If you go: Dunedin City Commission agenda for April 4



While many items at next week's Dunedin City Commission will likely fall under the category of routine housekeeping, a few topics might generate discussion among city leaders or residents. They include:

  • A vote on the Dunedin Housing Authority's plans to sell its Clearwater-based affordable housing complex, Fairway Gardens, to the Clearwater Housing Authority and reinvest the proceeds in a new development located within Dunedin city limits. Mayor Dave Eggers has submitted a letter of support. For some history on Fairway Gardens, click here.
  • A resolution confirming the city's commitment to keeping the Toronto Blue Jays from ditching their Dunedin spring training facilities when their lease expires in 2017. Read more here.
  • Debate over whether Dunedin should support a citywide ban on Internet sweepstakes cafes
  • Possible ratification of a three-year contract with Dunedin firefighters, retroactive to Oct. 1
  • A proclamation officially renaming downtown's Pioneer Park in honor of late Dunedin City Manager John Lawrence. More info here.

The City Commission meets at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 4 at Dunedin City Hall, 542 Main St. Get a full copy of the agenda here.
