City of Riviera Beach Update
From: Dawn S. Pardo
District 4 | Council Chairwoman Pro-Tem
Tomorrow, June 21 from 7:00am to 1:00pm Riviera Beach will host a Triathlon/Duathlon. The Ocean Mall will be closed until 1:00pm. Cones will be set up along the bike path on A1A for the runners and our Police Officers will be stationed along A1A to assure residents can safely leave the Island.
On Wednesday evening, the City Council unanimously approved a 6 month coastal construction moratorium on for the entire Singer Island oceanfront. Though the city is not against construction on the Island, we need to assure it is done responsibly and not cause additional erosion problems. Over the next few months, Staff will look at our coastal construction codes and make recommendations to Council to possibly update them. Most of Singer Island's coastal codes were updated in the 1980s. Please consider this short period moratorium as a first step to a permanent solution for our coastal erosion problem.
Recently I met with the Mayor of The Town of Palm Beach and other concerned citizens and listened to concerns about a scrap metal facility that is being operated out of the Port of Palm Beach. I brought matter to the attention of our Council and we unanimously instructed Staff to look into the matter. The last thing we need is a hurricane or tornado blowing through and having the scrap metal act as shrapnel to adjacent properties or neighborhoods. Today, our City Manager wrote a cease and desist letter to the operator. According to our code, Scrap Metal is not allowed in the City
Lastly, our State delegation, Senator Jeff Clemens, Rep. Bill Hager, and Rep. Bobby Powell presented the Council with a check for $1,300,000. Gov. Scott appropriated the funds to the
City for storm water projects. Congratulations for our State representatives and my Council colleagues. We all spent a lot of time lobbying for the funds and once again hard work paid off!!
Please keep sending in your input to be shared here next week (with over 1180 of your neighbors) ...and your Singer Island Civic Association WILL stay on these issues!!
Subject: Noisy outdoor music from Marriott Vacation Club between Ocean Tree and Tiara
Have you had any other complaints about this? We have tried calling with limited success. The police have been called multiple times. These are outdoor, amped up loudspeakers. Isn't there a noise ordinance? Why isn't it being enforced?
From: Roseann G in Palm Beach Shores
Dear Singer Island Civic Association:
Being that my husband Tim is a Realtor with Illustrated Properties on Singer Island he forwarded me his email on SICA. We live in Palm Beach Shores and just love it and the area. I work for Village Maintenance a Property Management company in North Palm Beach that is owned by Illustrated Properties.
I am very impressed with your Newsletter and all the exciting projects that are taking place.
We certainly appreciate all that you are doing to clean up the Island especially all the empty buildings that have nothing but junk inside of them. It has been quite an embarrassment giving company the tour and seeing all the trash everywhere.
We have a concern regarding the tennis courts, kids are riding bikes and rollerblading on the courts. Also, we have seen them jumping and sitting on the nets and pulling at them so now the middle springs are broken to keep the nets at the right heights. We also find used prophylactics on the weekend when we arrive. Of course we all know there's nothing one can do about the stupidity of people - right!
I am going to forward your Newsletter to my neighbors and friends and get them on the List. Hopefully we will have the pleasure of meeting somewhere along the way.
Have a great weekend!!
All My Best,
Editors note (THANK YOU Roseann!): People are listening to our collective voice and action is taking place. SICA will stay on these issues; neighbors ...please join with us in helping move our our community forward in a positive direction!
