Newsletter (September 2016)

Message from Jim Gavula, HLCA President
Fall is officially here! Let’s hope the cooler weather is not too far behind. The arrival of fall also means the impending arrival of the busy holiday season. We only have one month until Halloween and all of the trick-or-treaters converging on the neighbor-hood. Soon after, Thanksgiving will give us all the chance to reflect and give thanks for all that we have. With Thanksgiving, we also have the beginning of the busiest season of all, Christmas. Time to decorate the neighborhood and put it on display for the multitude of cars that come each year to enjoy our spectacular display. Regardless of which December holiday you may observe, I hope that you will join in on the fun and help us show off our wonderful holiday spirit.
With that in mind, it is very important for all of us to focus on keeping our neighborhood looking its best. Therefore, I would like to remind everyone of the deed restrictions that we must all follow. I would like to reiterate the main points from a letter our immediate past president, Raffael, sent out a few years ago.
We live in such a great community and we need to ensure that it is well maintained and marketable.
The key points of emphasis from the deed restrictions and other common courtesies:
 Do not leave boats, trailers, campers or inoperable vehicles on the street or in driveways or on side yards within view of the street. Keep them parked in a garage.
 Do not park vehicles on your or other’s yards. When parking on the streets, please leave access space for garbage, mail, UPS trucks and other large vehicles. Please try to keep cars in the driveway.
 Keep all trash containers out of sight from the street when stored.
 Keep lots free of debris and weeds. If failure to control overgrowth and weeds occurs, any other lot owner has the right to go on the offensive property and mow, clean and bill the lot owner of record for cleanup.
 If your trees, bushes, or other vegetation is growing from your property over and onto your neighbor’s property, please be courteous and trim or remove the encroaching vegetation.
 Any fence to be erected must be limited to 6 feet in height. Limit fences to wooden, PVC/plastic, or stucco concrete block. Fences should be kept in good repair.
 Please pickup waste when walking your dog.
 Keep the speed limit while driving through the neighborhood to no more than 20 mph & always watch for children.
A copy of the deed restrictions can be found on the neighborhood website, www.hunterlaketampa.com. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our community looking its best and let’s have a wonderful fall and holiday season.

Holiday Update
It is almost that time of year!
If you are new to Hunter’s Lake, we hope you like to decorate!! We have earned a reputation
as a “must see” Christmas lights neighborhood! So start getting those lights dusted
off.
The annual Hunter’s Lake Holiday Party has been scheduled for Saturday, December 17th! Santa will be stopping
by with lots of great gifts for all the kids. We plan to have the horse-drawn hayride back again! More details to
follow, but we will be asking for everyone to bring a dish to share. So mark your calendar for this popular event!
We will also once again provide luminaries for Xmas eve.

Spring News Letter

Message from Jim Gavula, HLCA President

Well, it is spring once again and that means spring training baseball and the start of a new baseball season, the NHL hockey playoffs (my personal favorite), the return of the heat and humidity (although we are enjoying a pleasant cool down this week), and yes, the annual Hunters Lake garage sale. So, it’s time to clean out those garages, closets, cabinets and attics and turn that old stuff into a little bit of spending money. Or, in our case, time to make some money to give to the kids to go to the mall, Gamestop, or somewhere with friends.
As most of you know, the garage sale is planned for Saturday, April 16 from 8 AM to 1 PM. But be ready, because 8 AM to those diehard garage sale fans means 7:30 AM or 7 AM or even earlier. So, they will be driving through the neighborhood looking for deals as soon as the sun hits the horizon.
Following the garage sale, we have planned an afternoon driveway get-together from 2 PM to 5 PM. Please see the details that follow in this wonderful edition of our newsletter. This event is open to everyone and children are absolutely welcome. If you are available that afternoon, please stop by and join in the neighborhood fun.
I want to send out a couple of thank you shout-outs before I wrap up. I want to thank Vance Anderson for taking the photos at the holiday party in December. I hope you all had a chance to check them out on the Hunters Lake website, www.hunterlaketampa.com, or on Vance’s Facebook page, VOA Digital and to Bill Ptak for renting the bounce house.
Also, thank you to Ken and Nancy Bachor for putting together another great newsletter.

