Project Brief


proposed environmental studies center at Hillsboro Pineland Natural Area as it would face SR 7 by Joe Minicozzi.
Location: Coconut Creek, Coral Springs, and Parkland, Broward County, Florida
Date:  December 3, 2005

The SR 7 - Coconut Creek/Coral Springs/Parkland Charrette is part of a series of nine charrettes focused on the entire 25.6 mile section of the SR 7/U.S. 441 in Broward County. The series’ main goals are to create a plan for redevelopment and to accommodate future mass transit. The SR 7/U.S. 441 Collaborative was the impetus of this planning effort, and its membership includes the fourteen local governments that span the Broward County section of SR 7 and ex-officio members. The collaborative is facilitated by the staff of the South Florida Regional Planning Council.

The SR 7 - Miramar/West Park Charrette looks at the redevelopment of SR 7 between the Hillsboro Canal and Sample and is the northern most segment of SR 7 in Broward County. The charrette report includes the following features:

    1. Give SR 7 the character of a parkway interrupted by beautiful mixed-use town and neighborhood centers

SR 7 - Coconut Creek-Coral Springs-Parkland Master Plan.
    2. SR 7 a maximum of six lanes
    3. Maintain the interconnectivity of streets throughout the study area
    4. Design SR 7 as a connector instead of a divider of neighborhoods
    5. No big-box retail surrounded by seas of parking
    6. Enhance public access and identity of the City of Parkland by providing a public building or museum
    7. Enhance public access to natural parks and preserves
    8. Improve SR 7 and Sawgrass Expressway drainage areas by converting them to parks
    9. Replace Sample Road flyover with an at-grade intersection
