Scenes from the Rotonda West area

Welcome to Rotonda West (map) – a peaceful, planned community situated near the beautiful Gulf of Mexico in southwest Florida. It is located mid-way between Sarasota and Fort Myers.

The community contains 8,000 home sites with over 5,000 homes completed and is experiencing rapid growth. Residents are predominantly full-time homeowners and their families, as well as tenants and those who winter in the community.

There are six golf courses operated by Rotonda Golf and Country Club. Thirty miles of picturesque canals, lakes and ponds wind through the community and offer fishing and boating opportunities for its residents.

Many exotic and beautiful birds and other wildlife call Rotonda West their home. Nearby recreation facilities, beaches, theaters, sporting events, and fine restaurants are available for all.

Clubs, activities, and many volunteer opportunities abound for those who wish to become involved.

Going "Green" with West Ways!

In line with a modern-day trend by many organizations, the Rotonda West Association has adopted its Electronic Communications Program designed to minimize printing and mailing costs for issues of West Ways and other Association documents.

Under the ECOM Program, all owners have the opportunity to read the newsletter on-line and in full color. All issues are posted on the West Ways Newsletter link on the right under thr menu. Eventually, the Association mailing list will be culled and only those owners who have not opted for the ECOM program will continue to receive printed copies of West Ways and other RWA documents.

So far, more than 1,000 members have chosen to read the newsletter on line, as well as receive billings such as the annual assessment and other documents via email.

Promotion of ECOM participation began on these pages a year ago.

If you have an email account and prefer to view issues on-line, send an email to Manager Jay Lyons at Include your name, property address and account number and request participation in the ECOM Program. The ECOM program could eventually save the Association thousands of dollars in printing and postage costs. Sign up now!
