FAQ

  • chevron_rightDoes Capron Ridge have video surveillance?
    Yes, there are cameras at the clubhouse, which monitor the pool area, gym, interior of the clubhouse, front of the clubhouse, Kerry Park (from the clubhouse), and the front gate area. These are designed to provide security and safety for our neighbors. Signs are installed on the pool gates, clubhouse, Kerry Park, and the gatehouse. There are no cameras installed in private areas such as the interior of the bathrooms. These cameras and recordings are only used for issues related to safety and security, and are not actively monitored, only referenced afterwards if there is an issue where video evidence can provide additional information. No video is taken of residential areas, only public areas, and all cameras are publicly mounted. Areas are marked with signs that indicate surveillance is being performed for their protection in these areas. 
  • chevron_rightHow Do I Request An Item Be added To an HOA Board Meeting Agenda?
    Go to https://www.capronridgehoa.com and select the "Contact us" menu item and fill out the form at the bottom of the page. Type your request in the "How Can We Help You" box. If this is an initial question, please select your area HOA representative. You should have worked with your area HOA representative prior to sending this to the entire board to insure there has been time to discuss any issues. Submitting an item does not guarantee that it will be a topic in the next board meeting due to many factors.
  • chevron_rightIs Capron Ridge allowed to mow/trim the strip of land around the retention ponds by the Conservation areas?
    No, unfortunately. St. Johns River Management District has told us that this is not allowed anymore since it impacts the retention pond by adding additional debris, and nitrogen into the pond during this process.
  • chevron_rightIs soliciting permitted in Capron Ridge?
    No, signs at the front of our neighborhood indicate that soliciting is not permitted.
  • chevron_rightMay I contact our Capron Ridge HOA Attorney for questions?
    No, according to the Capron Ridge HOA attorney, that would be a conflict of interest since the attorney represents the Capron Ridge HOA and not an individual homeowner or group of homeowners. If there are legal questions, the homeowner will need to seek outside legal counsel to avoid a conflict of interest. The board votes on whether to engage the Capron Ridge HOA attorney for any legal neighborhood issues, and that is coordinated through the Board President to insure efficiency due to the expense.
  • chevron_rightMay I cut Pepper trees and Noxious weeds behind my house? (New)
    Yes, with proper approvals.
    Pepper Trees and noxious weeds (vines, etc.) are a major issue for Capron Ridge and homeowners. There are three types of common areas in Capron Ridge: HOA owned, HOA owned but governed by St. Johns River Management (conservation areas), and EEL (Environmentally Endangered Lands) called the Scrubjay preserve. All are managed with different processes. We have started a program to remove noxious weeds in the common areas, which will be a multi-year program. For homeowners, options include;
     
    Trimming the weeds where they enter or hang over your property, there are no restrictions on this.
    Paying for or removing yourself, weeds behind your property, you need HOA and possibly St. Johns River Mgt. approvals (if it is a conservation area).
    Waiting for HOA funding to become available for removal, this will take several years before funding is potentially available.
     
    Please see the Landscaping section within the Information Center for the lastest processes.
  • chevron_rightMay I drain my pool directly into the retention ponds?
    NO!
    Draining pool water directly into the retention ponds is a fining offense from Brevard County and the Capron Ridge HOA. We receive a significant discount on land property taxes for following this rule, and we would not want to raise assessments due to violations. The county prohibits draining pool water directly into the retention ponds. The chemicals and water make up is dangerous to the fish and the health of the pond.
     
    Information from the County Health services on this subject:
    Environmental Health Services with the Dept. of Health has specific information about pools and can be reached at 321-633-2100.  As a stormwater specialist, I can tell you that discharging directly into any stormwater pond, swale (ditch), or pipe (grate, curb inlet, etc.) is not allowed.  The chemicals must dissipate before water enters into the stormwater system.  Most residents allow this to happen either by placing a hose of the discharging pool water across the grass at least 20’ from the pond’s edge or into a 5 gallon bucket, each with water slowly flowing.  The County ordinance states all waters entering the stormwater system must be of equal or better water quality than the receiving water body, and chlorine only takes a few minutes in the atmosphere to dissipate.  Soil bonds with many other chemicals in pools, so the end result is clean water flowing across the grass or through the soil into the pond.  An important note is to also ensure no erosion is occurring during this process (that’s why the velocity needs to be slow).

  • chevron_rightWhere should yard debris be placed for pickup?
    All yard debris should be put near the street on the homeowners property. Otherwise, it cannot be picked up by Waste Management. And, no debris should be placed on the storm drains. If Waste Management uses their claw, they can damage the storm sewer top. Then, we all pay anywhere from $10,000 to $25,000 to repair the top of the drain. There are estimates I received from cement vendors about repairs they have made due to this issue. So, please do not put anything on the storm drains, and only on your property, or immediately adjacent in the street.
     
    If the volume is small, Waste Management can put it in their truck manually. If the debris is large, please call the Waste Management company from the Brevard County website. They will send out the larger truck with the claw to remove this yard waste
