In the aftermath of Hurricane Ian and Tropical Storm Nicole, the Fishhawk Ranch CDD staff continues to complete all necessary repairs in the community. While we work through this process, please use caution when using the CDD’s trails, sidewalks, bridges, and other facilities or common areas, as damage or debris may be present. If you encounter damage on CDD property, please do not attempt to remove it or repair it yourself. Instead, contact CDD staff at (813) 657-6629 and we will take appropriate action.
The major damage to the CDD was the bridges along the trail system especially the one near Dorman Road. After an inspection by our engineer and three different contractors it was determined the Dorman Road bridge will need to be replaced and the two others along the Ternwood and Hawk Park trails will need extensive repairs. The Board approved proposals for this work at the November 30, 2022, Board meeting. The Board selected the contractor that was the most cost effective and had the shortest lead time. We understand this will create an inconvenience for residents, but these bridges are unsafe and must be repaired. They will remain closed until all repairs are completed. Work started in early December and the Dorman Road bridge will be completed by the end of February 2023. They will then start repairing the bridges for Ternwood and Hawk Park which will take 1-2 months.
We have three entry fountain pumps and the Park Square splash pad pump that are on backorder all damaged during the storm. Per the updated provided by the vendor on 1/25/23 it may be a few more weeks before they arrive and are installed.
The well was damaged at Park Square and needs to be replaced. We expect the vendor contracted with the CDD will start work on 1/27/23.
The Board approved a vendor to make various roof repairs to CDD facilities at the meeting on 1/25/23. This was the last outstanding project from the storms that need to be contracted for.
We ask that everyone please be patient with our team as they work diligently to get these repairs made. If you have any questions, please contact us directly.
