New Riviera Bay Park Update Next Public Forum Oct 8 - 7pm at Holy Family Catholic School, 200 78th Ave NE

T

he City held the 1st of 3 public forum meetings to discuss the closed Rio Vista Elementary School property located off 83rd Ave NE and Macoma Ave, being turned into a neighborhood park. We had a large crowd, but a majority of the people that attended from the other two nearby neighborhoods voiced their opposition to every amenity being proposed in the new park. Some said a park would lower their property values, nobody would use it, and it would just bring crime into their neighborhoods. We believe just the opposite would happen and that this much-needed area park would be a wonderful addition to our area. If you feel like we do about this

Rio Vista Park Update The City of St. Petersburg is working diligently on the Rio Vista Park proposal. A revised conceptual plan has been developed and is included in this newsletter. The key revisions include: • The existing fence along Siquita and its return to the west along a portion of 81st Avenue will remain. • The Renaissance neighborhood will continue to maintain the plantings and irrigation outside the fence. There will be no access. through the fence. • 81st Avenue North will be closed, but not vacated, and removable bollards will be placed on both the east and west ends. • The basketball court will move away from the large metal shelter toward the north and west, and the tennis court will move from the southern border to the north closer to the church. There will be no practice backboard on the tennis courts. The revised site plan is posted on the Parks and Recreation website for your convenience and the next public meeting will be held on October 8, 2012, at 7:00 pm.

13TH Annual Joshua House Toy Drive by Debby Obst Each year our family submits this reminder about collecting toys for the children of Joshua House. In the 13 years that have passed I would like to again thank all the RBCA neighbors who have graciously donated over the years. Things have changed slightly at Joshua House; the state now places older less adoptable children of Joshua House, children who are having a harder time getting placed in a permanent home. With the economic difficulty of our country more children are coming into the system then are going out, there

are not enough families out there to foster or adopt them. Florida ranks 3rd in the country with the number of children in foster care (19,100), 1755 kids alone in Pinellas county with only 461 beds for them to be placed *. Places like Joshua House are so needed. The goal at Joshua House is to give each child a few new items and clothes to make their holiday as special as it can be. We are asking RBCA neighbors to help by buying NEW games, sporting equipment, gift certificates (Target & Wal-Mart) and clothes for boys and girls ages 10-17 years old. Some of these

teens leave straight from Joshua House and start living by themselves, on their own (called aging out in the system) so boxed sets of plates, sheets, kitchen utensils and any household items are also appreciated. My heart breaks to think that these older children will be adults someday without a mom or dad to spend holidays and special occasions with but we can all make a difference now in their lives so please contribute. These items can be dropped off at the RBCA Thanksgiving Dinner or anytime at 9399 Oak St NE between now and December 11th. If you have any questions you can call Debby or Lance at 727 578-9718 or 727 742-3043. We hope this will be another awesome year for the Joshua House Toy Drive and we highly appreciate your kind support and very big hearts!!!

Ways To Save Tampa Bay

T

he Tampa Bay Estuary is home to some 2,000,000 people. Our efforts to save the bay depend on each and every resident. Even those of us who live miles away from the bay have an effect on its health. 1.The most important and simple rule to follow is don’t dispose of anything in the canal, storm drains, or street curbs. You may think that your grass, leaves, fruit, dog poop, etc, will harmlessly disappear just because you can’t see it anymore when it rains or the tide changes, but that couldn’t be further from the truth for a number of reasons. While anything organic is degrading, it is releasing nitrogen and/ or other chemicals that take away oxygen and promote the growth of algae. 2. Reduce or stop using toxic products. Even common household cleaners contain hazardous chemicals that can pollute the bay and taint our groundwater supplies. Instead, use environmentally friendly substitutes when possible. 3. When you can’t avoid using hazardous materials, make sure you dispose of them properly. Don’t dump motor oil, paints, or cleaners down storm drains or gutters. 4. When boating in the bay, use marked channels whenever possible to avoid running aground in shallow seagrass beds that can be easily damaged by boat propellers. 5. If you live on the water, avoid pruning mangroves -- which provide critical habitat for fish and wildlife and filter pollutants from the water. 6. Make a commitment to drive less and walk, carpool or bicycle more. Automobiles contribute to air pollution that is a source of nearly one-third of the bay’s nitrogen burden. This nitrogen causes algae

blooms that cloud the water and deplete it of oxygen. 7. Properly dispose of or recycle unwanted monofilament fishing line that can entangle and kill birds and other wildlife. 8. Conserve water. Take shorter showers, use the dishwasher less

often, and obey lawn-watering restrictions. 9. Be a giver, not a taker. Use less of everything -- water, energy, chemicals -- and use it more wisely. Give back to the bay by participating in a shoreline cleanup or habitat restoration project.

RBCA Presents A Check to Brighton School

ecause we could never have won the $2,500 quarterly award for Best Neighborhood Project, or cleaned up as much as we did at our 2012 Canal Clean-up without all the many volunteers from Brighton School, the RBCA presented a check for $1,250 to the Principal of Brighton, Faith Smith, at our July 26th meeting, because that school is in desperate need of new textbooks and supplies.
