Wednesday Briefing: Palm Coast Founders Day, Bill Nelson at the Pier, Caution on A1A’s Detours, Writers’ Tips

| October 19, 2016

'By the turn of the century, according to plans of the ITT Development Corporation,' a long article about Palm Coast in The New York Times read on Jan. 6, 1974, 'a city with a population equal to New Orleans--about 600,000--will be situated on the banks of the Matanzas. An international sales force of 600, working mainly in the northeastern United States, sold $65 million worth of homesites in the company's Palm Coast development in 1973. The goal is an investment of $1 billion and 600,000 residents by the year 2000.' Click here for the full article.

Closure Notice, State Road A1A in Flagler Beach: The road collapse on SRA1A (Oceanshore Boulevard) as a result of Hurricane Matthew closed a 1.4 mile stretch of highway. Traffic is being detoured one block west to South Central Avenue between South 9th Street and South 22nd Street. South Central Avenue is a residential street where children, dog walkers, pets, and bicyclists are accustomed to very light traffic and much slower speeds. The speed limit on South Central Avenue is 25 mph. The goal of this Public Service Announcement is to educate travelers that the speed limit is 25 mph and to obey the multiple stop signs along the detour route and to caution that police will actively patrol the detour area and enforce compliance with the posted speed limit and stop signs. Many businesses that were previously accessed from SR A1A have set up secondary access points off South Central Avenue. It’s important to be especially cautious when pulling in and out of these temporary driveways.

Watch every presidential debate since 1960.
