The Southwest Access (back gate) will be fully converted to RFID on March 1, 2017. Once converted, key cards will no longer function and access will be limited solely to valid RFID tags.

Back gate keys must be turned in after March 1 to the Association Office or main Gate.

Required Documentation

One of the initiatives of the Lakes and Dams Committee (LDC) is to understand better how stormwater, from all its sources, affects our Lakes. The Committee will be conducting topographic surveys of all of the ditches and inlets tributary to Wildwood and Tanglewood over the next 12 months.

If you see teams of 2 or 3 people with bright green safety vests and clipboards walking along our ditches (starting Saturday, January 21st) - very likely they are members of the Lakes and Dams Committee conducting this survey. Please feel free to hail us and lend us your insights as to what is happening with the ditches and inlets in your vicinity.

The schedule as planned is the first Saturday of each month and then roughly every other weekend they'll be surveying.
