Remember, dredging the channel and the side channels to Sea Ranch, Signal Cove, Leisure Beach, Cow Creek, Yellow Point, Cape Cay and Sea Pines is the one true to life step- that one event- which can and would turn our City of Hudson Beach, Florida, into another Key West- bar-none.

We at recommend that all of these neighborhoods' delegations meet and resolve a workable plan to present for a 2nd round of dredging. One thing immediately noticeable at the Gianni's meeting was the spirit of reasonable cooperation and the feeling of, 'Look how many we are!' If we work together, it'll happen-  Seeings how this IS America, and we are Americans, we should have the sense of ownership over our immediate neighborhood- as a group of property owners with a common and just cause.
