This item is coming for a public hearing at the Palmetto Bay regular council hearing this Monday, May 5, 2014, 7 PM. A public hearing is required so any interested person will have the opportunity to address their comments and concerns, pro or con.
Agenda Item 12B (scroll down to “B”)
includes changes to Ordinance 30-110. These proposed changes will allow stadium style lighting across all the residential districts of the village on outdoor athletic fields/recreational areas at religious facilities, private schools, child care facilities, and other non-governmental public assembly.
One reader commented (to a prior unrelated post) that:
I strongly recommend that all Palmetto Bay residents attend the upcoming Village Council meeting on Monday, May 5th at 7PM, where council will hold, one of two, up or down votes on allowing Palmer Trinity School, a change in the present village ordinance, to light all athletic fields. This new ordinance will allow PTS to install lights on all present and future athletic fields daily, to 10 and 11pm. In addition, email your Mayor and village council with your wishes on this important decision that many individuals believe will effect the quality of life and potential crime issues in your neighborhood, if passed. This is not a time to remain silent, your council should be made aware of your wishes for your neighborhood.Where do you stand?
