Results of the survey provide the foundation of Community Health Needs Assessments, which are a collection of data used to inform communities and develop goals to improve health outcomes.

Flagler Beach Is Open For Business: A1A Construction Update:

FlaglerLive is providing weekly updates to year-long construction on and near State Road A1A in Flagler Beach as the Florida Department of Transportation rebuilds a 1.5-mile segment from South 9th Street to South 22nd Street, and builds a sea wall at the north end of town. These updates are provided through DOT or local officials. If you have any relevant information or images, you’re welcome to email them to the editor here.

February 4 Update: Construction is scheduled to begin this week week on Segments 2 and 3 of the S.R. A1A project. Work on Segment 2, from S. 22nd Street to S. 9th Street will include removal of the existing low-profile barrier wall, and construction of the temporary lime rock base on the east side of the roadway to prepare for placement of temporary asphalt. This work will require single lane closures with flagging operations during the day. Work is expected to progress from south to north. Both northbound and southbound traffic will remain on S.R. A1A. The southbound S.R. A1A detour is expected to begin in late February.

Work on Segment 3, from N. 18th Street to Osprey Drive will include removing two existing beach walkovers near N.18th Street and one walkover in front of Oceanside Condominiums as noted in the plans. Work also will include importing and placing sand in preparation for installing the auger cast pilings. Traffic will be shifted slightly to the west on S.R. A1A to accommodate the work. Drivers can expect a single lane closure with flagging operations when traffic is shifted.

The contractor has 300 days to complete the work.

U.S. 1 and Old Dixie Highway Roundabout Construction Updates:

FlaglerLive is providing weekly updates to the planned 15-month, $4.1 million construction of a roundabout at U.S. 1 and Old Dixie Highway. The project started in late January and is scheduled for completion by spring 2020.

This week southbound U.S. 1 will be reduced to one lane and be shifted slightly west onto new pavement. Southbound U.S. 1 traffic heading to Old Dixie Highway will be directed to stay on southbound U.S. 1 and make a U-turn to return to Old Dixie Highway using northbound U.S. 1. Old Dixie Highway drivers heading to southbound U.S. 1 will have to turn onto northbound U.S. 1 and make a U-turn to access southbound U.S. 1. Later this week, northbound U.S. 1 will be reduced to one lane and shifted west onto the existing southbound side of the roadway. Once this shift is made, U.S. 1 will have one lane in each direction through the project area. The speed limit will be reduced along U.S. 1 through the construction zone, and drivers are asked to be alert and use caution when traveling through the work area.

Commissioner Mullins named to national steering committee: The National Association of Counties named Commissioner Joe Mullins to serve on its Telecommunications and Technology Policy Steering Committee. “A great deal of NACo’s strength is in our committees and your active participation reflects and reinforces that strength,” NACo president Greg Cox wrote to Mullins about the nomination. “The expertise and engagement of our steering committee members is a main reason why Congress and federal agencies often look to NACo for feedback on legislative policy decisions being made in Washington D.C.” As a member of the steering committee, Mullins is required to participate in monthly conference calls and attend NACo’s Legislative Conference and its Annual Conference. This year’s initiative is “Connecting the Unconnected: Counties Linking Residents to Services.” “It is a great honor to be nominated to this important committee,” Mullins said. “I look forward to serving our local residents at the national level. We are trying to bring fiber to the area, which will attract high-paying jobs.”

‘FRACKING’ BAN WEIGHED: The House Agriculture & Natural Resources Subcommittee and the Senate Environment and Natural Resources Committee are scheduled to take up bills (PCB ANRS 19-01 and SB 314) that would prohibit the controversial oil- and gas-drilling process known as “fracking” in the state.

LOCAL TAX REFERENDUMS TARGETED: The Senate Ethics and Elections Committee will take up a bill (SB 336), filed by Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, that would require local governments to hold sales-tax referendums during general elections.

Also, the subcommittee will consider a proposal (HJR 249), filed by Rep. Brad Drake, R-Eucheeanna, that would repeal the commission, which meets every 20 years and has unique powers to place measures on the ballot. The commission drew criticism last year for “bundling” unrelated issues into single constitutional amendments. (Wednesday, 4 p.m., 404 House Office Building, the Capitol.)

‘MASS VIOLENCE’ RECORDS EXEMPTION SOUGHT: The House Oversight, Transparency & Public Management Subcommittee will consider a proposal (PCB OTM 19-08) that would expand a public-records exemption to prevent the release of photos, videos and audio recordings that show or record the killing of victims of “mass violence.” (Wednesday, 4 p.m., Morris Hall, House Office Building, the Capitol.)
