    General Community Information, Resources, and Documents

    ATTENTION:  Residents and Title Companies - Look here for information that may provide you resources regarding our local rules & regulations, why we are not an HOA.  Be sure to read "Deed Restrictions & Pasco County Ordinances" article and "Golf Cart Resolution and Regulations" for our resident's that plan to use their golf carts within the community. 

    The LPE Civic Association holds the position that since the Lake Padgett Estates original deed restrictions expired, (see "Deed Restrictions & Pasco County Ordinances" article) it is necessary for residents to follow and adhere to the Pasco County Ordinances and Regulations.  These ordinances help our community to achieve a simple and basic standard of living for a more peaceful and comfortable lifestyle while protecting property values for everyone.

     Forms and requests related to the LPE Independent District can also be accessed by contacting the LPEISD's District Manager, Lynn Hayes with our paid management company: Rizzetta & Company   Sean Craft, District Manager from Rizzetta    phone   (813) 994-1001    email 

     KNOW When You Need a Building Permit:   ARTICLE III. - BUILDING PERMITS

    • Sec. 18-36. - Permit required.

      -(a)Permits are required as stated in this code and the Florida Building Code. The following activities require a building permit unless exempted in writing by the Building Official: erection, construction, alteration or repair of a building, structure, electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system.

      (1)Permits are required for sheds and similar outbuildings.

      (2)Permits are required for the construction, enlargement, alteration, repair, or demolition of any dock or seawall.

      (3)Permits are required to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, and remove, electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system on a dock or seawall.

      (4)Permits are required to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, or demolish impact-resistant walls, coverings, or other similar fabrications on docks or seawalls (where allowed by the Land Development Code).

      (5)For proposed docks or seawalls to be located at the dead end of a canal or where lot lines converge, the permit applicant shall provide proof of compliance with the maximum projection and location regulations in Section 1001.5 of the Land Development Code, in the form of a survey at the time of application, and again upon completion of construction.

      (b)Permits are not required for fences without concrete footers, soffit and fascia, painting, minor drywall repairs, kitchen remodels that do not involve electrical or plumbing, mailboxes, and the work identified as exempt from permits in section 105.2 of the Florida Building Code.
      (c)Failure to obtain a required permit prior to commencing, or allowing commencement of, any of these activities is a violation of this code. Engaging in, contracting for, encouraging, assisting, procuring, or performing work requiring a building permit without such permit is a violation of this code. Failing to obtain a building permit for work previously undertaken without a permit, when such permit was required is a violation of this code. This section also applies to persons who purchase or otherwise obtain land or a structure upon which there is an existing violation where work was performed without the required permit and who, after a warning, fail to obtain an "after-the-fact" permit to cure the violation or to demolish or restore the structure to its original condition in order to cure the violation.
    •  "After-the-fact" permits are not required for:  

      (1)Sheds under 250 square feet and aboveground pools, when these structures were erected prior to January 1, 1995; and

      (2)Any structure, work or condition for which a permit would have been required, when such structure, work or condition was completed prior to January 1, 1985.        (Ord. No. 07-20, § 1, 9-11-07; Ord. No. 19-13, § 3, 3-26-19)
