Root - Yep, I thought the same with Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, etc., the rat pack lounging in the Levitt ' Andalusia Model - Drinks in hand, cigars, playboy bunnies lying all over the WHITE carpet -

K9Luvn - we are trying very hard on our Heritage and History for The Palm Coast project - there is just so much on our bucket list -

Tail Teaser - yep, at first I didn't know if I would like the Levitt ' African Safari ' but it truly now is growing on me. I have many people stopping in after looking and reading the Historic MARKER - recently I had a family ( I think ) from Bejing China - they knocked on my door . They spoke no English but I let them look around. They were very kind. I'm really trying for good P.Relations for Palm Coast and these visitors -

KathyinAK - well...I had slowed down a little on my African Safari restoration - WHY...several months ago Dr. Mery, lives at 29 Casper Drive knocked at my door and asked me to help her try for a Historic MARKER for her house. The Deadline was this past November 11th. She had to have everything, all research / documentation, Bibliography etc., completed, along with the suggested ' NARRATIVE ' for the State of Florida Historic Committee to reveiw and approve or / disapprove. Anyway...we finished on about November 9th, and everthing is on its was to the ' Historic Committee '. ( They are really tough...but that is to be expected for this high honor ) . We are thinking that the Committee will review Dr. Merys' application before this Christmas. ( they meet quarterly, accept all state of Florida applications from all over the State. Then the review each application, one by one and approve or disapprove)
We are keeping our fingers crossed the approve !
Dr. Mery even did her Bibliography in the New York U. Bibliographic style. whew...that was long and hard.

Now....just recently the Smithsonian is asking for *stuff*....because Dr. Merys' house is included in the first batch to the Smithsonian I had to contact the ' Historic Committee ' and notify them of this new development. It is up to them to now evaluate the total thing now )

Tonight I went to Staples and started xeroxing more *stuff* for The Smithsonian. I put it together and went to the Post Office and packet # 2 is on its way to The Smithsonian.

Now, back to Dr. Merys' - these are BEFORE pictures of her LEVITT ' The De Bary ' Model:

MeryGableDeBaryGarageFrontA.jpg

MeryGableDeBaryGarageFrontADetailCloseUP.jpg

MeryGambleDeBaryFullFrontGarageView.jpg

MeryGambleDeBaryFullFrontView.jpg

The above were the BEFORE Pics. Dr. Mery has the fully AFTER pictures required by the State Historic Committee. Tonight after I xeroxed at sTaples I stopped in and she is beginning to think about, if if if if approved how she will handle the 'digging In ' Ceremony.

( Note the BEAMS....they had rotted so she had to bring in TIMBER from Jacksonville to restore that Mid century Modern Architecture (..don't say anything but between us, those two beams cost her $ 700.00.)
(-:

I don't know which way the State Committee will Vote...approve or disapprove...especially now since ' The Smithsonian ' is in the picture. I don't know. As soon as I hear the good or bad news I will share it here.

Again, truly, ' Thank You ' everyone for your encouragement and support. I am hoping in some small was that you also feel proud of the accomplishments and are part of our Heritage and History. Again, Truly, ' Thank You'.

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

Below is a picture used by LEVITT & I.T.T. to advertise / market the Palm Coast Project. This is what was *showcased* in their Worldwide Advertising. Now, Dr. Merys' house look almost exactly like this NOW...the ' after '.

Note even the *light* was restored ( I had a spare original light and I gave it to her to be historicall accurate).
I don't have the AFTER pictures, she has them; if you want to see the end result she is 29 Casper Drive ( named after famous Golfer ' William ' Billy ' Casper ' - the first street in Palm Coast.)

For the newer Palm Coasters - Palm Coast Colors are Navy Blue, Bright White, and Garfield Orange/Orange....but not the above colors...it is one of two things...Levitt & I.T.T. hadn't selected the official colors yet...or...it was a print error. I don't know which. The picture below was one of the many documents sent to the Smithsonian in my first packet.

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

Below is the ' Architectural Rendering ' that Dr. Mery used to restore her Levitt & I.T.T.
''The De Bary". ( those are jpegs I'm Steward of and the 'yellowing' is age ). Atypically houses had Carports because of Florida outdoor living but garages etc. were options- maybe a cost factor too -
DeBary Artists 50dpi.jpg

As an aside, another neighbor in our Levitt Showcase Golf Course Neighborhood saw my discs going to the Smithsonian. She asked if she could go to Staples and have a picture made - She made it 2 feet x 2 feet and will put it in her entrance foyer. It is at the Studio being framed and as soon as she gets it and hangs it I will try to take a picture of it to show you.
Truly, it is ' Outstanding '. A great Statement Historical Piece for Daphnes' house.
Note: Architectural Rendering done by Mr. Richard Baehr - famous Architectural renderinger... He taught at I think Perdue. Donald Trump calls him ' The Blue Sky Guy ' . You can see in this picture why Donald Trump calls him that.

