Worth Another Look, “Join Us for a Public Discussion about Our Traffic”.

Event held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center . . .
over 4½ months ago.

From the program on May 22nd:

“How did we get here? Traffic congestion used to be a topic of discussion when talking about Miami or Ft. Lauderdale, but West Palm Beach? This panel discussion will help us understand the contributing factors that got us where we are today, and if we do nothing, will we become one big megatropolis from West Palm Beach to Miami.

and. . .

“We were reminded again by former West Palm Beach Mayor Graham [1991–1999] that a vision had been in place when she was in office — she thinks that has since been lost — the city she thought needs a vision so developers and city officials don’t make decisions ‘willy nilly’.”

“Getting from Point A . . .
to Point B”.
