SCAM ALERT! – The newest scam on the horizon…‘yes’ is all it takes to become a victim

  • You receive a call from someone who claims to be a representative of a company, like a home security agency or the government. The call could come as a recording or an actual person.
  • The scammer will then ask you, “Can you hear me?”
  • If you say “yes,” there is a chance the scam artist recorded your response and can use it to initiate unauthorized purchases and services.

Long Range Plan
The Long Range Plan was developed by a Task Force reporting to the Board. A previous report was issued in 2010. The current Plan was completed in early 2016. The Task Force sought out Property Owner input through two public sessions, a survey, and multiple informal one on ones. Input from committees and POA staff was helpful. They conducted a rigorous SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats). They consolidated this information into categories and developed recommendations. They prioritized the recommendations based on perceived impact and the related costs. Interested property owners are encouraged to review the complete Plan by clicking on the report here.
