****HOA MEMBER MEETING****
REVITALIZATION VOTE POSTPONED

The passing of Mr. Bill Harris, a long time board member and a member of the revitalization committee, created a delay in the continuation of the process. By Florida Statute, the committee must have at least three members. In November, Mr. Kris Rauha, also the LHOA President, agreed to accept the additional role as the third member of the committee. It is the intent to have all packages hand delivered by the end of this calendar year and to mail any remaining packages in January, 2018. Within the first quarter of 2018, a member meeting will be announced to open all ballots and record the vote.

Next HOA Board Meeting:
Thursday, December 14, 2017
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: Lake Washington Fellowship Church; 4050 Lake Washington Road, Melbourne, FL 32935

The Longwood HOA would like to extend its condolences to the Harris family. Mr. Bill Harris, a long-time resident of our community passed away recently. Mr. Harris was a member of the board for many years and served as Secretary for much of the time. His service to the Board and to Longwood are appreciated. Our prayers are with his family.

FYI

REVITALIZATION OF COVENANTS

• Unfortunately, due to the running of time, and the unintended impacts of Florida Statute 712, Marketable Record Title Act passed in the late 1960’s, the Covenants have expired and are no longer in effect unless what is referred to as a “revitalization“ occurs, by which the Covenants are in essence re-recorded.
• Pursuant to Florida Statute §720.403, the Covenants can be revived provided the Covenants (as amended) are approved by a majority of the Lot Owners (139 lots) within Longwood at a properly called meeting.
• A revitalization committee has been formed and information will be mailed out to all homeowners soon.

Please visit Revitalization Page for more information.

Revitalization committee members are listed below.
