Letter to the Editor: Delray donors’ wishes disregarded

    For many years, until approximately two years ago, the city had encouraged donations to establish benches with commemorative plaques that would help upgrade the appearance of the beach walk. Frankly, with more encouragement from the city, all of the remaining original ugly wooden style benches could have been replaced.

    Fast forward to the current implementation of the beach master plan and a current city directive to replace all of the existing benches but not to include the…

By Rich Pollack



    Bad guys, beware.

    If you’re thinking about crossing into any part of Delray Beach east of the Intracoastal Waterway, you might want to think twice now that the Police Department has a new tool that makes it harder for you to come and go without being noticed.

    Since early last month, police have been using a permanent license-plate recognition system that scans the tags of cars passing by and compares them with what’s in several…

Delray Beach: CRA ignores its own policy, OKs subsidy for iPic

By Jane Smith

    

    A city agency ceded to the demands of the proposed iPic theater and agreed to reimburse its owner $400,000, contradicting its 15-month-old policy of not subsidizing downtown projects east of Swinton Avenue.

    The Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency members also agreed to provide at least $75,000 annually to cover the costs of maintaining 90 public parking spaces in the iPic garage. The early March vote was 6-1, with CRA member…

Delray Beach: iPic closing date at issue

    When does a real estate contract not contain a meaningful closing date?

    The issue was raised March 9 at the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency meeting.

    Two people asked the CRA board to end negotiations because the iPic theater owner was on its seventh amended contract with a Jan. 31 closing date. In December 2013, the theater owner agreed to pay $3.6 million for 1.6 acres that once housed the library and the Chamber of Commerce.

    The CRA attorney…

Delray Beach: PAC money and community support drive Delray election

By Jane Smith

    

    A political newcomer and a seasoned public servant will join the Delray Beach City Commission after they were handily elected March 14.

    The most contentious race was between retiree Jim Chard and his main contender, political novice Kelly Barrette, for Seat 2. Two others — police officer Richard Alteus and social worker Anneze Barthelemy — also ran for that seat, but garnered less than 10 percent of the vote each.
