Startup for new neighborhood group in Boca

Do you live west of I-95 but still in Boca city limits?

The Coalition of Mid Boca Residential Associations is looking for HOA and condo delegates and already had two meetings.

“The new group will represent all homes in communities like The Colonnade, Santa Barbara and Fairfield,” said Jerry Ruderman, who’s forming the group.

Ruderman stepped aside as longtime president of Via Verde Master Association. They were successful objecting to late night noise at the former Blue Martini and other issues.

And as Via Verde’s vice president, Ruderman intends to keep going to monthly meetings of The Federation of Boca Raton Homeowner Associations.

But no organized group was addressing development in midtown and the old Sears building at Town Center at Boca Raton mall, he said. Seritage developers already spoke to the new group.

“We propose to deal with cutting down nighttime flight hours,” at Boca Raton Airport, he said. “We want to address traffic in midtown and schools.”

Verde Elementary is being demolished and rebuilt on the same campus as a K-8.

“We don’t aim to compete with Federation, but our interests are under-represented,” Ruderman said. “We want to be more of a lobbying and action group.”

He’s looking for a steering committee and delegates, similar to coalitions like the Federation and Coalition of Boynton West Residential Associations.

The next meeting is 8:30 a.m. June 25 in St. Andrews Estates South, part of Via Verde. Ruderman can be reached at
