ORIGINAL POST APRIL 5:

Introducing the Inaugural SEMINOLE HEIGHTS TEACHER APPRECIATION EVENT!

Do you know we have approximately 500 teachers and other staff working at our 5 elementary schools and middle school? Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6-10, and neighbors and organizations all over Seminole Heights are coming together to say, “Seminole Heights loves our teachers!” Like the rest of us, teachers benefit when they feel appreciated and supported, and so do their students.

Will you help us support all our teachers in the Heights? You can help in TWO ways:

1. Purchase 1 or more tote bags (stuffed with goodies) for our teachers, by donating $5 per teacher: seminole-heights-united.org/src/sh-teacher-appreciation.html

2. Join us on May 2 to stuff the tote bags (6:00pm, Seminole Heights United Methodist Church): www.facebook.com/events/2285654334986339/

Each $5 you donate will purchase a canvas tote bag for 1 teacher, with pens, pencils, hand sanitizer, tissue, snacks, homemade cookies, water, and a bookmark tag. We hope to be able to deliver a tote bag to each teacher and support person at: Broward Elementary, Cleveland Elementary, Edison Elementary, Foster Elementary, Seminole Elementary, and Memorial Middle. This is about 500 people!

Along with your help and Seminole Heights United, this initiative is supported by the Hampton Terrace Community Association (HTCA), Heights Urban Core Chamber (HUCC), Old Seminole Heights Neighborhood Association (OSHNA), Seminole Heights United Methodist Church (SHUMC), South Seminole Heights Civic Association (SSHCA), and Southeast Seminole Heights Civic Association (SESHCA).

Melissa Pearson (Seminole Heights United Board Member and OSHNA Neighborhood Involvement Committee Member) and Martha McNamee (OSHNA Board Member and OSHNA Neighborhood Involvement Committee Member) are leading this neighborhood-wide initiative. You’re welcome to contact us through Facebook or either of them with any questions.

On Thursday evening, April 4th, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) held an Open House at the Seminole Heights Branch Library. Topical map overlay posters and future concept renderings were presented which illustrated comprehensive plans to address the South Seminole Heights corridor of Highland Avenue, Violet Street and Florida Avenue as well as the Heights Mobility Study. FDOT District 7 Secretary David Gwynn, along with a sizable number of engineers, traffic plan architects, and consultants were available to speak with community members one-on-one to fully explain the plans, answer questions and address concerns. Steve Swiger, Sharlene Hartford, Brian Curry and Donna Stark from the SSHCA board, OSHNA President Tim Keeports, County Commissioners Kimberly Overman and Patricia Kemp, as well as a significant number of neighbors from all of Seminole Heights attended the open house.

On the attached maps, you can see that by compressing current 3 lane traffic on Violet westbound and Highland southbound and lowering the speed limit to 35 from Violet through Highland to Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., it will open up an interior space with no traffic on the left of all lanes, with delineators the entire length of the road. No parking will be allowed in this space, providing safer pedestrian foot traffic. You can also see that the change on Violet from 2 lanes west-to-southbound to 1 lane west-to-southbound should help with traffic flow and lane incursions, especially those caused by left- or right-hand turns onto side streets from the current center lane on Highland.

One common area of concern within the plan was how the new 2 lanes of southbound Highland suddenly turns into 3 lanes at North Bay approaching MLK. FDOT representatives agreed there should be additional indicators of that lane shift sooner than North Bay Street. This part of the plan will require more study, but some of the potential solutions included making the right lane a right turn only lane, and the two left lanes would shift left to travel south on Tampa Street, while the left lane would afford left turn opportunity as well. FDOT will continue to study this section more closely for an appropriate solution.

The Heights Mobility Study maps address the addition of multiple new crosswalks on Florida Avenue north of I-275 through Tampa Heights and Seminole Heights.

Many thanks to Sharlene Hartford for the write-up and to all who attended!
