Update on the Shade-Our-Kids Project

Monday, August 31, 2015 @ 04:08 PM

Dear Members,

It is official. We are on the docket for September 3rd’s City Commission Meeting (6:00 p.m.). At the most recent meeting, Richard Harris gave a short presentation on where we are today with our project – including news that we’ve collected/assmbled over half the amount of money we believe to be needed to fund our project. Therefore, this action sets in motion a review of our request (by City staff), of which will either be a recommendation for or against (that the city fund 50%) our project and our commissioners will vote on it.

I believe this to be a win/win situation for the City and us. However, what I think doesn’t matter. What matters is what you – our membership – think(s). I encourage you to e-mail and/or write our mayor and commissioners  and let them know what you think and ask them to support the project! I also encourage you to come to the meeting on September 3rd as a show of support (and wear one of your Sunset Beach t-shirts).

Please note that the September 3rd meeting will also be the first of two (2) required public hearings/workshops on our city’s upcoming budget. Thus, our project request is timely in that it is coming before the city and the public at just the right time.

Thank you.


Steve Yost
