City Paving Schedule

Members,

From our November Board meeting there was a request to our Councilwoman on how to find out WHEN your street will be paved. Here is the response for her assistant below:

It was a pleasure meeting you last night. As we discussed the City has a 10-year Repaving Master Plan and an Asphalt Rejuvenation Program. The Repaving Plan has been in place for many years and we have a website that discussed the plan and provides the full Master Plan: www.cityofpsl.com/repaving

Additionally, there is an interactive map that shows the schedule for roadways to be repaved and rejuvenated: https://pslgis.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=6f62f2ba8029429f97d7912a4a7cf2bc On the interactive map, there are different selections on the layers pop-out that can show the streets and when they are scheduled.

As far as the Rejuvenation Program, the City is working to extend the life of our roadways with asphalt rejuvenation. The program started in 2022 and rejuvenates our roadways with reclamite emulsion, a penetrating sealer that helps protect asphalt from damage due to exposure to elements.  The Public Works Department contracts with Pavement Technology, Inc. to rejuvenate roadways throughout the City with the sealer.  The sealer used is a standard product that has been used successfully on roadways since 1970 and meets or exceeds all EPA, federal, state, local and industry performance requirements. By implementing this program, Public Works helps reduce the future costs of repaving, saves taxpayers money, extends the life expectancy of a roadway, and helps ensure a smooth ride on roadways for years to come. Please see the links below for more information and a Frequently Asked Questions section. I also included two videos that help residents understand the project and process.

The Saints Golf Course is Open!

Happy Holidays! We’re excited to share fantastic news! The Saints Golf Course has officially reopened with all 18 holes ready for play as of December 4, 2023. 
Since May 1, 2023, the course has been partially closed to carry out essential drainage work. However, we are pleased to announce that the driving range has reopened on November 20, 2023, and the course is now fully open. We want to thank all our members and guests for their patience throughout this project year.    Although the course is open, work still needs to be completed on the back nine holes. There are several areas in the golf course where the cart paths still need asphalt repair, and some sections of the fairway require the addition of grass sod. The maintenance work on these areas is ongoing and will be completed in the next few weeks. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Since the driving range has re-opened, business has steadily increased daily. Both members and guests enjoy hitting off the new artificial turf along with the latest range amenities such as dividers, bag stands, club washers, range targets, and benches. Management plans to introduce more exciting items to the range in the coming months. Stay tuned for more!    We recently performed special fairway work on a few of the front nine holes, which might have caught everyone’s attention. This work enhanced the drainage project and involved adding a sub-surface drainage system to help manage water runoff collected below the turf surface. This newly added system is connected to the drainage system, which will route all collected water to our ponds or swales. This process will maintain proper moisture control in certain areas of the fairways, thereby ensuring high-quality turf conditions.

Thank you to all who attended the Soiree

The Pulse – November’s City Roundup

Sandpiper’s Kim Penning Receives Award

Last Tuesday, the Port St Lucie Police Dept held its third quarter recognition ceremony for outstanding leadership.

For the “Volunteer of the Quarter” the award went to Sandpiper’s Kim Penning.

Kim is Captain of the Sandpiper Bay Volunteer squad of volunteers for our Community Patrol.

The Sandpiper Bay Community Patrol is managed by the PSL Police and staffed by volunteer from here. It was the first in PSL going back to the 1990’s.

It is a show of police presence in our area, deterring potential illegal activity, observing in non-HOA areas that we are in compliance with city code, and simply being eyes and ears, reporting anything suspicious.

Please say thank you to Kim when you see her! And…the patrol is looking to grow its volunteers with the goal of a patrol car on the street 3 time a day seven days a week. To do that she needs to add some volunteers to the team. Talk to her if you can spare 2 hours a week.

Sandpiper Bay Community Patrol

COMMUNITY PATROL IN SANDPIPER BAY

Needs Volunteers

Your Community Patrol is an extension of, and managed by, the Port St. Lucie Police.  It is voluntarily staffed by members of the Sandpiper Bay Community. Teams regularly patrol their districts acting as a deterrent and extra set of eyes to potential crime. They also periodically perform Close House Watch for area residents who request this service when going away.

Each team has their own dedicated car and assigned patrol areas.  Time commitment is only 2 hours per week. The days and times are flexible, and each team member is partnered with someone who has a similar day/time preference such as morning, afternoon, or evening including weekends.

Community Patrol members must meet the guidelines and successfully complete the required training prescribed by the Port St. Lucie Police Department to qualify as a Volunteer Community Patrol Member.

Members must pass fingerprinting and background checks prior to participating and successfully complete classroom and vehicle training.

 Next scheduled training will be held October 23-26, 2023.

Your Community Patrol needs your help!

Our GOAL Is to have he squad on the street in the morning, afternoon, and evening, 7 days a week.  To do that we need more volunteers.  All we need is 2 hours a week of your time.
