Annual Report 2018 Annual Report

Safe and Secure in our Unique Sense of Community In Jupiter, we value our quality of life, a term often used to describe the overall feeling of security, sustainability, enjoyment and well- being — both as individuals and as a community. Fundamental to a high quality of life is a feeling of safety, in our neighborhoods, on our streets, and throughout the community. Over the years, we’ve grown in population, in industry, and in overall size. We’re nearing the point at which available land is either preserved or occupied. We’re almost at what is commonly referred to as “build-out”. Yet we still have a desire to balance the sense and feel of a small, coastal town with the success and sustainability of a mature community. In 2019, some important initiatives and investments will occur that will help to continue to support Jupiter’s quality of life, safety, and sustainability. On the site of the municipal complex, we will construct a new, hardened Police Department facility to house day-to-day public safety resources and activities, as well as a data center to support Town information infrastructure. This facility will also serve as the Town’s Emergency Operations Center and house police and Town personnel before, during and after disasters such as hurricanes. This facility will modernize public safety in the Town, and help us to continue operations if and when we are ever faced with a significant storm or emergency. 2018 ANNUAL REPORT AND 2019 PREVIEW Mayor Todd Wodraska Vice-Mayor Ron Delaney Councilor Ilan Kaufer Councilor Jim Kuretski Councilor Wayne R. Posner Jupiter is becoming a mature community, with different challenges and opportunities than those we faced during high periods of growth. But through it all, our quality of life and sense of small-town feel is what keeps us Uniquely Jupiter. On the March municipal election ballot, there will also be a land acquisition bond referendum. If passed by voters, this referendum would allow the Town to borrow up to $20 million for the purposes of purchasing land. Land considered for this program would be required to be either environmentally sensitive land, waterfront and recreational land, land for open spaces, land for archaeological or historic preservation or land that provides relief from traffic congestion. 210 Military Trail, Jupiter, FL 33458 • (561) 746-5134 ─Jupiter Town Council Town Website: Follow Us: @TownofJupiter Follow Us: @TownofJupiterandPolice Become a Fan: JupiterTownandPolice Town Council Webcast: Watch Comcast: Channel 18
