Hypoluxo Commons Association Document approval
Mr. Rubin provided background information regarding the Project. There were two issues that were discussed during the Final Development Order approval for the Hypoluxo Commons project including pet and rental limitations. There is a master association for the entire project and a sub association for the residential. There will be restrictions as far as burning of the Scrub area and noise. The leasing restrictions include no term less than six months and no subleasing. The pet restrictions include 2 domestic dogs or cats, but not a limitation on the size. The association reserves the right to place further restrictions on pets. Because these two restrictions were noted in the Development Agreement, if changed they must be approved by Council.
Attorney Chris Bernard indicated he would take back any recommendations from the Council. He noted the key concerns have been met but allow flexibility for additional restrictions to be imposed by the future associations.
Mayor Brown expressed concern with regard to the lack of a weight limitation specifically for dogs and the potential complaints that the Town may have to address between neighbors.
Vice Mayor Smith strongly urged consideration be given to mixing large and small dogs in the same community.
Mayor Brown opened the discussion to the general public.
John Sochacki expressed concern with regard to pets being walked in the Scrub area and questioned the makeup and control of the associations.
Mr. Bernard noted the association control will be balanced and equal. The master association will be compromised of board members from both associations.
Vice Mayor Smith moved approval of the Hypoluxo Commons Association Documents as presented. Council Member Doyle seconded the motion. Vote: Unanimous
