Been a busy couple of weeks for me. The semester is starting to come to a close, which unfortunately means a lot of exams and essays.
A couple of upcoming events:
Tonight (April 14) at Blanche Dog Park (Located at Shipping Ave and Virginia Street), Commissioner Joe Sanchez will be having an informal meet and greet from 6-8pm. He and I will just be walking around and talking about issues, so if you are there, please come up and introduce yourself.
Tomorrow (April 15) is the monthly Village of Center Grove (Homeowner's Association) meeting at the Coconut Grove Sailing Club (2990 S. Bayshore Drive).
Thursday (April 16) is the Coconut Grove Village Council meeting at City Hall. If you cannot make that meeting, it is televised on Channel 77, and also streamed online at http://videos.miamigov.com. Some items on the agenda include: A sidewalk on McDonald Street (which I think is an excellent idea), the upcoming Film Festival, Coconut Grove Relay for Life, and an update on the Florida Power and Light Committee. The FPL Committee is headed by Harlene Kennedy and is trying to prevent high voltage, above-ground lines from being installed in the Grove. An ideal situation for our safety during a hurricane would be for FPL to install the cables underground.
Next Monday (April 20), is the Homeowners and Tenants Association Meeting for the West Grove, at 7pm in the Frankie Rolle Center located at 3750 S. Dixie Hwy. I haven't gotten a copy of their agenda yet, but will post more information when I receive it.
As always, I'd love to hear from you so please shoot me an email or give me a call.
