Tree Removal on Tequesta Drive
Week of 5/28-6/1

  • Tequesta Drive between Norfolk Avenue and Riverside Drive


  • 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Type of Work:

  • FPL will be removing four Village of Tequesta owned critical palms along Tequesta Dr between Norfolk Ave and Riverside Dr. They are currently either contacting or overhanging main overhead power lines and could cause reliability issues for over 1300 Tequesta residents. FPL has constantly trimmed these palms (at least 2-3 times per year), but they need to be removed to ensure no reliability or safety issues.  FPL will remove the palms and will haul away all debris.

Lighted Medians to Recognize Specific Causes

Our Public Works Department has started illuminating the median on Tequesta Drive near Cypress with colored lights in recognition of various causes. January 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. Click here for the full list of causes and colors that will illuminate the median throughout 2017. For more information, contact Public Works at 561-768-0482.
