Attention Please Read--Important message on Annual Meeting Packet Delivery Method!!!!
Notice to all eligible voters (as defined by Article 2 of the By-Laws) of the QCBFD.

As per last’s year's Annual Meeting we have voted to amend the By-Laws (Art. 3, Sect.6 and 12) to make the default method of delivery of Annual Meeting materials electronic (via email).
This will save money, paper, and time! The Annual Packet will go out via emails listed in the Directory. Yes, I know there are non-eligible voters' emails in the Directory, but they can receive the packet and attend the meeting (its public) they just can’t vote. 

If you would rather receive a paper Annual Meeting packet by regular USPS mail, you must notify the clerk by email at clerk@quonniecentral.org by August 28th (20 days before the Annual Meeting). Any questions, please contact me.


Thank you
Maud Bailey

Safety Reminders for Golf Carts:

Golf cart speed limit is 15 mph

 Golf carts are not permitted on West Beach Road, Seabreeze Avenue, or Sunset Drive as they are Town-owned roads.

 Pedestrians and cyclists have the right-of-way.


Please review garbage and recycling issues

As stated in the previous e-Blast from Community Property, we will not be using the new carts at present as the new garbage truck is waiting for parts that have been delayed due to supply chain issues. So continue to use your current containers until notified.  

Key Points:

  • All garbage must be bagged. 
  • Recycling items cannot be bagged . Each recyclable item must be placed in separately. Recyclables may be mixed and must be placed in recycling bins with contents visible; not in a bag or box.

Click here to read the attached memo carefully and follow these instructions.


Important Message from the Long Range Planning Committee  

Last summer the Long Range Planning Committee started a project to develop a Comprehensive Plan for our community. Many of you attended the “visioning” sessions we held and shared your comments and ideas. Since then, a sub-group of the Committee has been meeting weekly, conducting informational interviews with subject matter experts, community leaders, longtime residents, younger residents, and newcomers.

Recuse and Recycling Update - May 27, 2022

We will not be using the new carts until the hauler receives truck parts that have been delayed due to supply chain issues. Please continue using your current containers until notified.
