Page 22 PRSRT STD US POSTAGE PAID PERMIT 2397 TAMPA FL Employee housing update By David Cook, Chairman The Foundation Board of Directors has been review-ing options that w oul d allow us to provide housing for the seasonal workers who are so very important in our delivery of excellent service to our members, particularly at the two beach restaurants. These conversa-tions first came into focus during the April 7 Board Workshop and have contin-ued at both Board meetings and workshops. We h a v e cond uct e d a thorough review of rental options as has been covered in other Pelican Bay Post ar ti c le s . T h e a v ai labi l -ity of rental properties in the proper range has be-come very limited in South-west Fl orida and rental r a t es a r e rising f a st e r than inflation. These points led us to focus on the possibility of purchas-ing additional property to house seasonal employees. As you know, the Founda-tion already owns a build-ing north of Immokal e e Road which contains 12 two-bedroom units and hous-es 48 seasonal employees. We have tried to inform our membership about this topic through Pelican Bay Post articles in the early May, mid-May and June issues. This topic was addition-ally communicated through the weekly e-newsletter as well as posting on the website. These are impor-tant steps to keep our mem-bers apprised of what we are considering. Our docu-ments also require this notice continued on page 3 4th of July Hours Fitness Center -6 a.m. to 1 p.m. Guest Services -9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Member Services -Closed Community Center Front Desk -Closed North Tennis -8 a.m. to 1 p.m. South Tennis -8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Marker 36 -Noon to 8 p.m. Sandbar -11:30 a.m. to Sunset The Pelican Bay Foundation, Inc. 6251 Pelican Bay Blvd. Naples, FL 34108
