Christmas Hats on Mailboxes
Santa and his Elves will be out the day after Thanksgiving to put Christmas hats on all
Marbella mailboxes. Santa is SO busy this time of year that he has requested everyone clean their mailboxes of all spiderwebs and such before he comes. Thank you for being on the NICE list!
As you know, four (4) speed bumps have been installed in the condo community. At the ends of each of these speed bumps is a mailbox bank, fire hydrant or striped stakes. This is to avoid people driving around the speed bumps onto the grass or sidewalk.
Please DO NOT remove the stakes, or tamper with the speed bumps.
These have been installed for the safety of the community.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Smoke Detector Replacement
Smoke detectors need to be replaced every 7-10 years. If you need to replace your smoke detectors, please make sure you replace them with a smoke detector that hard wires into the system. Battery operated detectors will not be detected if they are not hard-wired in.

The amendment that was recently passed at the last Special Meeting held on 10/30/19 has been sent to the Attorney for recording. Once the amendment has been recorded, we will let you know when the new amendment will become effective.
