Toll Rate Rule Development

 

The Florida Department of Transportation (Department) is hosting a Toll Rate Rule Development Workshop to provide the public an opportunity to review and comment on proposed amendments to Rule 14-15.0081, Florida Administrative Code. This includes the proposal of new toll rates for the Department segment of the Wekiva Parkway in Orange, Lake and Seminole Counties and amended toll rates for the First Coast Expressway in Clay and Duval Counties. Finally, as a result of the toll plaza removal on the Martin B. Anderson Beachline Expressway owned by Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX), the CFX toll will be collected at the Turnpike’s Beachline West Toll Plaza in addition to the Turnpike’s toll. The new toll rate for the Turnpike’s Beachline West Toll Plaza will reflect this combined toll rate.

 

PUBLIC WORKSHOP
The Toll Rate Rule Development Public Workshop will be held on Thursday, March 5, 2015 at 6:00 PM


This workshop will be held as a webinar, or live presentation, over the internet.

Adopt a Fire Station

 

December 24th found many of the Wedgefield residents converging on Fire Station 86 carrying platters, casseroles and plates of delicious food and sweets.  For the second year we participated in the Orange County “Adopt a Fire Station” program sponsored by Mayor Teresa Jacobs.  We know we are very fortunate to have a Station located in our community and we want the Firemen to know that they are appreciated.  They are the “First Responders” if there is a fire or medical emergency and many residents know firsthand that they are quick to respond.

 

One thing few know is that they are not allowed to leave the community to do a simple thing such as grocery shop unless they can get another station to “stand by” for them while they are out of the community.  Have you ever started to cook something only to realize that you were missing an ingredient?  Better not happen at the Fire Station!  If they forget to bring something in on their way for their two day shift they are out of luck.  They can’t go to a neighbor and “borrow” a cup of sugar.  Their neighbors live too far away.  They are limited to shopping at the Citco station on Macon.

 

While it is great to remember them during the holidays, we should show them we really appreciate what they stand for and do to insure the safety of our community during the entire year.

Bayanihan at Wedgefield2015 New Year's Eve Party

Dear Bayanihan at Wedgefield Members and Friends,

 

If you attended the wonderful New Year's Eve Celebration at the Gandola residence, you know that we started the year off with a bang, great food, music and dancing.

 

I would like to thank the Gandola Family for hosting the New Year's Eve celebration and everyone who participated, helped, organized, and supported the event.

 

I would also like to thank Jonathan Toves for his leadership, the 2014 Officers for their hard work this past year, and the many members that supported and participated.

 

Looking back through 2014 with Bayanihan, you can see by the event photos below that it was busy with activity.

 

Looking forward, I see an opportunity for Bayanihan at Wedgefield to do extraordinary things for our members, kapitbahay, and community. The possibilities are only limited by our imagination and resources.

 

I invite you to look at the possibilities and the future of Bayanihan at Wedgefield at the next general membership meeting. I look forward to hearing your feedback so together we can plan the future of Bayanihan at Wedgefield.

 

Sincerely,

 

Victor Alzona

Neighborhood Watch

This Month Neighborhood Watch Information will continue to be published in an ongoing effort to keep our community informed on crime watch matters.

 

During the last half of JANUARY to the present date of FEBRUARY 15, 2015 based on Orange County Sheriff’s crime statistics and individual reports not yet reflected in the statistics there has been 1 RESIDENTIAL burglary, on BANCROFT in the 4300 block. Additionally, we had 5 auto burglaries, one in the 20100 block of MARLIN ST and one in the 2200 Block of ABNEY AVE, and one in the 2300 Block of ALABASTER, and one in the 2500 Block of BALLARD AVE, and one in the 19000 Block of SOMERSET ST. Additionally, we had a vehicle stolen in the 2300 Block of ALABASTER.

