Kiwanis Gourmet Lawn Party attendees

To: Longboat Key Commissioner Penny Gold

Penny, omitted from your list of activities is the annual Kiwanis Gourmet Lawn Party on December 4th starting at 12 noon (officially).  Kiwanis is now projecting 800 attendees, likely to outnumber all the other activities put together.  We had to limit the number of guests only because of the currently useable/available area for tents, concession stands, band, etc.  Otherwise we had projected 1,000 guests.

Non-conforming count

To: Longboat Key Town Manager Tom Harmer

Do we know what percentage of single-family homes are non-conforming and could we provide a workshop for non-conforming homes on protecting the livability and stability of neighborhoods and perhaps an opportunity for those in non-conforming homes to share what they have done to make their homes safer from water intrusion? Monday’s presentation really needs to get a much wider audience.

Sea level rise, storm resiliency initiatives

To: Longboat Key Town Manager Tom Harmer

Enjoyed the time yesterday discussing resiliency, sustainability and some of the green/environmental initiatives on the Town’s list. I don’t know how the staff does it all!

As mentioned, there is a small group of residents forming a task team (most likely as part of LBK North) to look at ways to leverage some neighborhood economies of scale and education to support “greener” opportunities in the community.  Agree, it would be a great idea to get the task team together with Town staff for a good exchange of ideas and support in February.

I’ll relay your suggestion that they should use a similar approach to working with the Town, as was done with the Beach Volunteer Program, which had a successful launch and is still going strong.

I had one additional thought after our discussion; we should consider including an agenda item about these “Green” topics when the Commission is meeting to discuss the sea level rise studies and recommendations.  We are doing a great job preparing for potential climate effects – and we should strive to do just as well mitigating some of the underlying causes.

Thanks again for all you and our Town staff do.

Updated Sea Turtle Protection Ordinance Outreach

To: Longboat Key Town Manager Tom Harmer

As you’re aware, even though the 2021 Sea Turtle Nesting Season just officially ended (Sea Turtle Nesting Season is from May 1st through November 1st each year), staff are gearing up to share with the community recent changes that will be in effect for next year’s Sea Turtle Nesting Season.

The Town’s recent updates (approved on July 2, 2021) to the Marine Turtle Protection Ordinance will go into effect on January 2, 2022 and will be applicable during the next nesting season, which starts on May 1, 2022.

The updated regulations address exterior lighting, storing items on the beach at night, building permitting/inspections requirements, prohibited activities, obstructions on the beach and the usage of a new Recreational Use Agreement that will be needed for upland property owners to store any furniture or recreational equipment on the beach.

One of the ways the Town will be working to share these updates, so that the public is educated, is via a series of public forums for the community to learn more and ask questions.  Information on those sessions is provided below. All of the sessions will provide the same information, so anyone interested can pick one of the dates/times.

We’ll be providing notice via USPS to properties that front on the Gulf and will be reaching out via social and other media channels, email lists, and attending various group meetings.

Longboat Emergency Dispatch needs fixing

To: Longboat Key Mayor Ken Schneier

I am appalled at the lack of proper service we residents are receiving from the 911 emergency service center.  On the 16th of November I came upon a ninety-six year old  neighbor that had fallen and badly cut his face and scalp.  I immediately called 911 which at first I was in a hold pattern but only for a short time.  I identified myself as a doctor, notified the person on the phone that I have a bad bleeding situation and needed emergency services immediately.  The ambulance is only two blocks from the location.  Now the person on the other end of the phone started asking twenty questions and still had not agreed to dispatch the EMTs.  So here I am, trying to stop the bleeding while trying to talk with this person.

My wife came in so I gave her the phone so I could be free to work on the injured person. Again she was subject to twenty questions.  After eleven minutes, I called the non-emergency Police number and told the officer who answered the phone that I need an ambulance and assistance immediately.  I then hung up the phone.  After another two minutes I finally heard the siren.

Longboat Key is my full-time home and this 911 service is pathetic.  It could have been my family or even your family that needed immediate services, but the 911 call center was only interested in completing the paperwork before dispatching the EMTs.

