From the Coral Springs City Commission:
As summer winds down and we look ahead to fall, we are thankful for the many upcoming events, meetings, and activities that allow us to engage with residents and businesses.
To pay tribute to the victims and fallen heroes who tragically lost their lives on September 11, 2001, residents are invited to visit the September 11th Memorial at the Northwest Regional Library (3151 N. University Drive.) A 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony will be held on Monday, September 11, at 8:30 a.m. for those who would like to attend. We will never forget the tragic events that took place and their lasting impact on our community and our country.
Commissioner Joy Carter will host Move with the Mayor this month, inviting residents to enjoy a game of Pickleball on Saturday, September 23, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The game will take place at Cypress Park Courts 1 and 2 (1301 Coral Springs Drive.) Participants are encouraged to bring their own racket, water, and a towel.
Keeping the youngest children in our community safe is a top priority. The Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department will hold a Car Seat Installation event on Saturday, September 30, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the City Hall Parking Garage (9500 W. Sample Road.) Certified car seat installers will be on hand to answer questions and to properly install new or existing car seats. Residents are encouraged to bring their car seat(s) and keep the installation area clear.
The First Budget Hearing for FY2024 will take place on Wednesday, September 13, at 5:15 p.m. The final adoption of the budget will occur on Wednesday, September 20, at 6 p.m. This hearing will be followed by a regular Commission meeting starting at 6:30 p.m. As always, the public is invited to attend or view Budget Hearings and Commission meetings. The meetings are aired on CityTV, Blue Stream Channels 25, 25.7, and 725, and on AT&T U-Verse channel 99. Meetings are also live-streamed at CoralSprings.gov/CityTV.
Finally, September is Suicide Awareness Month, when mental health organizations and individuals, both domestically and internationally, raise awareness about suicide prevention. Those who need help are encouraged to dial 9-8-8. The 988 Lifeline is now active across the United States and provides 24/7, free, and confidential support for people in distress.