Taxing District Update on Neighborhood Street Signs
The Hunter’s Lake Taxing District would like to report that they have been working with a design firm and the county on replacing
all the street signs in the neighborhood with a decorative pole and new signage. They were delayed with a county permitting
issue, but expect to see progress soon.
Reminders…..
Some deed restrictions, county ordinances and other reminders that we would encourage everyone to be mindful of:
> Garbage cans MUST be stored out of sight (please do not keep your garbage cans in front of your garage door or in sight)
> Pets MUST be leashed when walking around neighborhood. Also, please be considerate to your fellow residents and pick
up any “gifts” your doggie leaves behind in someone’s yard. No one should have to clean up after your little darlings.
> It is spring time and time for some yard and tree trimming. We have a neighborhood to be proud of.
> If you notice a street light out, please report to Tampa Electric.
> Children will be out of school soon—please drive carefully and keep your speed down.

2015 holiday photos

Sorry its taken so long but here are the holiday part photos, enjoy.
Many thanks to all those who helped make it a great success.
I will have all the decoration photos up in the next few days.

November 2015 News

WELCOME to the first edition of Hunter’s Lake News! Our plan is to publish a quarterly newsletter to keep everyone up to date with neighborhood news, activities going on in the neighborhood in addition to any information that you might find useful.

Message from Jim Gavula, HLCA President
So, there is an old saying that goes something like “better late than never”. So, please keep that in mind as you read this heart-felt but certainly “late” thank you note and review of our “not-so-recent-anymore” Hunters Lake Civic Association (HLCA) meeting.
For all of you who were able to attend the meeting held at Bill Ptak’s house on September 22 (wow, that long ago now, huh?), thank you for taking time out of your evening to attend. And, Bill, thank you for allowing us to invade your house even though you were not able to be there. You do a wonderful job of making your guests feel welcome. And, by the way, your beautiful home has been duly selected as the designated meeting place for all future events from this time forward. Just kidding!
Oh yeah, one more thank you regarding the meeting itself, Ken and Nancy Bachor, thank you for coordinating the meeting with Bill and organizing it all at Bill’s house.
The purpose of the meeting was to bring people together to discuss how we can move the Hunters Lake Civic Association forward. Over the past number of years, the association has seen a substantial drop-off in involvement and scheduled events. Historically, the HLCA was an active organization with many, if not all, residents of the neighborhood involved as members and with a number of events and parties planned every year. In addition to the annual Christmas party, still taking place every year in December, the neighborhood held a Halloween party and parade, a spring neighborhood garage sale followed by a spring fling party with ‘white elephant’ exchange, regular get-togethers (we still try to hold the regular driveway get-togethers) and other events.

At the meeting, we filled some open positions on the executive board, namely Vice President and Secretary and discussed the past use and need for a board of directors. Roy Murray volunteered to hold the position of Vice President of the civic association and all in attendance we in agreement. Allison Poff offered her services to take notes/minutes at upcoming meetings as Secre-tary. Rob Ross will continue as Treasurer.
One of the most important roles that we needed to fill was that of a social coordinator since we truly are a civic association with a main charge of planning and running social events. This need was not lost on Roy Murray, as he will also take on this vital job. In help and support of the social coordinator’s efforts, we created a social committee and the volunteers that will sit on this committee are Mike Trocke, Emily Harrison, and Jennifer Cancio. Thanks to all who volunteered!
Many of you may never have noticed that on the cover or your annual directory, the neighborhood is divided into four (4) areas. Take a look at your directory cover and try to find the small area numbers listed. The neighborhood has a total of 76 houses, so we are able to evenly divide it into four areas of 19 houses each. With this in mind, the topic of area representatives was discussed and we even took volunteers to hold the area representative positions. Those people are Emily Harrison (Area 1), Jim Gavula (Area 2), Mike Trocke (Area 3) and Monica Mirza (Area 4). In the upcoming months, we will try to define the exact role and responsibilities of this position and how it may work in conjunction with the board of directors. Will these people actually hold board of director positions? What are the responsibilities of the area representatives and the members of the board of directors? Is a true board of directors really necessary today? The board of directors was originally defined in the HLCA Articles of Incorporation and may no longer be required in today’s association.
As can be expected, a discussion of property maintenance and vacant properties also came to the forefront at the September meeting. All I want to say on this topic is to please take pride in your property and try to keep it maintained as best as you can to the high quality standards we all want our neighborhood to present. Let’s make Hunters Lake the best and best looking neighborhood in Tampa.
If you took the time to read this newsletter, thank Ken and Nancy Bachor for their efforts. They offered to produce the neighborhood newsletter so that we can share important and interesting news with everyone. Roy has also been working on creating and hosting a website for the neighborhood so that information will be readily available online. The website host would also be used as an email engine to provide a centralized location from which emails will be distributed. See more information on this will be coming hopefully in the near future.
Thank you to all who have taken on important roles and positions for the HLCA. I look forward to working with everyone in the future and to making Hunters Lake the neighborhood that everyone else wishes they lived in.
