Palm Beach Gardens residents in the Shady Lakes neighborhood don’t want to see a road cut through their neighborhood, and they’ve told officials as much during several public meetings.
But city officials say safety concerns leave them with no choice but to extend Shady Lakes Drive to 117th Court North. They hired an engineer, who designed preliminary plans, and a landscape architect, who developed graphics.
The plans will be on display from 6 to 7 p.m., followed by a presentation and questions from the public at 7 p.m. April 20. The special City Council meeting is at City Hall, 10500 North Military Trail. Plans are also posted on the city’s website.
City Park and the Palm Beach Gardens Tennis Center are at the end of 117th Court North, which is also home to Timber Trace Elementary School and Watson B. Duncan Middle School.
City Council set aside $2.5 million in the 2015-16 budget to connect 117th Court North to Shady Lakes Drive.
