Root- ' Thank You ' for keeping a watchful eye for the hard carved Mahogany ' Wall Murals '. I'll pass that on . I've been told Flagler Live is searching for them so hopefully the historic treasures for Palm Coast will be found.
Wouldn't they be great to showcase at the City Hall ? We can hope. Again, ' Thanks '.

Re: The Palm Coast Project - Levitts & I.T.T. future planned City Santa Rosa Model Afric

Below is the first Christmas Card in The Palm Coast Project. Dr. J. Norman Young, First President of Levitt & I.T.T. Comm.Dev.Corp. ...sent each Palm Coaster a Christmas Card. We Palm Coast Pioneers were treated very well - We didn't have to pay for water for several years as in FREE , and I think free Garbage Pick Up. We also had FREE Golf at the Palm Coast Golf Course a.k.a. The Palm Harbor Golf Course. He gave each family a garden hose and a sprinkler. We had the greenest lawns in the World - it was good business acumen so that prospective buyers taking the required official ' Guided Tour ' of Palm Coast would see L U S H !
I hope you enjoy seeing through my eyes this early part of our wonderful Palm Coast Heritage:

Re: The Palm Coast Project - Levitts & I.T.T. future planned City Santa Rosa Model Afric

Below is another restoration project I just finished. This MAP was used by Charles Wayne to show prospective buyers the location of their respective property they were purchasing. I was able to save this and place it on one of my walls. Note: IT is so heavy I had to use a car jack to slowly l i f t it up into position. Then I used galvanized lag bolts / lead to hang it. It was successful....until...the galvanized lags started to b e n d . I quickly went to Ace and bought Stainless Steel lags and put them in place of the other bending lags.
to the right of this I will be displaying the *tools* used to build Palm Coast during its first months of construction - I'll be putting shovel, rake, axe, etc. that I am Steward of to be displayed for you to see.
I also have Palm Coasts' first American Flag - I'll display that too !
Early on we had no public buildings so we used the Neighborhood Park. Colonel Wickland, Clark Lane, smoking a huge Stogie would raise the flag, then he and his wife would *ring* a large Town Crier Bell - They would say...' Oyez..Oyez..Oyez...there is a meeting at the Neighborhood Park for everyone ' ...*ring* *ring*...*ring*...then then would say...' Bring a lawn Chair '...oyez..oyez...so we all would watch for the raised American Flag and hear the clang clang clang of the Town Crier Bell and grab our lawn chairs.. ( usually turquoise or bright yellow WEBBED lawnchairs - remember those ?...and we would all meet at Palm Coasts' First Neighborhood Park - That is where the Palm Coast Civic Association first started !
* Clang * * Clang * * Clang *...
Then Colonel Wickland would say under his breath...'...we are going to kick Levitt I.T.T. ass...' ...
*Clang* *clang* *clang*...
The reason for this anger was because WE wanted all the Amenities that we were promised and paid big money for right away ...
(-:
Once, there were huge issues...so Levitt I.T.T. pulled the plug on electricity / lighting...that was the night ' Palm Coast Went completely DARK '.
(-:
Now you see why we, well...er...some of us put ' Big Bright Yellow LEMONS ' on houses !
and that is how we stopped the largest conglomerate in the World !..

Root - you mentioned 'crown' which made me think that maybe it was a ' Birthday Party ' Hat. Anyway, I passed this info. onto those looking for the Wall Mural Treasures - Jay Gardner, a.k.a. James Gardner Jr. ( Flagler County Property Appraiser ) the son of James Gardner, the third I.T.T. Community Development Corporation President. Hopefully either son / father would be able to identify where they were originally located as a starting point. Thanks for your efforts ! We can hope !

Root - below please find some of the Levitt I.T.T. Bathroom PINK tiles, bullnose, squares, toothpaste holder and cup holder and towel bars and towel bar holders. Our neighborhood group communicates and tries to save 'spares'. IF you have a crack or two of your PINK bathroom tiles and need replacements we will give some to you. Yep....you have the hard to find Levitt I.T.T. Pink Bathroom sink. The Needhams, 5 Clark Lane in This Old Palm Coast House also need a Levitt I.T.T. PINK sink and you need a Blue bathroom sink. IF you will watch for a PINK sink for the Needhams we will watch out for a BLUE bathroom sink for you.
Also, I have a few Levitt ITT spare yellow bathroom tiles, but only some spare yellow tiles.
Pls. let us know if you need some PINK squares or if everything is intact and o.k. for you. Thanks.
all of our Pink tile is in perfect shape, we do not have the pink sink though, We do have the blue and I will gladly give it to the Needems when I get another to replace it soon.

