November 1, 2011

Ms. Mills,

I would like to take this opportunity to give you our sixtieth monthly update on the project.   

We got the final report today that details the operation and maintenance of the system for the last period of operation.  This report also provides Argus recommendation for Post Active Remediation Monitoring (PARM), which we intend to approve. In the next few weeks, we will send our review letter to Argus and approve a quarterly PARM plan for them to get started on monitoring.   All of the milestone wells are below target levels.  Monitoring well DW-11 had on constituent above target levels when it was last sampled on September 27, 2011, which was Benzene at 9.7 µg/L.   This well will be part of the quarterly monitoring and is expected to attenuate.  One idea we are considering is to overpurge this well or to replace this well with a new well adjacent to it. 

I propose that I provide updates on a quarterly basis from now on the contractor will only be coming to sample the wells on a quarterly basis.  Please let me know if you would prefer more frequent updates and I will be happy to give them.  Otherwise, below are the tentative dates for the next four updates:

Ø       February 1, 2012 

Ø       May 1, 2012

Ø       August 1, 2012

Ø       November 1, 2012

 As always, please feel free to call me anytime if you need additional information or have any questions.

Thank you,

Damon Taylor

Ivanhoe Village Jingle Eve Nov. 18th – 6p – 10p

Merchant Announcement Letter

This year’s Jingle Eve Holiday Open House will be November 18 from 6pm until 10pm and will span Orange Ave and down to Alden and up Virginia Drive. The Ivanhoe Village Board of Directors is eager to work with you to make this annual event the best attended ever and are working diligently to create lots of “Wow Factor” additions to this Ivanhoe Village tradition. Some of the activities planned include:

 

  • Live Holiday Music
  • Santa Claus
  • Strolling Dickens Christmas Carol Characters
  • Dancers from the Nutcracker Ballet
  • Toys for Tots Donation Box
  • Boat Parade on Lake Ivanhoe
  • Wine Strolls

 

We can’t think of a better way to ring in the holiday season than to showcase your business to the thousands of diners and shoppers who will visit our Ivanhoe Village Main Street!Of course, to pull off such an event, we need your help and there are a number of ways you can contribute.

 

First, for those of you who have donated in the past, would you consider donating again? Donations help pay for entertainment, flyers, posters, print advertising, equipment rental and permits. To donate, call 407-393-8765 or email: IvanhoeVillageMS@gmail.com or make your check payable to Ivanhoe Village and mail to: 1611-A Alden Rd Suite E Orlando, FL 32803.

 

Second, if you would like to bring in an artist or entertainer or even promote your own business on the street, consider hosting a booth. A booth consists of a table and two chairs and is available for $20.00. We will highlight your business and/or booth in our Jingle Eve map which will be handed out the day of the event.

 

Third, holiday string lights will be installed by volunteers for special price of $25.00 which includes a 100 bulb string lights will be placed outside of your business, and will be yours to keep. Installation of your own lights is available for $15.00. Your reservation and payment is required by Friday, November 4th. Volunteers will be here to hang the lights on Thursday the 17th of November in preparation for the Jingle Eve event. If you can donate food to feed these hungry volunteers that would be great.

 

In addition to the holiday decorations that you display in your business, holiday lights and other decorations will be placed in some of the more dimly-lit areas of Orange Avenue for a continuous festive feeling all along the avenue. This will also connect the merchants south of Gaston-Edwards Park and the merchants on Virginia Drive to the festivities to the north. We recommend keeping these lights up throughout the Holiday Season.

 

Fourth, we need volunteers on Friday afternoon from 1pm until 4pm to set up the event, from 6pm until 10pm during the event and from 10 pm on to tear down after the event on Friday night.

 

On behalf of the Board of Directors, we thank you for all your ideas and assistance and look forward to your participation in this year’s Jingle Eve.

 

Happy Holidays!

 

Amanda Sarnes

Executive Director

Monthly update for Sellers Auto / Artist Studio petroleum cleanup site 489201547 / 489201548 update #59A)‏

Good afternoon,

As a followup to the update at the beginning of October, I have good news:  all of the milestone wells that were sampled on September 27th were below cleanup target wells again this time.  Therefore, the system will remain off and prepared for long term storage. 

However, one well did show a slight concentration of Benzene though.  Monitoring well DW-11 which has historically had low concentrations of Benzene had 9.6 µg/L of it this time. This will be monitored and will not require the system to be turned back on since this well is a 55 ft deep well and the treatment wells are 20 ft deep.  Tentatively, we plan on over-purging that well or a well nearby address this.  

Please feel free to call me anytime if you need additional information or have any questions.  Have a great weekend.

Sunrail

Of the Mayor’s list of the benefits of SunRail, these three are probably the most important for our neighborhood:

“Help for the Elderly and Handicapped
• SunRail will give the elderly and handicapped residents of Central Florida a new means of transportation and enhanced ability to be self-reliant.

