Beach Beautification.

Donor Arch - $1,250.00

Julie Morgan will be here next month to discuss the disposition of the old sign. There will be a vote in July.  Mr. Simms is currently holding the old signs in storage.  There will be a meeting with Commissioners to discuss the new slogan vs the old slogan. Also, there will be a vote on the issue of whether to preserve the old sign.

Abandon House, 7513 Gulf Blvd (Turner House) – Randy James with the county states the house is structural sound and in compliance.  Roy Andrews, County Attorney, states the house is currently in compliance under the current verbiage. House is structurally sound.  We would have to hire an attorney to change the compliance wording.

County is waiting for available funds, possibly BP money before doing any beautification, i.e. Restrooms, Fountains (Humans and animal), Palm trees.

Hotel is open. Grand opening was held from 11-4 on Saturday.

Fee Simple - Bill working its way through the House.  The Senate might be a problem.  A request was made to all permanent residents who have Senators on the Senate’s Energy and Natural Resources Subcommittee submit emails requesting their support of the bill.

 

Food Vendor – Peter Birckhead requested members to submit emails calling for the enforcement of current code in regards to Food Truck Vendors request for variances.  Terri Masters, SnoCone Vendor asked the members to consider her variance favorably.  She states the parking issue is not an issue for her business based on the fact that most of her business is foot traffic.  She states it provides a “family atmosphere” and no alcohol is served on her premises.  She states her business is easily movable should the necessity arise during a storm.   Some neighbors agree that she does have mostly foot traffic.  Kevin Rudzki of Juana’s stated that everyone should have to abide by the county codes. We are trying to provide the kind of “World Class” establishments as the new hotel.  Variances open the door to business like the food vendors in the ReMax parking lot.  Parking issues are just a minor infraction.  There are port-a-potties and all of those pallets in the parking lot will be a hazard for residents during future storms. Make the county enforce the current code. No variances.  Commissioners to vote on Thursday, June 22.

Tunes on Dunes – Peter Birckhead asked to vote on sponsoring the August 17 date by the NBLRA.  So far the Welcoming Committee has brought in 10 new members.  He believes this event could bring in several more. He asked for $600 for the tent and sign for the table. At the event, 50/50 tickets will be sold and membership for NBLRA would be promoted. Members voted Yes to sponsor event.

2018 Elections – 3 members have been nominated to solicit for Board positions. PJ Julian, Courtland Gray and Tim Eckard – Chairman.  Please contact these members if you wish to run for the 2018 board.

General Discussion – Peter Birckhead opened the floor to members.  A request was made to send a Thank You note to Dune Doctor for Donating and Planting 1500 sea oats at the walkover by the Pier Bar, in conjunction with the Marine Science Center.  Dune Doctor – Brad Newman & Frederique Beroset.

Caribbean Island HOA stated they are aware the pond is overgrown. Members complained of snakes and bugs and requested the pond be cleaned up. HOA is on it.

John Lewis with the Fire Department wanted to remind all members that this might be an expensive year for the budget. There are negotiations with the union in September, repairs need to be made to the building, training (Fire & Medical), and they are still discussing whether they can get another year out of the ladder truck or if it is time for the replacement ($700k).

Members were asked to email their commissioner regarding plans for infrastructure now that the property across from the new hotel is under contract. Port Navarre is planning on four – 16 story high rise condominiums along with shops, dining and a marina.  We want to be sure the county has some plan in place for additional traffic.

 This concluded the meeting which was adjourned at 10:45 a.m.

 

Respectively Submitted by,

Katie DeCoste