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

I sent yet another packet to 'The Smithsonian' per their request. I thought you all would like to see this progress and so that you would also be part of this important time:

Hopefully these efforts will bring Researchers, Doctoral Candidates, Architects studying Mid- Century Modern Architecture, Tourists, etc., to Palm Coast. We can hope.

I hope you enjoy being part of this -

Palm Coast Project - '...Largest housing development in the Country ...'

Orlando Sentinel

'Tis a Privilege to Live in Central Florida

Preservers Applaud Palm Coast

By Peggy Poor

Sentinel Staff

Dramatically changing the damaged image of usually damned developers, I.T.T. - Levitt Corp., now building Palm Coast, the Country's largest housing project in Flagler County, is winning kudos instead of kick from conservationists.

More than that, with long-range environmental planning and careful study by staff ecologists, the mammoth venture may not only set an example for future would be despoilers but come up with some urgently sough-answers to pollution problems.

For Example, I.T.T.-Levitt scientists are investigating why St. Johns and Flagler County shellfish harvests had to be prohibited because of contaminated waters. The hope is to reverse conditions that required the ban, if possible.
Preliminary findings indicate sewage dumped principal culprit according to Dr. Stanley Dea, the firm's chief ecologist.

New Concept

Therefore in order not to aggravate this situation I.T.T.-Levitt is making detailed engineering analysis of sewage disposal possibilities to come up with designs new for Florida, and cheaper, Dr. Dea said.
Because Florida's flat terrain and high ground water level have made gravity systems costly, developers have tended to use septic tanks, But septic systems have become a serious factor in the pollution picture.
America's biggest conglomerate, therefore, is exploring feasibility of pressure and vacuum systems which may be tried for the first time in the Florida venture.
Meanwhile, in the first section now under construction, 20,000 acres of a total of 100,000 , sewage will get secondary treatment prior to storage in a polishing lagoon, providing tertiary treatment, Effluent thus purified but still nutrient rich will be used to irrigate as a 18 hole golf course.

Sewage Studies
This recycling, by an adaptation of nature's own system, is a relatively new concept in sewage disposal developed at Pennsylvania State University and now in use in several California communities and in one near Tallahassee.
Much of the pollution and " murder " of streams and lakes, such as Apopka, is the result of eutrophication or over-enrichment by nutrients, which are not removed by treatment plants.
As most plants discharge into some body of water, pollution results. If, however, the treated effluent is sprayed on vegetation, as was demonstrated at Penn State and is planned for Palm Coast, it irrigates and fertilizes crops and even raises the ground water table. The vegetation absorbs the nutrients that would eventually destroy streams, lakes, and estuaries.

