Residents of Longboat Key got a test drive last week, but not of a sleek new roadster or a sensible, frugal hybrid.

In fact, no one took the wheel or shifted gears.

But about 25 people, including a handful of elected officials, did indeed keep their eyes on the road – Gulf of Mexico Drive, in particular – during a test drive before buying at City Hall highlighting the vision of the island largely two-lane street.

Measuring 10 miles from drawbridge to drawbridge, Gulf of Mexico Drive is part residential street, part tourist thoroughfare, part shopping boulevard, part fitness trail, and part state-controlled highway that s spans 18 miles of Sarasota’s waterfront in the middle of Holmes Beach.

Five traffic accidents involving motorists, pedestrians and cyclists have killed six people since May 2018 on Gulf of Mexico Drive.

City leaders and consultant Kimley-Horn have been working for months on proposals to one day make Gulf of Mexico Drive safer for everyone through a series of improvements to bike lanes, crosswalks, multi-use lanes adjacent and tricky intersections.

Called the Complete Street Corridor, Kimley-Horn project manager and senior planner Colleen McGue said the idea is to “provide people with safe and comfortable travel options no matter how they travel.”

Through a presentation, a Q&A, and opportunities to mark up giant maps of the Gulf of Mexico Drive corridor with stickers and post-its to jot down specific ideas and locations, residents weighed in on what they liked, what they didn’t and suggestions that hadn’t been considered before.

“A Single Segment”

Resident Lenny Landau warned planners to carefully consider where crosswalks are proposed, saying he sees many people crossing within sight of a marked path on the sidewalk, as many of the actual crosswalks” goes from one place to no place”.

“If they’re there, they don’t use them because they’re not going where they want to go,” he said. “You have to pick the spots. …At the north end of Broadway is a good example of people going from here to there. But to put one in the middle of the street where there’s a condo on one side and nothing else, they just don’t go.

Residents of Bayport, just south of Bayfront Park along the only stretch of Gulf of Mexico Drive with a beach immediately to the west, have pointed out to city officials that their situation is the exact opposite.

A trip across the Gulf of Mexico Driving to the beach can be heartbreaking, at some points crossing an extra traffic lane or two, allowing for a turn/acceleration lanes, to one of the rare breaks in an adjacent parallel hedge.

Not that a crosswalk in this area is a new idea.

Well, an officially sanctioned one, anyway. Nearly 20 years ago, one morning in January, residents woke up to hand-painted crosswalk strips leading from Gulfshore to the beach. The director of public works at the time, Juan Florensa, saw him on his way to work that morning and informed the FDOT.

David Bishop, City Commissioner BJ Bishop reviews a proposed roundabout at the north end of the island on Broadway Street with Mike Donahue of Kimley-Horn.

It was quickly painted black.

“I think it had to be a two-man job, and I don’t know how they could have done it without being seen by motorists,” one resident told the Longboat Observer in 2004, adding that what was really needed was a pedestrian bridge. .

No bridge is among the proposals the city is considering, but Bayport residents have emailed City Hall asking for a 35mph reduction and asking for a crosswalk that lines up with one of the paths through the hedge.

Ben Johnson, a full-time Bayport resident who attended the City Hall workshop, said an official crosswalk would be a big help. City officials reminded residents of the limits of what can be built in 45 mph zones and how unlikely it was to earn a lower speed concession from the FDOT.

A large-scale map was laid out on a conference table and another table.

A so-called crosswalk, which features a pedestrian shelter halfway through, would be “nirvana” for the community, Johnson said, particularly upon returning from a sunset visit to the beach when darkness falls. “It’s not one of those places where there’s a crosswalk that leads nowhere.”

“The problem is that the traffic is starting to get pretty heavy,” Johnson said. “A lot of us are older, 60s, 70s, 80s, and we walk a bit slowly, so it’s quite difficult to judge if you have a big enough gap.”

Public Works Director Isaac Brownman said there are 13 connections to Gulf of Mexico Drive about half a mile south of Bayfront Park, including Bayport, Twin Shores and Gulfshore. “We know this is an area where people like to cross anywhere, because the beach is right there,” he said, adding that the FDOT said the nature of the highway at this place is unlike any other on the island.

He said FDOT officials had indicated it could be similar to a school zone or wildlife crossing zone, but no one was really interested in setting a slower speed limit there to match such a solution. traffic ready to use.

“But they’re willing to be creative and think outside the box because it’s such a unique segment,” Brownman said.

