The district is responsible for maintenance of the common areas throughout Logan Gate Village. These areas include the main entrances on Logan Gate Boulevard as well as Normandie Road. The district is responsible for the landscaping, maintenance and irrigation in the common areas alongside the roadways, medians, and neighborhood entrances. This board manages the maintenance and upkeep of the outer surfaces of the block wall along Henderson Road, Logan Gate Village Boulevard, Monterey Boulevard and the North side of Normandie Road. The district also maintains certain wetlands and pond areas within the community which is not owned by the residents or managed by Parks and Recreation. This board holds no authority upon the use of private property and therefore this board does not maintain enforcement or interest in deed restrictions. Deed restrictions or specific homeowner issues and complaints must be directed to the proper enforcement authority or homeowners association if applicable. There are 975 private residences located within the community of Logan Gate Village. There is a concrete wall which is 10,000 feet in length which stretches along Monterey Boulevard, Normandie Road and Logan Gate Village Boulevard. The concrete wall sits on the private properties of 105 residences. All issues which are structural in nature are the sole responsibility of the individual homeowner who owns the individual section of concrete wall which requires specific repair and they shall be responsible for those repairs. This may include but not limited to engineering, architectural, permitting, planning, zoning, and code enforcement. The tax district does not have the authority or funding to repair structural damage. An additional note pertaining to the concrete wall, some of the 105 homes have large trees which have amassed significant roots over the past 30 years. To avoid costly repairs, the roots must be pruned and the trees should be managed by the homeowner.

No. LGV does NOT have a Homeowners Association. In previous years, LGV was incorporated as an Association. That corporation has dissolved. LGV reincorporated as a Civic Organization with voluntary dues to assist with small community events.
Do you provide estoppel information?
No. Estoppel requests from Realtors to this agency will not be answered. The tax district does not provide this information. There are no "dues" of any kind that are payable to an association. The tax district receives all of its funds directly from property tax revenue which each homeowner is assessed each year through the Hillsborough County Property Tax Collectors office. This assessment is mandatory and is paid annually to the Tax Collectors Office. The funds are paid by you through your mortgage company (if you have an escrow) or yearly with your property tax bill. The tax district does not send a separate bill. This process is handled by Hillsborough County.
