board meeting

The last regular board meeting of the Gator Trace Master Property Owners Association Inc. was held on Friday, March 5, 2021 at 9 a.m. in the Gator Trace Clubhouse. When a future meeting is scheduled it will be posted here.

Due to COVID precautions, the Master Board of Directors is striving to provide ways for owners to participate in meetings without being physically present. Here are some adjustments and accommodations that will be made:

–Space for in-person attendance will be limited; mask required.

–We will make available on the Master Assoc. website a report of the meeting in the form of the draft minutes shortly afterwards. All other approved minutes are also posted on this site.

You Can Find It Here!

Check out this site—you’ll find practically everything you need to get around except a golf cart. Master Board meeting minutes are in the menu under “Master Board,” along with announcements, an archive of past e-newsletters and more. Under the “Contact Us” menu you can ask a question, change your address or opt-in to e-communications. You’ll find a page for each sub-association under the Sub-Associations menu, and a link to the clubhouse website and calendar is here too.

Better Safe than Sorry

Just a security reminder that leaving valuables in your car is asking for trouble. Please be sure to safeguard your property — lock your house and your vehicles and close your garage door.

A Bit About “MRTA”

The Marketable Record Title Act, Chapter 712 of the Florida Statutes, a.k.a. MRTA, requires homeowners’ associations to preserve the integrity of their declarations by filing a written notice in accordance with said chapter during the 30 years from when they were first recorded. On July 8, 2016, the board of directors approved the recording of the Statement of Marketable Title Action, which retained the status of the declaration as the source of marketable title and renewed it for another 30-year period.
