Front Entrance Palm Replaced & Installed

A new palm was planted in the front entrance to replace the one that was struck by lightning. It is the same type of palm that was there before. Check out the installation photos. The fronds will be opened in a couple of weeks so the palm can get established in that spot.

Budget Approval Meeting on November 8th is now ZOOM ONLY

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Raintree Board Meeting scheduled for Monday, November 8th at 7 p.m. will be a ZOOM meeting only. After the bad experience last month, we spent a couple of hours attempting to set up a live meeting with Zoom, but were unsuccessful. We hope to get this working for future meetings. Again, this meeting will be a ZOOM meeting only, no in-person meeting.

To attend the November 8th Board Meeting via Zoom:

What’s on the Agenda

Volunteers Needed to Install Holiday Decorations

It’s that time of the year! We will be installing our holiday decorations around Raintree on Friday, November 26th at 9 a.m. Please meet at the pool to volunteer. If anyone has any unused lights or decorations to donate, feel free to bring them for possible use.

Lightning Strike Damages Large Canary Palm at Main Entrance

Lightning hit Raintree this week and it killed the large Canary Palm at the main entrance. Such a beautiful tree, it is truly a loss! The Board will discuss next steps on what to do for that space at a future Board meeting since the tree is not salvageable.

In addition to the tree, it took out many lights (some brand new) around the community.

Cottage Grove Court Landscaping Improvements

The Landscape Committee has been very busy, getting together often, choosing and planting many varieties of flowers and bushes around Raintree. With the advice of the landscapers and the Landscape Committee’s approval, two sets of homeowners on Cottage Grove invested in updates to improve the entryway appearance of their units at their own expense. Please note that as of now, there will be a moratorium on any and all planting on common areas until the fall so the Board can come up with new, updated guidelines.

Sod was also replaced in the front between Buildings 10 and 16.
