Sweetwater West Construction Update Week of November 27, 2022
Posted on Nov 25, 2022
This weekly update is provided to help inform residents of upcoming active work areas. Residents are
asked to use caution near construction areas and understand this schedule could be affected by weather
or other unforeseen conditions.

TRAFFIC ALERT: Nightwork on Welch Road east of the community entrance continues. Expect nightly lane
closures as needed from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., Sunday through Thursday.

TRASH PICK-UP: If there is construction activity on your street that could inhibit the trash truck, you may
want to move the container to facilitate access. The construction team has been helping with this as well.
If you are concerned about container mix-ups, you may want to mark your container for easy
identification. I was told each container should a unique serial number.

MISSING TRASH BIN: If you live on Valley Pine Circle and have an extra trash bin from last week, please
return the bin to 1349 Valley Pine Circle. It would be greatly appreciated 

THIS WEEK: Work will be ongoing Monday through Saturday. Gravity sewer line construction and cleanout
installation continue on Valley Pine Circle, Sweetwater West Circle, and at the intersection of Longhill
Drive and Silver Valley Court. Temporary asphalt is planned for Sweetwater West Circle near Branch Hill
Court. Crews will begin placing sod and establishing concrete sidewalks. Those homes first impacted by
construction will be addressed first. Sod and concrete work will continue through the following week.
Driveway access may be impacted at the following homes:
 Homes on Sweetwater West Circle from Valley Pine Circle
 Homes on Longhill Drive. Barnwood Place, Branch Hill Court, Silver Valley Court, and Valley Pine
Circle
Lapin Services will be working on the following homes in this order:
Branch Hill Ct: 1324, 1333,1341, 1349, 1357, 1364, 1372, 1388
Silver Valley Court: 1817, 1816

WASTE/YARD WASTE PICK-UP: If your trash, recycling, or yard waste is missed, please call the Orange
County Solid Waste Hotline at 407-836-6601 to request a pick-up. Issues may also be reported via
Orange County’s 311 phone number.

IRRIGATION: If you have a broken irrigation pipe due to construction, please contact Lisa Mark
(contact info below) to alert the contractor and follow up until the repair is completed.

SERVICE CONNECTIONS TO HOMES: Lapin Services installs the sewer line from the cleanout to the
homes below. To do this they dig a trench about two feet wide at the homes below. Once the pipe has
passed testing, the trench will be backfilled. Prime Construction will sod the area as soon as possible
pending sod delivery. If Lapin Services has reached out to you and you have not yet done so, please
complete the Orange County permit to allow them to work on the service connection. Kindly call new
contact Jessica Edwards, Lapin Services, at 407-841-8200 or jessicaedwards@lapinservices.com with
any questions.

OCPS SCHOOL BUS ROUTE: Orange County Public Schools Transportation has designated one stop in the
community at Sweetwater Country Club Drive and Sweetwater West Circle. To allow for school bus
movement and visibility, please do not park near the bus stop. If needed the OCPS Transportation
contact is: Denise Delapaz, Area Manager, Apopka: 407-884-2208 IP 5003210; denise.delapaz@ocps.net

Just received this update from Commissioner Christine Moore, thought I would pass this information to you.

Commissioner Moore’s Post-Ian Update
 
October 3, 2022
 
We have experienced a life-changing storm for many people in Florida.
 
In District 2, as we clean up, we have important information to share regarding storm debris. This is a trying time for so many. I’m asking for your patience during this process.
 
If you have any needs or questions, please call my office at 407.836.5850.
 
Warmly,
Commissioner Christine Moore
District 2
 
Debris Removal Contractor Will Start
Thursday, Oct. 6, 2022
  • Crews will start collecting large storm debris Oct. 6, 2022.
  • They will make multiple passes to collect storm debris focusing on vegetative debris first.
  • After vegetative debris is picked up, crews will collect wood products such as pieces of a fence, and other debris like drywall, plaster, steel, brick, clay tile, asphalt shingles, and concrete.
  • Place debris on the curb at the edge of your property.
  • Separate items to be collected – Put vegetative debris consisting of large branches, tree limbs, logs, and plants at the curb in a pile separate from any other kind of debris. i.e., steel, wood, concrete, etc.
  • All your leaves and small debris will be handled as normal by Orange County Solid Waste. Make sure this debris is bagged or in cans, as required.

