The conduits and wires for the new electronic pool gate card readers were installed last week. Starting in December, Raintree residents will receive their pool pass and an electronic card to open the gate. You’ll need both of these to use and enter the pool. Check out the photos to see what the boxes look like at the gates.

With Covid-19 affecting us this year, some of our snow birds have chosen not to come down. This makes knowing who to contact when there is a problem within a unit very important. We already had smoke alarm batteries die and roof leaks occur, both of which meant Maintenance needed access to the unit to make repairs.
For this reason, we need a record of who to contact locally for a key to a unit, or either a friend or company looking after a unit. Emergency contact information, the name and phone number of a local person who has a key, should be sent to Randy Moreland at Phantom3mb@aol.com or to Katie Wilkerson (Vista Management) at Kwilkerson@vistacamfl.com.
Over the past few weeks, several residents have observed a trend at the Clubview Drive dumpster that is creating a mess and potential health hazards:
- Trash bags are being left OUTSIDE of the gates of the dumpster and/or beside the gates leading into the dumpster.
- Trash bags are being left inside the gates, beside the dumpster.
- White kitchen bags with orange ties are being left beside the dumpster and the ties are NOT TIED. Animals have gotten into these bags.
- Sometimes the trash is put into small boxes and lined up on the side of the dumpster gate.
It should come as no surprise that garbage must be placed INSIDE the dumpster. This is a friendly reminder that when garbage is not handled properly, your neighbors not only see your mess, but often have to pick up your mess.
Thank you for helping to keep this community a beautiful place to live.
It doesn’t take much to remember that we have pets in our community. If you don’t watch your step, you are liable to step in one such reminder!
Besides being unsightly and smelly, animal waste can carry bacteria and parasites which can affect both humans and other pets.
One of the most common forms of disease transmission between dogs is through fecal matter.
By taking a few simple steps to clean up after your pet, you contribute not only to the beautification of our community but also help to eliminate one of the most irritating nuisances in our community. Thank you for your cooperation.
When walking your dog(s) in the community, remember to:
- Stay on the community grass and sidewalks.
- Take along a baggie with you to pick up waste with and then dispose of it properly.
- Have all dogs on a leash.
The Raintree pool is currently open. By choosing to enter the pool area, you are entering at your own risk and understand that you could be infected with COVID-19.
Please follow the safety guidelines below. Non-compliance of these guidelines will result in pool closure.
- Practice social distancing and keep at least 6 feet (2 meters) between your party and others.
- Bring your own hand sanitizer.
- Bring your own disinfectant wipes to wipe down table surfaces, chairs and anything you touch in the restroom.
- Chairs and chaise lounges must be covered with a towel.
Please do not use the pool, hot tub (spa), and/or pool area if you feel unwell or are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Owners and renters should evaluate their risk in determining whether to use the pool, hot tub (spa) or the pool area.
Remember to wash your hands often.
Don’t forget to put down the umbrella.
If you see lightning while in the pool, exit the water immediately and use the “30 second-30 minute” rule to determine when it is safe to go back into the water. Count to 30 and listen for thunder. If thunder is heard, do not go back into the pool for 30 minutes.
Check out the Raintree Pool section of this website for hours, pool rules, and pass requirements.
