Just to give an example of how long I have been trying to get the City of Plantation to hold the Invesca Development Group | Strata at Plantation development that was formally known as the Plantation Business Park.

While searching Google for the results when someone searches for me, the City of Plantation City Council Minutes from January 7, 2009 minutes from January 7, 2009 returned as a result.


Page 12 reads:

Peter Xxxxxx, resident of NW 8th Street, commented about the Plantation Business Park and the fact that there are trailers and storage trucks on the property across the street from his residence.  The business at that location does not have a business license.  The fines for Code Enforcement violations have been accruing since 2005.  He expressed disappointment that nothing is being done to rectify the situation and questioned how he can get the matter resolved.

Councilman Petrocelli advised it is the City’s responsibility to represent the residents.  He observed that Mr. Xxxxxx’s quality of life is being impacted. Councilwoman Bendekovic advised she was unaware of the situation and assured Mr. Xxxxxx that the matter will be addressed. Mayor Armstrong thanked Mr. Xxxxxx for coming forward and underscored that if they are not aware of the situation, they cannot fix it.  She noted the property had reached a point of being potentially foreclosed.  When the development came forward, there was some discussion about using the influences that were there to keep the property up.  Since that is not happening and if the foreclosure is mature, they can move on it.  She advised that she will look into the matter tomorrow. In response to Mr. Xxxxxx, Mayor Armstrong explained the foreclosure is an automatic consideration at the time that the fine reaches the $40,000 level

She indicated she would inquire as to where this case is in the fine process. Councilman Levy encouraged the citizens to let the Code Enforcement Department know if there is a problem.  Now that they are aware of the problem, there will be some type of resolution. In response to Mr. Xxxxxx, Mayor Armstrong noted it is the job of Code Enforcement to seek out violations.  However, she advised that often times Code Enforcement does not get the cooperation or response from the persons in violation, and the legal requirements take time in the process in order to get something right.  She emphasized the City does not allow any properties in the City to remain in a derelict condition particularly in terms of trash.

Councilwoman Uria thanked Mr. Xxxxxx for bringing this matter to their attention. Councilman Fadgen observed that the Code Enforcement is not overstaffed and the firemen and police are not aware of all the things going on.


From 2009 to now 2017 the City of Plantation has failed to provide the same services every resident of the City of Plantation deserves and expects upon choosing to reside and own a home in the City of Plantation.

I was told by Councilwoman and now Mayor Bendekovic that the property had accrued massive Code Violation fines but not at the automatic foreclosure level.

But when searching the Online Activity Citizen Access there is  NOT ONE record of a fine being paid! The property was formerly addressed as 4350 W Sunrise Blvd with violations back to 2004. Invesca Development Group | Strata at Plantation change the address and is now 4350 NW 8th Court.  Violations throughout 2016 and again NO FINES! They are currently have two open Violations and the Invesca Development Group | Strata at Plantation has done nothing to be in compliance!

Cannot wait for some of the residents in Plantation Park East Community become aware that they are paying fines while both this property owner and the previous one has yet to pay a dime but continue to violate City of Plantation Code Ordinances!

Invesca Development Group | Strata at Plantation Violations:

The violations that were cited during 2015 are not recorded due to the property ownership change over where the City of Plantation could not deliver Code Violations!
