Stuart Air Show returning for Veteran’s Day weekend
STUART — Even amid loss, hurts and hardships, people across our community have remained determined, hopeful and optimistic.

And now they have even more reasons to look up — literally.

The Stuart Air Show is returning to the skies November 7 and 8. Celebrating its delayed 30th anniversary, the beloved regional event — sidelined last year by heavy flooding, which proceeded the tragic pre-show crash of a performer — will highlight performances from more elite military fighter jets than ever before.

Not all the action will take place exclusively in the air. The event will debut a... Read more >>

CareerSource Research Coast launches new workforce programs
PORT ST. LUCIE  – CareerSource Research Coast (CSRC) today announced the launch of new workforce training and development programs to support St. Lucie County residents and businesses economically impacted by COVID-19.

Designed to prepare individuals with re-entering the workforce while also helping affected businesses avoid layoffs and/or upskill employees, Recover St. Lucie Workforce Training and Development programs are supported in partnership by CSRC, St. Lucie County, and the Economic Development Council of St. Lucie County (EDC) as part of the St. Lucie County CARES Economic Recovery programs. Funding for these programs were made possible by the St. Lucie County Board of County Commissioners, which has received federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds from the State of Florida.

Under this initiative, eligible St. Lucie County residents transitioning from industries hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic may receive up to $5 thousand in scholarship grant funds for immediate, short-term training or certification for in-demand occupations. The industries hardest hit include but are not limited to hospitality, entertainment, food and beverage, and personal services. CSRC will also assist program participants with job placement.

CSRC will also provide eligible St. Lucie County for-profit businesses with up to $10 thousand in grant funding for paid on-the-job training (OJT) programs to train or upskill new hires to meet new market demands. Program participants must have lost their job or had their hours reduced due to COVID-19. Businesses must be in recovery mode and open and operational in some fashion consistent with the governor’s guidelines, CDC guidance and market realities. CSRC will award grants on a tiered scale based on the total number of full-time participating employees.

Visit the CareerSource Research Coast website for eligibility requirements and additional information. For program funding details in compliance with the Stevens Amendment, please visit www.careersourcerc.com/program-funding.

PulteGroup acquires two local development sites
MARTIN COUNTY/PALM BEACH GARDENS — PulteGroup announced it has closed on two separate development sites in Martin County.
 
On Sept. 1, Pulte acquired a 13-acre parcel in Stuart. After working with residents and city leaders, the award-winning national builder finalized a plan to develop 80 affordably priced townhomes under the Pulte Homes brand. Prices at Ocean Cove will start from the low $300s.
 
The community is located just minutes from downtown Stuart, which is known for its quaint, coastal atmosphere and has earned the prestigious “America’s Happiest Seaside Town” award by Coastal Magazine and named “#3 Must Visit Small Town” by Smithsonian Magazine. Ocean Cove is within walking distance of the Fresh Market and several local restaurants and is one block away from the Evans Crary Bridge which provides easy access to Seawall’s Point and Hutchinson Island.
 
PulteGroup also acquired 215 acres in southern Martin County adjacent to the Palm Beach County line for a new high-end single-family home community called Bridgewater, which will be developed under the builder’s luxury-home brand, DiVosta. In total, this community with a Jupiter, Florida address will consist of 107 estate homes, ranging from 1 to 5 acres in size.
 
Divosta will offer new floorplans that will be released for sale in early 2021. In addition, Divosta will have a custom-lot sale program for buyers who want to purchase a lot and build custom homes with local builders.  Homes will transact in the $1 million-plus range.
 
Bridgewater is located off Island Way, which runs north of Indiantown Road near the Village of Tequesta.  
 
Pulte Homes and DiVosta will soon start taking reservations for their respective communities.
 
In Southeast Florida, PulteGroup builds under the Pulte Homes, Pulte Active Adult, DiVosta and Del Webb brands. Homes are actively being sold in three new communities in Broward County, four in Palm Beach County, and four in the Treasure Coast area, with several others under land development across the region. Home prices range from the mid $200s to over $1 million.