I am glad it wasn’t a Cardiac arrest where time is of the essence.  Something has to be done.  I feel, the town Commission owes it to the residents to upgrade this emergency service.  Maybe we should once again have our own dispatch center.  I am sure if you asked everyone in the entire Island to donate to start this service, the town would collect enough funds to start our own service again.  Just think if was you or one of your family members that needed immediate service from bleeding, chocking or Cardiac arrest.  Those critical first minutes can make a difference between life and death. Feel free to contact me at any time.

911 Service

To: Myron Bernstein

Dr. Bernstein, thanks for copying me on your email.  Sorry to hear about your neighbor.

I have asked the Fire Chief to follow up with the 911 Center on what occurred.  I have asked that he also reach out to you directly tomorrow to discuss the call and to let you know that he is following up on what occurred.

He will be reviewing the 911 call processing and the dispatch times.  Fortunately, the 911 center calls and the dispatch of units are all taped and time stamped so we should be able to ascertain what happened.

Proposed Verizon pole

To: Longboat Key Commissioner Maureen Merrigan

Faye and I are opposed to the proposed Verizon pole location in the right of way across from Mrs. Frost on Binnacle Point Drive directly next to a Longboat Key preservation area.

I spoke with Keri Burroughs for about an hour regarding the proposed pole. His basic pitch was that the reason for improving the Verizon cellular network was safety. In other words, first responders needed reliable cellular coverage. I asked if I could see the study that supported his claim that the tower he proposed on Binnacle Point Drive could not be relocated to GMD. Keri explained that the study was considered proprietary information developed by Verizon and not available for distribution to the public. Keri also confirmed that the tower is only 4G capable. The photographic simulation caption says “4G and Future Technology.” What will the 5G modified tower look like?

We did not buy a house next to the airport. Keri’s assertion that the other proposed tower, node 002, not on GMD is in a residential community is ridiculous. The tower he is referencing is in the MarVista parking lot right of way, commercial property. The homeowners across from MarVista knew about the adjacent commercial space before they bought. The fact that there is a cell tower in the parking lot of a restaurant across the street is of no consequence to them.

Faye and I are being billed over $7,000 dollars for the undergrounding of the electrical service to our new home. We were excited about the improvement even though it required personal expense. Now we hear that there is going to be a 25′ black pole dropped across the street between Binnacle Point and the preserve area. We will look at that thing every time we check for traffic coming down the street! Mrs. Frost will look directly at it every time she comes down her driveway! So much for beautification of the island.

We ask that the Town of Longboat Key direct Verizon to put node 005 with a 35-foot cell tower out on GMD with the rest of the cell towers.

You could be the next neighbor to get a cell tower across the street from your house. It will not end with this one tower. Please defend your residents against “Future technology” and proprietary studies. This is not a “safety issue”.

Cell poles

To: Longboat Key Commission

I feel that all the Residents of Emerald Harbor Should be made aware of this very important meeting on both Monday and Tuesday.  I have contacted several of the city employees about this Installation of Verizon’s pole and antenna on Binnacle Point Drive on the City’s Easement right in front of the Frost’s and the Smith’s residences.

The Emerald Harbor location from what I have read is the only cell pole being installed directly inside a subdivision with many residents residing in E.H.

Country Club Shores has 600+ homes and many more residents than Emerald Harbor.

To my knowledge there are no Poles and antennas in CC Shores!

The P&Z and The Building Dept. says they are not aware of the reasons to place the Pole/Antenna inside E.H., other than there are dropped calls on the North end of the Island. It is difficult to maintain a call if a person still has a Flip-Phone.

I have an Iphone with AT&T service and I rarely have lost a call with my Iphone.

I would ask Verizon to explain their “Compelling List of Reasons” in detail with their data they possess that requires their decision to install the Pole & Antenna on Binnacle Point Dr.  If they think it is for better service for Spanish Main and Emerald Harbor, I respectively disagree with their decision to place the Equipment in our subdivision.

Please place this Binnacle Point Drive, cell pole on GMD, where all the other cell service items are located on GMD.

I personally do not want this Pole and Antenna on Binnacle Point Drive and many others I have spoken with are opposed to it.  The appropriate Location for Verizon to install the Pole and Antenna is on GMD. The additional cell companies, AT&T and T-Mobile will be entering their service possibly in the near Future.

