Key West City Commissioner Jimmy Weekley is convening a workshop to gather input from the community regarding ways to make Lazy Way more user friendly.
The workshop will be held on Tuesday, October 11th from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on the second floor of the Schooner Wharf, located on Lazy Way. Lazy Way is the single lane street that connects William and Elizabeth streets.
The purpose of the meeting is to receive public input and ideas on making Lazy Way more pedestrian-friendly, with easier and more inviting access for bicyclists and walkers to visit and enjoy the area.
This initiative is part of the city’s efforts to create more pedestrian-friendly streets throughout Key West. In January 2020, the City conducted a survey of close to 4,000 residents, the majority of whom live in Key West year-round. One of the biggest concerns in the survey was traffic, parking, and congestion. The survey was followed by a series of focus groups with residents and employees to identify solutions. A popular suggestion was to create closed or shared streets, as many cities have done throughout the country and the world.
While we as a city try to respond to the needs of residents, the City also wants to honor the needs of the tenants of the Historic Seaport.