Using Willows
Palm Coast ecologists plan to plant Florida vegetation with particularly high absorption qualities, such as willows.
Engineer have devised a mechanical apparatus which can fit in a residential size and style building so the neighborhood view will not be spoiled by an unsightly treatment plant. A chemical has been developed that eradicates the odor, according to Dick Beadle, Palm Coast public affairs officer.
The University of Florida's famed coastal engineering department, whose $ 1 million facilities are now considered unexcelled in the United States, is advising how best to lay out the system of canals for waterfront property so that tidal action will keep them flushed clean Beidl said.
A brief flurry of local tears that the big dredge churning inland from the intracoastal Waterway channel to scoop out a yacht basin would increase turbidity in the estuaries has been set at rest.
Dike Employed
Although the dredge is operating in the man made cut not subject to the provisions of the Randall Act, ITT-Levitt will still 'plug' the opening into the INtracoastal with a dike until its earth stirring digging is completed and settled.
"It's the cleanest operation I've seen. No problems," said Larry Shanks of the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission at Very Beach, who inspected the site last week.
The Operation is pumping the material removed by a 1 1/4 mile pipe line that crosses the waterway and runs under highway A1A.
With a 17000-horsepower booster pump the excavated sands is being hoisted up and down over this depression just behind the sand dunes which rim the ocean shore.
The hold will be filled to a height of about 20 feet above sea-level, about even with the dunes; and this will be the site of a motel, probably to be operated by Sheraton, another I.T.T. subsidiary.
Dunes Retained
Shanks had nothing by praise also for this beachfront plan which contemplates leaving the natural dunes as a stabilizer against erosion.
Palm Coast experts are also studying the whys and wherefores of erosion and exploring preventative treatment, according to Dea.
Palm Coast has also handed its brain trust the choking problem of week eradication, he said.
At the display site where six model homes and a four-story office building with viewing tower are under construction, bulldozers wove an intricate path around trees marked for salvation instead of knocking everything down.
This more costly method has won approval of forestry officials, and Palm Coast expects it to pay off in long-run appeal of attractive landscaping to prospective purchasers.
Space Advantage
In the master land use plan, thousands of acres will be preserved in the natural state, Dea said.
Additionally there will be parks and artificial ribbon lakes, Studies are being made to ascertain optimum factore for maintaining maximum sport fish populations in these.
Palm Coast's planning advantage, Beidl said, lies in having control of the entire 100,000 acres. To get this vast land area in focus, it can be compared with the area of all five boroughs of Greater new York City, for example, which cover only about half that territory, or with the city of Detroit which spreads over about 88,000 acres.
Projection is for an ultimate population here of only about 750,000 as compared with New York's 11.5 million and Detroit's four million.
An area comparison closer to home is with Disney's 27,000 acres.
Strict Zoning
They assure adherence to this careful planning, Dr. Dea said is a model zoning and building code is being formulated, which will not merely meet, but "exceed" in stringency all federal , state and local regulations, including those necessary to control air, water, solid waste, radiation, noise, and vibration pollution.
This will cover not just major regulations affecting industries which might be attracted to the area, but also folksy questions, such as when and even whether residences may have trash incinerators in their back yards.
Even one possible future doubt raised apparently will be resolved in favor of conservation, according to Harold Burrows, an engineer on the project.
Line Questioned
Questions arose at the recent county commissioners meeting about a bulkhead line for Long Creek which branching off the Matanzas River, meanders through the tract a few miles north of the first "Five Year Plan" development now under construction.
Some 3,000 to 9,000 acres on the creek are submerged public lands under control of the Trustees of the Internal Improvement Fund.
Burrows conceded that prior to recent legislative action, this would have been " prime development property."
But under present law "we will sit down with the Department of Natural Resources and do what they tell us we can."

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

Root- a question, is it possible to UPLOAD all this to disc?
I ask 'cuz I am thinking that so much about The Palm Coast Projects' Heritage and History is recorded here - that is the *details* - for instance...I can't recall when The Needhams and I were lugging Levitts' Blue Toilet down Club House Drive to save it, or details about the Matanzas Woods Golf Course, etc . - yes, unique details but, it clearly shows the dates / time stamps / comments, etc. all important for ' Community Involvement ' and ' Community Development ' in all this - or ya' think it is not possible or dumb?

Collection ?
I've already sent two packets of the stuff they are asking for...and I have another that I just xeroxed almost ready to go to the Smithsonian...
I keep looking around my house and I have alot of Levitt & I.T.T.'s *stuff* that I am Steward of...all which should be sent - ....I guess it is going to be on-going and '...one packet at a time...'.
Can you imagine how many researchers / Doctoral candidates / Architects, etc.,....will be using all this for their Study and Dissertations !

Levitt & I.T.T. Santa Rosa Model update:
This is where I am as of today. I thought you all would like to see my progress so far - I'm getting closer and closer -
SantaRosaUpdate11282915.jpg

AfricanSafariGiraffe.jpg

AfricanSafariKitchen.jpgSanta Rosa Entire Page 300dpi.jpg

For the newer Palm Coasters - I've presented this so you can see if you are interested in part of Palm Coasts' Heritage and History.
The top picture is where I am now, today.
The other pictures are the original Levitt & I.T.T. Worldwide Advertising of the nine Models initiall offered and promoted on three Continents of the World.
The PARTY stuff you see above the dining room table I left there for my grandkids - they always like parties/balloons/ candles, etc.
Anyway...you can see the TIKI BAR I finished making that I will move to the kitchen when the new carpet, yes...BRIGHT YELLOW...kinda shag...is ordered. The white duncan type sofa table or whatever you call it I have finished making and I only have to *darken* the stain to match the picture. The Lamp is a new addition, by that I mean..I was driving down the road and someone pitched this RETRO lamp. I have been looking for one like that for years and years...and BLAM..it appears on the side of the road. I rewired it, cleaned it up and BLAM..again another component that I needed. There are two bar stools ( like the Blonde lady is sitting on ) to the left of the Tiki Bar. The Stop Sign you see is an original Street Sign first used in Palm Coast - That was Levitt & I.T.T. 'Designers' Signs - for the Golf Course which were 'Green'. Years ago I dragged this out of a dumpster to save it. On the work table I have in the living room you will see I am making that Hollywood Regency greek key mirror, I am close to finishing that. On the coffee table you will see a 1974 National Geographic. My brother is after me to search / buy on. ( He is a purist and doesn't fully realize my cash burn rate has been very high on this Historic Restoration, but, am I having one hell of a time doing this !)
My Grandkids tell their classmates & friends '...My grandfather has Wild Animals in his house ! - OMG.
Soon, I'll have to remove the excess furniture, like the cherry lighted china, and that curio lighted cablinet, etc. Does anyone need that ?..if so I'll use the proceeds to apply to that upcoming outrageously priced YELLOW carpet that I will need. (-:
Again, ' Thank You ' everyone for your encouragement and support. I truly from my heart say ' THANKS '.
I hope you enjoy this and gives a sense of place for Palm Coast.
Again, ' Thank You ' all very much.

