Blair Foundation Tree Challenge Begins!
Help Plant Trees in the Moorings!
Moorings residents have a wonderful and unique opportunity to repopulate our neighborhood with trees following last year's hurricane Irma thanks to the Blair Foundation. Concerned with the amount of damage Hurricane Irma inflicted upon the City's stately trees, the Blair Foundation's trustees donated $500,000 as a match for community (individuals or organizations) donations dedicated to planting trees in the city.

The MPOA has seized on this opportunity to plant trees in The Moorings, specifically. The MPOA will match dollars donated by residents and earmarked for The Moorings dollar-for-dollar up to $20,000. These dollars will in turn be matched by the Blair Foundation, therefore quadrupling the impact of every resident dollar donated. Money raised beyond the stated MPOA match will still be doubled by the Blair Foundation up to their $500,000 match.

You may obtain a Moorings-specific Blair Foundation Tree Challenge donation form below or at the Moorings Beach Park. Important note: Make your check payable to the City of Naples (for eligible tax-deduction), put THE MOORINGS in the memo line, and either drop it off at the Beach Park or mail it to MPOA, P.O. Box 8961, Naples FL 34101 to ensure that the dollars are eligible for maximum match potential and are earmarked for trees in The Moorings.

Beach Park Mobility Ramp Project Announced!

For many years, our members have suggested that we consider building a ramp so that those who are mobility-challenged could more easily take in views of the beach and shoreline. We have consulted with experts and considered design and material alternatives to fulfill this need and we are pleased to announce that the project is moving forward!

This project is incremental to our usual operating budget and so we are launching a campaign to help pay for the expenses associated with this important initiative. The total estimated cost is $60,000. There will be no assessment to our members at this time, rather we are asking that people who are motivated to support this project donate to the MPOA with  "MPOA Mobility Challenge" written in the memo line and drop a check in the mail or at the beach park. We thank you in advance for your interest and generosity.  If any member wishes to underwrite all or a very substantial portion of the cost, we would consider giving naming writes to the shelter.  Thank you in advance for your interest!
The 2018 MPOA Annual Meeting
Enjoyable and Informative!

The MPOA had a terrific turnout for our annual meeting of the membership! Special thanks to Bill Moss, Naples City Manager for speaking to the crowd about current city projects and an 'inside' retrospective of Hurricane Irma. We also extend thanks to Doug Stewart for organizing this and other annual social events, and to Linda Black, MPOA President, for her leadership and hard work all year.
The Moorings Country Club provided an elegant backdrop and a delicious buffet dinner for all to enjoy. Thank you to our membership for your interest and support of the MPOA.  Have a terrific summer!
