I currently serve on the Cheval Architectural Review Committee, worked on the original Traffic Committee and have regularly attended Cheval CDD and CWCA meetings over the years to remain aware of new things going on within our community.

Barcode Not Working?
Two resolutions were proposed and unanimously approved by residents which may be the cause of your barcode not working. The first was to allow the deactivation of all barcodes associated to an address which has not paid their annual homeowner association dues. These dues are currently $130.00 a year and are due by January 1st of EACH year. If a resident does not pay this homeowner association fee then EVERY barcode assigned to that address will be deactivated starting in April. Once the full amount due (including late fees and if necessary attorney fees) then new bar codes can be issued for a $15 fee per vehicle.
The second resolution that was passed was for any unpaid fine that a homeowner may have. If a homeowner has not paid a fine then the same deactivation policy and new bar code fee will apply as stated above.
If your bar code is not working then you should call Shelly Bramm from Greenacre Properties at 813-936-4160 or Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure you don't have an outstanding fine or past due homeowner association dues.