I have to find that GIRAFFE...and also that Coffee Table.

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

The State of Palm Coast

On February 4, 1987, I.T.T. Community Development Corporation President Jim Gardner delivered his State of Palm Coast address to the Palm Coast Civic Association. He reported "nothing but good news," and included in that category were challenges ahead for I.T.T.-C.D.C. and local citizens. Here are excerpts:

" The taxable value of the Palm Coast Service District has increased almost 600 percent since 1980, from $ 102 Million to $ 566 million at the end of 1986. During that time the population increased from about 4,500 to almost 10,000 today. In other words, while the population has doubled, the assessed value for tax purposes has increased almost six times. Economic growth is the primary reason...bringing in more tax revenues without additional burden on residents...
Palm Coast's emerging personality is a combination of our company's activity and the strong, ongoing commitment of residents and local government...Palm Coast has matured to the state where responsibilities for public services are being picked up by the public-a sign of a healthy, progressive community...
For years, C.D.C. was the only game in town. That isn't true anymore. We have a good balance here now...industry, recreation , outside businesses coming in, healthy competition in the marketplace, government facilities, public services, schools, activities and residents who are making a difference. We remain the major catalyst, but our involvement in the running of this community is diminishing, as Palm Coast residents move toward self-government and self-reliance...
Palm Coast citizens are moving ahead on many fronts...


The quality of our school system, the physical plant the instructional staff, are all expanding because the citizens perceived the need and were willing to meet it:

A group of citizens bucked the many obstacles and went doggedly ahead to create from their own pockets and sweat a new rifle and archery range available to the public:

The Service District Advisory Council, the fire department and county staff are engaged with us in a program to establish a new central fire station west of I-95;

The Civic Association is completing work on a major expansion of the R.V. storage compound - a place that allows the community to enforce rules against parking of vehicles in residential areas;

The Humane Society is pushing for expansion of its center;

The Chamber of Commerce has started work on its new headquarters building;

A group of citizens is involved in an intensive study of our local governments with a full public review planned...so we can mutually decide on what our government should be in the future

The Civic Association has joined in seeking tougher enforcement of the covenants and restriction that help to assure our high quality of life:

And the Civic Association is getting primed to initiate a community-wide cleanup effort so that the junkers, refuse dumpers and garden-variety litterbugs will, where possible, be prosecuted, and citizens will be enlisted to help clean up their own neighborhoods.

The lost could go on and on, for with every new project completion, another gets started.
I'd also like to take a look into the crystal ball for 19187 with these predictions:
1,300 new residents are expected to arrive;
FAA classes will begin in the fall;
Construction on the bridge will be well underway;
You'll be shopping and dining out at St. Joe Plaza, eating chicken from The Colonel, seeing Wal-mart nearing completion, stopping by two Lil' Champ stores, taking pets to a new vet clinic, visiting doctors, dentists and professionals at new office buildings on Old Kings Road;
Preliminary work on our fourth golf Course in Cypress Knoll will start;
Wadsworth Elementary School will open it doors this fall


There will be many others, but suffice to say Palm Coast is booming, and tomorrow looks to be even better than today."

The Palm Coaster, Spring 1987, pp. 14, 16.

The Designer Dedicates Matanzas

Arnold Palmer came to town Wednesday, November 12, and as usual attracted an army. He cracked the traditional club against the side of Matanzas Woods Golf Club's new clubhouse- just as he had done to dedicate Pine Lakes Country Club five years earlier. Then he teed off with 120 fellow golfers-among them local leaders, state legislators, business people and co-designer Ed Seay - in an invitational tourney. The day ended with a reception for members and golfers on the driving range, and then Arnie was off by helicopter, flying low over the crowd.
"Florida's next great golf course," in the words of Golfweek magazine, is now officially christened by the golf legend who designed it.


