Live Oak Preserve

TO THE RESIDENTS OF LIVE OAK PRESERVE The Board of Supervisors feels that it is necessary to remind the residents about what the CDD-controlled areas are for, and what restrictions are applied to the ponds and buffer areas. The conservation areas are primarily for drainage purposes. The area is ultimately controlled by the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWIFTMUD), and is part of the watershed for the Hillsborough River drainage system. As such, there is NO ACTIVITY permitted in the conservation areas. You may not cut the vegetation, use the area for the dumping of anything, or hike or ride recreational vehicles through the woods. Some trails do exist, but they are not to be accessed by the residents. The ponds are in place for flood control. They are retention ponds first and foremost, and are in NO WAY intended for recreational use. Fishing, boating and swimming are prohibited in all of the Live Oak Preserve ponds. The water quality is not monitored, and the chemicals from lawn and landscape maintenance as well as gasoline and oil residues and trash collect in the ponds via the runoff from the rain, as the storm drains all empty into the ponds. Additionally, the ponds are treated with chemicals to control the algae blooms. Alligators and other wildlife are to be left alone. It is illegal in the State of Florida to feed the alligators, or to harass them in any way. It is also illegal to feed the sandhill cranes, or any other wildlife that inhabits our area. The conservation areas provide habitat for a variety of creatures, including the endangered gopher tortoise. This is another reason why the conservation areas are off-limits to the human residents. Please be advised that entering the conservation zones, including the areas around the ponds, is trespassing, and subject to ticketing and fines. The Board of Supervisors is committed to maintain the ponds and buffer areas by mowing, managing the ponds, and keeping the trash cleaned up. Please refer any problems you see to the CDD Supervisors by contacting Andy Mendenhall at Andy.Mendenhall@stservices.com or (813)991-1116 ext. 102. We will respond promptly to all questions and concerns. Please help us by following the rules concerning the CDD-supervised areas. It will make our neighborhood better for everyone.

Feeding Children in Summer


ummer to me means fun in the sun and lounging out by the pool all day. But you may plan to have a cookout to celebrate this wonderful time of the year, or even a family vacation that you have been planning for months. This year while you’re packing your things take a look at all of the families that are not so lucky to be able to go on a vacation. Most importantly take a look at all the children who will not be able to enjoy BBQ’s and what summer has to offer. Over 22 million Children each year receive free or reduced-price meals through the national School Lunch Program. But only about 3.9 million children receive free or reduced-priced meals throughout the summer. This is why some children

dread this time of year. Low income families tend to need the financial support from both parents, so this means that while the child is home all day the parents or legal guardians are out working. This encourages children to act up and get themselves in trouble. Programs such as Feeding America provides aid for low income children and their family who face hunger throughout the summer. When school is out of session, community summer food programs make up the majority of food distributed. These programs typically receive reimbursement through the USDA Summer Food Service Program for meals provided to eligible children. Last year, the Feeding America network served 5.7 million meals to more than 178,000 hungry

children through the Summer Food Service Program, which represents a 15% growth in meals distributed from the previous summer. Donating to programs such as Feeding America ensures that a child will be able to sustain themselves until school starts back up. Locally you can donate to churches as well. Many churches have their own food bank in which a part of the surrounding community is aided by. In Florida, the summer is one of the most

difficult times for church food banks and food banks such as Feeding America. This is because we are at the beginning and prime of the year’s hurricane season. Many families flock to these programs for emergency aids. That is why many food banks collect safety gear such as flashlights and water bottles as well. America should not be going hungry. Help aid your fellow Americans in this time of need. To find your local food bank go online and search food banks with your zip code.•
