    Central Area Neighborhood, the “2019 Best Broward Neighborhood per SFGN” (11/20/19), should anticipate another exciting year in 2020 with new private development and the completion of numerous public projects. Roadwork along NE 26th Street continues for The Complete Streets Project promising the creation of dedicated bike lanes, new sidewalks, along with replacement and upgrade of infrastructure including water supply lines. Plans for Wilton Drive include the addition of more than 50 trees and to add extensive landscaping, transforming our street into a lush, shady and comfortable boulevard. Landscaping is to be installed by late-April 2020 for the celebrations of Earth Day and Pride of the America’s 2020, when Wilton Manors expects to attract tens of thousands of local, national, and international visitors to our Island City.
