How the street closures came to be. by Steve Jacobson In the 90's all the north-south avenues and cross-streets were open to the trafc from Sunrise Boulevard to NE 13 Street. So many cars cut through the neighborhood day and night looking for a short cut. Lake Ridge also had a really bad drug and prostitution problem. We had street walkers day and night. The police would make arrests and they would be back on the street in no time. Since the streets were open to trafc, the customers for the drug dealers and prostitutes could get· away easily. We also had a lot of old apartment buildings that were being rented to the drug dealers and prostitutes by landlords from out of state. They didn't care about the problems we had. The Travelodge Motel at Sunrise Boulevard and NE 13th Avenue was a huge problem. One of the night clerks was shot and killed. It was so bad. The police tried and tried to help but the law made it hard to make progress. It was really hard to make changes for the good. The Lake Ridge Civic Assn. decided to ght back. Many anti-drug marches were organized. We would walk through the neighborhood with signs and make noise to let the people know that we were watching. Many meetings, spaghetti dinners and street events held for years brought people out. We made progress, but we still had lots of problems with trafc, drugs and prostitution. Our former President Rixon Rafter was very active at Little Libraries & More… Continues on page 4 Lake Ridge Green Your Routine Update - The Little Libraries & More… by Juliette Rocque By now many of you have heard the phrase Little Free Library. Some may even know what they are, especially if you read the Fall 2020 edition of the Lake Ridge News. Most recently a slew of Little Libraries “popped” up on 13th Street. They are part of the 2nd Annual Art 13 Fair competi-tion now on display. Lake Ridge resident and artist, Lee Brock, won 4th place in the contest. Congratulations Lee! Lake Ridge currently has a Little Library located at 1270 NE 17 Terrace. Lake Ridge resident, Jessica McBride installed this one a few years ago. So, to recap, a Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange, basically a wooden box of books! Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share. In fact, most Little Free Libraries are placed in front yards, parks, gardens, and easily accessible locations. The Libraries can withstand weather of all kinds and hold 20-100 books. Some Libraries are in coffee shops, in or near restaurants and community centers. As of March 2020, there are more than 100,000 registered Little Free Libraries in all 50 states and 108 countries. Little Free Library maintains a map of where you can nd little libraries in the US and around the world. Click HERE to Check it out.

Page 4– Spring 2021 Lake Ridge News CLICK HERE TO JOIN THE LRCA TODAY! City Hall. Somehow the City and Rixon came up with the idea of street closures from NE 18 Avenue to Powerline Road. There was much heated discussion about the idea, but more were in favor than against the closures. People don't like their trafc patterns disturbed. Many meetings at City Hall were attended by LRCA neighbors wearing red t-shirts. The Commissioners approved the idea. First, there were plastic stakes installed at various intersection to steer trafc out of the neighborhood. Then the City placed huge sand-lled barrels as a deterrent. Finally, the permanent closures that we have today were installed. It took 3-4 years to get the nal closures. The LRCA is responsible for their upkeep, not the City. Volunteers regularly plant, weed, clean debris and re-mulch. After the streets were closed off to Sunrise Boulevard trafc, Lake Ridge became a safer place to live. The trafc and crime diminished which then attracted de-velopers. They bought and demolished the old run-down places and built townhouses. Villa Medici was the rst. Now Satori and many more continue to be built. The street closures and LRCA have changed the area from troubled to desirable, making it safer for all and increasing property values. I've lived in Lake Ridge for 40 years and we now have a much safer and quieter place to live all because of the Civic Association's hard work and the dedication and perseverance of some very active members. Did you know?- Continued from page 1On Saturday, April 24th, the Lake Ridge Civic Association in conjunction with the City of Fort Lauderdale Neighbor Support will be installing not one, but three Little Free Libraries! What a perfect opportunity to celebrate and celebrate we will. We will be on the corner of 14th Avenue & 11th Street, right behind Publix So, come out and join us from 10 am to 1 pm. City ofcials will be stopping by for a Ribbon Cutting at 11 am. There will be pizza, a treasure hunt, kids will be painting Little Libraries, a hula-hoop contest and more. Lake Ridge artist Lee Brock has created a “paint by number” template to help the children with painting Little Libraries. You can also expect a visit from Fort Lauderdale Police Mounted and Canine Unit. Additionally, the City of Fort Lauderdale’s Transportation and Mobility Department will join us to Little Libraries ... Continued from page 1share hand-outs on upcoming trafc calming planned for Lake Ridge as well as some giveaways. This event will be great for children and adults alike. The perfect opportunity to reconnect with your neighbors and get some fresh air. We’ve been busy, but we’re not nished yet. On December 5th, February 27th & March 27th we donned our comfy clothes and set out to clean-up! With the help of the James Club, we weeded, raked, chopped, and mulched. Collected bottles and cans for recycling and picked up and bagged loads of trash. Click on the image to take a look at what all we did!

