Presidents Message June 2020

24 Jun

Hello IOP Residents,

I wanted to start of by saying that I hope everyone is healthy and safe. I know that
we are all in an odd and difficult time. We can and will get through this, but for now practice cleanliness and social
distancing to help stop the spread of the Corona Virus. Please adhere to all Local, State and CDC recommended
precautions and guidelines. We will be back to normal as soon as safely possible.
With the re-opening of the country in progress, we’ve removed most of the temporary restrictions at the
park, consistent with the latest guidance from Governor DeSantis and Orange County Mayor Demmings. Here’s what
has changed and what hasn’t.
• Social Distancing: Still in effect, although groups larger than ten people are now allowed as long as there is adequate space to maintain six feet of distance among people.
• Pavilion: The pavilion is still available for member use. We have added additional picnic tables for use, spreading them out to promote the required social distancing among families. Please don’t move the tables.
• Sanitizing: No change. We still have regular cleaning, but we are not sanitizing any of park equipment or facilities. Bring your own sanitizer to use as you like.
• Private Event Reservations: Private event reservations are back on. Keep the groups under 50 people and
obey all park/event rules. Bring your own sanitizer and practice social distancing
• Basketball Court and Playground Area: Available for use, consistent with the social distancing as required by
the state and county.
• Boat Ramp: The boat ramp will remain open, but we ask that people not congregate at the end of the dock or
under the pavilion.
July 4th is quickly approaching. There will be a parade leading into the
park. For everyone’s safety, food will not be served. We are also asking to limit
the event to members only. This will ensure that we all can maintain a safe and
comfortable distance apart. More details are included in the newsletter.
In preparation for the July 4th event, there will be a park clean-up happening
on June 27 from 8AM-12PM. If you are interested in helping to clean the
park, grab your gloves/rake/shovel/broom…etc. and come on down.
Several complaints have been made about speeding and observations that people aren’t locking the park gate behind them. Please obey the speed limits in
the neighborhood. From the IOP sign (heading south)-LMJ Rd is 35mph and all
side streets (including the back roads and 5-acre properties) are 25mph. There
is no reason to go faster than 35mph anywhere in the neighborhood. Slow
down. In regards to locking the gate…lock the gate every time you go in or out
of gate. Thanks in advance.
