North Shores Improvement Association Board Meeting Today - 4 p.m.

Find out info about Vilano Beach and North Beach at today's Meeting

There won't be a North Shores Improvement Association (NSIA) Forum this month, so you might as well come listen in at the Board of Directors meeting today at 4 p.m. The agenda is jammed back and I just might blog the results, but you never know.

The meeting will begin at the North Shores Improvement Association Building at 120 Meadow Avenue, Vilano Beach, Florida. It will then move next door to the old fire station. We will be discussing plans for the fire station building now that the new one has been built in South Ponte Vedra and this building is no longer used.

The Sunday Market will be discussed along with plans to make this farmer's and arts & crafts venue even better. Additionally the eviction notices for the mobile home occupants on Vilano Road will be discussed and our membership drive.

September 16-18th is the Florida Main Street Conference in Melbourne, FL. Register by August 21 to save $
