Stop! A new four-way stop is on Tampa Avenue and Nassau Street. The stop will facilitate safer traffic flow at an intersection that serves a large church, assisted care living facility and restaurant, as well as general downtown traffic.



Beachgoers, please help these little ones get a start. The city recently planted indiginous beach plantings to help hold the sand in place. Please do not walk on the plants because they are vulnerable until established. The area planted is south of the public beach from Granada Avenue to Alhambra Road. Watch where you walk and try to stay in the designated paths.
