According to City Manager Leigh Ann Henderson, the current land use is residential, and the city is seeking to change that to TOC. TOC is a mixed-use residential and commercial area designed to maximize access to public transportation and often incorporates features to encourage transit ridership. Community Development Services Director Roberta Moore said she and her staff met with a consultant to draft the land-use change, which was then presented at a number of community meetings. Public outreach has been going on for a better part of a year, according to Moore. However, residents whose neighborhoods are within the proposed TOC fear the impact it would have on their quiet neighborhoods. Some of them expressed those concerns at the Oct. 23 commission meeting. Ron Burr, who lives on Northwest 30 Court, urged commissioners to alter the boundaries of the TOC so Residents fear TOC zone will have negative impact on neighborhoods The rendering above is of a conceptual redevelopment of the corner of Oakland Park Boulevard and Andrews Avenue, where the Publix is currently located. Although Publix has announced no plans to redevelop the site, commissioners say attracting redevelopment is the purpose behind the proposed land-use changes to the Oakland Park Boulevard and Andrews Avenue corridors. [Courtesy]his neighborhood would not be impacted. Burrs biggest concerns are that the amount of traffic coming through the neighborhood would drastically increase and property values would decrease exponentially. He asked commissioners to protect the residents they were elected to serve. Mayor Gary Resnick said while everyone recognized the importance of improving Andrews Avenue and Oakland Park Boulevard, it should not be a burden to residents. I never envisioned impacting single-family residential homes. Vice-Mayor Justin Flippen agreed with Resnick, saying there has to be a way to carve out the residential neighborhoods while maintaining the integrity of See TOC on page 22

SROs are trained deputies Pompano spends $1.5 million on new SROs, aides who are assigned to local schools and provide additional security for those schools. Currently, there are nine SROs. According to the Broward County Public Schools website, SROs focus on preventing and responding to juvenile delinquency and substance abuse and are a source of positive interaction between students and law enforcement. SROs also provide educational opportunities for students. Service aides are trained personnel who perform non-emergency duties, such as traffic accidents, crime scene processing and traffic direction. The city has four now. At the Oct. 26 meeting, Pompano BSO Chief Major John Hale asked commissioners to hold an emergency second hearing so the new service aides could attend the Community Service Aide Academy which began on Nov. 1. -Michael dOliveira Meeting on medical marijuana dispensaryOakland Park A meeting on a proposed medical mari juana dispensary will be held on Thursday, Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. in Suite 2 of the Municipal Building, 5399 N.

It opens with a special reception tonight during the monthly Untapped event. After hosting a string of exhibitions focused on specific themes, such as connections with nature in the Unearthed show and personal narratives like Sara Macels What Did the Deep Sea Say? the gallery is experimenting with abstract works by three prolific artists of various mediums. The artists are all veterans of the South Florida art world but come from uniquely different backgrounds. her works is pictured above. [Courtesy]by a trip to Egypt. Jill Lefkowitz works in more regimented patterns derived from aboriginal artwork, using a variety of common and found objects such as guitars and barrels as her canvases. There is a certain freedom with abstract work when artists get in the flow and let the materials and expressive gestures of the hand materialize their feelings, said Juliana Forero, Ph.D., Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department gallery curator. Throughout this year, I met the three featured artists at different events. While they dont know each other personally, I felt their work would show well together as they share a passion to express their art almost unfiltered straight from their heart and soul. The ab-strakt exhibition will remain in BaCAs main gallery through Dec. 22. The artists will be present for remarks and a meet-and-greet on Friday, Nov. 16. from 6 to 8 p.m. This is an exhibition that highlights the importance of expression and embraces the departure from figurative forms allowing gestures to take shape to represent ideas, feelings, and concepts, explained Forero.

