As you may already know, the Gulf Stream School has applied through the town of Gulf Stream to have an amendment approved that would allow them to enroll 50 more students at the school.

Fifty more students means 50 more cars twice per day as most of their students are from outside the neighborhood. This is an area that is already extremely crowded with cars and will soon be undergoing Core roadway construction.

To make matters worse, the George Bush Boulevard bridge will soon undergo rebuilding for two to four years, A1A will be resurfaced and the Ocean Avenue bridge will also have work done.

These will result in a traffic nightmare and construction gridlock for our quiet, peaceful town. A meeting is scheduled on April 12 at 9 a.m. at the Gulf Stream Town Hall.

Residents must speak up to protect our community and sanity! If you would like to electronically add your name to the petition to stop the school amendment, please go to, online at
