President’s Updates – 9/14/2020- Mowing of Property & Facilities Opening

Good afternoon Sea Trail!

I have received many emails asking when Riptide is going to start mowing the property they purchased from Sunrise.  If you haven’t noticed, they were out all last week with 2 crews mowing and bush hogging and have made tremendous progress.  I have been notified that they will have all of the tracts of land completed and things looking great by the end of the upcoming week.  We are going to be working as a board to identify various ponds, common grounds and buffers to ensure everything is covered as a community.

Our facilities are opening today. Remember to follow the rules and restrictions. Continue to stay safe and enjoy the weather.  Click HERE for more details.
