New City Hall Complex Coming

The agenda for the upcoming city council meeting on 9/13 indicates that the city staff is recommending hirng an architectural firm in WPB, Song & Associates, "for professional planning & architectural services associated with the development of City of Boca Raton's Government Campus Master Plan."  This will be considered as resolution #119-2016 at this meeting which starts at 6pm.

It appears that the city leaders have already decided how they are going to spend the $40+ million the city will receive from selling the current municipal golf course on Glades Rd.  Is this what the voters of Boca Raton want from their local government leaders, that is, selling recreational facilities in exchange for a larger government complex?

Local Election Endorsements

Boca Teeca residents encourage all Boca Raton voters to support Earl Starkoff & Dennis Frisch for re-election as commissioners to the Greater Boca Raton Beach & Park District.  These commissioners have done an excellent job of building and maintaining the beaches and parks with our community and they should be re-elected based upon their commitment to continue working with the residents to meet their recreational needs in our growing city.

We also encourage voters to support the referendum on the waterfront properties which will provide more assurances of open space and access to the limited waterfront areas that are owned by our municipal government.  This referendum was put on the ballot thanks to the efforts of many residents who were not pleased with the direction the city leadership was taking on the former Wildflower property.  The entire city should support this referendum as an effort to show cooperation of all residents in the improvement of the residential character of our community.
