Halloween

In this month’s Panther, SIPOA advised everyone about a Halloween option we have been planning. That is, we want to hold an outdoor drive-by on October 31st from 6:00 to 7:30 pm for any costumed trick or treaters being driven by their folks. Masked SIPOA board members and adult volunteers will pass candy into the cars and allow kids to step out of the passenger side of the vehicles to have their pictures taken in their Halloween costumes. Cars will be asked to pull into the parking spaces across from the Parkway adjacent to the Vinoy Golf Course easement.

HOWEVER, we can only do this if we get enough RSVP’s from families advising that they are comfortable with the plan and that they will bring their children. So far we have only received 12 responses and we need at least 50 to do this. So we are asking that you RSVP to either board president Rick Birmingham This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Or vice president Bonnie Hargrett This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to participate. Please do this as soon as possible so we can plan accordingly.

3 Invasive Plant Removal Plan: Tidal Creek, Ramon Way and Appian Way: 3 October 2020, 9 AM

Registration at the site, Ramon and Appian Way, starting at 8:30 AM, 3 October.

This creek services stormwater runoff from the local area as well as from storm drains along Snell Isle Blvd. During previous projects, we removed Brazilian Peppers and Carrotwood trees that were competing with native plants along the creek embankment. We also removed dense foliage that provided camouflage for nefarious activity. In this phase, principal work is to remove Brazilian Pepper trees: dead debris that is in the creek bed and live growth on the far side of the creek. Above and Beyond Landscaping- Antwon Montgomery is the contractor; their team will do the extraction with chainsaws and a truck to bring debris to the easement area. Volunteers will use loppers and saws to cut the debris and load it on a trailer.

CBWA and SIPOA will coordinate the work and provide supplies (water, snacks, gloves) and KPB will support the project with tools and equipment. Funding supporting this project includes funds from Tampa Bay Estuary Program, Tampa Bay Water, Saint Thomas Episcopal Church, and Snell Isle Property Owners Association.

Participants must be at least 16 years old; dress for the operation should include pants, shirts, and closed foot wear. We advise that the embankment is very uneven and a difficult place to work. In a previous project someone fell into the creek. Please be careful.
