THE DAVIS ISLANDS VIEW NEWSLETTER
Welcome to the August issue of the Islands View newsletter. Summer has flown by and with school right around the corner it is a great time to get a few events on your calendar. Take a look at the information below and see what interests you. I hope you enjoy this edition and have a great Back to School Month!
Roy Jenkins Pool = Year Round Fun
The Mayor’s City of Tampa 2017 budget has come out and with much enthusiasm the Roy Jenkins Pool has been identified to be open Year Round! A special thanks to the Islands residents that pushed for this to become a reality. In particular, thank you to Councilman Harry Cohen who supported this as a priority for Tampa residents.
Need a Restroom?
How many times have you been enjoying time at the DI Dog Park, Seaplane Basin or the beach and had to GO!!!!
We have a great opportunity to have restrooms installed down at Seaplane Basin Park BUT we need your help. With the 2017 budget decisions in full swing we need all hands on deck!
Send a quick email to all City Council members and the Mayor requesting their support.
Emails must be received between now and the September 7th budget hearing
The specific request is: Please support funding for restrooms at Seaplane Basin Park.