March 2021 We've made some amazing progress over the last month in investigating the feasibility of building an underground tunnel for commuter rail service into downtown. This represents an exciting possibility that could dramatically reshape the future of downtown Fort Lauderdale as well as resolve the long-standing trafc problems. And even more importantly, there is the possibility that the project could be done for a substantially lower cost than imagined. In mid-February, I led a delegation of city, county, and state ofcials to visit the latest venture of business entrepreneur Elon Musk. Musk rst built his reputation around developing the Tesla electric car and then aerospace transportation with SpaceX. Now, he is looking at ways to reduce trafc congestion by offering new low-cost tunneling construction technology with The Boring Co. Our delegation flew west. First, to Las Vegas, to view Boring's premiere project, a two-mile state-of-the-art loop under their Convention Center. Then to Haw-thorne, CA, to visit the company's headquarters and experience their rst operable test tunnel. In Las Vegas, we met with the head of the city's Public Works Department, the CEO of the region's tourism bureau, and Boring Co. executives. All around, we received positive reports on the role that the Boring Co. has played in bringing Las Vegas transit into the future. Vegas ofcials have been so impressed by the in genuity and cost of this technology that they are now working with Musk to build an entire underground transit system that will run the length of the Vegas strip, all the way from the old downtown to their international airport. They also addressed critical questions about these tunneling capabilities. For instance, the water table in Vegas around the convention center is very near the surface, so most of the work was done through water - very similar to the circumstances we would face with a train tunnel through downtown Fort Lauderdale. Next, we traveled to the Boring Co.'s California headquarters to experience the prototype tunnel used for Las Vegas. We experienced being launched through the tunnel in a Tesla vehicle at roughly 155mph. We also met with Musk's chief geologist and viewed the state-of-the-art boring device that tunnels through the earth. Each member of our delegation came home with excitement around this new technology and what it could mean for the future of transportation in our region. In early March, city ofcials and community stakeholders joined me in welcoming principal members of the Boring Company to Fort Lauderdale to provide them with an in-depth look at our city. The day began at the Brightline station, where we kicked off discussions about the possibility of tunneling the commuter rail service from the Brightline station downtown to the beach. We envision that this terminal, off of Broward Boulevard, could be a key connector for underground transport, not just between the beach and downtown but also from downtown to the airport and seaport. We continued the delegation's tour through the entertainment district, Las Olas Boulevard, and the barrier island. A solution to the outstanding trafc congestion from the boulevard to the beach could lay in the opportunity to tunnel. We also raised questions to their team about the possibilities of tunneling to replace aging neighborhood bridges. We observed Port Everglades and the convention center from a distance to demonstrate how tunneling could connect these two hubs to the international airport. At our next stop, we examined the trafc of one of Florida's busiest intersections and perhaps our most infamous, Sunrise Boulevard and Federal Highway. The Florida Department of Transportation is currently drafting a plan to address the unique congestion plaguing the intersection. They propose the construction of an east-to-north overpass along with a roundabout. Under this scenario, the project would allow motorists headed north on Federal Highway to drive above the trafc that runs to and from the beach. A possible solution to Page 7– Spring 2021 Lake Ridge News For advertising info call 954-560-8649 CLICK HERE TO JOIN THE LRCA TODAY! From the Desk of Dean Trantalis Continues on page 8

Page 8– Spring 2021 Lake Ridge News CLICK HERE TO JOIN THE LRCA TODAY! this intricate design may be to tunnel rather than to build an imposing bridge. Remember: these conversations initially began be-cause Brightline will relaunch their tri-county commuter service later this year and is set to expand operations up and down the east coast of the state. The benets of efcient commuter rail could nally free up our roadways. But, add too many trains above ground in Fort Lauderdale, and you create a new set of problems. Bridges would be down more frequently, critically impeding maritime trafc flow, meaning more delays at railway crossings as more trains would be added to the daily schedules. From the Desk of Dean Trantalis Continued from page 7 Tunnels make sense for the longevity of Fort Lauderdale. Musk's cutting-edge technology exists, it is already being taken advantage of across the country, and it's shaping the way we look at transportation infrastructure in America. I am hopeful that our region will come together and harness this technology to bet-ter all of us. Our talks with The Boring Company continue. Yours, Dean

