The City of Coral Gables Public Works Department has been working to provide traffic calming and multi-modal transportation options on Alhambra Circle between San Amaro Drive and Coral Way. A Federal grant application was awarded in 2015 for the project, and a public workshop was conducted on September 25th, 2019 at the Coral Gables Memorial Youth Center to gather input from the community to help develop the project.
Below are resources from the workshop and walk through including:
The City maintains more than 38,000 trees in its public rights of way. Working closely with our city arborist, our goal is to remove as few trees as possible. We are committed to protecting our emblematic tree canopy, which is not only beautiful, but also an important component of our resilience efforts providing practical and environmental benefits. The Alhambra Circle Complete Street project is also an important part of making Coral Gables resilient, enhancing how our residents move around our city, among other benefits. The project also includes adding trees in the traffic circles and on parts of the improved swales.
