A Note From Your Editor, Cassandra Leonard
March is a Month filled with Good Luck! May it be so.
We would love to highlight life in Keystone/Odessa much more. Please share your adorable animal - fam pictures or a great story about where you live! It is our goal to share more about our community and resident businesses.
It's the Big Meeting this Month! For that matter, we wish more members would step in and join the BOD to support the mission of KCA to bring our community "together". If you love where you live and cherish it, this is a Mission to support so we can be most instrumental to build our strength where help is needed! It takes a village to overcome the mountains we've been climbing since our election in 2022. Many arrows have been hitting our Keystone area community in all directions, including us. Good news is we have laid down great new seeds to grow a lush green pasture!
If we want to WIN against development it truly takes everyone living in our community to step in, help, and work together respectfully. Agree to disagree in the utmost respectful way, but keep in mind our common GOALS. We have a great group of resident members who have taken the lead to fight for what we believe in to protect our Keystone Odessa Community Plan. They deserve a Thank You and credit for the volunteer hours etc. they have put in for this big battle to continue enforcing the message to Protect the Keystone Community. We support the mission to "Protect our Keystone 36" i.e the Keystone Odessa Community Plan, but in same sense have been tasked and elected to protect the KCA, its historical stance, existence, and its members. Decisions the BOD makes are driven by you the members! Your input is integral. The continued donations are much appreciated to support and build the KCA funds in order to continue the community missions in our VOLUNTARY capacity. Reminder, this is all "voluntary", no one gets paid for the hours and days of sweat equity this "small" but mighty BOD and committees work for the betterment of all. Having your support is most appreciated. We donate daily to KCA with incoming inquiries, support, and planning. The more hands on deck the better off we will be. In this tenure much was learned and resolved, we are on a positive path forward. I have a personal request, as a life-long resident (55 yrs) who loves our community, members please Join the BOD or Chair / work on a committee. Get INVOLVED if you want action! Be part of the solution, not the problem. If you do not wish to be on the BOD, there is no job too small for the MANY tasks we are overwhelmed to handle, volunteers appreciated. This is a very small group "to keep wheels moving forward on the bus" that have very busy lives too! We are "Keystone-Odessa" a strong force to reckon with UNITED by we the people. This is for your family's future, or say good bye to a peaceful rural, agricultural, farming, lake life. Don't forget to please share pictures of the area, recipes, hot news and interview availability, hot topics, Email to: KeystoneCivicSect@gmail.com. We can use help in the communication department for news articles, posts, social media, website back up etc. If you are that person, PLEASE contact me.
As a community bound together we are a strong force; protecting our Keystone 36 ! "United we are Strong, Divided we are Weak. Together we can accomplish ANYTHING. " Team work makes the dream work!

Oppose Senate Bill 540, the companion bill to HB 359
Send letters to Senators this bill would have detrimental impacts to ALL Comprehensive Plans in the State
Sample Letter to send via Email with list is below:
Letter Sample: Dear Senator(s), As you are an elected representative for we the people, to assure our best interest on decisions made that will impact not only our sanctuaries, but that of our environment, water sheds, nature/animals habitats, etc. for generations to come, we request your position be as noted herein. You may want to oppose Senate Bill 540, the companion bill to HB 359. This bill will have a significant negative impact on citizens of Florida whose only wish is to prevent uncontrolled development in communities within Comprehensive Plans and Community Plans. The bill stipulates that anyone who loses a legal challenge to a comprehensive plan — or comprehensive plan amendment — must pay the winner’s attorney fees and costs. You can understand why that proposal might dissuade citizens filing such a challenge. And that, of course, is exactly what Florida’s developers want. This bill seeks to strip power from citizens and undermine the spirit of Florida’s comprehensive planning laws. If passed it represents a victory for sprawl over judicious planning — and common sense by punishing citizens who dare question it. Please review this carefully and consider the negative impact it will have on growth management and the future of Florida. This bill is scheduled to come before the Committee on Community Affairs on March 22, 2023. Please Oppose this unnecessary change to current Florida Statutes 163.3177, 163.3184, 163.3187 and 163.3215. Please re-establish the bipartisan consensus for a common-sense state role in growth management. SB 540: Local Government Comprehensive Plans GENERAL BILL by DiCeglie Local Government Comprehensive Plans; Authorizing certain administrative modifications to capital improvement schedules; providing that the prevailing party in a challenge to a plan or plan amendment is entitled to recover attorney fees and costs; awarding attorney fees and costs, including reasonable appellate attorney fees and costs, to the prevailing party in a challenge to the compliance of a small scale development amendment, etc.
Thank you for your consideration and respect of our request.

