Fall is quickly drawing near!

The month of September is sure to be busy with end-of Summer activities, the start of the school year and the beginning of the Fall season! Events will soon be filling the calendar, but don't forget the holidays celebrated this month, including Labor Day on the 1st and Patriot Day on the 11th! Labor Day is a great time to take one last Summer vacation, so enjoy this time with friends and family!

Significant developments have occured on the important issue of flood insurance. Initial FEMA flood insurance maps, released last year, were poorly drawn up, and very much to the disadvantage of Andros Isle homeowners and buyers. West Palm Beach Mayor Geri Muoio and especially our own City Commissioner Keith James led a strong effort to challenge that map. They hace succeeded. The new, revised FEMA flood maps identify Andros Isle in an "X" category, meaning subject to a 500 year flood event, and not requiring expensive flood insurance. These revised maps have not yet become official, but hopefully soon. There has NEVER been any flooding in Andros Isle, not even street flooding, despite past hurricanes and major rain events, thanks to property elevations and especially our excellently designed drainage system.

Andros Isle continues to realize the advantages of its superior location. Buyers are discovering the values and appeal of the various residential styles, and property values remain strong. Owners considering a change should consult with a local Realtor, knowledgeable about the neighborhood. I welcome conversations with any owner or prospective buyer seeking balanced, thoughtful, informed, and accurate information as property decisions are made.

Andros Isle remains a community with no age restrictions, and is pet friendly. The attached homes have had their roofs all pressure washed.

Sincerely Yours,
