[ News from pebble creek village ]

Letter from the PCVHOA President Dear Neighbors, We’ve now completed our first objective and, as of October 1st, 2013, have contracted with University Properties, Inc., (UPI). UPI will be responsible for management of the association. The Board of Directors will oversee the management company and give them direction regarding deed restrictions. UPI will not send any homeowner violators to our attorney, for a possible lien on the property, until they receive approval from the Board. For appointments and correspondence with UPI, call Angela Hester, 813-980-1000, or e-mail ahester@univprop.com. The Board has reviewed the fee we are charged for maintenance of the pool and athletic areas. The amount that we are assessed includes far more than just the pool and athletic areas. Use of the community center, administrative services, community improvements, storage of our files (which must be kept on file for 7 years) etc. are all part of the pool assessment fees. We have negotiated a 10% reduction of these fees beginning January 2014. We are responsible for maintaining uncut lawns, debris removal, etc. from properties that are in foreclosure and not as yet taken over by a lending institution. This adds to our costs and decreases our revenue unless we can collect monies on these properties. If the property owner isn’t available and will not pay for all expenses incurred, any amount owed to the association is turned over to our attorney for collection and filing of a lien on the property, if necessary. In reviewing our budget, we’re looking at the current cost of services and the projected cost increases for 2014 and it will be necessary to increase dues approximately $50 per year. If our association doesn’t remain solvent (in the black), the state will appoint an attorney to manage it. It is our understanding that the attorney appointed will have the power to do whatever is necessary to make our HOA solvent and have a positive cash flow. This would NOT be in our best interest. We are in need of several new Board members for 2014. We also need volunteers to distribute the Pebble Creek Community Newsletter each month (delivering the newsletter to your neighbors will only take about an hour of your time). Thanks for your consideration. Stan Chmura President, PCVHOA

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

Vegetables: Plant crops now that will grow and produce throughout the winter months. This includes beet, Brussels sprout, carrot, and onion.

What to Plant

Lawn weeds: The best time to control winter weeds in lawns is before they appear. Pre-emergent herbicides must be applied when nighttime temps are 55°F-60°F for 4-5 days to be effective. Fertilize ornamental trees and shrubs: This is the last month of the year to fertilize plants that aren’t performing as desired. Controlled-release fertilizer provides nutrients over a longer period of time.

Fertilize Bahia and St. Augustine lawns: Choose a fertilizer (not a weed & feed) with little or no phosphorus unless a soil test indicates the need for it. A fertilizer with controlledrelease nitrogen will give longer lasting results. This is the last fertilization for these lawn types for the year. Strawberries: Prepare beds and set strawberry plants this month. Strawberries also make a colorful and tasty container planting. Either way provide daily watering until plants are established. Winter landscapes: Evergreen hollies and their bright berries add color to the landscape when other plants have died back for the winter. Water well when planting and mulch to minimize weeds. Twig girdlers: Small branches falling from oak and hickory trees may be the work of twig girdlers. To control, clean up and destroy fallen branches,

Irrigation must be accomplished prior to 8:00 am or after 6:00 pm. Any one zone of a property may only be watered once during the allowable day, NOT both in the morning and evening. These rules apply to all sources of water including well water and surface water. The schedule is:

Addresses ending in the number 0, 1, 2 or 3: Mondays and/or Thursdays only Addresses ending in the number 4, 5, or 6: Tuesdays and/or Fridays only Addresses ending in the number 7, 8, or 9: Wednesdays and/or Saturdays only Locations with no address (common areas, entry areas) Wednesdays and/or Saturdays only Locations with mixed addresses (office complexes, shopping centers) Wednesdays and/or Saturdays only New Lawns and Landscaping On days 1-30, beginning on the day of installation, new plant material including turf grass may be watered any day of the week.

Following this period all new plant material is considered established and must follow the two day per week restrictions outlined above. All watering of new lawns and landscaping must take place before 8:00 a.m. or after 6:00 p.m. NOTE: All new plant material (new or replacement turf grass or new plants/shrubs) must cover at least 50 percent of an irrigation zone in order to water with an in-ground sprinkler system during the establishment period.

week restrictions for new plant establishment. (Example: If you purchased one flat of grass plugs to place throughout your front yard to fill in bare spots, this would not cover 50 percent of an irrigation zone. Hand watering would be required.) Also, only those zones containing 50 percent new plant material may be watered, not the entire yard. (Example: If you had your entire front yard re-sodded, but not your backyard, only those zones covering the front yard could be run during the establishment period. The backyard zones would have to remain on the regular watering schedule. Most irrigation timers have an A & B program. Program A can be set for the regular watering. Program B can be programmed for multiple days to only water those zones containing the new plant material during the establishment period.)

Low Volume Irrigation

Low volume irrigation is defined as a maximum of a halfgallon per minute (30 gallons per hour) per emitter. Low volume irrigation is not approved for lawns or turf grass. Low volume irrigation of plant materials other than lawns and grass is allowed any day, however, you must water before 8;00 a.m. or after 6:00 p.m. The use must not be wasteful and unnecessary.

Hand Watering

Hand-watering and low-volume irrigation of plant material other than lawns or turf grass may be done on any day and at any time.

Chemical Treatment

If chemicals such as pesticides, fertilizer, herbicides, insecticides and fungicides are applied to your lawn or landscape plants by a certified professional applicator, they can be watered in according to manufacturer’s instructions within 24 hours of the chemical treatment, the evening of the application, or the morning afterward. Applying water following a chemical treatment by a certified professional applicator is allowable on your nondesignated watering day provided a dated chemical advisory marker showing the date of application is visible in the yard. All such watering must be prior to 8:00 am or after 6:00 pm. If you apply a chemical treatment to your lawn or landscape plants yourself, the watering in of those chemicals must be done on your designated watering day for your address prior to 8:00 a.m. or after 6:00 p.m.

Car Washing, Pressure Washing and Fountains No restrictions at this time.

Irrigation System Maintenance

Irrigation systems may be operated during restricted hours for cleaning and maintenance purposes, but limited to 10 minutes per week. An attendant must remain visibly on site during the entire cleaning and maintenance operation.

PEBBLE CREEK NEWS / OCTOBER 2013


Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at USF Offers Classes at Pebble Creek Community Center In the fall of 2010, Pebble Creek residents Steve Priest and Eileen Brennan were simply trying to make one less trip down Bruce B. Downs Boulevard to USF and also experience something of educational substance in New Tampa. The couple had been members of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of South Florida (OLLI) since 2007 and had attended scores of classes and educational programs held on the USF campus or elsewhere in Hillsborough County. Together, they approached OLLI coordinator Joseph McAuliffe and sold him on the idea that the kind of college-level academic programming that OLLI offers would find a great reception in New Tampa, and they knew precisely the venue to recommend. They set up a meeting for Joseph with Tina Rustin who administrates the Pebble Creek Community Center and soon after, an educational partnership was born. This fall, the PCCC will host two classes: Political Murder and

Mayhem with Bill Heath that will be held on Tuesdays from 10am to noon beginning Oct. 1 thru Nov. 5 and AustriaHungary: History, Culture and Fate of the Empire with Fred Barthmus from 1pm to 3pm, Oct. 8 thru Nov. 12. For more information on these and other OLLI-USF classes, call Joseph McAuliffe at 813-974-5166 or check out www. usfseniors.org.
