Turner House Update

The other day while on my daily walk I met a realtor taking pictures of the outside of the Brick Turner House (7315 Gulf Blvd).  We chatted for bit and I found out that he represents a group of investors out of Orlando who are interested in purchasing the home and the lot to the immediate west of the house (the Turners own it as well). The buyer intends to make it a vacation rental should a deal go through. I have the realtor’s contact information and he told me he would keep me periodically updated.

In the meantime I phoned the County Attorney’s offices and learned that there may be, once again, another day in court for the Turners soon.

I don’t have any update on the Yellow Turner House.

Stay Tuned!

Gulf Blvd. Irrigation Project Update

A power point presentation has been put together and will be presented to the new board of County Commissioners in early 2019. We intend to meet with  Commissioner Piech soon to set this up.


Thank you.
