    Hurricane Shelter Info
    Posted on Jun 22, 2018
    All Bird Bay Owners,
    In the event of a hurricane, the Bird Bay Community Association and Management strongly encourage all residents to make their own plan to evacuate or make arrangements to go to an authorized hurricane shelter.  
    At this point, there is no plan to open the Bird Bay clubhouse during a hurricane.  The clubhouse is not approved for or equipped to be a hurricane shelter.  
    For your information, we have attached the latest Emergency Services Evacuation publication from Sarasota County that lists approved shelters in the area. 
    Thank you,
    Bird Bay Management
