August 22 Ft. Pierce South Beach Association Newsletter

DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, WE WERE UNABLE TO SEND THIS NEWSLETTER BY EMAIL. As we told you in our last Newsletter, the First Reading of the Vendor Ordinance on August 4, 2014 was postponed to September 2, 2014 so that staff could revise the Ordinance with the changes recommended by the Commission by consensus. Those revisions include:

Mobile Food Vendors – Results of the Public Hearing First Reading on August 4

After much discussion, the Commission voted to postpone the First Hearing to September 2, 2014 because they reached consensus on a number of revisions to the Ordinance.  This will give Staff the time to incorporate those revisions.  These revisions include:

Mobile Food Vendors on South Beach

Yes, it really has been 10 months since we first notified you of the pending City Ordinance to allow Mobile Food Vendors (trucks and carts) on an all day, everyday basis at specific locations throughout the City including South Beach.

Annual Meeting – 2014 Preview

I will try to outline a number of issues that will be of interest and concern for many of us living and doing business on the beach during 2014.

Annual Meeting – Overview of 2013

FINALLY, the A1A and Jetty Park projects are completed!!  How many years were they the primary topic for our Annual meetings?  For the first time in four years, Tracy Telle isn’t speaking explaining why things have been delayed.  We have attempted to keep you informed over these years with monthly postings on the SBA website.  Recently, a reporter for a local magazine asked if I liked the completed A1A project and the new Jetty Park.  Really a silly question – and I responded with an equally silly answer, “What’s not to like!”  As we promised – it was worth waiting for.
