Vacation Rental Preemption Bills Die in Tallahassee

We won this year’s battle but need to be prepared to fight again next year

At the April 9 General Membership Meeting, City Manager Christopher Lagerbloom gave us an update on the status of HB 987 “Vacation Rentals” and SB 824 ” Private Property Rights of Homeowners” which are currently being voted on in various committees on their way to becoming law. Both these bills seek to preempt the regulation of vacation rentals to the State and would invalidate Fort Lauderdale’s current vacation rental regulations. Apparently the “property right” to turn a house into a hotel is more important than the “property right” of residents to the peaceful enjoyment of their home and the safety of their families.

CFLCA voted unanimously to oppose both bills.

CFLCA Unanimously Supports the Police Station Bond

There will be a special election on March 12. There will be two bond items on the ballot: a $100,000,000 bond for a new Police Station and a $200,000,000 bond for new and improved Parks.

They are separate items and at the January General Membership Meeting representatives from the Police Department and the Parks Department made presentations. The Infrastructure Task Force supports the Police Bond and information about the deplorable conditions in the building can be downloaded here    Police Station pdf

The membership voted unanimously to support the Police Bond and urges you to talk with your members about the need to vote on March 12.
