It’s Peter Gary, publisher of the Boca Voice. Welcome to the March edition of our monthly newsletter.

I’m sure your calendar is as packed as ours as we march through March. Six weeks to go to the end of high season, even though Boca is fast becoming 24/7 and the best place to raise a family.

What other town our size do you know that’s building a new school, the first of three? Verde Elementary will be reborn as a pre-K through eighth grade. Then it’s Addison Mizner’s turn for a teardown and rebuild. And don’t forget Boca will get a new grade school, too.

What other town our size do you know that just opened a new 14-acre park on 18thStreet? Hillsboro El Rio Park South has pickleball courts, exercise trails, all-accessible playgrounds and even a kayak launch. Longtime residents will remember when the site was still a landfill.

Of course, the biggest news this month is political, with the presidential preference primary on March 17. Some mail-in ballots  already went out. But registered Democrats or Republicans can still request them through March 7.

That’s also the start date for early voting through March 15. Make sure you check the 16 early voting sites. They’re not the same as your precinct, which may have changed. Check what you need to bring, too. Click here for the link to the website.

Boca is one of 20 municipalities that piggyback their local elections. If you don’t find mayoral candidates, incumbent Mayor Scott Singer or Bernard Korn on your ballot, it means you don’t live in city limits.

Finally, if you’re a beachgoer or live, walk or bike on A1A, the Army Corps of Engineers will start work on north beach re-nourishment in early March. The project is north of Spanish River Boulevard for 1.4 miles to south of Red Reef Park. It’s expected to wrap up by April 30.

Enjoy this month, springtime in Boca. What could be better.
