MARCH 2017 11 Long Range Plan for the Future of Pelican Cove By Brian Baxter Some 125 Pelican Cove residents gathered on a cool morning early in January in the Pelican Pavilion to participate in a community forum on the future of Pelican Cove hosted by the Planning Committee This forum was designed to provide an opportunity for members of our community to weigh in on the issues being considered by the Planning Committee for inclusion in its Long Range Plan due to the board early in February The forum was organized into discussions around twelve round tables at which participants discussed 21 page issue papers that included questions designed to get these discussions started These tables were organized around the broad goals of the Long Range Plan The participants at each table were given from two to five issues for their input into the final plan and with two 45 minute discussion sessions that morning at the forum residents could choose to weigh in on two separate sets of issues Members of the board committee chairs committee members and resident volunteers gave of their time and energies to chair these discussion groups or record the major conclusions or comments made at each of the round table discussions The buzz in the big room at the Pelican Pavilion that morning was incredible I will never forget the picture of so many residents hunched down in serious conversation and debate over a wide range of issues affecting our collective future in this special community This type of outreach and involvement of so many residents in the planning process is one example of what makes our community so special The Planning Committee then reviewed the reports from the 24 discussions at this community forum as a key part of developing specific recommendations to the board on the 18 issues that survived this planning process The Planning Committee also incorporated into the final recommendations the feedback received from the four committees that have been part of the planning process from its beginning in April 2016 the Grounds Committee the Harbor Committee the Buildings Facilities Committee and the Bay Water Environmental Committee The Long Range Plan for the Future of Pelican Cove was presented to the board at its workshop meeting on Tuesday February 7 and at its formal meeting on Tuesday February 14 the board adopted a resolution accepting receipt of the Long Range Plan The board is likely to continue this process by asking the committees involved in the planning process to review the recommendations in the plan and provide the board with their advice on how best to implement the various recommendations The Long Range Plan can be viewed by going onto the Pelican Cove website look for it under the Planning Committee section of the Boards and Committees tab Every Pelican Cove resident now has an opportunity to become acquainted and involved with the issues and recommendations for action that are designed to preserve and enhance the quality of life here in our special community Your thoughts and opinions on the issues contained in the Long Range Plan are valued Take a look at the agendas for upcoming meetings of the Committees that are posted on the bulletin boards just outside of our management office Pelican Pavilion and at the Harbor Club and participate as a guest at any of these committee meetings Beginning in the fall of this year the Planning Committee will review the recommendations of the Climate Change Adaptation Study that is scheduled to be submitted to our community in May These recommendations will be incorporated into the required annual update to this Long Range Plan that will be submitted by the Planning Committee to the board in February of 2018 The members of the Planning Committee invite you to attend our meetings and share your ideas suggestions and comments on the Long Range Plan You can also share your ideas by going to the Planning Committee s home page on the Pelican Cove website where you will find a link saying Send a Message to the Committee Long Range Plan The 2017 Long Range Plan for the Future of Pelican Cove by the Planning Committee is now available on the PC website Go to pelicancovecondo com Board Committees Planning Committee and Policies Documents New Owners NEWCOMER Peter Bestenbostel Ann Hunsicker Anthony DeLuca Luke Rebecca Jaeger Gary Cheryl Kiesler Jerry Elberta McVicker UNIT GR245 GL320 TR109 GR220 TR117 FROM CITY STATE COUNTRY Richmond VT 05477 Sarasota FL 34231 Bradenton FL 34207 Lexington KY 40513 Sarasota FL 34231
