Newsletter of the Suburban Heights Association
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT:
Dear Neighbors,
Now is the time of the year that the association collects the annual dues that fund our neighborhood
activities, the printing and distribution of the newsletters, and the maintenance of our common areas. The annual
dues for 2014 are a great bargain at $15.00 and can be paid by check or cash. One of our biggest expenditures
is the maintenance of the strip along 43rd Street from Landmark Woods to St. Michael’s Church. This includes
mowing, edging, blowing, weeding and pruning of the trees, shrubs and the fig vine that covers the concrete wall and
costs the association $2100 per year. This year we plan to improve the entrance island by removing the existing
vegetation (leaving the hollies and live oak ) and then mulching and planting new, easy-care plants. In addition, the
dues pay for our neighborhood social activities such as the annual picnic and ice cream social . At this time, only
50% of the neighbors pay their dues. To keep our neighborhood beautiful and property values up, we need your
help! At the bottom of this page you will find a form to send in with your payment. This is very important for
keeping our directory up to date.
On another note...we have joined www.nextdoor.com. Nextdoor’s mission is “to use the power of technology to
build stronger and safer neighborhoods.” We have a private, online site just for our neighborhood. Neighbors who
have joined so far are enjoying the ability to share news, crime watch information, items for sale, and much more via
this site. Check it out! And watch for invitations in your email from other residents who have already joined.
I continue to serve as your president this year and encourage you to contact me if you have any concerns or
suggestions as to how we can improve life here in Suburban Heights.
You neighbor and SHA President,
Diann Dimitri - 352-378-7063 - [email protected]
