Two Important Meetings This Week

Planning & Zoning Meeting on Tuesday, July 28, 2015

The large number of residents concerned about the proposed development at the intersection of Nela and Seminole will want to know that the Belle Isle Planning & Zoning Board will address this issue at the coming meeting this Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall. The developer of this property is requesting permission to build a six-home gated and walled subdivision to be constructed on the two existing lakefront lots that have been vacant since 2011. All residents are invited to speak about this issue, including those who live, drive, bike, or walk near that intersection.

A complete set of plans and drawings is attached to the meeting agenda linked below. It appears as though the developer is set to move forward with this project. If you have opinions that you want considered, take this opportunity to make your voice heard and meet like-minded neighbors!

Special Workshop Meeting on Wednesday July 29, 2015

Following the Planning & Zoning meeting on Tuesday evening, our City Council meets this Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. for a special workshop session. Because it is noticed as a "special" workshop session, residents will be given an opportunity to speak and the Council will have the power to vote on pending issues, just as at a regular Tuesday evening Council meeting.

The agenda, linked below, promises discussions about several important topics. One of these important topics is the City Budget, including both City spending priorities and revenues. This will be the last chance for the Council to propose an increase in ad valorem tax to pay for necessary infrastructure repairs and improvements. If the Council proposes such a tax increase at the upcoming meeting, it can remain on the table for Council discussion and resident input at future meetings. If not, the possibility of an ad valorem increase will be foreclosed until the next fiscal year.
