2024 Annual Letter – Coral Cove Civic Association
It’s officially been one year since taking on the role of Coral Cove president, and what a year it has been! I feel so fortunate to call Coral Cove my home and all of you my neighbors.
As the board, our priority has been to maintain the beauty of our neighborhood while keeping the costs to a minimum for our residents. The focus on savings over the pandemic period also allowed us to take on two bigger improvement projects.
The previously manually operated park gate was becoming a constant issue with the magnets and patch welds failing. We upgraded to a new automatic gate that closes independently and has pads to open when leaving the park. Everyone I speak to is loving this upgrade!
The second large project, refreshing and mulching the islands, was one many of you were involved in. We dug out and leveled the front, removed some of the dated plants and unhealthy palms to give us a new canvas to work within 2024. Up next for the front entry is a fresh coat of white paint on the entry signs, modern light fixtures, and Florida-friendly plantings to round out the more mature plants already there.
Thank you all for your help with these improvements; every time we have a call out for volunteers, the outpouring of help is amazing!
We plan to host the annual meeting in the park this year and will send out a date for that shortly, but it will likely be in the middle of February.
Thank you for an amazing first year as your association president.

We have incorporated the $.30 + 2.9% into the online dues cost when paying online. As a reference point, the rounded price adds $7 to the $200 membership when renewing online. If paying by check, there are no additional charges. The attached invoice has all the information on paying by check, but if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
