Free in-home vaccinations 🥳

It is with the utmost concern for the children of our community that the SSHCA Board has cancelled the Halloween Trick-Or-Treating at Rivercrest Park this year. This decision was not made in haste, but in response to the surge of COVID-19 pediatric cases and no vaccines available for young children. The SSHCA much enjoys this annual event and are disappointed we cannot safely host this event this year.

While the event was held during the pandemic last year, COVID-19 infections among children were at the time, quite rare, and many precautions and safety rules were in place for a safe event.

We look forward to resuming the event in 2022, bigger and better than ever!

Please avoid the area of West Chelsea near Clearfield. There was a high-speed chase along at least West Chelsea from Florida Ave across Highland which resulted in a vehicle accident blocks later near Clearfield. The suspect ran away from the scene on foot, and was apprehended by the police. There were no other injuries in the collision. At one point there were about 10 TPD units responding. TPD is now just working the vehicle accident near Clearfield with 2 patrol cars remaining. ... See MoreSee Less

Elyse Jenkins we only saw tons of police on our street with a guy in handcuffs on the sidewalk - found out later about the high speed chase - he crashed into a neighbor backing out of their driveway on Chelsea. 😢

It happened right in front of our house. I was about to walk outside all like 👩🏼‍🦯. Very eventful night!

We were all like…

There have been several recent questions about the chain link fence in Rivercrest Park. I reached out to the Director and she sent a Parks & Rec representative out to the park to investigate. The main stretch of fencing along the river was installed due to the removal of the docks. There are some hazardous conditions along the seawall that require the fence to remain in place until the dock project is completed. That project is in process, with a design/build specification being developed. There is not yet a solid timeline for the completion of this project. There also is another fence post identified with a small section of fence. Park staff are going to try and remove this piece immediately.

Hi neighbors near W Chelsea, nice enough people, but if you don’t want to discuss home improvement with a salesman, then don’t answer your door for a while.  ... See MoreSee Less

Never open your door to people you don't know.

My dogs scared him away. LOL! They sound like they are going to murder whoever comes to my door. Most people won't even stand on the porch!

There is a significant and growing depression in the street at 4900 N River Blvd near South Street, which a neighbor asked us to assist in escalating the matter. (See UPDATE in comments) The repair responsibility has been passed on to the Wastewater department for repair. In the meantime, please use caution when driving in that area. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Taylor! ... See MoreSee Less

Current situation…

UPDATE: I followed up again Monday and received the following reply yesterday: 'Thank you for writing to the City of Tampa regarding the Cave-In located at 318 W South Ave. The Mobility Department issued work order 90091 for an inspector to investigate the location to determine an appropriate course of action as soon as possible. We have investigated and it has been determined your request is a Wastewater concern, they have taken responsibility of the Cave-In at the above location as of 07/26/21." The letter went on to say that my contact information was shared and they requested Wastewater to send me a scheduling update. I'll keep you posted as I hear more.

Good job out of you. I just saw that yesterday and was going to call about it being repaired.
