From the Coral Springs City Commission:
September means it’s time to say goodbye to the long summer days and hello to the golden glow of the fall season.
Time flies but we will never forget the unimaginable events that happened September 11, 2001, and the lasting impact they have had on our community and country. This year marks 21 years since the terrorist attacks devastated our nation. To commemorate the victims and fallen heroes, residents are invited to visit the September 11th Memorial at the Northwest Regional Library (3151 N. University Drive).
Family Fun Night will be held on Wednesday September 14th at 6pm at Coral Springs High School. This free event is one of many interactive activities our Parks and Recreation Department hosts throughout the year to bring families together.
Additionally, Bites-N-Sips will return to the Great Lawn of City Hall on Friday, September 16 from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Don’t miss this fiesta-themed event featuring Hispanic food trucks, music, entertainment and more. For information on our city’s upcoming events, visit CoralSprings.gov/events.
The city continues to use American Rescue Plan (ARPA) funds to improve the health, well-being and aesthetics of our city. Current projects include a fitness park in Riverside Park, sidewalk replacement, road surface improvements and improvements in the Everglades. Current information on these projects can be found at CoralSprings.clearpointstrategy.com.
Many projects and developments take place in Coral Springs. All projects in downtown Coral Springs are part of the Community Redevelopment Agency’s master plan, adopted in 2014. While the first phase of development at Cornerstone is residential, we are pleased to welcome Hyatt Place with a rooftop bar, retail and office space. Stay up to date on Downtown projects below CoralSprings.gov/downtown.
The first budget hearing for FY2023 will take place on Monday, September 12 at 5:15 p.m. and the final adoption of the budget will take place on Wednesday, September 21 at 6:00 p.m. These hearings will be followed by a regular Commission meeting starting at 6:30 pm As always, the public is invited to attend or view the budget hearings and Commission meetings. Meetings will be broadcast on CityTV, Blue Stream Channels 25, 25.7, 725 and AT&T U-Verse Channel 99. Meetings are also streamed live at CoralSprings.gov/CityTV.
