News Articles
Alligator in Ponds - Be Safe
Posted on Oct 2nd, 2020
Homeowners on two ponds have likely seen an alligator occasionally over the past few months. Like all native Florida wildlife, this is a natural habitat for them and it's possible to live peacefully with alligators when you exercise precautions. Keep small pets and children away from the water's edge, for example. Alligators are most active between dusk and dawn (similar to coyotes once seen regularly in South Ridge).
 
Educate and learn more from this short video from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxoSB9Ka4ec 
 
Unless an alligator shows signs of aggression, they should be left alone because when one is removed, often another one will come in and take its place. Additionally, a relocated alligator may be subject to harsher conditions as it adapts and competes for food sources. 
Baby Tears in Ponds Costs HOA
Posted on Oct 2nd, 2020
If you are an aquarium owner and have dumped your tank in or near one of our ponds, it may have caused an overgrowth of "baby tears". This invasive plant must be removed once this happens at a cost of $1700 to the HOA. Please be very careful about dumping or spraying anything near our ponds, including fertilizer for your lawn which can also lead to overgrowth of some plants/algae. 
Helpful Links for Community Issues
Posted on Aug 29th, 2020
Hillsborough County and HCSO have resources to help residents deal with issues that are not covered by your HOA and property management team. Some examples include civil nuisances (such as noise or inadequate pet maintenance), criminal matters, trespassing, traffic matters, parking of vehicles on county-owned roads, etc., which must be addressed with the appropriate county agencies. Click here to learn more about these helpful resources.

No Trespassing
Posted on May 30th, 2019

South Ridge HOA has a "trespass authorization" on file with HCSO. The authorization is for non-residents on common areas, such as around our ponds or at our entrance. Once HCSO has been called, they will respond to remove the trespasser(s) and place them in the system for a trespass warning being issued.

If the same individual(s) returns they are then subject to arrest for trespass after warning. The person(s) would be booked, then released on bond and given a court date or notice to appear. At the court hearing, the Judge would pass down the penalty which could be up to a $1000 fine and court costs for misdemeanor in the 1st degree.

While we certainly hope it never rises to this level, we want homeowners to know the process of keeping our community safe and our private property common areas for residents only. You may call HCSO for a trespasser on your private property at any time, especially once they've been asked to leave and refuse to do so.

Homeowner Volunteers

The South Ridge HOA Board has three volunteer homeowners who work with our property management company to keep South Ridge common areas and individual properties in good condition. All outdoor areas and structures must meet minimum community standards, which helps keep our property values high. Additionally, we ask homeowners to volunteer their time and talents when needed for such things as our Neighborhood Watch program, our Architectural Committee, our Holiday Decorations Committee for our entrance, our semi-annual community garage sales, and more. If you have an idea for South Ridge residents, please plan to attend a quarterly board meeting or contact a board member or McNeil Management with your information.

South Ridge Is Home

South Ridge HOA offers private common areas with small ponds and conservation land. Homeowners and their guests enjoy peaceful outdoor views with a variety of wildlife including sandhill cranes, hawks, turtles, ducks, and even an occasional fox or coyote. We have sidewalks throughout the community for walking with your family or pet. There's one entrance in and out of the community, so we have no through-traffic on our neighborhood streets. Our central location in the heart of Brandon puts us within easy driving distance to shopping, dining, schools, medical offices, and major transportation routes. South Ridge is a peaceful, quiet, nature-loving neighborhood with the benefit of location, location, location!
