Bimini Ferry Service Discontinued

The Superfast Ferry, that has been running from Miami to Resorts World on north Bimini since 2013, is no longer in operation. After huge expense to build a 1,000 foot pier in the ocean, with great damage to the environment, the ferry service has shut down.

Cape Air is filling the gap with five flights daily to Bimini.

Another overly ambitious development plan gone awry!

Staniel Cay Airport reopens

THANK YOU!  Together, we did it!  Our collective voice (and your many signatures!) encouraged action, and we are thrilled to report the re-opening of the Staniel Cay airport as of yesterday!  The official notice can be seen at http://www.thebahamasweekly.com/publish/bis-news-updates/Staniel_Cay_Airport_Re-Opened_to_Air_Traffic45182.shtml

Once again, thank you so very much for your support and collective efforts.  We look forward to welcoming you back to Staniel – as you land on our new and improved home airstrip!

Staniel Cay Airport Update

Dear Staniel Cay Supporter:

THANK YOU!!!  Concerned Citizens of Staniel Cay & Vicinity garnered more than 5,200 online signatures to our petition letter, urging immediate government repair of our airstrip. (http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/staniel-airport)

We extend our sincere thanks to each and every one of you who signed the petition, forwarded the information, posted on social media, networked with your own contacts and otherwise added your efforts to this important cause.

 Most of you have followed news accounts in The Nassau Guardian and The Tribune and are aware that good news is at hand.  (See, e.g., http://www.thenassauguardian.com/bahamas-business/40-bahamas-business/58870-staniel-cay-contract-signed-18m-to-bahamas-hot-mix and

http://www.tribune242.com/news/2015/sep/02/davis-airstrip-repairs-take-12-weeks-not-12-months/).

We are pleased to confirm this as well.  The contractor is on-site with a host of workers and vehicles, and repair work is well underway.  We will remain vigilant until work is finally completed and the airport is actually reopened.  That will be cause for great celebration!

Until then, we cannot thank you enough for adding your voice to Concerned Citizens and helping us be heard at long last.

In sincere appreciation,

Brooks Miller & Stephen Miller on behalf of Concerned Citizens of Staniel Cay & Vicinity

Staniel Cay (Exumas) Airport

Dear Staniel Cay Supporter:

You can take action to help!  On August 12, we delivered a petition letter to the Prime Minister of the Bahamas and other key officials, urging the Government to repair and reopen the Staniel Cay airport immediately.  The hard copy petition is signed by 164 people – nearly all Staniel Cay residents (locals and foreign homeowners alike), business owners and every private island between here and the Exuma Park headquarters.

Of course, many more people and entities are affected by the airport closure as well.  We now seek widespread signatures from the many other supporters of Staniel Cay:  extended families of Staniel Cay locals; families and guests of homeowners; families and clients of business owners; private cay owners/operators/families/staff/guests; boaters and cruisers; SCYC and rental home guests; private pilots; charter companies; pilot organizations; fly-in tour groups; suppliers; tourism agencies; and any other person or entity who experiences the negative impact of the Staniel Cay airport closure and urges its immediate repair/reopening.  We have established an online petition to reach as many affected persons as possible.

Please go to http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/staniel-airport to read the August 12th letter from Concerned Citizens of Staniel Cay & Vicinity and SIGN YOUR NAME IN SUPPORTPlease sign as soon as possible so we can cite a strong number of online signatures.  (If you are seeing this belatedly, we still welcome your signature as we will continue to cite growing numbers in ongoing efforts with officials.)  Please continue to visit the site for updates and any further calls to action.

PLEASE FORWARD this information to your own contacts and networks of Staniel Cay-related persons/businesses to encourage their online signatures as well.  We sincerely apologize for duplicate emails you may receive as word of this important initiative spreads.

Huge thanks to all signers!  To all of you who love Staniel Cay, thank you for your continued support of this special Cay, and let’s get our airport up and running again!

Thank you!

Dawn Spivey & Brooks Miller
