From the Coral Springs City Commission:
Happy New Year to all our residents and local businesses! As we put what was an unprecedented year behind us, it is important for us to focus on the future and what the promise of a new year can bring to the City of Coral Springs.
As we start the year, we encourage you to be optimistic, embrace diversity, and work together to ensure our city is the best community to live, work, and raise a family.
We look forward to kicking off strategic planning with city staff. This type of preparation assists us to clearly identify our city’s greatest priorities, defines new initiatives, and creates a path to meeting the needs of our residents and business owners. The input we receive from our residents, the very people who elected us to hold office plays a large role in our decision making. Participation in public meetings, sending us an email, connecting with the city on social media, and using the My Coral Springs App are all ways you can offer input and help guide our city’s direction.
As the demolition of One Financial Plaza continues, making way for the development of Cornerstone, we will start to see great improvement of our Downtown area. This revitalization in the heart of Coral Springs will not only improve revenue but will also create a true sense of place. In the coming year, we look forward to seeing plans for Village Square, the creation of a nature trail at Kiwanis park, and the development of a Surf Park at Sportsplex.
With the distribution of promising vaccines, we are hopeful to see the end of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our city has held a long-standing partnership with the Florida Department of Health to ensure our city receives vaccines for distribution once they are made available for mass distribution. It is important to stay informed about the potential for this availability by texting the keyword CORALSPRINGS (one word) to 888-777 or visiting our website www.coralsprings.org.
We continue to serve as a host city for two free, state-run, public COVID-19 test sites: Mullins Hall, 10150 NW 29th Street, Coral Springs, and the Panthers IceDen, 3299 Sportsplex Drive. For instructions, days, times of operation, and closures, follow the city on social media or visit our website.
As we look to 2021 with optimism, we are hopeful that with a vaccine, we can plan for and welcome back exciting events and activities this year! Stay informed about important city updates and events by following us on social media via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Nextdoor.
We wish you all a safe and healthy 2021!
The Coral Springs Commission is Mayor Scott Brook, Vice Mayor Joy Carter, Commissioners Shawn Cerra, Nancy Metayer, and Joshua Simmons.
