The City of Coral Gables is hosting a series of Traffic Calming Workshops to seek your input on how to improve the safety of our streets. We want to hear directly from you about what traffic calming solutions can produce safer roads and prevent traffic accidents.
By participating in these workshops, you’ll have a say on how to improve the livability of your own neighborhoods. Please join us in any of the following meetings that are closest to you:
Monday, Sept. 17, 6 - 8 p.m., Coral Gables Museum, 285 Aragon Ave.
Thursday, Sept. 20, 6 - 8 p.m., St. Thomas Episcopal Church, 5690 N. Kendall Dr.
Wednesday, Oct. 3, 6:30pm - 8:30pm, Youth Center, 405 University Dr.

Saturday, Oct. 6, 10 a.m. - 12 noon, Coral Gables Library, 3443 Segovia St.
*Meetings are subject to change.
The City recently entered into an important Memorandum of Understanding with Miami-Dade County which allows the City to fund, design and implement certain pre-approved traffic calming measures provided the City follow established County guidelines. Traffic calming improvements are normally the exclusive purview of Miami-Dade County.
The workshops are part of the City’s commitment and on-going dialogue with our stakeholders to develop best practices and use proper devices that will mitigate cut-through traffic and reduce speeding on residential streets. They are also vital for the integration of a Multimodal Transportation Plan, a long-term blueprint currently in the works that will result in a complete and strategic approach to improve all mobility needs in Coral Gables.
Your feedback is extremely important to us, and we are counting on you to be part of this exciting conversation. We look forward to seeing you there.
