Weeds, trash, junk, and other debris should be removed when present. Unsightly conditions should never be permitted to occur on a residents property.

Portable basketball hoops are not permitted. Equipment such as trampolines, etc, are not permitted on the sides of homes.

The Architecture Review Commitee(ARC) exists to help ensure consistent application of design criteria and requirements included in the Declaration, Rules, and Architectural Guidelines.

HURRICANE PREPARATION & CLEAN UP



IN PREPARATION FOR A HURRICANE

Gatehouse Protocol: Per procedure, all gate arms will be removed when sustained winds reach 30 mph or earlier if warranted to allow the guards to safely seek shelter. The guards will secure the gatehouses and computer equipment. Once the equipment is secure, all gate operations will cease. We will resume normal gatehouse operations as soon as possible (depending on the severity of the storm). The Officers cannot assist you with your hurricane preparations and will not be on site during the storm. In the case of an emergency, please call 911.

Waste Management will announce pickup schedules as they will change. There should be no trash, portable BBQ grills and propane tanks outside your home starting two days prior to the storm and your trash cans should be secured in your garage.  As soon as we receive updated information on when trash pickup will resume we will update you. You can also visit www.wm.com then click on Hurricane Service Impact for the latest schedule.

Once notified that a hurricane is coming, prepare your home and gather necessary supplies: water, canned food, fuel for your vehicles and generators, etc. Make sure the storm drains are clear of debris in front of your homes for water to properly drain. Fill your bathtubs with water that may be needed to flush toilets if municipal water supply is curtailed. Do not trim or remove any landscaping that you cannot dispose of at least 2 days prior to the hurricanes arrival. Do not leave any landscape debris on the curbs or in the common area. Please store and secure all patio furniture and any loose items outside your home that could endanger your home or your neighbors. Residents are responsible for securing their own homes.



Our maintenance team and officers cannot assist homeowners with installing shutters or securing their homes. They are preparing and securing the common area property. DO NOT WAIT TO THE LAST DAY TO PREPARE YOUR PROPERTY BECAUSE YOU THINK THE HURRICANE MAY NOT HIT US.  

We are one community and we can help each other through this. Please offer assistance to your neighbors if they need help in preparation, emergency repairs and/or cleanup. Stay safe, property can be replaced, lives cannot. 


HURRICANE AND STORM CLEAN UP

Common Area Landscape: After a storm clears, the PGCC landscape vendor will remove all landscape debris from the roadways. Debris will be laid on the adjacent swale area. They will not remove individual resident's storm debris. All residents should stack their own landscape debris for normal waste management pick up. Since most homeowners have landscapers servicing their property, we ask that you have your landscaper remove any landscape debris you may have rather than waiting for Waste Management or the City to avoid creating shelters for vermin


WEATHER RELATED DEBRIS REMOVAL

In the event of a storm, or other weather related events, homeowners are responsible for removing debris from their property. Do not place debris in common areas unless the HOA designates debris collection sites in common areas. 

Within The PGCC Community The Following Cleanup Activities Are Independent of The Citys Efforts: 

Common Areas - The community landscaper will remove debris from the roadways and common areas  emphasizing safety by clearing roads and obvious potential dangers and secondly to restore the full beauty of our common areas. Downed trees within the common areas will be staked as quickly as possible to save them.

The trees in the swale between the sidewalk and the road are owned by the individual homeowners. These trees are not the community's property and each homeowner is responsible to maintain the swale trees in front of their home. Some homes have one tree in the swale though others can have up to four. No matter how many swale trees a home has, the homeowner must be responsible for all ot them.

If you have swale trees that fall and can be replanted, please have your landscaper stand them upright and stake them.  If the trees cannot be saved, it will eventually be your responsibility to have them replaced as required in the community documents. 


LOUD NOISES & MUSIC

Please keep music and other noise levels to a minimum if used outside.  Keep in mind, the City Noise Ordinances and our Covenants do not permit loud noise outside the hours of 8 AM to 11 PM, and can result in citations and fines by the City. Fireworks are not permitted in PGCC at any time.


PET ETIQUETTE

Homeowners are allowed to keep a reasonable number of dogs and/or cats as pets. Dogs should be on a leash and under control at all times when outside the confines of fenced areas of your yard. Barking dogs are considered a violation of the City Noise Ordinances and can result in citations and fines. The owner is responsible for the immediate clean up of all pet litter. There are doggy stations throughout the PGCC common areas. No other animals, such as swine, goats, horses, livestock, birds, insect or poultry of any kind are permitted. Certain dog breeds including Pit Bulls, part Pit Bulls, Doberman Pinschers, or Rottweilers are prohibited. Having or maintaining any of the excluded type of animals and breeds will be cause for immediate legal action by the HOA against the homeowners and any and all legal cost involved will be borne 100% by the homeowner in enforcing these rules.


SIGNS

No commercial billboard or advertising shall be displayed to the public view on or from any lot.  Owners may NOT advertise a dwelling lot or unit for rent or for sale by displaying a For Rent, For Sale, or any other type of sign either on or off the owners property. Realtors are not allowed to post any form of signage including but not limited to Open House signs, inside or outside the gates of PGCC or anywhere along the perimeter of the
community.


WATER FEATURES & WATER WAYS

Throughout the community there are many man made fountains (Water Features) and canals/lakes (Waterways). Playing, bathing, fishing, boating, or otherwise using the Water Features and/or Waterways is not permitted. Please remember that alligators, snakes, otters and other creatures live in our lakes and pose a threat to residents. If you or your children see any of these animals, avoid approaching them. Please report
sightings of alligators to the Property Manager.