Two wheels

While some residents expressed interest in a bicycle-only lane instead of a sidewalk on the west side, the consensus among avid cyclists was for a wider, better-buffered pair of lanes for cycling within the carriageway limits.

Bike lanes today are four feet wide, with a single strip separating motor vehicle lanes. A seven-foot-wide cycle path is proposed that includes a two-foot-wide transition zone, marked with double stripes.

The 1/2 mile segment of Gulf of Mexico Drive from Bayfront Park to the south has approximately 13 connections from communities to the east.

Previously, marshals moved away from reflectors or rumble strips in the transition zone, but backed painted lines that made drivers feel like their wheels were leaving their part of the roadway.

Why Speed ​​Matters

Kimley-Horn’s initial recommendations included converting speed limits from 45mph to 35mph in three areas, the north end, the south end centered on Country Club Shores and a segment in the middle of the island roughly from Bay Isles Parkway to Bayfront Park.

Participants could use the appropriate sticker on a large-scale map to simultaneously mark an idea and a place.

City commissioners have recommended sticking to 45mph speed limits. With new state guidelines, the city’s existing crosswalks complete with flashing yellow lights are no longer allowed to be built in 45 mph zones, although they are allowed to remain for now.

The only pedestrian crossing signals allowed in 45 mph zones are the more expensive hybrid pedestrian beacons with red lights, which carry the same traffic rules as a stop light. Two such lights have been proposed to replace the yellow-lit crosswalks at Bayfront Park and Longboat Key Club Road.

What happens afterwards?

Following the public outreach portion of the project, Kimley-Horn will work with FDOT and other agencies and the city to finalize the plans and possibly group them into phases and develop cost estimates. To redo the entire road in one project is probably prohibitively expensive.

The city and Kimley-Horn tentatively expect a brief to be presented to the commission by the fall, though state funding must still be sought from the Sarasota-Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization.

We asked . . . and you answered.

Our question was simple: how would you spend $350 million to improve Long Island?

Now, we’re giving the spotlight to readers who had plenty of great ideas for how to spend the state’s new Long Island Investment Fund. Some are small requests; others are huge dreams. This one pot of money can’t tackle them all. But they are worth considering as national and local authorities plan for the island’s future.

Readers repeatedly touch on key issues: transportation, public transit, sewer and wastewater management, environment, workforce development, education, and housing.

Let’s start with the topic that kept coming back: roads.

“Fix those cursed roads!” said one reader.

“Throwing cold asphalt into an ever-expanding hole is no solution,” wrote another, who called for funds to be spent on repaving “all the rutted highways.” Readers have pointed out other places that need special attention, like the infamous Oakdale Merge.

Others noted that now is the time to focus not just on driving, but on other forms of transportation essential to the future of the island. “I want easy, fast, efficient transportation everywhere without having to drive,” wrote one reader, suggesting “high-speed trains all over the state.”

Another urged spending money “to make it possible to live really well and comfortably in the suburbs of Long Island without a car.” Among the specific ideas: new Long Island Rail Road routes, tracks and stations; Light Rail; bus lines; and cycle paths. A Long Islander imagined something grander: a bullet train on the Southern State Parkway and the Long Island Expressway.

On the environmental side, readers suggested solar panels in schools and hospitals, incentives for electric vehicles and more charging stations, and – again and again – clean water. One local rightly noted that the editorial board’s focus on the blue economy would make little sense “if the water is polluted and there’s no clam fishing, no swimming “. Wastewater management and more sewers are essential, readers said, citing neighborhoods like West Sayville, Sayville and Oakdale, where one reader highlighted cleaning up the “Grand Canal.”

“It’s not a glamorous project,” began one reader, describing the hundreds of thousands of cesspools on the island and suggesting it was “time to tackle the dirty, gritty problems in our area.”

More “glamorous” ideas were also raised: constructing an “innovative building of hands-on teaching, technology and entrepreneurship learning at Stony Brook University,” wrote one reader; use the open space to build large dormitory-style housing complexes open first to older people wanting to sell their homes to younger families, another said; preparing “our young workers for the industries of tomorrow”, such as artificial intelligence, space exploration and medical research, said a third.

The people of Long Island have spoken. Now it’s up to our officials to listen.

The participatory budget process will continue with discussions between experts in their respective fields, who will assess the feasibility of the ideas; these assessments will be announced at the end of May. Public discussions will then take place with these experts and those who submitted the ideas, following which the 25 proposals eligible for the October referendum will be revealed, according to a press release from the Tartu city government.