Bolstering Home Prices and Strengthening the Real Estate Market Against Future Downturns
• Within 20 years, property owners can expect an increase of almost nine times their current value for property values within one-half mile of station stops.

Access to Jobs and Opportunities
• SunRail will give residents expanded access to jobs. Conversely, the 61-mile commuter train will give employers access to a much broader base of potential employees.”

If you support SunRail, and I believe that is the consensus of our most of our neighbors, please email or call the Governor’s office and tell him so.

Subject: Voice Your Support for SunRail

 

Are you tired of traffic jams on I-4?
Are you looking for an alternative to rising gas prices?

We are on the verge of having a solution to those and many other challenges….SunRail.

SunRail is a 61-mile commuter line that would run from Deland to Poinciana. There will be four stops in Downtown Orlando at Florida Hospital, LYNX Central Station, Church Street and Orlando Health Medical Center.

Governor Scott and his team are in the final days of a review period and we need your help in making sure that the Governor knows that this project is a priority for Central Florida.

The strength of Central Florida is reinforced each and every time we stand together behind projects of regional significance.

There are many throughout Florida who do not support SunRail and they have shared that with Governor Scott.

It is important that your voice of support is heard. Please write a letter or email Governor Scott, let him know that you live/work/play in Orlando and you support SunRail.

Below is a list of benefits that may assist you in writing Governor Scott in support of SunRail.

SunRail: What’s in it for ME?
Real World Benefits of SunRail

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!
• SunRail’s construction will create 10,000 desperately needed jobs, almost immediately.
• Over the next 30 years, SunRail will create more than 250-thousand jobs and generate an economic impact of more than 8-billion dollars

An Answer to Skyrocketing Gas Prices
• As our community is faced with a future of 4 or even 5 and 6 dollar-a-gallon gas, SunRail will give Central Florida’s residents a less expensive alternative to their automobiles.

An Alternative to Congested Roads
• SunRail will carry the equivalent of one lane of traffic on Interstate 4, providing a viable travel alternative to our increasingly-congested roadways.

A Quicker, More Reliable Commute
• Say goodbye to standing still on the highway during rush hour. SunRail will offer residents reliable, on-time transit that is not susceptible to long delays because of congestion or traffic accidents.

No More “Lost Time” Sitting in a Car
• Rather than sitting in a car, SunRail riders will be free to attend to the details of life while they are commuting, instead of focusing on driving.
• SunRail’s Wi-Fi-enabled cars will offer travelers the ability to work while they travel.

Reduced Sprawl, Smarter Growth
• SunRail will allow for the development of more walkable, livable communities.

Improvements to Florida’s Port and Freight Rail System
• The purchase of SunRail’s tracks from CSX comes with a unique commitment that every penny of the 432-million sale price be re-invested in Florida’s transportation infrastructure.
• This means SunRail will result directly in an increase in global trade in Florida by improving connectivity between our ports and major markets in northern states.

The Foundation for the Creation of More Mass Transit Options
• Planning is already underway to expand downtown Orlando’s free bus circulator, Lymmo, to connect with and compliment SunRail. SunRail will act as a catalyst for other Central Florida cities to expand mass transit options.

A Cleaner, Healthier Environment
• SunRail will reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and our community’s overall carbon footprint.

Help for the Elderly and Handicapped
• SunRail will give the elderly and handicapped residents of Central Florida a new means of transportation and enhanced ability to be self-reliant.

Bolstering Home Prices and Strengthening the Real Estate Market Against Future Downturns
• Within 20 years, property owners can expect an increase of almost nine times their current value for property values within one-half mile of station stops.

Access to Jobs and Opportunities
• SunRail will give residents expanded access to jobs. Conversely, the 61-mile commuter train will give employers access to a much broader base of potential employees.

Reducing our Reliance on Foreign Oil
• Every year our country gives 700 billion dollars away to the Middle East and other oil rich economies. This dependence threatens our economy. More important than money, this reliance on foreign oil threatens the safety of all Americans as our oil addiction helps feed the coffers of terrorist organizations bent on killing US citizens.
• SunRail is one part of a much larger energy strategy that would reduce Central Florida and America’s dependence on foreign oil.

A New Tool to Attract Companies
• Research has consistently indicated that superior mass transit options significantly aid in a community’s ability to attract new businesses to their metropolitan region.

A More Cost-Effective Way to Move People
• SunRail’s capital construction costs are $615 million dollars.
• The cost to expand I-4 to carry the same amount of people as SunRail would exceed $4 billion dollars.

A Smart Investment for our Future
• Every dollar invested in transportation yields approximately $5.60 in economic benefits to the state of Florida.
