VERONA SIGN

LAST UPDATED 8/8/19

WELCOME TO VERONA

Hello, and welcome to our friendly neighborhood of VERONA.   We look forward to continuing to turn these new homes into a community in which we know each other by first names and assist each other when and if we can.  

The first residents of VERONA moved into their new homes just a few years ago, and we are growing each and every month. As new residents move in, we want them to get to know their neighbors.  Therefore, we host a “Meet & Greet” at least every 2-3 months.  Everyone has agreed that these get-togethers help everyone make a smoother transition into their new neighborhood.  Check the "Upcoming Events" section below for dates.
 
If you're looking for more information pertaining to VERONA, simply contact our Neighborhood Captain, James (Jim) Cisek at verona.solivita2017@gmail.com.  We truly want and welcome all your ideas and input.  Afterall, this is OUR site!  
 
For current events, last-minute news, and miscellaneous items, keep an eye on our community bulletin board located right at our mailbox kiosk!

ROUNDABOUTS - There are lots of roundabouts in Florida.  Watch this video to explain how to use them.  Main points:  (1) When you're IN the roundabout, you should not have to slow down for those outside; they should yield to you.  (2)  When you're OUTSIDE the roundabout, yield to those inside by WAITING (yes, even for a golf cart) until it's safe to enter.  (3) Stay off the center circle (truck apron) -- unless you're a huge truck, of course.  Stay safe!    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMV02ReN0lo
