market value of personal property, from our income taxes. Click on the link below to read more about taking advantage of this possible tax deduction.

Please Read! FDEM has changed the way to request the removal of your home.
Posted on Dec 1st, 2022 Comments (0)
We were recently informed that FDEM has updated their system so that homeowners who previously submitted a request the "GENERAL DEBRIS REMOVAL APPLICATION" must now go back to https://iandebriscleanup.com/ click the box "PROPERTY DEBRIS REMOVAL OR LOST TITLE PROPERTY APPLICATION" and fill in the required information. Doing this provides the "title waver" for your home to be demolished and disposed of for free.
Please note that even if you emailed them with the supplemental information (as described in the last Zoom meeting) you MUST fill this out online. Their system is now set up to automatically link the new request to remove titled property (your home) to the original general debris removal request. As part of this submittal you must upload a copy of your drivers license. You may also include pictures of your damage property but that is not mandatory.
As before you will submit the application and be instructed to wait...their system will think asit uploads the attached pictures and I.D. then reply back asking you to confirm your request by supplying an electronic signature. Follow those directions click submit and you should receive a response that your application has been accepted. Lastly their system will send you a confirmation email in up to 24 hours (watch your spam folder also) verifying that you successfully submitted your application.
This form MUST be completed if you want your home disposed of for free.
I know this is different than what we were asked to do previously (amend our original request with an email). FDEM found that it was necessary to have the "title waver" electronically linked to all requests so if you want your home disposed of you MUST fill this out.
Wait 24 hours for your confirmation email if you don't get a response call them FDEM @ 850-961-2002 and ask if they received. If they did not have them complete the form while you are on the phone. 
 
Thanks for your understanding.

Posted on Nov 3rd, 2022
NOT EVERY OWNER HAS TO FILL THIS FORM OUT. IF YOU DO NOT WANT ASSISTANCE WITH DEBRIS REMOVAL YOU DON'T HAVE TO FILE THIS FORM.

The Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) is accepting applications for the Hurricane Ian Debris Cleanup Program to assist with the removal of debris, including displaced and abandoned vehicles, vessels, and other titled property from qualifying private and commercial properties, as well as waterways.

Each unit owner has to fill out this application if you want debris and or your entire trailer removed. Once submitted you should receive a confirming email with a case number. If you don't receive an email you should call them and get your case number. Also check your Spam folder for the automated response since some folks have found them there.

We want to make sure no ones property is being removed without permission.

Please share this to all in the park. Thanks
Property Tax Information
Posted on Oct 19th, 2022
This information was gathered by a resident who spoke to the Lee County Property Appraisers office on 10/10
 
We pay property tax in arrears. The value of home and property is done the first of the year, so for 2022 our taxes were based on our property’s appraisal as of 1/1/2022 for the entire year. So, even if your property is destroyed on 9/27, you would not get a refund for the time between 9/27 and 12/31.
UNLESS!!!! The state of Florida has done this in the past after hurricanes etc.—They provide a retroactive tax break for people impacted---but this is done by the state—NOT Lee County. So Florida may or may not do this. We don’t know yet.
 
So now it is important to let Lee County know the status of our homes which will affect the appraisal on 1/1/2023. They advised each of us to go to LEEPA.org to the hurricane reporting link and provide documentation of the extent of damage. Documentation would include any pictures of your property and inspection reports (for example by a claims adjuster). You need to set up an account if you do not have one already. Then search and select your property. It will then give you the opportunity to upload photos that you have saved.
