 A MESSAGE FROM THE ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITTEE

GHWA ArticlesPeter Varga - EC Committee Chairman GHWA

The EC Committee and Board Directors would like to thank the community of Gulf Harbor Woodlands for the recent efforts made by residents in the trimming of palm trees to owner lots. These efforts have made a big difference in how our neighborhood looks and will help reduce debris in the event of a storm or high winds.

As a gentle reminder, a number of homes in the community do not have visible house numbers from the road and/or numbers on the mailboxes. Please consider when time is critical and emergency response units are trying to locate your address, seconds can mean the difference between life and death. It is proactive and in your best interest to have your residence clearly marked.

The ideal location:

House

The number should be posted so that it is visible from both directions of travel.

Trees, shrubs or other decorations should not block visibility from the road.

Numbers - minimum Height of 3 high, placed at or near the front door within an effective range of the porch light and above eye level.

Numbers placed above garage doors are difficult to locate and should be avoided.

Contrasting colors to the house paint should be used.

Curb markings are nice, but are hard to see from a vehicle or at night.

At best any house numbers are better then none!

Mailbox

Do not use your mailbox as the only means of identification for your residence.

If your mailbox is not in front of your house or near your driveway, emergency responders cannot locate you if you do not have your house number on your house or on a post or sign in your yard.

Remember to mark your mailbox on both sides.

Numbers on the mailbox door may be great for your mail carrier, however, ineffective for emergency vehicles responding from either direction.
