BoyntonBeach.com City Renewal Proposal – Mission Statement
We are a group of individuals who want to see Boynton Beach, Florida flourish.
We want the world to see what we see in Boynton Beach’s potential, a community that is a gateway to the Gulfstream, with a near perfect climate and warm oceans that is open [...]
Despite the efforts of many local listeners WXEL was sold to Classical South Florida (CSF) and was renamed WPBI after the station’s purchase in May 2011.
Until last Wed. (9/14) the format which we had grown to enjoy; a mix of classical music, local and national news, locally produced programs about the arts, culture, financial matters [...]
WXEL community members put up a first rate effort to keep WXEL local at the Board of Education meeting in Miami December 17. About a dozen people from the WXEL community spoke at the meeting, urging the Board to deny the transfer because Classical South Florida is local in name only.
All arguments fell on deaf ears. [...]
Announcement was made at this evening’s City Commission meeting. Marlene Ross seeks reelection to represent District 4; Woodrow Hay seeks reelection to represent District 2. Both currently serve as members of the Boynton Beach Community Redevelopment Agency. They have served during Boynton Beach’s best of financial times.
Hate to sound like Charles Dickens here, but these [...]
Our CRA District is about one-third of our entire City. Information about our CRA should be readily available to us, the taxpayers of Boynton Beach. Why are the taxpayers not allowed to get the back-up information to the items on the CRA Board meetings agenda without CALLING the CRA office. Some of our taxpayers may not find it convenient [...]
Just got the good word….The budget is available for viewing online via www.boynton-beach.org
Look at it and think of yourself as the business owner of Boynton Beach. More money is going OUT than is coming IN.
Yes, these are difficult times and we have to navigate them with care and good intention.
All ideas given with that thoughtfulness [...]
Subject: Unable to access 2010-2011 Proposed Budget online
Hello City Manager Kurt Bressner
On www.boynton-beach.org it states:

After a presentation of the ongoing improvements to the Marina, Mayor Rodriquez conducted a very fruitful meeting wherein the boat slip tenants “wish list” was discussed.
At the top of the list was parking. Especially annoying to boat owners is that at 8 a.m. on Saturdays public parking becomes restaurant employee parking rather than the intended customer [...]

Do we ever tell the City Commissioner who represents us? Well I did this morning to the newly elected District 3 Commissioner Steven Holzman. Let me share it with you:
“Good Morning Commissioner Holzman,
Thank you for representing me, and our District 3, so well at last night’s City Commission meeting regarding the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. That our City [...]
Habitat for Humanity is ALREADY ACTIVE in the recovery…due to communication being knocked out, they have been unable to reach many of their staffbased in Port Au Prince – still gathering information on the status of the Habitat for Humanity homes, families, offices, etc. But, ARE AWARE that THOUSANDS will be in need of their [...]
We are all part of this city…men, women, young, old, black, white. You name it, we are here. Think of our community as a symphony. The music can be beautiful or it can be discordant; devoid of harmony and accord.
Think of ourselves as players of instruments as we hear the sounds in our minds which [...]
The matter was NOT discussed at the City Commission meeting on Tuesday night January 5, 2009
Commissioner Marlene Ross had a family emergency and had to leave the dais early, and she requested that the Old School be postponed until the next Commission meeting on January 19th. So we will have time between now and then [...]
Attended a 10am meeting at St. John Missionary Baptist Church 900 N. Seacrest Boulevard about education of black children. See http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/schools/black-leaders-call-for-palm-beach-county-school-161541.html
and a 5pm meeting at Fire Station 2 located at 2615 West Woolbright Road about Historic Resources. A part of this important issue is on TONIGHT’S City Commission meeting agenda.
I suggest that you go to [...]
Say that you are a Boynton Beach citizen who wants to be informed about what
is on the agenda for a Commission meeting. If you do not have a computer, you can go to City Hall
and there are copies in the lobby.
What recently occurred regarding the December 1, 2009 meeting was deceitful. Looking at the Agenda [...]
I want this to be the best blog for the residents of Boynton Beach. I will do the very best to keep them informed. I have no axe to grind…just want responsible government
Got back too late from California to attend the last Commission meeting. Checked the audio on line: http://www.boynton-beach.org/government/elected_officials/audio_recording_2009-12-01_commission_meeting.html
After reading the comments to [...]
Hear All About it!
A copy of the audio recording from November 17, 2009, City Commission meeting is now online at the City of Boynton Beach website.
The web page can be directly accessed here, and scroll down to Item III, under “Review presentations: Space needs of Police and/or City Hall”.
Last night the citizens of Boynton Beach witnessed classic money controlled representation. We are moving our central Police Department to a shopping center!
Of the four proposals, only the THE PATRINELY GROUP presented ideas for our southeastern district which are aligned with the redevelopment of our Downtown Master Plan, the City Commission’s approved plan.
THE PATRINELY GROUP is [...]
Let treat this as a story line for a play…..
