We want to take this opportunity to remind you that the rainy season is upon us. During this time of year, the rain, heat, and humidity create mildew "build up" on the exterior of homes and sheds. Please inspect your home and additions to see if your property requires pressure cleaning.
Additionally, with rain and sun comes the tropical growth of the grass and weeds. Please adjust your lawn maintenance schedule accordingly.
Lastly, we would like to remind you carports are for vehicles and not to store excess home items, garage sale items, or business items. If you need more storage, please consider purchasing an onsite storage shed or check with Jerry for a spot in the “compound.”
We appreciate your assistance in keeping Terra Mar Village the best it can be.
From our side of maintenance matters, we are pleased to share that we have completed a “stainless steel” hardware upgrade to the entire fishing pier. This upgrade was a massive project and expense as the previous owners used galvanized hardware instead of the much more expensive stainless hardware. Unfortunately, over time, the galvanized metal corrodes and deteriorates from the ocean. Next on the list is various drainage projects around the clubhouse and Red bass. There has also been a significant amount of tree and ground clearing in the storage yard. Also, the company is currently accepting seawall bids for the canal waterfront area. Further down the road, this winter, when pool use is at the least, we are reviewing and contemplating the costs of what it will take to resurface the gutter areas around the clubhouse pool!
Should you require assistance regarding your property, or want to learn more about what we are doing, please contact Diane or Jerry Husmann at (386) 957-1992.

Several new lot purchasers have asked: If they purchase two lots but only put up one home - could they receive a break on their amenity fee?
What a great question!
First - I checked with the county and found that with minimal fees and paperwork - two adjoining lots can be consolidated onto one tax bill! By doing so - the Resident gives up the right to build another home (for now). However, they may qualify to make other improvements to the lot with proper approvals and permitting.
And to reiterate. The "owner of record" STILL PAYS PROPERTY TAX FOR TWO LOTS - it's just on one tax bill. There is no magic way to get out of taxes (or amenity fees).
The second detail is whether or not Terra Mar could extend a discount? After all, the community was platted for over 300 lots in three sections, and the deeded right to use the waterfront and amenities is conditioned by payment of the monthly fee. So, like the tax bill, even if two lots are combined - the fact remains that the Resident still owns two lots!
The result! Terra Mar Village is pleased to offer a 50% discount subject to some pretty straightforward conditions:
1. This offer has a limited timeframe. Current owners have until January 1, 2019, to apply with Terra Mar Village for the 50% discount.
2. The lots must be adjoining and taxed on one bill.
3. Both lots must have been purchased from Terra Mar Village.
4. The primary lot must pay FMV ($125 per month) before the second lot can be discounted to $63 per month for one year.
5. The amenity payments must remain current. Any default reverts the amounts owed on both lots to FMV as contracted and deed restricted.
6. Like any promotion, we reserve the right to cancel this offer at any time, and other unforeseen conditions may apply.
Please don't delay! All you need to do is email Diane and she will handle the details for you.
Happy Holidays from our family to yours!
With projects in the works and new renovations to come, please stop by and see the Village. We have new homes, benches, further dock improvements, a clubhouse bathroom remodel, and solar heating plans for the waterfront pool all in process! Life is Good, expecially at Terra Mar Village!
We've had some requests for some RESERVED parking spots at the clubhouse to help those who need help with mobility enjoy the Clubhouse. If access to these spots would help you - please contact the office and Diane will happily work with you to get you set up! If you are not registered with the office to use these spots, PLEASE do not park in these spots or risk being towed for repeat offenders. Hope everyone is staying cool and dry!
Good Afternoon Diane and TMV Residents,
Our mobile unit's next scheduled date to be at your facility is on June 5th and here is the flyer if you could put it up for the residents.

A recent question came up regarding rule 7a which basically states that Management has the right to inspect a resale property during the sales process. To be clear, the purpose of this rule is to be sure that a buyer and seller account for repairs to the property during the sales process, so that the property conforms to the Park Package, i.e., each home must have proper skirting, a carport, and a shed etc.
The rule in question was written a long time ago and states that Management has the right to inspect the outside and inside of a home during the sales process. Sometime after this rule was written and approved by the State of Florida, the state modified the Florida Statue to clarify that the homeowner must give management written approval. We have no problem with this as most of everything we need to know about the home can easily be seen from roadside. Therefore, the purpose of this post is to clarify that if and when there is a conflict in language, between a rule and any State of Federal law, it is our business practice to employ the terms of the law first, into and before the rule in question.
Thanks for the question and please feel free to keep them coming! We are proud of our Village and know that our Residents and future Residents also love where they live!
