PELICAN C n e w s VOLUME XLI NO. 7 “All the news that fits” General Manager Connie Lang, will be leaving Pelican Cove in early September. She has been offered and has accepted the position of General Manager at the Sanctuary Resort on Longboat Key. August 2 & 16 Movie Night 7 p.m. – Pavilion Board President Gary Gulden along with the board officers have taken the following actions to ensure stability during this time of transition: August 13 & 27 September 6 & 20 Movie Night 7 p.m. – Pavilion September 10 Happy Hour 5:30 p.m. – Wilbanks AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2015 Connie Lang Is Moving On Special Events Happy Hour 5:30 p.m. – Wilbanks VE • A Search Committee, consisting of the four Board Officers has been formed.  Advertisements for the position will be placed with services known for attracting candidates with the level of experience that associations of the scale and caliber of Pelican Cove demand. • In order to assure unbroken continuity of leadership during this transition, an interim leadership organization has been established and will take effect immediately upon Connie’s departure. It is composed of our Buildings and Maintenance Supervisor, Jack Stevens, as acting GM, working together with Grounds Supervisor Mike O’Byrne and Business Administrator Sarah Metcalf. ATTENTION: PELICAN COVE OWNERS Call for Pelican Cove Board of Directors Candidates. A vacancy has occurred on the Pelican Cove Board.  Director Paul Cincinnato is moving from PC and will no longer be able to serve. A special meeting of the Board will be held at 9:00 a.m. on August 11 in the Pelican Pavilion for the purpose of electing a new director to serve until the February 2016 Annual Meeting. We invite all owners with an interest in serving as a director to submit a resume to the office by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, August 3. In an email bulletin to owners, Board of Directors President Gary Gulden said, “This action is necessary because the likelihood of completing our search prior to Connie’s last day is very remote. And once we have made an offer to our chosen candidate and received acceptance of it, that individual will need to provide notice to their employer. Thus, we will need leadership continuity at minimum well into the late autumn. Connie will begin immediately working with these individuals (and they with their respective staffs) to prepare them for this role. In the meantime, normal PC business operations continue uninterrupted. All of the various summer projects and management and staff activities and operations proceed as planned and on schedule.” “This comes as a complete and very disappointing surprise as Connie has been doing a superb job, has built a fine management team and staff, and enjoys the admiration and appreciation of the PC community. … Once Connie’s initial intentions were made known continued on page 12 INSIDE THIS ISSUE To the Editor . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 2 Association Anniversary . . . . . . . . 4 New Vaults Help . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 7 President’s Post . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3 Connie’s Corner . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 5 Classifieds . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 15

AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2015 2 Dear Pelican Cove Family: PC NEWS OCTOBER ISSUE DEADLINES: It is with mixed emotions that I take on a new challenge in my career, that of managing The Sanctuary at Longboat Key. I am excited about experiencing a new learning environment but I will dearly miss Pelican Cove and our Pelican Cove family. The opportunity to manage Pelican Cove has been an opportunity of a lifetime as there may not be a similar place anywhere else in the world. Where else does a manager get to manage a large-scale condominium association situated in a botanical garden, located adjacent to the bay? It is wonderful that the owners who inhabit Pelican Cove continually strive to properly maintain and improve the Cove. I am proud that I have had the opportunity to help in these endeavors and I have enjoyed working with the board members, the committee members, and the amazing staff persons that Pelican Cove has in place. Articles – Friday, Sept. 18 Advertising – Monday, Sept. 21 Editorial Staff Editor................... Alice Hawrilenko I so appreciate the opportunity that I have had to serve Pelican Cove. I hope that we will stay in touch. Features Editor.... Donna Anderson Proofreaders........ Nancy Arnzen Leny Cohen Judy Katz Linda Ritt Cartoonist............ Jean Gomoll Board Liaison...... Lisa Yellin Production........... Leslie Walter Board President.... Gary Gulden The Pelican Cove News is published periodically by the Board of Directors of the Pelican Cove Condominium Association, primarily to keep Association members informed on matters bearing on their use and enjoyment of their Pelican Cove property. Members of the Association are invited to suggest items for publication. Deadline for advertising is the 20th of each month. The Pelican Cove News is published monthly except for the summer when it is published bimonthly. The address for the News is: Pelican Cove News 1615 Pelican Point Drive Sarasota, FL 34231-6721 Sincerely, Connie Lang To the Editor: When I heard that Connie Lang, the General Manager, was leaving us, I was actually despondent because I knew it was going to be almost impossible to find someone capable of replacing her. I have lived here for 35 years and have seen GMs come and go, and there has never been one like Connie Lang. She brought a tremendous array of talents to our community. Her knowledge of horticulture, our finances, structures, maintenance, and the management of a large staff was deep and thorough. Even more important was that she got things done and she got them done right, and with taste. I think if we were to tally the improvements she has made to Pelican Cove in all areas it would dwarf the accomplishments of any of two or three of her predecessors. The night before I found out she was leaving, I was telling some newcomers at the Harbor House pool how fortunate they were to have her as a General Manager and that I hoped that Pelican Cove could keep her for many, many years because she is the reason Pelican Cove looks even better than it did when I first came 35 years ago. We’re going to miss you Connie. Thanks for the time you spent with us.  Justin Spring, GR201 (941) 966-5674 Editorial email: pcneditors@gmail.com Advertising email: leslie@pelicancovecondo.com Website: www.pelicancovecondo.com PC Office email: pelicancove@comcast.net Budget Workshop The 2016 Budget Workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, September 30, at 1 p.m., in the Harbor Club. Anyone interested in the annual budget process is encouraged to attend this meeting. Copies of the proposed budget will be available at the office beginning September 29 and at the meeting.  Letters to the Editor: The Pelican Cove News will consider publishing letters to the Editor.

AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2015 3 President’s Post BOARD OF DIRECTORS/ COMMITTEE MEETINGS Dear Neighbors Well, if you have read this far, you have learned the disappointing news that Connie Lang will be leaving us. Committee meetings scheduled for the months of August/September. Check Channel 195, the PC website or the Office for any changes. It is natural that a leadership transition – especially an unexpected one – is accompanied by a degree of uncertainty and anxiety about how the organization will fare. As you experience these feelings, I urge you to take comfort from the many important accomplishments Connie’s leadership has brought about over her time here. Connie’s work leaves Pelican Cove in a position to carry on during this transition. Board Meeting Tuesday, August 11 – 9 a.m. Pelican Pavilion Board Workshop Tuesday, September 22 – 1:30 p.m. Harbor Club Board Meeting Tuesday, September 29 – 1:30 p.m. Pelican Pavilion The most important and critical asset that Connie has created for us is a very strong, cohesive, self-motivated team of managers and staff members who display genuine dedication to the quality of their work and to this unique community. Moreover, there is sufficient leadership depth in this organization to handle capably the extra effort needed during this transition. Budget Workshop Wednesday, September 30 – 1 p.m. Harbor Club We all notice and benefit from the way this outstanding group of people operates day to day. Elsewhere in this issue are more reports of many other improvements of the Finance Committee type we can also see and enjoy ourselves. But there are very important improvements that have been made under Connie’s leadership that are much less visible, and Wednesday, September 16 – 1 p.m. contribute substantially to Pelican Cove’s underlying operational and managerial Wilbanks Conference Room capability and strength. Here are just two examples of what I’m referring to: Harbor Committee • A modern, integrated financial accounting and reporting system has been put Wednesday, September 2 – 9 a.m. into place that produces far more timely, consistent, and detailed information – Wilbanks Conference Room and with much less staff effort and expense. This vastly improves the quality of information available for the decision-making of our management, our Treasurer and Finance Committee, and the Board. • Pelican Cove has now obtained a Master Permit from the Sarasota County Building Department which lets our Buildings and Maintenance Department initiate important repairs and improvements quickly, avoiding the time and expense involved with obtaining a permit for every project. Certainly, we will all miss Connie. I hope you will join me in wishing her every success and fulfillment in her new opportunity. Especially, express your thanks for the strong and resilient organization she has built and left for us, which will serve us well through this transition and beyond. Gary Gulden, President Attention Boats, Kayaks & Canoes IN MEMORIAM We mourn the passing of Helene Altschuler All boat slip and kayak/canoe lease renewal payments are due by Wednesday, September 30. Don’t forget to sign and return the Lease Extension & Payment Invoice form along with your payment.

AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2015 4 Association Anniversary – Save the Date! Pelican Cove University By Virginia Tashian By JoEllen DeMarco On Sunday, November 15, there will be a party in Pelican Cove to celebrate PCCA’s 35th Anniversary as one association, vs. the seventeen original condo associations. The Social Club, founded in 1977 (a talented group of party planners, and the organization believed to be PC’s longest ongoing club) will partner with members of the Communications Committee and others in the community to make this a fun and festive occasion, open to all residents. The second summer session of Pelican Cove University has started with Great Books discussions led by Toby Cosin at the Pavilion on Tuesday afternoons. Thanks to the generosity of past Great Books participants we were able to obtain enough loaned copies of the necessary books so no one had to purchase one. The summer session will continue in August with David Triggle’s class which will start at 10 a.m., August 13, also at the Pavilion. This class has an intriguing title, “The decline and fall of almost everything”. It will run for four weeks. So, save the date, and meanwhile review or pick up a copy of The History of Pelican Cove, available in the PC Office for $15, for fascinating background information. From the Library Corner By Betty Mitchell A few modifications have been made to the Pelican Cove library at the Pavilion over the summer that should be called to the attention of the residents. 1. The Biography section has been relabeled by the person featured and not by the author. 2. We have added a new section called “New Arrivals” after receiving a wonderful suggestion from one of the residents. As appropriate donations are received, they will be properly labeled along with an additional green sticker. They will be placed in the end cap shelving (next to the end cap that holds the DVD’s) for a determined length of time before being shelved in the appropriate section. 3. The audio book tapes and movie tapes have been donated to the Goodwill due to newer technology available. 4. We will continue to supply audio book CD’s. Since we only have a few, we would appreciate additional donations to the collection. 5. There is one shelf on the end cap bookcase that has books labeled “Please Return to Pelican Cove Library.” These are a collection of stories by various authors in one book and therefore cannot be shelved by a single author. 6. Lastly, an attempt has been made to further classify the non-fiction books with a sticker, denoting type: war, adventure, financial, etc. Thank you to our many residents who continually donate their books, movies, magazines and music so others can enjoy them, too. The Fall session of PCU will have a lecture/discussion by Justin Spring on “The Five Theories of the Creation of the Sphinx”. He will hold this session at the Harbor Club on December 1, 2015, at 1:30. Justin began his discussions about his Egyptian project last December. As part of the 35th Anniversary of Pelican Cove project, the University will be presenting a class, starting in January - Tales Out of Pelican Cove – Exploring the Non-fiction Short Story, presented by Jan Hasselbring.  With the goal of writing a tale for the “Tales Out of Pelican Cove” project, the class will explore the evolution of the non-fiction short story, study examples, entertain guest writers, and practice writing our own stories as part of the 35th Anniversary of Pelican Cove project. This course is for anyone interested in writing, and perhaps sharing, an experience from their life. The full University schedule has been completed, and it is a full one. There will be many favorites returning, plus the introduction of some new teachers and courses. In addition, some veteran teachers will surprise you with completely different offerings.  Social Club News – Octoberfest Planned! By Beth Duggan The first activity this fall will be Pelican Cove’s version of Octoberfest.  Mark your calendars for September 27 so you can join in the festivities and enjoy German beer and food.  Ilse Soar will be hosting the party so contact her to volunteer or if you have any questions.  Leiderhosen anyone? On May 24, the Pelican Cove Social Club hosted the last formal event of the season – a Memorial Day Brunch.  Attendees enjoyed a variety of deli sandwiches following a short program honoring our military attendees.

AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2015 6 Far Harbor Pool Building (Connie Lang photo) Pavilion Path Landscape (Connie Lang photo) Improvements to the Far Harbor Bathhouse Path Extension – North Side Pavilion Pool By Jack Stevens, Buildings Maintenance Coordinator By Mike O’Byrne, Grounds Maintenance Coordinator The Far Harbor pool bathhouse received some much needed maintenance/improvements in June. Over the years, the building had sagged due to failing structural wood posts on the back side of the enclosure. The building was raised and leveled, the failing posts were removed, and new concrete supports were set in place. Once the building’s support system was corrected the old vinyl flooring was replaced with a brick paver system. The Grounds Crew completed the extension of the shell path on the north side of the Pavilion, from Pelican Cove Road to Treehouse Circle. This project gives the dog walkers another direction to walk their dogs and stay within the Pelican Cove Rules We Live By, and maintains some privacy for the Treehouse residents. The new paver flooring provides a finish that is non-slip, even when walked on with wet feet. In order to install this flooring, a concrete composite board was installed throughout the building. This concrete based sub-floor allows the tile finish which could not be applied to the existing wood structure. The rooms were trimmed with a paver base and the end result provides a quality, slip-free environment for the swimmers at this pool. The bathhouse will be receiving new toilet partitions and doors in the coming months to complete the repairs and maintenance of this building. We will be installing a higher quality non-slip flooring to the Wilbanks pool bathhouse in the near future. We hope everyone enjoys these upgrades made to enhance the quality and safety of our pool areas. Quote of the Month The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. Alan Watts English Philosopher Many new plants were added and some were moved so that the path could be extended. Additional parking spaces were constructed for golf carts so that when the employees work in the Pavilion the carts will be out of the pathway. Road Work Underway By Alice Hawrilenko With the completion of the storm water vault installations, the final phase of an extensive road work project which began in 2013 is now underway. Facilities Maintenance Manager Jack Stevens anticipates the work will be completed the first week in September. The work includes parking spaces and carports. Owners will be notified to move their vehicles as the work progresses. In preparation for this work, trees have been removed because roots were causing damage to the roads and carport surfaces. This was particularly evident on Pelican Point Drive where it has been necessary to remove a number of trees including the mammoth schefflera that camouflaged building 1528. The trees will be replaced but according to grounds crew leader Henry Sasser, the variety of replacement plantings has yet to be determined.

AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2015 7 New Vaults Help Little Sarasota Bay By Jack Stevens, Buildings Maintenance Coordinator Vault Installation almost done! (Alice Hawrilenko photo) Storm Water Sluiceway (Connie Lang photo) Run-off into the waters along our coast is a serious problem. Pelican Cove has adopted practices to limit the amount of chemicals we use that could end up in the water system. We do not use excessive fertilizer or chemical treatments on our vegetation, and our pest control activities are designed to avoid allowing poisons into our waters. One thing that we have wanted to reduce is the amount of silt we allow to flow into the water system. Silt is a solid dust like sediment that water and wind can carry and deposit on land and in the water. Silt is made up of rock and mineral particles that are larger than clay, but smaller than sand. When silt settles to the bottom of a body of water it has a smothering effect. It can kill plants or other small organisms, smother fish eggs and young aquatic life, and cover rocks where fish food lives. If the silt does not settle to the bottom, the water ends up being dirty or muddy. Muddy water does not allow light to pass through for use by plants and other aquatic life. Once again, Pelican Cove has taken action on the community’s commitment to being good stewards of the environment. For many years, there has been much discussion about what Pelican Cove can do to help save Little Sarasota Bay. Many ideas have been brought forward by the community, and researched by staff and committees, for ways to reduce the damage our run-off does to the Bay. After much discussion with the community, committees, and our civil engineer it was decided that one of the best plans to reduce the amount of silt that PC adds to the harbor waters, and ultimately Little Sarasota Bay, was to install large silt collection boxes at locations where our road run-off enters the harbor. In late June, we removed three existing catch basins that collect run-off from our roads prior to it entering the harbor. These existing catch basins were a standard size for their use and held roughly 90 gallons of water. While they had been retrofitted with filter systems, the boxes were too small to successfully capture the silt and solids that were running off into our harbor. These catch basins were replaced with new vaults specifically designed to collect silt. Each of our three new concrete vaults holds 1,250 gallons of water. While collecting almost 3,750 gallons of run-off, the vaults capture silt inside the concrete boxes instead of letting it flow into our harbor. When the vaults accumulate enough silt, we will have them pumped out and the silt will be properly disposed of instead of settling into our harbor and Little Sarasota Bay. This project was approved and part of the funding was paid for by the Community Foundation Fund to Save Little Sarasota Bay. Pool Safety By Lisa Yellin This summer, as in past summers, we have been experiencing damage at several of our pools. Let’s please remember and remind our guests about PC pool safety: • The ladders at the pools are for climbing in and out – they are not to be used as equipment to do handstands or any other amusements/gymnastics. • Pool lights are there for safety reasons and are not to be pocked, prodded or used to stand on or as steps to get out of the pool. • Poles and rings are emergency safety equipment and should not be used as toys. The only flotation devices allowed in our pools are noodles, “swimmies” and life jackets. Rafts, tubes and other inflatables are not permitted. Pool use rules are posted at each pool. Our community relies on its residents and guests to abide by them in order to insure a safe and enjoyable environment.

AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2015 8 Rip Rap Area – End of Bayhouse Point By Mike O’Byrne A new Drainage Box was installed at the end of Bayhouse Point Drive for additional filtration of pollutants and sediment that can potentially enter Little Sarasota Bay. The entire rip rap was removed and cleaned and prior to it being reinstalled, a new filter cloth was put down to help prevent the rip rap from sinking into the soil. We also added another four yards of rip rap. The shell path was widened to make it more convenient to transport the kayaks from their storage area to the launching area. The old medical office building at Pelican Plaza is no more (Jack Livingston photo) Pelican Plaza Update When the road is repaved the configuration will be altered a bit so that we can direct the water flow into the rip rap area. By doing this we anticipate less wash out of the shells and better filtration of sediment that would otherwise flow into the Bay. By Alice Hawrilenko As many summer residents have noticed, the old medical office building which backed up to the landscape buffer recently installed by Benderson as part of its rehabilitation of Pelican Plaza, has been demolished. In a note to General Manager Connie Lang, Virginia Tashian asked whether or not the demolition was a surprise to management and if there was any update on the planned restaurant for the site. Like many of us, Virginia is especially concerned about the health of the pond on the corner of the property. Connie replied, “Virginia: Yes, the demolition was a surprise to management. Benderson has no current plans to build a restaurant. It (Benderson Corp) is still in negotiations with Robert Morris regarding the Denny’s restaurant parcel. At present it appears that a parking lot will replace the demolished building. Bayhouse Point Riprap and Catch basin (Connie Lang photo) Grounds Manager Mike O’Byrne will be meeting with the Benderson Landscape Manager soon to discuss the details of the extension of the reclaimed water line along Vamo Road and will continue to discuss the health of the buffer landscape and of the pond.” The PCNews will touch base with Mike before the next issue to see what progress has been made with regard to the pond and the restaurant which was widely and publicly alluded to by Benderson during its negotiations with PC over the landscape buffer. Since the last issue, SportsCuts has opened in the plaza adjacent to Lucky Nails. Real Estate Sales Pelican Cove has had 30 real estate sales year-to-date through July 2015 as compared with 41 through July 2014. Summer Fun “Kayak-Canoe-Board Team”!

AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2015 9 “Hi Mom and Dad in heaven, you are staring right down at me through that cloud! I can feel and see you.  I know that you are the reason we came upon this place, just happened on it, and you are making it so perfect for me.”            I invite my parents to join us as the black suited server arrives with my main course. We sit on four lush red chairs. A work of art, two small thick cuts of fillet of duckling, topped with almonds surrounded with soft lush kumquats, crystallized quinces, sitting on an orange sauce surrounded by green herb leaves and four purple vegetable leaves fan out. Dots of the gravy artistically adorn the orange sauce.  The meal is prepared gluten free for me, and served with gluten free bread for my special diet. Amboise Chateau (Public Domain taken from Wickipedia) The Loire River Valley An Entertaining and Special Experience In My Life By Jane Aptekar Krantz (Here is another example of a Tale Out Of Pelican Cove. See page 4 for more information on this program.)  In a restaurant of terraced gardens, just below the Amboise Chateau, bordered by high cave dwellings dug into slopes of rocks, now used to store wines, I sit quietly. I stare out over the Loire River, one of the last wild rivers in Europe. From the second story I gaze out over small grassy plants in the window ledge, through lush green trees, to a single fishing boat in the river. The long grey barge has a large wooden shack on its hull. It is used to catch fish, and eel in the middle of the night, but only in the month of May, and expressly for the restaurant. Trees and greenery and dried brown grasses, blow in the slight wind. The river is settling in for evening. Seven-thirty p.m. is considered early dinner hour in the French culture. The sky blue up high is waning, and offset by a single, jagged white cloud, that passes by quickly. At that moment one of the male staff, clad in a tuxedo like suit with pointy black shoes, that clank rapidly on the wood floors, comes, and meticulously places my fork upside down on the yellow linen tablecloth. A sharp steak knife is placed with steadfast accuracy on the right. My taste buds and tongue have suddenly come alive, for the first time in years, as I bite a morsel of Fois Gras, duck liver, thinly layered with dried plums, acid dates, and blackcurrant jelly. A single green leaf adorns the plate with four little dots of liquids. My mouth is a buzz. Just as I stare up at the passing white cloud, my heart opens up smiling – “Dad, I remember you telling me of your trips to the Bordeaux region of France where you were wined and dined in chateaus and castles. As a food and drink editor, you were always eating fine meals like this. When I was a college student back then, I felt a little jealous that you and mom went off and left me back home by myself.”   My mother chimed in, “Yes, Janie, we understand, and so we wanted you to have a special dining experience like this, now that you are in France. We found you a fine meal that could accommodate your gluten free diet, since that is what keeps you so healthy. My father added, “You are older now, and have a wise, broad perspective on who you want to be, and what you do in life. Just enjoy your evening in this present moment, and the rest of your trip will be as fine.” Mom and Dad say goodbye and quickly, vanish back into the white cloud that passes overhead. “Thank you for seeing me through this,” I call out to them. “I’m so glad to be here, it’s perfect.”  And then I turn to resume tasting my meal.

