Message From Judi O'Connor, Chairman:

Hello, my name is Judi O’Connor, and I look forward to serving as your new CDD Chairman. Our new Board consists of Charlie Weidner - Vice Chairman, Barbara Gard, Gerald Barkholz, Duane Swetland and me.We are all very anxious to work for you and our community.

Below for your information is an update on projects presently being worked on by your Board of Supervisors.

GATES:Dates for the new gate system have been delayed.Installation will now begin December 31 and finished January 11. The contractor has informed us that they are back-logged and have had to move their schedule forward. As a reminder, the gate changes will be new gate arms to stop and slow down traffic. They will be in addition to the full gates that we already have. Also, we are adding new digital cameras to improve our surveyance and visitor tracking.

STORM DRAINS:We have had the storm drains inspected and some of the drains will need some work. We are currently developing a priority list and will have a report at our January or February Supervisors meeting.

STREET LIGHTS:We have been notified that a few street lights are out. Normally we wait, to save expenses, until three lights are out so our electrician has been notified and we can expect the lights to be fixed shortly.

PIER:As you may be aware, many of the cap boards on the hand rail were stolen. We have contacted the contractor and we expect the rail fixed shortly. In the meantime, please be cautious of splinters on some parts of the railing.Also, If you see something …. please say something.Call the police if you see misconduct on the pier.

MANGROVES:Suncoast will be here on December 20th or 21st to do the annual trimming.
