CITY OF HALLANDALE BEACH HOSTS PUBLIC WORKSHOP TO INITIATE A ‘COMPLETE STREETS’ MAKE-OVER


An upcoming enhancement project along Atlantic Shores Boulevard envisions the street as a more livable corridor, prioritizing pedestrian safety and mobility.


One of Hallandale Beach’s city streets may soon become a lot more user-friendly. The City and its Department of Public Works will host a public workshop January 28th – 30th to come up with concept alternatives to improve Atlantic Shores Boulevard, between Federal Hwy/US1 and Diplomat Parkway.

The public is invited to participate during the workshop to provide input and help craft a strategy to implement enhancements along Atlantic Shores Boulevard.

Complete Streets are part of a broader effort to shift from the conventional approach of designing our transportation network only for automobiles and provide people more choices in the way they get around. The goal, according to Keven Klopp, Assistant City Manager, is to provide all residents with safe, functional access along City streets. Aiming for a walkable environment is important in terms of quality of life to residents.

“By bringing together local stakeholders and residents to provide ideas and input towards the development of alternatives for this important project, we are confident that a plan will take shape,” Klopp said. “A Complete Streets approach for the enhancements along Atlantic Shores Boulevard will help city streetscapes meet the needs of people who walk, bike, take transit as well as those who drive through this area”.

Residents, business owners, and agency partners are being encouraged to participate and provide feedback in relation to the changes and improvements they feel would best suit this corridor.

Since the inception of the Complete Streets movement in 2004, more than 1,300 jurisdictions have put Complete Streets initiatives into action. The improvements made in cities include bike facilities and enhanced crosswalks, as well as other aesthetic changes that increase curb appeal and make streets safer and more walkable.

Upon conclusion of the workshop, the project team is expected to finalize recommendations and present them to the City for approval prior to moving forward with the development of construction documents.

The workshop is being held at the Cultural Community Center, 410 SE 3rd Street, Hallandale Beach, FL 33009. The activities between January 28th – 30th include a walking audit on Tuesday January 28th at 11 a.m. and an informal Open House on Wednesday January 29th from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. On Thursday January 30 there will also be Open House hours from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. with a closing community presentation and wrap-up discussion from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
