As we enter the 2019/20 term for your new South Seminole Heights Civic Association Board we are dedicated to making sure we are aligned with the concerns of our residents and focused on moving the association in the right direction based on your feedback. The new SSHCA Board begins their term this month and we will be hosting a board retreat to set association goals and individual Board Member goals that will align to the Association’s. During the 2017/18 term we were able to do a great job with our goals, becoming a 501(c)3, starting and continuing the Heights Unites Music & Arts Festival, and moving the needle on neighborhood transportation issues. However, we don’t want to set future goals without hearing from you. Your SSHCA Board Wants Your Opinion! Help Us, Help You!
We are looking to understand more about your feelings bout the current status of the SSHCA, what ideas you have about what we can do to improve, what priorities you would like to see the association focused on, what areas of concerns are the greatest for you in the neighborhood, and more. We have created a simple online surve that has been emailed out to our entire email list, shared on social media, and is now being shared here as well. We ask that you take the time to complete the survey to help us set the tone and direction for the association over the next two years.
Hard copies should be distributed by USPS to your mailbox today, tomorrow, or Wednesday depending on what route you are on in South Seminole Heights.
In this issue you will find updates on: -Heights Unites Music & Arts Festival -Traffic/Pedestrian Safety Updates -Community Feedback Survey -Committee Chair Recruitment -Flags for Sale -Your Home's History -Beautification Award -Street Art Trail and more!

The road markings on Highland Ave as you approach Osborne have been redone so they are more visible and new “signal ahead” markings have also been added. You may also notice the signal timing has changed and the red might lasts a little longer before the other direction turns green.
Make sure to come to the general meeting next Wed at 630 at the Seminole Heights Library. We will be focused on transportation and pedestrian safety issues with representatives from FDOT, City of Tampa Transportation, and Tampa Police Department in hand to share updates, what we are working on short and long term for solutions, and to listen to and address your concerns. ...
