SDM to PB Council – build the roundabout and you will have a friend in (SDM)

You can feel the community excitement build over the potential of a roundabout installed at the Old Cutler/Ludlum/Howard Drive intersection.  See the post below: (April 12, 2013): Finally, you can give your input of the long awaited 136/Howard Drive/Old Cutler Traffic circle project this Wednesday April 17 at the Committee of the Whole (COW) meeting. 

How will the council react to this circle that has been worked on by Pinecrest and Miami-Dade County, will this mayor and council actually jump on board with this project?  Please do. The traffic circles (or roundabouts) have been outstanding additions to the overall traffic calming program started in Palmetto Bay under the original council. Keep the infrastructure improvements coming!

Another South Dade Blog, South Dade Matters (SDM) has even weighed in “PB: Roundabout" even offering a deal that may be too good for the present mayor and council to resist: SDM’s message to the village council is go for it! The intersection at issue is perfect for a circle. Make it pedestrian and jogger friendly and SDM might actually write something nice about you. 

Well, well, well, Mayor Stanczyk, you have a found a friend indeed. SDM likes to quote from music and therefore I dedicate the following lyrics and video clip in honor of this new found friendship between the Palmetto Bay Council and SDM: 

You've got a friend in me
When the road looks rough ahead
And you're miles and miles
From your nice warm bed
Just remember what your old pal said
Boy, you've got a friend in me

  1. Gene,

    The council should stop fighting, just for one day and continue your work at village traffic calming. We miss you.

    Here is one for the memories,
