that we expect. Some of the aspects that need to change are: • Stronger short-term rental rules to prohibit advertising/renting homes by the night or the week. • Address the policy for covenant change to be reflective of majority of those casting a vote. • Fix conflicting information within the documents and also create consistent rules between documents such as the Design Review Committee Manual, Bylaws, and the Covenants.
