All guests of residents are required to have photo identification for access to the SNA. When approaching the gate, guests must be prepared to give their host resident's name and address, their own name, and a proper photo ID to gain access. Realtors and their clients will only be granted access at the request of a resident or selling agent on Harbour Island. Selling agents must fill out and return a Realtor Authorization Form, signed by the owner they represent, to be able to grant access to others as part of a sales process.
Contractors must present a photo ID, and provide a resident name and address for the home where they will be working. Contractor Hours are 7 AM - 6 PM Monday through Friday, and 8 AM - 3 PM only on Saturday. Contractors are not permitted into the South Neighborhood Association on Sundays or designated holidays. Please note that access for contractors is through the East Gate only!
For further information about providing services behind the gates, we suggest that you review the HICSA Residential Contractors Operations Policy, Contractor Rules and Procedures or the Contractor Information Sheet summary for further information.
Pedestrian gate keys are available in the SNA Office 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Monday through Friday. The cost is $125.00 of which $100.00 will be refunded upon the return of the key. There is a limit of only two keys per address.
Residents may obtain Bar Codes for their vehicles that will enable them access through the resident's lane. Once residents have been approved by the individual neighborhood associations (where applicable), and have closed on their homes or began their leases, have completed an SNA Data Form, turned in their SNA application along with their payment, they need to contact Richard Sloggett at (813) 221.3300 Ext 203 to schedule an appointment to have the BarCode affixed to their vehicle(s). The application fee includes one (1) bar code. Each additional bar code is $10.00 per vehicle. Vehicles must be owned by the resident and registered to an address behind the gates.
If you plan to go on vacation, or move out for an extended period of time, we recommend utilizing the vacation/vacancy notification form. You must fill out the front of the form and submit it to Harbour Island Security via fax at (813) 221-3320 or drop it off at either gate house.

If you are in doubt about how to respond in the event of an emergency, always call 911 first.

One of Harbour Island's biggest selling points has been and continues to be the access control of the residential gates. Our current Access Control Operations Manager is Richard Sloggett. Richard is a retired Tampa law enforcement officer where he served the Tampa community for 26 years. The position is an important one, as he is on call 24/7 and manages the security contract with a third party and serves as lead interface between contractors and residents within the South NSD.
