EP NOW AND THEN
Emerald Pointe is a deed-restricted, 55+ RV Resort located in Zephyrhills, Florida. Each property is deeded and individually owned. The Resort is managed by the Owners themselves, through the auspices of the Emerald Pointe Property Owners Association (EPPOA) Board of Directors and its various Committees.
In January of 1997, resort developer David Peterson formed a Florida Corporation and filed a Declaration of Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CC&Rs) for the Resort with Pasco County. He then began construction of what would become 304 individual lots. Emerald Pointe was developed over 6 phases, with the last lots being completed in October, 2005. In February of 2006, the Developer relinquished control of the properties to the Emerald Pointe Property Owners Association, a newly formed Florida corporation. As a deed-restricted, 55+ community, Florida State and HUD compliance requires that at least 80% of the occupied lots in the Resort have at least one occupant aged 55 years or older, whether Owner or Tenant.
The EPPOA is responsible for maintaining the Resort's common areas (buildings and grounds). The POA fee, currently $75.00 per month, provides funding for water service (both well and city water), sewer systems, trash collection, lawn and swimming pool maintenance. The low monthly fee has stayed the same for many years, due both to having Boards of Directors who have effectively managed the finances and other business of the Resort over the years and a strong culture of volunteerism. A source of great pride, as well as a significant cost savings, is the support and dedication of our Committees, Owners and Tenants, who willingly volunteer their time, energy and expertise to keep our Resort running and looking beautiful.
Originally primarily a Snowbird destination, approximately 15% of our lots are now occupied year-round. Emerald Pointe RV Resort is truly a place we are proud to call home, whether for part or all of the year!
