community involvement

Some time ago there were two meetings at the Leisure Services aka Recreational Dept. about what we the people of Lake Worth envision for the ShuffleBoard Courts.  This was mine.  I didn’t realize at the time that it was merely a discussion but they wanted to know and I’m a visual person, so I brought what I thought might work to the first meeting, my layout.This is not to scale.  There actually is far more room than this map allowed for in terms of green space.   I drew 16 shuffle board courts in and the vote was to maintaining 14 so that in the future regional competitions could be held.  Since then, the City of Lake Worth was offered a Labyrinth, as you see I put one in also.   With the offer of the Labyrinth and the $62,000 that is available to redo this area, looks like a very good start. I must mention I am anti fence, but do encourage decorative  (commission an artist) gateways to indicated entrances without borders.  Note the hedges that already exist.  Half and half on this vote with strong for, by the Leisure Services major part of this price tag is for fencing. Tape Recorder needed to document this meeting.The other community affair is a road trip.   If like everyone here in Lake Worth you cringe at the arrival of that blue envelope there may be help.  A bus trip is being arranged so that our voices will be heard, to Orlando on the 19th a mere $25  my bill starts at 45  and thats before any service.  Who ever heard of such a thing.  Read “What When Where and WHY?” on the blog Prosperity & Achievement.   Sign up for the trip. 

One more chance to be heard attend the  Community Development Block Grant Program Public meeting  This is a grant for over $150 thousand that is designated for a specific area of Lake Worth and must be used start to finish in an 18 mo. period.  What is your idea?
