CORAL SPRINGS, FL- For years, Coral Springs has given out money to neighborhoods to add new signs, rebuild entryway signs, and make other improvements to enhance aesthetics and raise property values.
Last week, officials approved another type of project to make life better for residents: removing dog poop.
In all, city commissioners supported spending $11,047 on three projects as part of the Neighborhood Partnership Program, which requires communities to match the city’s contributions.
These projects marked a milestone: the city and the neighborhoods have now spent nearly $1 million in combined funding on 134 improvement projects through the program, Coral Springs City Manager Frank Babinec said.
“These are a great benefit to the community,” he said.
Here’s the latest projects:
- Pelican Pointe Association, a 110 single-family townhome community, is getting a new, modern sign. Total price: $7,094 (split between city and the community).
- Pine Ridge Association, a community that runs along University Drive, Riverside Drive, and Westview Drive, is getting 12 dog waste removal stations. Total price: $5,000 (split between city and the community).
- The Enclave at Wyndham Lakes, which is across from Eagle Ridge Elementary School, is getting a new modern sign. Total price: $10,000 (split between city and the community).
