776 Wall Damage
The south wall was damaged by an automobile on Nov. 19, 2018. The
driver was at fault and charged with improper lane change. His car was
struck by a small service van which caused the car to go out of control and
hit our wall. Damages to the wall were extensive but repairable. There was
no visible damage to the adjacent Shanley property other than debris from the
wall. The Association has negotiated a tentative settlement with Safeco, the
insurance company, and is working with Permacast, the wall company. Repairs
will be scheduled after the insurance money is received.

Since our Overbrook Gardens Directory is an annual publication, any changes that occur after
printing are not available to our residents until the following year. Oftentimes, residents
change their phone service and forget to share the new number with us, so we continue to publish
an inaccurate number for them. In addition, as new folks move into our community, we have
not been able to share their information until the next directory is published.
A new feature of the web site is to collect changes that may occur during the year. Please
check your listing and contact the membership chairman,
if you need to make changes. Your updated information will be entered on the web site until
the new directory is published. Please be advised that the directory names are based on
Sarasota County owner information and may be shortened to fit our directory parameters.
Scoop that Poop
More pets seem to be inhabiting our closely populated area which increases the threat to the
cleanliness of our underground and channel waters. Pet owners need to realize that poop left
on yards and streets finds its way quickly to our boating waters, and eventually contaminates
underground water. Property owners expect those who walk pets in this area to be responsible
for their pets. This includes picking up their poop which can be done easily and safely by using
plastic bags and small implements. More information can be found
