HOLLYWOOD – A special
magistrate has fined the Renaissance on the Ocean condo
association $15,000 for not maintaining a public pathway.
The path parallels the
beach and is located behind the Renaissance on North Beach
The public pathway is supposed to be maintained by the condo
association as required by an agreement with the city.
The path also is supposed to have crushed shell on the
surface to make it hard enough for bike riders to use.
Instead, most of the pathway is soft sand.
The association was issued a violation and has 30 days to
place the crushed shell on the path or face more fines.
The association closed the path for six months citing safety
issues and they face fines for that as well. The pathway
reopened on May 31.