All submitted ideas can be viewed and commented on in the Volis Information System.

Tartu started experimenting with Participatory Budgeting in 2013. This year marks the 10th year that Estonia’s second largest city will run a Participatory Budgeting program.

To date, 16 ideas have been or are being implemented with the support of Tartu’s participatory budget.

Ideas implemented so far include lowering curbs, installing safety guardrails along Emajõgi river bans between Kaarsild Bridge and Victory Bridge, rebuilding the roof of the historic Raadi Stable, the Pocket Park at the Widget Factory (Aparaaditehas), and walking paths along the banks of the Emajõgi River and in the Tähtvere Arboretum.

Last year’s winning ideas, the transformation of the old port railway line into a cycling and pedestrian “green corridor” and the redesign of Emajõgi beach, are currently underway.

Community feedback helped modify initial plans to transform the central business district of Moruya into a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood, allowing more parking spaces and facilities for e-bikes to be retained.

Previous work included elevated level crossings at Shore and Ford Streets, a roundabout at the intersection of Ford Street and Ford Lane, and the introduction of a 30km speed zone.

Eurobodalla Shire Council subsequently sought further community feedback on further improvements to Moruya, including raised level crossings on Church and Queen Streets and regular two-hour street parking.

Eurobodalla traffic committee chair Amber Schutz said the council had agreed to accept $280,000 in funding from Transport for NSW for the project earlier this year, conditional on further engagement with the businesses and the community.

“In February and March, we saw extensive media and social coverage of the proposed upgrade; we wrote to all the businesses and owners, went out to talk to the 101 businesses in the CBD, and held two street-side community drop-in sessions with the council’s technical staff,” she said.

“Of the 54 business owners or managers who spoke to us, 91% were in favor of the proposed infrastructure improvements and 96% in favor of two-hour on-street parking.

“Of the 31 community members who attended a walk-in session, 89% were in favor of the changes.”

Cr Schutz said this engagement has resulted in positive changes in the CBD upgrade.

“Thanks to suggestions from the community, we were able to retain 10 additional parking spaces, maintain accessible parking right in front of the physiotherapist, and ensure bike racks are visible and able to accommodate e-bikes,” he said. she declared.

The new work should be completed by the end of June.

Arjun Singh said he is also starting 100 community conversations, during which he hopes to receive ideas and have his platform reviewed by a variety of residents.

If Com. Arjun Singh was set to become mayor, he proposes cutting city grants for the Kamloops Center for the Arts project, revising discretionary spending at City Hall, holding monthly hours of operation and organizing a three-month festival for healthy, low-carbon transport.

Singh pitched campaign ideas Monday, April 25 at a press conference at Spirit Square in North Kamloops. Singh told reporters that he is also starting 100 community conversations, where he hopes to receive ideas and have his platform reviewed by a variety of residents.

Its platform, which will be finalized in August or September, ahead of the October 15 municipal elections, includes 10 “bold ideas for action”. Singh said a mayor’s job is to lead and come up with ideas, which he said should be based on innovation and evidence.

The business case for the arts center includes a municipal operating expenditure grant of $700,000 in the first year and reduced to $380,000 in the fifth year. Singh suggested space in the arts center for businesses as an idea to reduce the center’s operating grant.

“I think as close to zero as possible,” he said when asked how much the city should subsidize the running costs of the facility. “I mean obviously we subsidize. We are not looking to make money, but we are looking to keep taxes as low as possible. »

Singh pointed to rising taxes and costs for policing and emergency preparedness. He also proposes a review of discretionary spending at the town hall, which he described as “difficult”, but “important”. When asked what types of expenses should be reviewed and what such a review would look like, Singh said it would be a conversation between staff, council and the community, but he wondered. if residents wanted to spend $200,000 a year on tournament bidding and fund marketing budgets.

Singh is known to be a councilor who is readily available to the public, and he wants to set aside one day a month during office hours to hear from residents with ideas and/or concerns. He says he wants to promote the fact that the town hall should be open to everyone.

A proposed three-month festival would focus on healthy, low-carbon transportation with the goal of showing residents how they could use carpooling, public transit, e-bikes, cycling and walking and identify how to make safer active transportation.

“It’s like bike-to-work week on steroids,” Singh said.

