Recent Community Letter
This quarters' Community letter references the May 2013 Rules and Regulations workshops. The scope of those workshops was to begin the update on the LORHOA Rules and Regulations. While none of these drafted rules changes took effect, it was a great starting point, and produced this working draft.
Feedback may range from a tweak, to a complete rewrite -- so dig in and enjoy the pleasure of being part of the process. The document is on opensource format, so you may need to save it locally, and open it from your word processor application.
The final draft to be approved will be mailed to all Lots a minimum of 30 days prior to the November Board meeting -- at which time the Board will vote on the proposed changes.
Florida Black Bear
From time to time, Florida Black Bear are seen through the community. Florida Black Bear are a protected species, and are not a nuisance animal that may be removed by the HOA, the City, or the County. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission should be contacted if a bear appears violent.
Educational material may be found at:

The short of it is -- we and the bears must co-habitate, so please put your trash out Wednesday morning, and be mindful of bird feeders, deer feeders, etc...

Community Garage Sale
The Community Garage Sale dates are being adjusted to the first Saturday in May, and November. Over the past few years, we have attempted to stabilize and communicate the garage sale dates well in advance for planning purposes. Regrettably, we have run into the Taste of Oviedo (March), Easter (April), and this year, Yom Kippur (October).
The first Saturday of preferred because the tornado siren test signifies the "unofficial end" of the traffic chaos that accompanies the garage sale. People usually clear out when they hear the siren at noon.
Thank you everyone for your flexibility and understanding. We hope to not run into future runnings of the Great day in the Country event...
More than half of our residents stay connected through the E-newsletter -- Thank you !
On a monthly basis, our property manager mass emails a brief newsletter that includes upcoming dates and events. Additionally, if important news needs to immediately get out to the community (missing person, black bear, storm response, etc...) the eblast system is used to rapidly disseminate information.
