From Dan Barrivecchio Chairman – H I G C C CDD board

July 22, 2023

I wanted to convey to all that today the Tampa City Council approved the CDD’s petition to vacate the roads back to the District with a unanimous vote. This was our first step in regaining control of the operation of our gates. As most may recall the developer built the entranceways and guard shacks with purpose and were manned once. The developer was mandated by the City of Tampa to not stop any vehicle that was traversing over the city-owned roads. This jurisdiction over the roadway was our main impediment to operating the gate system similar to our peer communities do along the Cross Creek corridor. In the ensuing weeks, we will obtain a signed agreement from the City and re-engage our efforts to install new infrastructure for new state-of-the-art security at our entrance points which will be enhanced beyond what our peer communities have. A timetable will be established as soon as we can line things up and we will convey the same to you all. This still will be accomplished as promised within our budget assessments with NO impacted increase.

We have budgeted appropriately to take on the future costs of maintenance and created sufficient reserves for this project that will meet the needs of maintaining the infrastructure. This effort to fix the problem we inherited was not an easy task to accomplish. I want to thank the entire CDD Board, both The Master Association and Nassau Point HOA for being supportive and patient throughout these many frustrating years. Most importantly I want to thank the residents for their support and vote on this which was some time ago when we began this process. As we develop more information we will bring it to you on platforms such as this, email blasts, or the website. You may always attend a workshop or meeting to ask questions as we welcome your input.

Thank You!

Dan Barravecchio- Chairman Heritage Isles CDD
