‘Tis a Streetscape Soirée!
.
As a @palmbeachcountyfl resident, I personally am very excited about this past Thursday’s 11/7 unveiling of the newly, reopened Clematis Street in @downtownwpb. Myself and many of my neighbors have spent months navigating the area due to extensive renovation of the popular street. Thursday’s event itself, the “Clematis Streetscape Project” soirée was an evening, celebratory affair hosted by partners @cityofwestpalmbeach and @wpbcra. .
.
The Clematis Street construction was a major challenge to residents. I, for one, definitely had to get creative when running my own daily trips to the West Palm Beach community @starbucks, @theyogasocietypb, restaurants, @mandelpubliclibrary and others. With @mayor_keith_james announcement, there are several project highlights:
.
• A curbless Street that prioritizes the pedestrians.
.
• Narrower traffic light lanes to slow travel speed for cars.
.
• High-visibility crosswalks and mid-block crossings.
.
• More regularly spaced shade trees.
.
• Reduced parking spaces to make room for “people space.”
.
• Wider sidewalks for more walkway space, dining space and furnished seating.

A huge thank you goes to @westpalmpd for doing a fantastic job carefully, controlling the downtown chaos caused by the project. The Clematis Streetscape project is and will continue to make a large impact on our community. How exciting?!
