Another Old Homosassa Update
Hey, I write things. And now it’s time to update them!
First, the winners of the Scavenger Hunt sponsored by the Old Homosassa Heritage Council!
Everyone that I talked to about the race thought it was FUN, FUN, FUN!
Now, on a more serious note. Things that will make Old Homosassa better…..
The post I wrote about Old Homosassa Goes to Tallahassee back in April. Both groups, “Access to the River” and “Homosassa River Restoration Project” got bills passed and money in the state budget. Unfortunately, the governor vetoed the money for the restoration project.
Steve Minguy, president of the Homosassa River Restoration Project, is not giving up. In an email to concerned residents, Steve thanked Senator Simpson and Representative Massullo for their support but the group is not waiting for next year to ask for money from the state. They are staying active. He will be setting up a community meeting plus putting together a brochure. In addition, he is looking for a “good grant writer”.
I’m disappointed. The commissioners unanimously voted for Crystal River saying that the boardwalk idea has been discussed for 24 years! The chairperson of our group, Roger Cullen, got up to say that Old Homosassa has been trying to get a park on the river for 70 years.
Anyhow, that’s where we are now. I’ll update you as the park progresses–that’s what I’m here for!
