Welcome to the Wedgefield Homeowners Association

Wedgefield is a Friendly and Peaceful Golf, Equestrian Community located in Orlando Florida. The Beauty of Wedgefield is it's laid back environment where golf carts and horses are used for transportation almost as much as cars.

The Wedgefield community is diverse in both age and culture and offers a great atmosphere for enjoying the natural beauty and great weather of Central Florida.

We encourage you to visit Wedgefield and have lunch at the Club House and get to know some of the people that call Wedgefield Home.

Our Next General Meeting is on Wednesday, April 8th at 7:00 PM at the Wedgefield Golf and Country Club.

Your neighbors would like to invite you to join our Homeowner's Association:

LOST PETS

My cat, Hezekiah, got out from the enclosure early this morning. He is about 12 lbs and answers to Hezekiah or Heze. He is a house cat so I really need to find him. He is neutered and is up-to-date on all his shots. Please contact Cassandra Wilds at 502-767-9972. My address is 2566 Ballard Avenue, 32833.

Thank you!

FOUND DOG

4/6/2015

My husband picked up a dog after almost getting struck by a car on Dallas. 


 
Please call for where he is being cared for.

 
Thank you

 
Jen & Armando

 

Found dog on 3/5/2015
He appeared on Starry Street and now found his way to Somerset Street.

He is a very sweet dog.
Black - perhaps part shepherd
Has a small brown spot at the base of his body near his tail.
Didn’t want to risk him getting hit on Starry, Bancroft or Dallas so i have given him temporary shelter. I already have a dog and therefore cannot shelter him long term.
Please call us at 407-568-4420


Monthly Adopt-A-Tree

Saturday, April 11th  ~ 8am to 12pm

Fort Christmas Historical Park

For further information call 407-254-9200.


This is a FREE program for all Orange County citizens designed to encourage residents to add trees to our environment. Adding trees to the landscape has many long-term benefits. Along with the obvious advantages of shade and beauty, trees provide oxygen, filter pollution, and create habitats for wildlife. In addition, trees replenish our lost tree canopy that has diminished due to storm damage, age, and development. Each county resident must provide proof of residency and will receive up to two trees while supplies last.

Note from the President

Dear Friends & Neighbors,
 
I hope this message finds you and your family doing well. One thing that I believe is that change is one of the certainties of life and after years as quiet Wedgefield with little or nothing happening, well things they are a changing.

There are currently at least ten home builders with active construction in either or both the city and the estate sections of our community and several have more than one home underway.

The Ranger Drainage District has a couple of projects underway; the Lake 11A project on Seaview Street will be completed by May with properties having an attractive lake view. Also the storm water relief project from Abalone Blvd and Yam Street around the commercial property and down Macon Parkway will begin by the first week in April.

The Family Dollar Store project, at Maxim Parkway and State Road 520, will begin the third week of March and should be completed in about sixteen weeks. Also watch for a notice from Pluris of an informational meeting about some upcoming construction between the water plant
and Maxim Parkway.

The good news is it appears that our property values are on the rebound. Have a great month and come see us at the WHOA Meeting on April 8th at 7:00 pm in the Golf Clubhouse.    

Mike

Bayanihan at Wedgefield2015 New Year's Eve Party

Dear Bayanihan at Wedgefield Members and Friends,

 

If you attended the wonderful New Year's Eve Celebration at the Gandola residence, you know that we started the year off with a bang, great food, music and dancing.

 

I would like to thank the Gandola Family for hosting the New Year's Eve celebration and everyone who participated, helped, organized, and supported the event.

 

I would also like to thank Jonathan Toves for his leadership, the 2014 Officers for their hard work this past year, and the many members that supported and participated.

 

Looking back through 2014 with Bayanihan, you can see by the event photos below that it was busy with activity.

 

Looking forward, I see an opportunity for Bayanihan at Wedgefield to do extraordinary things for our members, kapitbahay, and community. The possibilities are only limited by our imagination and resources.

 

I invite you to look at the possibilities and the future of Bayanihan at Wedgefield at the next general membership meeting. I look forward to hearing your feedback so together we can plan the future of Bayanihan at Wedgefield.

 

Sincerely,

 

Victor Alzona

Neighborhood Watch

This Month Neighborhood Watch Information will continue to be published in an ongoing effort to keep our community informed on crime watch matters.

During the last half of FEBRUARY to the present date of MARCH 15, 2015 based on Orange County Sheriff’s crime statistics and individual reports not yet reflected in the statistics WE HAVE HAD NO REPORTED CRIMES with the exception of a phone report regarding the theft of gas from 2 vehicles on Melville Street in the 20700-20800 block.

It stands to reason that if we see someone carrying a gas can and a hose after dark one can assume that they need help of some kind and the quickest way to help is by calling a deputy. Do not confront the individual, just get a good description take a deep breath and make the call – since it is some type of emergency I would call 911 and then me at (407) 679-6644.

Do you remember when we published a wanted poster showing a suspected auto burglar back in JUNE of last year?

