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

We can add guests to visitors list, update phone and email address changes.

ADDRESSING PROBLEMS Below are the top 3 consistent issues; how to avoid and how to correct: • Problem: Long line at the Visitor Lane

ENVERA

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.

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. • Problem: Not presenting proper state 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. • Problem: Contractors/Vendors not 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)

Lawn &

Garden

February, 2019

What to Plant

Annuals/Bedding plants: Plants that perform better in the cooler months include petunia, pansy, verbena, dianthus, strawflower, and lobelia. Protect from frosts and freezing temperatures. Bulbs: Many bulbs can be planted now. Provide adequate water for establishment and protect from cold weather with mulch. Some examples include Amazon lily, crinum, and agapanthus. Azaleas: With azaleas in full bloom this month, now is a great time to select varieties to add to the landscape.

What to Do

Palms: Give cold-damaged palms proper care to encourage their recovery. Citrus: Check citrus trees for scab disease. Apply a copper fungicide when new leaves appear and again when two-thirds of the flower blossoms have fallen. Roses: Prune roses this month to remove damaged canes and improve the overall form. After pruning, fertilize and apply a fresh layer of mulch. Blooming will begin 8–9 weeks after pruning.

What to Do Every Month • Adjust irrigation based on rainfall. • Prune off dead blooms and seeds to encourage new flowers. • Monitor for insects and disease.

Putting Home Security on the Back Burner

S

ome people never give home security a second thought. Beyond locking their doors at night, these individuals willfully ignore suggestions about creating a safe residence with things like burglar alarms and surveillance cameras. From believing that devices like these are too expensive to believing that they can single-handedly protect a household, the following are some of the lamest reasons to ignore the need for home security devices: “A Burglar Alarm Is Too Expensive.” The cost of a burglar alarm pales in comparison to the loss of valuables, the cost of repairing windows and doors damaged during a break-in or medical bills acquired due to a criminal’s physical assault. Besides, a new burglar alarm is not as expensive as you might think. From DIY alarm systems to very inexpensive wireless ones, today’s home security systems are designed to fit even the tightest budgets. “My Dog Is My Home Security System.” Clearly, you’ve never Googled the words: dog hurt during burglary. Besides, every time you take your dog for a walk around the block, your alarm system goes with you. “My Home Security Company Is Smith & Wesson.” Legally obtaining a gun for protection is your prerogative. But what happens when a burglar breaks in while you are away from home? What happens when a criminal has his own gun, gets to yours before you do or is able to physically take your gun from you? I could go on, but you get the idea. Relying on a firearm for safety is your choice (as long as it’s legal in your area). But using one as your sole source of protection isn’t the brightest idea ever. A good home security system is always a better bet. “Someone Is Always Home At My House.” Yes, and someone is always home during home invasion robberies, too. I don’t mean to be snarky, but read your local newspaper or ask your local police department about recent incidents of homes being broken into while a resident was inside. “I Live In a Good, Safe Neighborhood.” No neighborhood is immune to break-ins. Once again, read your local paper or contact your police department to learn about crime in your area. Besides, some thieves target such neighborhoods precisely because people are so relaxed about home security. That and the fact that many who live in these neighborhoods tend to sometimes have the pricey items that burglars like to steal, such as high end jewelry and electronics. Any Excuse Is a Lame Excuse.To be honest, there is no good reason not to aim for a safe residence by using home security devices. At a minimum, every home should be guarded by a burglar alarm, an alarm monitoring service and security lighting. If you are guilty of making excuses or putting off the purchase of a good security system, please let this be a wake up call and change your faulty thinking by contacting a home security company today. Notify your Neighborhood Watch Coordinator, Sheryl Springer: sheryl@ corylakenw.com if you are interested in keeping on top of safety and security happenings in the community, please email Sheryl to be added to the Neighborhood Watch Distribution List. This is your way of knowing about issues, notifying your team if you have an alert to pass along, or want to attend.

CORY LAKE ISLES

From Luis Viera, Tampa City Councilman

Tampa City Councilman Luis Viera Year-End Update Making Progress For District 7 Just recently, I marked the two-year anniversary of being sworn in as your Tampa City Councilman. It has been such a real pleasure and honor to serve as the City Councilman for District 7. Throughout the last two years, we really hit the ground running – and we did so together. Thanks to the activism of groups and citizens in Forest Hills, New Tampa and other areas, we have been able to see meaningful change and progress on a wide variety of issues important to the residents of North Tampa. I worked with business owners and civic association leaders to promote an agenda of bicyclist, pedestrian and student safety in local government for Busch Boulevard; scores of citizens from New Tampa came together to demand that the New Tampa Recreation Center finally be expanded in the City of Tampa budget, and that Fire Station 23 finally be funded in the budget; many families and residents in the Forest Hills area came together to make a loud and resounding statement against redevelopment of the landmark Babe Zaharias Golf Course; families raising children with special needs came together to support the creation of the Sensory Friendly Park; Forest Hills residents came together to push for previously budgeted stormwater and parks improvements in the Forest Hills area that had been stalled; and citizens have come together to form the Forest Hills Council and New Tampa Council, which are invigorating citizen involvement in local government. This is all about involvement of constituents. Over the last few years, we have been able to make wonderful advancements together. New Tampa For the New Tampa area, we have also made wonderful advancements: · After years of refusal by Tampa to include this item in the budget, we organized citizens to support expansion of the New Tampa Recreation Center in the City of Tampa Budget. A facility which had a 3,000 to 4,000 person waiting list (with about 900 students enrolled) will be expanded very soon, thanks to the work of New Tampa residents such as David Burman of Cory Lakes and so many others in the New Tampa Council; · We supported and pushed through funding for Fire Station 23 in New Tampa. New Tampa has the worst response times in the City of Tampa, so this is a pivotal and much needed victory for the area; · To better organize New Tampa, we created the New Tampa Council. Thanks to this initiative, citizens have become involved in local government, with numerous Town Halls with County Commissioners and a School Board member; · We worked with Hillsborough County officials for safety improvements for Wharton High School students and others on Bruce B. Downs; · As your Tampa City Council member, I was proud to push for a sensible policy to the building and development of new communities Page 8 • FEBRUARY 2019

