WLRN covers traffic town hall - Tuesday, September 27, 2016

We had a full house for our town hall meeting on traffic.  I had the pleasure of holding this meeting with our County Commissioner, Daniella Levine Cava.  See the report of WLRN:

Is It Possible To Have Too Many Stop Signs? Depends On The Alternatives, Palmetto Bay Residents Say - Kate Stein reporting.

The catalyst for this meeting was the County's removal of two stop signs in Mangowood on 82nd avenue at 148th Drive.  Formerly a 4 way stop, the traffic travelling 82nd avenue is no longer required to stop. 

As reported:
Malbrook 9-29-16
Officials and residents agree the underlying issue is the overall increase in traffic through Palmetto Bay. Many residents say they’re worried about other areas as well -- as drivers avoid traffic by cutting through residential streets.

Palmetto Bay continues to work on a comprehensive traffic plan - traffic calming plan.  There are currently many traffic calming initiatives going on throughout Palmetto Bay at the current time - and as one resident so directly pointed out: We are paying an additional tax when we have to use our tax dollars to address issues created by Miami-Dade County.
