Attending along with County Commissioner Dave Kerner will be staff from PBC Engineering and Public Works and representatives from the Florida Dept. of Transportation (FDOT).

Here is a message from Commissioner Hardy:

“I’m breaking my Facebook fast* to let everyone know I’ve organized a town hall meeting about traffic congestion at:

  • 10th Ave. North and North A St.
  • 10th Ave. North and North D St.
  • Worthmore Dr. [22nd Ave. North] and North Dixie Hwy.

Why these locations? Because we [the City of Lake Worth] do not control the traffic signals at those intersections and I thought we should give our residents the opportunity to talk with the organizations that do control them: Palm Beach County and the FDOT.”

Commissioner Hardy believes this conversation will be a fruitful one and hopes everyone who is affected and concerned will attend this upcoming Town Hall: Palm Beach County and the State of Florida need to hear your frustration.

*Hardy wrote last month, “I have a lot to accomplish this Summer and cannot have any distractions. So I’ll begin a hiatus from social media.” Hardy’s social media hiatus will last at least through the month of July. If you don’t have his phone number you can reach him through the messenger app on Facebook.
     Whilst on the topic of social media, at the June meeting of the Mango Groves Neighborhood Assoc. it was learned from Ben Kerr, the City of Lake Worth’s Public Information Officer, that an official City Facebook page will soon be up and sharing information with the public. e.g., upcoming public meetings and community events.
