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.
