Terry and I attended the planning board’s meeting for the helipad yesterday. (I posted about it a few weeks ago.) There were many passionate voices that spoke against the approval. Most of the issues presented were about safety, noise, environment, and the wildlife.
Mr. Hi Sierra got approval for his helipad from the planning board. But the Florida Department of Transportation has already issued Mr. Sierra a “cease and desist” for landing the helicopter on his property. It might be awhile before he actually gets to land on his helipad.
Here’s a pic of the property on Mason Creek. It’s a beautiful 15 acre parcel with a scenic view of the Chaz Wildlife Refuge. The helipad will be right in front of the blue sign.
In other news….
Yesterday’s DIY post was my last. No more sewing, quilting, painting, building, or organizing on this website. I’m still doing all of those projects but I don’t think the DIY weekly post really fits on “Just a Slice of Life in Perfect”, anymore. Everything else will still be here. Lots of local issues, restaurant reviews, photos, and meandering.
The sewing, quilting, and other assorted DIY projects will be on my site, Designs by KTGreen.
And to entice you to actually go to Designs by KTGreen, I’m doing a giveaway. I’ll be posting a tutorial for the next five Tuesdays with instructions on how to make five different totes. At the end of the series, I’ll be giving one tote away. The randomly chosen winner will get to pick which tote.
To be eligible to win, all you have to do is enter a comment.
You can comment every Tuesday during the series. So you actually have six chances to win (I started the contest this past Tuesday) and the comments will stay open for seven days. So far, I’ve had one comment. If you decide to enter, you have a pretty good chance of winning!
You can comment anything you would like to say. But be nice–my feelings are hurt easily.
Next week I’ll tell you how to make the easy-peasy tote. It’s REALLY EASY and anyone can make it.
As the Tuesdays go by, the tote will be a bit more difficult. The final tutorial on October 6th will be a bag with pockets and lining. It will be very very nice. (That’s the one you will probably want to win.) I’ll randomly pick a winner from the six weeks of comments on the following Monday, October 10th and I’ll post the winner’s name on Tuesday, October 11th.
And what’s going on in Citrus County?
