Humane Society calendar is here; other events in brief


Patricia Avenue option to be floated tonight

The city's traffic engineer will appear before the Dunedin City Commission tonight with a revamped plan to address complaints about the Patricia Avenue road blockade. Commissioners voted 4-1 to close the road in March to quell complaints about speeding and excess cut-through traffic. Officials vetoed engineer Joan Rice's October proposal to reopen Patricia and relocate three existing speed bumps. She's back with a recommendation to reopen Patricia to northbound one-way traffic north of Glenwood Place, install sidewalks and four speed bumps, and erect a multiway stop sign at McCarty Street. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 542 Main St.
