Lighted Medians to Recognize Important CausesMedian Lights

Our Public Works Department has started illuminating the median on Tequesta Drive near Cypress with colored lights in recognition of various causes. Last month the median was pink in support of "Breast Cancer Race for the Cure." February will be red in support of "American Heart Month."  This is our small way of bringing attention to important causes and hopefully raise awareness.  Visit the Public Works web page to see a full list of causes and colors that will illuminate the median throughout 2017.  For more information, contact Public Works at 561-768-0482.