' Thank You ' Root - I'll pass this information onto Rhonda and Shawn Needham tomorrow. I'll also watch for a Venetian Pink Sink for you - they are VERY hard to find. I found mind on Carswell in Daytona - a lady there was *fighting* with me for it. It was in my hands and she told me...'..I WANT that sink ...'. If you touch base with the Needhams ask them to show you their Wall of History and their encouragement letter from ' The Whitehouse '. They also have a Parrot - ' fletcher the parrot ' has a very salty mouth tho'...(-:

I was working on some information for Realtors to hopefully enhance their Real Estate Listings, hopefully $ell houses and increase selling prices in Palm Coast / Flagler

DBCC relives 30 years in pictures
By: Jim Miskelly
PALM COAST – Daytona Beach Community College celebrated its 30th Anniversary, complete with an art exhibit, historic photos depicting the 30 years of growth of the college and a concert by the DBCC Concert Band under the direction of Douglas Peterson.
The Art exhibit included 186 paintings and pencil drawing by DBCC students of art instructors Pam Greisenger and Barbara Craig. Many of the paintings were for sale. Dr Paul Thompson, vice president in charge of all DBCC Campuses, displayed a framed sketch on napkins, with the inscription : “Flagler Palm Coast Center” Original Plan, approved in concept by Dr. Charles H. Polk, Pine Lakes Country Club. Nov. 1982. by Paul Thompson, DBCC, Jerry Full, ITT, Gary Walters, ITT.” Thompson said the original plan followed the concept of Merriweather Post’s ‘Wolftrap’ open air theater in Virginia.
Attendance at the evening holiday concert was quite sparse, due to the cold weather. The band’s opening number was Leroy Andersons’ ‘Sleigh Ride.” Charles T. Gabriele conducted the band during the performance of his composition originally played at the dedication of the Flagler Campus,
“Palm Coast Festival Park March.”
Several Christmas numbers and a sing-along entertained the audience, Sharon Crow, alumni affairs director representing the DBCC Foundation and Alumni Association, and vice president Dr. Len O’Hara presented two full art scholachips to the DBCC campus. Contact Larry Goodemote at 445.4030.
Guest Conductor – Professor Charles T. Gabriele conducts his own composition.

Navy Band Orlando Thrills Capacity Crowd at Center
By Jim Miskelly
PALM COAST – It was a first for Palm Coast. In and ideal setting for a Sunday afternoon band concert, an overflow crowd estimated at nearly 1,000 packed the Daytona Beach Community College Flagler Center’s new outdoor theater for the performing arts for a performance by the Navy Band Orland, under the direction of Lt. William D. Myers.
Palm Coast Professor Charles T. Gabriele conducted the band in playing his own composition ” Naval Training Center March,” and the premier performance of his “Palm Coasts Festival Park March.” commemorating the opening of the Cultural Arts Pavilion. Gabriele, former composer in residence of the Naval Academy Band, earned a standing ovation from the audience and the band alike. Gabrielle dedicated the march to ICDC President Alan Smolen, who in turn shared the honor with ICDC Executives Gary Walters and Vince Viscomi for their part in planning the center.
The program opened with the ‘Star Spangled Banner,” setting the pace for a patriotic afternoon. Center Director Larry Goodemote welcomed the audience and County Commission Merle Shoemaker read a Flagler County Commission resolution proclaiming May 20, 1981 as “American Legion Flagler Post 115 Day.”
The American Legion Post, chartered in 19919 is the oldest veterans ‘ organization in Flagler County and was a sponsor of the concert with the cooperation of DBCC’s Flagler Center and ICDC Shoemaker noted this was the first event at which all local veterans’ organizations were represented and welcomed . American Legion Flagler Post 115. Palm Coast VFW Post 8696 , Flagler County FW Post 5213. DAV Chapter MOWW. Shoemaker presented a copy of the resolutions to the American Legion Post Adjutant Cora Buckles.
Rear Adm. Pauline M. Hartington, USN, congratulated Professor Gabriele for his years of service in the Navy and cited him for his compositions.
The concert concluded with ‘Servicemen on Parade,” a medley of familiar service songs with an invitation for former veterans to stand when their service connected song was played.

