silver meadows southAbout Our Neighborhood
Located on the east and slightly north side of the beautiful and historic town of Ocala, Florida, Silver Meadows South is one of three sections of the Silver Meadows development, which was founded in the 1990’s. Home lots range from .75 to just over an acre, with generous green spaces scattered throughout.
Bordered by Highway 326 on the southeast and Baseline Rd./NE 53rd Ave. on the west, our development is surrounded by beautiful conservation areas and parks, including the Silver Springs Forest Conservation Area and the Indian Lake State Forest. We are less than a mile from the historic Silver Springs State Park.
“What kind of fencing is allowed in Silver Meadows?”
Our C&Rs allow for wooden fences not to exceed six (6) feet in height, or 3 or 4 board black, white or panel treated board fence with post and rails not to exceed five (5) feet in height. No fence is allowed in front of the house, unless you use the 3/4 board version. We are currently meeting to consider revisions to update our C&Rs to allow vinyl fencing, and we do have many properties within our community with this material.
“Can we have a sign in our front yard?”
No signs except one small real estate sign if your property is for sale or for lease.
“Do I need a special mailbox?”
All mailboxes and newspaper receptacles must be enclosed in a wooden, brick, split block or stucco facade to conform to the design and architecture of our subdivision.
“How much are HOA dues?”
We send out invoices in the spring every year and they are $400 per year.
“We’re building a home on a lot in Silver Meadows. What do we need to know?”
We have an Architectural Review Committee that is available to help you and your builder understand and plan within our Covenants & Restrictions.
“What amenities are available for HOA members?”
We have beautiful paved streets that are ideal for walking, jogging or bicycling. We also share two “Recreation Centers” with Silver Meadows Central and Silver Meadows North (one is on the western border of our development) that both have basketball, tennis and racquetball courts, as well as grassy areas and restrooms.
“How do I get into the gates of the development?”
Our gates are closed 24/7. They are operated three different ways: 1) By remote clicker, 2) by a personal 4-digit code, or by contacting the homeowner via the call box. See below…
A gate remote (clicker) issued by the HOA. These are available through our Treasurer for $25 each via a request form on the Members Only section of this website. This is the most reliable method of entry, as it does not require any cellular service to the gate. Remote Clickers work on all three entrances: South, Central and North.
Utilize the Call Box entry system. The person at the gate may scroll down the directory using the A and Z keys to locate the resident’s name. When the name is located, they press the CALL on the keypad and the system will call the resident’s pre-programmed telephone number for permission to enter.
Each household has a personal 4-digit code assigned to them that can be entered into the keypad on the gate entry system.
Codes are active from 7AM to 7PM, 7 days a week. These codes will not work during the evening and overnight hours. This was done to make our community more secure during the overnight hours, and for further protection if the code is compromised by inadvertent sharing.
Personal Access Codes ONLY WORK ON SOUTH GATES.