I am pleased to hear that many residents throughout the City have been able to secure their vaccinations. We are moving forward, but please continue to socially distance, wear a mask and remain diligent so we can continue to return to a more normal existence. Bahia Mar: After requesting that the City Commission be given an update and the ability to discuss our most important public land, I was pleased that last week the Commission deliberated on the future of the City-owned Bahia Mar site. The peninsula is home to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and Bahia Mar-Double Tree by Hilton Hotel, located across the street from the Central Beach Basketball Courts on Fort Lauderdale Beach. For those of you who might not know, the prior City Commission in December of 2017 approved a new site plan with our tenant Rahn Bahia Mar but kept the 1995 lease intact. The basis for our discussion on March 16 was a tenant-proposed Amended Master Lease and Phased Lease Agreement predicated mainly on changing the use of the approved 650 multi-family rental units to condominiums. After nearly four and a half hours of tenant presentation, public comment by dozens of citizens and Commission dialogue, the Commission arrived at a consensus on the next steps: doing nothing for the remaining 41 years on the lease is not an option; no condominiums; and keep the lines of communication with the tenant open in order to ensure that the City is no longer stuck with the paltry $1.5 M annual revenue from the tenant. Renegotiating the lease paves the way for a better deal for rental income, better Boat Show partnership and possibilities, fewer buildings on the site, more open space or even the City buying out the lease. I take the tenant’s Counsel seriously when he says, “Everything is on the table.” The discussion also revealed the need for transparency and regular updates from the City Attorney and City Manager regarding major issues such as Bahia Mar and the Boat Show leases and agreements. I want to thank the many people who provided valuable and diverse input on this precious public land. The conversation was most constructive and I am pleased to serve as a liaison with the tenant in reimagining this site and ensuring that the public has abundant access and amenities while the City sees its fair share of revenue from any and all leases. Let’s get to work! District 2 Ofce Changes: Pratima Raju started as my Chief of Staff when I was rst elected in March 2018 and has been a strong advocate for all our neighborhoods throughout District 2. Her family is relocating to Seattle, Washington and she will be departing our ofce at the end of April. I cannot tell you how much I will miss Pratima and working with her every day. It has been an absolute pleasure to know her and to witness her intelligence, passion, and overall savvy. We thank her for her service to the City and wish her the best on her new adventure out West. In addition, Nancy Fry will be joining our ofce this week as the new Chief of Staff. Nancy is a "Double Cane," with a bachelor's degree in Music Business and a master's degree in Arts Presenting from the University of Miami. She began her career working at various theaters and concert halls, including our own Broward Center for the Performing Arts. After spending a few years in Orlando, she moved back to Broward County and focused on non-prot volunteer work and campaign consulting. We are excited to have her join the District 2 Team! She can be reached at nfry@fortlauderdale.gov. Please join Celia and me in welcoming Nancy. CLICK HERE TO JOIN THE LRCA TODAY!

The 4th monument is planned at the corner of 18th Avenue and 13th Street where Galleria Villages are under construction. The property’s fencing is now in place and, if you drive by, you can clearly see where the monument will be installed. The monument will be permitted, fabricated & installed once construction is completed and closings are underway. The target date for completion of the 4th monument is before year-end 2021. The Developer will pay for half the monument and Lake Ridge NCIP grant funds will cover half the cost. Trafc Calming Stop Bars, Trafc Signs etc. In May 2020, your Civic Association conducted an audit of all Lake Ridge streets and submitted it to the City’s Transportation and Mobility Department (TAM). The audit included the maintenance required for Stop Bars as well as a few STOP Signs, One Way Signs and Street Signs. While this project was scheduled for completion months ago, it is still ongoing. Many of the Stop Bars and yellow lines have now been repainted. A missing STOP Sign (Alley between NE 8th and NE 9th Avenues) and a missing ONE-WAY sign (Alley off Flagler between NE 7th & NE 8th Avenue) are now in place. Also, the STOP sign between NE 9th Ave and NE 10th Avenue has now been installed. The Stop Bars and yellow lines on 11th Street and 12th Street at the entries to NE 15th Avenue are the county, not the city’s responsibility. Additionally, all the entry ways from Lake Ridge onto 13th Street are also the County’s responsibility. Thus, the 4 entry points at 11th & 12th Streets have been turned over to the County to be repainted as well as the entries onto 13th Street that need maintenance. We do not know the county’s schedule for repainting these. We have asked TAM to try to have the County coordinate with the city to coincide with the painting and road diet on 15th Avenue. (an update – link – is on our website) Painting & Road Diet on 15th Avenue • Short Term initiative: As reported in the Summer 2020 issue MPO presented a plan to improve trafc and safety on 15th Avenue by adding bike lanes, reducing trafc lanes and painting 15th Avenue between 11th Street and 13th Street. Refer to the detailed presentation on LakeRidgeCivic.org. TAM reviewed preliminary designs with the Board in early April. TAM will share a detailed review with the General Membership at our June 17, 2021 General Meeting (via Zoom). • Long Term initiative: In November, the City Commission approved a grant request (funds still must be approved by the Federal government) for the long-term Complete Streets improvement project along 15th Avenue. This portion is a multi-year project- 5 - 8 years out. Speed Bumps Speed cushions strategically placed along 11th Street (west and east) and on certain North South Streets in the neighborhood were part of the Master Mobility plan to help calm Lake Ridge Trafc. This was approved in June 2020 and has been under discussion since 2014. The estimated cost of the speed cushions has come signicantly higher than originally budgeted. Your LRCA Board has decided to hold off on speed cushions until we know the budget for 15th Avenue painting – since that is priority #1. Trafc Circle on 10th Avenue We have some preliminary cost estimates on the mini-Trafc Circle at NE 10th Avenue and NE 11th Street. This portion of trafc calming also remains on hold while we address Priority #1 – Painting & road diet on 15th Avenue. Villa Medici Gates As of early April 2021, the two Villa Medici gate permits remain On Hold. While revised plans have not been submitted yet; Villa Medici has been in discussion with the Building Department regarding

