We need to support this. The bills relate to hurricane protections in or enhancement in homeowners’ associations. Subsection (6) is added to section 720.3035 F.S. on architectural control covenants, parcel owner improvements, right and privileges. The addition of Subsection 6(a) to “protect the health, safety and welfare of the state” attempts
to ensure uniformity and structure specifications (including color and style) of hurricane protection products for structures or other improvements on parcels. This may ensure uniformity in association hurricane protection products adopted by the board which must be compliant with applicable building code. In addition, the board or any architectural improvement or committee may not deny an application for the installation, enhancement, or replacement of hurricane protection by a parcel owner which conforms to the specifications adopted by the board or committee. However, the board or committee may require a parcel owner to adhere to an existing unified building scheme regarding the external appearance of the structure or other improvement on the parcel.
The bill defines "hurricane protection" to include metal roofs, permanent fixed storm shutters, roll-down track storm shutters, impact-resistant windows and doors, polycarbonate panels, reinforced garage doors and erosion controls.
