Time: 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Purpose:
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District Seven, is conducting a public hearing on the Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for the Westshore Regional Multimodal Center (WRMC) in the Westshore Business District in Tampa. This public hearing is held to allow interested persons the opportunity to provide comments concerning the location, conceptual design, and social, economic, and environmental effects of the proposed WRMC. The “Westshore Multimodal Study and Strategic Transportation Plan”, completed in February 2012, identified four viable site locations (A, C, D, and S).  This PD&E Study has identified Site C, the redevelopment of a strip of parcels north of I-275 between Trask Street and Manhattan Avenue, as the recommended site for the WRMC. The study will determine the configuration, benefits, costs, and impacts of developing and operating a regional multimodal center at this location. Additional information may be found at the study website: www.fdotd7studies.com.

BACKGROUND: Earlier this spring, The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) received an unsolicited proposal for the leasing of rights-of-way and other real property owned by FDOT, the Orlando Orange County Expressway Authority (OOCEA), Orange County, the City of Orlando, and the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA), for the purposes of constructing and operating a fixed guideway transportation system between Orlando International Airport and the Orange County Convention Center in the International Drive area of Orange County. FDOT subsequently issued a Request For Proposals asking potential vendors to submit proposals for a similar privately funded transportation project in that corridor.  FDOT District 5 deferred the selection of the recommended alternative for the Orlando International Airport (OIA) Connector Refresh Alternatives Analysis to be able to assess the potential impacts from the proposals on the viable alternatives being considered. That evaluation is now completed and the alternatives analysis has resumed.

CarFit Senior Driver Safety Event
District: Four
Meeting Type: Workshop
Date: Friday, September 12, 2014
Time: 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
Location Name: NE Focal Point Senior Center
Street Address: 227 NW 2nd Street
City: Deerfield Beach, FL
Directions: Event website
Purpose:
 
CarFit is an educational program that offers older adults the opportunity to check how well their personal vehicles "fit" them.
 
The CarFit program also provides information and materials on community-specific resources that could enhance their safety as drivers, and/or increase their mobility in the community.
 
Older drivers are often the safest drivers in that they are more likely to wear their seatbelts, and less likely to speed or drink and drive. However, older drivers are more likely to be killed or seriously injured when a crash does occur due to the greater fragility of their aging bodies.
 
Driver safety programs improve adult driver safety by addressing cognitive abilities and skills, however, older drivers can also improve their safety by ensuring their cars are properly adjusted for them. A proper fit in one's car can greatly increase not only the driver's safety but also the safety of others.
 
At a CarFit event, a team of trained technicians and/or health professionals work with each participant to ensure they "fit" their vehicle properly for maximum comfort and safety. A CarFit check takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.

CarFit Senior Driver Safety Event
District: Four
Meeting Type: Workshop
Date: Friday, September 19, 2014
Time: 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
Location Name: Broward Health (General) Medical Center
Street Address: 1600 S. Andrews Ave
City: Fort Lauderdale
Directions: Event Website
Purpose:

CarFit is an educational program created by the American Society on Aging, and developed in collaboration with AARP, AAA and the American Occupational Therapy Association.  The goals of this community-based program are three-fold:
o    Help older drivers improve the “fit” of their vehicles for   safety and comfort.
o    Promote conversations among older adults and families about driving safety and the continued need for mobility options to keep people participating in the life of their communities.
o    Link adults with relevant local resources that can help ensure they drive safely longer.
CarFit uses a trained team of volunteers, including an occupational therapist, to assist senior drivers with such items as:
o    A clear line of sight over the steering wheel;
o    Adequate space between the front airbag/steering wheel and the driver’s breastbone; properly adjusted head;
o    Proper positioning of gas and brake pedals;
o    Proper safety belt use and fit, and safe positioning of mirrors to minimize blind spots.
The 30 minute intervention not only provides an opportunity to open a positive, non-threatening conversation about driver safety, but it also provides specific community resources to help older drivers stay healthy and continue to drive for as long as safely possible.
 
If you are a trained technician and would like to volunteers please contact Joanne Puia at (954) 468-5266 or Jpuia@browardhealth.org.
