Woodland Trails PSL neighborhood officially named through the NICE Program
PSL – The second neighborhood to be named through the City’s new Neighborhood Improvement and Community Engagement (NICE) program will be called “Woodland Trails.” The Woodland Trails neighborhood was temporarily referred to as “Edinburgh Park” by some residents before the official naming.
Name officially selected by majority of ballots received.
The City worked with property owners in the community that is south of Paar Drive, north of the C-23 Canal, east of Interstate 95 and west of Port St. Lucie Boulevard to come up with an official name for the neighborhood. The name was officially selected by majority from ballots received. The City received 86 ballots back. Woodland Trails received 52 votes and Edinburgh Park received 34 votes.
“This is an exciting time, not only for the City as we officially name our second neighborhood, but also for the residents who reside in Woodland Trails,” said Vice Mayor Shannon Martin. “I am so proud of the progress we are making in our efforts to give individual neighborhoods their own identity, and the pride of belonging for so many residents that will come with the evolution of this program.”
City staff next will work with residents in Woodland Trails who expressed interest in creating a Civic Association. The City desires to engage in long-term planning with its civic associations. This will allow easier communication to a larger audience and provide functional improvements that each community needs.
Public information meeting
Woodland Trails residents are invited to attend a public information meeting regarding their community. This will be on Nov. 6 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at City Hall, 121 SW Port St. Lucie Blvd. Staff will discuss traffic calming proposals in the community.
