Historic Archeological Treasures

Problems or Treasures?

The Jupiter Historic Resources Board needs your voice.

The Inlet Village has been the site of many archeological digs with significant findings from late Archaic 1100 through 300 BC. Are those problems or treasures? What can one do with these discoveries? We asked a few Jupiter Historical Resources Board members (HRB).

“I feel that these findings should be valued as a real potential and golden opportunity for a museum quality village,says an HRB member. “Today, many towns have put efforts into integrating the past into new structures to bring successfully unique aspects of the past of their town. The use of our archeological findings could potentially elevate the area to an achievement of global interest and significant cultural recognition and asset.” Lighthouse Museum president, Jamie Stuve feels that this would be a complement to the museum.

Asking other Inlet Village Residents answers were: “We are concerned about overdevelopment,” “Traffic is horrendous,” or “We love our Inlet, the town of Jupiter redevelopment is destroying our village.” “I like that we can walk and bike, but the incessant traffic and drag racings at certain hours are unbearable, we want our village back,” and  “What the town is doing is unconstitutional, they are taking our neighborhood and refusing to listen to residents.”

So, rather than an over-commercialized Funky Village with problematic traffic, parking issues, and angry residents, could one change the course feared? Along with the Loxahatchee river rich past, the estuary and inlet archeology, abundant outdoor resources, historic lighthouse and Celestial Roadway, could a carefully designed plan and vision by a neutral, qualified professional firm, preserve the uniqueness of the Inlet Village? Could this resolve the constant arguments between, residents, developers and the Town of Jupiter? According to the Palm Beach County History Online and Bob Carr renown archeologist for the Miami Circle: “The Inlet Village has significant archeological findings from late Archaic 1100 through 300 BC,” and could obtain National Historic Landmark designation.

If you have questions, want answers and think along those lines, on December 18th, 2017, at 7 PM, at Town Hall, the HRB (Historic Resources Board) will deliberate about a new development on A1A. This meeting will be open to public comments. Your verbal and letters of support could assist and motivate the HRB to request that the town explore a new approach including a professional opinion from a globally recognized successful firm. Attending this meeting will give you an opportunity to voice your interest and support to such ideas and future for the Inlet Village.

Redevelopment dollars under fire

Mishandling of CRA funds in South Florida

State legislators are considering a bill that could redirect millions of dollars earmarked for improving “blighted” local communities.

The proposed bill, House Bill 13, would eliminate Community Redevelopment Agencies, governmental bodies created to promote affordable housing, economic development, health and safety in under-served neighborhoods. In a nutshell, a CRA holds on to a set percentage of the property taxes paid by residents of a community and then invests that money back into the area.

The idea is that CRAs give residents of poor and working class neighborhoods a guarantee that at least some of their taxes will be dedicated to making their lives better, and not just making the rich in other parts of town richer.

Still, recent mishandling of CRA funds in South Florida has sparked legislation that would prohibit new CRAs from being formed after July 1, prohibit CRAs from taking on any new projects or debts after Oct. 1 and eliminate all of the state’s CRAs by 2037. The legislation would also create additional oversight and reporting requirements for all CRAs statewide.

It’s being described by some as the “nuclear option.” cont

Actions in the Inlet Village

Dear Friends of the Inlet Village:

We have recently been made aware that the Citizen for Owners Rights is assisting residents to regain their rights to peaceful enjoyment of their property at Jupiter Dune.  If you wish to support them:

 

Also,  COOLS is a team trying to regain control over the Love Street Project and the Swapping Deals.

Every contribution is a fresh step toward pushing back and regaining a peaceful Inlet Village belonging to residents. In summary, many people feel that they had entrusted the town of Jupiter to conduct themselves in a civilized manner, but it has become apparent that trust isn’t this town’s mission. Please encourage and support those who are putting their neck out to defend you.

Candidate Signs

Someone reported that signs for election candidates: Teri Grooms, Carol Watson and Heidi Epstein,  have been disappearing in the Inlet Village.  Remaining signs  for Wayne Posner and Delaney leaves very little doubts about the source of the criminals behind the theft.

What is the penalty for removing a political sign?

In addition to the available criminal penalties for violating RSA chapter 664, the Legislature has established a civil penalty of up to $1,000 per violation for “removing, defacing, or destroying political advertising on private property.” RSA 664:21, VI (a)-(b).
