If we ever have a flood, I'd rather be living in Pine Hills; where the water percolates and runs down the hills...Pine Hills needs a new towncenter with affordable condo's at the old Pine Hills Shopping Center Site. I remember going to the theater there and getting some ice cream at Augies. Those were the golden years for the westside community...

After many years in the same state of disrepair the location was suddenly, quickly and efficiently determined to be a danger to the public. Dangerous to trespassers yes. Dangerous to motorists no. This was done outside of the code enforcement action and channels already initiated and established. A hastily conjured up special board was assembled to make the determination of danger to the new building official. The old one would not play and is gone as he did not believe the plaza presented an immediate danger to the gneral public or adjacent buildings. The city did not and does not own the property. The city hopes and dreams that it will get the million dollar cost back from all the middle class time share owners. The city trespassed. The city demolished private property
on behalf of a private developer who may or may not develope an adjacent chunk of land. Note sign at Old Winter Garden and Maguire about a new complex. The old plaza was nearly invisible behind the trees as it sat nearly 1000 feet from Maguire Blvd and Colonial Ave. I drove by there often when the building stood solid as a bunker and never once was I scared or in fear.

So what happens to the owners? Don't get me wrong I do know it was an eyesore and needed to come down, but are the owners who are still paying a note on a property they have not been able to use for 10 years going to get anything from this developer? Yes, I know someone that is still paying a note on her unit from this place, my mother.
does she still own the note?
