Back in April, City Council President Lynn Stoner came to my home to walk the Strata at Plantation swale. Feeling at the time that both City Council President Lynn Stoner and Police Captain Gellar, who accompanied us for the walk, were defending Christopher Longsworth instead of being shocked at the condition of the swale. Also joining us was the same neighbor from the first meeting with Christopher Longsworth whom Strata at Plantation swale adjoins and has the same frustrations I have.
Was told that I should see improvements within 30 days. Of course, nothing was done. Starting with the May 9th City of Plantation City Council Meeting I spoke conveying my displeasure with nothing being done.
Over the month of May attending City of Plantation City Council Meetings, Special Magistrate Meetings and the Plantation Gateway Development District Advisory Board Luncheon. Conveying my issues must have struck a nerve.
On May 31, 2018, Diana Berchielli, Chief Landscape Plans Examiner updated the 56: Check for Hearing Compliance as COMPLIED! Without the property being in compliance! On June 18th was told by Diana Berchielli that the Building Director directed the landscaping team to not pursue fines. A Notice of Violation was sent to Christopher Longsworth detailing the modifications needed to have the swale up to code and if not completed by July 13th the matter would be sent to the Special Magistrate to assign fines.
Arriving home after the June 18th meeting there were crews actually working on the swale. From June 18th till today there has been on and off work done but to date the property is still not in compliance to the Notice of Violation.
