Vehicle Barcodes Must Be Replaced

This datasheet is provided in Adobe PDF format Barcode Replacement Form

The community will be installing new barcode readers at all of the gates in October and the new units will go live on October 16, 2017.  The new readers will NOT read the old bar codes and all of your vehicles must have a new bar code installed to be able to enter the gate houses in the resident’s lane.

The barcode units that we are using or all over 10 years old with some 17 years old.  We are having a difficult time obtaining parts to keep them running which has led to the gates being down for long periods of time.  Even when we do find parts they have no warranty and are very expensive.  The only thing holding us back from replacing them earlier was the fact we had to change all bar code readers at the same time and had to replace every barcode on every vehicle.

To obtain a new bar code you need to fill out the enclosed form and turn it into any gate house or Email the form to barcode@chevalwest.com.  You can also download a blank form from www.chevalwest.com

On the form, you will select one of two options to obtain your barcode.  The first option is to have the new bar code installed on your car before the new readers are installed.  This means you will have TWO bar codes on your vehicle and when you remove the old barcode the new barcode will be above or beside where the old one was.  For some people, this gap of where the old barcode was will be very distracting so you need to consider that before selecting this option.

The second option is to show up the weekend before the new units go live and we will have people available to remove the old bar code and replace it with the new barcode in the exact same spot.  You must have already turned in your barcode request sheet enclosed with this mailing by October 13th.  If you show up with the form, we will accept it but it will still need to be processed before we can issue you a barcode so you will have to come back at a later date to get your new barcode.

The barcode exchange will be done on Saturday, October 14th and Sunday, October 15th from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm.  The location will be either in the east most TPC parking lot or on Terrain de Golf Drive east of the TPC parking lot.  This option will be a direct replacement of your existing barcode so the position of the new barcode will be where the old one was.

The new barcodes are black on black so they should blend in a vehicle window that has been tinted very well.  It will also help us identify if you are trying to access the gates with the old barcode instead of the new one.

We understand this is not a task that anyone wishes to go through but we have no other options to be able to provide the residents with a reliable gate entry system without doing this.

October 16, 2017 – New Barcode Readers Go Live
October 14-15, 2017 9:00 am – 5:00 pm – Exchange old barcodes near TPC Golf Course

Barcode Not Working?

Two resolutions were proposed and unanimously approved by residents which may be the cause of your barcode not working. The first was to allow the deactivation of all barcodes associated to an address which has not paid their annual homeowner association dues. These dues are currently $130.00 a year and are due by January 1st of EACH year. If a resident does not pay this homeowner association fee then EVERY barcode assigned to that address will be deactivated starting in April. Once the full amount due (including late fees and if necessary attorney fees) then new bar codes can be issued for a $15 fee per vehicle.

The second resolution that was passed was for any unpaid fine that a homeowner may have. If a homeowner has not paid a fine then the same deactivation policy and new bar code fee will apply as stated above.

If your bar code is not working then you should call Shelly Bramm from Greenacre Properties at 813-936-4160 or Email her at sbramm@greenacre.com to make sure you don't have an outstanding fine or past due homeowner association dues.

New Trash & Recycle Days

Effective immediately the big gray and blue trash/recycle cans are to be used in Cheval West. Since these cans are picked up by an automated system instead of a person walking beside the truck, you must put ALL trash inside the container. If you leave boxes, items or other trash cans on the curb; they will not be picked up. The automated pick up system is only designed to pick up the large gray and blue containers.

You are also required to keep a minimum of three feet between the container and any other object. Again failure to do that may result in your receptacle not being picked up. Here are the new pick up dates:

Trash pickup (gray container)
Recycle pickup (blue container)

Trash pickup (gray container)
Yard waste

If you are having any service issues please call:
Republic Services 813-265-0292
Hillsborough County Public Utilities Department 813-272-5680
