There will be a meeting hosted by Polk County Elected Officials Wednesday June 13,2018 at 10AM in the APV Community Center located on Marigold Avenue in Poinciana. This meeting will be for the Polk Officials to listen to what Poinciana residents have to say about the Poinciana traffic situation and say what they plan to do about the situation.
There has been many things happening recently regarding the Poinciana Lawsuits being filed by Poinciana homeowners against their HOA and developer. It has been a long and hard battle but finally it appears the end is in sight and the residents will be able to take control of their local HOA government away from the developer and corporate interests.
HOA Election Dispute
2018 marks the third consecutive year that Poinciana homeowners have disputed the way the APV HOA elections have been run. The first complaint was dismissed because of a procedure error. The second was decided in binding arbitration in favor of the homeowner. The APV and developer Avatar did an 'end around' action with the 10th District Circuit court to circumvent that ruling. After the Fed 13,2018 election another homeowner has filed a third complaint.
HOA Breach of Contract Lawsuit
The original homeowner lawsuit filed back in December 2015 is heading for trial over the Breach of Contract issue. The homeowners claim that the developer and HOA are guilty of Breach of Contract because a legal agreement signed back in 1985 between the Poinciana Developer and HOA with the homeowners represented as third parties called for control the Poinciana HOA to be turned over to the residents and that never happened.
