Bloomingdale HOA Seeks New Board Members
Do you care about our Bloomingdale community and want to take an active role in its future? Then, the Bloomingdale Homeowners Association (BHA) wants you to become part of “Team Bloomingdale.”
The Board consists of 12 directors, and there are three director and three alternate director positions available. Meetings are on the second Tuesday of each month at the Bloomingdale Community Office at 6:30 p.m.
Board members serve the community in a variety of ways, including working on committees that oversee the BHA’s programs and services. Some committees require more effort than others, but all board members find ways to contribute according to their talents and desires.
The BHA encourages all interested residents to attend a few board meetings to see the Association at work, and to determine if joining the board is a good fit.
Remember, current board members are residents like you whose number one goal is to help the residents of the community.
Arrests made in Sandy Creek Vehicle Break-ins, Residents Praised
The suspects involved in the recent Sandy Creek-area vehicle burglaries, and Bloomingdale Little League attempted burglary that occurred on Wednesday, June 25 have been arrested. According to Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office Master Deputy Curtis Warren at the Bloomingdale Area Community Council Meeting on Thursday, July 24, four teenagers were apprehended and charged with 10 counts of vehicle burglary, one count of armed vehicle burglary (a loaded weapon was stolen), and one count of attempted burglary of a structure.
Residents of the Bloomingdale community played an important part in the positive outcome of this case. Law enforcement officials received security camera footage from several Sandy Creek homeowners. In addition, the Bloomingdale Homeowners Association posted a resident-provided video still of one of the suspects “in the act” on the Association’s Facebook page and community Website.