Fifty eight percent of these high-tech companies have plans to expand. In 2018, 209 new business tax receipts were issued. Construction of new homes is contributing to this healthy economy. This year, 228 residences were completed. In 2019, 378 townhomes will be under construction. In two years, 293 single-family homes and 122 townhomes will be built. Another 201 are pending approval. In his remarks, the mayor addressed a $38 million bond that will finance major renovations to city facilities. A focus for redevelopment here remains the Pioneer Grove area around city hall and Dixie Highway which the federal government has designated an Opportunity Zone. Ganz called out some special community partners. Among them were the JM Family Foundation that contributes dollars and manpower to numerous local projects and has begun a $150 million expansion of its campus here. Also on the list of doers was Danielle Rosse, owner of Oceans 234 who provided food to senior citizens at the Palms after Hurricane Irma; Bob Birdsong, president of taken on the task of chairing the citys newly-founded Economic Development Council and Ari Pavan, owner State of CityContinued from page 1 of Dixie Divers, who has championed Deerfield Beach as a nautical destination.

The Pelican wants your opinion! Send your letters to the editor to The Pelican urges Lighthouse Point approve bond issueIt may not be the perfect product but the proposed $16.5 million bond issue, dedicated to improving the safety of the public and its employees, very much needs to be approved by Lighthouse Point voters on Tuesday. The projects a Cat 5, fire station/emergency operations center, a new public works building, a functional community center and the build out of the existing second floor at the library have been thoroughly studied by the commission and city staff. And although some residents would have liked to vote on each project specifically, few are on record as opposing the issue itself. That would be hard to do because here is the situation. In this affluent city where the average appraised value of a home is $500,000, the current public works building commonly floods when it rains, the only shelter at Dan Witt Park is too small to safely contain summer campers, the librarys second floor is now nothing more than an attic, and the current fire station is built to mere Category 3 standards not a safe place for the citys first responders to ride out a major hurricane. Improvements to these facilities seem long overdue in a city that prides itself on its pricey real estate, recreational programs and library services. Residents here are also fiercely loyal to their law enforcement officers and fire/EMT personnel, as they should be. So how can they in good conscience let their public employees work out of substandard buildings? Thats the image issue. But the safety issue is the real reason residents need these upgrades. Residents are supposed to evacuate Lighthouse Point with the approach of a Cat 2 hurricane. First responders and other city officials now must leave town when a Cat 3 is forecast. Given the horrendous destruction caused by Hurricane Michael in Floridas Panhandle, where Cat 3 municipal buildings were destroyed and police departments are still running command centers out of circus tents, the need for a Cat 5 emergency operations center here cannot be denied. The EOC will be the place where police and fire personnel can either sit out a storm or return and start the process of restoring city services. The new public works garage and the recreation center will be built to Cat 4 standards and can also be used in emergencies. And the build out of the library? The second story will house the internet servers, a protection against first floor flooding. After Hurricane Irma [a small storm,] residents flocked to the library where service was available for Wi-Fi and computer connections. Safety is surely the issue here. But lets think about the citys upscale image. Public buildings are very much a part of that. The fire department/EOC on Sample Road and Northeast 21 Terrace will be a handsome landmark at a major entry point into the city. The public works building will be dry and air-conditioned, a fitting work place for the department that maintains the citys infrastructure and its fleet of vehicles. Family-proud Lighthouse Point should have provided its youngsters with indoor recreational space years ago. The library, the citys cultural hub, will be able to expand its programming for young and old. We cannot think of a valid argument against floating the bond issue. Financing these capital projects any other way would take years and years. Bonds, secured by tax revenues, are the most efficient way to make these improvements. Once approved, there is a plan in place to fast-track construction. Bonds have a modest impact on the taxpayer. Here, the increase in taxes is estimated to be 45 cents per $1,000 of appraised real estate value, or, for that owner of the $500,000 home, $245 a year. $22.40 a month to get four safe buildings capable of handling the citys needs in a disaster. $22.40 a month to give city employees functional, energy-saving workplaces. $22.40 a month to improve the citys public image. $22.40 a month to play catch-up to the 21st Century.

