In keeping with the promise made for openness and transparency, I’d like
to share with you some of our accomplishments and plans for further
enhancements in our community, with homeowner satisfaction in mind. Some of
the enhancements are not new and not unfamiliar, but a return of some of the
niceties, which became neglected and curtailed in the past. This Board will
work continuously and consciously to make our Isles of Tamarac become an
Hard to believe, seventy-five percent of this year is already
past. The ancient Roman poet, Virgil, coined a Latin phrase, “Tempus Fugit.”
It translates to, “Time Flies.” We, in modern times, add something to that
phrase: we say, “Time Flies When You’re Having Fun.” However, as far as this
year is concerned, continuing external circumstances not entirely within our
control make this phrase a mixed bag.
Covid 19 has adversely
affected our lives in one way or another.
Originally, the theme of this
message was ‘A Summer of Hope;’ after what looked like endless limitations
of social life, with little or no events to attend; it seemed that we would
be able to hang-out at the movies and theaters and, looked forward to
visiting friends and family, without having to use zoom; there are those
among us who were hoping to be able to ‘smell the rain’ again.
after seeing Covid 19 on the decline Covid 19 cases started to increase
causing CDC reversed itself July 27, 2021, its latest Guidance, is that even
vaccinated people must, maintain Covid 19 protocols, because the Delta
variant is more than 2 times as contagious.
Using reasonable and
necessary caution, soon we will have a Sunday Morning breakfast – takeout
instead of our annual sit-in BBQ.
Although we accomplished several
important and worthwhile projects, from mitigating the flooding of our
clubhouse parking lot, new commercial grade pool umbrellas, sealing the pool
deck, upgrading the landscape at the main entrance to the clubhouse, to
painting our community markers, there is more to be done. As we discussed
before, there continues to be a variety of projects we aim to accomplish.
Among them are:
An updated and complete phone directory (perhaps on our
website with individual password access); §Updating our RED BOOK in sections
and with your input;
Increase approved ADA Parking spaces, seal and stripe
the Parking Lot;
§ Formation of an area with picnic benches south of the
pool for the homeowners who would like to hangout by the pool, but not in
Creation of a PLAYBOOK for Elections that will be ready for the 2022
Elections - Let me mention that the 2021 Board will be setting a
precedent by giving notices early, for potential candidates for the 2022
Board and recruiting Election Committee members.
It is worth
repeating what I wrote in my first letter after the elections. I look
forward to working with the Board and you, our homeowners. I ask for your
participation, your encouragement, your ideas and your suggestions. The
future we’re all striving for now, will bring out pleasant memories of the
good accomplishments we achieved together. With mutual respect, integrity,
and transparency, together we’ll be able to maintain a community we can
enjoy and be proud of.
Please always remember, before we’re
considered members of the current Board, we are first and foremost
homeowners at the Isles of Tamarac, just like all other 275 families.
With Kindest Regards,
Keith Hood, President
