2021 HOA Board Elections Vote

Generally, the HOA has its annual membership meeting and election of officers and directors for the calendar year in early February. But this year will be different due to necessary Corona Virus protocols.

So that members can still vote, the proposed slate of officers and directors, as developed over several weeks by the nominating committee, is listed at the bottom of this post.

Our by-laws provide that only members who have paid their annual dues ($30) are entitled to vote. So, we ask that members entitled to vote review the slate and send an email with your name and the word “approve” if you vote for the slate. If you choose to not vote for the slate, you may so indicate. The deadline to vote is 5:00 pm on Feb. 5, 2021. The results of the vote will be announced at the Board meeting on February 10, 2021.

Renew or register today at www.skyhighhomes.com to pay 2021 dues and become a member of our HOA.

Short Term Rentals – Message from the HOA President

While our community has numerous short term rental listings, with most owners and renters abiding by the Miami Dade County regulations, some of these rentals are operating outside the guidelines and are severely impacting the quality of life for the surrounding neighbors. As of late, there have been numerous complaints regarding properties being rented throughout the area.

The HOA has tried to work with numerous county agencies to remedy this situation, but the response has not been as effective as it needs to be.

As a result of our conversations, we are recommending the following guidelines as a multi-faceted approach. The commissioners’ office has stated that it will assist in addressing these concerns. We are recommending that all correspondence be copied to Commissioner Heyman’s office at district4@miamidade.gov.

Report any complaint to code enforcement listing all the issues. We recommend that you do this via email at 311@miamidade.gov. You can also download the Miami Dade County 311Direct app and do this via your phone. When reporting your complaint via the app, it gives you the ability to attach photos showing excess cars, trash, or any other issues. This ensures a documented record of your complaint. We are also recommending that you copy your email to cindy.hoskins@miamidade.gov. She is the point person from code compliance who will address these rental issues.

If a rental unit is registered with the county it should have a Certificate of Use (C/U)  posted on the property. You can also check https://w85exp.miamidade.gov/certificatInqWeb/get_cert_for_view.jsp
to see if they are registered. If not, attach in your complaint that it is not registered with the county and out of compliance.

Please call the police non-emergency line at 305-4POLICE to address noise complaints, large crowds, loud or paid admission parties, or any other safety concern. There are no restrictions on time or day for noise complaints. You should insist that you be furnished with a case number to document your concerns showing the police responded. Furnish this case number when forwarding to Cindy Hoskins’ office.

We are hoping the above recommendations help address and eliminate these quality of life issues in our community.  A short term rental listing can be removed, but only by the county after failing to comply with established regulations.  The following link show all regulations and fines dealing with these rentals. https://www.miamidade.gov/building/standards/residential-short-term-vacation-rentals.asp

We are also forming a committee to take on the issue of short term rentals in the community. Please email me at rickschermer2@gmail.com if you would like to join.
