SEA BLUE TRAIL SPEED HUMP – Mr. Lindblom informed the Board that he was invited and attended the August 2, 2018 Boca Winds Board Meeting where a large group of Water’s Edge Enclave (Boca Winds) homeowners were in attendance and expressed their strong opposition to the installation of a speed hump on Sea Blue Trail. The Board Members discussed this matter in length and confirmed that the Ashley Park supports the installation of the speed hump on Sea Blue Trail and they hope the Boca Winds Board does not change their decision supporting installation of the speed hump. Boca Winds Board President Paul Pontrelli was present at this Ashley Park Board Meeting and informed the Ashley Park Board that this matter will be discussed again at the next Boca Winds Board Meeting in September. Mr. Pontrelli also informed the Ashley Park Board that the Boca Winds attorney was contacted and asked if the Boca Winds Association could be liable if the Boca Winds Board reversed its speed hump installation approval.
Mr. Maida informed the Board that there has been a lawsuit in the past where one association wanted to install a speed hump and a neighboring association was against the installation. Mr. Maida stated the courts ruled in favor of installation of the speed hump since it was a matter of safety.
