Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

The Board of Trustees held a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to celebrate the return of the Bloomingdale signs at the Culbreath Road and Bloomingdale Avenue entrance to the community! The ceremony took place on Saturday, August 4, at 9 a.m., at the sign located on the Campo Family YMCA side of the entrance. Pictured from left: Mark Horst, BSTD Treasurer; Rusty Jones, BSTD Trustee; Dave West, BSTD President; George May, Bloomingdale Homeowners Association President; Hillsborough County Commissioner Stacy White; Tom Leech, BSTD Vice President; Claire Letkiewicz, Bloomingdale Cove Homeowners Association President; and Jay Kittle, BSTD Secretary. The replacement and re-landscaping of the signs at the entrance was made possible by a mini-grant awarded to the District by the County thanks to the Board of County Commissioners and the Office of Neighborhood relations. The signs were removed over 2 years ago during the construction of the new intersection at Culbreath Road and Bloomingdale Avenue. The District responded to the numerous inquiries about and requests for the signs to be replaced so that the community would again be identified at that entrance, and was able to do so without using taxing district dollars.

Referendum for Tax Assessment Increase on August 28 Primary Ballot!

 A Referendum has been placed on the ballot for the August 28, 2018, Primary Election to increase the current annual tax assessment from $130 to $170 per year--just $40 or about $3.33 per month! This increase is imperative to keep the aging Bloomingdale Community common areas maintained--the last increase was over 12 years ago.
