Actions of the board

Our Board of Directors works tirelessly to keep Cantamar a nice community to raise our families and know our neighbors.
This page details some of the Actions of the Board of Directors; items they and our Property Manager have been working on for our Association.
A lot of what the Board does is behind the scenes and isn’t visible to the Homeowners.

If you have any issues you’d like the Board to address, please e-mail cantamarHOAcutlerbay@gmail.com.

January 2023 Actions of the Board

2022 was a very busy year for our Board of Directors. With Covid (mostly) in the rear view, they were able to get more done around the neighborhood and bring back some popular (and create some new) Events. We’re looking forward to another great year in 2023!

  1. Your Board of Directors selected, hired, and onboarded our new management company in Spring 2022.
  2. New architectural committee guidelines were approved by the Board and instituted.
  3. We began work on front park landscaping, irrigation and lighting (with assistance from Adrian).
  4. The BOD reinstated Community Events including our popular Holiday Events (Easter Egg Hunt, July 4th Flags, Halloween Party, Visit from Santa, and Holiday Decorating Contest). They, along with the re-constituted Social Committee, also created some New Events: a Community Garage Sale and a Summer Social. Together, they worked to pull off all these successful Events, and even came in under budget.
  5. We hosted the town mayor at a public meeting to provide insight on the town’s initiatives, as well as homeowner Q&A. And also hosted the town public works director for a presentation and Q&A.
  6. The Board worked diligently to create the 2023 budget, and did not raise monthly HOA Dues for 2023.

February 2022 Actions of the Board

Even though it’s been a while since we posted an update (and the Board’s Actions have mostly been just routine items like pressure washing, tree trimming and budget approval), the new Board is starting with a clean slate and has provided the following information:

The newly appointed board met February 15th and agreed the priority is to replace T&G Management as they have decided to move on. We have collected several RFPs and are in the process of analyzing differences in management styles and which company would be the best fit for Cantamar. Time permitting, we plan to have the top companies present at the next Board meeting for community input.


June 2021 Actions of the Board

It’s hot and humid—summer in South Florida. But at least things are starting to open up some—a lot different than last summer. Whether out and about or staying in, your Board of Directors continues to work on keeping Cantamar looking great!

  1. The Board approved 2 new paint colors and a new style Bronze door with windows
  2. Muscovy Duck Collection was completed, removing these unsanitary creatures from our neighborhood.
  3. The Board sent new Landscape Guidelines to all residents.
  4. Spring Leaf Cleanup was completed

December 2020 Actions of the Board

We hope all our residents had a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season. With 2020 coming to an end we say farewell (and good riddance). Hopefully 2021 will bring better things all around. In spite of Covid-19, your Board has been busy working to keep things running smoothly in Cantamar.

  1. At the August Annual Meeting, there was no quorum to hold the Election, so your current Board will continue to serve.
  2. We have continued to hold our Meetings via Conference Call, making sure that the business of the Association is still getting done.
  3. We approved metal roofs in terra cotta as an option for re-roofing, as well as new gazebo guidelines.
  4. We updated the landscaping at the entrances.
  5. While we were unable to hold any of our usual in-person Fall events, we were able to hold the Turkey Raffle (giving the winner a Visa gift card so they could shop wherever they wanted and weren’t limited to just turkey) and the Christmas/Holiday Decorating Contest (see the Home or Events pages for photos of the Winners)

July 2020 Actions of the Board

We’ve hit the mid-point of 2020 and hope all our residents have been staying safe and healthy. Needless to say, the Safer-at-Home order has halted much activity by the Board, but prior to that we were very busy, and have also been able to have some projects by outside vendors completed this spring. We would like to thank all the individual Board members, Committee Chairs and members, James Popadak and his team at T & G Management Services, and the Cutler Bay

  1. We hosted our usual late fall activities with the Turkey Raffle, Visit from Santa, and Christmas Decorating Contest.
  2. We held another Special Meeting to approve a new amendment. After not reaching quorum twice, we dropped the effort.
  3. We approved Removal of Muscovy Ducks from the neighborhood.
  4. We completed Street Sweeping and Pressure Washing of common area sidewalks.
  5. Lake Gates for access in emergencies and for landscape and lake treatment service access were installed.
