No Trespassing
Posted on May 30th, 2018

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. 

Pond Vegetation To Be Cleared
Posted on Apr 6th, 2018
Residents will notice maintenance, clearing, and vegetation removal occurring around South Ridge ponds in the coming weeks. This work is required as a result of a recent inspection to pass our SWFWMD inspection. Crews are permitted to access these areas over drainage easements on the sides and rear of your property. You may refer to your lot survey to see where these easements occur. Please don't disturb work crews while they perform their necessary duties. If you have questions about work on or near your property, please call or email McNeil Management.  
Time for Spring Cleaning!
Posted on Apr 6th, 2018
Freezing weather has passed, drier weather is here, and temperatures are favorable for outdoor spring cleaning and maintenance. That means it's time to pressure wash dirty/stained outdoor surfaces like your home, fascia (roof trim), driveway and sidewalk. If your paint has faded, sealing cracks and repainting will help protect your home better during the upcoming hurricane season. If your roof if missing shingles, it's a good time to replace them with a color from the pre-approved list. Wood fences may need a good pressure wash and clear stain to seal them, and even slats or panels replaced. Lawns and landscaping need special attention too! Don't forget to give the exterior of your home and property a good review regularly and address all maintenance issues promptly. 
Trimming trees over the street
Posted on Apr 6th, 2018
The county is now recommending a 16' clearance height of tree branches that hang over the street to accommodate larger trash pickup vehicles. Branches scrape the trucks, damaging their paint, and can break, causing a hazard to pedestrians and drivers. If your oak tree extends over the sidewalk, it should be trimmed up to at least an 8' clearance, and 16' over the street.
