Ocean Park

As they have for over three decades, The Shores Residents Association is sponsoring a City Council Candidate Forum. It will be Monday, Oct. 17, from 7-8:30 p.m. As always, the Forum is open to the public and will be held in the north building Meeting Room on the lobby level. The Shores is a 532-unit high rise apartment complex in Ocean Park, consists of two twin towers. The North Tower is located at 2700 Neilson Way. The Forum will be moderated by Robin Sherry, a long time Shores resident and community activist.

The history of Shores Forums dates back to the early 1980’s. TSRA actually came into existence in 1980 as a response to a proposed 5-story parking lot for Main Street. The late Herb Sandel, organized resident opposition to the structure, which was defeated in no small part by the grass root efforts of TSRA, along with other neighborhood groups.

Kathryn Ford, president of TSRA, cordially invites the public to attend and notes that there will be time set aside during the Forum for questions of the candidates from audience members.   While there’s plenty of parking available in the lot adjacent to the Shores, she notes people are advised to get there promptly as seating is limited.
