Idea: Art Village

Cristina Ganz about 2 years ago

Full disclosure: I am NOT a Coconut Creek resident, but I do live right next door in Deerfield Beach- just over the city line. I just wanted to offer a suggestion that I thought might be embraced. As an artist myself, I have found that it is hard to find studio space in North Broward. (outside of warehouse space) Every day I drive by the empty VCA building/lot and I think to myself, "THAT would make a cool little Artist Village." I can envision a variety of artists' studios surrounding a common courtyard. It could have a shop and once a month an "Art Walk" or other type of event at night. There is nothing like that in this part of Broward county. To experience that we currently need to go to Fort Lauderdale or Miami. What do you think, Coconut Creek?

Would love to see a restaurant move into Publix shopping center for families. Usually end up going to Coral Springs.. for dining.

Has or would the City consider adding an aquatics complex similar to those of Pompano and Coral Springs? An aquatics complex with olympic size lap pool for swim classes, open lap swimming, kids swim programs, and shallow water pools for water-aerobics would be great amenities for all residents of Coconut Creek to utilize.

I would suggest a bicycle trail if possible.

Starbucks? Dunkin Donuts and a family style restaurant
