POLICE WORK IN RIO VISTA AND LOOKING AT THE RECORDS

POLICE WORK IN RIO VISTA AND LOOKING AT THE RECORDS

SUBMITTED BY CHRISTINA CURRIE, ESQ.

15 MONTHS & 52 ARRESTS!! THANK YOU FLPD & PROTECT RIO VISTA!!

Recently I have witnessed and heard of some Rio Vista residents questioning the seriousness of the work the Protect Rio Vista Patrol/Fort Lauderdale Police officers are doing in our neighborhood. In an attempt to quantify the work FLPD does for our neighborhood I performed a public records request where I requested “a list of individuals who were arrested in Rio Vista in or arrested outside of our neighborhood from 8/24/2017 to 12/5/2018 where the arrest was stemming from "alleged criminal acts" that took place in Rio Vista”.

The result was 52 arrests in the past 15 months (as of 12/5/18). Here is a summary of the arrests, recognizing arrestees are innocent until proven guilty:

  • 11 arrests were for Driving Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol and 1 of those was a 2nd offense
  • 7 arrests were for Burglary Related Charges
  • 5 arrests were for Grand Theft of a Motor Vehicle or for Grand Theft $300 - $5,000
  • 12 of the 52 arrests were of a person 17 or under, the youngest being 13.
  • The month with the highest number of arrests was January 2018 with 7 arrests.
  • 2 arrests were for Domestic Violence Related charges
  • 15 of the 52 arrestees were Female

FDOT Considering Pedestrian Bridge Across New River

Meeting Cancelled

FDOT has cancelled the project to consider a pedestrian crossing over the New River!

Vice Mayor Sorensen posted this on FaceBook this morning:  FDOT was exploring the possibility of an expensive pedestrian bridge over the New River. I encouraged the City Commission to oppose it and to communicate our unanimous opposition to this proposal. We did, FDOT heard us and FDOT has withdrawn the project. Thank you FDOT!

 

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Four is hosting a Public Meeting to learn about the Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for the New River Pedestrian Crossing project. A PD&E study is FDOT's process to evaluate the social, economic and environmental impacts associated with a planned transportation improvement project. The purpose of this study is to develop and evaluate design concepts for a pedestrian /bicyclist crossing across the New River in the area of US 1/South Federal Highway.

Cordova Rd Seawall Construction and New Dock Permit Ordinance

9th and cordova

The city conducted a public meeting on February 26 (presentation below) to discuss and receive public input on the seawall replacement along Cordova Rd. and the proposed new Dock Use Permit ordinance.  Significant changes were made to the proposed ordinance from the first discussion at the Marine Advisory Board.   The primary one was clarifying that ONLY the upland parcel property owner would be eligible to apply for a permit.  Previously, neighboring parcels would be given that opportunity as well.  The new language only allows for neighboring parcel owners to apply if there is no direct upland parcel (think street ends.).  You can read the full ordinance below with the public discussion link.  The next step will be another hearing with the Marine Advisory Board.  We will post time and date when available.
