Commissioner Larry Vignola is running as an incumbent for Seat Three on the Coral Springs Commission. He wants to continue the initiatives he has developed for Coral Springs and Broward County. He works as director of business development for a law firm. He was first elected to the Commission in 2010 was reelected in 2012.
“There are a lot of projects I am working on and I want to continue working on,” said Vignola.
A major project Vignola is leading is an extension from the Sawgrass Expressway to I-95. He is a leader with the Metropolitan Planning Organization, (MPO), which is working to develop project. The support for this project is coming together and there is a good chance work will begin on it within two years.
“This is very important because it will improve traffic flow in Northern Broward County. This is something we need and I want to make sure it becomes a reality,” said Vignola. “This is a top priority.”
Vignola has been active with a project to provide CPR training for all public teachers in Coral Springs. He is leading an effort to promote the Walk Safe program designed to teach elementary school age children the proper way to cross the street and some of the dangers involved in crossing streets. “Too many kids cross at improper places without looking both ways. We want to eliminate that,” said Vignola.
Vignola said another priority has been improving the appearance of the City. “We have been working to improve the parks and residents have been taking notice. We have pressure cleaned sidewalks and improved walkways,” he said.
Also, the City has hired more police officers and firefighters and brought successful businesses to the area. “Coral Springs is second to none. We have strong sports programs and we are improving older buildings in the City,” he said. “I want to continue the work I have been doing. I would like to continue working with the Coral Square Mall to transform it.”
