    From: Laurie D.

    Subject: Munyon's Cove 

    THANK YOU Sara M. for your message about Lozman's Cove. It is very upsetting to see what Fane Lozman is doing to Singer Island beautiful water way.  Looks terrible, especially the signs, security camera's. buoy's, plastic chairs, picnic tables, torch's, etc.  People coming down to Singer Island for the season or vacation must be wondering what the h... is going on there.  How he got OK'ed for purchasing the property's and doing what he is doing to it is astounding!!  He doesn't even have respect for Riviera Beach/Singer Island.  Why is he here?  Just to be a thorn in our side, I guess.  Just a very concerned resident sharing what others are all saying.  No one is happy about it, believe me. Thank you, LD


    From: Jack F.

    Subject: Munyon's Cove 

    I am intrigued after reading the updated Palm Beach Post article (September 3, 2014) concerning the Lozman and Taylor properties. I know that the Florida DEP is not protecting our lands, whether dry or submerged, allowing the building during the 2004 through 2009 seasons. Wetlands and native habitat was destroyed to build condos. Beach erosion was not taken fully into account. Now the department has signed off on putting extensive docks into our waterways, although be it on submerged private property. The Pine Point owners could not trim the mangroves to give them a view of the cove, but Mr Lozman seems to have been given free reign to clear out portions of his shoreline.


    Munyon's Cove, on the western shore of Singer Island is shallow, full of sea grasses, endangered and non-endangered wildlife. If, Mr Lozman and Mr Taylor were to be allowed to use their water covered properties for floating homes, I have a few questions and concerns. How deep is Munyon's Cove at normal and extreme low tides? What would the draft be for these floating homes? How would there homes be anchored in place? During storms and heavy wave action, will the bottoms of the boats be disrupting and disturbing the bottom of the cove? Would these homes remain at this location if we were to get hurricane watches and warnings? Will there be any governmental guidance as to acceptable limitations of these homes? Where will the owners/visitors park? What about fresh water? What about waste water and sewage removal? What about electric service and safety? Will the property owner be liable for any cleanup necessary caused by the floating homes or their respective owners? With this in mind, do we really want to add another community to our island?


    From Capt Lori in Palm Beach Isles

    Subject: Capt Jack's Island Grill, a new fast casual eatery coming SOON Singer Island.
