The Sky Lake Highland Lakes Area HOA will be holding our first general member meeting of the new year on Wednesday, January 29, 2020, at the Highland Oaks Park Building at 7PM. 

We are expecting many of our local government officials to attend including representatives from Miami-Dade Police, Kent Security, Commissioner Heyman’s office, State Senator Pizzo’s office, State Rep. Watson’s office along with School Board Member Dr. Martin Karp among others.

Commissioner Sally Heyman will also be answering questions related to traffic and transportation. In order to make the best use of the limited time available to answer questions, we would prefer to have questions emailed in advance to skylakehighlandlakeshoa@gmail.com

Slow Down! Speed Hump Installations Start April 27th in Highland Lakes.

For years, the residents have been asking for traffic dampening measures. We’ve been asking for a way to discourage through traffic routed from Ives Dairy. We’ve been asking for a way to slow the speeders endangering our children. We’ve been asking for a way to reduce Stop sign runners.

Beginning April 27th, speed humps will be installed in the locations on the map below. These locations were chosen by a team of county engineers following in-depth analysis. It will take approximately four weeks to complete.

We know that many of you will rejoice. We also know that some of you will not be pleased. We have been told that the design being used are low humps (vs. Bumps) and will have no impact on a vehicle’s suspension if traversed at a slow rate of speed–which is the whole point.

Once again, we’d like to thank all the volunteers of the HOA and Commissioner Sally Heyman who made this possible.

Work Zone Starting June 2nd – NE 26th Ave & NE 209th Ter

There will be a widening of NE 26th Avenue at NE 209th street to mitigate the traffic congestion at the Highland Lakes back gate caused by Aventura Waterways school. Work begins the weekend of June 2nd.

This is another accomplishment of your Sky Lake-Highland Lakes Area HOA brought to you by the incessant efforts of board member, Bill Clayton.

Bill’s perseverance in the face of county bureaucracy is a wonder to behold. This traffic improvement is just the latest of his successes, on behalf of your Area HOA Traffic and Infrastructure Committee.

Thank you Bill!