Keystone Odessa Community Plan Commercial Use Defined
(taken directly from our KOCP Plan Read below)
by KCA President, Mike Atherton
The Keystone-Odessa community desires to have uses that are geared to serving the daily needs of area residents, in a scale and design that complements the character of the community. Currently there are approximately 267,000 square feet of commercial development approved and not built within the community planning area. It is the desire of the community to encourage transfer of development rights for some of the currently approved unbuilt commercial within the community planning area and to direct new commercial to the intersection of Gunn Highway and North Mobley Road with the community plan boundary, and to other eligible receiving areas in Hillsborough County.
The intersection at Gunn Highway and North Mobley Road is recognized as a rural activity center by the community, and designed to serve the majority of the community’s daily shopping needs such as groceries, post office, animal supplies, etc. To ensure that the area is developed in compliance with the Keystone-Odessa Community Plan this area has been defined as an overlay district within the County’s land development code.
The overlay district incorporates specific design guidelines that include:
• staggered building orientations, with interruptions in roof lines and structures;
• public courtyards or open space(s) with shade trees;
• architectural features to emphasize the location of the center;
• connected structures with covered walkways made of pavers, brick or boardwalks;
• residential style pitched roof lines;
• external facades made of wood siding, brick or vinyl material;
• preserved natural areas to act as buffers along perimeters;
irregular vehicular circulation and parking patterns to accommodate existing trees;
• signage in scale and related to architectural character of the center (externally illuminated monument signs not pole signs);
• drought tolerant tree and vegetation plantings for shade, screening and buffers along roadways; and,
• nighttime lighting that mimics gaslights or kerosene lights.
The Gunn Highway and North Mobley Road rural activity center area (overlay district) is generally shown on the illustrated plan (of the Keystone-Odessa background documentation).
The desired rural commercial character for the Keystone-Odessa community includes uses which:
• are small in scale; (both in square footage for individual structures and in the FAR);
• are specifically geared to serve the agricultural and equestrian interests in the area;
• are designed using an architectural style which reflects a rural vernacular with metal or wood shake roofs; and,
• have exterior walls constructed of natural materials (vs. a “franchise architecture” appearance).
The Keystone-Odessa community recognizes that its attractive natural amenities, and active equestrian accommodations and related activities are unique characteristics that attract tourists. Regulations adopted in the County’s land development code will ensure the continuation and expansion of uses that support the equestrian and agricultural activities for their tourist value. These land development regulations will support the creation of uses such as bed and breakfasts, dude ranches, riding stables, horse track support facilities, and equestrian facilities (in scale and designed to be compatible with the community).

We need everyone in our community to email
to oppose RZ 22-1431: Rezone to CN.
Send your emails to: Hearings@HillsboroughCounty.org
In the subject line, write: Attn: Zoning Hearing Master regarding RZ 22-1431
Here is a list of reasons to oppose this proposed zoning change from RSC-2 (Residential, Single-Family Conventional)
to CN (Commercial Neighborhood)
First, there is NO need or desire for a commercial venture at the corner of Racetrack Rd and Gunn Hwy. We do not need more decimation of our wetlands, woods and lakes. This proposed rezoning goes against our Keystone Community vision of a rural community that values nature above commercialism.
It is NOT compatible with the neighboring properties which are zoned residential or agriculture.
Flue- Future Land Use category is R-1 (single-family residential properties) This proposed zoning does not preserve the area’s environmental features and community character nor does it improve the quality of life for the community.
The Traffic Study on this application was done in 2017. This antiquated traffic study of 6 years does not reflect the increased traffic on Gunn Hwy due to the immense growth of Starkey Ranch and Citrus Park areas that have made Gunn Hwy congested.
This property is located in a wellhead protection area.
Sec. 3.05.05 - Potable Water Wellfield Protection Measures
County utilities (water) are requested. This goes against the Keystone Community Plan and Hillsborough County’s own comp plan regarding no county utilities in the rural service area.
A 7-11 was proposed in this area in 1999 (see attached article) BOTH the Planning Commission and county zoning staff opposed this project.
Please send your emails to oppose this rezoning! Your emails must be sent 4-5 days prior to the hearing date to ensure they are entered in the county system.
Land Use: RV Park on Lutz Lake Fern Road Join our weekly planning meetings
By Clara Lawhead, Land Use Committee Co Chair

WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH
by Krys Wloch, Chair KCA ERC Committee
Women's History Month Theme 2023 The National Women's History Alliance designates a yearly theme for Women's History Month. The 2023 theme is "Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories." This theme recognizes "women, past and present, who have been active in all forms of media and storytelling including print, radio, TV, stage, screen, blogs, podcasts, news, and social media." During the month of March, we give a little extra attention to all of the amazing accomplishments of strong, determined women. Since 1987, the United States has formally recognized March as National Women’s History Month. Every woman has a story to tell and gifts to share with the world. So get ready, because this month is about honoring magnificent ladies, and we are ready to celebrate it to the fullest. Celebrating this women’s month by supporting women chase her dreams and fulfilling her educational needs by finding her right scholarships from around the world. HISTORY OF NATIONAL WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH Women’s History Month celebrates the often-overlooked contributions of women in history, society, and culture. It has been annually observed in the United States and other countries, including the United Kingdom and Australia, every March since 1987. The month is observed in October in Canada. March is selected as the month for observing Women’s History Month to correspond with International Women’s Day on March 8, and Canada observes it in October in correspondence with Persons Day on October 18. The month-long commemoration started with Women’s History Day in 1978, organized by the school district of Sonoma, California. Hundreds of students participated in the essay competitions, many presentations were given, and a parade was held in Santa Rosa. The idea caught on and, a few years later, school districts, communities, and organizations all over the country were celebrating the day. In 1980, the National Women’s History Alliance championed for the holiday to be observed as a national week, and this was backed by President Jimmy Carter, who issued the first proclamation declaring the week of March 8 as National Women’s History Week. The following year, Congress forwarded a resolution establishing a national observance. Six years later, the expansion of the event to the whole month of March was successfully petitioned by the National Women’s History Project.

