Fall 2016 Reminders:

  • PETS: Pick up after dogs.
  • LIGHTING: It is getting darker earlier and the days shorter, please check your light standards to make sure they are lighting up. If you notice an FPL Street light is out, please contact FPL at 917-0708 and report the closest address if there is no number on the post. We have had some more vehicle break ins and the more lighting we have the more of a deterrent it is for thieves.
    Halloween is coming… Safety First!
  • GARBAGE: Garbage and recycle bins cannot be put out until after 4 on Monday, and has to be taken in before 10 am Wednesday. Also please secure your recyclables as much as possible to help the contents from blowing all over the street on windy days.

    Someone has been dropping items for garbage in people’s driveways in the early hours of the morning – like 4 or 5ish. If you are out early, please keep your eyes open for this and report.

  • MAINTENANCE: We have the paint for your mailbox posts at Gary’s house. If you are going to touch up your post, please contact Gary and he will provide the paint for you. The posts are to be the same color as the front wall according to our docs. Gary’s contact info can be found here on our web site. Any exterior changes to your home or property must be approved by the Modication Committee prior to any work being done. You can request a Modication Request Form from diane@yorkmarathon.com or here on our website. Go to the modication tab to contact any of the members, the form is also located at the bottom of that page.
  • COMMUNITY REAL ESTATE: In the last 6 months we have had 5 sales. Right now we have only 1 for sale and 1 active with contract.
  • UP-COMING: Power washing the Palmer wall. Homeowners who back onto Palmer Boulevard have to make sure that all shrubbery, tree branches, and vines are not touching the wall. These items endanger the integrity of the wall and it is extremely expensive to repair, patch, and paint. We will be coming through next week to check, prior to power washing the wall. We would like to get this done by end of month. Exact date TBA. A second notice will be sent out a few days before.
  • VOLUNTEERS: Please volunteer – we have several places where you could be of service. There are board positions available. We are trying to form a social committee. There is a vacancy on the modication committee and on the ning committee.

    Get involved and meet the neighbors!

That’s it for now – Thank you! Your Board of Directors.



Please be advised that the Board of Directors has contracted a company to power wash the community’s outer wall. This company, New View, will bring any and all supplies needed. They will be taking special attention to any plants in the vicinity of the wall.

If you have any questions, please contact Diane Treharne at 941-378-0049.

Meadow Walk Notes March 2015

Important Announcements

The Annual Meeting was held in December, and your new Board of Directors include Gary Walsh, Betsy Dane, Andrew Fenton, Jordan Ramey, and Diane Treharne.

As you are aware we have retained counsel to re-write our Association documents. The documents in place are obsolete and many no longer apply. In order to properly represent the community, we would like to have at lease two homeowners join the Board members when we meet with the attorney to review the revisions. We will set the review date once we have heard from any interested homeowners.

Please contact Gary Walsh gxwals1@aol.com, or Betsy Dane bonaire110@aol.com if you would like to be a part of this review.

Remember to check this website from time to time for updates and to reach any of the Board members.

Important Reminders

  • PLEASE be sure that you have a properly functioning lamppost light in front of your house. Make a point of going outside after dark to be sure your light is working. This is not only a safety issue, but is required in our HOA documents.
  • Once again we are forced to remind everyone that ALL dogs must remain on leashes at ALL times. We know you thin YOUR dog is the best listener ever, but please, this is the law. This includes playing with dogs, not just walking them. This is NOT just for the safety of humans, but for the dogs’ safty as well! Also, please do not walk dogs close to houses, and, by the way, PLEASE don’t forget to clean up after them.
  • Please be sure your mailbox is scrubbed clean and that the post is painted. The paint color should match the community’s surrounding wall. If you have any questions please one of the Board members prior to painting.
  • PARKING ISSUES: When parking in the street (you or your guest), please remember that the law stipulates that cars must be parked in the direction of traffic. Be careful parking on curves, and please also be mindful not to interfere with your neighbor’s ability to back out of their driveways. Try not to park directly across from another car, our streets are narrow enough, and this makes driving through them very difficult. And remember, SIDEWALKS ARE FOR WALKING, NOT PARKING. You may NOR park on the grass or on sidewalks; also, please be sure your car is well within your driveway so as not to interfere with sidewalk use.
  • Amazingly this week is already the beginning of Daylight Savings Time. Remember to set your clocks ahead one hour when you go to bed Saturday, March 7th. And, if you have any lights on timers, remember to adjust them accordingly
  • Homeowners Association dues were due by the end of January. For those eight residents who have not yet submitted your payments please do so immediately.


We would like to take a moment to remember a wonderful friend and neighbor, Dolly Fenix, who passed away on January 7th.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to her son Miguel and his entire family.

  • Parking / Mailboxes

    Please remember, there is no parking allowed on the grass anywhere in the Meadow Walk Subdivision. Although you are legally allowed to park vehicles at curbside we urge you to try and avoid parking overnight on the street for safety reasons. Please refer to the Meadow Walk By-Laws for specific details.

    We've received a friendly request from our mail carrier asking that residents not block the mailboxes. This includes parking in front of or too close to the box.
