Public Works roadway work update at BAC

Terrific discussion and Q&A at BAC meeting yesterday about storm water work being done from Lesner Bridge to Great Neck Road plus updates on infrastructure improvements to Pleasure House Road and Shore Drive Phase 3 and Phase 4 timelines.

Join us Monday May 24 at our meeting that included a presentation update Q&A about storm water projects in Shore Drive community.

Some SeeClickFix switch to VB Works questions answered.

From Information Technology Department:

Will SeeClickFix Account be automatically migrated to VB Works? Users will not automatically be migrated over to the new app, citizens will need to create new accounts.

Will custom maps created in SeeClickFix be automatically migrated to VB Works? No

Will current open SeeClickFix issues be automatically migrated to VB Works? SeeClickFix issues are not being migrated over to Salesforce, however they will continue to be worked and resolved in their system of record. (Editor’s comment: GREAT!)

What should SeeClickFix users do and when?
Users can signup for a Salesforce account today and start submitting requests via the updated app or web portal.

We haven’t heard back yet about Privacy questions about all the data Sales Force asks for to use the VB Works new system.

You have questions about SeeClickFix abrupt switch to VB Works? We don’t have answers.

We’ve been patiently waiting for feedback about the abrupt switch that happened last week. We’ve reached out to several people & added a Request using the Guest feature of VB Works and haven’t heard back yet.

A few of our questions are:

Will SeeClickFix Account be automatically migrated to VB Works?

Will custom maps created in SeeClickFix be automatically migrated to VB Works?

Will current open SeeClickFix issues be automatically migrated to VB Works?

What should SeeClickFix users do and when?

Will your office put out guidance about the switch?

We also have some questions about Privacy as the new company behind VB Works – Incapsulate, which is a subsidiary of Sales Force, asks for what appears to be an enormous amount of information to use VB Works. We could find no info about ThreeOneOneCapsule.

We’ve also asked about the details for each item Sales Force is requesting to use the VB Works app system.

We sincerely hope VB Works becomes as popular as SeeClickFix was!

If you have any feedback about the switch, please let us know!

SeeClickFix no more. Use new mobile app VB Works.

In the works since August ‘20, view Press Release, VB Works is new system to alert COVB of issues in your neighborhood.

We’ve been curious since last Thursday when apparently the switch from SeeClickFix was made.

Questions we have include if SeeClickFix issues will migrate to new system or if the data is gone. Do SeeClickFix accounts get migrated to new VB Works and if custom maps & automated alerts for certain locations can be customized. We’ll of course let you know when we know.

SDCC Riterates Opposition to Short Term Rental (STR) Overlay District for East Shore Drive (Cape Story by the Sea)

In light of the recent shootout at a STR and the upcoming Planning Commission vote on the STR overlay district for East Shore Drive, the SDCC has sent the following email to the Planning Commission and City Council reiterating its opposition to any STR overlay in the Shore Drive Corridor.

Dear Planning Commission Members,

As we approach your Wednesday hearing on the proposed Short Term Rental ordinance change, I wanted to share this recent occurrence in Chic’s Beach in the Shore Drive area.  Please take a moment to comprehend what you are proposing for the Cape Story by the Sea neighborhood and how similar occurrences can impact well established city neighborhoods.  Your recommendations, similar to those of City Council, will effectively change our residential neighborhood into a tourist destination similar to the oceanfront.

The following statement and attached flyer were provided by 3rd precinct officers.

Additionally, I would like to let you know that the on going issues associated with Air BnBs Rentals was a topic of conversation at the most recent Chiefs meeting. Officers have been informed that they are to forward any Air BnB issues up the chain of command. This will help develop a stronger argument backed with statistics when the issue is addressed by the city.

Again, to date, no reply or data has been provided to our requests regarding the total # of homes, total possible STRs, and explanation as to why the Cape Story neighborhood is targeted as a STR overlay compared to any other neighborhood in VB.  We have asked for information the past 2+ weeks to help with the upcoming hearing.  Since no data or any type of civic engagement outreach has been attempted for this entire process, it is still the Shore Drive Community Coalition’s recommendation to oppose any overlay created in the Cape Story neighborhood, no matter how the boundary is manipulated.

Thank you for your review of this information and we hope that you recognize that this whole process is flawed and any recommended overlay along Shore Drive is unjustified and just wrong.

Sincerely,

Todd Solomon

Shore Drive Community Coalition President