Re: The Palm Coast Project - Levitts & I.T.T. future planned City Santa Rosa Model Afric

My family and I bought three house/lot / lots from Levitt I.T.T. before the Palm Coast Project Opened. I seem to recall we Palm Coast Pioneers were offered TEN years of free golf; additionally they picked up the utility bills for a couple of years...lucky us !
This is my Palm Coast Golf Course ' Membership Card '

One of the first Advertising used to promo and sell The Palm Coast Project :

PalmHarborGolfClubAD.jpg

The designer signs first used at the Palm Coast Golf Course. To my knowledge Flagler Beachs' Ocean Palms was the first historic Golf Course to bring Golf to Flagler County. Then came the Palm Coast Projects' ' Championship ' Golf Course first known as ' The Palm Coast Golf Course ', then, when Pine Lakes Golf Course opened, the second of the ' Four Sisters ' it became known as ' The Palm Harbor Golf Course '.
Golf Course designer signs were GREEN; whereas our showcase golf course Neighborhood designer signs were brown.
PalmHarborGolfCourseDesignerSign.jpg

At first there was just the ' Casper Drive ' Entrance. ( named after Golf Legend William ' Billy Casper ) with the palm harbor drive use to get to the Barn , for deliveries, etc.)

At the later back entrance was ' Palm Harbor Golf Course ' in the white letter you see. I am steward of a couple of the original letters. I ask that it be restored but that hasn't happened.

The first Concrete/Block/Stucco 19th Hole Clubhouse we paid for. It was later expanded by Herb Bratloff, then it was demolished and we got that trailer thing:

I keep asking and asking and asking and asking for a Historic MARKER since there is so much Heritage and History there - I am thinking to ask Honorable Heidi Shipley to help. Maybe she will have pity on me / us and try to get it since we paid for the Golf Course twice. The first time we paid we got the entire banana.....then...sadly...when we had to kick in for the restoration the second time after it was destroyed and ravaged....we lost about 14.62 + acres...for those dense condos...Hopefully she will have pity...
So much we paid for now only exists in my memories; a positive thing tho'...there is left the original McDonalds where I can get a Happy Meal - thats' a plus

Re: The Palm Coast Project - Levitts & I.T.T. future planned City Santa Rosa Model Afric

Just amazing to see the areal image compared to the area image today. One small Golf Coarse home development and a few canal homes. What just had canals and no houses, yet are now filled. And the surrounding area in the old areal image wasn't developed.

So if if I am looking at the new condo development plan correctly, would the area that shows land/ (possibly golf coarse area) between Cooper Ln and Palm Harbor Dr be turning in to condos??

Thank you again. You are always a wealth of information and I really enjoy learning and seeing how the community has evolved.

Not only is there a large addition to impermeable soil that will increase the run off you will notice the wildlife area and mitigation is reduced too.

Wow - we're getting to very high *densitiy* - from 1970 through about 1996 the Palm Coast Project for all last Century had a low density - '...2.7 dwelling units per acres...less than that of Beverly Hills...'.
We're supposed to have 15,000 acres of 'Green Enclaves' - open space requirements for Palm Coaters , and Federally ORDERED '...significant areas of conservation...' and '...significant areas of preservation...' and '...significant areas of Public Recreation...' ORDERED by that Federal ' Consent Agreement '.

We were designed by the University of Florida and the University in Norway at Trondheim to withstand a 100 year flood without any water getting into our houses:



Does anyone know the *density* and safety of our sections/communities now this Century ?

Wow... you know that is really sad that they would let or take all the beauty away. That is what drew me to Palm Coast! How clean, refreshing, the wildlife and natural beauty with trees... it was so much more refreshing to see what Palm Coast has in comparison to Ormond/ Daytona Beach area. But seeing the gardens and waterfalls photo is really sad to think they would do away with this type of natural beauty.

Wouldn't it be great to turn back time knowing what you know today.

Yes, it is very sad. Consequently I contacted Honorable Heidi Shipley, City of Palm Coast City Council so maybe she can help us get all the many Heritage and Historic MARKERS and High Honors, getting the City of Palm Coast closer to becomming a Leadership City like many Florida Leadership Cities near us already are and lightyears ahead of us. We can hope.

