Based on concerns we have received from residents regarding high traffic volumes and speeding on certain residential streets, the Police Department is performing targeted enforcement studies on Andrew Jackson Trail, Highpoint Drive, Kenilworth Avenue, and Plantation Hill Road. The data collected so far indicates that the average vehicle speed on those streets was either at or below the posted speed limits with the exception of Andrew Jackson Trail. The average speed for Andrew Jackson Trail was slightly above the posted speed limit. As a result, the Police Department will monitor this street more closely and issue citations when necessary.

The data collected by the Police Department will be provided to the soon to be formed Traffic Calming and Enforcement Task Force for their future analysis. Additional targeted enforcement will be undertaken as needed. If you believe your neighborhood is subject to excessive speeding violations, please contact the Sergeant Kerstan Tatro at the Gulf Breeze Police Department (850.934.5121) and discuss the possibility of targeted enforcement efforts in your area.

As you know, hurricane season began on June 1st. In an effort to provide you with information that will assist should we have a hurricane this year, the Santa Rosa County Division of Emergency Management has developed a "Disaster Preparedness Guide" that contains valuable information about hurricane preparedness before, during, and after the storm. It also contains other information regarding general preparedness, natural hazards (floods, wildfires, lightning, etc.), and technological hazards (HAZMAT incidents or terrorism). Here's the link to the Guide: http://www.santarosa.fl.gov/disasterguide. We hope you find it to be helpful.
