[ARCHIVED] Councilwoman Judy Waldman Brings Together Groups to Solve Traffic Issues in Front of School

Councilwoman Judy Waldman initiated efforts to gather representatives from the Villages of Homestead, Audubon Board, Gateway Environmental K-8, Miami-Dade County School Board, Regional Superintendant’s Office, Brookwood Gardens, Homestead Police Department, and City of Homestead staff to discuss solutions to traffic problems in front of Gateway Environmental School during pickup and drop-off hours.

The April 23rd meeting resulted in a productive discussion between all involved parties who agreed that installing curbing along the pickup and drop-off areas would enhance traffic patterns and increase safety for students. City of Homestead staff has already completed the installation of curbing in the vehicle lanes between Gateway Environmental K-8 and Brookwood Gardens as well as between the school and The Villages of Homestead.

“Various Villages of Homestead residents approached me with concerns about traffic problems and the safety of students who were being dropped off at unsafe locations all over the street,” said Councilwoman Waldman. “Installing curbing in these areas has been a goal and an ongoing project for the past the two years. I knew that bringing all the parties together to work towards a solution to better the traffic flow and encourage parents to drop off students at designated areas, would allow us to make a difference in this issue. Our next pursuit is sidewalks and street lights from Southeast 12 Avenue to Farm Life Road.”
