Traffic Calming MiniGrant Application
My fellow Forest Hills Neighbors, For the past 3 months your Forest Hills Neighborhood Association Board of Directors have been partnering with City Councilman Luis Viera, other Forest Hills residents, plus The Floriland Neighborhood Watch have crafted a MiniGrant Application from Hillsborough County for a street calming device, called an Intersection Painting. This type of MiniGrant sponsored traffic calming device was recently implemented in Seminole Heights. Our proposal is for this artwork to be painted at the intersection of N. Marjory Ave. And West 109th Ave. That intersection is in front of the Forest Hills Recreation Center. Although this area is 400’ East of our Neighborhood Association boundaries, we are authorized, in our Association Bylaws to engage in projects adjacent to our boundaries. Safety is one of the participation requirements noted in our Bylaws. Our Forest Hills Neighborhood residents and their children use this Rec Center and Safety is the prime motivation for this project. Additionally, in the MiniGrant Application we are proposing a Forest Hills Neighborhood gathering so residents can vote on selecting the winning artwork entry. This will be a great time for all residents to meet their neighbors and have a good time. We encourage our neighbors to bring potluck. All liquid refreshment will be available. We will have a Band for entertainment. This event will be held at The Babe Zaharias Golf Course mid March. Neighbors, this will be a great event for all of us to get together, meet each other and demonstrate how we can have a unified community engaged neighborhood. If you have questions, concerns, objections, we would like to hear from you.
Email us at Pres.email@example.com Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you at our spring event.
