San Carlos Estates Annual Christmas Golf Cart Parade!!!
This event will begin Saturday, December 23, 2023 around 5:45 PM. This is an excellent way to meet many of your neighbors and celebrate with them. Residents are encouraged to show up early for social meet and greet. The Parade will start at the Entrance Median on Strike Lane and proceed to the end of Strike Lane and back to the Median. Dress up your golf cart in Christmas gear. We look forward to seeing you there.
Great News!!! Work in the District has begun!!! The canals are being cleaned out and you may notice unfamiliar faces in your backyard, especially those living on Strike Lane who have the canal running behind your homes. The cleaning crew will have large equipment that must travel behind those homes on the south side of Strike Lane. Some residents do have personal belongings in the Right of Way such as children's toys, golf set-ups. We are asking for your assistance to kindly remove your items to allow for easy access to the canal, by the cleaning crew and their equipment. This work will continue to the perimeter roads. We are asking for the same cooperation from those residents whose homes are adjacent to Tuck, Moriah and Bonita Bill.
Thank you for your cooperation.

The gate has been replaced and will be operational effective 02/13/2022 to provide people with adequate notice so they can respond appropriately. Many non-residents have become accustomed to the gate being open creating traffic jams at the site and increased traffic on our roadways. The decision was made to allow them time to adjust their behaviors to avoid any potential damage to the new gate or traffic issues at the location.
For those with remotes, the remotes will continue to operate the new gate. It has been found that many remotes that have been tested needed new batteries. It is highly recommended that you put a new battery for any existing remote you have. Or if you experience an issue with your remote, to replace the battery. Otherwise there have been no other issues with the existing remotes operating the gate.
There are also signs in the community advising residents and non-residents alike on the status of the gate.

The San Carlos Estates Water Control District has an amazing team-spirited panel. Led by our Chairman of the Board, Mr. James Bradford, this team has worked tirelessly on behalf of the residents of San Carlos Estates, investing countless hours working with the City of Bonita Springs to help our community to be allocated with financial assistance on neighboring communities through a mitigation strategy plan on current and future resolutions to help with our financial needs. This panel has accomplished much in making sure this community survived Hurricane Ian with minimal damages and with a speedy recovery.
This District now has a new website that is compliant with Chapter 298 District rules and regulations. Though many were involved in the making of the website, Supervisor John Cellucci initiated and guided this accomplishment from start to finish. Board members are always working without recognition for the good of this community. They contribute several hours of dedication to accomplish the much-needed services for our community, sometimes averaging 20-30 plus hours a week. The compensation for this labor of love for this community pays $50.00 a month. Each year a term expires for a Board Member. Therefore, an opportunity exists for the public to express interest and request consideration for one of those positions. If you are interested in becoming a Board Member, please be willing to work hard and contact Manager Audrey Medeiros @ Manager-AMedeiros@scewcd.org or via phone 239-495-4966. Your name will be added to the list of potential nominees. It would be very helpful to have a short biography or statement of intent/desire to add to the website so everyone can get to know you.
