IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM
THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Attention Homeowners in the Lake Sawyer South Community Association (Berkshire Park, Berkshire Place, Enclave at Berkshire Park and The Reserve at Berkshire Park).
Please read this revised Covenant Enforcement Resolution and Policy statement from your Board of Directors. It outlines the Notice process and legal steps which will be taken if violations are not remedied.
This policy is in accordance with the Association’s governing documents and Florida statutes.
Join Us for our Fall Garage Sale
Saturday, October 20th, 8 am to 12 noon
It’s Garage Sale time again: a perfect opportunity to clear out unwanted items and make a little extra cash. Once again, the HOA is picking up the cost of the Garage Sale permit and advertising, so there is no cost to Homeowners who want to participate. We will advertise in the Orlando Sentinel (newspaper and digital), on Craig’s List, and to the 50+ Nearby Neighborhoods on NextDoor. We also have a banner that will be displayed on Overstreet the week before the Sale. And we’ll have maps of the participating homes to post on those sites and distribute.
Thanks to Tatiana & Brian Walton who will again be coordinating the Garage Sale including taking sign-ups, getting the permit, placing the ads, and creating the map of participating homes. They will begin taking sign-ups on September 20th. At that time, sign-up instructions will be posted on NextDoor. Once they are posted, you can sign up by replying to that post or by sending Tatiana a Private Message through NextDoor. You can also sign up by emailing Tatiana at BerkshireParkGarageSale@gmail.com. Please provide your name, address and the date of your last garage sale (required by the County).
Sign-up deadline will be October 12th to allow time to obtain the permit.
And even if you’re not participating as a seller, it’s a great chance to get out, meet your neighbors, and maybe even pick up a special treasure someone else is getting rid of.
If you haven’t already heard, we easily reach a quorum for the August 9th special meeting to vote on changes to the community documents. All proposed changes were approved by an overwhelming margin with 38% of eligible members voting. Thank you to those who sent in ballots. If you or someone you know did not vote, please consider becoming more informed and involved. Encourage neighbors to sign up for the newsletter (in right-hand column) and to visit our website. The results of the voting are below and will become official once recorded with the county (about 2 weeks).

Board of Directors
Lake Sawyer South Community Association
Townhome Owners: Please read this message from the Board.
It’s an Update regarding Stucco and TJI joist issues in the Townhomes.
EVERY TOWNHOME OWNER NEEDS TO TAKE ACTION ON THESE ISSUES.
ARB Approval And Pulte Stucco Repairs
Many owners in our community are having warranty work being done by Pulte. Recently, several received notification from Pulte that they will not be permitted to change their paint colors moving forward. This is because several residents did not follow the community guidelines or Pulte’s direction to get ARB approval prior to painting. ARB approval is required, even if you are repainting the same color.
Landlords & Tenants
All owners leasing property need to provide the Association with a mailing address to receive official correspondence. Owners remain responsible for any covenants or architectural violations and are encouraged to provide copies of relevant documents to tenants.
Free Stucco Inspections For Homeowners
PULTE GROUP has reached out to our Association and is offering free inspections to homeowners in Lake Sawyer South who are concerned with the stucco on their PULTE home. Please email Jennie Shannon if you have questions or to set up an inspection.
Disclaimer: If you are currently represented by an attorney, either as an individual or as part of any class action regarding this issue, Pulte will not be permitted to respond to your request for inspection. Any communications you wish to have with Pulte must be through your attorney.
