A Homeowner Association may provide all notices to the members electronically. By incorporating this provision in the code, Thurston Groves would save on printing and mailing costs by using this notice method. This would also allow us to deliver important announcements or emergency information in a timely, more uniform manner. We recently sent all Thurston Groves Homeowners a Permission Form. If you have returned it, Thank You!

In May of 2016, the board expressed an interest in waiving the by-laws against garage sales. A poll was conducted and majority of the residents responding to the poll voted in favor of having a neighborhood garage sale. TG's first garage sale was held on October 15th from 9am - 1pm. It was a huge success. Hundreds of shoppers came out to buy tools, electronics, clothes, furniture, jewelry and other valuable items that were available for sale. The board has agreed to hold garage sales every 18 months alternating in the spring and fall. The next yard sale will be held in the spring of 2018.
Many residents have complained over the years about traffic speeds, especially along TG Blvd. We have asked the City for speed bumps, lower speed limits, more traffic enforcement for speeding. Unlike the county, speed bumps are not allowed in the City of Seminole. So far our only option right now is to have the deputies patrol more and citations for speeding. The turn around in the first several homes in Thurston Groves has been a huge problem and safety concerned for children playing nearby.
