JUNE 23 BOARD MEETING:  The next Board Meeting is scheduled for Thursday night, June 23, starting at 7 PM.  It will be held at the Association's Clubhouse at 17401 Van Dyke Farms Boulevard.  See the June 23, 2022 Board Meeting page on this website for further details.  All members are encouraged to attend. 
 
SECURITY CAMERAS ADDED TO NORTH MOBLEY ENTRANCE:  After several requests from members, Security Cameras, with active tag readers, have been added to the North Mobley Road Entrance.  These type of cameras have been very helpful in deterring and solving vandalism in the neighborhood.  There are plans to add similar cameras to the Brown Road Entrance in the near future, no later than early 2023. 
 
LINEAR PARK COMPLETED:  After nearly two years and hundreds of hours donated by NEARLY 60 VAN DYKE FARMS MEMBER VOLUNTEERS, the Linear Park near the Lake Gazebo is now complete (Click here and here).  The final clearing and mulching was completed with the help of a Clear Cut mulching on May 11, 2022!  Their machine did an amazing job of grinding the remaining stumps, brush and piles of debris.  They also mulched the other side of the street and the rest of the open area by the Linear Park.  Finally, they mulched the Association's debris pile (before) behind the Baseball Field (after).  This debris was mostly from the cleaning of the wall on North Mobley and Fitzgerald by member volunteers, before it was painted, which saved the Association several thousand dollars.  A big thanks to Board Member Jeff Thiel (Southfork) who secured and project managed the work by Clear Cut.  Please visit the park when you get a chance.  It leads to multiple trails in the adjacent wildlife area.  For all those who participated, and anyone else interested, here is a chronological set of photos that show the Before, During and After of the Project!!!  Before Lake Gazebo, South of Lake, North of Lake; First Volunteer Day (7.12.2022); 10.3.2020 Volunteer Day (1), (2), (3), and (4); 10.10.2020 Volunteer Day (1), (2), (3) and (4); 10.14.2020 Volunteer Day (1) and (2); 10.17.2020 Volunteer Day (1), (2) and (3); 10.23.2020 Volunteer Day (1); 12.2.2022 Volunteer Day (1) and (2); 3.17.2021 Grading (1), (2), (3) and (4); 3.18.2021 Hydroseeding (1) and (2); 3.27.2021 Added Irrigation Zone; 8.2021 Linear Park; 2.2.2020 Linear Park extension before looking north and south; 2.5.2022 Volunteer Day (1), (2) and (3); 3.24.2022 Volunteer Day (1), (2) and (3); and, 5.11.2022 Completion Day (1), (2) and (3)!  Thanks to all who participated!
 
NEW TRASH BINS ADDED:   The Association has purchased and installed four new trash bin retainers.  They are installed throughout the Playground and Clubhouse Area.
 
CLUBHOUSE OBSERVATION DECK REPAIRED:  The Association contracted with Arrys Roofing to replace the Clubhouse Observation Deck roofing.  The Observation deck is a wonderful asset for the Community.  The Clubhouse Restrooms, Water Fountain, Throughway and Observation Deck (click here, here and here) are for the enjoyment of all members and their guests.  Access is by key only or if the outer doors are open for use of others.  Please visit the Clubhouse Key Application Page on this website for instructions as to how to acquire a key.  A special thanks to Board Member Chris Velar (Trails) for managing this project.  
 
CLUBHOUSE LOCKS SECURED:  The Association has added steel plates to the two Clubhouse iron doors to prevent those who were jimming the locks with an assortment of tools.  This has secured the locks.  Yea!  
 
SIDEWALK SURVEY UPDATED:  The Association has completed an updated Sidewalk Survey and has forwarded it to Hillsborough County for repairs.  The County continues to have a large backlog but hopefully can get to these repairs in the next 12 months.  Please visit the Sidewalk Survey Page on this website for photos of the sidewalk repairs needed.  If we missed any please send a photo with location to lcoleman@greenacre.com.  
 
SECOND PICKLEBALL COURT ADDED:  On June 14 Welch Tennis added pickleball lines to Tennis Court 7.   Pickleball's popularity continues to rise and the Association now has two courts.  Hope to see you all out playing!
 
A WONDERFUL SPRING OUTING:  A big thanks to the scores of families that participated in the Association's 2022 Spring Outing.  There was a huge turnout and lots of fun.  The crowd started gathering at 12:30 to play at the playground (click here and here).  Face painting was provided and so many in attendance received wonderful designs (click here, here, here, here and here)!  A mobile Kona Ice truck provided refreshments that many enjoyed (click here)!  Before the event the Easter Eggs were "hidden"!  The hunt began at 1:30 sharp (click here).  The hunt was for children ten (10) and under, and they had a great time (click here, here, here and here).  Kickball and pickleball then followed (click here, here and here) and was followed by a special Van Dyke Farms visit by the Easter Bunny (click here, here and here).  A great time was had by all!  Special thanks to Elizabeth Montante (Trails), and Jessica Dashner (Meadows), the Association's Social Events Coordinators, who organized the event for the second consecutive year!  Hope to see all of you at the event again next Spring!
