Deed restriction After several months, the Committee on New Restrictions is scheduling all home owners to review them at “Town Hall Meetings”. The meetings are held on Monday evenings at 7:00 PM at the Restaurant. So far over half of the homeowners have been contacted. The responses have been very positive toward a vote to adopt them. You can attend sessions next month on 11/10/2014 and 11/24/2014. Other meetings will be scheduled in January 2015. A general consensus at the meetings exist to pursue a change in the name for the Homeowners Association to “ Country Club of Sebring versus POCA (Prairie Oaks Community Association). A special election to adopt the new restrictions will be held in March 2015.
