Lint and other debris can build up in your dryer hose and vent duct. If the dryer hose and vent duct are not cleaned and inspected every year, this could create a fire and mold problems. If you haven’t had the dryer vents cleaned regularly, here are five warning signs that indicate that it’s time to clean the dryer vent.
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.
A revised ARB Application is now available that includes Vista Management’s new address in Maitland. If you previously saved the application or are currently working on one, be sure to visit the ARB Application section of this website to make sure that you are emailing, faxing or mailing your application and supporting documents to the right place in case you are using the older form.

At the March Board meeting, there was some discussion related to water collecting
in front of the doorways of some condo units after a heavy rain. If you are
having this issue, please contact Allan Amer at AllanAmer@aol.com and supply him with your name, address, email, phone number and information about the water issue.
Voting homeowners elected Allan Amer to the Raintree Board of Directors during the Annual Meeting on Monday, December 10th. Allan fills a position vacated by Alison Wanta who served as Secretary for four terms. Alison will continue to maintain the community website and email notifications per the request of the Board. Thank you for participating in this election!
There is one position open on the Raintree Board of Directors and two volunteers have expressed an interest in the open position. A voting ballot was sent to all homeowners back in November. If you did not mail it in, bring it to the Annual Meeting that will be held on Monday, December 10, 2018, 7pm at the Clubhouse.
If you are unable to attend, fill out the proxy form (also included in the mailing) and give the form to a neighbor who will be attending the meeting. It is important for homeowners to participate in the selection of their Board representatives.
Large unwanted items such as mattresses, sofas, and other household furniture are ending up in the Raintree dumpsters. Not only are these items taking up precious space for the usual trash, many of these items are in good condition and can be easily picked up for recycling or donation. Check out how to get rid of these larger items responsibly.
Over the past few months, the pool area has received several upgrades, including new stall partitions in both bathrooms, as well as a Christmas palm in the hot tub area, which replaced older plants in need of refurbishment.
The old bathroom stalls were deteriorating, and it was decided that it was time to install new ones. They are light gray and a thick plastic material, so they should hold up nicely in the Florida weather. Installation was performed by Ron Bochat, Barry Litka, Chris Hirst, Don Cottrell, and Lee Sterner. Dave and Susan Keetch handled the painting and clean-up. Everything looks great!
The Board of Directions would like to thank Charlie and Joanne Hessler for donating the palm. The palm originated from the Hessler’s courtyard, which was overgrown and too big for the area. In an effort to save the palm, the Board accepted the tree and gave permission for it to be planted in the hot tub area. The transplant was challenging, but Charlie, Mike Gallagher, John Gardner, Ron Bochat and Dave (Maintenance staff), were able to get the job done.
The donation of this tree is just one of the many landscaping items (such as mulch) donated by residents over the past few months in an effort to renew and refresh the Raintree landscaping.
As such, the Board of Directors would also like to thank MaryJo Cottrell, Tom Rawson, Christine Wanta, and Dave and Susan Keetch for taking an interest in the beautification of Raintree. Over the past few months, they have contributed their time to weeding, mulching and pruning not only around the pool area, but around their condos units.
