+ Gulfstream Avenue speed to slow down
Because the city feels the parking situation on Gulfstream Avenue requires a slower speed limit, it wants to reduce the speed limit from 30 mph to 25 mph.
The area has back-in parking, in which cars have to stop and shift into reverse to get into the parking space.
City commissioners have told the city attorney to begin writing a new ordinance and approved a public hearing on the issue that has yet to be scheduled.
