NSB Board of REALTORS® Prepare Food Baskets for Local Families

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, FL – The New Smyrna Beach Board of REALTORS® (NSB BOR) has coordinated with two local charities to supply food baskets for the Thanksgiving holiday to local families in need.  The recipient families were chosen by each charity.

Each food basket will contain a turkey, ham and plenty of sides, giving each family enough food for the holiday and a few days of leftovers. Volunteers from the NSB BOR will prepare all of the food baskets on November 24, 2014.  The receiving families will arrive at Hidden Lakes Golf Club on November 25, 2014 to pick up the baskets.

The NSB BOR is able to purchase the food for each basket using money raised from fundraising events throughout the year such as the Lucky Duck Race and the annual golf tournament hosted at Hidden Lakes Golf Club.  The money raised will feed up to 300 local families this year.

The NSB BOR coordinated with the Gifts of Love Coalition, a food pantry located in Edgewater, and Halifax Urban Ministries (HUM), whose mission is homelessness prevention in Volusia and Flagler counties. The food will be purchased at the Publix Super Market on State Rd 44 and BJs Wholesale Club in Port Orange.


NSB earns award for public/private partnership program

 Next month, New Smyrna Beach will be recognized for its Community Redevelopment Agency’s (CRA) Opportunity Site Program. The Surfcoast Chapter of the Florida Planning and Zoning Association (FPZA) will present the Public /Private Partnership Award December 12 at the group’s Holiday Awards Gala in New Smyrna Beach.  

            “This innovative grant program has helped to spur the revitalization of the City’s Community Redevelopment Area through the use of public and private funds,” said Tony Otte, New Smyrna Beach community redevelopment/economic development director. “We’ve already seen improvements in property values and increased commercial occupancy in areas where grant projects are located.”

The CRA’s Opportunity Site Program provides funds to incentivize redevelopment on sites that are identified as “Opportunity Sites” in the CRA Master Plan Update, according to Otte.

For more information on grant programs offered by the New Smyrna Beach CRA, please log on to www.cityofnsb.com/grant-programs .

The FPZA is a statewide nonprofit organization of planners and other professionals dedicated to planning and developing a quality Florida, and a place for planners to exchange information and assist each other, according to the association’s website www.fpza.org.

NSB Fire Department welcomes new firefighters, announces promotions

 The New Smyrna Beach Fire Department recognized newly promoted Lt. Mike Greene and Driver Engineer Don Smith as well as newly hired firefighters Jeremy Macklefresh and Dylan Sempsrott on Tuesday, November 11, at the City Commission meeting.

           “It is gratifying to see these two wonderful young men starting their careers with the New Smyrna Beach Fire Department,” said Interim Fire Chief James Tauber.  “I am excited for and proud of our two veteran employees who were promoted and are embracing new challenges and responsibilities. We are fortunate to have these people on our team.”

The firefighters and their family members participated in a long-time firefighter tradition of getting pinned. This tradition signifies the entrance into the fire department or movement in the ranks by receiving their badge.

Lt. Greene has been a member of the department since 2005. Smith joined the agency in 2001.

 Maklefresh, 22, graduated from Atlantic High School where he was a varsity wrestler.  A Port Orange resident, Macklefresh is a certified emergency medical technician (EMT) who plans on using his experience to become a skilled firefighter and progress through the ranks.

Sempsrott, 20, is a New Smyrna Beach native and graduate of New Smyrna Beach High School where he was the captain of the cross country team. Sempsrott also is a certified EMT and plans on making his career with New Smyrna Beach.  The two new firefighters will replace open positions from recently retired members of the department.  They must complete a one-year probation period during which they are trained in all aspects of firefighting, Tauber said.

Police Department seeking accreditation; public comments encouraged

As part of its quest to achieve certification from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA), a team of assessors will examine all aspects of the New Smyrna Beach Police Department beginning December 10.

“The City has been working toward earning accreditation voluntarily for more than a year,” said Donna Lavallee, New Smyrna Beach interim police chief. “The assessors will comb through our policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services. It’s a very thorough, voluntary process to gain or maintain accreditation – a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence.”

During the three-day process, independent reviewers will ensure the agency has met specific requirements and prescribed standards, Lavallee added.

Citizens are encouraged to offer comments to the assessment team. Written comments about the New Smyrna Beach Police Department’s ability to meet the standards of accreditation may be sent to CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, FL, 32302 or by email to info@flaccreditation.org.

In an effort to ensure the professional delivery of public safety services, the CFA establishes standards, oversees an accreditation program, and awards accreditation to compliant Florida law enforcement agencies, according to the agency’s website. The New Smyrna Beach Police Department has to comply with approximately 260 standards in order to receive accredited status.  Many of the standards are critical to life, health and safety issues, Lavallee added.

Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, the full Commission will decide if the agency is to receive accredited status for three years.

The assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from similar agencies who will review written materials, interview individuals and visit offices and other locations where compliance can be witnessed.  The CFA Assessment Team Leader is Master Officer Tammy Farnham of the Stuart Florida Police Department.  Other team members are Assistant Chief Derrick Lewis of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Department and Samantha Jones of the Neptune Beach Police Department.

A copy of the standards is available for review by contacting New Smyrna Beach Police Department Accrediation Program Manager David Burns at (386) 424-2235 or Kelly Williams at (386) 424-2276.

For more information regarding CFA, please log on to  http://www.flaccreditation.org/.
