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.
Bob Richcreek
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.

Christine Moore
Orange County Commissioner District 2

Resident-only access to entrance/exit gates at Northfield Drive
Posted on Aug 18, 2018
All Sweetwater West residents are hereby notified of the following changes to usage of the entrance/exit gates at Northfield Drive (also known as the Welch Road gates).  Starting Labor Day weekend (on or around Saturday, September 1, 2018), only Sweetwater West residents will be allowed to enter and exit our Community at the Welch Road gates with the use of the remote hand operation gate openers (which residents should already be in possession of).  The Board has determined the excess damage to the gates at Welch Road should cease when non-residential/commercial traffic is re-routed to our main gate area (off of Wekiva Springs Road).
If you currently do not possess a gate opener, contact our Property Manager, Ramona Leccese at 407-788-6700 extension 51404 or at to obtain one before September 1.  Property Management will not be available over the Holiday weekend, so if you fail to do this, you will need to contact Ramona on Tuesday, September 4.

We are asking all residents to be patient and cooperate with our HOA Board in the interests of preserving our Welch Road gating system.  Thank you!