Maybe some of the crackercoasters here can contact the City Council of Palm Coast and ask that City Council tries very hard to become a ' Leadership City ' complete with Heritage and Historic MARKERS and maybe the City Council can help us become a responsible 'certified local governments' like so many of our neighbors already are -
The STate of Florida Historic Preservation Offices already told me they would work with the City of Palm coasts' City Council to help them become responsible ' Certified Local Government' , etc for free -
That would lead us up to getting funding, Grant$$$, etc.
We can hope -

Re: The Palm Coast Project - Levitts & I.T.T. future planned City Santa Rosa Model Afric

( for the newer Palm Coasters - The Palm Coast Project and this area is very Heritage and History Rich. We are eligible for ' St. Josephs Plantation '; Bon Terre ancient Archaeological and Paleontological site - 7 Mastadons and a Wooly Mammoth unearthed here by the Smithsonian, and so much more, then we have even so much more currect eligiblity - several from the University of Florida who strongly suggest we go to a higher level and apply for Heritage and Historic Markers from the STate of Florida...then we have this...Penn States design plan for the Sewer system for ' The Palm Coast Project ' - the waters here were polluted and the shellfish not edible....before Palm Coast...then the Penn State System was copied and used by Levitt & I.T.T. Community
for the Palm Coast Project
( Some levity here - every time you *flush*...say...' Thank You Penn State ' (-:
Every time you eat local fish...say...' Thank You Penn State '....

Anyway...keep your fingers crossed that Penn States' Historic Committee approves a MARKER relating to Palm Coast -

The United States of America National Museum of American History -

This morning I awoke to a letter from ' The Smithsonsian'.
They are happy to include ' The Palm Coast Project ' in their Collection.
I ran around like a crazy person trying to put Levitt Items on Disc...then I went to the Shell Station to make copies of narratives...but their copy machine was broken...then I drove through the traffic on St. Joes' Grade a/k/a Palm Coast Parkway to go to Staples. I ran inside and BLAM...two of their copy machines were down,....only the color copier was operational. The people there understood my plight and showed me how to make b/w copies on their color Copier....
...then I put two discs I had and the narrative and mailed it to ' The Smithsonian ' priority mail.
What a joyous day for me...I bought from Levitt & I.T.T. before ' The Palm Coast Project ' opened....and now...The Smithsonian is including ' The Palm Coast Project ' in our National History Museum.
What a joyous day.

I have much more that the Smithsonian wants that I couldn't get to readily...and I will do it slowly but surely !

I hope I have made you proud too !

Thank you for your support. Please pass this on to your friends and neighbors:

'Palm Coast has made ' The Smithsonian ' !

I wanted to share yet another document that was sent to ' The Smithsonian'. Obviously this is the house I am Steward of, you can see the ' African Safari' staging that was done by Levitt & I.T.T. which I am slowly but surely replicating:
This is truly a joyous day for me; I hope you also share in the pride too !
Thank you again for your support.

Gotta' go...The Smithsonian is asking for alot more - Their last letter closing to me was '...Thank you for thinking of The Smithsonian ...' - wasn't that nice !
Again, Thank you all for your encouragement and support.
I truly hope the newer Palm Coasters have a 'sense of being ' a ' sense of Place'. Hooray, Yippee, Hallelujah..
Palm Coast has made The Smithsonian
YEAH !

Kotch, Root, Tail Teaser, K9Luvin, KathyinAR, and all - Truly ' Thank You ' for your encouragement and support.
I just checked USPS ' Tracking # ' and the first package I sent to 'The Smithsonian ' has just arrived in Washington, D.C. it is projected to be on route and will arrive at ' The Smithsonian ' this November 12th, tomorrow.
How exciting is this!
I though I would also share with you all another item with was requested / sent to The Smithsonian so you can be part of this exciting time for 'The Palm Coast Project ' :
( I'm beginning to start on the next batch of *stuff* about Palm Coast that 'The Smithsonian ' is asking for as soon as I can - there is just so much that I am Steward of that must be done - slowly but surely !)
Levitt & Sons & I.T.T. ' The Andalusia ' Model:

Presently there is a Levitt & Sons & I.T.T. ' The Andalusia ' Model soon to be For Sale on Cooper Lane.
We hope the Architectural Integrity is kept intact; we can hope.

Look at that ' I Dream of Jeanie ' Bottle on the Table and that ' Rat Pack ' -Las Vegas Dean Martin-ish ' Martini Pit . I think this was called / staged as ' Arabian Nights '.

I hope you all enjoy this along with me. Again ' Thank You ' all for your encouragement and support. Truly, Many ' Thanks '.
