President’s Corner – June 2022 – Fertilizer Ban

June 2, 2022

  It’s that time of year again! No, not summer, but the restricted application period for fertilizers! Although it’s not a glamourous topic, it is an important issue to be familiar with and abide by the regulations in place for the sake of our health and environment. Some regulations are year round; for example you…

President’s Corner – January 2022 – New Website

January 4, 2022

Happy New Year, Central Viera!!  Is everyone as excited as I am to see 2021 behind us?  I am really looking forward to what 2022 will bring to our community.  2021 was rather a busy year for Viera with a lot of growth and exciting openings (such as the new Costco!) and it doesn’t appear…

President’s Corner – January 2021 – New Year, New Viera!

January 18, 2021

I know it’s been a while since you heard from me and, for that, I apologize.  I’ve had some staff changes, a promotion, and let’s not forget all the COVID stuff!  But, I hope to kick off the new year on the right track and keep this ball rolling all year. We have all been…

President’s Corner – April 2019 – Earth Day

April 9, 2019

It’s that time of year again friends. Time to break out the potting soil and gardening gloves and get to weeding those flower beds. Maybe I will take up composting this year. My plants and shrubs could certainly use the additional nutrition that composting provides. I just have to remember to keep those coffee grounds…

Old clock for daylight savings

President’s Corner – March 2019 – Daylight Saving Time

March 8, 2019

So, do you say “Daylight Savings Time” or “Daylight Saving Time”? I would be willing to bet that most of us say “Savings”. Am I right? Well, the correct term is actually “Daylight Saving Time” so we should probably work on that (among all of the other things we need to work on!). The history…

red hears for Valentines Day

President’s Corner – February 2019 – “Love Where You Live”

February 5, 2019

It’s the month of love, February. We all have things in our lives that we love – our families, our pets, our friends, and even our favorite foods. But, how often do we say we love where we live? How many of us think that much about the place we call home and what makes…

Prescribed Burn in Viera, Florida

President’s Corner – January 2019 – Prescribed Burns

January 4, 2019

We are heading into that season when prescribed burns are common and the smell of smoke is in the air. Hey, it’s Florida’s version of the smell of burning leaves in autumn up north!! In all seriousness, prescribed burns are a necessary activity in our area to ensure that out-of-control forest fires (think California) do…

President’s Corner – November 2018 – Roundabouts

November 6, 2018

Yes, the dreaded Viera Roundabout – let’s talk about it. Although, I don’t know why it has become so reviled. Roundabouts make so much sense and are so safe, the local resistance to roundabouts just astounds me. I recently returned from a vacation in Arizona and they were everywhere! And, yes, there were two lane…

President’s Corner – October 2018 – Mobility Week

October 5, 2018

We all use it, every day – some form of transportation. Whether it’s our car, bike, golf cart or our own two feet, it’s an integral part of human existence. Yet, we pay so little attention to it, like it’s an afterthought. Brevard County is truly a multi-modal community with our trails, waterways, roads, railroad…

florida special districts

President’s Corner – August 2018 – Special Districts

August 1, 2018

Everyone who lives in Viera knows that we have HOA’s – lots of HOA’s. If you live in Viera, you are in at least two HOA’s (some neighborhoods have more). However, we also have special districts here in Viera that don’t get talked about nearly as much yet they encompass the majority of the acreage…
