Join us Thursday, October 26, 2017 for an informal Q&A with Village staff about community issues that matter to you. This is the first gathering of the minds in a series of conversations titled “Inspire Pinecrest Community Conversations”. Our goal is to outline, prioritize and implement initiatives that are important to Village residents. If you can’t attend, send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is with much sadness that we share news of the passing of former vice mayor Leslie Bowe. Vice Mayor Bowe was a member of the founding Village Council. He served from 1996-2004 including two terms as vice mayor.
Mayor Joseph M. Corradino has directed that the flag at the Pinecrest Municipal Center be lowered to half-staff and stated “Leslie was an important part of our community. There from the founding, on our original Council, he was critical to setting the tone, the character and the quality of life we enjoy today. He was a close friend and a wonderful person. He will be missed.”
Sincerest condolences to Vice Mayor Bowe’s family and friends.
*Debris Pick-up Update*
Once the first pass is completed, a second pass is scheduled to pick up any remaining debris and to repair any unnecessary swale damage. Miami-Dade County Solid Waste Management estimates that the first pass will be concluded by the end of October. Debris removal contractors are working seven days a week from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. If you have any post-Irma concerns or questions, please email Irma@pinecrest-fl.gov.

Miami-Dade County Solid Waste Management requires residents to adhere to the following guidelines to ensure their debris piles are picked up:
Place hurricane debris into two separate piles at the curb/right-of-way – one for vegetative waste (tree limbs, branches, bushes) and the other for storm-damaged household contents.
Place piles at the curb away from fire hydrants, parked cars, utility poles, and mailboxes....
Do not place bagged household garbage and/or trash or household hazardous waste on debris piles.
Pinecrest Gardens was named one of the top 5 petting zoos in Miami. Come visit us soon!
