They should be installed at a height of 41 – 45 inches from the ground and 6 to 8 inches back from the curb or roads edge.
Q. May we remove or replace our Lamp Post and Light?
A. No. The lamp posts are part of the community layout. They are equipped with dusk to dawn sensors. It is the Residents responsibility to replace the bulb when burnt out. The Posts are Black and must remain Black. If your dusk to dawn sensor is not working call the office.
Q. When do we need an Architectural form?
A. An Architectural form is required for any changes to the outside of your house structure and surroundings. Although you have freedom to do plantings on the 5 foot area closest to your home you must maintain those planting in a manner consistent to the Meadows at Crystal Lake standards. Over planting and ungroomed plantings are not acceptable.
Q. Do I need architectural form to plant a tree in my yard?
A. Yes. Deerfield Beach and Broward County have very strict Tree ordinances. The Meadows is currently going through a Required Planting Program to replace trees that have been removed or died over the past years. The inspectors will tell us where trees are needed. This Program will take months to complete so there will be NO tree plantings or removals approved until this Program is complete.

A. By Broward County rules our pool is open from Dawn To Dusk daily.

Q. Can the residents use the big dumpster in the parking lot?
A. Yes that dumpster is for the maintenance team and residents to use on days trash pick up is not available or is too big for your garbage can. Sorry not tires or paint, or flammables.

Friday - August 14, 2020 Hello Neighbors
There has been a lot going on as your Board works to maintain and upgrade our community.
The clubhouse FOB system has been reprogrammed. The clubhouse OPEN hours are now from 9 am until 3 pm, Monday through Friday. A FOB is required for entry to the men's and women's restrooms at all times. Additionally, a FOB is necessary for entry into the clubhouse on the weekend.
The Newsletter has been on break. We expect a new edition to be home delivered for the month of September. Until then, check the website and email alerts to stay "in the know."
We had a "non-kill" trapper on the property and he managed to remove two raccoons, a possum, and an iguana. By law the iguana had to be killed, but the other animals were released in a wildlife area ten miles away. Please make sure you're not leaving food out for stray animals.
Regards and stay safe friends

Hello Meadows Neighbors and friends.
My name is Bill Jeffries and I was recently voted in as President by my fellow HOA Board Members. Not long ago I moved to the Meadows because I heard about the great camaraderie, friendship and fun. I want to see more of that. More voices from the community, more ideas listened to, less animosity and antagonism. While my co-directors and I sit as equals on the HOA Board to make business decisions for the entire community. We are neighbors first and aspire to do our best to represent all in our Wonderful Meadows Community. I look forward to many discussions and listen to all ideas. I can’t promise we can make everything, everyone wants happen in the neighborhood, yet you do have my commitment that I will be a good listener, and a careful and thoughtful voter. I wish all of us in Then Meadows the best and healthful rest of the year.