in New Tampa, which balance development with infrastructure, including for K-Bar Ranch. The New Tampa area has seen a growth of 7,000 residents to 60,000 residents from 1990 to today, without corresponding infrastructure improvements. We can do better; · Together, the neighborhoods of New Tampa have continued to be represented in having a strong and active voice on Kinnan-Mansfield, including meeting with Pasco County officials and supporting local plans to advocate for the Hillsborough-Tampa position, which benefits both Hillsborough and Pasco Counties. We have made our voice heard on the need for this connector and will continue to do so. · Together with help from New Tampa residents from a local traffic safety group, I was able to champion and secure funding for safety improvements for New Tampa Trail on New Tampa Blvd, which begins in terms of immediate repairs in December, 2018; · We championed a study for adding a third left turn lane for westbound to southbound movement from Cross Creek to Bruce B. Downs. The study continues on our options for Cross Creek Blvd., which I drive virtually every single day.

Special Needs Advocacy/Diversity I have also been privileged to take a strong lead on an issue very close to my heart, Autism Awareness/Special Needs: · I was proud to push for and support funding for design and development of an Autism Sensory Friendly Park in the Tampa Palms area for District 7 and the City of Tampa; · I proudly supported neighborhood parks and recreations enhancements for handicapped and wheelchair accessible, as well as Autism friendly, improvements, including for New Tampa Park and Takomah Trail Park; · I was also appointed by Mayor Buckhorn to serve on his Autism Friendly City Committee. I am proud to stand for the idea that our City should be welcoming of everyone, including those with special needs, whether, developmental, intellectual or physical disabilities. I have been proud to, as a Tampa City Councilman, champion the cause of tolerance and have worked closely with communities to champion the idea that we are One Tampa, regardless of our differences. I have also been proud to partner with members of different religious faiths for community events and to champion causes – such as Florida’s Amendment 4 – which combat discrimination and injustice. District 7 represents many diverse communities, including many religious diverse communities who come from many different areas throughout the world to become proud Americans. I am proud to represent a District of Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and non-believers who come together to form a pluralistic American community. KEM MEDIA GROUP 813-501-4894

Lake Maintenance By Sheila Haque, CDD Supervisor

One of the main reasons we decided to live in Cory Lake was the appeal

of living on a lake. We have a beautiful sunrise view each morning of the sun and clouds reflecting on the lake- it’s breathtaking. Our girls love seeing the ducks, geese, cranes, turtles, and the alligators that have made Cory Lake their home. Many things can be spotted in our lake such as bass, bluegill, cichlids, goldfish, red pacu, catfish, otters, and water moccasins. John Hall has even spotted deer swimming in our lake. Our lakes aren’t your average lakes though. Our main lake is spring fed but most of our lakes were created to help manage stormwater. Our community employs various types of stormwater systems: • Retention: water seeps through soil to groundwater and does not connect to another body of water. • Swale: a linear system that holds water during and immediately after a storm. • Detention: collects water and discharges to nearby surface water. • Littoral shelf: this is the shallow area in a pond where vegetation grows. Littoral shelves filter out contaminants, reduce algae growth, and provide a home to wildlife. The above areas require maintenance and care on a regular basis. The CDD has contracted a company called Solitude Lake Management that treats certain things such as the grasses and algae that can overtake our lake as well also repositioning buoys and clearing our shoreline of debris. The CDD also performs maintenance on the various systems such as cleaning discharge areas and recently replaced the weir on Cory Lake Dr. As residents there are also things that we can do to help keep our lake clean and habitable- the biggest of which is preventing pollution: • Keep a 15 foot fertilizer-free buffer zone from the lake edge. Fertil-

COMMUNITY NEWS INFORMATION izers contribute to algae blooms and excessive growth of undesirable plants in our lake. • Don’t allow grass clippings to fall into the lakethis can also lead to algae blooms. • Minimize erosion- sand from erosion blocks light for plants and clogs fish gills. • Pet waste- pick up after your pet so that bacteria from pet waste does not contaminate water. • Never dump chemicals, oils, pesticides into the lake. • Remove excessive vegetation. • Do not introduce invasive plants: alligator weed, aquarium moss, Eurasian watermilfoil, hydrilla, water spinach, water hyacinth, water lettuce, or West Indian marsh grass. Residents can also plant Florida native plants along the shoreline to prevent erosion, reduce the chance of non-native plants invading, and improve water quality by filtering out contaminates from fertilizers and other harmful substances (a list of Florida Friendly aquatic

plants can be found below). However, please note any plants that are planted below the high-water mark could be susceptible to any herbicides when the lake management company has to treat the lake! Disclaimer: Most of Cory Lake residents are able to plant along the shoreline with the exception of Capri Isle. The buffer zone around the lakes in Capri Isle are CDD owned and maintained.
