Notes from the Prez…. It’s Spring in Florida …..by Tasha Golis
The azaleas and golden trumpet trees are in bloom around the lake. The pollen count is HIGH. It is great to see boats out on the water, the numbers growing each weekend.
Dock and seawall repair and construction continue around our lake. Hurricane Irma left behind a lot of damage.
Our annual General Membership meeting was held Wednesday January 17 at the Holden Heights Community Center. We elected the volunteer board. Thank you to Brenda Worden for acting as Vice President last year. She has stepped down, but will remain active on the board.
City Commissioner Patty Sheehan, Officer Rosado, and County Commissioner Pete Clarke spoke at our meeting. They support our community and have been helpful with issues that have popped up over the past years. I recently reached out to Commissioner Clarke about the undeveloped property on Westmoreland near Pineloch Elementary. The area has become a dumping ground for household waste and construction debris, with increased transient traffic. His office has been instrumental getting code enforcement and the Sheriff Office to act.
I recently saw a Lake Holden Yacht Club Facebook post by Kyle D. thanking Commissioner Sheehan for the improvements at the railway crossing on Pineloch.
