As many of you know, the Board of Directors has been facing numerous problems with Commercial Style Trucks being parked in the neighborhood overnight for quite some time. Due to this ongoing problem, we are issuing a descriptive list of prohibited vehicles for all to abide by. The list is a clarification but not a replacement of the wording in Section 12 of our By-Laws.
The list of Prohibited Vehicles is as follows:
Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Home Improvement Approval Process
The Gulf Gate East HOA governing documents require written board approval for exterior improvements prior to the start of work with the exception of landscaping. Work may begin after the below process is complete.
TO BEGIN: It all starts with a Home Improvement Request to the board.
RESOURCE: Below are links to the forms and information from the website www.gulf-gate-east.com .
REQUIREMENTS: Each request is to include backing documentation regarding the construction, product and colors information etc. Items such as walls, hedges, fences, and all structures and enclosures require a survey map illustration showing the placement within the boundaries of the property. The ByLaws Article Section 11. Building and Use will provide the detail. When using contractors, they should be able to provide you with most everything you need to submit for approval to the HOA as well as the county for the permits.
CRITICAL NOTE REGARDING FENCE INSTALLATION: The Association recommends that you speak with all neighbors that boarder the fence to determine ownership within the survey boundaries, especially if you are replacing an existing fence. Please note that all boundary disputes are between property owners only. The HOA’s authorization is only for improvements within the legal boundaries of the property.

The official Gulf Gate East Newsletter contains vital information about the HOA and upcoming events. It is published to each email address in the official record, 4 times per year (1 per quarter). To update your official records with an email address please click here to download the Compliance Form. Email is the most cost effective way for the HOA to communicate.
Printed copies will be mailed to active owners and residents who do not show an email address in their official record. This method is however costly and time consuming for our volunteer managed HOA. Getting the newsletter from email is the most cost effective communication. It's another way to help keep the annual assessment fees to a minimum.