If and possibly when there are any health issues with this location of Verizon’s pole and antenna on Binnacle Point Dr., I would like Verizon to have that data available for us and explain. Also, I want Verizon and the Town of LBK to give the residents of E.H. the data on the subject of health issues with this technology right at our Front Doors 24/7.

I will be unavailable for this meeting on Monday.  I hope as many residents that are in town will please attend this meeting. If the residents that are not here as yet if you are aware, maybe only thru the HOA members or from our BOD of this Town meeting please Email or call your Elected Officials and City Department Heads. You may only have information that you may be reading in the local Observer or the Longboat Key News.

As our Leaders we rely on you to protect our interest! Thank you for your consideration to deny this location and place the Verizon Cell equipment on GMD, it’s the right decision for you to make.

Verizon pole

To: Longboat Key Commissioner Maureen Merrigan

I still plan on attending the Commission meeting tomorrow and hope to be given an opportunity to speak.

If I am given an opportunity, I will state that I object to the Proposed Ordinance 2021-16 unless two changes are made that I believe will further enhance the safety and welfare of the residents and visitors (a stated purpose of the proposed Ordinance).  The two changes are:

1) Adding a requirement that all personal wireless facilities at all times comply with the FCC’s limits for human exposure to radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields.

2) In evaluating the application for a Special Exception for a freestanding facility, the Planning and Zoning Board shall also consider (a) The distance of the proposed freestanding facility to the nearest condominium unit and single-family residence measured from the freestanding facility to the boundary of the nearest single-family residence and condominium unit; and (b) The potential impacts on property values of nearby or surrounding single-family properties and condominium units.

Regarding 1) above, below is the link to the FCC Publication: “A Local Government Official’s Guide to Transmitting Antenna RF Emission Safety:

Rules, Procedures, and Practical Guidance.”

https://wireless.fcc.gov/siting/FCC_LSGAC_RF_Guide.pdf

This is an introductory guide.  It was taken from the FCC’s web page on Radio Frequency Safety at https://www.fcc.gov/general/radio-frequency-safety-0

All Applicants should be required to submit documentation demonstrating their compliance with the FCC guidelines that is reviewed by PZ Staff and/or industry consultants paid for by the Applicant.

Regarding 2) above, the PZ Board only has to consider impacts on single family residence distances and property values.  There is no requirement to consider impacts on condominium units.  My change adds condominium units and are in bold.

I hope I will be allowed to speak and the Commission considers my two proposed changes to further enhance the health and safety of Town residents and visitors.

Longboat Key update

To: Longboat Key North Representatives

Since you don’t have a meeting on the agenda just yet for the next month I wanted to provide you with a quick update on two topics so you can keep your neighbors informed.

Beaches & Ohana

The beaches have been re-nourished on the Key and for those of you walking north the expanse of sand near Longboat Pass is amazing.

As you are well aware, the new owners of the Ohana property are not allowing residents to traverse their seawall to go north and south on the beach, leaving walkers, joggers, beach volunteers and turtle patrol to either wade through the water in front of the seawall or exit the beach and walk a mile down GMD.

I promised I would update this group on Ohana after my meeting this week – this is what I know so far.

As many of you have continuously requested, I asked our Town Manager and Attorney, who are leading the interactions with the owners, if the owners would be open to providing access along their seawall as has been a tradition over decades.  But this time allowing the Town to make a nice path out on the edge, helping with liability, leveraging LBK North to educate the public on appropriate use, even if just for a 6 month pilot to get us through this winter.  According to our Town Manager and Attorney, based on their discussions with the owner, this is not going to happen.  Any donation/voluntary access provided by the owners appears out, sadly.  Building a walkway seaward of the seawall also appears to be out of the question due to permitting restrictions.

We have coastal engineers, public works and lawyers looking at a number of options still, but nothing I have heard is going to solve the issue immediately (for this season).  For anyone interested in this topic specifically, the Commissioners will be discussing options at the December Commission meeting.  Please continue to respect the owners signage.