It appears that our community was very fortunate with Hurricane Ian.  That being said, there may be some residents that need assistance with clean up.  If you need assistance, please call me @ 708-207-8941.  If you can volunteer to help our neighbors, please call me also.

Quarterly Update
Posted on Apr 1, 2022
Dear SWW Residents:
 
Happy Spring!!  I have seen so many of you cleaning up your yards, cutting lawns, trimming hedges, deadheading all the frost damage, getting trees trimmed and planting those annual flowers/plants in the ground. It is such a good sign that Spring has arrived.
 
Our first of the year Food Truck Event was held last Friday and many of our residents attended and a fun time was had by all. Again, kudos to our Board member, Sarah Gumina for making the arrangements to make this happen.
 
Also, our first of the year Garage Sale will be held on Saturday, April 23 and Sunday, April 24. The hours will be from 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. It is time to clean out our garages and make a profit on things we no longer use!
 
I am glad to report that the Septic to Sewer Project is proceeding, though behind schedule. The contractor advised that Sweetwater West Circle, between Northfield Drive and Sweetwater Country Club Drive is to be temporarily repaved following the installation of the gravity sewer and the “force” main leading from the lift station to the County’s sewer that parallels Wekiwa Springs Road. Also, the electric service to the lift station was installed last week. It appears, that the garbage, recycle and yard waste collection issues in the construction area have been resolved between the contractor and Waste Management. I hope you find the weekly construction update notifications helpful. A few of our residents have not completed and returned the License Agreements. The County sent out registered letters to those homeowners and some if not all, have been contacted by a Board member. If you have not done so, please complete the License Agreement and return it as indicated.
 
You might not have noticed that we have engaged a new landscaping contractor, RLC Landscaping. They have over 50 years of landscaping services for both commercial and residential clients across Central Florida. I am interested in any feedback you have regarding their work.
Commissioner Christine Moore notified me to let our residents know that the County Board has voted to reduce the speed limit on several local streets from 45 MPH to 40 MPH. The street, most affecting us, is Wekiwa Springs Road. Soon, the County will be changing the speed limit signs. The change is made because of the number of accidents and speeding tickets issued. I wanted to make you aware of the change, please be careful.
 
Our Annual Members Meeting will be held on Thursday, April 14 at 7:00 p.m. We are holding the meeting at First Baptist Church Sweetwater, 3800 Wekiva Springs Road, Room A115 in Longwood. If you are unable to attend in person, a virtual link will be made available. By now, all of you should have received your meeting packet mailed to you. In the event, that you are unable to attend the meeting, please execute your Proxy to ensure the necessary quorum of owners is established. You may also sign your proxy and give to a neighbor who will be attending the meeting. We also included in the mailing, a Contact Information Sheet. In case of an emergency, our Property Manager and/or a Board Member may need to contact you. We ask that you return this sheet with your updated information to our Property Manager, Ramona Leccese or bring them to the meeting.
 
Regards,
Bob Richcreek

Bear Proof Garbage Cans for Purchase
Posted on Oct 16, 2021
Dear SWW Residents:
 
At last night's Board Meeting, the issue was raised again regarding the activity of Bears in our community getting into garbage containers, etc.
 
Please see the attached article from Commissioner Christine Moore.  She has arranged for bear proof garbage cans to be purchased for $50.00.  These cans normally sell for $245.00.
 
The article linked below details how they can be purchased at this reduced price.
 
Regards,
 
SWW Board
 
PS: Commissioner Christine Moore's office has corrected the problem we have with the county's website, indicating we do not live in a bear management area.  The County has a glitch in their system.  When ordering the bear proof can, DO NOT LIST....Circle, Court, Street, etc.  For example,
 
                            20 Sweetwater West
                            20 Silver Valley 
                            20 Branch Hill
 
When putting in your address, it will bring up your property information and you will be able to place your order.

Orange County Sheriff Patrols in the Community
Posted on May 24, 2021
Dear Residents:
 
With some reluctance, the Board has reinstated the Orange County Sheriff Patrols in our Community. These Officers will be issuing citations to offenders. The Board has received additional complaints of speeding and ignoring stop signs.
 
We ask that all residents adhere to the 25 MPH speed limit and obey stop signs.  
 
Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.
 
Regards,
 
SWW HOA Board
