In Palmetto Bay, the next Regular Council Meeting will take place on December 5 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., immediately following the swearing-in ceremony for the newly elected officials. It’s the usual location of course, at the Village of Palmetto Bay Municipal Center, 9705 E. Hibiscus Street in Palmetto Bay. “Discussion and public input will be welcomed concerning the following hearing item on First Reading which may be of interest to your immediate neighborhood…” It’s about an ordinance of the Mayor and Village Council relating to the Downtown Urban Village (Duv) Zoning District, and it’s sponsored by Vice Mayor John DuBois. Sounds like something a lot of folks will be interested in hearing about and voicing an opinion. Since it’s on First Reading there won’t be a council vote yet, but there’ll probably be a lot of discussion and also input from residents. Got questions? Call 305-259-1234.
