Here are three issues we think will impact the city in a big way this year. Let us know which others you feel we should add to the list:
1. Expansion. Several major developments are expected to come out of the ground, from the Bristol Tower luxury condos on South Flagler Drive, to One West Palm, an office/hotel/condo project with two 30-story towers, on Quadrille Boulevard.
2. Traffic. The city is expected to undertake a “mobility study,” to help figure out how to prevent even worse traffic around Okeechobee Boulevard and elsewhere downtown.
3. Redesigns. Planning will progress on redesigns of sections of Broadway in the North End and of South Dixie Highway, from Okeechobee to Albemarle Road, reducing road width and adding trees, bike lanes and other features to make the arteries more pleasant for neighborhood residents and shoppers.
