LIBRARY EXPANSION PROJECT
The City of Parkland Library is currently housed in a 13,200 square foot facility at the Parkland Municipal Complex.  Work is underway to redesign the facility by adding a wing to the existing building.  The wing will add approximately 7,000 square feet to the program space.  This addition  will provide a separate space for children and families and a multi-purpose program area.  The City Commission awarded the design to the architectural firm of Williamson Dacar Associates, Inc.  Commission awarded the construction to Di Pompeo Construction Corp. Construction has commenced and is expected to be completed by winter of 2019.
        
LOXAHATCHEE ROAD IMPROVEMENTS
The reconstruction of Loxahatchee Road (Lox) is a large-scale collaboration between the City of Parkland (City), Broward County, the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).  The project will span Lox from US 441/State Road 7 (SR 7) to the water conservation area.

This project will, in effect, be a complete makeover of the road through its entire span.  Travel lanes will be widened to 11', there will be bike lanes in both directions, a sidewalk along the south side of the road, and much of the roadway will have a landscaped median that will not only provide traffic calming, but will add a Parkland feel to the road.  Additionally, there will be street lights atop cement utility poles all the way from SR 7 to the west end of Lox. The vision is to create a safe, bright aesthetically-pleasing passage from east to west in Parkland. A public hearing was held August 30, 2018.
  
The FDOT recently informed the City that the start date may be delayed due to funding changes.City staff is working with all involved agencies to ensure the project stays on track. The City has set out to coordinate with the Broward MPO and FDOT to determine the new timeline and explore any alternatives to make it as favorable to Parkland as possible. While the City does not control the administration of this project, City staff are making every effort to ensure the best plan for Parkland.
     
FIRE STATION 42 ADDITION
This project involves the expansion of Fire Station 42 approximately 300 square feet for the purpose of adding two (2) additional bunks and a bathroom. The City Commission awarded the design to Keith & Associates at the January 31, 2018 Commission meeting. The concept has been submitted and approved. Project was awarded to Tomasiou Enterprises, Inc at the January 16, 2019 Commission meeting. The contractor is expected to break ground in March.

RANCHES DRAINAGE                                                                            
This project involves providing a secondary stormwater drainage system that will allow for drainage relief during a large rainfall and storm event. This secondary system would help alleviate the current flooding condition throughout the Ranches development. The City had a survey conducted of the area and is working with NSID on a model of the drainage system.

HILLSBORO BOULEVARD TRAFFIC SIGNAL                                                                            
Broward County has performed a warrant analysis at the Hillsboro Boulevard and Nob Hill Road intersection and determined that a signal is warranted. The City has begun coordinating with the County for implementation of the signal installation. The design of the signal is underway. Design completion is scheduled for May 2019 and construction scheduled to begin early September 2019.

HOLMBERG ROAD BEAUTIFICATION/INVASIVE REMOVAL
