Hurricane Evacuation Model. Very quietly, without much notice, without Zoom links for those of us away from the Keys next week, the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) is holding public meetings to “provide information regarding hurricane evacuation modeling in the Florida Keys and to seek public input.” The evacuation model is used to determine whether new residential building permits (ROGOs) can be issued.
Ousted. The City Commission voted 6-1 to oust its Planning Board appointee Gregory Lloyd as a result of his letter to the editor calling out FKAAs infrastructure failings and critical of FKAA's leadership. Mayor Teri Johnston was the lone vote in support of Lloyd. (Keys Weekly)
Pride. Four local drag performers encouraged the City Commission to approve a resolution affirming Key West as a “welcoming city” for all. The resolution passed unanimously. (Keys Weekly)

Creative people. Leslie Linsley wrote that creativity is Key West’s greatest asset. (Citizen, $)

Extraordinary birder. Mark Hedden lauded Christian Cooper, who was famous in the birding world before he became famous nationwide for being the subject of an entirely false and racist police report.
