The duly noticed Board of Directors’ Meeting of the Rotonda Lakes Conservation Association, Inc. was held on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 in the Management office at 3754 Cape Haze Drive, Rotonda West, Florida.

On MOTION by Joe Finn and second by Jim McNally, the Board agreed unanimously to approve the Minutes of the May 23rd Board meeting as submitted.


Tim Freeman reported the Trial Balance, checkbook and bank statements all reconcile for April. The Association is in a good financial position. He reviewed the lots owned by the Association obtained through foreclosure. The association could probably make some profit based on what the Association has invested in the lots. A brief discussion followed and the Board agreed to table any further discussion until a later date.


RMC: Tim Freeman reviewed a request from the owner at 166 White Pine Drive to add an awning to a patio at the rear of the property because there is not enough room for a lanai. Approval was also requested to take a six foot fence to the edge of the patio rather than the back plane of the house since there is not enough room for an enclosed lanai. On MOTION by Joe Finn and second by Jim McNally, the Board agreed unanimously to approve the request as submitted.


1. 152 Crevalle Road: Block 34, Lot 191 – Plans comply with Association square footage requirements. the colors are okay. Landscaping was reviewed. The builder is Results Builders. Plans were reviewed by Pete Traverso and approver. On MOTION by Joe Finn and second by Gerry Chesney, the Board agreed unanimously to approve the plans as submitted.

2. 215 Antis Drive: Block 34, Lot 36 – Porter Contracting – The house is 1687 square feet with colors similar to other homes in the subdivision. Pete Traverso reviewed the plans and noted a site screen is needed around the trash cans. On MOTION by Joe Finn and second by Jim McNally, the Board agreed unanimously to approve the plans as submitted.

It was suggested that builders be asked to make their name and phone number more prominent on the lot so people can call the County and report any problems with a building site. Discussion followed on dumpster trash and windblown trash.

– 2 –

Beautification and Landscaping: Tim Freeman reported the sign maker is backed up and will get back to us. Mr. Freeman is also having trouble with the County in getting space for monument signs in the right of way.

A proposed buyer of a commercial lot wanted to install a ten foot fence around the property; however, the County will only allow an eight foot fence. He asked the Board if they would allow an eight foot fence. The Board agreed to his request. The owner must submit a formal request prior to construction once he owns the property.

Deed Restrictions: Tim Freeman reviewed the deed restrictions violations and their status.


Park: Tim Freeman will try to get a different architect since he has had no response from the current architect.


New Board Member: A very brief discussion was held on possible candidates that could be appointed to fill out the term of Rick Gardner who moved out of the area.

Meeting Schedule: There will be no meeting in July or August. If there are ACC’s, we can have a special meeting just to review plans. Otherwise, the next Board meeting will be September 26, 2018 at 1 p.m.


• Problem with contractors of new home being built at 156 Yellow Pine. He has blocked the flow in the culvert and water backs up on the street.
