Healthy Community Zone Planning 



The Healthy Community Zone (HCZ) initiative is a combined effort of agencies, partners, residents, and resources that are dedicated to improving the health of a community. A Community Action Plan (CAP) was developed to address key issues identified within the HCZ. The overall aim is to create a built environment that supports access to all modes of transportation (walking, biking, and transit) and increases healthy lifestyles through physical activity. The Healthy Community Zone has four key Strategies to achieving its goal: 
 
  • Strategy 1: Support for a clean physical environment, including enhance facilities to encourage convenient and pleasant experiences while riding and waiting for transit.
  • Strategy 2: Implement a Safe Routes to School Program
  • Strategy 3: Engage resident leadership to advance a complete streets plan and implementation within the Hallandale Beach Healthy Community Zone.
  • Strategy 4: Enhancement of the Physical Environment by eliminating blight and reducing the number of vacant lots.

Safe Routes to School Planning 



One of the focus areas is creating healthy and safe built environment with a major component concentrated on promoting active transportation. A Safe Routes to School Program aligns with improving health by creating a safe environment around schools and promoting the opportunities to walk or bike to school. The goal of this Safe Routes to School Plan is to provide a framework to enhance opportunities for students that live within the Healthy Community Zone to be able to walk or bike to school. The plan is focused on the 5 E’s: Education, Encouragement, Enforcement, Engineering, and Evaluation. A list of partnering schools include: 
 
  • Hallandale Magnet High School
  • Colbert Museum Magnet
  • Hallandale Elementary 
  • Lake Forest Elementary 
  • Watkins Elementary
  • McNicol Middle School

As envisioned for this effort the goals of the project are to: 

  • Preserve and maintain the transportation system
  • in Hallandale Beach
  • Promote safe and secure multi-modal transportation

Transportation Master Plan

 

In addition to the Citywide Master Plan, the City has hired the consulting firm HDR to prepare a Transportation Master Plan for Hallandale Beach. This plan will identify recommended transportation improvements to address the City’s concerns and needs regarding existing and future traffic conditions through 2030.

The Transportation Master Plan will include the development of a traffic cost model to determine project impacts and the associated costs of accommodating traffic from the development activity in the City. The goals of the Master Plan will be to:

  • Quantify the transportation impact and needs of future development and redevelopment activity in the City for Year 2015 and 2030
  • Identify and prioritize appropriate facility improvements and mitigation strategies to ensure adequate mobility in the future
  • Estimate the costs of recommended transportation improvements and identify the appropriate share from new developments/redevelopments

The Citywide Transportation Master Plan was adopted by the City Commission at a Special Meeting/Workshop on June 9, 2009.

Transportation Development Review



Transportation Design Considerations for Development Review Committee (DRC)

 
The City is committed to implementing multi-modal improvements through the Development Review process. Applicants should consider improvements to the pedestrian realm, such as, wider sidewalks, shade trees, on-street parking, bike lanes, bicycle parking, motorcycle parking, public seating and public art. In addition, sustainable improvements, such as, electric charging stations, solar powered lighting, rain gardens and permeable pavers are encouraged with all new development.

Current Development Traffic Impact Studies

 
A Traffic Study or Traffic Statement pursuant to Section 32-884 of the City’s Zoning and Land Development Code may be required for new development or changes in use. Major Development projects are required to mitigate traffic impacts and pay traffic mitigation fees pursuant to Section 32-794 as required by the City Engineer.
