This Labor Day weekend brought hurricane prep but fortunately for us Dorian remains of the Atlantic side of the Florida peninsula. Folks in the Bahamas will need support as they begin recovery efforts. Hopefully, Dorian will continue to move up – and out – away from the east coast.
The City Commission meets tonight. Find the Agenda here: http://safetyharbor.granicus.com/GeneratedAgendaViewer.php?view_id=6&event_id=1676
There will be public hearing regarding the Millage Rate and tentative 2019-2020 Budget, the 2020 Municipal Election and Qualifying Period (did you know the qualifying period is one week?) and the code amendment to establish locational requirements for recording devices placed on poles on residential property.
New Business includes a request for a Downtown Partnership Grant for 509 Main Street, amendments to the land development code, a draft ordinance requiring backflow protection for breweries and the first reading of Draft Ordinance 2019-16 which would “amend the Land Development Code to establish exemptions to the 35 foot/3 stories height requirement and establish a height incentive in portions of the Community Redevelopment District.”
Please see the City Commission Agenda for more information – and see the calendar below for more Harbor Happenings this week.
