Jarvis Hall Enclosure/LBTS Orgs.

not much in the papers today that has not been previously posted …

2 topics of interest….

Jarvis Hall enclosure…

I have not met anybody who is on board with this left over project…

it is widely perceived that it was a deal to give the Performing Arts a venue along with an extension on a contract that was not even due to be addressed.

some input from the residents….

It can not possibly hold enough people….

it’s a patch job…piece meal planning…doing something without a long range plan….

it is only being done so town employees do not have to continue with the existing tasks of prepping Jarvis Hall for various uses on a daily basis…

Just because it is in the budget…does not mean it needs to be done…

sprinklers… this was never brought up by the Vice Mayor before….

The Vice Mayor and Commissioner Silverstone were not for this when the previous Commission wanted it….why now?

How will they do power point presentations in a glass room?

We are going to spend $1.9 million for a public safety building?

BCbythesea opinion…..dump this quick!

Organizations in LBTS need re-defining….

South Beach Civic Organization….

with the De-annex rumblings from their last Town Hall meeting…to the Editor of the Futures and the division he wrote about in the last edition of the paper…. east side vs. west side of A1A for free beach access… inflated ideas of what the excess revenue was going kaput….

does that organization really represent the north side of town or just a chosen few …political Old Guard and friends of, Editors of Futures paper, elitist east side condo owners and private beach club access west side residents….

heard another Town Hall meeting is set for next month…should find some answers out then…. who will turn up and will voices be heard?

BCbythesea opinion….all should attend and work out their differences…be good neighbors….

Unite Our Town….

was this short lived?…..missing in action…..

BCbythesea opinion…. might return in time for another election…

CIC…

4 present commissioners are members…. a recent vote of the membership put in the bylaws… new rules that a sitting commissioner may not sit on the board…..

the original intent was that of a civic organization that promoted initiatives through action…petitions…referendums….

watchdogs…

Will it retain this stance going forth?….

Will it become a PAC (political action committee)?….

backing up those elected and working towards putting other like-minded candidates in office?

This will be a year when the newly expanded board will need to decide….(a vote to expand the board from 7- 9…also passed.)

if the board decides a change should be entertained….

it will be followed up by yet another vote by the full membership….

the result of this vote to either remain the current watchdog civic initiative committee…

or morph into a political action committee…

will definitely effect the future membership ….that will continue to grow even larger or stall…..

BCbythesea opinion….depends on who sits on the full board… how many members remain active in the organization while having the majority on the dais…. all unknown due to the present political situation being unprecedented…

Time will tell on all fronts….
