The owners of Jones Walker Apartments, Treetop Development, might have to finally make some changes.

The city’s code enforcement board is having a special meeting on Sept. 20, at 1 p.m. at Fort Myers City Hall.

Jones Walker Apts. Code Violation Hearing Set

Members will hear about the 45 code violations at Jones Walker that were initially issued on July 13, 2018.

Some of the violations include roach infestation, broken water pipes, and broken fire detectors.

As far as we know, the owners haven’t done anything to comply with the city’s requests.

The cost of the fine depends on the type of violation. And since there are so many, those fines will add up fast.

Treetop Development, which is based out of New Jersey, did not return our calls or emails seeking comment.

Given that Jones Walker Apartments are part of the low-income housing system, we also reached out to the regional office of Housing and Urban Development, to find out what agency will hold treetop accountable for the inhabitable living conditions. We have yet to hear back from HUD.
