We provide our annual recap of community association happenings at the legislative level. This includes:

- HB 971 concerning Community Development Districts
- SB 190 concerning conservation easements
You will also find insight on the Fire Sprinkler Retrofit requirements and the deadline for opting out of the retrofit. Although December 31, 2016 is months away, waiting until the last minute could backfire, given all that must be done to properly opt-out. If your community is not opting out of the retrofit then it is just as important that the process be commenced to ensure compliance with the final retrofit deadlines (i.e., end of 2019).
