Volunteer efforts help Colee Hammock improve entryway
Three years of effort by residents of the Colee Hammock neighborhood will pay off in April when three entryway signs, approved by the Fort Lauderdale City Commission near the end of last year, will finally be put in place.
“We want everyone to know that Colee Hammock is first and foremost a residential neighborhood,” said Jerry Jordan, former president of the Fort Lauderdale neighborhood's association. “We’ve been fighting battles to preserve our identity for years.
Green Construction Technologies Inc. of Wilton Manors was awarded the $24,040 contract after submitting the only bid last July.
Points accumulated under such programs as Citizens Volunteer Corps and Community Area Planning added up to $18,000 of the $24,040 estimate.
The signs will be placed at three locations: the corner of Southeast 15th Avenue and Broward Boulevard; in front of Timeless Beauty Aesthetic on Southeast 12th Avenue and Broward Boulevard; and on Southeast 17th Avenue and Las Olas Boulevard.
