Unique Land Regulations for PGI
Punta Gorda Isles was established as a “Deed Restricted Community” when it was opened for sales. Under Florida law deed restrictions expire 30 years after initial sale unless renewed by the controlling body, formerly the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association. In 1995, the decision was made NOT to renew the deed restrictions but to work with the City to incorporate unique community standards in the City Code. As a result of this decision, Punta Gorda Isles is located in a “Special Overlay District” that contains special land use regulations to preserve the original values of the Isles in addition to the general City code. This is a much stronger standard since these codes are enforced by the City and include provisions for the former deed restrictions which have expired in many portions of the Isles. Your Association continues to actively work with City staff and leadership to maintain our quality of life and to ensure standards are maintained.
