BSO DETECTIVE MOORE WILL GIVE AN UPDATE ON THE SEXUAL OFFENDERS and predators in this community at the meeting of the Broadview Park Civic Association on Tuesday evening, April 5th, 7:30 PM at Sunview Park.  Since the county extended the buffer zone to 2500 feet, the number of offenders has been decreasing.  The offenders who were already here were not forced to move, but if one moves out, he can’t move back in again.  No new offenders can move in.  The sheriff’s office checks regularly on these men.

We are pleased to have two good neighbors who have volunteered to serve on our board of directors.  We will be voting to elect Julio Villarreal to the board.  Bill Long was voted into office at our February meeting.

We will have reports from BSO Chief Butler and from Chris Dickey regarding the Neighborhood Improvement Project. 

 

COMMUNITY CLEAN-UP AND PIZZA, SATURDAY, APRIL 2nd, 8:00 AM

It’s Spring Cleaning time again.  Let’s tidy up our neighborhood.  Please volunteer to help by joining our Bagathon.  Report to Sunview Park at 8:00 AM on Saturday, April 2nd.  After checking in, teams will go out to various locations in the community such as the areas around the school,  the park, and the wellfields to pick up the litter that spoils the appearance of our neighborhood.  At 11:45 the teams will return to Sunview to enjoy pizza and soda.  The county will provide trash bags and gloves for the volunteers as well as T-shirts and some great souvenir giveaways.  Wear a hat and bring along some water.  Earn community service credits for school or for scout badges.  All ages can help.  Call Juan Formoso at 954-260-8105 if you need further information. 

 

In connection with the clean-up, a dumpster will be placed on SW 18th Street which runs along the south side of Sunview Park.  The dumpster will be placed just west of 43rd Avenue by the well field.  This location is on the same street, but a little further west than in the past.     Residents will be allowed to bring bulk trash, tree limbs, etc. to the dumpster from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  Save yourself a trip to the dump.  Bring old paint, insecticides, fertilizer, etc.  County staff members will be on hand to supervise.

 

ARE THERE ANY TECHIES OUT THERE?

Nick Smith who is the professional webmaster for our website, “BroadviewPark.org” no longer lives in the neighborhood.  Although he still owns his house here, he is living in upstate New York.  He still manages our website, but has suggested that there might be a young person in the community who would like to learn the skills of a webmaster.  Nick is willing to train a volunteer via phone and e-mail and pass along his extensive knowledge.  If you are interested or know of a teen who would want to acquire these skills, call Jan at 954-583-0796.  She will put you in touch with Nick.

EXPLOSION ROCKS THE NEIGHBORHOOD

Neighbors were stunned as debris rained down on their rooftops last month.  At 8:30 PM on Sunday, February 13th, there was a violent explosion in a home in the 2200 block of SW 43rd Way.  BSO investigators believe the explosion was caused by a propane tank being used as part of a marijuana grow house.  Ten three-foot tall marijuana plants were removed from the property.  Amazingly no one was hurt.  Several dogs survived the blast, but the area was without electricity for about six hours when flying debris ignited a transformer.

COUNTY CONSIDERING NEW TRASH BARRELS

The county’s waste and recycling officials are considering the use of new barrels similar to those used by the city of Fort Lauderdale.  These barrels have wheels so they can easily be moved to and from the curb and can be picked up automatically by the truck.  The officials are still debating what size and how many barrels each homeowner should receive for yard trash, garbage, and recycling purposes.  More recycling would bring income to offset the cost of services.  If the plans get the go-ahead, they would be implemented on January 1, 2012.
