What’s Happening On Gregory Road? Find Out This Thursday…

Meeting reminder

From the Southend Neighborhood Association:

Thursday July 9th at 6:30 pm., please join SENA and the City of West Palm Beach Public Works Department to discuss an important project set on Gregory Road. The City and FPL will be making a powerpoint presentation with an open discussion to address FPL’s current project. FPL is set to replace all the old wood poles with concrete poles.

The City has asked SENA to facilitate communication between our members, FPL and the City. The specific area that is affected is Gregory Road between Olive Ave. and Dixie Highway. The discussion will focus on placement options, back of sidewalk or within the swale area.

Even if you do not live on Gregory, we are all neighbors and share in what happens in our community. We would like to make sure we have a large turnout. City is providing refreshments.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Best regards,
Your South End Neighbors
