Letter from the
Issues of Concern
to Port St. John Residents
Airport and its future plans. We will continue to monitor all airport
activity and advise you of any community concerns. Port St. John has a new appointee
to the Tico airport board. His name is Russ Alarie. A resident of PSJ, Mr.
Alarie works at KSC, is a pilot, and with his extensive knowledge of aircraft and airports
is eminently qualified for the position on the board. Recently the president of the
Homeowners Association and I met with Mr. Alarie. I welcome Mr. Alaries
appointment and applaud him for taking the time and having the interest to step up and
volunteer to serve his community.
issues. Residents along Ranch roads north and south side and residents
along Kings Highway are protected by Florida State Statutes against annexation and forced
sewer service from Titusville. These residents cannot be annexed without a vote, they have
not asked for sewer service from Titusville, they have not signed a service agreement with
Titusville, and Titusville cannot compel them to do so. Should the City of Titusville send
these residents an agreement to sign, I would advise against signing it unless you want
Titusville sewer service.
The sewer services
provided to Cypress Woods residents were put in place by property owners and the developer
of Cypress Woods by means of an inter-local agreement between the developer and the City
of Cocoa and City of Titusville. Cypress Woods residents have a deed restriction
that binds them to City of Titusville sewer services by virtue of the developer/City of
Titusville/City of Cocoa inter-local agreement.
I will be talking
to county officials about future expansion of PSJs existing sewer system and will
keep PSJ residents apprised of any developments through Civic League meetings and on the
Civic League website, PSJ Civic League
sidewalks, bridges, green ways, bike paths, horse trails, skateboard, roller blade,
