Stay Out: Florida Subdivision Bans Hurricane Evacuees
POSTED: 6:30 am EDT September 9, 2005
OCALA, Fla. -- Subdivision rules are keeping some Ocala residents from temporarily housing Hurricane Katrina evacuees, and angry homeowners said it might make them move.
The board of Majestic Oaks Homeowners Association told homeowners their deed restrictions prohibit housing people who fled the Gulf Coast. According to the Ocala Star-Banner, a flier, distributed by the Majestic Oaks homeowners association Saturday, said that rather than allowing "additional families" in the community, residents were encouraged to contribute to hurricane relief funds.....
According to the newspaper, in 1996, the association took a homeowner to court to make him remove a flagpole and the American flag from his yard.