Town Center

On a better note, below is a video that describes the activities that are going on at the Town Center this year  – giving you one more reason not to fight traffic and leave the Key!.  This lawn site, located behind Publix, will be fully built out with a stage, walkways. lighting, etc in the year ahead and should prove to be a wonderful venue.

Please share with your residents and mark your calendars

* Tree Lighting on 11/27 at 5:30 PM
* Kiwanis Lawn Party on 12/4
* Three Friday Markets starting 1/14 and continuing in February and March
* Three Concerts starting 1/22 and continuing in February and March
* Art Shows starting in February

And if you haven’t noticed – Whitney’s (the winner of your Good Neighbor Award) has an excellent new drink selection for happy hour!

Verizon pole
To: Longboat Key Commission

It has been running through my head, again and again, that the light poles were placed and selected specifically so a carrier would not need to add additional poles. Epic failure on that point. Definitely need more specifics and exact details of poles (with or without lights? Placement?). Also, given that situation, maybe the light poles along GMD can now be shorter and/or fewer and help protect the turtle nesting season better.

Proposed Verizon Tower 3 at 6900 Block GMD

To: Longboat Key Town Manager Tom Harmer, Town Commission

I am writing to express my strong opposition to the proposed location of Tower 3.  The proposed tower is right next to my condo at Sea Pines. In other words, I will be directly impacted by your decision, as will my neighbors.

We are asking that the proposed location be moved across the street to Whitney Plaza, in keeping with the character of that area.

More importantly, I am concerned about the health risks of living so close to a cell phone tower.  The American Cancer Center website states the following:

“At this time, there’s no strong evidence that exposure to RF waves from cell phone towers causes any noticeable health effects. However, this does not mean that the RF waves from cell phone towers have been proven to be absolutely safe. Most expert organizations agree that more research is needed to help clarify this, especially for any possible long-term effects.”

If the shoe were on the other foot, in other words, if you were sitting in my shoes, would you vote to put the tower right next to where you live?  Would you tell your kids and grandkids not to worry because “there’s no strong evidence?”

I also concerned about the impact on our property values. I am also concerned the proposed location is situated in a drainage ditch. I first came to Longboat Key in 1981 and have owned at Sea Pines since 2003.  We have learned to live with the spotty cell phone service.  I have a land line and use WiFi calling.  I agree service should be improved, but if the cost is our health, none of us think it’s worth the risk. Thank you for considering my views.

Matt Schroeder

Proposed Verizon Tower 3 at 6900 Block GMD

To: Matt Schroeder

Thank you for your concern regarding the Verizon cell phone poles under discussion.  A few thoughts:  1.  The installation of these poles was the subject of a Town Commission meeting last week and will be on the agenda for a further hearing before us this Monday, November 14, and a Planning Board hearing on Wednesday, November 16.  Both hearings are open to the public, and all members of the; public are invited to speak.  Please take advantage of this opportunity.  2.  When the utility undergrounding project was undertaken years ago, its objectives were to improve safety, aesthetics and communication services on the island.  This last objective recognized the dismal state of cell phone service on the North end, including 911 service.  An actual tower of 150 feet in height had been proposed for the area some ten years ago, with agreements signed, but objections to such a massive project prevailed.   3.  The undergrounding ordinances recognized these concerns and specifically mandated that cell carriers agree to locate small cell transmission equipment either on our new light poles or on poles of their own construction with numerous conditions and restrictions.  Among those restrictions were severe limits on height (the proposed poles are not “towers” under any definition and cannot exceed the height of our new light poles on GMD or in the neighborhoods), the requirement that any poles match our pole aesthetics and the requirement that substantial distance be maintained between any poles located on the island.  All these requirements are being addressed.

Please know that the current plans, far from being rushed, are the culmination of more than ten years of work to find a solution to the phone service issues on almost half the island about which the Town still receives complaints nearly every day.  The rules to implement the solution were built into the undergrounding plans approved five years ago.  The Town has worked with every member of the community to resolve individual issues regarding this project and will continue to do so, but we are clearly on the path the entire community approved long ago.