8 The Pelican bw By Judy Wilson PELICAN STAFF Deerfield Beach Training super athletes has progressed from mere honing and toning to improving the mindbody connection. And its happening in Deerfield Beach. Barwis Methods has opened its international headquarters in the Hillsboro Technology Center. It is 24,000 square feet of voluminous space filled with all the body building equipment imaginable. The owner of this provocative training center is Mike Barwis, a 46-year-old entrepreneur who started his career at the University of West Virginia in 1993, moved on to Michigan University in 2007 and then in 2011 founded Barwis Methods, dedicated to the science of holistic human performance. He now has gyms in Michigan, Port St. Lucie, Georgia and Eastern Europe. In the near future, Orlando and Miami are on the list. His methods have accelerated the strength and speed of numerous athletes. Around the Barwis gym, trainers drop names like NBA hall of famer James for both pro and amateur athletes; opens in Technology Center Mike Barwis [center], former UFC Welterweight Champion Robbie Lawler and inspirational speaker Brock Mealer [left] who regained use of his legs using Barwis Methods. [Photos by Zac Lucius/BARWIS]Worthy, former Pittsburgh Steeler Lamar Woodly, Mets leftfielder Yoenis Cespedes and the Golden State Warriors Draymond Green. They are a few of the hundreds of world-class athletes amateur and pro who have trained using Barwis Methods. The new facility here will incorporate a number of training options: elite personal, physical therapy, youth and team clinics, speed and agility classes, nutritional consulting, massage, athlete recovery, performance optimization. There is a scientific component to all Barwis Methods training. But one, neurological reengineering, is especially exciting. It holds the promise of regenerating the body. Donny Vanker, chief of staff at Barwis, explains the concept. Barwis theory is that when muscles need to be rebuilt, for any reason, there is a neuron that must transmit the proper message to the muscle. The science is called neurological reengineering. The premise is that the body adapts to the intensities it habitually experiences. It helps the brain relocate, activate and control muscle fibers. It creates pathways to increase stimulation and motor control of the nervous system. Barwis First Step Foundation gives those suffering spinal cord injuries, strokes, traumatic brain injury, Cerebral Palsy and Muscular Dystrophy access to this science. All protocols used here are designed for the individual to heal and make necessary adaptions. Praise from athletes who have trained with him is profuse. Amazing training. Barwis is a beast, said Rashad Evans, former UFC light heavyweight champ. And Dolphins tackle Ndamukong Suh has said, Perfection to detail and the work ethic is what the staff at Barwis is all about. Barwis selected the Hillsboro Technology Center for his worldwide headquarters for several reasons: access to transportation, hotels and the beaches and fact that many professional athletes live in South Florida. But he was also courted by Dave Mirantz, CEO of the Deerfield Beach Economic Development Council, who provided him with information about this citys business climate. He has been featured in such diverse media outlets as People Magazine and Fox Sports. For a time, he had a show on the Discovery Channel, American Muscle. Vanker calls him the leader on motion . and one of the smartest guys on the eastern seaboard. Vanker has a personal reason to tout the science that repairs the injured. His own son was born with cerebral palsy and made little progress despite advanced treatments. That was, he says, until he came to Barwis and the science of neurological reengineering. No one else could fix his signals, Vanker said. On a recent afternoon, the gym reverberated with music as athletes sprinted, jumped, ran against restraints and lifted. Its not for the halfhearted, Vanker observed. But there is a softer side to all this high-quality physical performance. The Barwis gyms are not just for the super athlete or the injured. Families are a big priority according to Vanker. There are group classes and clinics. A Little League coach can bring his team in to learn about the facility and what is available. We want to help be the catalyst to improving the performance of young athletes, Vanker said. When you walk in the door here, you matter. Everyone can benefit from the Barwis Method. It depends on how hard you work and how often. Monthly memberships are modest and for those who have a child in a youth class, use of cardio equipment is just $5 an hour. An important part of the Barwis philosophy is charity, Vanker said. A major event is being planned for the First Step Foundation and the Athletic Angels Foundation which provides athletic, academic and financial services to impoverished young people. A charity golf tournament will be held at the Parkland Golf and Country Club on Thursday, Feb. 7, 1 p.m. It offers the opportunity to play 18 holes with a professional athlete.

