As I write this, we are seeing the Covid-19 threat make it’s way into Citrus County. President Trump has even extended his guidelines through the end of April, and we have received new information from the Governor. As of midnight Thursday April 2nd, the state of Florida is under a Stay At Home executive order. This means that all Non-Essential activities and contact are stopped. Because of this order and the increasing threat to our lives, we are officially closing the Pine Ridge Community complex.
This includes all facilities and venues. Our staff will no longer be in the in the office, and may be working from home where possible. We will be able to take limited phones calls and correspond by E-Mail.
The Tennis Courts, playgrounds, Community Center and all other common areas are now closed until further notice. The horse stables are considered essential and will remain open, but only for the care, feeding and welfare of the animals. Only the horse owners and barn staff will be allowed on the site and strict limits on their numbers are in place. All equestrian events, activities and training will remain suspended.
Regarding all closures, we will evaluate the situation according to state requirements, and when things improve, we will then look at reopening our facilities. Committee meetings are now in the process being handled electronically, and the results so far have been very encouraging. Our Board meetings will also be handled in this same manner and we are working on ways to allow members to view the meetings. Please stay tuned.
Finally, after consulting with Legal Counsel, the Annual Members Meeting is being postponed at least until the state restrictions are lifted and it is considered safe to bring everyone together. We will advise everyone of the new date and time as soon as possible.I know these are the most challenging times that any of us have ever experienced, but I believe that with everyone’s support and understanding, we will get through it and be all the better for it.
I want to thank all of the Board Members, our staff and Property Manager for doing an outstanding job during this difficult time.
Most of all, I want to thank you, our members, for your help and cooperation during this time. It means a lot to have your support. We will continue to do our best and keep you informed as things continue to evolve.

I would like to thank everyone for their patience these past two weeks; the staff has done a tremendous job keeping up with the demand via lockdown. I have been able to work remotely day in and day out. The Board has stayed connected along with the committees and has kept your organization completely up and running. I will be available throughout this quarantine period via email at www.managerassn.com or for emergencies via the office telephone 352-746-0899.
We are looking forward to getting back to normal, as we have many events to plan, and progress to continue with all for the benefit of this wonderful community.
At this time I highly encourage you to stay in touch by signing up to this website and to see your property account (s) sign up under HOA INFO (Login) then register.
I would also like to extend a thank you to the residents for all that you do; many have received letters and we are here to work with you! Now is not the time for stress, you need to be safe and we will get back to those matters that are minor upon the return to normal every day life. If you have any questions, I am here, just reach out to me. Thank you….
Below are some of the common issues:
- Political or Signage
- Over sized for sale signs
- Overgrown hedges or dead trees
- Heavy growth of weeds in landscape beds
- Tall weeds in yards
- Barking Dogs, off leash, and cleaning up after dogs while on walk (#1 complaint)
- Soiled or fencing in poor repair
- Soiled Roof or Driveway
- Paint on home in poor repair
As many of you may know, most all of the above are governed by the Deed Restrictions. I will make a first attempt to reach out to you by telephone should any of the above apply to you. Sending a letter is always my last effort. Barking dogs, dogs off the leash, and cleaning up after your pet is a county ordinance and for the safety of all including the pet must be on a leash, especially at the community complex. As for clean up this is a matter of respect as well as an ordinance, if you need to read the ordinance just scroll down and click on the same. Dogs bark and that is their job to alert you. However, if a dog is left out and unattended for hours at a time, this could create a nuisance for neighbors. Please make sure your pets are secure and are not barking endlessly, your neighbors will be better for it.
