Hi! I’ve missed you! Hope everyone is staying healthy and continuing to use caution to help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
Many of the seasonal residents and renters were back this year which is one reason why the POA office continues to work remotely. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we are trying to protect you (and us) and keep everyone healthy. We appreciate your continued cooperation.
Directions for getting a vehicle barcode; lease, sale, and ARC applications; and other info and updates can be found here on the POA website and of course you can always call our office at (561) 627-2800 if you have questions or need assistance.
PLEASE UPDATE YOUR INFO:
The POA now has the ability to send PGA property owners notices via email. It is NOT the Board’s intention to regularly send email blasts but there are sometimes matters that are important to share quickly so please be sure we have your email address(es). You can drop a note at the POA office with your name, PGA address and your email address or you can email same to me at DawnL@LangManagement.com and please copy JoAnnP@LangManagement.com so we can ensure the information is updated. Remember to include your PGA Address when you respond.
ANNUAL MEETING AND ELECTIONS:
The PGA POA held the annual meeting (with masks, social distancing, sanitizers, and other protections in place). In the PGA Resort Ballroom with the potential to seat approximately 1,000 people, we spaced seating to accommodate 300. There were 73 property owners in attendance so here are some updates for those who did not attend:
Election Results: Please welcome Ginny Luongo, Jack Hughes, and Sam Boyd back for another two year term and welcome new Board member Bill Health. It was a good election with nine candidates. Thank you to all who ran for election – the residents of PGA National are lucky to have so many dedicated and qualified people wanting to serve the community. Many candidates will be joining POA Committees and will hopefully run again in the future.
Community Improvements: The POA Board of Governors have tentatively selected an artist to design the sculpture planned at the “ellipse” at the main entry to PGA National. I’ve mentioned it and some other projects for more than a year but the virus and other factors slowed the process. Over the next few months, the POA will share the design with all the residents. Funds for this work and the PGA Blvd enhancements still on the long range plans, have been collected in the annual budget’s Capital Improvements line item.
Playground: Those in residence probably noted that the playground in Burwick park has been closed for 2 months. There were some areas of rust and deterioration on the decks and a couple of the spring animals are damaged so please stay away from the play equipment. The Board is in the process of selecting new equipment for BOTH Marlwood Park and Burwick Park, but it has to be manufactured and installed so it will be a while. Residents may take children to Marlwood Park until we are able to have both play areas replaced.
Benches: The POA used to have an “In Honor Of” program where property owners could purchase a tree, plant or bench in Masters Park. The program was discontinued years ago but the benches and plants remain (of course). The benches, that were supposed to be all recycled lumber and aluminum had one metal component that failed and cannot be placed so the benches are being replaced within approximately the next 30 days.
ABOUT THE MONEY
The Board is currently working on the budget for the 2021-22 fiscal year. The new assessment notices will be mailed June 1st and the assessment to PGA POA will be due July 1st. For the past few years, the annual assessment has remained at $740.00 but at this time it appears there may be a need for a small increase. The Board deferred this last year due to the pandemic and they are doing their best to prevent an increase this year, but it might be unavoidable.
HAVE A GOOD SUMMER
For seasonal residents who are returning to your ‘northern’ homes, don’t forget to have someone available to secure your property in case of a storm. It is also critical that you remember to set your alarm (which you should always do but certainly while you are away!).
