Given the plans for the redevelopment of the Inlet Village area and the A1A roadway project, what changes are planned for how public safety will be addressed?
The design for the A1A corridor took into account many of the concerns raised by the residents and businesses who live, do business in and frequent the area. To address pedestrian safety, street lights and continuous sidewalks will be added to both sides of the roadway, and pedestrian crosswalks will be added at high-use intersections. Bike lanes will also be added on both sides of the roadway providing a designated lane for the cyclists. Additionally, the speed limit of the roadway has been reduced from 35 mph to 30 mph due to the increase in both pedestrian and bicycle traffic in the area.

As the area continues to redevelop and activity continues to increase, the Town is also giving thoughtful consideration to the issue of policing. The Town anticipates using a combination of sworn officers, non-sworn public safety staff and technology to enhance its ability to address public safety and quality of life issues, and will be working in the next few months to formalize these programs and strategies. Coverage in the Inlet Village district will be slowly increased during the upcoming 2013/2014 season, then be fully implemented the following season (2014/2015).
