City Council votes on Parking Ordinance

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Roger In 2012 the City of Apopka adopted a parking ordinance that severely restricted on-street parking. There were limited exceptions, most notably special occasions such as birthdays, graduation, holidays, or other special events.The Apopka City Council voted 5-0 yesterday to approve the First Reading of a new parking ordinance which will allow limited parking on neighborhood streets where there was none before. It was ultimately described as a compromise to free up parking options in older neighborhoods where it was difficult for residents with multiple cars to park legally.“We are not going to write an ordinance that’s going to meet the needs of every subdivision in Apopka,” said APD Chief Michael McKinley, who presented the ordinance to the City Council. “But we’ve gone from zero to opening up some parking spaces in the neighborhoods…and all neighborhoods are going to be different. Some will be more challenging. But this opens up some spots. Does it address everyone’s parking concerns? No, it does not. Is everyone happy? No, they are not. It does, however, allow citizens parking in places they currently cannot.”The ordinance is posted on the City’s website.   Use this link to download the ordinance. The rules in the proposed ordinance parallel those establish by the Florida Statues.  Use this link to look at those regulations.Under the ordinance, on-street parking would be allowed but would be regulated.  Some of those regulations would be:An unobstructed width of 12 feet must be left for the free passage of other vehicles.All parking must be with 12 inches of the edge of the pavement.No parking on a curve if it obstructs the regular flow of traffic or disrupts the sight picture along the roadway.No parking within 15 feet of a mailbox, except at night or days when mail is not delivered.  You will be allowed to park in front of your own mailbox.No parking that interferes with refuse removal.No parking in any cul-de-sac.No parking in or within 30 feet of an intersection.No parking within 12 feet of a driveway or across from a driveway.No parking in opposition of the lane of travel (left wheels to curb is prohibited).No parking within 15 feet of a fire hydrant.Parking on the street will be allowed only when parking in a driveway is not practicable.It also contains a provision that would allow individual Home Owners Associations to ban on-street parking in their neighborhood.Despite the challenge, McKinley was appreciative for the time and effort put in by the committee.“I want to thank the committee for taking time out of their busy schedules to complete this task,” he said. “I believe they did a great job in creating an ordinance that freed-up some of the parking while realizing it could not make everyone happy. They took their role seriously. They listened to the public, and they met their intended goals.”The members of the committee were:Jackie Sandler – Pines of WekivaDan Burrington – Piedmont LakesSteve Coleman – Lake Todd EstatesGudrun “Goddy” Davis – Errol EstateMisha Corbett – Dream Lake EstatesMike Files – Rock Springs RidgeMarvin Guttman – Rock Springs RidgeThe Second Reading of the proposed Parking ordinance is scheduled to occur at the next City Council meeting on March 1, 2017. Should it be adobted at the March 1st meeting the new ordinance will take effect immediately.

