Dear Las Verdes Homeowner:
OUR Las Verdes community needs your help … here’s why and how!
Las Verdes is 40 years old, with substantial current repairs and continual maintenance needing our attention NOW! Also, we are one future disaster away from costing all of us thousands of $$$$.
Ask yourself: Where will this major repair or disaster money come from, such as the current storm drain pipe project with an estimated cost of at least $1,500,000 !!!
The answer is YOU !! Through likely increased monthly fees year after year, and/or large special assessments !
There is an alternative. READ ON.
Vote FOR the Capital Contribution of $1,500 ! The Buyer pays this one-time fee at the closing of a Las Verdes property ! I hope you agree that a new buyer should NOT receive the same amenities as residents who have lived here for awhile without paying this one-time fee!
Most surrounding communities have a “Capital Contribution”. Las Verdes should too ! Here’s why buyers want Las Verdes:
Location : Outstanding.
Maintenance Fees : Still the lowest in Palm Beach County.
Many Features : 3 pools; pickle ball and tennis courts; walking and bike
paths; bocce; 2 pool tables, remodeled gym, and more.
Safety : 24-hour security guard service.
Tax Base : Very low compared to other communities.
Voting FOR this “Capital Contribution” will make positive impacts for Las Verdes in so many ways, while keeping our property values as high as they can be !
Protect against possible increases! Vote FOR the “Capital Contribution”!
Your Board of Directors is proud to serve you, as we all continue to make Las Verdes the best it can be for all of us !

Current guardhouse procedures for guests:
The Military Trail gate guardhouse is manned around the clock by a security guard. Residents must use the right lane (resident entry lane). All non-residents are required to enter via the left lane of the gate and show the proper picture ID (Proper picture ID means a current valid driver's license (international/foreign licenses are acceptable)...Without ID your guest will be refused entry.
Anyone wishing entry into the community must show their driver’s license to the camera located outside of the entry gate by the stop sign. Read and follow posted instructions. The guard will not open the gate unless the driver’s license has been seen. If the person is having difficulty then the guard will speak on the PA to assist them but will not open the gate until the license has been shown. If the person driving the car does not have a driver’s license to show for any reason, the guard will not open the gate and will deny entry into the community...The guard has the right to see a driver's license and also to record the same in the entry record.
If you have a guest, contractor/vendor or care provider and you want the guard to know when they are to arrive at the property and leave; you will be going directly into the computer system to leave a message, no longer will you be speaking with the security guard, instead, dial this number 561-498-2031 and follow the instructions.
If there is an unannounced visitor (or vendor) and there has been no entry into the system for that visitor, that visitor will be asked to make a U-turn and park on the side and instructed to contact the resident whom in-turn must call the computer entry number ( 561-498-2031) to give the authorization to enter...THE GUARD WILL NOT CALL THE RESIDENT...DO NOT CALL THE GUARD
Owners who sell or rent their properties should transfer gate cards in their possession to the new owners or tenants.
In the case of new owners, failure to transfer it will require the new owner to come to the P.O.A. office (Monday through Friday between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM) to sign in and receive a bar code for their car window or an entry card.
Renters if not supplied bar code for a car window, or gate card by owners, will be required to purchase, at the P.O.A. office, a new card, and/car window bar code.
The Linton resident entry gate is closed every evening at 11:00 PM and will not be reopened until 7:00 AM the following morning. During that time period, all residents must use the resident lane at the Military Trail entrance.
