ISLANDS NEWS

It’s Always Good to Know

Recently there have been questions regarding sidewalk access around the Islands. In particular, times where vehicles are parked across the sidewalk or large tree branches from an owner’s property are projecting over the sidewalk. Doing some research through the City of Tampa’s Neighborhood Enhancement Division, the following City Ordinances as it relates to these two items are explained (click links below):

Sec. 22-8. – Obstructing streets, sidewalks, alleys, etc.; exceptions.

Sec. 22-309. – Trimming branches of trees projecting over streets and sidewalks.

While it is always great to be informed, it is just as important to work with each other when an issue arises. We live in a neighborhood so being neighborly is kinda what it is all about 🙂

Flood Insurance

As Hurricane season winds down (no pun intended) we tend to forget about the rains and the potential for flooding here on Davis Islands. While most folks with a federally backed mortgage have flood insurance through FEMA there is a growing base of homeowners finding Private Flood insurance policies. While I was researching for my own home I came across a list of Flood Insurance Writers in Florida. The theory is that these insurance carriers will help to increase competition and thereby bring down rates. I thought I would pass along this list from the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation in case you were evaluating for your own situation.

Halloween in the Village Photos

Thank you to everyone who participated in the DI Halloween in the Village. We had close to 400 kids plus dozens of pets. We captured different photos from the day, here is a link to a quick
