Upcoming Events
Semi-annual Assessments Due January 1
Wednesday, January 1st
Semi-annual HOA assessments are due by January 1, 2020. There was a small increase in the amount due, so please check your coupon books and adjust your automatic payments as needed. All homeowners will receive their coupon book the first week in December at the address on file with our management company. If you have not received your coupon book by December 15, please contact McNeil Management promptly.
 
If you are unable to make your payment on time due to financial hardship, please submit a written request for a delay of payment to McNeil Management for the board to review. Non-payment will result in the account being turned over to collections, which adds hundreds of dollars in late fees to your balance. Your HOA board thanks every homeowner who makes their assessment payment on time so that we may continue to pay for the necessary expenses of maintaining our community. 
HOA Annual Meeting
Thursday, January 16th
The HOA Annual meeting will be held Thursday, January 16, at 6:30 pm at the Brandon Regional Library at 619 Vonderburg Drive in Brandon. Homeowners will receive a mailed notice with a proxy prior to the meeting. Please plan to attend to vote for board members, or sign and return your proxy prior to the meeting. We must have at least 17 properties represented in person or by proxy to meet quorum. All homeowners are welcome to attend. (Meeting date and location subject to change with notice.)

Hurricane Preparedness
Posted on Jun 3rd, 2019
Whether it's a helpful review or you're new to Florida, we can all benefit from these tips so you and your family can prepare now in the event of a hurricane in our area.

Identity Theft is a Growing Crime
Posted on Feb 4th, 2019
Do you shred all your mail - including junk mail? What about removing labels from prescription medicines? Look closely and you'll notice "bar codes" on your mail and other labels. With a simple app you can download to your phone, identity thieves can get your name, address, birth date, list of prescriptions, and more from those strange little bars! Some even pay a guy at the dump to let them go in and sift through piles of trash, searching for these profitable bits of information. Read the February - March 2019 community newsletter article to learn more about what to watch for and how to protect your identity. 
Street Parking Concerns
Posted on Feb 4th, 2019
Street parking is an ongoing concern in communities with public streets. However, homeowners may report specific concerns to HCSO at their non-emergency number, 813-247-8200, when needed. Here are some laws drivers must obey: 
  1. Do not park near stops signs or in front of fire hydrants.
  2. Do not park across from another vehicle on the street and leave less than 12' of road space available for emergency vehicles.
  3. Do not park facing the "wrong way" on the street - you must park in the direction of moving traffic. 
  4. All vehicles must obey speed limit signs.
  5. All vehicles must be properly licensed and registered. 
Please observe HOA rules in addition to all local laws regarding parking and being considerate of your neighbors. 
Helpful Links for Community Issues
Posted on Aug 29th, 2018
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, 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.

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!