Finally, without getting too deep into the weeds, you should know that federal and State regulations have increasingly pre-empted the right of municipalities to have any say in how, where and by whom communication equipment is installed in their communities.  Our undergrounding legislation was designed specifically and narrowly to reserve to Longboat Key as much control over these details, including height, location and design, as the law would allow.  Absent our rules and our compliance with them, cell companies could literally plant taller and uglier poles wherever they wanted.  Again, we appreciate your concern with this issue and invite your participation.  But I thought some background might be helpful for you and others who may be interested.

Proposed Verizon Tower 3 at 6900 Block GMD

To: Longboat Key Mayor Ken Schneier

As I stated in my email, I am concerned about the health risks of having a 35-foot cell tower right next to my condo and next to where people live.

Respectfully, your email does not address that concern.  That is what I meant by rushing. Forgive me, since I was unclear what I meant.

Specifically, I am concerned about the effects of exposure to radiofrequency (RF) waves from living so close.  RF waves from thousands of cell phones will be continuously sent to and received from the tower right outside my condo.

This is a reasonable health concern.  Has it been considered and analyzed?  Respectfully, Verizon should not be relied upon as they have a conflict of interest. That’s why we are asking that it be moved to Whitney Plaza.

Matt Schroeder

Longboat Key

Verizon pole placement

To: Longboat Key Commissioner Maureen Merrigan, Town Manager Tom Harmer

I’m writing to voice my concern about proposed installation of the nine antenna poles on the North end of Longboat. I own a home in Emerald Harbor.  I’m sorry I cannot be at the meeting, but would appreciate it if you would review my comments.

I have Verizon service, but I’m concerned about the number and height of these antennas.  My cell service is not great, but it’s not horrible.  At a time when Longboat Key is going to all this trouble and expense to hide electrical wires, and doing other under-grounding work, I oppose these so-called “personal facilities.”

A while ago (not sure how many years) residents rejected cell towers.  It seems like these antennas (think that’s what they really are) are a way for Verizon to loop back and try again with shorter towers.  This is not fair to AT&T customers, but even if Verizon and AT&T shared these structures, they’d still be a potential blight.

What would they actually look like?  Verizon should have pictures for people.  At 25′ would the one on Binnacle Point Drive near where I live be installed so the trees would cover it – or do trees/foliage somehow impair its effectiveness so it would have to stick out. That’s not fair to Binnacle homeowners, or possibly to Spanish Main homeowners.

It looks like the nine poles are just on the Manatee part of the island – if so, why?  I’m really not sure.  Did Verizon already try this on the Sarasota portion of Longboat Key, or is the cell service there great?

Seven antennas at 35′ along GMD starting around 5000 to the village is excessive and would junk up GMD, unless Verizon is required to completely hide them in foliage.  Would that really happen, and who would make sure they continued to be camouflaged?

Again I’m sorry I can’t make it to the meeting.  I hope the serious effort to beautify the island with painstaking and expensive underground work will not be undone by giving Verizon (or really any other carrier) the go-ahead to put up unsightly structures.  Please do not allow them to do that.

Excellent police work

To: Longboat Key Commission

I wish to highly commend the police for the great job they are doing in keeping the bike lane free of obstructions.  It is amazing how wonderfully clear the bike lane is now.  It has never been this close to perfect.  I can only think the new police chief is the main reason the bike lane is so clear of landscapers, delivery trucks and parked vehicles.  It makes riding a bike much safer.

I believe it is important for council members to know what a great improvement this is compared to 1 year ago when I was frequently calling in to the police reports of obstructions in the bike lane.

FDOT Workplan

To: Longboat Key Commission

I was recently notified by FDOT District Secretary LK Nandam that they are required to reallocate a significant amount funding in their 5-year work plan to other State priorities.  He indicated that this requirement impacts the current funding plan for a number of projects, including the Country Club Shores turn lane project originally scheduled for FY25.

The District Secretary has committed to identify other funding sources to continue to advance our project.  He has indicated that he has identified a potential source of funds that could actually accelerate our project from the original timeline.  There are some follow up and approvals needed to move this approach forward but funding may be available as soon as their current fiscal year.

The staff will be working with FDOT to advance this option, including any necessary agreements and approvals necessary to make sure the project is fully funded. We will keep the Town Commission up to date as additional information becomes available.
