To Lee Sebesta and Dick Vanderlaan for their work with the County to get Pointe East repaired until such time as the County can come up with the funds to rebuild the street...
Hi Vantage Pointe Homeowners,
As you know, we have been forced to change the names for two of our streets in Vantage Pointe. The new regulations are very detailed, and we are just the first of many name changes to come in Highlands County.
I asked for suggestions from residents and received 45 names. I forwarded that list to the county and they eliminated all but 6. The Board voted on those 6, and selected Advantage Ave for Pointe East and Pointe Ave for Pointe West.
I spoke with Sharon at the County Engineering Department, and she told me those names have been accepted, but still need approval from the County Commissioners at a meeting. After that happens they will put up new street signs with the new and old names to allow us a year to transition.
Sharon also spoke with Eric Zwayer, at our request, and he has agreed to waive the fees to change address on your drivers license, as long as the license isn't due for renewal. She still has to clarify if that will be waived for a 6 month or a year renewal window. We will have more information on that later. The county will be sending out letters to all residents on those two streets after the names are approved, and you will need that letter to waive fees.
I apologize for the inconvenience this is causing residents, but the process is beyond our control.
If you mail your checks for VPHA fees, please make note that by the first of the year the new mailing address will be 1325 Advantage Avenue, Sebring FL 33872. We can use the Pointe East address for a few months, but need to transition everything to the new address before the year is up.
Thank you for your help in this process.

Thanks for volunteering your valuable services to our VP community...
VANTAGE POINTE ARCHITECTURAL
(more VP volunteers)
The Architectural Control Committee (ACC) was formed, not because they didn't have anything better to do but because they take pride in our VP community.
These Committee members certainly take no joy in being the 'bad guys' in enforcing the rules. In my humble opinion it's the worse job in here to have to inform their friends and neighbors that a correction needs to be made, often quite minor and occasionally major. Don't kill the messenger, they are just doing a service for you and the rest of us in attempting to have our homes maintained in an attractive manner and thereby maintaining our property values.
If you question the need for these rules, I suggest you take a ride in our neighboring communities and ask yourself if you would want to be neighbors to some of these homes. These rules have been in place for over 20 years and because of them and the results of keeping VP an attractive place to live, this is one of the more obvious reasons most of us have moved here.
