Parkland Chinese Drywall Task Force Established

Parkland Chinese DrywallParkland Chinese Drywall Update

On April 1, 2009, the Parkland City Commission met to discuss the Chinese Drywall issue with over 100 residents in attendance.  As a result, the city has organized a task force to research the problem further and provide a fact finding report to be presented to several government agencies.

The goal of this report is to determine how many Parkland homes have been affected by Chinese Drywall and then petition these findings to state and federal legislators to obtain assistance for the affected homeowners.

The City of Parkland has designated a page on their website to the Chines Drywall issue, so Parkland residents can stay updated.  Please click on the following hyperlink: Parkland Chinese Drywall .

The city is also asking affected homeowners to fill out an online survey in order to gather more information on particular neighborhoods and homes that have been affected.  Please click here for the online survey.

In order to complete the survey, Parkland residents must complete the following:

  • The name of your builder/developer.
  • The year your residence was built.
  • Information about whether any persons in your home may have had adverse health issues that you believe may have been caused by Chinese Drywall.
  • Whether you have contacted your builder, insurer and lender and what responses have been received.
  • The names of your lenders and insurers.
  • Whether you intend to vacate your residence.

The Parkland Building Division has also got involved with the task force and will provide records of homes that were constructed in Parkland from late 2003 to 2007 in order to help get better acquainted with which Parkland communities more likely have been affected by Chinese Drywall.

On a positive note, all Parkland city buildings and schools were not constructed with Chinese Drywall.  Residents can at least breath easier knowing that their families will not be exposed in any Parkland buildings.
