Myself and others would like to know any experiences others have with people getting quotes and information about building and installing sheds. Please email me (Robin: steameng1@cox.net) any company names and phone numbers with your findings on the pros and cons of each company including any price comparisons.

The recent two powerful storms sure knocked down lots of tree limbs and a few trees in Hunters Trace.  It is advisible that we all inspect our trees for rotten areas and have them inspected and trimmed to prevent damage to your property or your neighbors property. One resident had $4,000 damage due to neighbors trees falling into his back yard.  

  

Our Deer friends:

 

New Windows?  My house is now 29 years old and needed new windows since the screens did not fit, permanent mold was on some edges, and some of the double pane glass had the seal broken.  After three quotes, I went with Window World.  There price was best and their windows had all the features I wanted with the options including energy efficiency.  The installation took 2 days and was suprisingly neat with do paint touch up required.  If anyone wants to talk about my experience, call me. Robin Corsiglia 352-804-4690.

We had our Hunters Trace Homeowners meeting – Saturday, March 19, 2022 and agreed to keep up the Hunters Trace Homeowners Association with a vote.  Now the new paperwork will be sent to Tallahassee for approval.  After approval, we will send out to each homeowner the list of each requested change to our Declartion of Restructions and Maintenance and /or our By-Laws and you will be able to vote Yes or No for each change. 

Be sure and submit your wanted changes now before the list is made and sent out for voting. 

After the votes have been counted, we will have another meeting to dicuss the vote and changes .

No date yet for this meeting.

Our President just called me and said we have a Secretary for Hunters Trace Homeowners – Summer Roth.

Kevin Boutwell our president also told me that no one has submitted any ideas for changes to our rules as was asked for at our last meeting.  We really need this input quickly.

Some items he said might be wanted are: Allowing Sheds with restrictions, Allowing Boats, a more detailed description of what is allowed in the front yards of properties and tree trimming.

So if you want any of these to be voted on shortly or can add other items that we can all vote on, please email Kevin Boutwell-  kpb1955@cox.net.  He is expecting to hear back from the state on accepting our Articles of Incorporation of Hunters Trace Homeowners Association - or – The By-Laws of Hunters Trace Homeowners Association, Inc. (not sure which one the state approves).

Also The Fence along NE 7th Street was built by the developer and belongs to the Hunters Trace Homeowners.  We may need to get Right of Easement from each property owner so changes and update can be performed.

On 10/11/2021 about 5:30 pm, I saw a neighbor running around the street about 130 feet North of my mailbox and the saw a shiny rattle snake in the middle of the road.  I grabbed my shovel and ran up to help. The neighbor brought out a long handled shovel and killed the snake.  I asked him to cut off the head.  I cut off the rattles to save.  Now I am worried about my dogs and will look hard for more rattle snakes.

 

 

Our HOA meeting today (9/18/2021) approved keeeping Hunters Trace HOA.  We now have 30 days to send all the info to the state and they have 60 days to accept our HOA with no changes.  Then we each can submit the changes we want to the HOA and all residents will get the chance to vote on each change.

Hunters Trace HOA Changes 

******************************************************************************

For years there have been residents of Hunters Trace that wanted changes to our Declaration of Restrictions and Maintenance Covenant and/or our Buy-Laws.

Our Board of Directors have been working toward making changes that our residents want and have an attorney from Klein and Klein advising them and working with them.

This is what will happen:

Everyone should have already signed for a complete package of our old current Covenant and By-Laws.  Next we will have a meeting to vote to see if we want to have a HOA or not.  If yes, some papers need to be sent to the state and county for approval.  Next, we will have a listing of changes we want and then a meeting to have a vote on each change.  The result of this vote will be our new Covenant and By-Laws.  There is no time frame of when these will be done.

After my talk with our board President Kevin Boutwell, I have taken notes and show below what is expected to happen to have our residents vote on any changes.

Step #1: Complete

The board will be handing out information for the residents to have a vote on whether they want to change our current restrictions and/ By-Laws.  This process must be formally documented with signatures as to yes or no for changes.  The changes are not defined in this step.  If the answer is yes to make changes, the formal papers to ask for the authority to make changes must be submitted to the State and they have 60 days to approve it.  Then it goes to the county and they have 30 days to approve it.

Step #2:

There will be a Hunters Trace Homeowners meeting to discuss and make a listing on what items we want to change.  This list in only expect to be about 5 or 6 items.  A few items discussed so far might be should we allow sheds in the back yard, should we allow boats in the back yard, should we change the type of fences permitted in Hunters Trace.  Each of these would have their own restrictions such as size and color that will be described in each item to be voted upon.

Step #3:

There will be a Hunters Trace Homeowners meeting to actually vote on each item on the change list with a 2/3 vote required for each item to pass.  This will be voted by proxy with a sealed secret ballot box.  The board with 3 volunteer residents to watch will then open the ballet box and the votes will be counted for each item listed.  

 

If anyone sees changes in my above description of HOA Changes, let me know and I will change the wording.

You can access and read the current Declaration of Restrictions and Maintenance Covenant and our Buy-Laws on this web page under Deed Restrictions.

This was the greatest Christmas gift ever --  to get our Nate back.  Apparently, he accidentally hitched a ride in somebody's car or truck because he was about 10 miles from our house.
