1.          Disclosure.  Whether providing a conspicuous disclosure regarding a developer’s
             long-term control of an association or association property at the time of purchase would

             special assessments or amendment of rules regarding use of parcels.  Compare

              designated agenda items at any meeting of the Board.  Compare Section 718.112(2)
