An update from Palm Beach Polo & Country Club Property Owners' Association, Inc. (POA):
Village of Wellington – Tennis House Front Lawn
The Village of Wellington Utility Department, via an independent contractor, has removed several trees and ground cover surrounding a utility lift station in front of the Tennis House on Polo Club Road near the main entry. The large trees and vegetation were interfering with communication devices affecting utility operations during hurricane and storm events. The work is being performed on Tennis House property which is not owned by the POA. Upon completion of the tree work, clusia hedges will be installed to the height of the chain link fence around the lift station to provide concealment along with sod and soil for proper drainage. Work at this location should continue through next week.

Dear Fellow Residents,
Yes, another letter.When events require bringing new areas of interest to your attention or new areas of concern arise, the long arm of Palm Beach Polo will reach out to you.
The Dunes Preserve Fund
Attached please find the details of an annual fund we are creating to accelerate the continuing development of what has become our most precious asset and amenity.
As has been discussed in prior communications, we are still playing catch-up with years of irrigation and infrastructure neglect. The increased usage of the preserve required additional funds to be allocated to the landscaping budget. It is our hope the annual fund will minimize future increases.
Suggestions for the fund may be almost as welcome as donations.
Stribling Way Berm Reclamation
Please visit the Stribling Way berm where mature Ficus trees have recently been installed. Now that the new berm irrigation system is functioning, the microscopic Clusia that had been planted under court orde rto the declarant have finally shown signs of life. Some have reached the towering height of two feet. We expect regular watering will greatly accelerate growth. In a few years they may earn the title, “hedge”.Bare spots are being eliminated with newly planted Clusia.
Polo Club Road Clusia Installation:
The Ficus hedge that had concealed the Tennis House parking areas for years were removed for reasons unknown and unexplained. We have installed a new Clusia hedge. The new hedge is on POA property and the early installation should reap the benefits of the approaching growing season.
All-Night Patrols of the Dunes Preserve:
Commencing shortly, dusk to daylight patrols will be implemented throughout the Dunes Preserve. The patrolling vehicle may be the patrol golf cart or a normal patrol car. From time to time the golf cart patrol may leave the path and patrol closer to the homes. Please do not be alarmed if you see flashing lights. This additional layer of security should be welcome by all. A new fence starting at the corner of Stribling Wayand Pierson Road is under construction and will run the length of the canal to Black Watch Farm. Residents have asked us to emphasize that the Dunes Preserve is closed to all residents from sunset to sunrise with no exceptions.The Executive Committee has requested that were-distribute copies of the rules and regulations covering the preserve and dog parks.They will be mailed later this week. It is crucial that parents understand they are responsible for making their children aware of the regulations and the benefit they bring to the community.
