MPO REWIND
The BTactical Lake Ridge installation was a success! You may now see pretty birds flying along NE 15th avenue in the freshly painted protected bike lanes. The Broward MPO partnered with the City of Fort Lauderdale and the Lake Ridge Civic Association to address multimodal safety, accessibility, and connectivity. During the four-day installation, volunteers of all ages helped paint striped bike lanes, curb extensions, crosswalks, asphalt art, and plant lush landscaping to further enhance the pedestrian experience and connect the Lake Ridge Community!
Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis rolled up his sleeves to help paint the bike lane crossing at NE 11th Street and NE 15th Avenue.
Florida Senator Gary M. Farmer Jr. showing his support for BTactical with a little elbow grease and paint.
On the second day of the BTactical installation, local and state elected officials helped kick off the day with their support of the quick-build project. During the hour-long morning event Gregory Stuart, Broward MPO Executive Director, Dean Trantalis City of Fort Lauderdale Mayor, Steven Glassman City of Fort Lauderdale Commissioner, and Michael Albetta Lake Ridge Civic Association President thanked the Federal Government for funding received through the Infrastructure Investvemt Jobs Act (IIJA). The BTactical Lake Ridge installation is one of the few ways the Broward MPO is using IIJA funds to increase the quality of life for those who live, work, and play in Broward!

SMARTH GROWTH PARTNERSHIP AWARDS
The Broward MPO and the City of Deerfield Beach were awarded the Smart Growth Excellence Community Assets Award for the BTactical project: NE 3rd Avenue-Make Broward Better at Tedder. Smart Growth Partnership recognizes projects, policies, and communities that have used approaches that involve a wide variety of stakeholders and are innovative yet could be replicated elsewhere. These awards honor public-and private-sector entities that successfully use Smart Growth Principles to improve quality of life while preserving the environment and protecting public health. The MPO and the City were awarded one of three prestigious awards!
ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING STATIONS

It's Electric! The City of Deerfield Beach and Florida Power and Light (FPL) partnered to install six electric vehicle charging stations at the main beach parking lot. Charging is free to users, connected to the FPL EVoltuion research program.

VEGA DIGITAL AWARD

The Broward MPO won three national Vega Digital Awards! The Vega Digital Awards highlight the vital role of digital pioneers in an ever-changing digital landscape. The MPO was awarded the "Best E-Learning Training Module" for its PIO Playbook Training, "Best Transportation Website" for its Website refresh, and "Best Social Presence" for its Speak Up Broward social media outreach.
MOBILITY HUBS

Mobility Hubs are transit access points with frequent transit service, high development, potential, and a critical point for trip generation or transfers within the transit system. The Broward MPO is working with partner agencies and local governments to evolve the Mobility Hub concept hyper-focusing on pedestrian and bicycle connections. The MPO understands that the cookie-cutter approach is not always best, and has created a Mobility Hub Program to ensure the unique needs of Broward are met!
