The Protect Rio Vista program utilizes your subscription funds to hire off-duty Fort Lauderdale police officers to patrol in the neighborhood.  The officers are in uniform when on duty and have full authority to take official action action should a crime take place while on patrol.  The officers patrol in a marked car leased by the civic association and will be dispatched by FLPD for any 911 call recieved from the neighborhood.  Members also recieve a cell phone number by which they may contact the patrol officers directly while they are on duty.  Members also recieve the opportunity to request a vacation check of their home when they are out of town. 

 

We currently have 300 households out of the 1,000 homes in Rio Vista participating.  This allows us to schedule the patrol for approximately 8 hours per day 365 days per year.  Please follow this link for additional details.

Seawall Ordinance Revised

The originally propsed Seawall Ordinance has been revised in preparation for the first of two readings at the June 7 commission meeting.

The major changes from the original proposal are:

       Adds definitions for seawall, North American Vertical Datum and rip rap;

       Sets a minimum seawall elevation at 3.9 feet NAVD88 (current allowable max);

       Recommends design of seawall for future height adjustment;

       Sets an allowable maximum height of the seawall based on a property’s base flood elevation;

       Requires seawall reconstruction to the minimum elevation if the substantial repair threshold is triggered;

       Requires maintaining seawalls in good repair and sets a timeline of 365 days for completion of repairs if cited;

       Requires owners to prevent tidal waters entering their property from impacting others and sets a timeline of 365 days for remedy if cited;

       Allows fixed docks to extend 10 inches above the adjacent seawall; and

       Allows for floating docks  and requires them to be permitted and permanently attached.

Key Changes from the May 3 version presented at Commission Conference:

1)            Minor text changes in the title and preamble;

2)            Addition of a definition for Rip Rap;

3)            Allowing property owners with a finished floor elevation of less than 3.9 feet NAVD88 to seek a waiver from the City Engineer to construct a lower seawall;

4)            Technical clarification related to the impermeability of the seawall to tidal flows; and

5)            Relaxing of the requirement to design for future extension of the seawall to a recommendation for design.
