Gate Entry for Residents
Rosedale is a gated community, with two 24/7 manned gatehouses at State Route 70 and 44th Avenue East. All residents, vendors and guests must successfully pass through a security gate to gain access to the neighborhood.
Rosedale homeowners and long-term renters (one year or longer) may obtain a barcode decal to mount on the left rear window of their vehicle. This barcode can be scanned automatically to let them drive through right lane of either security gate without the need to stop and identify themselves to the gate
Keys to the pedestrian gate at the Malachite entrance are available to homeowners at the RPM office with a $100 key deposit and completion of the Rosedale Homeowners Malachite Pedestrian Access Gate Key Request Form (click here for the form.)
Obtaining Your Vehicle Barcode
In order to obtain a barcode decal, new homeowners must provide a copy of their Warranty Deed to the gate attendant if it has not already been sent to Resource Property Management (RPM).
Residents who rent their property must supply a properly filled out and signed lease, preferably 30 days in advance, to RPM. To prevent unauthorized access, if a renter shows up at the gate with an unsigned lease, the property owner will be called to authorize access and be informed that a properly prepared lease must be supplied. If the property owner cannot be contacted, the person will be denied access.
Follow this process to obtain a barcode decal.
Barcodes will be issued by the gate attendant site supervisor at the SR 70 guest lane on Sunday, between 7:00 am and 3:00 p.m by appointment only.
You will need to make an appointment in advance by calling (941) 756-2777, after 4:00 p.m.
You must bring your completed barcode application with you or you will not be issued a barcode. click here for the fill-able form. You can also pick up a form at the SR 70 gatehouse in advance.
At your appointment, remain in your vehicle and a barcode will be affixed. New barcodes will not be activated until the following day.
If your license plate number has changed, you must notify the gate or the access committee to update the plate number in DwellingLive. The system will still recognize your car by the barcode.
There is no charge to residents for this barcode. Long-term renters may get a barcode at a cost of $10. All payments must be made in the form of check or money order made out to Rosedale Master Homeowners Association - cash or credit card will not be accepted.
If a Rosedale resident has a barcode on their vehicle from another community, it can be added to the Rosedale system. Then a paper pass would no longer need to be used to enter the residents’ gate, and the vehicle would no longer cause system alarms when it passes the barcode reader. To implement this, send a full description of the vehicle including make, model, color, year, plate number and barcode number to the Access Committee (click here).
