Downtown Boca Raton Advisory panel to finalize wishlist for the downtown district

More parking. Brighter lighting. Better signs. A way to get around without a car.  The 12-member Downtown Boca Raton Advisory Committee met Wednesday to finalize their wish list.

They’ll present their entire findings Monday before the Community Redevelopment Agency that regulates the downtown. [City council sits as the CRA wearing different hats.]   

“We are asking for a status report and guidance on priorities, so we can prioritize,” member Harvey Wachman explained.

Reminder: In late 2018, the city allowed private parking garage permits. Wayfinding signs designs are being considered. A request for proposals from shuttle companies is expected to go out shortly.  See if you agree with the downtown committee’s priorities.

Do you have anything else on your own wish list you want the city to know?