Singh’s other ideas include:

• establish 24/7 crisis outreach teams;

• bringing together local representatives from all levels of government to work together on community safety;

• Funding for a citizens’ assembly on housing supply and affordability, including recommendations for council to implement;

• involve the town hall in the recruitment of health professionals;

• encourage expansion and commercial attraction that add to the city’s tax base, such as a partnership between a film studio and the Regional District of Thompson-Nicola;

• Create a business case for building a community center for youth and seniors, similar to the John Brathwaite Community Center in North Vancouver.

Singh is among four people to announce their candidacy for mayor after Mayor Ken Christian announced on Family Day that he would not seek re-election. Businessman Ray Dhaliwal, advisor. Dieter Duty and businessman Reid Hamer-Jackson also said.

If you want to start your own transportation business and profit from it, here are some profitable business ideas to get started in various industries. Consider the following ten types of transportation services that you can create based on your interests, demands, work, and business and industry experience – exemption from transport allowance, were also made available by the government.

Taxi services

Uber has taken taxi services to new heights. The ease of booking a taxi using the app, wherever you are, makes it the most accessible mode of transport for many people. Uber successfully operates in over 300 cities and 60 countries around the world. Uber is responsible for all financial and payment aspects of the ride. However, if it is your vehicle, you will be responsible for its maintenance and any motor or two-wheeler insurance you purchase for your Uber vehicle.

Get a two-wheeler rental

They rent two-wheelers, whether it’s your bike or a bicycle, is a growing sector in many tourist towns and recreational areas. This is a growing trend, especially in high tourist areas. Many resorts and hotels provide their guests and customers with two-wheelers so that they can explore the city on their own. Take out two-wheeler insurance for your vehicles to cover any unforeseen contingencies or damage, including third-party coverage.

Obtain a limousine service

Limousine services have grown in popularity in recent years. Celebrities aren’t the only ones using limo services; ordinary people do too, and we are only discussing limo rentals to ordinary people. They can book your limo for their special day to have a remarkable and memorable trip with their loved ones, so make sure they have a pleasant ride.

Be the owner/operator of a truck

Accepting contracts and bidding on them is what this business understands. You can either hire drivers to perform these contracts or do all the trucking yourself to start your own business. You can achieve this in two ways: you can hire drivers on a contract basis, which means you will receive contracts from manufacturers and find drivers to deliver their goods to fulfill the contract or hire drivers directly.

Transport by boat

Starting your boat transportation service can be extremely useful in a location surrounded by bodies of water. This is a seasonal opportunity with many advantages during the pre- and post-seasons of the sailing season. It was busy at that time as many people employed such services to transport their boats in or out of the sea.

Livestock transport

This company is never unemployed. A business license would be required to move animals from one site to another. Buy a utility vehicle that can safely transport a large number of animals. For this, you will need to hire qualified people who have prior expertise in moving animals for commercial purposes.

Transport by boat

Starting your boat transportation service in areas surrounded by bodies of water can be very profitable. It’s a seasonal opportunity and a great way to supplement your income during the sailing season. It is reasonably busy as many people use these services to transport their boats in or out of the sea. This was the start of the transport business. Learn more about salary calculation Visit us.

If you’re still not comfortable getting on a plane or cruise ship (or paying the high prices), it might be time for a Florida vacation.

Two recently updated travel diaries — Visit a small town in Florida and 100 things to do in Tampa Bay before you die – offer great ideas for city breaks and day trips, so you can enjoy living in a place where tourists flock. Most of their suggestions eschew the big, well-known attractions, offering local gems off the beaten path.

Travel guides can have a short shelf life, so it’s worth having both books revisit and update their advice and travel tips. Tampa native Bruce Hunt recently published his fourth edition of small town in floridaoffering succinct profiles and restaurant and shopping recommendations for “79 of Florida’s Most Interesting Small Towns.”

Kristen Hare, journalist at the Poynter Institute and contributor to the Tampa Bay Weather, just released the third edition of its guide to living like a tourist in the Tampa Bay area. The premise is a bucket list idea that has taken on greater resonance for it during the pandemic.

“Although this nod to the to-do list seemed cute to me with the first and second editions, during the pandemic it took on a new sense of urgency for me,” Hare said. “Life is short. Nothing is guaranteed. How we spend our time – and who we spend it with – is up to us.

Some of the authors’ suggestions coincide. Consider small town in floridaThe suggestion to find the little Ozona.

