2021 Notices and Reminders for Our Community

As we enter 2021 your South Bay HOA board would like to wish all residents a Happy New Year.

The SBHOA board works around the clock to keep our community safe and well-maintained for all of our residents and their visitors.

We would like to outline some general notices and reminders for our wonderful residents below.

Off-Duty Sheriff Deputies

Our South Bay HOA dues do not just go towards keeping the community looking beautiful, they also support the off-duty Sheriff Deputies which keep our community safe during the morning through evening hours. Please give them a friendly wave when passing by and if you feel that they have not been present in your area of South Bay please contact the HOA with your concerns.

Tennis Courts

Due to COVID and the beautiful weather in Central Florida, our tennis courts have been experiencing a high volume of usage. Please remember that they are for residents only and that guests need to be accompanied by a resident. Any visitor using the courts without a resident will be asked to leave.

Walking Paths

There are no motorized or electric vehicles allowed on the walking paths or common areas in South Bay. Please be careful and courteous to others on the walking paths when using them. If you or your children choose to ride bicycles on the paths, please watch your speed and be vigilant of other patrons using the paths.

Common Grounds

Please contact the grounds committee with any concerns you may have about South Bay common areas by using our website southbayhoa.org. If you see any areas in disrepair or that may need attention such as planters, trees, or fencing – please let the grounds committee know. We maintain all of these items as frequently as possible but residents who see these areas often may be able to let us know when items need to be taken care of directly.

HOA Meetings

We encourage residents to please attend any scheduled HOA meetings that they can in order to stay in touch with your HOA board and happenings around the community. Your SBHOA board feels that it’s important for residents to be involved and stay informed. We will continue virtual Zoom meetings in 2021 for all who wish to attend. Information is always updated on our website southbayhoa.org.

We hope you have a wonderful year ahead and we look forward to keeping our community safe and beautiful at all times.

Hurricane Information & Safety

As hurricane season approaches many homeowners have asked the board about hurricane preparedness and information.

SBHOA has a checklist you may view on the website at any time which is very helpful in planning for hurricanes as well as listing needed items to have in case of emergency. View it here.

Remember that the SBHOA website has online links for the Orange County Sheriffs Office as well as the local energy companies on the bottom of the page.

Latest official hurricane tracks and info can be accessed at the official NOAA website: nhc.noaa.gov

Lake Tibet Dock Repairs

UPDATE: This project was completed.

The community dock on Lake Tibet will be closed for repairs beginning Monday, June 3, 2019.

We expect the dock will be reopened for use in late June 2019.

Dock Refurbishment 2018

UPDATE: This project was completed.

The Board will repair the roof of the gazebo at the community dock and will add downcast lighting during the Fall of 2018.  The dock may be closed temporarily during the work.

New Document Updates

Two new documents have been added to the website. One is a brand new document for the new exterior paint guidelines which were approved by the board and are to be used in 2018 and beyond. The other addition is an edited Architectural Review Board Planning Criteria document which now has included explicit watercraft verbiage regarding storage and parking.

Both items can be viewed on the Architectural Review Board page.

The welcome packet has also been updated.

Minutes have also been added for the April 2018 annual HOA meeting. If you are a homeowner and do not know the password please email Bert DelVillano, HOA President.

Dock Refurbishment

As of July 2017 the South Bay homeowner dock refurbishment has been completed and residents may begin to use the dock for recreational purposes.
