Civic Committee Report
SBC Civic Committee objective is to enhance the Quality of Life and Home Values in Sandpiper Bay. The city agrees that it essential that these 60-year-old portions of the city be upgraded for the future success of the city, especially when compared to the newer master-planned communities in the city.
The city developed an award-winning program, NICE (Neighborhood Improvement and Community Engagement) to meet these goals. SBC and PSL Neighborhood Services recently agreed to meet monthly to develop a Neighborhood Action Plan and discuss ways to streamline our specific requests to the city through the NICE program. The city considers SBC to be a model organization which they would like to duplicate in the other 34 neighborhood civic associations.
Current action status:
1. Lease land from the city to allow us to communicate better with all Sandpiper Bay residents.
2. Finalize SE Westmoreland traffic calming efforts and evaluate results.
3. Rename the “Sandpiper Bay Homeowners Park” sign to Sandpiper Bay Community Park” to reflect our current name.
1. Advise city officials if potential support exists to acquire the Club Med golf area if that situation ever presents itself. It is difficult for to find park area of that size in the Eastern side of the city.
2. Continue to work with the city to develop a Neighborhood Action Plan to prioritize upgrades that meet the future vision of the city based on forecasted changes in demographics and needs.
