The picnic tables, bench, and garbage cans in the playground got a fresh coat of paint and they look fabulous! Looks like new with colors to match the play set. 😃
Please clean up after yourself and put all garbage in the garbage can. It doesn’t get emptied every week, only when landscapers come and sometimes they forget.
Other maintenance projects:
The front gate will have the dents and gashes repaired and will be touched up with black paint.
We are still working on getting the front street striping done. Waiting on a new batch of quotes. This is taking a lot lol get than I had hoped.
Mulch for the playground will be topped off on Friday, or early next week. This also has taken way too long. We will be looking around for a new mulch company that is more efficient.
We will be working on repairs to the front signs where falling coconuts damaged the tops of the pillars.
New signs are ordered and installed to prevent accidental driving over the grass at the entrance. We can’t keep replacing the grass there every other week.
We are accepting another round of quotes to upgrade our security camera system at the front gate. The last quotes were well out of our budget.
The community has spoken, and it loves the fountain upgrade! In a landslide 34-2 vote, the fountain amendment has officially passed and is being recorded! Thanks to everyone who helped support the boards decision to install the fountain in our lake. We really appreciate it, as will the wildlife that call the lake home. The fountain will have new operating hours of 2pm-10:30pm through mid April. Then hours TBD for the summer.
Your HOA board would like to wish everyone a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!
Look for the holiday lights to go up soon, and the hopefully the mulch will be delivered soon. (They tell us they are backed up because of the hurricane. )
Reminder, the Holiday party is coming up December 15th. Hope to see you there! (See previous post for details)
After a brief hiatus last year, the Palisades Holiday party will be back this year!
We will be hosting our annual holiday party on December 15, 2017 from 7pm to midnight at 8608 Palisades Lake Drive.
There will be 2 babysitters upstairs with crafts for the kids. If you need a sitter, this is an inexpensive way to enjoy the party and have the kids close.
We will do a gift exchange so if you would like to participate, bring a $10.00 gift.
There will be some catering, but we ask if you can, Bring an appetizer or dessert. Coordinate with Leah at 561 568- 1656 firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be a DJ who will stop playing music at 10:00 pm to respect our neighbors.
**Special thanks to our new residents, the Millers, for opening up their home and organizing the whole event. Also big thanks go out to the Valby’s, for helping plan and donating the beverages.
Hope to see you there!

It’s time for our annual trimming of all the sable palmettos in the neighborhood. Our landscaper Danny has started today, and will finish on Monday. He asks that all cars be moved either on the opposite side of the driveway as the trees, or temporarily put them in the street on Monday. Thanks for your cooperation.
Look for more to be done before the winter season:
-Planting new annual flowers around signs and trees at the front entrance.
– New mulch in the common areas
-Top off safety mulch in the playground
-Pressure cleaning sidewalks, street gutters and street pavers, front pillars, and signs, lake path, all picnic tables and benches. ** If you need your roof or driveway done, contact Dennis Marshall of Marshalls pressure cleaning at email@example.com tel:(561)221-0556 he will be here on November 2nd and/or 3rd.
-Re-striping the lines on the street at the entrance and stop sign.
-Replace sod where the hurricane debris piles are, and the patches on some swales throughout the community. (FYI – I’ve called Solid Waste Authority several times to come pick up the piles. They assure me they will get them within the next couple weeks)
Thank you for your patience!
A Maserati was stolen out of a residents driveway on Palisades Lake Drive this past Sunday (10/8/17) morning between 430am and 5am. There is some security camera footage that shows at least 3 thieves walking around cars on that block before tearing out of the driveway with the Maserati. We also have reports of a Tahoe at the front circle at that time. The car was later found dumped in Riviera Beach with $20,000 worth of damage to it.
There is a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to the arrest of any of these individuals.
If you saw anything, contact Deputy Robert Woods at WoodsR@pbso.org. The police indicated that they have seen an uptick of transient activity in our area and would encourage anyone who sees ANYTHING suspect to call the police. They are going to recommend more patrols in our area as well.
As a small community, our greatest defense against criminals is staying vigilant. If you see something, say something! Call 911 and report it.
We are working on upgrading our gate surveillance system and possibly adding some more cameras. If you have a camera system, please check the footage from Sunday morning. If you come across something suspicious, please send it to officer Woods at the email listed above.
