Children at Play (C.A.P.A)
C.A.P.A. signs can be purchased at the Youth Center for only $6.50.
Communities across the nation have grappled with traffic and speed issues along neighborhood streets in an effort to preserve and enhance quality of life and also protect those “littlest citizens” that are busy at play in their front yards. Children awareness (C.A.P.A.) is a program offered by the City of Coral Gables to allow parents and/or caregivers the ability to purchase and place authorized city-issued signs in the swale area of their property while children are actively playing in the front yard.
Coral Gables residents may purchase two “Children At Play” signs by visiting the Coral Gables War Memorial Youth Center at 405 University Drive, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m., and Saturday, 8:00 a.m. - 12 p.m. The cost of the signs is $6.50/per sign. Each city-issued sign is numbered for verification purposes.
