BE SAFE, BE SEEN! Please remember when you run, jog, or walk, do so facing traffic. When on a bicycle, do so with traffic. If you are walking, running or biking at dusk, or early dawn, make sure you are seen. Wear white, yellow, or orange clothes. Also make sure you wear reflective gear and carry a light.
This is just a courtesy notice to remind everyone of our restrictions for fishing in the lakes. Our restriction states:
….Each lot owner shall be responsible for maintaining the lake immediately adjacent to the water’s edge. No persons not living adjacent to lakes shall have use to that lake. Only those persons living on that lake shall have rights to use that lake.
Please be respectful of other homeowners and refrain from fishing on lakes in the neighborhood that are not on your property. We ask that you and your invited house guests only fish on property that is adjacent to your own and not behind other people’s houses. If you are seen fishing on the lakes on other homeowners’ properties, those homeowners have the right to call the police.
If you are a Pelican Point Golf Community resident, there are four lakes in the subdivision which resident can fish in. There is a map on the webpage outlining these lakes. Thank you.
Attention Home/Property Owners: There are some home/property owners that red tip photinias planted near electrical boxes, water/sewer lines, or telephone/cable boxes. These shrubs can grow quite large & have extremely aggressive root systems. The developer originally planted these, and we are asking everyone to PLEASE REMOVE THESE!
Before attempting to dig up red tip photinias or plant new shrubs, you must contact the utility companies and they will come out and mark their lines. Replacement shrubs should be planted a safe distance from any utility boxes.
Should these roots cause damage to utility boxes or cause service interruption, you, as the Home/Property Owner, could be liable. Thank you for your attention & please encourage your friends/neighbors to remove these also!

ICE-In Case of Emergency
This is a standard procedure all paramedics follow at the scene of an accident when they come across your cell phone:
We all carry our mobile phones with name and numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other then ourselves, knows which of these numbers belong to our closest family or friends. If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phones but wouldn't know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency?
Hence this "ICE" (In Case of Emergency) Campaign, the concept of "ICE" is catching quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As cell phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during an emergency under the name "ICE".
The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, there were always cell phones with patients, but they didn't know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose. In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialing the number you have stored as "ICE'.
For more than one contact name, enter "ICE1", "ICE2", and "ICE3" etc. A great idea that will make a difference. Let's spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our cell phones today.
