    Has anyone heard anything regarding the status of the building? It seems to me we should be hearing something?

    • PelicanMod

      Hello Eileen,

      To answer your question, although we have not been physically able to see the building as of yet, you can view the building status in our 9/30/22 post under the 'Updates from the Manager' section of this message board.

      Please remember, many homes and families were severely impacted by Hurricane Ian. Through this, we have a wonderful team of people set to help in this recovery process.

      According to the City of Sanibel in their 10/2/22 Facebook Live, the structural safety inspection team will be on the island to begin checks today. The team is set to begin checks to homes, businesses, and other property types on the East End of the island. More information will be gathered to understand what types of checks will be done and the software programs used for reporting. We should (hopefully) have additional updates regarding this tonight after the City of Sanibel's newest Facebook Live.

      Thank you for your patience.

    Eileen,

    If you watch the video I posted this morning in the Photos and Videos topic you can see our property pretty good from most angles. I know this does nothing to speak to the structural integrity but it hopefully gives some optimism to see we are still standing.

    In listening to the City Manager's briefing yesterday, it sounds like they will be allowing people on the island fairly soon for short amounts of time to assess damage. Will someone from staff or owner's group be going to assess & take photographs for each unit?
    The City Manager said that owner representatives would need a document proving they are actually representing owners. I am assuming that ample proof exists already without each of us getting a notarized document - is that the case?

      Hello Jean,

      To answer your question, you are correct in assuming ample proof of documentation for representing owners exists. Since you are already under management at Pelicans Roost with Best Hospitality Management, we will refer to them in the case of viewing the property on your behalf.

      While a representative of Best Hospitality Management and other members of our team are on-site at Pelicans Roost, they will open everything up, mitigate damage, and take still photos and drone footage to be shared on this online message board under the 'Photos & Video Footage' section. This plan of action can be found in our initial email communications.

      At this time, we are still waiting on confirmation as to when we can get on the island and view the property. As I assured Eileen, according to the City of Sanibel in their 10/2/22 Facebook Live, the structural safety inspection team will be on the island to begin checks today. The team is set to begin checks to homes, businesses, and other property types on the East End of the island. More information will be gathered to understand what types of checks will be done and the software programs used for reporting. We should (hopefully) have additional updates regarding this tonight after the City of Sanibel's newest Facebook Live.

      Thank you for your concern.

    Hello all!

    I might have missed some communication, but does anyone know the boundaries of the quadrants that will be open individually to access Pelicans when the structure hopefully passes inspection?

    I cannot make it myself and am sending a trusted handiman to access the mold damage of contents, etc. He can only spare a couple of days and the sooner I know which days the better, as far as less mold and scheduling flights, etc.

    Starting inspections from the East of Sanibel, hopefully they get to us soon!

    In a hurry, my apology to any English teachers reading this.

      Hello Ginger,

      Thank you for your patience. I thought it would be best to wait to provide the most recent updates as your comment was sent in just before the City of Sanibel held their meeting.

      Thank you also for sending your permissions to our team to inspect your unit! We hope to come away with good news once we see Pelicans Roost tomorrow.

  • Robert Webster

    Would it be possible to have a zoom or conference call with all of the owners and the team going out to the property after the visit tomorrow?

  • PelicanMod

    Hello Robert,

    Thank you for your concern. We have recently answered this question in our newest post located under 'Updates from the Manager.' I am including important details from that message here, as well.

    As you all know, we will be arriving on Sanibel Island tomorrow morning via boat and will be there for the entirety of the day. Communications are very, very bad anywhere West of I-75 with NO communications available on the island. Katrina and the staff currently congregate in a warehouse near the airport grid in order to complete work. SWFL is a major disaster zone.

    For these reasons, we will not be able to provide updates on the status of Pelicans Roost tomorrow during the day. All staff visiting the island will be without phone and internet access from approximately 6 AM – 7 PM.

    Once again, we are getting together the following categories of communication to be addressed from short-term, mid-term, and long-term perspectives:

    1. Damage Assessment
    2. Financial Assessment
    3. Insurance Assessment
    4. City, County, State, and Federal Information Assessment

    From these assessments, scenarios will evolve. Once those are developed, a meeting will be formed for all the owners. An agenda will go out ahead of time to review what we know and present a plan of action. Everyone will be briefed before we hold our meeting.

    After we return, our findings gathered tomorrow will be uploaded to the Online Message Board as early as possible.

    Thank you, again, for your patience.

    We are wondering what the status is regarding things happening at Pelicans Roost. Any updates?

    I'm wondering what the recommendation is regarding our LCEC electric service. We just received a bill just for being an LCEC customer. Not billed for usage (because there was none), but for the connectivity (which there isn't any at this time).

    This is what it states on the bill " Customers who are still without power and no longer wish to be
    billed, please contact us to disconnect service." What is the overall recommendation?
