DUNEDIN - After talking about it for several years, the Dunedin City Commission Aug. 21 unanimously approved the final reading of an ordinance to rewrite the solid waste component of the Dunedin city code, which also changes trash pickup to once a week, effective Jan. 5.

It is estimated that going to one day a week for residential trash pickup will save the city $700,000 in the first year alone, according to a memo to the commission from City Manager Rob DiSpirito.

When the changes are fully implemented, it will be what the city calls a 1-1-1 system, meaning each resident will have one day a week of trash pickup, one of recyclables pickup, and one of yard waste pickup.

DUNEDIN - A 4.1-acre parcel in a location that’s prime for development in Dunedin continues to remain vacant, to the frustration of city officials.

Nevertheless, Dunedin Commissioners say the best course of action is to continue working with Pizzuti Companies, which owns more than half of the property, known as the Gateway tract, and plans to build a mixed-use project. The property is at Main Street and Milwaukee Avenue.

City commissioners voted unanimously Aug. 7 to extend a development agreement with the Pizzuti Companies to April 15 of next year in hopes that it will find a partner and secure financing for the project.

The $2,000 license fee will be paid to the city. The Brewery has held this event on its property for numerous years, and in 2009 it expended to include a portion of Douglas Avenue and operated under a revocable license agreement.

This year’s event is set to begin on Friday, Oct. 3, 5 to 11 p.m. and will continue on Saturday, Oct. 4, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. The road closure will be from noon on Friday until 7 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 4 and includes Douglas Avenue from the north entrance to the south entrance of the Keller public parking lot as well as a portion of the parking lot.

DUNEDIN - The owners of the House of Beer on Broadway see the positive side of having competition nearby: Dunedin has become a destination for craft beer lovers.

They call it “The Beermuda Triangle. Don’t get lost unless you want to.”

As the locals know, just north on Broadway is the 7venth Sun Brewery. To the east on Douglas Avenue is the Dunedin Brewery.

“I have never seen an industry where we help each other as much,” House of Beer co-owner Andy Polce said. “When 7venth Sun opened up, (2012) we were all for it. We get it; this town gets it.”

DUNEDIN - When Kim Mohr noticed she couldn’t get through the day without a nap, sometimes two, she began to worry about her health and wondered what the cause might be.

Her fatigue grew worse when she became a massage therapist. She also developed arthritis-like symptoms, including chronic joint and muscle pain, dry eyes, and digestive distress.

DUNEDIN - Coastal Properties Group International/Christie’s International Real Estate recently announced expansion plans for its Dunedin office, located at 437 Main St.

The company is taking over the space previously occupied by the tenant next door. The expansion, which will double the size of the office, is scheduled to be completed by September 2014.

“The Dunedin office is one of our most frequently visited due to its desirable downtown location and high visibility factor,” said Alex Jansen in a press release. Jansen is Coastal’s CEO and owner. “It was one of our first locations to open in 2012; and due to the additional real estate advisors joining the firm we have outgrown the original space. Acquiring the space next door will allow us to double the office size, thus enabling us to add addition conference/closing rooms and additional work space for our Real Estate Advisors.”
