Ninety-three percent of the developed parcels are developed as single-family residential (Photo 4a). The 344 single-family residential parcels occupy nearly 88 acres of the island. Eleven parcels are listed as “condominium.” There are two condominium developments on the island (Photo 4b): Placida Beach Condos with 30 units and Hideaway Bay Condos with 102 units.

To estimate the number of developed parcels occupied permanently, we assumed that an owner with a post office box mailing address on Little Gasparilla Island or Placida resides on the island permanently. Under this assumption, there are 86 permanent households on the island, seven of which are condominiums. The balance of the available units (approximately 380) are occupied temporarily or seasonally.
Little Gasparilla Island is outside the Urban Service Area. There are no public lands or facilities on the island.

3.2 Analysis of Community Needs
The Little Gasparilla Community, through the LGI Advisory Committee and the community workshops held during the preparation of this plan, nearly unanimously expressed a desire to remain a low-density residential community, with only a minimal, strictly necessary public/commercial use to meet basic community needs.