The Pelican 9 bw In the agreement, the parcel is now limited to 6,100 square feet. The prospective users need somewhere between 15,000 and 18,000 square feet. With the amendment, the minimum annual rent paid to the city would increase by $2.46 for each additional square foot of enclosed space over 6,100 square feet. That could result in a $30,000 annual increase in rent paid to the city. Apogee has 13 facilities at locations in New York City and Long Island, including the Tribeca Rooftop in a 100-year-old building, Tim Hernandez of Pompano Pier told the East CRA Advisory Committee on Oct. 18. East CRA members approved the plan 6-0. They want a gorgeous ballroom overlooking the ocean, he said. Hernandez said the benefits of adding the special event space include increased synergies with hotels, more corporate events brought to the area and more consistent mid-week and off-season business for restaurants both inside and outside the pier area. He said the Pompano Beach Pier Parking Garage would experience increased revenues. And he said the proposed use would result in a higher profile for Pompano Beach in the eyes of corporate users and event planners. The amendment also calls for the size limit for the Oceanic restaurant parcel to be increased from 8,700 to 9,570 square feet and the minimum annual rent to increase from $75,000 to $94,000. The need for more space is largely due to a reconfiguration of the floor plan to expand kitchen cooler and storage areas. Pompano Pier Associates is developing 48,500 square feet of new commercial development at the beach. The first project to be built in this development, called Pompano Beach Fishing Village, was the Pompano Beach House restaurant.

They can accomplish multiple things in one venue. Attendees can get information on investment planning, advance directives, retirement living, home health aides, hospice, local medical and rehabilitation centers, medical equipment and more. Axelrod said the Expo is timed to coincide with the Medicare enrollment period Oct. 15 to Dec. 7. This is during Medicare open enrollment, so a lot of them go around asking various questions to the healthcare providers. We try to keep a diverse group of vendors. [The attendees] may have different ailments. Its also timed so snowbirds can attend. We do this twice a year. We like the facility. The next [Expo at Emma Lou] is April 1.

12 The Pelican color By: Cassidy Schuck PELICAN INTERN Deerfield Beach The Deerfield Beach High School Bucks took on the Piper Bengals Oct. 26 for the District 11-8A Championship. Both schools were undefeated in district play. But Piper was not up to the challenge and the Bucks romped to a 35-0 win and claimed the district title for the fourth year in a row.Our number one goal every year is to win the district championship, Head Coach Jevon Glenn said. We have won it three years in a row and that is something we dont take for granted, but I am proud we get to keep the title here for a fourth year. The Bucks wasted no time in setting the pace of the game. On their second play, quarterback Derohn touchdown pass to wide receiver Dontae Banton, putting the Bucks up 7-0. They committed eight, nine players to the box, and they came in saying they were definitely going to try and stop Jaylan, Glenn said. Thats why it was so effective for Derohn to come in and throw a long bomb the first play because they had everyone so keyed on [running back] Jaylon The Bucks were forced to switch things up on their next set of downs as safety Tyron Herring entered the game as backup quarterback. But the readjustment did not seem to be a problem for the Bucks as Herring rushed for a touchdown. The half ended with the Bucks commanding a 14-0 lead. On the defensive side, the Bucks shut the Bengals out for the fourth year in a row. Defensive end Brandon Dorlus contributed with two sacks, one stripped sack, two tackles for a loss of yards and a forced interception that Jevon Denis recovered and Herring turned into a touchdown. Denis ended the game with one interception, six tackles and four tackles for a loss of yards. The game was not without penalties. Flags were flying on both ends of the field for unsportsmanlike play. The Bucks had touchdowns called back on offensive holding calls. But the Bucks managed to score five touchdowns: two Banton and one by Herring.

I have been in the restaurant business for 35 years, says owner Giuliano Vallorani who opened the first Zuccarelli in Margate in 1983. Serving just about every Italian specialty imaginable, this trustworthy trattoria comes loaded with a great wine list and tons of culinary expertise. The result is highquality fare at surprisingly low prices in a relaxed ambiance. The voluminous menu is replete with a seemingly endless array of mouthwatering favorites. Soups include the classic minestrone as well as the hearty pasta e fagiole. Salads such as grilled chicken, Caesar or calamari are also good starters. On the appetizer front, stuffed mushrooms, mussels marinara, clams oreganata and broccoli Parmigiana are just a few of the tempting choices available. A host of hot and cold sandwiches also makes an appearance. Sausage and peppers, eggplant, chicken, Managers Pat Demeglia and Joey Darmetta show off a famous Zuccarelli cheese pizza.

