Golf Carts

Operators of electric carts are required to obey all traffic laws within the community.  Special attention should be given to stop signs and cart speed.  Residents should operate carts on the promenades except where no promenade or sidewalk is available.  Carts are required to have illumination on the front and back when operating between sunset and sunrise.  Resident’s carts must be registered at the POA and display the current year sticker as directed by the POA.  New stickers must be obtained by the owner annually by March 31st.  The POA Golf Cart registration form can be downloaded here:  Golf Cart Registration Form

A current certificate of insurance that shows a minimum limit of liability in the amount of $300,000 is required to store and use a small boat, canoe or kayak on JL Property.

Owners of all boats located within the JL waterways must secure their boat during a storm event.

JL POA Delinquency Policy

As an owner at Jonathan’s Landing, your obligation is to pay your assessment on time in order to have the POA operate efficiently. If you do not pay on time then the following will apply to your account:

Following notice to Members of assessment amount and due date, if unpaid upon 30 days after due date; send first notice notifying Member of delinquency and addition of interest to amount owed.

Reinforce delinquency status with second notice at new due date and that the account will then be turned over to collections if no payment received by due date of second notice.

The addition of legal fees may be applied to the account and assessment accelerated for the remainder of the year.

Cable TV may be interrupted for lack of payment for Cable Services.

Upon owner initiating payment plan, at any point, The Board may consider interest leniency if no record of delinquencies in past 5-year period. However, legal fees will not be waived.

Dress Codes

Proper and appropriate attire is required throughout all areas of Jonathan’s Landing.

All joggers, pedestrians, and cyclists must wear tops that cover their upper body. Wear brightly colored clothes when possible for safety.


Joggers, pedestrians, cyclists and those on golf carts must use the promenades rather than the streets.

Everyone is expected to adhere to the posted speed limits and to obey stop signs.

Prohibition of Fireworks

Residents and their guests are prohibited from using any fireworks at any time; at any private residences, on any dock, roadway, sidewalk, open space, pavilion, or parking area within Jonathan’s Landing.

The following definitions and penalties are consistent with the Fla. Stat. Sections 791.01-791.08 and the JL POA is using them as its basis for this policy.

“Fireworks” means and includes any combustible or explosive composition or substance or combination of substances or, except as hereinafter provided, any article prepared for the purpose of producing a visible or audible effect by combustion, explosion, deflagration, or detonation.  The term includes blank cartridges and toy cannons in which explosives are used, the type of balloons which require fire underneath to propel them, firecrackers, torpedoes, skyrockets, roman candles, dago bombs, and any fireworks containing any explosives or flammable compound or any tablets or other device containing any explosive substance.

Using fireworks may be punishable as a first-degree misdemeanor, which may carry a sentence of up to a year in jail and up to $1,000 in fines.  These penalties shall be imposed by the state, not the JL POA.

This policy, however, does not preclude the JL POA and JL Golf Club from hosting their holiday fireworks shows because they use licensed professionals and have received county and state permits.

Sparklers are not considered fireworks and may be used any day of the year.
