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:

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.

South Bay HOA Email System

Dear fellow South Bay Resident,

South Bay HOA has been working to improve communication with our residents. Previously, we have used traditional and certified mail, our web site, some telephone calls, personal visits, and the “South Bay Alert” (neighborhood watch) email system that Judy Chandler has built and manages.

In an effort to streamline official communications, South Bay will be utilizing Constant Contact as our email platform for essential resident communications. Such emails will be from the Board or our committees and will be sent with a subject line of “SBHOA – (Subject)”. Emails may be sent primarily by me as President or Beth Blanton as Constant Contact Administrator. We will only send important notices – no one wants to have their email box filled with junk mail from their HOA.

Your privacy is extremely important to us. SBHOA will not provide your email to any outside entity. You gave your email address to us for use by the Board, committees, or South Bay Alerts. If you choose, you may opt out of receiving future emails from SBHOA by clicking below.

As a final component for facilitating communications between the Board and homeowners, we are asking you to provide your home and cellular telephone numbers. As with your email address, the telephone numbers will only be used for important communications from the Board and committees and will not be given to outside agencies. Access to telephone numbers is important, especially for the ARB. Many HOA issues can be resolved simply with a single phone call, reducing the time consuming process of sending notices by mail. Please provide your home and cellular numbers by return email.

Your Board and committees are looking forward to providing our homeowners with timely and important material using the new email system.

Bert Del Villano
