This month’s CDD meeting was held at 3pm on March 14 at the Back Bay Grill and concluded at 3:08pm – shortest meeting in POTCB history.  The reason for the brief meeting was a presentation from the mayor and staff and police chief.

The only items discussed in our meeting were:   1. We have reserved the gazebo and island for a wedding on Saturday, March 18 - the first event in our new gazebo.  2. Repairing pavement on Fiddler’s Bend where CDD pipe work was done.

Mayor Shirley Bryant introduced her staff talked mainly about the roundabout being constructed on 23rd Street and US 41, improvements in Palmetto, including the completion of new hotel and stoplight on #301, new police headquarters, redo of the Women’s Club, and the regatta.  Police Chief Tyler spoke to crime in Palmetto and specifically in our community.  The crimes in our community, according to the Chief, are mainly because residents are still not locking their cars.  Guns have been removed from unlocked cars, and cars have been stolen.  He asked the question, “Why would you leave a gun in your car?”  And moreover, “if you do leave a gun in the car, at least remove it from sight, and lock your car!”

The meeting was well attended, and questions were asked and answered regarding the roundabout, improvements on other roads – 10th street and 16th Ave.    The yearly visit from our mayor, who is also a resident in the Palms of Terra Ceia Bay, and her staff were well-received by our residents, and the session was very informative.  

Our next meeting will be on April 11 at 3pm at the clubhouse.  We hope to see you there. 

Judi O’Connor
