From the Coral Springs City Commission:
It’s hard to believe we are already halfway through 2021!
June marks the end of the school year and the beginning of the summer season. Now that more than half of the Broward County population are vaccinated, life has started to feel a bit more normal. We are so excited to start resuming in-person events and activities with our residents.
Effective today, June 1, all fully vaccinated employees, visitors, and contractors entering a city facility are no longer required to wear a facial covering or have a wellness check. In accordance with CDC guidelines, individuals who are not fully vaccinated are encouraged to continue using facial coverings while indoors.
Commission Meetings are no longer virtual, starting with our June 2 Commission Meeting. Residents can attend in-person or watch the meeting online or on CityTV. Those who would like to provide public comment must submit a request in writing no later than the day of the meeting.
The City of Coral Springs offers several fun and engaging opportunities for our kids this summer, including Kamp Kool, CSMoA Summer Camp, Camp Wild and more. For more details about city camps, visit www.coralsprings.org/camps.
On Saturday, June 19, 2021, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., the City of Coral Springs will host an in-person, POD style commemoration in honor of Juneteenth, Freedom Day – a day that symbolizes the abolition of slavery in the United States of America. The event will include a special performance by international blues singer-songwriter Kat Riggins, the Valerie Tyson Band, spoken word segments, and guest speakers. For more information visit our website.
We remind our residents that June kicks off the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season, which is predicted to be a busy storm season. As a city, we always prepare and plan ahead of Hurricane Season. We remind our residents to stock up and prepare too. At a minimum, residents should strengthen their homes and ensure a fully stocked disaster supply kit. Additional actions residents should take to ensure they are prepared to include the following:
- Purchase at least 5-7 days of cleaning supplies and nonperishable food.
- Prepare to be without power, stock up on batteries, and keep electronics fully charged.
- Sign up to our text message option for the latest information emergency-related information by texting ALERTCS (one word) to 888-777.
