Due to a schedule conflict at the Venice Community Center, this months’s member meeting is at the South Venice Yacht Club. The speaker is Jeff Devine and the topic is the Inner Coastal Waterway. It’s still a potluck so bring something to share. To get there from take 41 to Baffin One block North of Alligator, go West on Baffin, it becomes Yacht Club Drive after Shamrock. Park around the back.
Jeff Devine , the Projects Coordinator for the West Coast Inland Navigation District , (this includes our area of the Intracoastal and our bays) will present an overview of the history of the Navigation District from it’s initial purpose to it’s ongoing role and expanded capacities in the function of local waterways. He will present an overview of projects in our area such as Snake Island restoration as well as the Boca Train Trestle dredging project, and an update on future projects in the works. He will also have some interesting historical photos of our Intracoastal waters for us to enjoy.
