Hurricane Dorian Update #2

We hope that once Hurricane Dorian begins its long awaited move to the north and closer to Hilton Head it begins to weaken and passes far enough off the coast to not be a serious threat or cause severe damage.  The old motto of “prepare for the worst and hope for the best” certainly applies here.  We do know that we will certainly be affected.  While we still cannot be sure of the actual track the storm will take, we have prepared the best we can and applied the lessons we have learned through Hurricane Matthew.  We have recently cleaned all the road basins, ditches and made other alterations for improved drainage throughout the property.  The pool complex will be completely secured tomorrow, and the fitness center will available in case of emergencies to ride out the storm for any of those who may have chosen to not evacuate.  We ask once again that you make sure everything around your villa is taken inside or properly secured so it will not become a danger in high winds.  We have all the proper contractors on standby to assist the property in the event they are needed once the storm passes.  Updates will be sent out as soon as possible once the storm has passed, and everyone STAY SAFE!

Hurricane Dorian

As you all know, Hurricane Dorian will impact the Southeast coastline this weekend and through the beginning of next week.  At this point landfall somewhere in Florida is the likely target.  While it is yet to be determined where an exact landfall will take place, along with the future path, we are relatively confident that we will be receiving significant rain and possibly storm force winds.  We are preparing by lowering lagoon water levels and clearing all drainage ditches in anticipation of heavy rainfall.  We urge everyone to keep an eye on the forecast and be prepared.  We ask that you take in or secure any outdoor items such as patio furniture, plants, etc. that can be affected by possible high winds.  Be safe and given the circumstances, have the best Labor Day Holiday possible!

Amenities Pass

Please come to the office during normal working hours and check your amenities pass for the use of the fitness center, swimming pool, and tennis courts. A new gate control system has been installed and we would like to make sure your amenities pass still works.

Community Picnic Rescheduled

Due to the threat of continuing severe weather the 2019 Annual Community Picnic has been rescheduled for Sunday, June 16th, from 3 to 6 PM. Bring Come and try to win one of the many raffle prizes we have this year, Maybe Dad will win the grand prize of a large flat screen TV!

Woodlake will be supplying the burgers, hot dogs, buns, condiments, chips, and beverages. Attendees are asked to bring side dishes and desserts. Please add the picnic to your Father’s Day activities and we hope to see you all then!!

 

Speeding Complaints

We are receiving many complaints of residents and or guests driving way too fast in Woodlake. We have many children living in Woodlake that are always playing games in the parking lot and frequently running out into the road from in between cars. Anyone seen by our Community Relations Officer or employees driving too fast in Woodlake may have their parking privileges suspended or revoked.  If we can’t get the speeding under control with the cooperation of all residents, we will be forced to add more speed bumps to slow everyone down.

Pet Complaints

Many of our residents are still complaining about pet owners who are not picking up after their pets in the common areas or dog run area. This has been and continues to be a major problem here at Woodlake. Pet owners who do not clean up after their pets will be issued appropriate fines and may have their common area pet privileges revoked and will be required to take their pets off the property to do their business. Cleaning up after your pet shows that you respect your neighbors and your community. If you see anyone not cleaning up after their pet anywhere on the property, please report this to the on-site office.  Once again, we respectfully ask that all dog owners pick-up after their pet after they have done their business.

2019 Annual Community Picnic

Summer is just around the corner and the Woodlake Villas Board of Directors has started planning for the Woodlake Community Picnic. This year’s community picnic will be held on Sunday, June 9th. Between 3:00-6:00 PM. So, save this date for good food, lots of fun and great prizes! Future notices will be sent out closer to the date of the picnic. Hope to see you all there.

Parking Lot Repaving

TO ALL WOODLAKE RESIDENTS:

WOODLAKE WILL BEGIN AN ASPHALT REPAVING PROJECT OF THE ROADWAYS AND PARKING AREAS ON THE PROPERTY BEGINNING MARCH 7 (WEATHER PERMITTING).

THIS PROJECT WILL INVOLVE HAVING TO CLOSE OFF SECTIONS OF THE ROAD AND PARKING AREAS FOR 24 TO 48 HOURS WHILE THE NEW ASPHALT COATING IS APPLIED AND HAS TIME TO PROPERLY DRY.  NEW PARKING STRIPES WILL BE PAINTED AND THE SECTIONS WILL THEN BE RE-OPENED.  WE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS WILL BE A MAJOR INCONVENIENCE AS YOU WILL HAVE TO PARK AWAY FROM AND WALK TO YOUR VILLA.  MAKE SURE YOUR PARKING STICKERS ARE UP TO DATE SO OTHER RESIDENTS KNOW THAT IT IS A PROPER WOODLAKE RESIDENT PARKING IN THEIR AREAS.  DURING THE PROJECT, CERTAIN SECTIONS OF THE DRIVE LANES MAY BECOME ONE-WAY AND PARKING SPOTS IN THE AREAS THAT REMAIN OPEN WILL BE IN HIGH DEMAND AND VERY LIMITED.

NOTICE:  WHEN THIS PROJECT IS IN YOUR AREA OF THE PROPERTY, ALL VEHICLES MUST BE MOVED OUT OF THE DESIGNATED PROJECT AREA.  ANY VEHICLE THAT IS NOT REMOVED FROM THE PROJECT AREA WILL BE TOWED TO A DIFFERENT AREA OF THE PROPERTY AT THE VEHICLE OWNERS COST.  PLEASE HELP US AVOID ANY TOWING BY MOVING YOUR VEHICLES WHEN NOTIFIED. 

 PLEASE DO NOT WALK (OR DRIVE) ON THE NEWLY PAVED AREAS UNIT THEY ARE OPENED BACK UP TO VEHICLE AND PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC. IF YOUR VEHICLE HAS FLUID LEAKS OF ANY KIND, (OIL, GAS, DIESEL, TRANSMISSION FLUID, ETC.) PLEASE GET THEM FIXED BEFORE THE REPAVING PROJECT STARTS. FLUIDS OF THIS TYPE WILL QUICKLY DAMAGE THE NEW ASPHALT. FAILURE TO MAKE ANY NECESSARY REPAIRS TO YOUR VEHICLE WILL RESULT IN FINES BEING ISSUED AND PARKING PERMITS REVOKED.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PROJECT IS SUBJECT TO WEATHER CONDITIONS AND DELAYS.  EVERY EFFORT WILL BE MADE TO COMPLETE THE PROJECT AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE WITH THE LEAST AMOUNT OF INCONVENIENCE AS POSSIBLE.

A NOTIFICATION WILL BE SENT WHEN YOUR AREA IS TO BE PAVED.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION AND PATIENCE WITH THE CONTRACTORS AND YOUR NEIGHBORS WHILE THIS PROJECT IS PERFORMED.
