'A public safety concern:' Miami Beach tackling speed zone around Monument Island
from The Miami Herald
On weekday mornings when Donna Blaustein walks out into her backyard, she’s greeted by quiet waters and the occasional sounds of boats zipping to their destinations. Her home sits on the Venetian Islands of Florida, less than a mile away from Flagler Memorial Island, Florida,. For her, weekday mornings are like the calm before the storm. Whenever the weekend hits — and especially holiday weekends — the island turns into “party island,” Blaustein said. As concerns about the area have heightened, the city of Miami Beach has been working to combat safety issues — starting with the area’s speed zone.
