Village of Pinecrest planning for future of US-1

The Pinecrest Village Council has initiated a process for the creation of a vision and community consensus for the future development, redevelopment, beautification and enhancement of the Pinecrest Parkway (US-1) commercial corridor. A steering committee of residents and business owners has been meeting since April as part of the process.

“The goal is to work together with the community to identify effective solutions for the beautification and enhancement of the US-1 commercial corridor,” said Mayor Cindy Lerner.

The visioning process will include an interactive one-day community planning session that will result in a series of recommendations for the corridor. The session will be held on Saturday, June 9, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., at Evelyn Greer Park. The Village encourages all residents, business owners and interested parties to attend and participate.

“Public participation and input are vital to ensure that the public’s goals and vision for the US-1 commercial corridor are reflected in future planning and redevelopment efforts,” said Village Manager Yocelyn Galiano Gomez.

Discussion items at the session will include redevelopment opportunities, land development regulations, landscaping, visual preference and aesthetics, parking, public safety, improved pedestrian and vehicular circulation, and economic incentives.

The Village has provided additional information about the future planning of US-1 at www.pinecrest-fl.gov.
