Welcome to the Botany Bayou Community site!

Please consider!

We hope you consider becoming a part of the board for 2023 and beyond!  Details of what these positions entail, plus more information on volunteer opportunities are included in the email which was sent on October 21st.  Please help us keep our neighborhood highly desirable and our dues as low as possible!  

Electronic Mail Notification

Dear Neighbors,

The Botany Bayou Homeowners Association Board of Directors has been advised by our attorneys that per Florida 720 law, owners who would like to receive electronic notification must sign a consent form and that form must be kept on file. The Board wishes to continue to utilize electronic notification as the primary method to communicate with our owners.

 We have attached the consent form for each owner to review and sign which will allow the owner to consent or “opt in” to electronic notifications from the Board of Directors.  Only one signature will be required per lot and the signature must be one of the names on the warranty deed. Please download the form and either drop it in our mailbox at 33 Botany Blvd. or email it back to our secretary at [email protected]

The Board of Directors is encouraging each of you to sign the consent form to receive electronic notifications to further improve our neighborhood and the communication of association notifications to each member.   If you have any questions regarding this letter, please contact one of the Board members.
