Subject: Traffic in Boca Raton

Those who want to alleviate Boca’s increasing traffic congestion have three problems: 1) there in insufficient infrastructure (roads, bridges, etc.) to handle the amount of new and planned development; 2) most of Boca’s key traffic arteries cannot be expanded and there is no room for “new” roads; and 3) proposed non-auto “solutions” like trolleys or ride-sharing have either proven uneconomic or inconvenient. New development in Boca should follow the guidelines set down in Boca’s landmark downtown development Ordinance 4035: build the infrastructure BEFORE you build the buildings. If you can’t, then don’t. How’s that for a simple solution?
