PALM HARBOR – Several projects taken on by CSA Palm Harbor concluded or got underway recently, Director Erica Lynford reported May 15.
The new lighting at Putnum Park ball fields has been completed. Lynford said the old poles were being taken down and some adjustments had to be made, particularly in keeping too much light from spilling into a neighboring back yard.
“Other than that, the lights are working great. We got our first Putnam lighting bill and saved well over 400 kilowatt hours a day,” Lynford said.
The roof of the secondary building at the Centre itself has been repaired, the project completed as of May 14, Lynford said.
The roof of the main building still needs repairs. Construction is set to begin at the end of May or in the first of June and take 30 days to complete, Lynford said.
The fishing pier at Pop Stansell Park has been closed.
“I went out today and walked the pier, and we are closing it for repairs immediately effective tomorrow,” Lynford said May 15. “There are defining concerns for repair there.”
Lynford said she talked to the county about helping with funding for the repairs, but didn’t know what would come of that conversation.
Finally, the Palm Harbor Farmer’s Market, which was forced off the North Pinellas Historical Museum property due to complaints and misunderstandings about a zoning ordinance, will continue. CSA Palm Harbor agreed May 15 to accommodate the market at Pop Stansell Park, Lynford said.
The museum will continue to organize and collect revenue from the market to support its operations.
The market will open Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at 797 Florida Ave. in Palm Harbor.
