Community Activities


Chairman’s Corner

  • The Harmony Community Development District (HCDD) held its regularly scheduled monthly meeting on Thursday 31 August 2017.  It was attended by about 12 residents.  Some highlights:
  • Eagle Scout Tyler Hornak presented a request to donate a “Little Free Library” which is about a 4 foot cube hut with books in it that residents exchange.  While this sounds like a simple request, the CDD is a governmental agency and has many parameters to be met.  So, we asked Tyler to gather some more information and return with it.
  • We held a public hearing to discuss approving the 2018 budget, which again includes NO FEE INCREASES.  Close followers will note that one of the reasons for no increases is the byproduct of the ongoing streetlight lease buyouts.  Monthly savings from those buyouts go right to the bottom line and allow expanded services without fee increases.
  • SERVELLO, our new landscape provider, presented information on current landscape conditions which are probably as bad as they’ve ever been.  This is NOT Servello’s fault as they have just begun working here and are diligently working to get everything up-to-snuff after the departure of our previous contractor.  We also awarded them a pair of contracts to (1) provide 35 trees for the ongoing Butterfly Drive park improvements, and (2) provide an interim planting of 1600 Annual flowers in several areas.
  • District Engineer Steve Boyd updated us on continuing improvements to the drainage system in Neighborhood “F” (Cherry Hill).
  • District Manager Chuck Walter provided updates on our Finances, which indicate that we have collected slightly more income than expected and have spent significantly less money than budgeted.  So, the financial picture remains firmly positive.
  • Because of a long agenda, and several items that were discussed at length, we tabled several non-critical items and moved them to next month’s meeting.
  • Speaking of next month – see you then.  And, thanks for reading.
