What’s Happening On Gregory Road? Find Out This Thursday…

Meeting reminder

From the Southend Neighborhood Association:

Thursday July 9th at 6:30 pm., please join SENA and the City of West Palm Beach Public Works Department to discuss an important project set on Gregory Road. The City and FPL will be making a powerpoint presentation with an open discussion to address FPL’s current project. FPL is set to replace all the old wood poles with concrete poles.

The City has asked SENA to facilitate communication between our members, FPL and the City. The specific area that is affected is Gregory Road between Olive Ave. and Dixie Highway. The discussion will focus on placement options, back of sidewalk or within the swale area.

Even if you do not live on Gregory, we are all neighbors and share in what happens in our community. We would like to make sure we have a large turnout. City is providing refreshments.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Best regards,
Your South End Neighbors

Help Design The Next Chapter of West Palm Beach’s Southend Neighborhood

SouthDixieProperty

In 2012, after rumors began circulating that Wal-Mart had eyes on developing 8111 South Dixie Highway (the site of the old IHOP), the City purchased the 7-acre piece of property for $2.9 million. City leaders wanted to focus on a more innovative project that would help continue revitalizing the Southend. And, as the Southern most piece of property in West Palm Beach, leaders view it as as the gateway to the City for those coming from the South.

ihop

The site was cleared in October of last year and now the City of West Palm Beach is looking for help with the redevelopment of 8111.  From the 18th till the 21st of May, the City will be hosting Design Charrettes.

The Design Charrette Kickoff meeting is tonight, May 18th at the South Olive Community Center, 345 Summa St, @ 6:30PM.

Come visit the Design Charrette Sessions, which will be held in the Hibiscus Room at Mandel Public Library

Tuesday, May 19 – Open to Public 6PM to 8PM
Wednesday, May 20 – Open to Public 6PM to 8PM
Thursday, May 21– Open to Public 10AM to 12PM

The designers will be working each of the 3 days from 9:30AM to 8:00PM.

The public session will be available for the public to come view what the designers are working on and give their feedback and ideas as the designs are developed.

Want to view the final plans and see what’s next for the Southend?

On May 20 at 6PM, you’re invited to sit in on a special session where the Parks Master plan draft will be unveiled.

This is your chance to help create the kind of neighborhood you want to live in. Don’t let the opportunity to get involved pass you by.

The Palm Beach Zoo’s Surprise Arrivals

Babies

Proving that good things come to those who wait, Fred and Wilma, the Palm Beach Zoo’s adult alligators recently celebrated the arrival of nine alligator hatchlings. While the couple had lived together in the habitat for more than a decade and Wilma had built a nest every year since 1999, these were the only fertile eggs. A member of the groundskeeping staff was the first to notice a baby alligator swimming in the habitat.

Guests are encouraged to come meet the first-time parents in the American alligator habitat located in the Florida Wetlands section of the Zoo. The baby alligators, however, are currently remaining behind-the-scenes in the Zoo’s Melvin J. & Claire Levine Animal Care Complex.

No word on whether any of the offspring will be named Pebbles.

Salt therapy is a modern variation of the Eastern European tradition of spending time in natural salt caves for health. Kaffee’s recently introduced Salt Room is the epitome of relaxation, complete with a backlit Himalayan salt wall and zero gravity chairs.  Patrons lay back and breathe in the benefits of the micronized aerosol of purified salt mist created by a state of the art Halogenerator.

According to Kaffee Keldie, ” [Dry Salt Therapy] is a non toxic, safe holistic way to relax and improve the lung function and the skin but actually the whole of the body feels refreshed so we really like to say it is a Body Wellness Therapy”.
