Sent 2023-07-17: Pool Jets - 

Hi pool users.    Need your help!!   The jets in the pool are adjusted to make the skimmers work more efficiently.   They steer any floating objects like leaves towards the skimmers.    If you try adjusting these jets   it just cuts the way the water is moving towards the skimmers.

We would like to ask you to leave the jets in the position they are in now. 


Thank you and your cooperation is much appreciated.

Although the following has been provided in meetings with residents and shared in the Sunshine newsletter, it has come to the attention of your Board of Directors that many of our residents are not familiar with certain procedures associated with the sale of homes. If you are contemplating the sale of your home, either on your own or with the help of a realtor, the following information is for you, or your realtor if that is the case. Please share.

  1. Our policies restrict your advertising signs as follows: One sign may be placed at the front of the property and one sign at the rear of the property. These signs can be either single sided or two-sided signs, but no larger than one hundred forty-four (144) square inches in size.

  2. RESALE CERTIFICATES: In the Board Meeting of September 12, 2022, the Board adopted the following language in Policies & Procedures relating to Resale Certificates.

    To comply with Texas Property Code, Sec. 207, because we are a Subdivision subject to mandatory membership in a Property Owners’ Association, we require that any owner selling his residence must provide a resale certificate to the buyer prior to closing. This must be done whether by sale through a realtor, or a private sale between individuals. This will be provided by SEPO not later than ten days following a request for same at a cost of $250. The resale certificate will provide, in part, the following information: Financial condition of the association, any unpaid amounts due the association on the property, any known violations of noncompliance for the rules (Covenants) of the association.

  3. In the Board Meeting of October 11, 2022, upon attorney’s advice, it was decided by unanimous vote, that an inspection report by the ACC would be attached to the Resale Certificate. This report is informational only and not for the purpose of deterring a sale.

    It is strongly recommended, if a property is listed for sale in Sunshine, a request be made right away to the office for an inspection by the ACC. This allows the owner to be prepared, if necessary, to make any corrections prior to requesting the Resale Certificate.

    There is no charge for such an inspection. Any owner who would like to have an inspection may do so. A report will be kept in the office file of your property. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the undersigned.

Dear Friends - 
The evening of July 4 our local Bad Guys were out shopping. They have been in Sunshine a few times and thru the RV Park. Usually, they won't disturb anything except rifle thru your vehicle - especially if the doors are NOT locked. So, please make sure your home and vehicles are secure all the time. HPD is aware. Gracias
