Blueway Trail Project: News blackout at Palm Beach Post is not working.

“I attended a League of Cities lunch for representatives from [Palm Beach County] District 2 and District 3 held at the Atlantis Country Club. . . . It was very interesting to have lunch with the other elected officials and to hear what’s on their minds. I can tell you that, the Blueway Trail Project, there’s this very, very strong interest in that from our neighboring elected officials just like there’s strong interest from our residents here in Lake Worth.”
—Commissioner Omari Hardy, City of Lake Worth, District 2 (northern border is the C-51 Canal) during his Commissioner Liaison Report to the City Commission on May 16th.

The Post is not reporting this story at all. So it’s left to the citizenry, elected and public officials to spread the word throughout Palm Beach County.

And, of course, there’s also this blog:
  • Will looters and marauders from Lake Clarke Shores use the C-51 boat bypass to invade residential neighborhoods in the City of Lake Worth?
  • Read about my conversation with Mr. Buddy Tuppen. Does the name “Tuppen” sound familiar?
  • To learn about tourism, the fishing industry, and the C-51 Canal in the first half of the 20th Century use this link.
  • Fishermen and fisherwomen need to take on more responsibility now that the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) has already made improvements to the site.
  • And on a light-hearted note, read about a former Lake Worth commissioner, worried about increased boat traffic on the C-51 Canal and said, “Hey, we were just thinking of putting I-95 right there.” Not joking. That was an actual quote.
Stay tuned, as they say. This is a very exciting project — not just for Central Palm Beach County — but for entire region as well.
