We know that many neighbors concerns about the docks and their safety, and with the fire it compounded the issues bringing this to the forefront of our community needs. We are happy to announce that the Lake Sloat & Lake Tucker dock repairs have been completed ahead of schedule!
We would like to invite everyone in the community to stop by and take a walk in the park and see them. They look great and should last our community for many years to come.
We invite everyone to come to the park on Saturday April 30th 2016, from 9 to 11am, for our community park “spring cleanup” day. We will be handling multiple tasks throughout the park to help clean it up and make it look nicer. Please bring your work gloves, hand tools and rakes to help out.
Our tasks will include but are not limited to the following:
•Replace the wood ends of our structure due to water damage and rot.
•Replace the wooden Tennis Court backstop.
•Clean off the backstop and repair the fencing.
•Gardening around the park, thinning out some of the overgrown areas
•Removal of small dead trees.
•Small repairs to the playground equipment until the new equipment arrives and is installed.
Thank You for being a great neighbor and for helping us in "Making Bay Lakes Better."

Do not forget that between April 1, 2016 and May 31, 2016, a one-time TRASH CART size change can be arranged. Call the Solid Waste Hotline at 407-836-6601 or sending an email to Solid.Waste@ocfl.net. Roll cart size changes after May 31, 2016, will incur a charge equivalent to the cost of a new cart.
What if I am disabled and cannot take my roll cart to the curb?
Disabled residents who are unable to take their roll carts to the curb may apply to the Solid Waste Division for rear-door service. The driver will collect the carts at an accessible location close to the house, empty them, and then return the carts to the same location. Qualified residents will receive rear-door service at no charge.
What if I want rear-door service but I do not qualify as disabled?
Residents who are not disabled may arrange for rear-door service through their franchise hauler for an additional fee of $13.50 per month. The cost for service may be adjusted annually by the county and must be paid by the customer directly to the franchise hauler.
Good Day Bay Lakes Neighborhood as we are now in March I felt it necessary to update everyone on the progress of our neighborhood.
I would like to thank everyone that has paid their dues along with the special assessment. We could not begin our transformation without everyone in the communities support. Thank you.
As we all know the park is our biggest community asset. And with this said the reconstruction of our two (2) docks began last week and with good weather and no surprises they should be complete by the end of April. As this is going on we will be working on the tennis court backstop and our pavilion.
We will also be removing some unsafe playground equipment. We are still reviewing playground equipment and what is available. This will be our last task and planning to complete it by fall 2016. Also we have noticed a lot of you are cleaning up your yards and taking care of ARC items even before we have mentioned them to you. Thank you! Every little thing we each due to keep our neighborhood up to standards helps us all. With all of this activity in the park we are proposing a “clean up the park” community day on an upcoming Saturday in late April early May, more information on this to come!
Also our local Sheriff Chris has been in our community looking out for all of us. Please make him feel welcome and he is here for everyone.
Please feel free to come to the park anytime to see the progress and help us keep our park beautiful.

ORANGE COUNTY CITIZEN CORPS
“Uniting Communities, Preparing The Nation”
Orange County Citizen Corps consists of four programs which offer you opportunities to coordinate your efforts with those of other citizen volunteers to make our communities safer, stronger and better prepared to respond to all types of disasters. Orange County Citizen Corps offers education, training and volunteer services to the local community. The overall goal is to involve citizens and help them better prepare communities and neighborhoods to make a difference. Orange County Citizen Corps programs are, Citizens on Patrol, Community and Business Emergency Response Teams, Medical Reserve Corps and Neighborhood Watch.
Citizens on Patrol (COPS) uses civilian volunteers to allow more time for sworn officers to address major crimes by performing such activities as providing assistance in preparing police reports, checking homes while residents are on vacation, providing bike patrols in community parks and patrolling shopping centers.
Community or Business Emergency Response Teams (CERT or BERT) helps communities, organizations or businesses train and educate volunteer teams about disaster preparedness and basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue and medical operations.
Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) coordinates the skills of practicing and retired physicians, nurses and other health professionals who are eager to offer their services and help local citizens in times of extended emergency situations.
Neighborhood Watch empowers citizens to better prepare and safeguard their communities in the event of an emergency situation. Citizens are also taught procedures in documenting and reporting suspicious activity within their neighborhoods.
VOLUNTEER Citizen volunteers can take an active role in protecting themselves from harm, and teach citizens what to do in the event of a crisis. The Orange County Florida Citizen Corps Council invites local citizens of all ages and abilities with an interest in building a safe community to volunteer in one or more crime prevention and disaster mitigation programs. Volunteer training programs are the foundation for this national approach to citizen participation in community safety. Citizen Corps volunteers are needed to educate the Orange County residents and visitors in public safety. To become a Citizen Corps Volunteer please call (407) 836-9140 for free training or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
