What is Flagler Shore?
A temporary redesign of the waterfront to provide more space to people.
Will I still be able to drive down Flagler Drive?
Yes, a two lane road will be established, one lane north and one south.
What does this mean for Downtown businesses?
More people on the streets means more potential customers. People attract people and having part of Flagler Drive programmed with new activation nodes can be beneficial for merchants that will see an increase in pedestrians throughout the City trying to get to and from the parking garages to Flagler Shore.

Is there a calendar of activities?
