DISCUSS BLUE TARP AT 22646 SEA BASS DRIVE – The Board Members discussed this matter and agreed to support the ACC decision to deny this request based on the facts that this structure is not permanently attached, it is not a neutral color and it is visible from the street.

CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT COMMITTEE REPORT
VINCE MAIDA PARK TREE PLANTING AND LANDSCAPING UPDATE – The board members agreed that trees that were installed at Vince Maida Park look beautiful. The board also discussed future possible projects including playground update and the best ways to organize a poll for homeowners to vote on the future projects through the Web side or via an annual mailing.
OLD BUSINESS AND NEW BUSINESS
One of the Ashley Park homeowners Yulia Balyberdina addressed the board regarding the condition of the playground equipment informing the Board that the playground in its current condition is not an amenity to the community and the Board should consider making the playground renovation a priority. The Board Members discussed this matter. It was noted that since the playground renovation is an expensive project, the Board decided to postpone it at this time but it doesn’t mean that this project is forgotten.
Yulia Balyberdina also addressed the board regarding the additional maintenance costs of the newly installed walking path and landscaping at the Vince Maida Park and possibility of sharing these costs with the neighboring communities. It was noted that each association is bearing maintenance costs for the amenities that belong to them.
Yulia Balyberdina also asked if there is a way to contact the PBCSO contract deputies patrolling the Ashley Park community. The Board responded that if it is a non-emergency issue she should call the PBCSO non-emergency number and call 911 if there is an emergency.
Yulia Balyberdina wanted to know when the Board is planning to resume the regular face-to-face Board Meetings and how the homeowners can contact management. Mr. Lindblom answered that it will depend on the COVID-19 situation – he would like to see the numbers of cases in the area go down before the Board resumes face-to-face meetings. The homeowners can contact management through the Ashley Park Website and by calling and/or e-mailing the management office.
Mr. Lindblom made a motion to adjourn the Board Meeting at 7:40 pm. The motion was seconded by Mr. Wasylowsky and unanimously approved by the Board.
