I have a dying Queen Palm in my yard -- the head is on the verge of toppling and has been for some time. I had a landscaper lined up to remove it when a friend suggested I might want to check with the permiting department.

Sure enough, I need a permit. If any of you are in the same position, please check out:

True story
A guy removed like 30 trees along his intra-coastal property. His fine was over a $30,000. He thought he was being a wise guy since the fine didn't really matter to him he is very wealthy and he saw it as the price he had to pay to do what he wanted. "Wrong", he was ordered to replace every tree and when he didn't do it the city began fining him $250.00 a day for every tree. That is $7500.00 a day. A quarter of a million dollars the first month. It got his attention real quick and he complied. The city reduced what he owed by like 90% but they showed their power if you screw around with them..

Yet again...why I would never live in Weston!

We do quite well here in Western Plantation, in terms of quality of life and neighborhood aesthetics, without the stifling HOA fascism...

Just FYI - we don't have an HOA because we live on the Bonaventure side of Weston in a non gated community. It is the city that sets the regulations not just a HOA.

As I recall, the City of Plantation has equally strict regulations. Residents in Bonavneture used to think they were under the radar, but that too has changed. :-) I still love living here and if it means having to comply, so be it.

It's not an HOA issue. It's a requirement of the City of Weston. It's the same in Plantation (where I currently live). Plantation has very strict codes.