Reprinted from Defenders of Wildlife Once a special treat reserved for children’s birthdays, these days balloons mark many different occasions calling for symbols of joy or release. But for wildlife, balloons often mean nothing but trouble, particularly when set free. “I can’t tell you how often I pull balloons out of trees and bushes and from gutters just in my neighborhood,” says Christine from Union County, New Jersey (a Defenders supporter who did not want her full name published). “Almost every time I’m outside I nd a balloon.” And it pains her since she knows how balloons can harm wildlife. Balloons rank as one of the top three deadliest forms of marine litter. That’s because deflated or burst balloons often make it to the ocean where they look like squid, jellysh and other prey that marine life—particularly sea turtles and seabirds—pursue. Once ingested and lodged in the throat or intestines, the soft material can’t be expelled, and the animal chokes or slowly starves to death. In a study for the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, researchers monitoring ve remote beaches with important sea turtle and bird nesting areas recorded 11,441 pieces of balloon debris from 2013 to 2017. The ndings suggested mass latex balloon releases as a major source, but a large percentage of deflated foil balloons with messaging for special events like Mother’s Day and birthdays was also found, showing “the actions of individuals may also contribute signicantly.” Deflated balloons also trail ribbons made from hard-to-break plastic that can become wrapped around animals as they swim, hindering their movement and ability to feed. And it’s not just a coastal issue. Balloons can travel vast distances and have been tracked from Japan to Los Angeles (5,300 miles) and from Kansas to the Chesapeake Bay (1,200 miles), for example. Those that don’t make it to the ocean can get snagged in tree branches, where their ribbons can entangle owls and other birds, injuring their wings or strangling them to death. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service even cites balloons as a threat to the recovery of desert tortoises in the Mojave Desert. The balloon industry claims latex types, which contains plasticizers, are natural and will decompose in about ve years. But as Christine points out, if true, they can still do a lot of damage in the interim. Foil balloons, made from nylon, polyethylene and metallic materials, never biodegrade. “Education goes a long way in this particular in-stance,” says Christine. “If people had any idea the impact balloons have on wildlife, I think a lot of them would nd an alternative to use for their celebrations.” —Heidi Ridgley Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response Program/CC BY 2.0

Regarding the two Ordinances (No. C-02-26 & C-02-27) to vacate NE 17th Way and NE 17th Terrace, no certicates have been led in the Public Records by a City Engineer certifying that all conditions of Ordi-nance No. C-02-26 and Ordinance No. C-02-27 have been met. Thus, NE 17th Way and NE 17th Terrace are not vacated and remain public rights of way. A Pedestrian and Non-Motorized Vehicle easement is a condition of each ordinance (for 17th Way & for 17th Terrace.) Thus, access via a Pedestrian gate or opening is required at 17th Terrace and at 17th Way – for pedestrians, strollers, bicyclists. Sewerage Project Update As part of the City of Fort Lauderdale’s upgrade of the sewerage system, the city’s contractor, CES Construction, will replace a valve at the corner of 11th Street and 14th Avenue, requiring a trafc detour and some inconveniences for about 2 weeks in early April. Residents should be aware there will be two additional days of work at a later to repair the road and a detour will again be required.