10 Flood Insurance For Your Unit – Something You Should Know By Gary Gulden You are no doubt aware that our Association is required to obtain flood insurance for our buildings. What you may not know, though, is the extent of the coverage the Association’s flood policy provides for damage to the interior of your unit. By the terms of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), our Association’s flood insurance covers “Building Property” which includes in addition to the building and foundation, the following unit interior items: • Electrical and plumbing systems • Central air conditioning equipment, furnaces, and water heaters • Refrigerators, cooking stoves and built-in appliances such as dishwashers • Permanently-installed carpeting over unfinished flooring • Permanently-installed paneling, wallboard, bookcases • Kitchen, bath, and other permanently-installed cabinets (in their condition as originally constructed) • Window blinds • Debris removal Of course, there are many items in your unit that the Association’s flood insurance policy does NOT cover among which are “Personal Contents and Property” such as: • Your personal belongings such as clothing, furniture, electronic equipment, art • Curtains, area rugs • Portable microwave ovens, portable dishwashers, clothes washers and dryers • The extra cost of upgrades you may have made to the built-in kitchen, bath, and other cabinetry in your unit A reputable insurance broker familiar with condominium insurance should be well aware of all of this, and should make sure that any flood insurance you purchase for your unit takes into account what is covered by the Association’s policy, and does not duplicate that protection. But, it’s important for you to know this, too, to be certain you are not insuring more of your unit’s contents than you intend or need to cover. Finally, our Association’s insurance agent reminds us that the maximum coverage available under NFIP is for 80% of replacement value for our buildings and the unit interior items mentioned above. In the very remote case of a total loss of a building due entirely to flood (i.e. no accompanying windstorm damage), the insurance proceeds go first to the replacement of the structure. Since our maximum coverage is 80%, there would not be sufficient funds for replacement of unit interiors. That risk is extremely small, but needs to be mentioned here. AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2015 Important Rules on the Use and Storage of Barbecues and Propane Tanks By Bob Kolk, Rules Committee Whether you are full-time residents or snowbirds, it is extremely important to understand and adhere to the State of Florida’s Regulations and Pelican Cove’s Rules We Live By on the use and storage of barbecues and propane tanks. According to the National Fire Prevention Association 6,000 barbecue fires and explosions occur annually. They cause 20,000 injuries and 20 deaths. We don’t want Pelican Cove to be part of these statistics. Florida’s Fire and Safety Regulations, FFPC 5th ED. 2015, which are reflected in our Pelican Cove Rules, must be complied with. They are pretty straight forward: 1. For other than a single or two-family dwelling, no hibachi, gas-fired grill, charcoal grill shall be used or kindled on any balcony or under any overhanging portion or within ten feet of any multifamily structure. Electric Grills are permitted. (NFPA 1:10.11.6.1) 2. The Florida Fire Prevention Code also prohibits the storage or use of L.P. tanks in quantities greater than 2.1 pounds above the first floor or in any apartment or condominium. Therefore L.P. (Propane) gas grills, (15 pounds tanks), cannot be stored on a balcony. It is important to note that L.P. gas cylinders cannot be stored inside the residential unit or anywhere above the first floor, (inside or outside). (FFPC 5th ED. 2015) So, what does that mean for our Pelican Cove barbecue chefs? We cannot barbecue on a balcony. We must barbecue outside, on the ground at least 10 feet from a unit. We must store gas grills outside, on the ground unless the propane tank is removed or emptied. Filled tanks must be stored outside. Because of the Hurricane rules, we strongly recommend that snowbirds empty (burn-off) their propane tanks before leaving. Then the barbecue and tank can be stored anywhere. Because of the danger of explosion, we also recommend that all gas barbecues be stored on the ground ten feet from a unit. Both of these are being considered for Pelican Cove rules. If you see any violations of these rules, report them to the office. Why all the fuss? Propane gas is generally safe to use, but it can be very explosive if it accumulates in a space and is ignited. Propane gas is heavier than air. When you open the valve on your barbecue. The gas flows into your barbecue. Being heavier, it pools and settles in the lower portion, especially if the lid is down! If your igniter quickly lights the fire, you are fine. If it doesn’t, you could be in trouble. After four or five tries you must turn the valve off and air things out for five minutes to avoid the big bang! Always keep the lid open when you start the fire. If you have a gas leak into your barbecue the same problem can happen. Each time you barbecue, raise the lid, air it out and smell for rotten eggs. If you smell them do not ignite! A cigarette can also ignite a propane explosion. Be careful! The fixtures and lines connecting a propane tank to a barbecue should be checked twice a year for leaks by a Professional (By sponging soapy water on the lines and checking for air bubbles). It is also good to clean off rust and oil. Bon Appetite, and be a good 10 foot neighbor.

AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2015 11 Landscape Debris Near Your Unit By Sam Alaimo The grounds crew trims and cleans the landscape in your neighborhood of the Cove on six separate visits each year. In between the visits, you are allowed to sweep or blow the walkways and remove landscape debris in your area. Place any landscape debris next to the road near your unit before 3 p.m. in order to have the grounds crew remove the debris that day. You may also submit a Work Request if something extraordinary needs to be done before the crew returns to your neighborhood on its next visit. Brookhouse deck in progress (Connie Lang photo) Structural Changes to Brookhouse Decks By Jack Stevens, Buildings Maintenance Coordinator The planned structural changes to critical Brookhouse elevated decks is nearing completion. After identifying seven decks that required complete removal and rebuilding this summer, our carpenters were temporarily pulled off scheduled repairs to the Glenhouse neighborhood. The Brookhouse decks were becoming safety concerns. There was significant discussion, including a town-hall style meeting, on how to complete this work with the least amount of interference to the interiors of affected lowerThe mammoth Schefflera which graced the front of building 1518 has been level units. Once the final design was approved, we had the removed. As the photo shows, roots of this tree had invaded the ground structural engineering completed and obtained permits for under the carport damaging the pavement. (Alice Hawrilenko photo) the new system to be installed. The final design, although challenging, has worked very well and the transition to a post and beam structural system has New Owners been accomplished without NEWCOMER UNIT FROM: CITY, STATE/COUNTRY limiting the use or size of the Richard & Karen Bianchi HA214 East Islip, NY 11730 affected courtyards. We expect to identify more elevated decks that will require this level of rebuild when the carpenters move into the Brookhouse neighborhood in 2016, but we have addressed many safety concerns with this most recent work. Having the ability to make this type of repair will continue to be an asset to the community as disruption to the interior of units is limited and future maintenance can be accomplished in a less disruptive and more efficient manner.

AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2015 12 Connie Lang Is Moving On from page 1 to me, a strong effort was made to understand the terms of her offer, to stress our confidence in her and our intense desire for her to remain, and to explore ways that we could respond to this competitive offer and induce her to stay here. Unfortunately, in the end, we were not able to change her mind.” Lang, a Professional Community Association Manager, (one of 1200 nationwide) came to Pelican Cove in February, 2011. She went into action immediately, putting together her management team and responding to the demands of a changing and increasingly environmentally sensitive nature loving community. Her legacy is evident to all of us as we read this issue of the PCNews and as we walk the grounds of PC. Asked for a list of her accomplishments she writes, “As a result of negotiating a service agreement with Terminix, for the first time in Pelican Cove’s history, Pelican Cove has a proactive fumigation and treatment program for subterranean termites. As a result of purchasing a pipe camera, for the first time in Pelican Cove’s history, Pelican Cove has the capability to resolve long-term rodent issues related to openings in sewer pipes inside walls of residential buildings Water fire - and to identify sections of storm water pipes that have been clogged by tree roots and dirt. Pelican Cove is now able to clear those clogs, allowing storm water to appropriately run into catch basins and vaults … It seems that I could author a book about the many projects that we accomplish daily at Pelican Cove. It is with mixed emotions that I take on a new challenge in my career, that of managing The Sanctuary at Longboat Key. I am excited about experiencing a new learning environment but I will dearly miss Pelican Cove and my Pelican Cove family. The opportunity to manage Pelican Cove has been an opportunity of a lifetime as there may not be a similar place anywhere else in the world. It is wonderful that the owners who inhabit Pelican Cove continually strive to properly maintain and improve the Cove. I am proud that I have had the opportunity to help with these endeavors and I have enjoyed working with the board members, the committee members, and the amazing staff persons that Pelican Cove has in place. I hope that we will stay in touch.
