Recent LGPOA Meeting Update

From Secretary, Terrie Weibley:

The County has installed new markers to replace those missing from the Intracoastal Waterway, providing navigation clarity.

There will be extra law enforcement protection provided on LGI over the New Year’s holiday peak times.

The Island Clean-Up will be scheduled annually now in the Spring, with this next Clean-Up concentrating on the mangroves where trash and debris may have accumulated.

North-south access and adequate marina spaces for LGI property owners continue to be the focus of the Planning Committee.

If you are interested in helping on the social committee please contact Rhonda at

It is recognized that improper golf cart use is directly tied to property owners’ threats to close “roads.” (See golf cart etiquette covered elsewhere in this Coconut Telegraph and also the fire Chief’s update) Owners of carts can be proactive with their families and guests in achieving continued north-south access through insisting on courteous, safe behavior.

LGIFR Chief Bill Underhill has received complaints regarding the burning of unacceptable materials. Any burning of furniture, plastics or trash other than yard debris will result in an investigation by the County and subsequent citation. We don’t need toxic air after so much red tide!

New District 5 Representative Jeff Cowherd and District 3 Representative Deric Flom were unanimously elected to serve, as well as Rhonda Olson transitioning to at-large Representative for District 1.

Concerns about trespassing at the South end of the island were discussed. Residents have dealt with their yards being used as restrooms and increased trash and traffic as boats have increasingly anchored and people have stayed for the day on the beach at the Pass. Further discussion about how to support private property owners will continue.

Don’t miss the next meeting scheduled for January 26th at 10 am at the Placida Condos meeting room by the pool.

Minutes from the meeting will be posted at within 10 days.
