Did you know that all exterior modifications of private property within The Landings require a permit through the Community Development Department (CDD)? Additionally, waste dumpsters, portable storage units, and temporary bathroom facilities also require a TLA permit.

Already issued a TLA permit? Please make sure that your permit isn’t approaching expiration! Permit extension applications are available, along with all other CDD applications, here under Architectural Forms.

Now is the time to check your property and decide what work you’d like to have done on your landscaping...between mid-September and late February, the non-nesting season for most birds and animals.

Plan now since this is the time you really can see what needs work, while everything is in full bloom, and you can contract with a tree company.

The beauty of The Landings is undeniable to anyone who dares to take a look. Sprawling golf courses, beautiful trees and flowers, co-mingled with some of nature’s most exotic creatures -- furry, gilled, and feathered -- help make up this island paradise.

But living among such beautiful creatures often can be hard on residents’ landscape designs. It is well known that deer and other animals enjoy feasting on plants and flowers. In fact, they find certain varieties even tastier than others. Despite your best efforts to thwart their meal plans, they seem to win every time.

Time spent outdoors, however, also has a way of instilling important personal attributes such as patience and perseverance, not to mention discovering how working together can make a big difference.
