Parking Safely in our Community
Posted on Jul 23rd, 2019

Our HOA governing documents prohibit parking on the grass, easements or sidewalks associated with any lot or common area. Any vehicle parked on HOA common area is at risk of being towed at the owner’s expense. Commercial vehicles are only allowed on a temporary, short-term basis while vendors perform services for homeowners. Street parking should be used as a last resort. When parking on the street, always ensure that there’s enough room for an emergency vehicle to safely pass.

Picking up After Your Pet
Posted on Jul 23rd, 2019

Pet owners, please remember to always carry a small plastic bag with you when out walking your pet to pick up pet waste immediately. Hillsborough County Animal Ordinance 00-26, Section 14, requires immediate removal of waste from all public areas and private property of owners.  First offense fines are $50, and a second offense is $100. Your HOA Board thanks all our responsible pet owners!


Safety Tips Regarding Local Wildlife
Posted on Jul 23rd, 2019

Chestnut Forest is home to a variety of wildlife, including potentially dangerous creatures like water moccasins, alligators, and coyotes. Here are a few facts and safety tips to keep you and your family safe:

  • Water moccasins (aka cottonmouth snakes): They often burrow near the edge of water. They sun themselves during the day, but are the most active at night.
  • Alligators: Never feed alligators on land or by throwing scraps in the water. Alligators are most active between dusk and dawn.
  • Coyotes: They’re active year round. Coyotes play an important role in the ecosystem by helping to keep rodent populations under control. However, they can prey on domestic cats and small dogs.
