Beautification work 2017
Wow! After several days of pre Project Day work, clean up at 4 sites of hurricane debris, was cut and cleared. AND THE BIG project for 2017 was the clean up and land /road refurbishing following the constructions of the front guard casita, wall, and road. Lovely landscaping, new signage, lighting and paint freshening was added to complete an overall welcoming and more secure front entrance for the Caracol. It is exciting how many people have worked together over the last 3 years to come to fruition. Monies from annual maintenance dues as well as personal donations supported the project. As you wander the Caracol, also take notice to our beach maintenance- thanks to the Lewis's, a new Pila garden, thanks to the Busse's and Sutton's, and 2 new street signs -thanks Thonda Oliver and Tod Klein!

The camaraderie and resourcefulness of our neighbors, friends and workers all pulling together make the Caracol a great place to call home. At the same time safety has increased and Realtors indicate there is increased interest in showing homes, due to our improvements. If you have an improvement idea, contact a Board member, come to meetings to share your idea, and attend social functions. Your ideas are important and can be the next great development!
