UPDATE: Alachua County Golf Cart Approved Roadways
The Alachua County Engineer, Ramon Gavarrete, attended the November Board of Directors meeting to provide information on the legal use of golf carts on county roads throughout Haile Plantation.
 
Mr. Gavarrete handed out the official ordinance allowing golf carts to travel on county roads in Haile Plantation, as well as  a map of the approved roads.
 
If you intend to use golf carts on county roads in Haile Plantation, it is important that you read the entire ordinance, as well as the map.  Some key highlights:
  • The use of golf carts on county roads is enforced by Alachua County, and the Association has no rights or authority enforce rules in this regard.
  • The ordinance WILL NOT GO INTO EFFECT until signs are posted throughout the community.  If you drive a golf cart on county roads before signs are posted, you risk citation from the Alachua County Sheriff's Office.
  • The target date for sign installation, as stated by Mr. Gavarrete, is late January 2017.
  • The use of golf carts on Association trails by owners or their guests has always been, and remains prohibited.  The Association will be posting signs on the trails reflecting this policy in the coming months.
  • Any golf cart being driven on the approved county roads must be equipped with
    • Efficient brakes
    • Reliable steering apparatus
    • Safe tires
    • Rearview mirror
    • Red reflectorized warning devices in both the front and rear
  • Additionally, golf carts operated between the hours of sunset and sunrise must be equipped with:
    • Headights
    • Brake lights
    • Turn signals
    • Windshield
  • There are age restrictions for operating a golf cart on the county approved roads:
    • Drivers of golf carts must be at least 15 years of age
    • Between the hours of sunset and 11:00 p.m., golf carts must be operated by a person at least 16 years of age, with a valid government issued picture ID.
    • Between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m., , golf carts must be operated by a person at least 17 years of age with a valid government issued picture ID.
    • Between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and sunrise, golf carts must be operated by a person at least 18 years of age with a valid government issued picture ID.
  • Additional requirements:
    • Golf carts shall comply with all applicable local and state traffic laws.
    • The number of occupants of a golf cart must be no greater than the number of seats.
    • No person may stand while a golf cart is in motion.
Owners with concerns about this ordinance should contact Alachua County Public Works at 352-374-5245.  
 
Owners wishing to report violations of golf cart use on county roads are encouraged to contact the Alachua County Sheriff's Office at 352-955-1818.
 
Inspect your Property
The Board discussed a draft form for homeowners to inspect their own properties at the last meeting.  Management and the ARB have worked together to come up with this checklist, meant for owners to use as a tool to ensure all of our properties are being cared for, and that Haile West remains one of Gainesville's most desirable neighborhoods.  Please take a look at this form and give it a try...  We'd love to know what  you think!  Your feedback is welcome at HPW@mssgainesville.com.  Thanks!
 
Approved Mailbox and Installation
Dear HPW Neighbor,
 
 
The mailbox can be purchased from the local Lowes in Butler Plaza and perhaps other places in town, as well.
 
Additionally, if you are interested in having this installed by our landscape maintenance partner for $165 (that’s the $99.20 for the materials + $65.80 for the labor) we can arrange that for you! This installation includes the removal of your old mailbox, the materials above, and setting the new post in concrete (which should make the post last significantly longer!).
 
If you are interested in having your mailbox installed, please mail a check for $165 payable to Paradise Landscapes, so they may schedule your installation!

Important Indian Hawthorn Information -- Policy

Important Information About Indian Hawthorn -- Policy
 
One of the biggest problems that Haile Plantation West Association has with its landscaping is the hundreds of diseased or dying Indian Hawthorn bushes. We all want to get them removed and replaced with the appropriate beautiful Florida Friendly plants. In order to make this as simple as possible, the Architectural Review board has developed a simplified plan that can be followed easily -- click here for information and pictures.
 
The best part of the plan is that if this is followed, it is not necessary to obtain the approval of the ARB. Please review the following and let’s quickly eliminate the blight on our beautiful landscape. If you would like to do something else, please contact the ARB for guidance at ARB@mssgainesville.com.