The Pelican 15 color doubts and aspersions on her. She said shes glad to get back on the campaign trail in the final week before the election on Nov. 6. But it may not be finished just yet. Terwilliger said he will confer with his attorney he will appeal the judges decision. He made the safe call, said Tynan of the judge. Terwilliger said hes confident he could have proved his case if he had been allowed to present his witnesses. Singhal said that he had read all of the documents presented to him. Singhal said the facts show Eaton has lived in her Dist. 2 home since September of 2017 and he agreed with Eatons attorney, Joseph Geller, and City Attorney EatonContinued from page 1 Rhonda Eaton Tom TerwilligerMark Berman that she is qualified to run for office under the charter. With Mr. Geller and Mr. Berman is where I come down, the judge said. Berman and Geller both argued that the two charter sections governing candidate qualifying should be read as one. Berman also said the court should defer to the citys interpretation of its charter. Ill have to defend the honor of the charter, he said. Singhal said he looked at the fact that Eaton had lived in the city at least a year before the election and came down in favor of her because of that. Eaton says she has lived in Dist. 2 since May of 2017. Under Section 7, Qualifications and Disqualifications, candidates can qualify to run for the district they live in if they have been residents of that district for at least one (1) year immediately preceding their election. Under Section 68, Nominations, anyone who is registered to vote in the city and who has been a resident of the city for a period of one year may be a candidate. Terwilliger said he believes that means candidates must be residents of the district they want to represent for at least one year by the time of the qualifying period June of 2018. Geller argued that because the voting period is underway it would be unfair to voters, who have already cast ballots for Eaton via early voting and absentee, to remove her from the election. That would mean voters would not have a choice, said Geller. After the ruling, Terwilliger said a website advertisement posted on the citys website before the election was in line with his view of the charter. It has since been taken down. Why have a city clerk [if what they publish isnt going to be followed?] asked Terwilliger. Before the ruling, Berman addressed the website advertisement and said the city charter takes precedence over anything else published or disseminated. But like Eaton, Terwilliger said hes ready to get back out on the campaign trail and let voters in Dist. 2 decide who will represent them. Good luck to both candidates, said Singhal, who commended Eaton and Terwilliger for their willingness to serve.

16 The Pelican By Judy Wilson PELICAN STAFF Deerfield Beach Woofing Waters, a doggie playground with a decidedly water park theme, opened this month at Quiet Waters Park, 401 S. Powerline Road. The long-awaited facility features spray hydrants, shower nozzles, a nozzle jet line and hard walking surfaces for large and small dogs. There is also a dog-wash area. The two acres is surrounded by permeable pavement to absorb the runoff. While the dogs cavort, their owners can relax beneath umbrellas, on benches and at picnic tables. Restrooms are shared with a nearby marina. The cost to build this high-end dog park was about $337,000 and was funded by the 2000 Safe Parks and Land Preservation Bond. The water park theme is fitting for the 430-acre Quiet Waters, which features Splash Adventure, Ski Rixen, lakes for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding and a newly-renovated marina. The Woofing Waters ribboncutting was followed by a Dog-toberfest, more fun for the pooches and their human parents. Woofing Waters is open daily 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., except Wednesday when it opens at 10 a.m. It will be closed during the annual Renaissance Festival in February. Annual passes are $25; a daily pass is $5. Owners must show proof dogs have been vaccinated. Pompano Beach The Exchange Club of Pompano Beach is selling Super Bowl raffle tickets for $100 each.

We need to find a way to help and enhance the area, but I dont want to do that on the backs of the residents, he said. We need to grow, and we need to change but we have to do that in a smart way. Commissioner Julie Carson said she wants to maintain the urban village, small town feel of the city. However, she added, buying homes is a big investment for residents and concerns.

We shouldnt eliminate something without knowing the future plans. Im for protecting neighborhoods but lets get more detail. To simply remove something, it destroys everything we wanted to do on Oakland Park Boulevard. The ultimate goal, Flippen said, is not for the city to just grow but to grow smartly. Zoning is the real issue. We need to articulate in the plan that we want the city to grow, he said. Resnick agreed, saying there has to be a way to balance the needs of the city with the concerns of the residents. We need to do more buffering. There has to be a way to do this without threatening the character and neighborhoods, he said. We need to look at how to plan of that area. with the consultant again and determine ways to change the boundaries, if possible.
