Oakland Town Manager Steve Koontz invites you to join him for coffee and conversation from 9-10 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 11, at the Oakland Meeting Hall. Coffee will be served at the Meeting Hall, located at 221 N. Arrington St.
Participants are welcome to learn more about Town news, services, events and more. Those attending will have an opportunity to ask questions and share their thoughts and ideas about various topics affecting the Town.
The August coffee meeting will feature a special presentation from Best Foot Forward, which focuses on one simple, measurable goal: to get more drivers to yield and stop for pedestrians in marked crosswalks, as Florida law requires. Speaker Roni Wood was first introduced to Best Foot Forward after being struck by a driver in 2018. She will share her personal story of a one-year recovery and how she is turning her pain into her purpose to keep pedestrians safe. Town Manager Koontz will discuss recent initiatives the Town has implemented to help keep pedestrians safe, such as installing stop signs at trail crossings.
