NORTH COUNTY NEIGHBORHOOD COALITION

2020 PRESIDENT’S COMMENTS

 

IN THESE EXTRAORDINARY TIMES UNCERTAINTY IS CLEARLY THE ONLY CERTAINTY. HOWEVER, OUR NORTH COUNTY NEIGHBORHOOD COALITION HAS BEEN FOCUSED ON OUR MEMBER SAFETY, SECURITY AND AWARENESS OF ISSUES AND THEIR RESOLUTIONS.

WHETHER IT IS COVID -19 AND THE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS OR JURISDICTIONAL ORDINANCES GIVING GUIDANCE TO OUR RESIDENTS, OR THE PROTESTS TAKING PLACE TO EXPRESS CONCERN IN POLICING OR RACIAL INJUSTICE, OUR MEMBERS HAVE EXHIBITED THE LEADERSHIP IN THEIR COMMUNITIES TO KEEP THEIR RESIDENTS INFORMED.

SEVERAL OF OUR NCNC MEMBERS (IBIS, MIRASOL) HAVE PARTICIPATED IN THE PB COUNTY COMMITTEE TO PLAN ON HOW TO REOPEN ACTIVITIES. ADDITIONALLY, PERSPECTIVES AND ADVICE HAVE BEEN SHARED WITH ELECTED OFFICIALS ON BUILDING COMMUNITY RELATIONS. TRAFFIC CONGESTION AND ROAD PLANNING WITHIN NORTH COUNTY HAS BEEN A CONSTANT DISCUSSION WITH COUNTY OFFICIALS. AS A MEMBER OF THE PALM BEACH NORTH CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, THE NCNC SPONSORED A SCHOLARSHIP FOR A DESERVING GRADUATING STUDENT.

WE HAVE DURING THE LAST 10 YEARS DEVELOPED POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS WITH GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS TO ENSURE OUR CONCERNS ARE ADDRESSED AND POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS CAN BE ADOPTED. MANY OF THE OFFICIALS REGULARLY ATTEND OUR MONTHLY AND ANNUAL MEETINGS.

WE KNOW THAT JUNE 1- NOVEMBER- 30 IS HURRICANE SEASON. THE NCNC OFFICERS HAVE SPENT MANY HOURS WITH PB COUNTY, PB GARDENS AND WPB EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTERS MANAGERS AND HAVE SECURED THEIR DOCUMENTS OUTLINING ACTIONS FOR HURRICANE READINESS AND RECOVERY. WE HAVE LISTED A LINK TO THE PALM BEACH GARDENS AND PALM BEACH COUNTY DOCUMENTS ON OUR NCNC WEBSITE.

PROUDLY, THE NCNC HAS BUILT A PLATFORM OF CREATING POSITIVE WORKING RELATIONSHIPS WITH OUR GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, ELECTED OFFICIALS, FIRST RESPONDERS, HEALTH INSTITUTIONS AND BUSINESSES.

WHILE WE DO NOT ENDORSE OR SPONSOR ANY CANDIDATES, WE TRY TO EDUCATE OUR RESIDENTS ON ISSUES AND WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO VOTE ON AUGUST 18 AND NOVEMBER 3, 2020. OUR HISTORICAL VOTING RATE FAR SURPASSES THE COUNTY AND STATE.

ALL OF WHAT WE DO IS ACCOMPLISHED BECAUSE WE HAVE COMMITTED COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP.  IF YOUR COMMUNITY  IS LOCATED  WITHIN NORTH COUNTY AND IS INTERESTED IN JOINING A VERY FUNCTIONAL RESULTS ORIENTED ORGANIZATION, VISIT OUR WEBSITE NCNCPBC.ORG TO CONTACT US.

SAL FASO, PRESIDENT, NCNC
