Beach Club office staff-813-986-1031

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



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.

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. • 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 policyREMEMBER 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)

The workshops will run daily, with 24-hour access, starting at 9am, for the specific dates listed above) KEM MEDIA GROUP 813-501-4894

Lawn &


January Plantings & Lawn Maintenance

Plan to beautify your landscape with these tips for what to plant in JANUARY 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: Plants that can be added to the garden during the coolest months include dianthus, pansy, petunia, viola, and snapdragon. Bulbs: Crinum, agapanthus, and gloriosa lily bulbs can be planted now. Provide a layer of mulch to protect from cold temperatures. Camellias: Select and plant camellias this month. Visit local nurseries now for the best selection of colors and forms.

What to Do

Cold protection: Be ready to cover tender plants to minimize damage and be sure covers extend all the way to the ground. Frost or freezes are likely this month and next. Irrigation: Irrigate lawns and landscape plants minimally. This is their dormant season. Shrubs and trees: Prune non-spring flowering shrubs and trees this month to improve form. Arbor Day: Celebrate Florida Arbor Day (the third Friday of January) by planting a tree in your yard or community. Crapemyrtle: Remove seed pods, crossing branches, and small twiggy growth to improve the appearance and form of the plant, if desired. Hard pruning is not required. Pests: Apply horticultural oil to citrus, shrubs, camellias, and deciduous fruit trees while plants are dormant to control scale.

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.

Public records include all documents, papers, letters, maps, books, tapes, photographs, films, sound recordings, data processing software, or other material, regardless of physical form or characteristics, or means of transmission, made or received pursuant to law to ordinance or in connection with the transaction of official business by any agency.

s you know, I always encourage involvement by everyday citizens. The more you are involved with local government, the more results we will all see. Involvement is about not only action, but awareness. This past November, we elected three new government officials, one for our State Legislature and two in the Hillsborough County Commission, who I encourage you to get to know. The more these new officials hear from you, the more likely it is that the New and North Tampa areas will be on their mind. The first is our new State Representative for District 63, which includes New Tampa, Fentrice Driskell. Fentrice, a Harvard and Georgetown graduate, was a partner at the Carlton Fields law firm before running for office, where she still practices as Of Counsel. As a friend and colleague of Fentrice’s, I can tell you that there are few people more sincere or enthusiastic about getting things done. To contact Fentrice’s office, you can email them at Fentrice.Driskell@ myfloridahouse.gov Fentrice replaces our former State Representative Shawn Harrison of New Tampa, who we sincerely thank for his years of service to our local area. And we received two new County Wide County Commissioners. That means that these two leaders represent all of the County, including New and North Tampa. First is Kim Overman. Kim is a 34 year resident of the Tampa area, a mother of two, grandmother and small business owner. Kim

From Luis Viera, Tampa City Councilman

ran on a strong platform of expansion of transportation options for residents. Here in the New and North Tampa area, we know full well how about our county wide multi-billion dollar backlog in basic transportation necessities. Contact Kim’s office by reaching her legislative aide: Monica Petrella,petrellam@hillsboroughcounty.org Next is Mariella Smith. Mariella is a fourth generation Tampa native. In her campaign, Mariella stressed “smart growth.” This is something New Tampa knows a lot about. After all, we are an area that has gone from 7,000 people in 1990 to over 60,000 today. Anyone who reads the news knows about my concerns and fights when it comes to balancing development in New Tampa with concurrent infrastructure, family and transportation needs. Mariella’s contact information is: Smithma@hillsboroughcounty.org Mariella ran against New Tampa resident Victor Crist. We sincerely thank Commissioner Crist for his years of service to our local area. As 2019 progresses, I hope to do some Town Halls in our local area with these new three elected officials so that New and North Tampa can get to know them and so that these leaders can become familiar with our issues and needs. And I plan to do “ride alongs” with these new elected officials to show them our area and needs up close. Do your part, too. When you hear of these events, come on down and introduce yourself to your new elected officials and become involved. The more involved you are, the better our area will prosper and be represented.

New Resident Mixer- Wednesday, January 16th 7-9pm: This event is for all of our NEW residents and anyone struggling with security, community guidelines or the policies and procedures that are established here in Cory Lake Isles.

Thank you for your participation in our monthly events! If you want to volunteer for upcoming events or if you have a business and would like to SPONSOR an event, please stop by the Beach Club and speak with Amanda Schewe. You can also email her directly at clievents@ corylakescdd.net.
