Salem Village is a villa community comprised of families, retired senior, working professionals, and the unique Florida Species known as "Snow-Bird". It is located within the master community of Ridgemoor, in the Palm Harbor, East Lake area of Pinellas County. Salem Village features 151 attractive villas, with tile roofs, all tucked away in a charming, gated, Palm Harbor neighborhood.

COMMUNITY ROAD SEALING -
The dates for this project are 5/24, 25, 26 and 27th. Please prepare for deliveries, appointments, vendor work etc. This project will work about the same way the road milling happened last year where half of the community was done over two days and then the other half of the community was done the other two days. Maps and a project outline will be shared soon. We will have a golf cart available to help residents with rides to/from their cars if needed. Keep in mind these dates when scheduling appointments, Amazon, UPS, FedEx, Visiting Nurses, Uber Eats, Uber, Taxi and InstaCart deliveries. The association will be getting with Landscape, Irrigation and Garbage Service vendors.
GREEN CABLE BOXES/WATER METER BOXES, DUKE ENERGY POWER BOXES - PAINTING -
Refreshing the paint on these boxes has started. If a homeowner wants replacement of the box - they will need to identify which type of box it is and call it in to the utility company for repair or replacement as the HOA cannot do that. The last time the boxes were painted was in 2019. For those keeping score at home - there are 271 cylinders, 45 plates, 151 water meter covers and numerous Duke Energy power boxes throughout the community.
GUTTER CLEANING -
Spring is upon us now and rainy season will be quickly approaching. NOW is the time to get your gutters cleaned out. If the gutters are left to pile up with leaves and debris, rain water cannot flow freely off the roofs and can back up on to your roof and could possibly seep into the house. Overflowing gutters over a long period of time also cause wood rot. The HOA is not responsible for any leaks where an owner has not properly maintained a gutter. If you are unable to do them yourself and in need of assistance, please reach out to Donna at email@example.com and she can get you in touch with a handyman that can assist you with an estimate. Our paint company has reported many villas that have overflowing gutters that is slowing down the jobs. Some gutters have small plants/trees growing out of them. Last week, the paint committee walked Phase 1 (Old Darston and Muirfield) and noted many villas in need of immediate gutter cleaning. Emails were sent to several homeowners.
Duke Energy, Water Meter Boxes (Pinellas County Utilities) and Cable Issues - homeowners with any issues with these services should be contacting these service providers directly and not the homeowner’s association.
GATE ISSUES, POND ISSUES, TENNIS COURT/PARK ISSUES -
All these issues go directly to Ridgemoor Master Association who is managed by Condominium Associates. The contact is Tracy Ingram firstname.lastname@example.org or 813-341-0943. If there are gate issues after hours, Trident Security's Service number is posted on the gate 727-339-9468 for you to contact. The quickest way to get issues repaired/addressed is to be proactive and call in the service issues.
GREEN UTILITY BOXES -
If you have a utility box in need of a repair/replacement, please determine whose box it is and contact the vendor directly (Duke Energy, Verizon, Spectrum, etc.) Do not contact the Board or Management as the Utilities will only take requests from Homeowners directly.
IMPORTANT PHONE NUMBERS TO KEEP HANDY -

Emergency Situations - always call 911
Non-Emergency Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office - 727 582 6200

RESPONSE TIME FOR MAINTENANCE REQUESTS -
Salem Village HOA is managed by Elite Property Management, Gail Flowers - email@example.com She is very often out of the office on property or in meetings. The best and quickest way to contact her is via email as it comes directly to her mobile phone, unlike telephone calls that are directed into Elite’s office and become voicemails when she is not there.
Management hours are Monday through Friday 9-5pm. She will provide prompt responses to members questions and concerns. Please do not expect a response after 5pm or on weekends. Non-emergency emails and voicemails are generally responded to within 48 hours.
YARD/HOLIDAY DECORATIONS -
Please review the Salem Village HOA Covenants Rules and Regulations regarding yard and holiday decorations - Page 2. Yard and Holiday Decorations should be kept within the garden areas of the property wherever possible so that they do not impede landscape maintenance. If you are running electrical cords across lawns - please mark them clearly with a flag so crews know they are in the grass. Same thing with wires on bushes. If any damage is done to your decorations as a result of no markings it will be your responsibility. If your decorations do not permit any maintenance to be done, your property will not be serviced during that maintenance visit.
RECYCLE BINS -
If any new residents needs a recycle bin or if anyone needs a second bin, we have a few extras that will be handed out on a first come/first serve basis. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like one.
COMMUNITY PARKING -
Please review the Salem Village HOA Covenants Rules and Regulations regarding Parking - Page 5. We are seeing more and more issues where sidewalks are being blocked by cars routinely. Please keep in mind there are many residents/health care workers that have difficulty getting wheelchairs and walkers around the cars that block the sidewalks. Also, please remember that prior approval is required if you wish to have a work trailer/POD parked in your driveway for any length of time. The form for that approval request is on the Website or you can email Gail Flowers and she will send it to you.
ZOOM MEETINGS -
Please remember to use your name when signing into the meetings (not an abbreviation/ nickname, etc). We do not permit zoom meeting access for anyone that is not a resident in the community. Our regularly scheduled meetings are the 2nd Monday of each month at 7:00 pm. If you need help understanding how to access the meetings, please send email to email@example.com so she can arrange help from the community for you.
