Feature presentation:
Learn What Is Happening In Your City: A State of the City Review By Naples’ City Manager
Naples City Manager Jay Boodheshwar will be the featured speaker at the Gulf Shore Association of Condominiums’ (GSAC) Annual Meeting next Tuesday, January 23 at 3:30 p.m. at the Admiralty Point Bay Clubhouse (2400 Gulf Shore Blvd. N.). Following his presentation, Jay will answer residents’ questions concerning what is happening in our City. This is a rare opportunity to listen to and talk directly with the senior city official who makes many of the most important decisions affecting the quality of our life in Naples, so please plan to attend.
Jay has been Naples’s City Manager since May 2022. In that capacity he is the chief executive officer and head of the administrative branch of the city government. Within four months of assuming that role, he was confronted by the mammoth challenges caused by Hurricane Ian, including the rebuilding and restoration of City facilities, parks, beach-ends, lakes (stormwater ponds), traffic control cabinets, and sewer systems. Collaborative initiatives with Collier County and other agencies encompassed debris removal, the emergency berm replacement project, the removal of derelict vessels and navigational hazards, and the installation of replacement signage. In less than two years, he has rebuilt what was a largely depleted senior staff, hiring a new Chief of Police, Chief of Fire-Rescue, Director of Information Technology Services, Director of Building, Deputy City Manager, CFO / Deputy City Manager, and Director of Parks, Recreation, & Facilities. Among the many new City projects undertaken under his watch are the Venetian Bay seawall reconstruction, critical lake restoration and water quality initiatives and the Beach Stormwater Outfall Project.
In his presentation, Jay will provide an overview of the issues and priorities for the City of Naples in the forthcoming year, with particular emphasis on those of most interest to GSAC residents, such as the proposed new building downtown to house the NCH Heart Institute, the completion of the seawall along the entire length of Venetian and Moorings Bay, the City’s stormwater beach outfall project, the airport studies, the coastal resilience and storm risk management study and the Army Corps of Engineers role, and the status of the Naples Beach Club project and the associated conservation easement.
