The best news today is that the recommendation by the advisory committee on school rezoning left Royal Harbor Schools alone. So our kids will attend Naples City Schools if passed as recommended. Phew!!! This is good for our children and property values.
This is the first notice of the Royal Harbor Annual Meeting. It will take place on January 10 at the Naples Bay Resort. (the cottages) at 7:00 PM. We will have several of City council members stop by so a chance to politic your favorite issue. Please mark your calendar now.
I promise this will not be a long agenda that night so hopefully there will be time for lots of questions and answers and overall saying hi to your neighbors.
If you have been following the airport issues, you see the extension of the runways and the noise issues are very up front at City council. As I pointed out earlier, the council, public and the City have no legal say in these matters, but by rounding up a large number of citizens and packing city hall, this issue has made the newspaper, local TV and on to most computers in the area. See how public outcry can change reality and perception? This is why it is important that we all participate when issues affecting our neighborhood arise.
Driving around at night I see quite a few homes and yards already decorated for Christmas and the Holiday Season. Only 2 more weeks to go until the judging so please lets get out those old lights and decorations and get them up. Our hope is to have the most festive looking community in the city.
Across the street from me, on Sandpiper, on Saturday night one of the residents got up at 3 am to take his dog out. (it was sick) He surprised 3 dark skinned men, about 6 feet tall, thin, wearing dark clothing trying to break into the house next door. He hollered at them, the dog took off after them and police were called but no one was apprehended. (be vigilant)
Please send in your renewal application. We have about 1/2 of them now.
