Jan. 5, 2004 Ira Wade, deputy director of the Public Works Department on St. John, will speak at the Jan. 12 meeting of the Coral Bay Community Council. The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. at the John's Folly Learning Institute. Meetings run for about one hour.
CBCC President Sharon Coldren said that Wade will discuss the federal road project now under way in the Coral Bay area. Additionally Wade will address the department's plans for the trash bins that sit along Route 107.
"The Dumpsters have been an eyesore in the shoreline habitat for years," Coldren said, adding that a long-term solution to the situation is needed.
According to Coldren, members will also discuss the organization's projects, which include land-use planning, watershed issues, ocean use and protection, infrastructure/services, and history and cultural preservation.
Coldren said the CBCC, which held its first meeting in November, now has 65 members. Annual dues are $20.
Membership applications are available at Connections East in Coral Bay and at the CBCC office located above K2 Video in Coral Bay.
The office is open only a few hours a day. When the office is staffed, the CBCC banner will be hanging outside.
