SEMI-ANNUAL TRIMMING OF ENTRANCE SIGNS PALM TREES – Mr. Bouras informed the Board that the palm trees at the Ashley Park entrance signs were trimmed. Mr. Wasylowsky noted that the annuals at the second entrance are growing tall and covering the sign lettering. Mr. Lindblom suggested using Vinca plants or similar plants that do not grow very tall to avoid the situation where the annuals cover significant portion of the entrance sign.

Yulia Balyberdina addressed the Board regarding the “Leash Your Dog” sign to be installed at the park. It was noted that the sign is already installed together with the pet waste station.
Yulia Balyberdina also addressed the Board regarding speeding on Swordfish Drive and asked if it is possible to install a speed humps on Shorewind Drive. Mr. Lindblom answered that speed humps are regulated by the county since these are public roads and there are certain criteria where speed humps can be installed. Swordfish Drive is a curving road making a loop and there is insufficient straight sections to meet the county’s criteria to install a speed hump.
One of the Ashley Park homeowners addressed the Board regarding a new homeowner who just purchased a home in Ashley Park and who was charged in the past with sexual crimes. Does the Board perform screening of the prospective buyers in Ashley Park? Mr. Lindblom answered that only prospective renters are being screened, there is no screening process for prospective buyers.
Yulia Balyberdina asked when the Board Meetings will be held in person. Mr. Lindblom answered that for now while not most of the population vaccinated yet the Board Meetings will remain virtual.
