I have placed on the February 25th Commission Agenda (This Tuesday @ 6:30 PM), a vote for the City Commission to approve a DISCUSSION AND/OR ACTION to set a workshop regarding the boat/RV Storage lots.
This is a 'Request to set a date for a workshop to discuss and review the storage lot issues brought forth by residents – Submitted By Commissioner Sims'

The issues I wish to discuss, IF the majority of the commission approves the workshop, are as follows:


● reducing the rates as promised by the Commission
● storage lots continue to be nonprofit, yet monies are being transferred out of the Parking Lot fund to fund other areas of the budget
● create larger parking spaces within our existing lots (to accommodate 40 foot vehicles)
● fill current vacant spaces before any expansion is considered
● restrict the storage lots to Cooper City residents who should have priority, then businesses, and in addition, perform an inventory
● current renters should not be charged solely for a capital investment when the practice is otherwise throughout the city
● current estimate for expansion lot would cost approximately $20,000 per rental family. This is extremely unreasonable.

If you need to change, add or delete anything to this list for discussion (again, IF the majority of the commission approves this workshop) please feel free to do so and contact me so I can add it to my list above.
Let me know if you need anymore information.
 
I hope that the city, and others involved will give notice to everyone as soon as (again, a big 'IF') we have a definite date.  

As such, it seems that the only way this current commission acts on behalf of the residents concerns, is if multitudes of people show up and show their support. Please do so!
