Well the past 20 years has seen the city of Wilton Manors and more specific Wilton Drive change at a record pace. Yes what was once a slow and in many places run city and road way has turned into one of South Florida’s biggest restaurant and night life hot spots.
The bigger question remains: what will the next 20 years bring for Wilton Manors & Wilton Drive. If you have been paying attention to the news lately the Drive has drawn attention for speeding drivers and several accidents. There have been public demonstrations demanding the city, county and state take action.
It all seems that city of Wilton Manors is at the crossroads with where the future will take it. The most common thought is that where there is either room or something old is that it should be torn down and redone. The Old Seafood House restaurant and strip mall have been mentioned to be on the chopping block for something more grand and new.
Lets just hope that the city leaders and planners really try and take it to the next level. More green space and parking along with a safer and better laid out Wilton Drive.
