If we are rained out another date will be set.


This is the time of year to take care of a couple of common issues that greatly affect the appearance of individual properties and the Park Charleston neighborhood. Some of our homes have a buildup of green mildew, primarily on the north side of your house. This can easily be removed by pressure washing, by the application of a mixture of bleach and water, or by using a product called Wet and Forget. Wet and Forget is non-toxic, will not harm clothing or plants, and is effective. It is usually available at Costco and Lowes. The other area usually needing attention is the landscape beds. Removing weeds now may help to keep future weed growth in the beds to a minimum.


The Crime Watch Committee needs additional members to serve. If you are concerned about maintaining a safe neighborhood and are willing and able to serve as a block captain, please consider joining. At present, we have no residents on Osprey Point Drive on the Committee. Block captains will be assigned addresses, preferably adjacent to their own residences, to make contact with neighbors to connect and pass along information regarding neighborhood safety. Additionally, block captains pass along information to the Committee chair who will keep all block captains in the loop and aware of safety/security concerns impacting the neighborhood. If you are interested, please contact Gena Pedroni, Chair, at or 850,692.3835. Our first committee meeting will be held during the third week of April.


Spring weather and children playing outside have prompted parents to express concerns about cars being driven at unsafe speeds on neighborhood streets. Be aware that on- street parking restricts visibility making even the posted 25-MPH limit excessive when children are playing. Please ensure that all members of your household, including adult children, are reminded to drive safely in the neighborhood. By city ordinance, parking is on the right side of the street only, and cars may not be parked across sidewalks.


Trash and recycle container should not be placed at the curb earlier than 24 hours before scheduled pickup and should be stored out of sight (in your garage, behind screen, or inside back yard fence) within 24 hours after pick-up. When possible, bulk trash and yard waste should be placed at the curb no sooner than 24 hours before pickup as well. Any visible alterations to your home (including color changes) must first be approved by the Architectural Control Committee. This requirement applies to satellite TV dishes, other antennas, back yard structures, fences, fence painting, etc.
