The city of Boca Raton and the state Boca Raton Airport Authority each has a new website. The timing may be similar, but they’re completely separate projects. Myboca.us went live Feb. 1 with the official launch Feb. 6. Feedback has been constant and the site has given residents another way to apply for permits and register a concern through Request Tracker. “We asked each department what they were hearing the most. Was it, ‘my garbage didn’t get picked up’ or ‘there are cars on my neighbor’s yard,'” said Chrissy Gibson, the city’s communications and marketing manager. “People can report concerns anonymously, or if they want to sign in and create an account they can view [the status] of their report and we respond to them. “They can upload pictures and we were sent photos of graffiti in Sanborn Square,” she added about the downtown park on Federal Highway. Boca Raton Airport Authority’s new site went live Feb. 14 at www.bocaairport.com. “The navigation was improved by taking website visitors directly to the information pertinent to them, whether it’s pilot travelers or just doing business with the airport,” said Michael Schneider, senior account manager and digital strategist at Green Integrated Marketing Services in Boca Raton.

If you live in Boca Raton, you probably know when President Donald Trump is headed to Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach or back to the White House in Washington, D.C. Restrictions over a 10- and 30-mile radius of airspace means flight paths change and private aircraft divert to Boca Raton Airport to get out of the way. “This past weekend, we did see a significant increase in jet activity into Boca Raton, most likely from pilots and passengers who did not want to deal with potential delays at Palm Beach International Airport during the Temporary Flight Restrictions,” Boca airport executive director Clara Bennett said after the presidential trip Feb. 10 to 12.
