Re-convened 2022 Evergreen Owners Annual Meeting Summary and Board of Directors Election

On April 28, 2022, at 6 PM, the re-convened Evergreen Property Owners Annual Meeting was called to order.  David Regan gave the President’s Report, which covered the following topics:

  1. Water update – Although funding was approved for the Evergreen/Windstone water project in late 2021, Martin County elected to apply these funds to several other projects that were near completion, but in need of additional funds. The new planning date for the completion of the Evergreen/Windstone water project is 1H 2023.
  2. Golf cart accident – There was a tragic golf cart accident at the Floridian this week that resulted in a 34-year-old man being killed after the cart hit a raised manhole cover. The person who was killed was hanging onto the back of the cart and not seated.  Please – all golf cart owners within Evergreen ensure that your carts are being operated by someone at least 16 years old (now part of the Evergreen Covenants) and that all persons remain properly seated while the cart is being driven.
  3. Murphy Road bridge update – Completion is expected in late August – mid-September 2022.
  4. Debris at old tennis court (golf club) – Still no progress getting this cleaned up, despite promises from the Crane Watch Club to begin the effort. Members of the new Board will schedule a meeting with the Club soon, and this concern will be an agenda item.
  5. Dogs – There have been several recent reports of unleashed dogs chasing and being aggressive to bike riders and walkers on the road. Please ensure that your dogs are LEASHED when they’re in your yard with you.  Even if you’re right there with your dog, it’s just normal canine behavior to run after people or other animals and a bad situation can quickly develop.  Our bike riders and walkers deserve to feel safe when they’re enjoying our neighborhood.
  6. Speeding – The speed limit in Evergreen is 25 MPH. There have been reports of vehicles traveling much faster, and speeding is dangerous to bike riders and walkers.  School will be out soon and activity on our roads will increase during the summer months.  Please keep your speed down, be courteous, and safely share the roads.
  7. Directory Consent Forms – If you haven’t completed your form yet, please complete it and drop it off at the guardhouse. Alternatively, you can email with your completed form.

The ballots for a seat on the Evergreen Property Owners Association Board of Directors were opened and tallied, and the results of the election were announced:  Mr. Bruce Neumann was elected.  The Board thanks Mr. Bill Cofrances for his candidacy and interest in serving our community.

Following the conclusion of the re-convened annual meeting, the Board held an organizational meeting to elect officers.  The new Evergreen Property Owners Association Board of Directors is as follows:

      • Debi Hoefer, President
      • John Nelson, Vice President
      • Dawn Owen, Treasurer
      • Bruce Neumann, Secretary
      • Bob Langevin, Director

Contact information for the Board of Directors can be found on the Evergreen website:

Respectfully submitted,

Debi Hoefer,
President, Evergreen Property Owners Association Board of Directors

Area Burglaries

Over the weekend three communities in Palm City reported burglaries: Isleworth, Hammock Creek, and Orchid Bay.

If you see any suspicious activity please report it to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office.

Be vigilant!


Power has not yet been restored to the guardhouse/front gate area.  FPL replaced the meter today but there is a lot of underlying damage to the housing and wiring.  We have an electrical company actively working on the problem, but due to the extent of the damage and work necessary, we do not expect power to be restored for 3-4 days.

We have rented a large generator which should be in place on Wednesday and provide enough power to temporarily operate the guardhouse and the bar code reader/entry and exit gates.

Guardhouse/Front Gate Power Outage

The electric meter that provides power to the guardhouse and the front gate area has failed.  FPL has been called to replace it on an emergency basis.  The guardhouse is manned and the gates will remain open until the meter has been replaced.  FPL has not given us an ETA for the service completion at this time, but we’ll keep you updated.
