SUZIE PRICE – STATE OF THE CITY
Our special guest speaker at November’s General Meeting was Third District City Councilwoman and
friend of NIGC, Suzie Price. Some items discussed were the Redistricting process, Bayshore Library
Refresh project, and Second Street Parklets. As Chair of City of Long Beach Port, Transportation, and
Infrastructure Committee, Suzie said planning is underway to utilize any infrastructure monies coming
from the federal infrastructure bill. She explained that the paving of Studebaker Road is on top of her
list, and that additional funds are needed. Suzie fielded several Members’ questions and concerns such
as vehicles and bicycles ignoring stop signs, and poor behavior of Duffy boat renters.
We thanked Suzie Price and her assistant, Gabriela Yates Joy for their continued support of Naples
Islands Garden Club, and for their presence at our signature Veterans Day event and other activities
each year. Thank you to all Members who attended the November Meeting and to those who submitted
questions for Suzie.