Pine Lakes New Members Lounge

Golfers are second only to fishermen in the telling of tall tales, and therin lies the logic behind "Fibber's," resident Jay Bell's wining entry in SunSport Recreation's 'Name the Pink Lakes Members Lounge" contest.
With the closing of The Harbour Restaurant for the Sheraton Hotel construction, Pine Lakes Country Club restaurant - newly remodeled and renamed "Champions" - opened its doors to the public last summer. Earlier this year Palm Coast Construction started work on a new member-only lounge and restaurant, due for completion this summer.
More than 400 contest entries poured in, ranging from the lofty and spiritual ' Treetops" and "Members' Monastery" - to the jazzy and political - "Boogie Bar' and "Bourgeois Lounge." But "Fibber's" came out on tope, and earned Pine Lakes charter member Jay Bell a $200 gift certificate.


Palm Coast's three golf courses, by the way, are looking good and playing even better. Matanzas Woods and Pine Lakes were the host courses for the $ 80,000 Palm Coast Classic, a Tournament Players Association tour event, on February 23 - March 1.

For the newer Palm Coasters:

COMMUNITIES

Palm Coast is a community of communities. And each, from the pine forests of Seminole Woods to the waterways of Palm Harbor, has distinct virtues making it a special place to live. Yet collectively, they fly under the same banner, and that's what sets them apart from the rest of Florida. They are all a part of Palm Coast, "one the finest planned communities in the United States." The Palm Coast lifestyle is what unites them. The Golf Courses, tennis clubs, swim clubs, marina and other Palm Coast Amenities make every homesite in every community a prime location. In fact, there is a wide variety of choice homesites still available throughout Palm Coast. In Pine Lakes, with its country club. In Belle Terre, where the swim and racquet club and Belle Terre Middle School are located. In Matanzas Woods, where the new Arnold Palmer-designed golf course will be completed in 1985. In Seminole Woods, within five miles of the high school and the cities of Flagler Beach and Bunnell. In fact, some of the best homesites in Palm Coast are still for sale. ITT Community Development Corporation makes the decision to purchase a homesite less difficult. There are financing choices to suit almost any budget. Talk to a Palm Coast land sales representative to find our more, at 10800-874-1828, in Florida, 904/445-3411, or at your nearest Palm Coast sales office. In the meantime, here's a quick look at the diverse communities that are Palm Coast:

Belle Terre site of the first Palm Coast Triathlon, the Belle Terre Swim and Racquet Club, with tennis courts, heated 50 meter pool, Nautilus room and Fitness Trail, is a focal point of this community west of I-95, where the modern Belle terre Middle School opened in 1982. Forested homesites compliment beautiful homes.
Cypress Knoll - The Site of Palm Coast's fourth golf course, to be completed in 1990. Cypress Knoll borders Highway 100 and Belle Terre Parkway. Near Flagler Palm Coast High School, homesites here offer convenient access to Flagler County's other major towns, Bunnell and Flagler Beach, and to the amenities of Pine Lakes and Belle Terre.
Grand Haven - Grand Haven is the community of The Woodlands neighborhood, home of Tennis Pro Tom Gullikson and family, and Woodhaven Condominiums. Its 3,500 acre conservation area borders the Old Kings Road entrance to Palm Coast east of I-95, one of the most beautiful travel routes in the community.
Indian Trails. One of Palm Coast's fastest growing communities, Indian Trails is north of St. Joe Road, west of I-95, The beautiful new Methodist Church is here, and Palm Coast's Comprehensive Land Use Plan ( CLUP) designates three school sites isn the community. Indian Trails' entrance is within two miles of the Palm Harbor Shopping Center, even closer to Pine Lakes Country Club.
Lehigh Woods - Just south of the Pine Lakes Community, Lehigh Woods homesites are within four miles of the country club, as well as Highway 100, the quickest route to Flagler's beautiful beaches.
Matanzas Woods - in 1985, Matanzas Woods will be home to Palm Coast's third golf course, one again a design of Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay, who worked their magic at Pine Lakes Country Club. Matanzas Woods is the Palm Coast community closest to the entertainment and atmosphere of the oldest city, St. Augustine, less than 25 miles north.
Palm Harbor - At the heart of Palm Coast Palm Harbor contains homesites bordered by 23 miles of salt water canals, and many of Palm Coast's community facilities, including the shopping center, marina, tennis club, Harbor Restaurant, Community Center, professional office park and Palm Harbor Golf Club, home course of LPGA star Nancy Lopez.
Pine Grove - To the south of the Belle Terre community, Pine Grove homesites offer the same advantages as those in Lehigh Woods- close proximity to the amenities of Pine Lake and Belle Terre and to Highway 100, Flagler County's main transportation artery that ends at the Atlantic Ocean.
Pine Lakes - Home to the elegant Pine Lakes Country Club and its Arnold Palmer-designed championship course, Pine Lakes also offers some of Palm Coast's most beautiful homes, including the popular villas and new models coming in 1984.
Quail Hollow - Site of the new Flagler Council on Again headquarters, Quail Hollow is a beautiful community south of Highway 100, where less than two miles east are the Flagler County Airport and Flagler Palm Coast High School. Bordering U.S. 1. Quail Hollow offers homesites that makes quick trips to Daytona Beach even quicker.
Seminole Woods - Also south of Highway 100 and due east of Quail Hollow, Seminole Woods is the Palm Coast community whose entrance is within four miles of the Atlantic Ocean. Thewooded homesites here, as in Quail Hollow, are close to Daytona Beach, yet less than ten miles from attractions of the Community they are a part of - Palm Coast.
Wherever you've purchases or decide to purchase in the future, you can rest easy knowing there's a beautiful piece of Palm Coast waiting for you.

