It’s not about the pace, it’s about the process. Moving forward in increments like all of SWFL.

To date approximately 11 unit weeks sold between owners have been recorded with Lee county. We’d like to remind owners who sell units privately to send a copy of the recorded deed from Lee County to the Surfrider office. The county does not alert us when these types of transactions occur, and we cannot change Surfrider records until we receive your newly recorded deed.

We have received the engineers report confirming the remaining portion of the building is a complete tear down, however we require further information and approval to proceed.

We’ve spoken with multiple demo companies to secure quotes. Two have come out to the resort to measure and review property. We are eagerly awaiting quotes.

SBA loan is in the works.

The next regularly scheduled board meeting is Friday, February 24 at 1pm EST. Zoom information will be posted.

The entire island is still devasted. Resorts, hotels, individual homes are still empty, and gutted waiting on insurance, engineers, and workers. It will take years for the island to be back to the island we know and love.

Some picture of this past week at Surfrider.  Moving some of the debris that is outside of the building to the side of the road for collection.

The weather has been great, as usual, sunny, warm, no rain.  This morning was a little brisk for us Floridians, lol, it was 58 degrees.

We continue to make progress at Surfrider.  A demo company has been hired.  They will receive demo permit when Sanibel officials have finished crossing all the T's and dotting all the I's.  Our permit will probably take a couple months.  A survey company has been hired.  A current survey is an essential part of the planning process.  Hope to have the survey in our hands in a couple weeks.  An architectural engineering firm has been hired.  Their architectural/engineering design team has already had their initial meeting with the board building/design committee and RAL.  The meeting was very productive and conceptual planning has begun.

I drive out to Sanibel weekly to pick up any mail that goes to the Sanibel post office, most gets rerouted to the RAL office.  The drive down West Gulf Dr. towards Surfrider is always eye-opening.  We see homes, condos, resorts, all empty waiting on the next phase.  The lucky places (very few) who had lessor damage have started the repair process.  We are no further behind or ahead of any other place on Sanibel.

We found a tomato plant growing on Surfrider property.  So far it's given us over 25 tomatoes, with many more ripening.  We also found a watermelon growing, not ripe yet, but I think it will be next week :)
