8/21/15 Ficus Tree Removal

  After Windward Isles had completed their site clearing, it was discovered that the ficus trees (near the front entrance) roots had been cut along the perimeter of the new wall. This was an unavoidable situation. The compromising of the roots AND the fact that most of the ficus in question were deemed (by an independent State Certified arborist) to be in such bad condition from the above and from natural declining the Master Board agreed that from a safety standpoint the ficus should be removed especially in light of the fact we are entering SW Florida's  Gulf of Mexico hurricane season. (Sept, Oct.,Nov.) Oak trees will be planted in their place as well as hedge plants to complement our entrance and also to help obscure the adjacent Windward Isles development.

05/31/13   Email received from Collier County Sheriff Department

 My name is John Scaduto I am the community policing Deputy assigned to your area. I wanted to pass along some information, over the past several days communities in your area have seen vehicle burglaries during the overnight hours. So far all the activity has taken place in non-gated communities, however given the proximity of HawksRidge to the incidents I wanted to get the word out to as many folks as possible. So far in every case the vehicles were UNLOCKED, granted that does not excuse the person(s) who entered the vehicle however we all need to guard our property.

 If you could, please give your residents a reminder that we do occasionally have activity like this and to secure their property.

 Thank you so much.
