At our request, the City of St Pete removed miscellaneous plants and evasive trees along the east side of Overlook Drive. After the clearing took place, two sections of the seawall were determined to be in need of major repairs. Those repairs have now started . When the fixes are finished, we will add two additional Royal Palms.
Future plans could see the HOA taking over the landscaping maintenance along both sides of Overlook. We will also explore re-sodding the area with St Augustine vs the existing Bahia.
Grand Canal Blvd:
Continuing to work with the City Engineering Department to put pressure on Duke Energy to reinstall a light post on the south side of the newly repaired seawall along Mass Ave.
Also, staying informed about the bidding and expected awarding of the contract to fix all the seawall's along Grand Canal Blvd and Mermaid Point.
Reported various overhanging trees impeding the walkways along Grand Canal Blvd. All have thus been trimmed.
Stump removal and brick replacement is now completed by the Lift Station at Illinois Ave and Grand Canal.
Will be obtaining site plans for the three replacement monuments. Once we have those we will work with City Engineering on the specifics. After everything is approved we will begin the bidding process so we can apply for a matching grant.