And Palm Coast is Florida at her finest.

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

Huge News - Dr. Mery Gloria Gutierrez-Gables' Historic Heritage MARKER request for Palm Coast was '...APPROVED...' yesterday by the State of Florida Historic MARKER Specialists - State of Florida Historic Preservation Offices. It will take approx. 6-8 weeks for Sewah Studios, historic marker manufacturers, to set the type, pour the MARKER and deliver it to her.
Then there will be an official ' Digging In Ceremony '. Invited is the Ambassador to PERU who has accepted.
Tentatively she is planning an Event for her 'Digging In Ceremony'. She hope to plan this Event at the Palm Coast Golf Course Clubhouse since she is directly adjacent to it. She has approx. 100 persons she plans on inviting and tentatively Honorable Heidi Shipley will chair or host or whatever it is called this Event.
Peru has a neat online News Letter; hopefully there will be a Photo Op which we hope will be included in Peru's News Letter which is International.
Hopefully this exposure will help promo ' The Palm Coast Project ' in many ways.

LEVITT & ITT ' De Bary' Model

Levitt and International Telephone and Telegraph Corp. (I.T.T. ) developed 22,000 acres in Flagler County as part of the Palm Coast Project. Their goal was to construct the largest planned community in the nation, full of scenic drives, golf courses, and a marina. Levitt & I.T.T. engaged in an international marketing campaign on three continents to generate interest. As part of the "Levitt Showcase Golf Course Neighborhood," the ' De Bary' model was the showcase of the nine advertised Contemporary houses. Built in 1971, this house features a stucco exterior, wide gable front, and a central, gated courtyard. casper Drive, named in honor of golf legend William Casper, was the first street laid in the Palm Coast Project and was the only access road to the 18-hole
golf course. Every prospective buyer was offered an official guided tour
of the community's many amenities. The residents of Casper Drive played an important role
in the growth of Palm Coast, and occupants of the ' De BAry were just as involved. The house's first owners, Walter and Anna Kopecky, who purchased the house in 1972 actively worked to draw potential homeowners to the area.

Kathy and others - ' Thank You ' for your nice compliment; I'll pass that on to others in our Levitt Showcase Golf Course Neighborhood - Joe, Tony, Daphne, Donna, Ray, etc. Please don't laugh at our Levitt houses in Palm Coasts' first Neighborhood, we realize they are modest houses and not Grand Mansions - tho' to us...they are the finest Palaces in the World...Tony even says he will '...take to the mattresses...' to protect his Levitt house and Golf Course Tee Marker...

Palm Coasts' Easter Bunny Tree:
The Easter Bunny unexpectedly visited our Neighborhood last Night. He left an Easter Bunny Gram. The Easter Bunny said he heard that Palm Coasts' children and grand children were the best behaved in all of Florida. He said he heard they eat their vegetables, the keep their bedrooms clean, they brush their teeth regularly, and they don't fight with their brothers and sisters. This is why he secretly decorated Palm Coasts' Easter Bunny Easter Egg Tree for the children to see at 1 Casper Drive:

Please share this and pass it around so all the children and grandchildren in Palm Coast can see Palm Coasts' Easter Bunny Easter Egg Tree - ' Thank You '.
Wishing everyone a very Blessed and Happy Easter.

