Strategic Projects

CHPOA engages in a number of strategic initiatives on behalf of its members and all the property owners in Cape Haze.  This page contains descriptions of currently active projects and periodic update of project status as posted from time to time.  Check back here to stay abreast of changes in the community and the latest on our strategic initiatives.

Deed Restriction Revitalization                                                                                                                                 

When Cape Haze was established in 1953 a set of Deed Restrictions were established and imposed by the developer on all properties in Cape Haze.  In 1983, the Cape Haze Property Owners Association (CHPOA) was granted the right to administer a subset of these restrictions by the developer.  The original restrictions, which defined certain factors that would have maximum impact on maintaining property values, had a fifty-year life and expired in 2003.  You can view our historical deed restrictions by clicking here

All of the residential properties in Cape Haze originally held by the developer have been sold and consequently the original developer has ceased to be a factor in Cape Haze.  Outside of county government, CHPOA remains the only body with any influence on issues within Cape Haze.

 A change to Florida law defined a new process for “restriction revitalization”, a process that does not require the existence of a homeowner’s association with mandatory membership.  Instead, it requires only that a simple majority of property owners indicate its support for a set of deed restrictions and that such support be filed with the Florida Department of Community Affairs and, in our case, Charlotte County. 

During 2011 and 2012, all owners of property in Cape Haze west of state road 775 were polled to determine the level of support for re-instituting deed restrictions in our community.  By the necessary majority, the owners voted to adopt the proposed restrictions.  The approval of the Florida Department of Community Affairs was then gained on March 30, 2012, and these revitalized restrictions were filed with Charlotte County.  They are now in effect and govern all properties in Cape Haze west of state road 775, regardless of how any individual property owner might have voted on the issue.
