Well we have had an interesting January in our Lakefront neighborhood. Early in the month we had an attempted break-in, which required Police intervention. Fortunately one of the intruders was caught and was found to be from Groveland. No one was hurt in the incident and no property was stolen however it was a rude awakening that even in a guarded and double gated community we must be aware that bad things can still occur.

We advise all neighbors to lock doors and set alarms if you have them when leaving your property. In addition,you may want to consider keeping doors locked even when you’re at home as a precaution. Hopefully this was a onetime occurrence and we will go back to being a safe and secure neighborhood.

In addition to this event, we believe that someone lifted the left entrance gate off of the hinge pins around mid month in order to enter the neighborhood. We have repaired the gate and are now planning to discuss investing in security cameras at our gate given these 2 incidents.

We have also had several neighbors witness our children tampering with our gates and playing games such as racing their scooters and razor blades in an attempt to beat the gate as it was closing as well as riding the gates. This is not only dangerous to our kids but will inevitably lead to eventual gate problems in the future.

Our gates are very expensive to maintain the cost impacts all homeowners when they are damaged or tampered with. Please keep your children away from the gates! We have a playground area where they can play. Please be aware of where your children are and what they are doing. You will be held responsible for any damages that are caused by your children within the neighborhood.

In addition our kids continue to drive, ride, and play on our streets. There are times when they are filled with kids on toys. Please pay attention when driving and look out for our kids. Parents please know what your kids are doing and supervise them at all times when they are using the streets as a playground. We want to allow the children to enjoy themselves, but at the same time we don’t want an accident to occur that we will all regret.

As you enjoy the neighborhood, if you feel that we should work to address specific areas of improvement, please send me or another Board member an e- mail or come out to one of our meetings and let us know. We would like to see more involvement at our meetings.

Our first meeting of 2011 is on February 9th at 6:00pm and will be held in the Sweetwater Ridge Clubhouse. All Lakefront neighbors are invited.

Going forward if you have questions or concerns about our neighborhood or if you would be interested in serving on our Board, please feel free to e mail me at and I will do my best to act upon your request along with the help of our great Board.

Happy Valentines Day ~ Bob Simpson Lakefront President
