Welcome to Longwood's Web
- Underground Digging Tom Sylvester talked with the crew working at the step-down transformer on Village Park Drive. They indicated to him that they are preparing to replace all the primary electrical service cables in Longwood. The change out will take a while to accomplish but they are going to lay new cables from each transformer to our houses first; then FPL will notify each homeowner that there will be an interruption to our electrical service which will last for about an hour or two. Once the new cable is operational and we have good service, they will remove the old cables and finish off the ground treatment from their digging. Their plan is to move from one site to the next when completed. Will keep you up to date with our experience as it transpires.

- Budget: The 13-14 final budget actuals and the new 14-15 budget have been added to the site.
- Deed Restrictions: Homeowners are reminded that just like the sign says everytime you enter or leave Longwood, there are Deed Restrictions to this subdivision and your property (just like every other Brevard development in the past 20 years). You agreed to live within these restrictions as a condition to taking title to your property. Whether you were given a copy of the restrictions or not, (and you should have been by your sales agent or title company at closing), it should be clearly written on your deed that title is subject to existing deed restrictions. A copy of the common Deed Restrictions are available elsewhere on this Web site under "Legal". One major restriction is: there are to be no substantial change to the property's appearance without the approval of the Architectural Control Committee. This includes additions, exterior paint and fences. Presently the full Board is handling the Architectural Control Committee duties. Recently a homeowner had to repaint their home when their loud color did not meet Community standards. Always obtain Architectural Control Committee (Board) approval prior to making additions to your home and before making substantially changes to its color or appearance. Always obtain permission if you need to take down the Association's fence. A short discussion before hand can save all parties a lot of grief and money.
- Architect Committee: Duties are presently being handled by the Board. If you are planning any substantial changes to your home or grounds (including fences, color changes, driveway modifications, home additions, etc), you MUST have Board approval per your deed restrictions. A couple of homeowners have had to redo projects that were not initially Board approved. Be advised that the Board will NOT approve ribbon (2 strips) driveways or loud colors.
