Homeowners and guests should be aware of the speed limits and the stop signs that are placed around the community are there for your protection. These signs are posted for the safety of ALL Southern Dunes Residents and guests!   


There are a number of drivers, residents, visitors and vendors alike intentionally break the law by not coming to full stop, or even slowing down at stop signs.  The Florida statute regulating stop signs states, "every driver of a vehicle approaching a stop intersection indicated by a stop sign shall stop at a clearly marked stop line, but if none, before entering the crosswalk."

Nowhere does it state that slowing down at a stop sign is sufficient.  Not coming to a full stop is illegal.  This practice endangers pedestrians and other drivers I have seen many "brake checks" as people drive into the intersection after rolling through a stop sign and seeing a police car sitting nearby. 
All vehicles shall maintain a speed of 20 mph max while on community roads. Southern Dunes has signed a contract with the Haines City Police where they will patrolling our private roads and issuing tickets to those who are found speeding as well as not stopping at STOP signs.

Home fire safety is always a priority, and the following are a few tips to help keep your home and family safe. If you have any household tips you would like to share, we'd love to hear from you!

Home Fire Safety Checklist:  

  • Check the batteries in your smoke detectors often. A good time to change the battery is when you change your clocks for Daylight Savings time! 

  • Test your Smoke Detectors and replace any that are ten years or older. 

  • Position detectors per code, place one detector per living level and near the areas where you and your family sleep. 

  • Keep detectors away from heating and cooling ducts, at least six inches from where walls and ceilings meet.  

  • Keep fire extinguishers handy. Make sure there's at least one on each floor especially, near the kitchen, garage and laundry room.  

  • Check the wiring. Have a professional electrician check for faulty wiring, especially if you own an older home.  

  • Check your dryer hose => lint build-up can cause overheating. Clean the hose and dryer annually.  

  • Talk with family and make sure everyone knows what to do in case of a fire breaks out.

  • Create a fire safety plan. This should include a designated meeting place outside of the home. This will insure everyone is present and no one will be running back into the burning home or you can make the first Fire responder aware and tell them that this person or persons is missing and where they might be located.
