BELLEAIR SHORE - The mega-mansion home of Philadelphia Phillies ballplayer Ryan Howard stands out as a showplace, even in this upscale beachfront community where large homes are common.

The 17,000-square-foot home valued at close to $10 million has been a windfall for the tax base of Belleair Shore, and town officials have welcomed its construction.

But a chain-link construction fence enclosing the home on the beach side is still standing two years later, and that has caused concern. Town officials want it taken down. Commission members looked at options for addressing the issue at their Nov. 15 meeting.

BELLEAIR BEACH - Preliminary estimates prepared by a consulting engineering firm show the cost of undergrounded utilities could run $9,000 or more per home.

The estimate to underground utilities in the Donato Drive/22nd Street neighborhood was presented at the Nov. 7 City Council meeting. A recent survey showed a high percentage of residents in that neighborhood, 72 percent, want their electric wires put underground, much more so than in any other part of the city.

And that includes only Duke Energy of the three utilities involved. Also to be determined is the cost of replacing the street light poles.

It is all happening because of what has been described as a long overdue modernization program for the facility, which was built in the early ’50s, and essentially hasn’t been changed much since then.
