ATTENTION ALL RESIDENTS:
Dear Queens Park Residents:
You should have already received a large packet in the mail from our management company, Vesta Property Services. Unfortunately, the US Postal Service is now slow and very unreliable. It was also sent via email to all residents for whom we have a valid email address, however emails with large attachments often end up in junk or spam. There is some confusion as to what this is about, so let me clarify:
Our Covenants and Bylaws were first recorded by the Developer on December 23, 1987. Since there have been changes to the Florida Statutes governing Homeowners’ Associations (Chapter 720) and the Marketable Record Title Act (Chapter 712), our attorney has advised us to revitalize our Covenants and Bylaws as outlined in Chapter 720 Homeowners Associations Part III Covenant Revitalization.
The governing documents we need to revitalize are our CURRENT documents; there are no changes to the documents, they remain exactly the same.
The Covenant Revitalization will be voted on at the members meeting on January 19, 2022, at 6:00pm at the Collier County Administrative Building, 3299 Tamiami Trail East, Room 301, Naples, FL 34112. Since a majority (183) approval of the 364 property owners is required for approval by the State of Florida, we urge all owners to vote in favor at the meeting or by returning the attached proxy. If you vote by proxy, you do not have to attend the meeting. It is too late to snail mail your proxy, so please email to Troy J. Rodriguez at email@example.com, fax to 239.919.3178 or you can drop it off on Dana Lark’s front porch at 3392 Hanover Ct. If you did not receive the mailing a complete copy can be found HERE. A copy of the Limited Proxy can be found HERE.

THE LAKES ARE GETTING ATTENTION!
NEW UPDATE: We are waiting for our permit to be approved for stocking Lakes 1&2 with grass eating carp. Carp fish are beneficial in keeping the weeds & algae growth under control.
The condition & health of our Lakes in Queens Park requires ongoing maintenance. In order to improve their condition, we have consulted a couple of different marine & lake maintenance companies and Collier County. In addition, we approached a 3rd party water testing company to assess our lake water. The results indicate that our phosphate level in Lake 2 (Kent Dr) is elevated & needs to be addressed.
Phosphate is found in lawn fertilizer, so we are asking ALL our residents to talk to their landscapers about any fertilizer (or weed n feed) they might be using. In short, if the middle number of three numbers found on fertilizer is higher than two (2), the product contains too much phosphate.
In addition, please make sure your landscaper is NOT directing the grass clippings along the shore into the lake. If you live on Lake 2, Lake 1, the Marsh Lake, or not on a lake at all, the runoff from your grass ends up in all our Lakes. Therefore, we need the help of ALL our residents to rectify this problem. As many residents are aware, there is an expanded level of maintenance going on to deal with weed growth & algae blooms that have been unsightly & problematic. This will continue in the future as we seek to manage the lake issues. Your Board of Directors is taking this very seriously and we want to partner with our residents to keep our Lakes looking beautiful. Please help us by speaking with your landscaper and using the correct fertilizer:
Click here for information from the EPA about how phosphate levels affect the lake water.
Click here for information on The Collier County Fertilizer and Urban Landscaping Ordinance.
Thank you for your patience. We are taking this issue seriously and are looking into new ways to improve the water condition.
If you have any questions or concerns about one of our lakes please contact: Mark Cunningham at 480-616-2102.
YOUR QUEENS PARK HOA BOARD OF DIRECTORS
RESIDENTS: Please DO NOT throw anything down our sewer drains in the streets! Whatever you throw down them ends up in our lakes. We have found dog waste bags in the lakes and most recently paint. Please respect the health of our community and our beautiful lakes. Thank You!
Your 2021 Queens Park Board is:
