They say change is constant, but there are certainly times when you feel it more than others. Time passes at the same speed overnight, for example, but reaches a crescendo at sunrise. The pop of a seedling emerging from the soil arrives after weeks of slumber as a humble pip. We’ve all been through a moment, so to speak, and invite our artist members to share what’s changed, even if it was always there.

It's time to renew your Residential Parking Permit for Old Town. The stickers will help ensure marked residential parking spaces are reserved for residents.
If you already have last years permit, you can renew it easily online at HTTPS://CITYOFKEYWESTPERMITS.RMCPAY.COM or stop by the rear entrance City Hall 1300 White Street Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
After October 31st last year's pink conch shell permits will no longer be valid for parking in the spaced marked "Residential" in the historic neighborhoods, nor will they grant the 4-hour free parking credit (one time per day) in select City lots.
This year's Residential Parking Permit is proud to display the Southernmost Buoy and will be mailed to your address on file if you apply or renew online.
The permits cost $39.13 for a full year of parking. If you did not purchase one last years, you will need to apply. You can apply in-person or online. Applicants will need to upload proof of residency, a valid driver's license, and vehicle registration to qualify for a residential permit.
In addition to ensuring that residents can park in the marked residential spaces, the permit allows for parking for up to four hours, one time per day, without paying in any one of the five parking lots:
* Fire Station #2 in the 600 block of Simonton - Zone 33054
* Key West Bight main lot in the 800 block of Caroline - Zone 33046
* Park N Ride garage in the 300 block of Grinnell - Zone 33048
* Truman Waterfront Park (except during events) -Zone 33051
* Smathers Beach on-street parking on South Roosevelt Blvd - Zone 33053
* Jackson Square behind the county courthouse, nights and weekends only - Zone 33049
The City of Key West wants to remind residents of the best way to dispose of your Christmas tree. Please do not put real trees in plastic trash bags. Instead, put them out beside you trash bin on collection day. Please don’t throw them in the right-of-way.
In addition, please be sure to remove all decorations and tinsel. This way, Waste Management can process the trees like yard waste and send them to a mulch and compost center.
As a result of constant striving to make city streets safer for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists, The City of Key West has reached an important milestone.
The League of American Bicyclists has awarded the City the Bronze status as a Bicycle Friendly Community.
The League scores a community based upon what they call the 5Es: engineering, education, encouragement, evaluation and planning, and equity and accessibility.
HISTORIC KEY WEST CEMETERY STROLL, JANUARY 8, 2023
The first Cemetery Stroll to be offered at the Historic Key West Cemetery this season will take place on Sunday January 8th, 2023.

MUSICIAN HOUSE HOSTS NEEDED FOR JANUARY 26-29
Over the years, South Florida Symphony Orchestra has worked closely with the Florida Keys Council of the Arts and Monroe County Public School District to bring music to the children.
Our 25th Season is underway, and we're gearing up for the return of our Symphony in the Schools program “Preserving Our Coral Reefs,” provided free to participating Monroe County Public Schools. The concert coincides with our season-opening concert in Key West on January 28, 2023. For us to bring this important program to the children of the Florida Keys, we need to line up musician housing from January 26-29. Several patrons have indicated an interest in hosting, so we are following up on your availability to host our artists in your home while they are in the Keys for the children’s program.
To be successful, we need 43 beds to accommodate 43 musicians to provide service to 2,000 first, second and third graders at the January 26 children's concert at Coral Shores and the January 27 children's concert at Key West High School.
• Musician Key West Arrival: January 26, 2023
• Musician Key West Departure: January 29, 2023
If you can host, please provide your name, hosting address, and size of bed (single, double or king-size bed/s). During their stay, we are requesting private bedrooms and bathrooms for their use. Are there any restrictions or preferences (i.e., male or female, etc.)? Musicians are responsible for their own transportation and meals. Please indicate if the musicians will have kitchen privileges.
If you are unable to host a musician in your home, we would be grateful if you could sponsor a musician's stay in our partner hotel for $275 for the concert.
If you wish to underwrite a musician's hotel stay or donate to the concert, please contact Jacqueline Lorber at firstname.lastname@example.org or 954.522.8445. If you agree to host a musician, we will be happy to provide you with two complimentary tickets to the January 28th concert at Tennessee Williams Theatre in exchange for your hospitality.
In closing, we’d like to thank the house hosts who have already committed to assisting us with our housing needs.

MORE ABOUT "PRESERVING OUR CORAL REEFS": The concert “Preserving Our Coral Reefs” highlights the plight of the world's coral reefs, including Florida’s own 300-mile-long reef, and the efforts to save it. Through science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics (STEAM), students will learn of individuals such as Dr. David Vaughan, whose pioneering discovery of coral microfragmentation has sped up the reproduction of more resilient corals that can be transplanted onto a reef, thus leading to its survival!
