Join Overbrook Gardens Association

Our Association membership is voluntary, and served by many member-volunteers.  We are proud to continue to offer: a private boat ramp, night time security patrol, safe school bus stops, eight well maintained Association properties, a membership directory--with maps, a web site, picnics, and other benefits for members at a fee of only $50 per year. 

Did you know the Overbrook Community owns eight properties around the neighborhood?
                    1. The SR-776 entry wall properties (2) including the wall itself.
                    2. Lot #12 at the South East corner of Forked Creek, next to the SR-776 bridge.
                    3. The bus stop at the corner of Forked Creek & Overbrook Rd.
                    4. The bus stop at Neptune Dr. & Overbrook Rd.
                    5. The lake lot between Overbrook Rd. and the lake.
                    6. The Fairview Circle lot.
                    7. The boat ramp and adjoining lot.


We don’t pay taxes on these properties, but your Association dues pay for maintenance costs such as mowing, plantings, mulch, painting, work crew supplies, tree trimming and/or removal, SR 776 wall maintenance, etc.  Your dues pay for water and electricity on some of these properties.   We are responsible for several hundred feet of Mangrove trees that protect our shorelines. Occasional trimming of the Mangroves is required by a licensed arborist. Your dues pay for this.

Your paid dues allow access to the boat ramp after you attain a key for the ramp lock.

Your dues pay for the web site hosting service, postage costs, printing and copy costs, etc.

Your Association sponsors an annual spring picnic, paying for park pavilion rent, meat, beverages, etc.  There’s a group of volunteers that arrange everything.

The annual Christmas party is available to everyone who wishes to attend.

We have a “Welcome Wagon” committee that makes-up welcome baskets full of helpful information for our new residents.  Basket supplies are paid for by the Association.

Payment of dues also provides funds to create a directory of recorded residents that is updated annually.  It is distributed to members in the Spring. 

We have community meetings, one in November and a business meeting in February.  These are normally held at the New Hope Baptist Church.

We have one of the best voluntary Citizen's Patrol organization in Sarasota County according to the Sheriff’s Dept.

The current budget is available on the Community Affairs page here.
