UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOME ASSESSMENT FEES AND HOA MEMBERSHIP DUES
Posted on Sep 14th, 2021
HOME ASSESSMENT FEES:
Greater Pines home assessment fees are collected annually with your property taxes by the Lake County Tax Collector. According to the Bylaws of the Greater Pines Homeowner’s Association, Inc., these mandatory fees are for neighborhood operating expenses. They are intended to pay electricity bills for street lamps, landscaping, general repairs and maintenance of community areas that include the pool & cabana, tennis courts, tot-lot, water retention areas, entrance monument walls and the wall along Hancock Road.
 
HOA MEMBERSHIP DUES:
Membership in the Greater Pines HOA is voluntary. Applications for membership may be submitted to the HOA Board of Directors along with $20 annual dues payment, which is due at the beginning of each calendar year.
 
Monies collected from the membership dues are used for social activities in the community. Prior activities include ice-cream socials, movie nights, community-wide garage sales, neighborhood breakfast, pool parties and the very popular Annual Family Summer Fun Days and Winter Holiday Parties. Additionally, HOA members are entitled to vote for your Board of Directors at the Annual Meeting. These special events are designed to promote and foster neighborhood involvement.
 
COVID-19 caused the cancellation of most 2021 neighborhood activities. We hope to bring them back as soon as safely possible.
 
Membership applications and dues may be mailed to the HOA at 14925 Greater Pines Blvd, Clermont FL 34711.   They can also be paid on this website via paypal. You can reach the HOA by calling (352) 404-7878, or Email at GPHOA@cfl.rr.com
A MESSAGE FROM YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH & SAFETY TEAM
Posted on Jul 23rd, 2021
                                          
 
Statewide, 92% of vehicle break-ins occur on unlocked vehicles. 
An overwhelming amount of weapons, mostly handguns have been stolen from such vehicles.
 
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office urges you to protect yourself against this type of crime by taking the following actions:
 
·      Always lock your unoccupied vehicles and do not leave weapons of any type in them.
 
·      Remove valuables from your vehicle. Criminals are attracted to valuable items left in sight.

Hurricane Season in Here!
Posted on Jul 24th, 2020
 
As Americans focus our attention on a safe and healthy reopening of our country, it remains critically important that as Florida residents, we also remember to make the necessary preparations for hurricane season which began on June 1st.
 
Take time now to prepare for an emergency and potentially catastrophic damage.  Take steps to minimize damage to your home and property as well as the homes and properties of your neighbors.
 
We’ve compiled a list of helpful links to aid neighbors in preparing for hurricane season.
 
Preparations to complete before hurricane season:
  • Sign up for emergency alerts specific to Lake County.
  • Build an emergency supply kit.  Include non-perishable foods & water, as well as plywood and other materials to protect your home.  For a printable checklist of most needed items, visit:
  • Print a tracking map
  • Get an insurance checkup on home, vehicles etc.
  • Check for flood insurance and information
  • Clear gutters, trim trees/shrubs/bushes, remove debris from yards
  • Identify evacuation routes and shelters (don’t forget to plan for pets!)
  • Create an emergency plan and communicate it to friends/family so that you know how to get ahold of one another if needed. 
 
For specific information regarding how to prepare during a hurricane watch, hurricane warning and what to do during a storm please refer to the following links:
 
The National Weather Service and NOAA have compiled a wealth of materials and activities to help educate and discuss severe weather (including hurricanes) with kids and teens here: 
 
Check in with your neighbors and help the elderly or others who may need assistance getting prepared ahead of a storm.  Consider exchanging phone numbers and contact information so that you have them in the event of an emergency.  
 
Together, we can weather any storms.
