Good morning Aubrey, yes the suggested basketball hoops were a good idea but unfortunately the area that was thought of for adding basketball hoops has been developed into two much needed Small Kid Baseball/Softball fields as well as a Football/Soccer practice area. For your information we do have basketball courts just a few blocks away from Sabal Pines Park located at Winston Park and Recreation Complex. Thank you for your suggestion and have a great day!

David,

That is correct. Cooper's Hawk will be moving into the northern end of the Promenade that is why the area is currently blocked off. The City is in talks with the Promenade's new management company to discuss parking options.

Please let us know if you have further questions.

Thank you.

Brian,

Our Code Compliance Supervisor is working with the Police Department in dealing with vehicles parked in the roadway.

Our Code prohibits vehicles parked in a roadway. It does permit the homeowner or their guests to completely park their vehicles in swales adjacent to their home. For your reference, this is the City code: https://www.municode.com/library/fl/coconut_creek/codes/code_of_ordinances?nodeId=PTIICOOR_CH19TRMOVE.

The City of Coconut Creek is one of the few cities in Broward County that is still in the development stage; meaning that we still have room for growth. The City is making every effort to guide such growth in a responsible manner while recognizing the development rights of property owners.

According to Mr. Webster, Coordinator, Legislative Affairs, Broward County Schools, Monarch High School is the only school in Coconut Creek that is slightly overcrowded.

Frank, please contact Yugal Lall, Senior Engineer at (954) 973-6786 or YLall@coconutcreek.net to discuss flood zoning in your particular area. He is aware that you may be calling him.

The City recognizes and listens to the concerns of our residents. For any major development, the City provides for an extensive public hearing process which is the appropriate forum to voice concerns, objections, and even support for proposed development projects. Such input is welcomed and extremely valuable to our decision making process. For reference, each parcel of land in the City has a land use and zoning designation which establishes the development pattern for that particular area. Land owners must follow the City's land use and zoning guidelines. Once again, feel free to call us with any other concerns: 954.973.6722. Thank you.

Yvonne Lopez, Community Relations Director admin over 3 years ago on Change street lamp lights to LED.

Hi Fiorella,

There are roughly 1600 streetlights along the public roadways within the City. About 1400 of them are owned and operated by either FPL or Broward County (probably 90%/10% respectively). Less than 200 of them, sporadically throughout the City, are actually owned by the City. The County maintains and pays energy costs for their own streetlights and the City pays FPL a fixed amount per pole per month which includes all maintenance, repair and energy costs for their lights. FPL would require the City to pay the cost of upgrading the fixtures which they would own (LED fixtures are significantly more expensive than the existing High Pressure Sodium fixtures-HPS). The City does not utilize incandescent fixtures, which were predominantly phased out as an option in the 1950’s as better fixture technologies emerged. Considering we would experience only a minimal reduction in carbon footprint, there would be virtually no advantage to the City to make such a large investment as there would be no payback and the added cost would likely result in an increase from FPL in our monthly rates.

We will keep you posted if there are any changes. Thanks for your idea!

Hi Marilyn,

We understand your frustration with this issue. Our staff have touched base with Cocomar today and they have reconfirmed the information emailed to you on February 27th. The County Commission has approved the C-4 dredging project; however, they will not be able to proceed with the project at this time due to funding.

The next semi-annual Cocomar Board meeting will be held in April and they will be sending you the Public Notice when it is ready. We recommend that you attend the Cocomar meeting and express your concerns to the Board at that time.

In addition, per City Code Sec. 13-259(a)(4), canal bank maintenance is the responsibility of the abutting property owner. If you would like to discuss this further, feel free to contact Randall Blanchette, Transportation and Stormwater Engineer, at 954-973-6786.
