New Residents

Welcome to Kensington Park! Here is some useful information to help you as you move into your new home.

Overall Community Information
  • As an owner, you are now a part of the Kensington Park Master Association (KPMA). Prior to your closing, you were provided with all of our governing documents, which are also located on this website.
  • KPMA sends out periodic and important community information via email and it is encouraged that every member of your household receives these emails. To subscribe to the emails, please send an email to resident@newellpropertymanagement.com with your name, Kensington address, and household email address(es).
  • Newell Property Management is the KPMA property manager. You can contact them by calling 239.514.1199 or by sending an email to resident@newellpropertymanagement.com.  Please contact them directly if you have any questions and/or need any information.
  • Most homes and condos are also part of an individual Homeowner Association (HOA). Each HOA has their own rules that need to be followed in conjunction with KPMA’s rules and regulations.  If you are not sure who your HOA manager is, please contact Newell for more information.
  • KPMA is governed by a Board of Directors. The Board meets monthly and residents are permitted to attend the meetings.  All Board meetings are noticed at the front gate.
  • Kensington is a small community and residents should be respectful to one another, as well as to the various vendors that service the community. If you encounter an issue that requires immediate attention, please contact Newell and/or the gate house.  If you have a non-urgent question or comment for the Board, please send an email to Newell and request that the email gets forwarded to the Board.
Access & Patrol
  • KPMA engages Statewide to patrol the community and enforce the policies and procedures outlined in the Access & Patrol Manual. Statewide officers are posted at the front gate (24 hours / 7 days a week), at the back gate (when operational), and in a rover vehicle that patrols the community.  It is expected that all residents, tenants, guests, and vendors comply with the Access & Patrol Manual that is being enforced by Statewide.
  • There are two ways to enter Kensington Park (KP). One is by having a barcode attached to the rear side window of a vehicle and two is by providing access by entering a guest and/or vendor into dwellingLive, our visitor management system.  For more information on dwellingLive and to request your login credentials, please send an email to resident@newellpropertymanagement.com.
  • The front gate is accessible 24 hours / 7 days a week.
  • The back gate is accessible to vehicles with a barcode from 7am to 11pm. Vehicles without a barcode can access the gate from 7am to 5pm Monday through Saturday, excluding holidays.  All construction vehicles and commercial vendors must enter and exit through the Livingston Road/Eatonwood Road exit.
  • Please follow all posted speed limit signs, which is 25mph on straightaways and 15mph on curves.
Parking Policies and Vehicle Passes
  • Vehicles with a barcode must be parked in a garage overnight. The only exceptions are: Residents in Wellington I and Wellington II may park overnight in the designated communal parking spaces and residents in Hamlet may park a vehicle in their driveway overnight. 
  • If a vehicle with a barcode needs to be temporarily parked in the driveway overnight, you may do so by obtaining a dash pass. These passes are valid for up to 30 days and are only issued on a temporary basis if parking in a garage is not available (i.e. if the garage door is broken or construction is temporarily restricting access into the garage).
  • Vehicles without a barcode (i.e. guests) may temporarily park in driveways overnight by obtaining a dash pass.
  • All vehicles are prohibited from parking on curves, which are designated by two yellow lines.
  • Overnight street parking is prohibited.
  • Statewide monitors all vehicles that enter into Kensington Park and if a vehicle is in violation of any rule, policy, or procedure, a ticket and/or fine will be issued to the home owner. Owners are responsible for any tickets and/or fines guests, vendors, and/or tenants incur.
Home Modifications and Landscape Changes
  • KPMA requires prior approval if an owner wants to make any exterior modifications to a home. These modifications include, but are not limited to, house painting, roof replacements, lanai replacements, exterior lighting, hurricane shutter/window installation, generator installation, solar panel installation, landscape changes, and tree removal. 
  • Interior modifications do not require KPMA approval; however, any temporary outside structures (such as dumpsters, port-a-potties, temporary fencing, etc.) do require KPMA approval.
  • To obtain approval, please submit an ARB Modification Request Form, which is located on our website.
Trash and Recycling Bins
  • Trash (green bin) is collected on Wednesday’s and Saturday’s. Recycling (yellow top bin) is collected on Wednesday’s. 
  • Trash and recycling bins must be stored in garages and are not allowed to be placed by the curb prior to 6:00pm the day prior to scheduled pick up. Bins must be put away as soon as possible, but no later than 10:00pm on the day of pick up.
Exterior Home Owner Responsibilities
  • All single-family and estate home owners are responsible for maintaining the exterior appearance of their dwelling and property.
  • Roofs and driveways must be kept clean and free of algae, mildew, dirt, and debris.
