WHERE DOES YOUR MONEY GO??

Aside from the every day expenses for the neighborhood (lawn service, electricity, pool cleaning, etc.) and the reserve fund for large future expenses, the BOD is working diligently behind the scenes to complete projects of varying significance throughout the community.  Some of those projects, along with their progress are listed below.  Have we missed something?  Have a project you would like to see completed?  Click Here to send us an email and let us know!!

2021 PROJECTS

  • Community Storage Building Installed - COMPLETE

    • A 10' x 10' storage facility was installed adjacent to the community pool.  The facility provides storage for community decorations, signage, tools, and pool maintenance items.  Prior to the installation, community property was stored in a variety of locations....to include private garages.  The facility is a durable, hurricane resistant structure which should serve the PSW community for years.

2020 PROJECTS

  • Replacement of Dead/Dying Trees - COMPLETE

    • The dead and dying Pine trees that are in the landscaping in the front of the community are in the process of being removed and replaced due to infection by Pine Bark Beetle.  The Pine trees will be replaced by a mix of different trees to prevent a similar issue with all trees from occurring again in the future.

    • 2/2/20 Update: The permit from the City of Palm Bay to remove the trees has been obtained and the Pine trees have been removed.  The BOD will meet on 2/4/2020 to determine what trees will be used to replace the trees that have been removed.