We immediately got 2 hits with names given. I was just informed that an arrest was made last month. I wonder if that may be why we do not have any burglaries to report. Reporting incidents as they occur can result in good things happening.

Citizens On Patrol

Can I Park here or there?
 

When I am out on patrol I sometimes see vehicles parked in violation of ORANGE COUNTY ORDINANCE 85-1 CHAPTER 35 and I may issue a courtesy ticket (warning ticket with no fine) to let the vehicle owner know that they are in violation.

 
Occasionally the owner may see me writing a courtesy ticket and they may ask me if they can park here or there? My answer will depend on the parking violation I observe and the situation. The majority of the vehicle owners I have spoken with are not aware of ORANGE COUNTY ORDINANCE 85-1 CHAPTER 35 and are happy to get an explanation from me of why they are in violation of the ordinance. The majority of the vehicle owners are happy to quickly remedy the situation to prevent a parking ticket.
 

During my patrols I have noticed that the majority of the parking violations in Wedgefield are due to vehicles parked on or blocking sidewalks and vehicles parked on or blocking the bicycle lane / path.

Firewise Communities

 

PRESCRIBED BURNING BY GAIL WILDS
 

Florida is pyrodiverse, meaning that most native plants evolved with fire due to our propensity for lightning strikes. Saw Palmetto, Wire Grass and Long Leaf Pine are examples of this pyrodiveristy. Similarly, due to our long growing season, the equilivent of 300 gallons of fuel are added to each acre every year. Therefore, managing or reducing this fuel is an important component of land management in Florida. Prescribed burning favors edemic species and prevents exotic species.

Most prescribed burns are accomplished during the Fall through Spring. The objectives vary, but fuel reduction is always a top priority. A prescribed burn simulates a low intensity mosaic of fire. Whereas a wildfires’ intensity can destroy native habitats. Most zones are prescribed burned on a rotation of 3 - 5 years. Land managers, like St. John’s River Water Management District (Hal Scott), are required to use a prescription that dictates the weather conditions required for each zone. Wind direction is critical due to smoke management. Because weather is unpredictable and forecasts are sometimes unreliable, land managers have a goal and prescriptions for the zones they want to burn on any given year. The weather is the deciding factors before the operation is started. Weather readings and a test fire determines if conditions are right in the field. Equipment and crew always on standby when the weather fits the prescription.

Learn more at our National Wildfire Preparedness workshop on May 2nd from 10 AM to Noon in the conference room at the Wedgefield Country Club. To register contact Gail Wilds 407-568-0737

Wedgefield Classy Red Hat Ladies

On February 20th 32 “Red Hatters” gathered at our neighborhood Country Club. Ann Breazzano, Debbie Goderis and Ann Grimes were the hostesses.

We had an outstanding Italian Buffet and everyone had a great time. The tables were beautifully decorated and everyone received a handmade gift at their table. The door prizes were won by Norma Hallberg, Isabella Asgill, Lillie Douglass and Eleanor McGill. We had a few visitors: Janis Thaw and Donna Parsons. Donna enjoyed it so much she wants to become a “Red Hatter”. Our birthday girls were Rosemary Curtis and Doris Bain.

Our next outing will be March 20th at “Red Lobster”. Jackie Miner, Joann Cobbs and Martha Jo Simpkins will be the hostesses. In April we will descend on the new “Beef O’Brady’s” on Colonial Drive not far from our neighborhood. Our hostesses will be Doris Bain, Jean Terry and Alta Deevers.

On the 13th of February a group of “Red Hatters” went to the Country Club for a Valentine’s Buffet and everyone wore a touch of red for Valentine’s.

On the 1st of February seven “Red Hatters” really enjoyed the “Mary Poppin’s” play at the Titusville Playhouse and then we headed to “Shiloh’s Seafood Restaurant”. On the 26th of February five “RED Hatters” drove to Mims for a Tea Party that was hosted by Joan Smith (who is the Queen of the “Huggables”). She had chicken salad, ambrosia, regular salad, cake, cookies and all kinds of hot and iced teas. She gave all 14 “Red Hatters” a tote bag; we got to pick out our color.

Community Emergency Response Team

 

CERT Training


On Saturday October 11th, 21 members of the Wedgefield CERT group met with Mr. Jack Tracy of the Florida Health Department who is in charge of the Orange County Neighborhood Emergency Preparedness Program (NEPP). Mr. Tracy introduced the team to Mr. Jim Mauney and his wife Kim. Mr. Mauney is a Professional Trainer who has trained Firemen, Law Enforcement Personnel as well as numerous CERT groups and Kim is a Certified EMT who is currently employed by the Corrections Department.
 

Mr. Mauney went into detail about the various parts of a NEPP and CERT components from the Incident Command thru the teams in the field and how they all blend together. He led the attendees through a simulated tornado in Wedgefield in a table top exercise and then explained how good record keeping is extremely helpful to the Fire Department personnel and other professional responders. He put the attendees through some very interesting team building exercises and worked on radio communication procedures.
 

The entire day was interesting, informative and motivating. This is just one more part of the training that the volunteers do so that they are ready to help their neighbors and the other residents of Wedgefield in the event of a disaster.