“Palm Harbor grew around Ozona, but the little village still manages to retain its quiet, quirky charm,” Hunt writes. You’ll find a scenic section of the Pinellas Trail bicycle overpass and great food at Ozona Pig and Molly Goodhead’s Raw Bar, housed in a circa 1919 house. For shopping, Antiques and Uniques next to Ozona Pig “has a treasure trove of vintage collectibles”.

As with most small towns in Hunt’s book, it only takes an afternoon to see its sights. But Ozona is close to some of Hare’s day trip suggestions. In nearby Tarpon Springs, the influence of its Greek immigrants and sponge divers makes a visit “more like an international adventure,” Hare writes. Don’t miss the Spongeorama Sponge Factory for shopping and its setting for historical films, take a boat ride on the St. Nicholas Boat Line, and enjoy excellent Greek cuisine at Mykonos Restaurant.

100 things to do in Tampa Bay

Other suggestions from Hare’s book that can be turned into a stay of a few days include:

Land of lakes: Head to the Polk County town for lunch at the carpentry food hall with a range of vendors and sit on the terrace overlooking a beautiful lake. Take a tour of South Florida College, the only campus architect designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Shopping near Kentucky Avenue is full of fun shops like Scout and Tag and the Lloyds of Lakeland antique store. There are also excellent restaurants throughout Kentucky.

Williston: Located about 30 miles northwest of Ocala, it’s horse country with rolling hills. “It should be on anyone’s to-do list to snorkel or scuba dive at Devil’s Den, a natural spring inside a cave,” Hare said. . Advance reservations are required to swim in the 72 degree blue water. Make your reservations at 352-528-3344 or devilsden.com. Cedar Lake Woods and Gardens, on the same street as Devil’s Den, is a beautiful botanical garden with waterfalls, swans, and different levels to wander around ancient live oaks and lush gardens.

North Port: Soak in the Mineral Hot Springs, 12200 San Servando Ave., about an hour south of Tampa. “It’s a hoot. This is old Florida at its oldest,” Hare said. At 85 degrees, the water smells a bit funky from the sulfur, and Hare recommends bringing a pool noodle to float around in the deeper sections — it’s supposed to be good for the skin. “It’s like a spa day in Florida.”

Visit a small town in Florida

Hunt is now in its fourth edition of Visit a small town in Floridawhich he first produced in 1997 as “the antithesis of the Disney Guide”.

From North Florida to the Florida Keys, it focuses on cities with fewer than 15,000 residents. He enjoys finding family restaurants, historic general stores, and old hotels still in operation that offer a window into Florida history.

A good example is Evinston. Take a road trip to visit Cross Creek, about 22 miles south of Gainesville, which today is still as rural and scenic as when author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings captured it in Yearling and Cross the creek. Re-read classic books and visit the Rawlings house as she left it. Then do some antique shopping in the nearby town of Micanopy, where there are historic homes and a cemetery worth visiting.

Hunt then suggests that you circle Orange Lake across Cross Creek to find the small village of Evinston. “There’s nothing there except the Wood and Swink general store. But it’s been around since 1882, and it’s really cool and it’s still a working general store,” Hunt said.

Other Suggestions:

Apalachicola: He likes the Panhandle and suggests Apalachicola, long known as the oyster capital of Florida (though oyster harvesting in Apalachicola Bay is currently suspended until 2025). Maybe spend a few days renting a house on nearby St. George Island with its pretty beaches. . “It’s very laid back with good food and antique shopping. And they have done a very good job of retaining the historic feel of downtown Apalachicola.

City of Dade: The eastern county town of Pasco is becoming a foodie destination. Besides the famous Lunch on Limoges – Florida Cracker Kitchen, there is local staple Olga’s Bakery and Deli, as well as Green Door on 8th and Steph’s Southern Soul Restaurant. In addition to its well-known antique shops, Dade City has many gastronomic gems to explore, Hunt said.

The Apalachicola Pier is a scenic, quiet spot often overlooked by Florida visitors drawn to the state's much larger tourist spots.  The extra trip is well worth it for anyone who wants to experience Florida as it was before all the freeways, skyscrapers, and high-end development.

Cedar Key: About a two-hour drive north of Tampa Bay, there are great galleries, restaurants like Tony’s Seafood and Steamers Clam Bar, and rustic settings in which to relax and go fishing or kayaking. The historic Island Hotel has been restored to its former glory and its dining room is known for its Florida-origin seafood dishes.