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

Garfield - ( for the newer Palm Coasters, Garfield is the Symbol / SpokesCat / Mascot for the ' Palm Coast Project '. He even lead our many Parades we had all last Century. Prospective buyers for Palm Coast were given a ' Garfield ' Telephone , I am steward of an original Garfield Telephone - see below).
For many months I have been communicating with ' Garfield '. I asked him if he would please prepare a text and disc about himself so that it could be forwarded to the Levitt Palm Coast Collection at ' The Smithsonian'.
Two days ago a Package from 'Garfield ' arrived at my house. Garfield send me a CC: of what he sent to ' The Smithsonian'. It is really neat. Some of it shows ' Garfields ' Bicycle Tour of Palm Coast.
Below is a very small example of what Garfield prepared and is in The Smithsonian'.

GarfieldLivetheGoodLifePoster.jpgPalmCoastGarfieldTelephone.jpg

Below is a 'Topiary' of Garfield that I'm trying to grow. Upon successful completion I hope to dress him up like above. This way the young children can see a nice thing.

I would share more about the Garfields' ' The Smithsonian ' but I would like it to be a surprise for all Palm Coasters to see a Power Point .

I asked yesterday Julie Murphy, Flagler County Staff Liason with the April 2017 ' Flagler Countys' 100th Anniversary ' if she / they would please add this to this 100th Anniversary Event along with Palm Coasts Historic Structures and Historic MARKERS.

Hopefully everyone will get to see the Garfield Power Point April 2017 and I hope you all will enjoy this.

Garfield Topiary - I keep feeding Garfield Miracle Gro.....and he keeps telling me he eats Lasagna...
When Garfield called me again last night ( he always reverses charges )...I told him that the Cafeteria at ' The Smithsonian ' has Lasagne.....He is really excited and is packing right now to go to the Cafeteria at ' The Smithsonian'. I told him he may have to return to his home in Palm Coast for the Flagler County 100th Anniversary this upcoming April 2017....I had to promise him he could eat Lasagne for Breakfast when he visits here in April 2017 to get him to come...

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

For the newer Palm Coasters - The Palm Coast Golf Club was the first Golf Course in Palm Coast which brought Championship Golf To Flagler County. When the Pine Lakes Golf Course opened the ' Palm Coast Golf Club ' became known as ' Palm Harbor Golf Club'. It was also the HOME Course for L.P.G.A. Nancy Lopez ( she lived in the Fairways Condominiums for many many years and played the Palm Harbor Golf Course all the time to enhance her Golf Skills ) .
NancyLopezKeepingUp1984.jpg

Nancy Lopezs' Book: ( the Palm Harbor Golf Course is within Nancy Lopez's book; I donated my copy to the Library at Palm Harbor Golf Course )
NancyLopezBookA.jpg

NancyLopezBookB.jpg

Below is part of one of the Historic Treasures which I am Steward of; I just had it mounted and framed by J&D Custom framing, 4982 Palm Coast Parakway Unit 4, Palm Coast. J& D Custom Framing do most of the framing for the Historic Items of Palm Coast. Below is a small part of what they framed for me:
PalmHarborGolfCourse.jpg

I just opened my safe looking for more stuff to send to ' The Smithsonian ' for the Levitt Palm Coast Collection held there at ' The Smithsonian '. Below is my *membership* card to ' The Palm Coast Golf Club ' - neat huh.
palmcoastgolfclub.jpg
Regularly I send a packet to ' The Smithsonian ' for their collection; I'll have to include this in the Historic Documents there.

Interesting aside - When Nancy Lopez was pregnant and showing and enhancing her Golf Skills at the Palm Harbor Golf Course, many women would put a pillow under their blouses pretending they were pregnant and to support our beloved Nancy Lopez while she was pregnant.

( These upcoming weeks I plan on going into my attic and retrieving our Golf Bags and Golf Bag carrier - to show you the first Golf Items used on the Palm Coast Golf Club / Palm Harbor Golf Club before ' The Palm Coast Project ' opened. Since my family and also I bought multiple parcels / house before the Palm Coast Project opened...we were one of the firsts to play the course. Early on they were referenced by Dr. J. Norman Young, father of Palm Coast, as ' The Four Sisters ' - which included the Palm Harbor Golf Course...later added and built..the Pine Lakes Golf Course...later added and built Amenity the Matanzas woods Golf Club..and later added the Cypress Knoll Golf Couse - all comprising ' The Four Sisters ' - neat huh !)

