2017 May Day Race: Volunteers Needed

The race has directly benefited five of our neighborhood schools: Maximo Elementary, Bay Point Elementary, Bay Point Middle, Lakewood Elementary, as well as the Lakewood High School Band.

Currently, we are focused on building our volunteer pool. Every successful race depends on a healthy volunteer workforce. Our goal is to have every neighborhood from the Skyway Marina District on south involved in this event.

MEDIA ADVISORY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SEWER SYMPOSIUM: A Public Forum on the Proposed Consent Order and Wastewater Project Implementation

ST. PETERSBURG, FL (February 24, 2017) – In the continuing effort to keep citizens informed of the important infrastructure improvements ongoing in the city — and update stakeholders on the proposed Consent Order from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection — two public meetings will be held over the next several weeks.

The first meeting, scheduled for Monday, February 27 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Lake Vista Recreation Center, 1401 62nd Ave. S., will feature presentations from city staff and consultants on the work that is already underway to increase capacity and reliability of the St. Petersburg wastewater system. Attendees will also hear how the proposed Consent Order from DEP will increase accountability and oversight of the myriad projects that are planned over the next several years. The second meeting, Wednesday, March 15 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Azalea Recreation Center, 1600 72nd St. N., will highlight the same information.

Citizens are encouraged to come with ideas and inspiration on how the city can effectively move forward through this sewage situation and emerge with a more robust and environmentally secure future. There will be a time allotted for one-on-one discussions with leadership on hand and also a forum for suggestions to be “even better” down the road.

It is hoped that these meetings will feature a frank and honest discussion of how we can ALL be a part of the solution.

Letter from Treasurer

Hi Maximo Moorings neighbors! As we wind down the calendar year, we’re actually only about half way
through our annual membership drive. I am so pleased that ~50% of our Maximo households are members of
our Civic Association. This is a 6% increase from last year. Thank you, thank you, thank you! While I know 100%
membership is unrealistic, my goal is to continue to grow membership.

Are you one of our neighbors that simply forgot to send in your membership fee, or perhaps you’re not sure?
If so, this article is FOR YOU! So what category do you fall in?

1. Paid Member?  Thank you!
2. Don’t know if you’ve paid?  Drop me an email and I’ll look it up ( treasurer@maximo-moorings.com )
3. Not yet paid?  You can pay online via this website or mail your check to:

Maximo Moorings Civic Association
4905 34th Street South Box 207
Saint Petersburg, FL 33711

Becoming a member of your Maximo Moorings Civic Association at a mere $30 a year, enables continued
improvements in YOUR community. So where does your annual membership fee go? It covers a variety of
initiatives that contribute to beautifying our surroundings and bringing us together as a community. Expenses include things such as:

  • Lawn Maintenance (mowing, treatment)
  • Printing (our quarterly beacons and annual directory) and Postage
  • Landscaping (flowers, mulch and more mulch)
  • Replacement of the Flag in Fuller Circle every four to six months
  • Electricity to light our entrances and flag
  • Repair and upkeep for things that are damaged such as lights, sprinklers
  • Advertising (garage sale, annual meeting)
  • Community events (Fall Fest, Annual Meeting, December Hay Ride)

Do you have ideas on how your Civic Association can improve our neighborhood? We’d love to hear from you!

Send an email to treasurer@maximo-moorings.com

Thank you for your support!

Best wishes!
Susan Russo, Treasurer

Pride Weekend

Pride Weekend at Flamingo June 25 & 26

Jack Dougherty contacted Maximo to provide a notice of activities at Flamingo next weekend:

This is the largest Pride celebration in Florida and given the events In Orlando we believe it will be the busiest Pride event to date.

At 12:30 AM on Sunday June 26th we will have 2 American Idol contestants performing at Flamingo — Blake Lewis and Elliott Yamin.  This will coincide with the parade ending downtown and will allow guests/customers to return to Flamingo for the concert.

We will do as much as we possibly can to keep the volume in check but we will like to request your patience with us during this time.

In addition, the parking at both the Skyway Mall and Marina Village will be full as we have shuttles running between Flamingo and the Pride event on both Saturday and Sunday.

Any issues or concerns please call us (727-321-5000)
