Live Oak Preserve resident will join board in May


Homeowners to get second board member

By December, homeowners in Live Oak Preserve will take control of the Live Oak I Community Development District, which taxes the residents there to maintain the community's infrastructure.

So far, the CDD has been controlled by developer Engle Homes and Engle's predecessor, Transeastern Homes.

CDD members agreed Tuesday to fill a current vacancy by electing a Live Oak resident to the board at the May 13 meeting. That member will serve six months until homeowners get to vote in November's general elections.

Although dominated by Engle executives, the board appointed resident Michael Ceparano to a board seat last year.

May's election will give residents a second seat among five. Board chairman Jeff Bloch of Engle said he plans to resign soon, and his fellow members agreed this morning to leave Bloch's seat vacant until November.

That means the board seats would be split 2-2 between Engle executives and Live Oak residents until November.
