Board of Directors Meeting: Updates for November 2011

The Board has discussed a number of issues at a recent meeting and have agreed upon the following:

Delinquent accounts

As of January 1, 2012 a list of addresses detailing delinquent accounts will be made available to any Member of the Association upon request.

Pest control

The Association will continue to monitor the common areas for rodents and ensure that there are adequate rodent bait stations in place. Residents requiring rodent control on their private property should contact a reputable company for assistance as this service is outside the scope of the Association’s obligations.

To further enhance the health of our environment, rollout trash containers with attached lids will soon replace the existing garbage cans.

Phase V recreation area

The area will continue to be for the use of all residents and their pets. There are no plans at this time to restrict the entry of pets.

Sandyport security decals

The recently issued decals will be replaced by the issue of new decals that will bear the Sandyport logo in lieu of the name. A notice will be sent when they are available.

Dangerous dogs

Owners of dogs that are considered a threat because they demonstrate aggressive behaviour will be asked to remove them forthwith and failure to do so will result in police involvement. The policy applies irrespective of size or breed of animal.

Tambearly school drop off zone

The school gate open times are as follows (during school days only):

  • 8am – 9am
  • 11:45am – 12:30pm
  • 2:30pm – 3:30pm

At all other times the school gate is locked and unattended but may be opened upon request.

Annual General Meeting

The AGM will take place at 5pm on January 20, 2012. Confirmation of the venue will be circulated soon. We are still seeking nominees for Officers and the Board of Directors. All nominees must be current members of the Sandyport Homeowners Association in good standing and preferably reside within the development (although it is not a prerequisite). If you are interested in running for the Board or would like to nominate someone, please email details to

  1. I have to disagree with Lee Farmer. A dog on a leash is NOT always under control. In the past week I have walked past 2 different dogs, both on leashes being held by adults – 1 dog was being walked by it’s owner and the other dog by it’s owner’s housekeeper – and both women had a hard time holding on to the leash as the dogs barked, snarled, and lunged at me walking past. The dog being aggressive that was walked by it’s owner showed the aggression when I was with a friend and her 2 dogs – both very well behaved dogs who all but ignored the other dog – but the aggressive dog owner honestly looked like she was going to lose control of her dog and appears quite frustrated with anyone who walks past with a dog, as though it’s OUR problem and we should leave the area ASAP because she has an out of control animal that she has a hard time dealing with. The other dog showed aggression when I was walking on my own – no other dogs in sight – and it has happened several times now with this dog. This morning it was so bad I was left with the impression that if she let go of the leash, as she looks like she may just because of the force the dog has on it, that it will bite me. It scared the daylights out of me and I shouldn’t have to be scared of a dog on a leash for fear it’ll break free and bite me.

    With that being said, I do agree that “aggressive dogs” needs to be evaluated properly – not all big dogs are aggressive and certainly not all pit bulls are aggressive – but stating that a dog on a leash is not aggressive and therefore not a threat is not an accurate statement.

  2. P>S I was in my car around 9am this morning and saw the brown cut tail dog along with a small black dog walking along Sandport Drive, again unaccompanied.

  3. I would like Sandyport HOA to pay as much attention, if not more, to “dangerous dogs” as they do to Tambearly drop off zone. On two separate occasions a sandy brown dog with a cut tail, snarl and came at me while I was walking for exercise. I was petrified to say the least and now try to avoid going pass there. I noticed that the dog ran into the yard of the second house on the left on Coral Beach Road (I was walking along Sandyport Drive at the time of the incident). Please, I cannot emphasize enough how important it is that dogs should be on a leash and accompanied by a responsible adult. At the very less the dog’s weight should be significantly less than that of the person that’s walking it.

  4. I completely agree with Lee Farmer – “dangerous” (dogs) needs to be defined. However, a lead is not necessarily enough when the person walking the dog cannot control it. We frequently see young children walking large dogs – sometimes more than one large dog. From personal, unpleasant, expereiences, we know that these young children do not have the strength to control the dog(s)and ultimately have to let go of the lead.