Keystone Business Highlight
"The Story Behind Yellow Bird Studio "
Northwest Tampa Location at 16921 Gunn Hwy, Odessa, FL 33556
by Cass Leonard
It was a pleasure to meet one of our KCA Business Sponsors / Resident member, owner and founder of Yellow Bird Studio, Florie Rieber and her mascot Yellow Canary "Louie". What a heartfelt story she shared that explains the dream and mission she embraced upon her decision of a career change to do something for communities and for children. Before I go into what Yellow Bird Studio offers I would like to roll back to share Florie's journey.
Florie was originally raised in Orlando Florida, being a life long Florida resident. She moved to Tampa, FL in 1994 after college and met her husband John Panzarella who is a family law attorney. They married in 1996, and have one son who recently graduated from Steinbrenner now attending college. Florie's career these years was in School Administration in South Tampa.
One year while on their family vacation in Jefferson , NC Florie was inspired by an Agritourism business who rented Old Christmas Tree Farms. A great experience for families to visit and kids to enjoy. This is where she had her life-changing vision to build an art studio for children, a "happy and joyful" place to expand gifts. Taking things she loves to share while grounding to her roots in the love of Art is Florie's passion.
In 2016, Florie resigned her tenure of School Administration to embark on her dream, opening her first Yellow Bird Studio for children in South Tampa on Westshore Boulevard. With her heart always connected to Art, she developed an amazing program for children to engage their inner creativity to develop "executive function", i.e. goal steps to execute the goal to a final product. Around this time, when she opened her studio Arts were cut out of the schools. She saw the young children would no longer have an outlet to be creative. Florie stated, "The studio is for them (the children) to teach what they can make with their creative minds. The point of creating something is to make it your own. Art media is an outlet to express what you are about, set goals, follow through, and help people reveal truths about themselves."
Florie convinced her husband to move to Westchase in 1997 where they lived until their move to Odessa/Keystone in 2018. Her heart always wished to live in the Odessa /Keystone community, and that dream came true! In 2018, they finally found a home in Odessa in Lake Armistead Estates and became Odessa/Keystone residents.
At this time Florie found this building on the corner of Mobley and Gunn Hwy. that had a space coming available for Lease. In 2022, Florie made the decision to expand Yellow Bird Studio to Northwest Tampa, she signed the lease in October 2022. November 1, 2022 was the grand opening of their second location, and by word of mouth the after school enrollments for programs began. Periodically they offer teen classes and Ladies Art Nights once a month on weekends. Florie shared, "The ladies Art Nights offer Art activities like meditation, a safe container for all. What is said stays in this safe place to talk about our lives if we so choose. The season of Life support and art combined. We use media that suits the person and their vision. Art chosen is the theme for the night." Ladies nights for up to 8 are donation based only. Next Ladies night is April 14, 2023 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
All donations are collected to help cover a child's class who cannot afford a summer or after school program. It is a way of giving back to the community. Yellow Bird appreciates donations of art supplies they appreciate and need such as card board, small wood pieces, yarns, paints, anything that can support artistic creations for the kids. Right now they are in need of any old magazines, any year, any subject (but kid appropriate of course) for collage work. Donation items can be dropped off at their door if not open. Scheduling a small party at the Yellow Bird Studio such as Baby Showers, Small Birthday Parties or small gathering are always welcomed. Visit their website to schedule or contact the studio. https://www.yellowbirdstudiotampa.com/
The BIG enrollment season is here for Summer Camp programs offered weekly. The South Tampa location is booked for the Summer, yet there are still openings at the Keystone location. If you have interest to register your child for the Summer Camp programs, do so as soon as possible on the Yellow Bird Website at: https://www.yellowbirdstudiotampa.com/ I highly recommend stop by or sign up your child for one of the programs at Yellow Bird Studio to escape into the artistic realm and relaxing environment with Louie the mascot and staff. They are truly all about the love for community and giving which is a concept we surely embrace!
Say Hi to Louie!

MARY LEE'S HOUSE MISSION MOMENT Mary Lee’s House mission is to be a safe place where children can begin to heal. Staff here get to see this mission become a reality daily. Recently Reagan Hering, our Operations Manager, told me about a moment when she saw the Mary Lee's House mission taking place in real time. "As I was working in my office, I heard the sound of little footsteps down the hallway. I glanced outside and saw a young girl walking with one of our Corbett Trauma Center therapists as they were coming from the toy closet. Her face was lit up with a bright smile. As the two of them passed, I overheard the girl say, as she held her toy she earned through her therapeutic plan: 'This place really spoils me!'
I couldn't help but feel moved. Despite the circumstances that had brought her here, this child associated Mary Lee's House with positive value and self esteem. This moment was a wonderful reminder of the importance of the work we do, and the impact it can have on the children we serve. I felt proud to be a part of such a wonderful organization, where the work I do enables Mary Lee's House to provide an environment of safety and happiness for our community's most vulnerable children."Visit our website

Easy Keto Bread Recipe!
(No Yeast required)
by C. Leonard
Total Time 45 Minutes to make!
2 Cups almond Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1 Tablespoon baking Powder
3 Tablespoons Ground Flaxseed
4 Large Eggs
1/2 Cup Butter melted
1/2 Cup Water
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Bake. Line a 8 x 4 inch loaf pan with parchment paper, allowing at least an inch on all sides for easy grab removal.
2. In a small bowl, add the almond flour, baking powder and salt, mix well.
3. In a Larger bowl use a hand mixer to beat together the Flaxseed, eggs, butter and water until frothy and bubbles appear. Gently stir through the dry ingredients into the bowl until combined.
4. Transfer the batter into the lined pan. Bake the bread for 40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
5. Let bread cool in the pan completely, before slicing and serving.
TO STORE: Keto bread should always be stored in the refrigerator , covered at all times. The ingredients are too fragile to keep at room temperature. The bread will keep for up to 2 weeks!
I suggest keep bread in the parchment and wrap with saran wrap.
ENJOY!! It's Healthy & DELICIOUS!
