I've been working with Jonathan's Landing since May, and have lived in Florida most of my life.  I'm single and have no children of my own.  I do share support of my deceased brothers children with my sister.  I work two or three jobs most of the time but when I am off, I enjoy fishing, music, babysitting and my bible study group.

Entrance Landscaping Project   

On July 15th, the POA Board approved the new landscape plans for both the north and south entrances as budgeted in the 2016 reserves.  The main goals were to lessen the amount of annuals needed each year and to provide more overall color.

The south entrance and the center median areas of the north entrance will be completed this month.


Because the north entrance plan has incorporated the new sidewalk recommended by the Long Range Planning Committee and will take 3-6 months to permit through the county, the remainder of the north entrance landscaping will be completed when the sidewalk gets approved.  This way the new plant material won’t be damaged by adding the sidewalk a few months later.

A new look is exciting!!

North Entrance Brown Sod


Many are wondering why the sod at the north entrance is brown.  The irrigation pump in this area went down and parts have been very hard to obtain.  But the pump was reinstalled yesterday and we hope the sod will return to a healthy green.  If not, we will replace along with the north entrance landscaping project.



As you know, Zeka has come to the US.  However, it has only been reportedly transferred in a small area in Miami.  The CDC is actively spraying on the ground as well as in the air in an effort to eradicate the Zeka carrying mosquitos.


 The POA, in conjunction with many other large scale communities in South Florida, are monitoring any potential spread.  But because any chemicals that might be sprayed may have unintended consequences, the POA will wait to do any active spraying until there is a potential for the virus in our area.


 In the meantime, we can all do our part by taking these simple steps:

  • Once a week, empty and scrub, turn over, cover, or throw out items that hold water.

  • Tightly cover water storage containers. 

  • Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants.

  • Use permethrin* to treat clothing and gear or buy pre-treated items.

  • Do not use permethrin products directly on skin.

  • Use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellents or oil of lemon eucalyptus or para-menthane-diol

    • Use a repellent with DEET, picaridin, IR535,

    • Always follow the product label instructions.

  • Stay in places with air conditioning and window and door screens to keep mosquitoes outside.  

  • Mosquito netting can be used to cover babies younger than 2 months old in carriers, strollers, or cribs.
