Last time I told you about Blossom Park condos in April, owners had decided they wanted to take back control of their Association from Receiver Frank Barber.
Several of the owners had high hopes of turning the place around, after many years of neglect. A judge terminated the Receiver’s contract last month.
Well, it didn’t take long for the newly formed Condo Board to throw in the towel. Assessments are seriously delinquent, and remaining owners are apparently not interested in paying for a place that has become a haven for crime and a safety hazard. Reportedly, the trash is piling up now, too.
Where are the developers willing to swoop in like White Knights and rescue this dilapidated old motel turned into low-income condos? Isn’t that why Florida clings to its “eminent domain for condos” law?
It appears Blossom Park has reached the end of its useful life.
