BSIA was formed to provide a means for residents and owners of property in Burnt Store Isles to jointly promote the continual
improvement of the neighborhood.
Our organization has a commitment to the quality of life, and appearance, in our neighborhood.
BSI Underground Wiring Initiative
The results of the straw ballot were released and the results speak for themselves. Ballots were mailed to 1248 BSI property owners on
March 2nd, with a deadline for submission of April 15th. A total of 941 voted ballots were received at the City Clerk's office with 932 received ballots being properly executed as follows:
YES – 181 Votes (19.42%)
NO – 751 Votes (80.58%)
City Council will discuss the results of the Straw Ballot at their May 6 meeting.
Special thanks to Chick Petrosino, chair of the Underground Wiring Committee, and all the members of the Committee, who were charged five years ago by the community with the task of investigating the feasibility of converting our overhead utilities to underground. I believe they fulfilled their fiduciary responsibility very well, endeavoring to the best of their abilities to do so always through coherent, collegial and collective participation.
Now that the community has made their decision, the BSIA Board will follow the stated wishes and recommend that City Council not move forward with the proposal.
Breaking news: the speed limit on Tripoli between Monaco and Madrid has been reduced to 25mph.
You will see more speed limits signs around BSI. The current speed limit throughout BSI is 30 mph but cars are often seen exceeding that especially down the busier streets.
The Board has been working with the Punta Gorda Police Department to brainstorm ways to remind drivers to watch their speed. Two of the solutions were increased patrol cars around BSI and the radar cart currently set up on Tripoli. The radar cart will be moved to other places in BSI where excessive speed is an issue.
Also, we received approval to install more speed limit signs as reminders too. Click the link below to see an article which was in the April 24th issue of the Daily Sun explaining why we felt this was necessary.
Just another way your Association is working hard for you!
