False alarm at Wilton Manors Elementary

A response by Wilton Manors police to an unidentified individual on the campus of Wilton Manors Elementary School turned out to be a false alarm. On Jan. 26, the school was put on lockdown and police units responded to the call of an unidentified individual at the school. But according to police, the unidentified individual turned out to be a member of the school’s staff. Police say there was no threat and the school was removed from lockdown shortly thereafter.

 

Resident worried about construction getting too close

Resident Raymond Carrier likes living in his neighborhood behind the Shoppes of Wilton Manors. But he wants a setback in case a developer builds something in the shopping center that Carrier isn’t as enthusiastic about.

At the Jan. 24 commissioner meeting, Carrier asked the commission to create a setback in its code between commercial and residential properties. Right now, none exists between the homes that abut the Shoppes of Wilton Manors.

He’s worried about a higher building being constructed right next to his property overlooking it.

There’s also no setback between The Manor Complex and the residences behind it.

Robert Moore, director of Community Development Services, said there is some preliminary talk about The Manor expanding its facilities but nothing has been submitted yet. She said that developers who submit plans before a setback is established would not be bound by it and could build right up to the property line.
