BocaWatch’s mission is to inform, educate and create dialogue in support of responsible, sustainable growth in Boca Raton. We are dedicated to preserving the beauty and quality of life in our city while encouraging economic development to flourish. We continue to strive to strengthen the awareness of the citizens regarding matters of city governance, and we stand ready to fight the fights necessary to continue and protect the traditions, attractions and charm of our picturesque city.
Thank you for the invitation to attend your meeting last night. I was very impressed with organization, and all the people. There is no doubt in my mind that BocaWatch is the best means of having Boca Raton again feel like our ‘hometown’, a place where we belong. Please feel free to contact me if there is ever anything in which I can do to assist your efforts. I look forward to working closely with you in the future.
I find BocaWatch very informative in keeping me up to date with issues of our city. Thank you.
I find that no one in the City remembers when Boca Raton Community Hospital, came before the city to build a parking garage. Spanish Oaks to the east of the property complain that it would block the SUN from their property. Boca Hospital was denied the building of the garage. I am sure that some of the City council and the City attorney remember this. Bob Trinka
I am glad BocaWatch is keeping an eye on the proposed changes to our city and keeping us informed. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Thank you for keeping us updated. It’s hard sometimes to find out what is really going on at a local level unless you attend the meetings. Thank you.
A shout out to BocaWatch! Many thanks for providing the concerned citizens of Boca with the latest information about town issues, a venue for the discussion of those issues and most importantly, a feeling of hope that together we can have a strong voice in the future of our city! Keep up the good work!
I wrote to the city council and planning and zoning board urging that the Chabad project is stopped. I encourage other residents to do the same. This is an island and there are no other structures like this anywhere on the island. There is no precedent for this project to move forward. The traffic, parking and other concerns are valid.
The citizens voices are not being heard. I attended the meeting last week and heard numerous concerns from people like myself who live on the island. The Chabad project must be stopped. This type of building and traffic cannot be tolerated on this tiny island. It is destructive to our quality of life and the future of this coastal beach area of Boca Raton. This is not east Boca. It is an island and that is how it should be treated.
Here Here George.. Thank you your involvement and yes I do agree with you, that the citizens are either ill informed of upcoming meetings or totally unaware of items coming up for vote that effect the future of our city. I praise you and Boca Watch for the job being done. Thank you a concerned resident of Boca Raton, Bruce Friedman
This project must not be allowed to happen,it will add so much additional traffic and conjeston to what is being atready overpopulated by the additional apartments that are being built on east palmettopark rd, that it truely will bring so much extra traffic that our beautiful neighborhood will be over run with cars and pedestrians, that our secure area will not safe anymore for our families.We do not have a guard gate, or gates, or security cameras, at this time ,but it will be necessary to install them at considerable expense , to keep our privacey and security, which is why we live here, and pay the taxes that we do so that we can have our safe enviorment.Please do not expose us to this extra burden we are still trying get used to the 350 plus new apartments that are under construction now just on the west side of the Palmetto Park Rd Bridge bridge and now a 26,000 sf parking garage is being requested, how many more cars will that add?.There are acres and acres further west , that could easily accomodate such traffic,,please do not choke us any further and ruin our beautiful Beach community
Thank you Boca Watch! Residents voices are not being listened to at the city level! Thank you for keeping us informed and up-to-date. We appreciate your time and efforts!
Mr gore We went thru same thing when we were making the ocean strand development…same developer, same architect etc. You are correct…it is very underhanded politics U need to hire your own person that had massive experience in the city planning n codes Eric plus an attorney. Our attorney came from the west coast of Fla as no attorney in.Palm beach county nor broward were willing to help. You can reach me direct if u want via my email on here. I, personally, have no trust in our current city council. We lost the only people’s representative when we lost Anthony Mahgess. All the rest are puppets with vested interests.
Been waiting for a BOCA WATCHDOG for 23 years ,and you are a GOOD ONE THANK YOU !
