Presidents message July 2019

Thank you all for attending our June Meeting. While I was not present due to being out of town I understand we had a low turnout of about 19 people.  This is generally typical for this time of year due to school just being out and many members having their first chance for the summer time with the grandchildren and or early vacation departures ahead of the July 4 weekend.  Never the less I understand you had a good meeting and I thank Gary Buroker for running the proceedings in my absence. Please be sure to check out the minutes of our June meeting so you are up to date with all items relative to Navarre Beach and our county including my Beach Beautification Update.

Of note in the minutes and important enough to mention again here John Lewis, Chairman Navarre Beach Fire Rescue,  requested that the NBLRA support the referendum that Navarre Beach Fire Rescue become a Special Fire District.  John, his board and the Chief are working hard to get the word out to the voters for the special election scheduled for October 8th.  See more about this in Gary Buroker’s Legislative Update. Please be sure to get out and vote for this important issue.

Also concerning the October 8 election that was not discussed at the meeting but is very much on the radar of Gary Buroker, VP NBLRA and Chairman of our Legislative Committee, is a vote to approve an additional ½ cent increase in our local sales tax. See Gary’s Legislative Update and link below for more information.  The good news is if the sales tax increase is approved a Roundabout at the Gulf Blvd and Navarre Beach Causeway Intersection (Tom Thumb) and a multiuse path on White Sands are both listed as projects to be funded.

Another important item of note in the minutes is a brief update on the Turner House. As noted Terry Pierman has taken the lead to resolve this issue. While doing so I am still involved and Terry is working with Gary Buroker and me to develop a strategy for our day in front of the county commissioners on July 22 when the commissioners discuss changes on the Land Development Uses and Codes. Changes in these codes and regulations could allow us make a great deal more progress is getting the Turner House issue finally resolved. PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDER TO BE AT THE BOCC MEETING MONDAY, JULY 22. WE NEED ALL OF THE LEASESHOLDERS WE CAN GET TO SUPPORT TO EFFORTS ON THIS INPORTANT ISSUE.

I would like to thank Jerry Smith and Courtland Grey for stepping up in my absence and taking care of putting up the US Flags around the Navarre Beach Entrance Sign on 98 in observance of July 4. Thanks gentlemen.

As I have reported in the past we are still looking for someone to be our Community Liaison with various organizations in Navarre including the Chambers of Commerce. If you are interested in learning more please let me know. Thanks

In light of the low turnout for our June Meeting and not a great deal going on at this time relative to items affecting the island we have elected to cancel our July meeting and resume our  normal schedule with our August 17 meeting.

 

Thank you.
