Windjammer Village is a resident-owned cooperative with 212 lots. There are 211 homeowners who own a share in Windjammer and 1 non-shareholder.
All the lots have homes on them. Windjammer Village is a “55 and Older Community” and one resident in each home must be 55 years of age or older.
Windjammer Village is governed by a nine person Board of Directors. The Directors are elected by the shareholders at an annual meeting, with three directors elected each year. The Board of Directors normally meet once a month and all shareholders are permitted to attend the Board Meetings. Shareholders of Windjammer pay a monthly fee, and those who do not own a share pay a monthly fee.
These fees and rents pay for the use of the Windjammer facilities and also for lawn mowing and trimming. The monthly fee, also pays for garbage and waste pick up for renters while shareholders pay for garbage and waste pick up through their real estate taxes. All utilities such as water and sewer, telephone, electricity and cable TV are paid for by the individual homeowners. People wishing to move into Windjammer, whether as a shareholder or a renter, must meet with a committee of the Board of Directors and must agree to abide by the Windjammer Rules and Regulations.

It has been almost a full 12 months since Hurricane Irma blew into Naples spreading damage everywhere including Windjammer Village. Irma arrived on September 10, 2017.
The BOD addressed various options to encourage Shareholders to repair their property and help maintain property values. Ultimately the following motion was approved at the January 25, 2018 Board of Directors (BOD) meeting.
“On or before the one year anniversary date of a major Catastrophe (i.e., hurricane, flood, etc.) the shareholder/homeowner of a unit shall submit a letter of intent to the Paint and Home Committee regarding plans for restoration or repairs of the unit along with applicable requirements of Collier County. The intent to include; restoration of the unit without any changes in the “appurtenances” of the unit nor substantially alter its outward appearance. The shareholder/owner shall have all restoration completed within two years of the date of the catastrophe. In the event the committee is not satisfied the letter shall be referred to the Board of Directors.”
Many properties have been repaired and currently several are under construction. But there is still a lot of properties that need work done. Attached is the form to submit to Paint & Home Improvement. This form is also available on the Windjammer website “windjammervillage.org”
If you have not completed needed construction on your property or have not submitted the letter of intent to the BOD, please submit your letter of intent to “Windjammer Village, 220 Oceans Blvd, Naples, FL 34104” by the September 10, 2018 deadline.
These are some of the documents that may be submitted supporting your efforts to meet the September 10th date: letter of commitment from contractor, copy of dated contract to perform repairs, copy of Building Permit from Collier County or other communication supporting your efforts to repair your property. If none of the latter are submitted by the September 10, 2018 deadline, Shareholders may be fined.
