Trunk and Treat Oct. 30 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Posted on Oct 16, 2021
Sweetwater West is hosting our 1st Trunk or Treat for the kids (well maybe for some adults too). What is a Trunk or Treat you are asking??? Allow me to explain. We will have a portion of the road blocked off on Sweetwater West Circle, bring your car or a small table to line up and pass out candy.... However it's not that simple, we want to make sure it goes along with the theme of Halloween, so decorate the back of your trunk or your table. (Amazon has a great selection of Trunk or Treat kits to help you out). 
The event will happen on OCT 30th (Saturday) from 6:00-9:00 PM. 
We will be starting the event at 1812 Sweetwater West Cir (Long Hill and Sweetwater West Cir). There will be signs indicating where to line up your car. 
The kids can make their way down the sidewalk to collect their candy. 
*WE ENCOURAGE COSTUMES* Nut Free candy is also something to consider. 
I am asking that you RSVP for the event to make sure we have adequate spacing marked off.
Please RSVP to or if you need additional information.
Ps... We also have one more Food Truck Event on Nov. 5th for the year, mark your calendars now.

Construction on the Septic to Sewer Project Underway
Posted on Sep 22, 2021
As you have probably seen, construction has begun on the Septic to Sewer project this week.  The contractor will close access to the Welch Road Gate and Northfield Drive on Thursday.  We are sorry for any inconvenience.  
Also, the construction project sign was placed just north of the Wekiva Road Main Entrance.
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.
Sweetwater West Under Construction: March Update
Posted on Mar 9, 2021
Dear Residents:
Your Board has been busy in the last months of 2020 and the first three months of 2021.  
You have doubtlessly noticed the new retaining wall, new plantings and the removal of dead pine and oak trees along Sweetwater Country Club Drive.  We have added rock at the end of several of the islands because mulch would wash away.  We also removed  the dead ear tree, adjacent to the Welch Road gate and the large diseased oak tree that had been struck by lightning behind Barnwood Circle. We also trimmed the trees along the Welch Road wall.
I hope you enjoyed our new Christmas decorations as well.
Our next project, expected to start this week, is the restoration and painting of the Welch Road wall and gates, the Wekiwa Road gates  and restoration of the Wekiwa Road Entrance walls and center column.  The community signs at the Wekiwa and Welch Road entrances will be also be replaced.
The curbs, gutters and sidewalks on Sweetwater Country Club Drive and Northfield Drive are also going to be pressure washed. 
Some of these projects  may cause a disruption to the traffic flow for a short period of time.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

Referendum Passed
Posted on Dec 29, 2020
The septic-to-sewer project referendum passed with 155 yes votes. Construction on this $10.088-million project is scheduled to begin in June 2021. As previously announced, the homeowners contribution to the project is $6,000 per property. The next step in the project is the establishment of a MSBU (Municipal Service Benefit Unit). This determines how property owners pay the $6,000, either a single payment or over 10 years with payments added to their property tax bills.
Funding Approved for Septic to Sewer Conversion
Posted on Oct 16, 2020
Commissioner Christine Moore has announced funding for the septic to sewer project in Sweetwater West was approved (see below).
From: Commissioner Christine Moore
Subject:We have received funding from the Florida Dept. of Environmental Protection!
Good afternoon Sweetwater West residents. I have very good news to share!

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) leadership contacted me today to let me know they will provide $4.3 million for the septic-to-sewer conversion in your subdivision. This means we can proceed now with conversion, if you choose to vote in favor of doing so.

Some of you were here this past Tuesday at a friendly picket at the Orange County Administration Building urging the FDEP to provide the money. Your persistence and dedication worked. My office will be in touch very soon regarding the next step. Thank you again.
