Coral Gables Residents Can Buy Children at Play Signs

November 6th, 2015 Written By Carol Pawley


C.A.P.A. signs can be purchased at the Youth Center for only $6.50.

Coral Gables residents may purchase two “Children At Play” signs by visiting the Coral Gables War Memorial Youth Center at 405 University Drive, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., and Saturday, 8:00 a.m. – 12 Noon. The cost of the signs is $6.50/per sign.

Each City-issued sign is numbered for verification purposes.Communities across the nation have grappled with traffic and speed issues along neighborhood streets in an effort to preserve and enhance quality of life and also protect those “littlest citizens” that are busy at play in their front yards. Children awareness (C.A.P.A.) is a program offered by the City of Coral Gables to allow parents and/or caregivers the ability to purchase and place authorized City-issued signs in the swale area of their property while children are actively playing in the front yard.

Happy Halloween!

A vast majority of Americans consider homeownership a solid financial decision

According to a new survey from the National Association of Realtors, a vast majority of Americans consider home buying a solid financial decision, and most are confident they could sell their home for at least its initial purchase price. The 2015 National Housing Pulse Survey also found that a majority of Americans think it’s a good time to buy a home.  The survey measures consumers’ attitudes and concerns about housing issues in the nation’s 50 largest metropolitan statistical areas.

The top three reasons survey participants offered as to why homeownership matters to them were: Building equity, wanting a stable and safe environment, and having the freedom to choose their neighborhood.

Attitudes about the housing market have improved in recent years. Most (89 percent) don’t expect that home sales in their area will decline. Survey participants also showed an improved outlook regarding the economy.  Millenials are the most positive,  almost half believe the country is headed in the right direction.
