Villager rips out illicit artificial turf grass but still facing $1,300 in fines
A villager tore up illegal artificial turf grass in her home but still faces fines of $ 1,300.
Earlier this year, Shirley Schwartz made local headlines when she appeared before the Community Development District 6 Board of Supervisors in a public hearing to save the artificial turf grass she was using without the blessing of the Architectural Review Committee. The CDD 6 Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 and ordered her to remove the artificial turf.
This turfgrass was laid at Shirley Schwartz’s Edgewater Bungalows.

After months of fighting with the CDD 6 Board of Directors, Community Standards, and the Architectural Review Committee, Schwartz has finally eased off and removed the artificial turf that cost $ 4,000 to put in her home in the Edgewater Bungalows. She replaced the artificial turf with stone.
Fines were fined $ 50 per day during the trial. Schwartz said those fines had reached $ 1,300.
She reached out to the CDD 6 board asking for the US $ 1,300 fines to be forgiven.
