Jupiter Inlet Village focus groups meet
The Town of Jupiter is collecting information and opinions to aid in the formation of the Jupiter Inlet Village land development regulations.
Focus groups have been created to give the residents a voice.
On Nov. 29, residents within the Inlet Village met, while on Dec. 1, residents of the Town of Jupiter who live outside of the Inlet Village area are meeting. There are two remaining focus groups.
Property owners in the Inlet Village will meet on Dec. 6, and businesses in the Inlet Village will meet Dec. 13, both meeting from 6 to 8 p.m.
No town officials will attend the meetings to enable participants to feel more comfortable when voicing an opinion. The meetings will be held at the Jupiter Community Center, located at 200 Military Trail, in Jupiter.
For more information, contact Kate Moretto at 561-741-2575.

TOYS FOR TOTS
Fill the toy drop box near you
Every year since 1947, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program has been collecting toys for underprivileged children.
Once again this holiday season, the Marines are asking for the generosity of those in the community to help complete their mission.
There are a large number of locations around town that contain a toy drop box.
Planners of many events in the area also ask participants to bring a new, unwrapped toy to their venue.
“I know there is a drop box at Jupiter Community Center, that’s where I always go,” said Blake Brownstone, of Jupiter.
Your generosity will bring many smiles to children who would otherwise go without.
The Toys for Tot’s website is www.toysfortots.org.
