Provide the ordinance in pdf format so citizens can make suggestions or ask questions relevant to a specific part of the ordinance. Make it like a wikipedia page. Or crowdsource it. The smartest person always works somewhere else - another city, company, university, etc. Make use of that expertise.

I propose you kill this proposed ordinance.

By the way. I hate this forum. Find something more user friendly.

  1. Publicize it. The last entry was a year ago. Right now the neighborhood site does more business. Maybe link it to the main page. 2. Provide substantive feedback to each suggestion or comment as quickly as possible. Right now, no one knows if anyone in the city even reads this stuff. 3. Make it the major site for HOAs and other organizations to present suggestions to the city. Again, provide feedback, and link to the main page. 4. Promote it as a crowdsourcing site to solve well-defined, specific city problems. The smartest person is always employed somewhere else. Sarasota crowdsourced a water-use ordinance. Even DARPA crowdsources. 5. Encourage employees to provide suggestions on city operations. 6. Offer a reward for the best suggestion of the year. 7. Offer a substantive monetary reward for any suggestion that is implemented and saves the city money. Particularly if it comes from an employee. 8. So, Lee, what do you think?

A pedestrian bridge connection across the river at the cheesecake Factory would be awesome for pedestrians and cyclists. The City is getting much more pedestrian and bicycle friendly but there seems to be a big disconnect between both sides of the river downtown. The boats would probably need to have priority but it beats walking through the tunnel. Here's an example: http://inhabitat.com/lush-green-lilypad-bridge-spins-open-to-accomodate-boat-traffic/loebcapote-arquitetura-spinning-footbridge4-2/?extend=1

I want to start a magazine that will keep our community informed! I propose a monthly magazine that is completely advertising driven so it can be free to the community. It will be mailed to all homes (free of charge) in the Riverland and surrounding communities. It will have sections for upcoming events, real estate, lawyers, community/town hall meetings, general history about our community and lists of emergency outlets for human and pets. There will also be a section for lost pet posters and pets that are up for adoption and possibly up-and-coming new businesses!

The site is being phished. Cheong, Schmidt, Tate, and Lyng all link to a site selling "papers", such as term papers. Nothing to do with the city. No one has commented on this site in over a year. I keep getting notices by email that there are comments, but they are only phishes. I received 21 successive emails of noreply@... Please confirm and advise.

I've never had a problem with flooding in my yard. Nor has the road in front of my house ever flooded. I think this is a bad change and I am completely against it. It will ruin my view of the water.

How can I download and print out the attachments? When I try to do that, I get a prompt that requires me to sign into Scribd for a free trial.

People seem to go out their way to jay walk here. It creates unnecessary public safety issue along public streets. The worst areas are along Sunrise Blvd and 17th st. Causeway.

STOP All Aboard Florida - it will negatively change our quality of life. As a commuter, this project will impact me daily. As a waterfront property owner up the New River, it will affect our leisure and property values. As a taxpayer, our dollars are being used for a private enterprise - one that will fail on top of that. Please fight against this project. It affects the our way of life.
