Single Family Homeowners Association

Dear Neighbor,

We welcome you to The Homes of Gator Trace, which are single-family homes, and a sub-association of Gator Trace Master Property Owners Association. All single-family homeowners belong to both associations.


In order for the Board to keep accurate owner records for the association, we appreciate your help by completing the Owner Information page (click here). This information is gathered should we need to contact you in the event of an emergency.


There are five (5) Board Members – elected at our annual meeting held in March or April of each year.  The Homes of Gator Trace board members are:

John Engel, President
Ed Cox, Vice-President
John Agate, Treasurer – please direct single-family home estoppel requests to John by clicking here.
John McPeak, Secretary
Kari Reinke, Board Member at Large

The board meets periodically as needed throughout the year. Meeting notices are provided below.

The annual fee for 2020 is $50; it is billed once a year in the spring.  The Homeowners sub-association does not own any property and does not maintain reserves. However, the Board aims to keep about $8,000 on hand for any potential emergency cleanup costs.


The association is governed by our filed HOA documents as well as the Architectural Guide Rules & Regulations. It is important as a homeowner that you are aware of how this pertains to your property. The Architectural Guide applies to all homeowners and is designed not to be a policing effort…rather the overall goal is to help maintain our neighborhood as a great place to live.

Basically, before you begin any exterior work, if you are considering modifying or replacing anything on the exterior of your home – paint, shutters, roof, landscape, windows, mailbox, lamp post, driveway, etc., you need to submit a request to the ARC Committee for consideration. The Application for Project Review form is in the Current Documents section below, along with the ARC Guide. If you are planning exterior work in the near future, please download both; you may contact one of the Board members listed on the bottom of the form to discuss any exterior plans that you are considering.


A mix of people regularly use our roads – walkers, bike riders, children, golf carts, etc. So please be mindful – obey speed limit signs posted throughout the community, and come to a complete stop where indicated.


Fort Pierce Utilities (FPUA) handles this and billing appears on your water/electric bill. Containers are provided for each of these services. Garbage pick-up is Tuesday and Friday; Recycling pick-up is Tuesday; and Yard Waste is picked-up on Friday. If a holiday falls on any of these days, pick-up is not until the next regularly scheduled day. Click here for recycling dos and don’ts.


Under the current ARC Criteria, rentals are allowed only with prior permission of the Board of Directors.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact any one of the Board members. Thank you – and welcome to the neighborhood!


2020 Note: meetings will resume once COVID-19 concerns have subsided and authorities deem group meetings are safe. We will publish the dates here once that occurs.