DeSantis lifts state restrictions on youth activities to let ‘kids be…

John Raoux / AP Please enter your name here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your comment! Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday lifted all state restrictions on youth activities effective immediately, allowing local governments and parents to decide whether children can resume playing organized sports and attend summer camps.“I hope that this will be good for folks over the summer. I really trust parents. I trust the physicians who work with the kids, the local leaders, coaches, camps,” DeSantis said. “We trust parents to be able to make decisions” and determine whether they can resume “these activities in a way that is safe.”DeSantis said he’d lift the April 1 order suspending youth activities with little state guidance, noting, “We are not going to be instituting a lot of rules or really any rules.”He said the Florida Department of Health (DOH) will post “best practices,” likely including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s standard social distancing protocols.DeSantis said local governments still can impose their own conditions on youth sports, activities and summer camps, even if they sustain the ban.“I’m not pre-empting (local governments) from being able to do anything,” said DeSantis said, who also said county and city leaders should prioritize ways to say “yes” to getting children out of homes and into activities.“I just think that I’ve seen other jurisdictions, other states, do like 100 rules for, like, how to pick up a tennis ball,” he said. “When you do that and you overcook it, you end up getting less compliance because people just throw up their hands and say, ‘This is ridiculous.’ ”DeSantis said with children essentially housebound since schools were shut down in March, they’ve had little social engagement and few opportunities to exercise and play.That is not healthy for children, said the governor, a 41-year-old father of three, including a girl born in March. They are the first preschoolers to live in the Governor’s Mansion since 1971.Dr. Bonnie White, a Ponte Vedra Beach pediatrician who is the primary physician for DeSantis’ children, encouraged parents to allow their kids to go outside and play with other kids, saying she and other pediatricians have seen increased anxiety among youngsters, which she attributed to being forced to stay indoors.“It’s time for our kids to get back to their new normal, and it’s time to let kids be kids,” she said.White said parents should “set an example” by following social distancing and safety protocols and ensuring children are current on immunization schedules.“With this big fear, lots of patients have decided not to come into the office, so lots of kids are getting behind on their vaccines,” she said. ”We’re fearful that measles is going to come back.”DeSantis cited statistics that indicate children are not as vulnerable to COVID-19 as those over age 65 and older or those who have compromising medical conditions.“We, in the state of Florida, have observed zero fatalities under the age of 25,” he said. “I think the data is pretty clear: kids don’t seem to get infected at the same rates that adults get infected.”While the disease may not affect children the way it does others, children can be contagious and spread it to those most vulnerable.“I think it was pretty clear that kids were less likely to suffer serious clinical outcomes from this than elderly were. It really wasn’t known what roll kids would play,” DeSantis said.The governor said maintaining CDC and DOH guidelines in protecting those most vulnerable is the key to getting children out of the house and the state’s economy off the mat.

On this day in history: The United States declares its independence

first_imgThe American War for Independence would last for five more years. Yet to come were the Patriot triumphs at Saratoga, the bitter winter at Valley Forge, the intervention of the French, and the final victory at Yorktown in 1781. In 1783, with the signing of the Treaty of Paris with Britain, the United States formally became a free and independent nation. The Anatomy of Fear      With the other colonies watching intently, Massachusetts led the resistance to the British, forming a shadow revolutionary government and establishing militias to resist the increasing British military presence across the colony. In April 1775, Thomas Gage, the British governor of Massachusetts, ordered British troops to march to Concord, Massachusetts, where a Patriot arsenal was known to be located. On April 19, 1775, the British regulars encountered a group of American militiamen at Lexington, and the first shots of the American Revolution were fired.

The dramatic words of this resolution were added to the closing of the Declaration of Independence. Two days later, on July 4, the declaration was formally adopted by 12 colonies after minor revision. New York approved it on July 19. On August 2, the declaration was signed. Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11      The Declaration of Independence was largely the work of Virginian Thomas Jefferson. In justifying American independence, Jefferson drew generously from the political philosophy of John Locke, an advocate of natural rights, and from the work of other English theorists. The first section features the famous lines, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The second part presents a long list of grievances that provided the rationale for rebellion.      In January 1776, Thomas Paine published Common Sense, an influential political pamphlet that convincingly argued for American independence and sold more than 500,000 copies in a few months. In the spring of 1776, support for independence swept the colonies, the Continental Congress called for states to form their own governments, and a five-man committee was assigned to draft a declaration.      Initially, both the Americans and the British saw the conflict as a kind of civil war within the British Empire: To King George III it was a colonial rebellion, and to the Americans, it was a struggle for their rights as British citizens. However, Parliament remained unwilling to negotiate with the American rebels and instead purchased German mercenaries to help the British army crush the rebellion. In response to Britain’s continued opposition to reform, the Continental Congress began to pass measures abolishing British authority in the colonies.      Most colonists continued to quietly accept British rule until Parliament’s enactment of the Tea Act in 1773, a bill designed to save the faltering East India Company by greatly lowering its tea tax and granting it a monopoly on the American tea trade. The low tax allowed the East India Company to undercut even tea smuggled into America by Dutch traders, and many colonists viewed the act as another example of taxation tyranny. In response, militant Patriots in Massachusetts organized the “Boston Tea Party,” which saw British tea valued at some 18,000 pounds dumped into Boston Harbor. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply      In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Continental Congress adopts the Declaration of Independence, which proclaims the independence of the United States of America from Great Britain and its king. The declaration came 442 days after the first volleys of the American Revolution were fired at Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts and marked an ideological expansion of the conflict that would eventually encourage France’s intervention on behalf of the Patriots.      The first major American opposition to British policy came in 1765 after Parliament passed the Stamp Act, a taxation measure to raise revenues for a standing British army in America. Under the banner of “no taxation without representation,” colonists convened the Stamp Act Congress in October 1765 to vocalize their opposition to the tax. With its enactment in November, most colonists called for a boycott of British goods, and some organized attacks on the customhouses and homes of tax collectors. After months of protest in the colonies, Parliament voted to repeal the Stamp Act in March 1766.

