Raintree Pool Closed, Tentative Re-Open April 10th

The Raintree pool area, pool and spa (hot tub) are currently closed in order to comply with the Orange County Emergency Order 2020-04 regarding COVID-19/Section 2 that states that all pools and playgrounds must be closed for 14 days. This is also in response to the Orange County “Stay at Home” order that went into effect on April 9th at 11:00 p.m.

The pool area is tentatively rescheduled to re-open on April 10th at the normal time if the order is not extended.

Updates will be posted here as they become available.

Notices will be posted at the mailboxes and pool gates.

Also look out for Raintree community emails. If do not receive emails from Raintree, now is great time to sign up! Sign up for Raintree community emails now.

2020 Pool Passes Mailed

The 2020 Raintree pool passes were mailed last week to all owners. Each unit is given one pool pass – you can have a total of 8 persons at the pool. Pool passes are required and must always be visible while in the pool area. The Raintree pool facilities are for the use of Raintree owners and their guests or Raintree renters and their guests only.

Do you or your renters and guests use the pool? Be sure to read this.

If you see a person or group without a pool pass visible – especially if you do not recognize them as a resident – call Ventura Security at 407-380-5672 and ask them to do a pool pass check.

Please contact Vista Management if you are an owner and did not receive your 2020 pool pass. If you are a renter or guest, please contact the owner of the unit for more assistance.

Hurricane Prep: Time to Secure and Remove Loose Outdoor Items

Hurricane Dorian is expected to reach the Orlando area on Monday as a Category 4 storm. Now is a great time to remove and/or secure any loose outside items such as potted plants, wind chimes, anything stuck in the ground, anything that could potentially become airborne, etc. from the areas around your condo entrance or atrium. If you will not be here for the storm, please contact whomever is watching your property to make sure that the items around your property are removed or secured.

Securing items now will help prevent these items from going airborne and causing possible damage around the community. Thank you for your cooperation.

New Security Company and Access Control Announced for Ventura

Starting Monday, July 15th, security provider Ramco Protective will replace Securitas and provide gate access control and security services within Ventura. Ramco Protective is a single-source security services provider, providing not only trained security officers but also gate access equipment installation, repair and maintenance services.

Also effective Monday, July 15th, GateAccess.net will replace TEKWave. This new system will offer the following features: web access to add guests, App accessibility, and voice call-in. After the transition, Ventura residents will no longer be able to call Access Control to add visitors. The only way to add guests or vendors will be through GateAccess.net or by calling the Admin Office at 407-275-7002.

If you are trying to add guests or a vendor to come on property before July 15th, enter them into TEKWave. Ventura will release more details regarding GateAccess.net soon.

Fabric Sleeves Installed on Pool Railings

Blue fabric zippered sleeves were installed on the pool railings last week to help cool them down during the summer months. Check out the photos! The railings become extremely hot to the touch in the summer heat. While the bars will still feel warm to the touch with the sleeves on, you will no longer directly touch the metal railings getting in and out of the pool.