 

The listed residential burglary was to a shed and the perpetrators took a generator along with several items for lawn maintenance. It is important to note that none of the vehicles that had burglaries were locked. As long as we continue to leave our vehicles unlocked we will continue to have the burglaries. By doing so we are training the next generation of burglars that will continue to ply the methods learned for bigger rewards.

Citizens On Patrol

Can I Park here or there?
 

When I am out on patrol I sometimes see vehicles parked in violation of ORANGE COUNTY ORDINANCE 85-1 CHAPTER 35 and I may issue a courtesy ticket (warning ticket with no fine) to let the vehicle owner know that they are in violation.

 
Occasionally the owner may see me writing a courtesy ticket and they may ask me if they can park here or there? My answer will depend on the parking violation I observe and the situation. The majority of the vehicle owners I have spoken with are not aware of ORANGE COUNTY ORDINANCE 85-1 CHAPTER 35 and are happy to get an explanation from me of why they are in violation of the ordinance. The majority of the vehicle owners are happy to quickly remedy the situation to prevent a parking ticket.
 

During my patrols I have noticed that the majority of the parking violations in Wedgefield are due to vehicles parked on or blocking sidewalks and vehicles parked on or blocking the bicycle lane / path.

Calling All Green Thumbs

February 5th the Garden Club of Wedgefield met at the Country Club meeting room.  Lee Breedlove, leader of the year, was the presenter this month, also.  After business and orders were taken for lunch, Lee told all about the origins of the pink grapefruit in Manatee Co., FL., and the subsequent discovery of the red grapefruit in Texas. It was interesting to discover that the red grapefruit can be propagated from a seed!  Several forms of grapefruit were given as door prizes, Janis Thaw brought cuttings from a cactus and Lee had packages of white sunflowers to give out, as well.

Next month, Adelaide Catania will give a program on Tomatoes and composting. Please come out and support your local garden club with you attendance! We welcome you!  Mark your calendar for March 5th at 11:00. Please come early so we can start on time. See you then!

Firewise Communities

Warmer weather is on its way with the dry and cold winter in the past.  This winter weather of the past months has created a great deal of fuel in the Wedgefield area which we need to clear out before fire season starts again.  With that in mind, here are some reminders on how to reduce the fuel on your property.

In Firewise landscapes, there are 4 zones, with Zone 1 being closest to a structure and Zones 2 - 4 move progressively further away.

Zone 1 - this is a well irrigated area encircling the structure for at least 30’ on all sides, providing for space for fire suppression equipment in the event of an emergency.  Plantings should be limited to carefully spaced fire resistant species.

Zone 2 - Fire resistant plants should be used here also, and should be low growing and the irrigation system should extend into this section

Zone 3 - Low- growing plants and well-spaced trees in this area, remembering to keep the volume of vegetation (fuel) low.

Zone 4 - This furthest zone from the structure is a natural area, thin selectively here and remove highly flammable vegetation.

Community Emergency Response Team

 

CERT Training


On Saturday October 11th, 21 members of the Wedgefield CERT group met with Mr. Jack Tracy of the Florida Health Department who is in charge of the Orange County Neighborhood Emergency Preparedness Program (NEPP). Mr. Tracy introduced the team to Mr. Jim Mauney and his wife Kim. Mr. Mauney is a Professional Trainer who has trained Firemen, Law Enforcement Personnel as well as numerous CERT groups and Kim is a Certified EMT who is currently employed by the Corrections Department.
 

Mr. Mauney went into detail about the various parts of a NEPP and CERT components from the Incident Command thru the teams in the field and how they all blend together. He led the attendees through a simulated tornado in Wedgefield in a table top exercise and then explained how good record keeping is extremely helpful to the Fire Department personnel and other professional responders. He put the attendees through some very interesting team building exercises and worked on radio communication procedures.
 

The entire day was interesting, informative and motivating. This is just one more part of the training that the volunteers do so that they are ready to help their neighbors and the other residents of Wedgefield in the event of a disaster.
