Venice Municipal Airport will soon complete the rehabilitation of two taxiways. The work includes energy efficient
LED lighting system improvements. The City of Venice received
grants from the Florida Department of Transportation and Federal Aviation Administration to pay for 94 percent of the $4.7
million project.
The airport will also add a bank of t-hangars to fulfill the
needs of customers on a waiting list. FDOT will fund 80 percent
of the $1.5 million project, which is expected to add nearly
$80,000 a year in revenue for the Airport Enterprise Fund. The
airport will pay for the remainder of all project costs and reA Cessna lands at Venice Municipal Airport and preceives no funding from the city’s general fund.

Important Notice: St. Augustine Avenue, on the island of Venice, is a one-way street westbound as of Dec. 5.
The decision to make it one way was in an effort to eliminate some of the confusing traffic pattern and congestion

Beach Renourishment
• January: The Army Corps of Engineers
will perform the third restoration project as part
of its 50-year agreement with the city. Great
Lakes Dredge & Dock won the bid to pump sand
onto the beach. They will pump from Flamingo
Ditch north, then from Flamingo Ditch south,
and finally relocate equipment to the north end
of the beach and pump sand to meet the parcel
already complete.
• Getting sand. The hopper dredge, Liberty Island, will be utilized during the project.
This 315-foot vessel has a hopper capacity of
6,540 yards of sand, with a nominal digging
depth of 108 feet. It uses one stern anchor and
two bow anchors and will be stationed about
10,000 - 12,000 feet offshore using a booster
Hopper dredges are designed to vacuum material from he sea floor through drag
arms that load the material into the hold of the
• Background: This is the third restoration of Venice Beach since 1996 in accordance
with the city’s agreement with the corps to renourish every 10 years for 50 years. The original
nourishment in 1994 and 1996 added 250 feet
of sand seaward of the high water line and what
then was a minimal stretch of beach due to erosion. The restored beach serves to preserve nat-

ural and manmade infrastructure from erosion,
tropical storms and hurricanes. It also serves to
provide more sand for endangered sea turtles,
which normally nest on the same beach where
they hatched, to find sufficient areas for nesting. Several species of shorebirds also nest
along the beach.
And, of course, the beach is essential to
the area’s greatest economic driver, tourism.
• Sand. A dredge will bring sand close to
shore from a borrow site about 9.4 nautical
miles offshore from the southern limits of the
project, then pump it through submerged pipes
onto the beach. Special screens filter unwanted
materials at the dredge and again at the end of
the pipe. Once the sand is on the beach, heavy
equipment is used to spread it to fill in the
beach template. Surveyors and inspectors will
monitor the sand and its placement to ensure
it meets specific standards for Venice Beach.
• Where will sand go? About 3.2 miles
of shoreline will receive around 791,000 cubic
yards of sand.
• When will the work take place? The
work will take place 24 hours a day, seven days
a week in order to expedite the project, which
is expected to be completed in three months,
barring unforeseen delays.
• Noise. There will be noise from
pumps, the use of heavy equipment and backup
alarms. The direction of the wind and other factors may influence the way in which the noise
is perceived.
• Watching the action. the process of renourishment is quite interesting to many people. It
is important that people respect the signs and
markings designating safe areas from which to
watch the activities in the work zone. boaters
should also refrain from entering the work zone
in the water.
• Protecting the environment. The City
of Venice will monitor sea turtles and shore
birds for their safety during the project.
Since this is not the nesting season for
sea turtles they will be less likely to be affected
by the project. The hopper dredge will use a deflector to protect sea turtles from harm.
Coral and other bottom sea life will be
surveyed and photographed in advance of the
project and dredging and piping will be done
with consideration for these environmental

Fun Fact: A nautical mile is based on the
circumference of the planet Earth. If you were
to cut the Earth in half at the equator, you could
pick up one of the halves and look at the equator as a circle. You could divide that circle into
360 degrees. You could then divide a degree
into 60 minutes. A minute of arc on the planet
Earth is 1 nautical mile. This unit of measurement is used by all nations for air and sea travel.
A nautical mile is 1.1508 miles or 6,076 feet.

The SCOPE 2014 Community Report Card Road Show - Coming to Venice
The 2014 Community Report Card, a
data-rich snapshot of community well being, is
hot off the press and coming to a community
near you.
Starting in January, SCOPE (Sarasota
County Openly Plans for Excellence) will be taking the 2014 Community Report Card on the
road and presenting the findings to citizens,
civic leaders and decision makers in communities around the county through free workshops.
SCOPE will be kicking off the first workshop on Monday, Jan. 12, from 9 a.m. - noon,
at the Venice Community Center, 326 S.
Nokomis Ave. The City of Venice is the cohost.
“Data is everywhere. The challenge
today isn’t obtaining data, but presenting it in a
way that allows everyone to gain a better understanding of what is going on in the community,” SCOPE Executive Director John McCarthy
said. SCOPE is a community engagement organization in Sarasota County.
By hosting interactive workshops in area
communities, SCOPE will provide a framework
of data that can be used to better understand
what in Sarasota County is cause for celebration
and what might need corrective action.
The Report Card features trend lines
showing changes over time and comparison
with state and national trends. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to explore
the data, reflect on community issues and discuss actions that could be taken to improve the

New bike lanes call for awareness of rules of the road
The city of Venice is proud to be a Silver Bike
Friendly Community and is working toward
making biking a safe mode of transportation
and healthy exercise. Several streets have recently been marked with bike lanes and sharrows.
A sharrow is a reminder that cars must share
the lane with bikes and keep a constant lookout and awareness of bicycle traffic.
A bike lane is specifically marked for bicycle
traffic only. Stopping, standing or parking in
these lanes is prohibited. Cars may pull over to
the curb in a bike lane momentarily to drop off
a passenger, but may not vacate the car in that
Residents of Venice are encouraged to enjoy
biking in this beautiful coastal community.
They are especially encouraged to learn the
rules of safe biking, as are vehicular drivers encouraged to learn the rules of the road for
sharing the streets with bicyclists. This includes understanding that when riding a bicycle in the street, the rules for bicyclists are the
same as they are for drivers of vehicles. That
is, ride on the right side, use hand signals for
turning, and obey traffic signals.
When riding a bicycle on the sidewalk, pedestrians have the right of way. Always use a bell
or other audible signal, including a polite “on
your left” warning as you ride up behind a
pedestrian on a sidewalk or crosswalk. If a
sidewalk is congested with pedestrians, the bi-
cyclists should use the street.
Venice is fortunate to have more than 12 miles
of bicycle and hiking trails that one can take all
the way to Sarasota without ever encountering a motorized vehicle.
When driving a car, avoid the bicycle lane,
watch for bicycle traffic and give a few feet of
distance between the vehicle and bicycle
when in a marked sharrow and on other
roads. Bike and drive safely.
To learn more about safe biking,
plan to attend the free Smart
Cycling classes on the second
Saturday of each month. See

Frank, a miniature schnauzer, had a little adventure Dec. 16. A couple spotted the little

They decided to take him to the Venice Police Department. There, Records Clerk Kelli
