A1A SCENIC HIGHWAY CELEBRATION


State Road A1A was designated a Scenic Highway Corridor by the State of Florida. It was a decade long project started in 1999. The grass roots committee had to document that the highway has
· resources visible from the roadway,
· that the corridor “tells a story”,
· exhibits significant, exceptional, and distinctive features,
· and provides access to various resources.
All this documentation was collected by the committee, which had many Deerfield Beach residents. They also helped gather letters of support from government and civic groups, another requirement of the application.
.
On Wednesday, November 18 the event was celebrated at the beautiful Bonnet House Museum and Gardens. State, County and Local officials were there for the ribbon cutting. Guests got to see the lovely Museum grounds, have wonderful refreshments and enjoy the Presentation of the Colors by the Fort Lauderdale Police Honor Guard.

The designation opens up opportunities for grant money for signs and landscaping.
