From the Coral Springs City Commission:
As we kicked off the new year we were once again met with the challenges of COVID-19. Thankfully city staff and local healthcare partners stepped in to offer new test sites at three city locations as we saw record COVID-19 cases. Our greatest priority is the safety, health and wellness of the residents we serve. To view all city COVID19 resources visit, CoralSprings.org/covid19.
Our goal is to continue with our planned State of the City Concert on February 19. Join us as we celebrate the achievements of the last year, honor our volunteers and committee members and celebrate with great music and food. The event will take place on the Great Lawn of City Hall (9500 West Sample Road) from 5:30 to 10 p.m. For all upcoming events and updates, visit our city’s website.
In February we celebrate Black History Month and are excited to celebrate the achievements and contributions of Black Americans in our community. Learn more about local Black leaders in our community.
This month and every day since February 14, 2018, we remember and honor the 17 students and staff who died at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. We also remember all who were injured and forever touched by the violence experienced that day. We always look for meaningful ways to commemorate and honor the memories of: Alyssa Alhadeff, Scott Beigel, Martin Duque, Nicholas Dworet, Aaron Feis, Jaime Guttenberg, Christopher Hixon, Luke Hoyer, Cara Loughran, Gina Montalto, Joaquin Oliver, Alaina Petty, Meadow Pollack, Helena Ramsay, Alex Schachter, Carmen Schentrup and Peter Wang.
