Have you wished that our community pool would be open year round. The Davis Islands Civic association in coordination with Islands residents are working to make this a reality. If you desire a year round pool feel free to send a quick note of support to our Tampa City Councilman Harry Cohen (CJo.Ford@tampagov.net) The community is working with Councilman Cohen and the Mayor’s office to help both raise funds for the necessary heaters, as well as have annual long-term budget support to sustain the pool for year round service. Also, if you are interest in helping on this project please contact the Davis Islands Civic Association at firstname.lastname@example.org.
