Wilton Manors

Unanimous. That was the vote by Wilton Manors’ Planning and Zoning (P&Z) board when considering requests for redevelopment at Shoppes of Wilton Manors, aka Alibi Plaza. During a special meeting on Aug. 16, the board took eight votes on proposed redevelopment of the site and each time voted ‘yes’ to move forward.

The grand opening of Pub on the Drive’s new patio was just that: grand. But an unforeseen issue briefly tamped down enthusiasm. On Aug. 16, co-owner Mike Connell and his crew cut the red ribbon and officially opened their new back patio area, called Pride Hub at Pub On the Drive.

Ron DeSantis tried to silence drag queens. Now, they’re speaking out against him at the biggest event of his struggling campaign. The first primary debate between Republican candidates for president is Wednesday. While the candidates, including Florida’s governor, will meet in Wisconsin, Wilton Manors will be home of the resistance.

Traffic in South Florida is bad and getting worse every year. While smaller cities, like Wilton Manors, don’t have major traffic issues (other than when streets flood or a slow-moving train rolls through), many worry the problem is coming.

From Mickel Park on the westside to Hagen Park, the crown jewel of Wilton Manors’ park system, to pocket parks that dot the city, Wilton Manors has an abundant green space. Over the past 15 years, the number of services offered by the city’s Leisure Services Department has greatly expanded, and is the backbone of the slogan “Life’s Just Better Here.”
