Default Arc approval seems to be flawed

Unfortunately, the ARC approval is flawed greatly.
Not only that Village homes are sold out of compliance and then
become a costly problems to the new homeowner to bring it into compliance, there are no checks and balances. The landscapers help the homeowners submit a permit so it is properly written in the permit for approval then it is the wild wild west in installation, which doesn't meet the ARC approval or the deed restrictions of the District. Landscapers do not have to be licensed under DBPR in Florida and the permit is done in the property owners name and the property owner suffers the consequences!
ARC needs to have an inspection process after the ARC permit is approved and the changes are made to the property. Instead, it puts neighbors in a feud with each other and in my opinion, it becomes selective enforcement when a complaint is filed when neighbors complain, in my opinion! This is not complaint driven as we are told, (complete NONSENSE) The Business model of Villa*e P*lm was draw it correctly and we will put it in the way you want in spite of the encroachment to the adjacent neighbor’s property.
Beware of Wendy and Bill's shenanigans, i have had to deal with these Je*ks for over ten years with the neighbors that have encroached my property repeatedly, if i didn't stop them over the years they would of come into my property, BEWARE of this behavior before going forward with any improvements!

Not enough homework. They DO inspections when the work is completed. I had them here twice, once for hard-scapes and the other after my lanai enclosure was completed. They found one issue with the enclosure that I had to have corrected everything else was fine. I think they do a great job if you follow procedures.

Not all people follow the rules. Not all people seek ARC approval. Not all people have good taste.

Your post is a valid vote for anonymous reporting.

Not all complaints are found to be enforceable.

So true but there are so many people that do not know that this is a game homeowners and landscapers play to get what they want. The District board is overwhelmed with this kind of stuff especially on a volunteer basis that the district supervisor work for.

Sounds more like a bitchfest against your neighbors than anything ARC has done wrong

You have your right to your opinion but this happens all over the villages and especially throughout adjacent villages, this is what promotes Trolls my friend! Some districts stopped Anonymous complaints which puts people in danger of retaliation.

I think the homeowner should suffer the consequences for violating the deed restrictions, not the contractor. That is why the homeowner should apply for the ARC permit and not depend on the contractor to do it.

Who are the volunteers that are overwhelmed?

IMO agree but contractors should be burned also especially the ones that don’t submit for arc approval. IMO most yards don’t have that much to work with anyway due to the easement restrictions. I also think there should be statute of limitations, can’t come back after 20 years say it’s out of compliance especially after it been sold.

I believe they receive some minimal compensation for their time - maybe $250/month.

The CDD supervisors have very little to do with ARC approval or investigations. The CDD supervisors only become involved if a homeowner fails to correct an issue after being contacted by Community Standards. I don't remember the last public hearing about a violation in my District. There cannot be more than a handful each year.

Apparently statute of limitations applies to HOA's, not sure why not here.

Wouldn’t the enclosure be from county’s permit department?

Not a big fan of ‘neighbor on neighbor’ anonymous reporting. I believe in ....the accused has a right to know/meet his/her accuser. In civil matters like this, it eliminates neighbors pointing fingers at the wrong parties. These are not law enforcement cases and as such should not have that kind of protective cover...IMO

OP.....since you have a stated history with ARC, why not avail yourself to appointment to the committee? There are periodic openings and as they say....if you can’t beat ‘em.....join ‘em!