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

The Origins of our Emergency Services Building / Fire Station :
It is always perplexing why there is never mention made of things like this 'encumbering' Palm Coast Community Lands - my how time flies...for over a decade I have periodically sent these documents to the past city council. Over a decade of reminding them of the *encumberances*....
So...it is indeed very perplexing why Palm Coasters are never informed of this ?...
Anyway onto the origins of our first Emergency Services Building / Firehouse, as noted above...a MILESTONE for ' The Palm Coast Project'.FTCAgreementP2Otterbein.jpgFTCAgreementP3Otterbein.jpgFTCAgreementP1Otterbein.jpg

How fortunate for us that this has been recorded in the Official Records - County, State, and Federal...and we all know that the INTEGRITY of Official Records must be -
I hope you enjoy reading about the * encumberances* and Origins - our Heritage and History...
Thank you.

Hi !
Good Morning to you all !
A question - Will any of you pursue an Official Historic MARKER for our Emergency Services Building / Fire Station. If so, that would be great because it would compliment the Official State of Florida Historic Structures & Official State of Florida MARKER we already have and also those in the pipeline.
It would hopefully also help for Palm Coast to become eventually a Leadership City like so many of our neighbors and other Florida Cities already are. For decades all last century Palm Coast was regarded well. Hopefully Palm Coast will achieve that status this Century. That would be very nice.





Also, we are now in ' The Smithsonian ' - isn't that Great !

Neat - this below is also in ' The Smithsonian ' !



Some documentation you will need should you pursue making Palm Coast great again like last Century with a Historic MARKER:
















Should you pursue this High Honor and need additional information please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
Any possibility in removing all the ' No Trespassing ' Signs denying Palm Coasters the enjoyment of the ' Heidi Recreation ' Acreage with Featurues that I not only paid for but also within the 'Consumer REDRESS ' Federally ORDERED for me / us/ Palm Coast - more specifically the Marina Complex/ Palm Coast Resort and stated above ? I really miss that Amenity & REDRESS alot !
Perhaps you can also convince the school board in doing this also RE: The Belle Terre Swim and Racquet Club as atated above. I've asked; sadly no luck - perhaps they are myopic and provencial or busy or some such and do not understand the importance of this for them too !
Thanks.
Regards,
Geo.

Historic Treasures for Levitt & I.T.T. ' s ' The Palm Coast Project ' as rare as hens' teeth.

A short while ago I was driving down a street and something *caught* my eye.

I thought I was in Dreamland ...

I went down the street and turned around the Cul-de-sac to get a better view.

I stopped in front of the house to get a better look.

Sure enough..what I had been looking for for many years was there !

I went to the front door and knocked. No One home.

Later I went back...no one home.

I kept doing this until someone answered the door.

I asked about what I was looking for for many year.

I asked...Is it For Sale ?

Guy says...' Yes '. I asked ' How Much ' ?...( I was prepared to offer up to $ 1,000.00 but he didn't know that )

He says...' ...Make an Offer ...'

I thought I would start the bidding at ' A Franklin ' and see what happens since I had a lot of leeway.

He says ' SOLD '.

I was completely overjoyed. What I had been looking for for many years was coming to fruition !

....then he said something that shocked me...

He says...' I have two more in my Garage '.

Before he gets the words out of his mouth I say....I'll buy them also...

I think I shocked him....but boy was I very very happy.

I really could not believe it....I pinched myself...I wrote out a check real fast - the fasted check I ever wrote !

Now I had ' Three '.

I gave one to Joe on Cooper Lane; I gave another to Tony on Cooper Lane also.

When I gave it to Tony he said he will '...take to the mattresses...' if anyone even touches his. ' ...take to the mattresses...' and he means it..

Joe and Tony came to my house within minutes...each *whoosed* their away. Within an hour...Joe and Tony both had theirs in place...both even ' lighted ' .

I have mine in my front yard awaiting placement of this ' Historic Treasure '. ....as rare as hens' teeth.

If you / your family is driving around....come see these Palm Coast Historic Treasures.

We are rapidly becoming Palm Coasts' ' living Museum '.

I go outside all the time to look at mine . I tell people I love it more than I loved my wife !.

Come look ! We hope you enjoy this and it gives a ' sense of place ' - ' a sense of History ' for the newer Palm Coasters.

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

We realize it isn't much, but, at least we saved three of these Historic Treasures.

Our Levitt & I.T.T. Showcase Golf Course Neighborhood also has I think 5 ' Palm Coast Golf Club ' Golf Course Tee Markers that we were also able to save. They are salt and peppered throughout our Levitt & I.T.T. Neighborhood so these additional 3 Matanzas Woods Golf Club Historic Tee MARKERS help compliment Palm Coasts very rich Heritage and History.

Come look at all of our Tee Markers - getting ever closer to becoming a living Museum for ' The Palm Coast Project '.