The Coercive Acts closed Boston to merchant shipping, established formal British military rule in Massachusetts, made British officials immune to criminal prosecution in America, and required colonists to quarter British troops. The colonists subsequently called the first Continental Congress to consider a united American resistance to the British.last_img read more

In the past year it had doubled the number of corporate supporters and created new income streams such as its online certificate in fundraising.A decision on staffing levels is expected in early June.

The Institute of Fundraising has begun consulting with staff over how it can respond to cuts in its budget. Current plans involve a net loss of four full-time positions at the professional body for fundraisers in the UK.The Institute faces two financial challenges in particular. First, its annual grant from the Cabinet Office’s Office for Civil Society has been tapering down from £250,000 to £136,000 this year, and will end completely at the end of this financial year.Secondly, the Institute is facing a growing irrecoverable VAT burden as a result of the conferences and Academy training courses that it has been providing, partially to generate income to offset the loss of the OCS’ grant.

Villa Esperanza Services is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the care and education of children, adults and seniors with developmental, intellectual and other disabilities.The announcement comes during the month of April, recognized as Autism Awareness Month, helping raise awareness about the spectrum disorder that is currently suspected to affect up to 1 in 68 children, with the rate even higher in boys with 1 in 42 diagnosed with the disorder in the United States.Ricki Robinson, MD“Autism is one of the fastest growing childhood epidemics of our time. Soon these autistic children will be adults, and it is more important than ever for professionals and parents to increase their knowledge about successful treatment models, and for society to create systems that acknowledge the needs of its citizens on the autism spectrum,” explains Ricki Robinson, MD, a clinical leader holding a Masters of Public Health and Villa Esperanza Services board member. “Villa Esperanza Services is truly part of the daily solution for families and one of the only nonprofits extending full continuity of care, helping children and adults alike.”The capital campaign entitled “Hope Moves Forward” reflects the organization’s namesake meaning “House of Hope” founded by a group of mothers in 1961 to help their children with disabilities.Joe Defur“Due to the urgent need in our community, and as a result of the passion and confidence we have in the mission of Villa Esperanza Services, Wells Fargo is proud to support the organization during this critical time,” said Joe Defur, Wells Fargo Private Bank senior managing director for California and Villa Esperanza board member. “For the past 21 years Wells Fargo executives have served on Villa Esperanza Services’ board of directors to help bring hope to families in Southern California, and the need for improvements at Villa Esperanza has never been more vital.”The first phase of the capital campaign master plan is a nine million dollar goal that will allow the organization to build a new school and purchase and renovate a new permanent home for the adult day program. This will allow for an increase in school enrollment by 41 percent and 36 percent in the adult day program. Villa Esperanza Services plans to break ground in July 2015. Phase two of the capital campaign will begin shortly thereafter, and is another nine million dollar goal, which will help complete the renovation including new occupational and physical therapy facilities and administrative offices.David DiCristofaro“At Wells Fargo we know we can only be as strong as the strength of the communities we serve, and with autism rates on the rise it is more important than ever to help the professionals and families in need of successful treatment models and programs,” said David DiCristofaro, Wells Fargo president of Greater Los Angeles. “Wells Fargo believes so strongly in the urgent need and effectiveness of the services Villa Esperanza provides that this donation is coming from our national philanthropy budget and is above and beyond our annual local giving. When you see the dedication of the staff and the amazing outcomes of the students, it becomes crystal clear that the work Villa Esperanza is doing is making an important impact.”In 2013 Wells Fargo was named top corporate philanthropist locally and nationally, donating $275 million to nonprofit and community organizations across the country, with $29 million donated in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.About Villa Esperanza ServicesVilla Esperanza Services is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the care and education of children, adults and seniors with developmental, intellectual and other disabilities.
