Deer Lakes Owners’ Association
From the Board of Directors, Deer Lakes
Greetings Deer Lakes residents.
As we are all aware, 2020 has been a challenging year. With the outbreak of COVID 19, stay home orders, school closings, cancelled graduation ceremonies, cancelled Proms, etc. we have all surely had a little added stress. Hopefully, these times are soon to be behind us and we can get back to normal.
We would like to give a quick briefing on the current state of the community, so to speak. Since this board took office, there have been quite a few items accomplished, to include replacement of the entrance gates and actuators, pool cabana roof, playground area brought into compliance, major pool leak repair, reinstating of a Finance Committee, and coordinating the approval of working on a traffic signal at our entrance. Just to name a few items.
Traffic Signal. The board unanimously approved to move forward with the granting of Temporary Construction Easement to allow for the developer of Crossroads Village to begin construction of the traffic signal. However, this does not mean that the signal is guaranteed. There is still a deficit in funding that Brevard County will have to allocate. This has not yet happened. Now that the board has approved to move forward, the developer is able to go to the county and work to gain that funding. Again, this is not a final outcome. Until county funding is made available, the light construction is on hold. This signal will come at no cost to Deer Lakes Residents. It will require the loss of the exit lanes median to make way for the left turn lane and greatly improve the safety of exiting our community.
Lastly, the board would like to remind residents of the need to adhere to our current Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CCR). With COVID-19, many home improvement projects, the loss of Graduation ceremonies and such, the board has relaxed on enforcement of the signage restrictions as well as other covenant restrictions that are in place to keep Deer Lakes the beautiful community we cherish. In August, we will move forward with our monthly inspections and hopefully, business as usual. THEREFORE, WE ASK THAT ALL GRADUATE, STUDENT RECOGNITION, AND ANY OTHER NON-APPROVED SIGNS ARE REMOVED BY AUGUST 10TH, 2020. AFTER THIS DATE, ALL CCRS WILL BE ENFORCED.
In addition, we would like to bring to attention sections 14, 17, and 18 of the Covenants. Section 14 refers to parking, Section 17 to signs, and 18 to garbage and recycling cans. Please review these sections in full at https://www.deerlakes.org.
