City of West Palm Beach + Waze = Real-time traffic information. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿš—

Construction is happening around town. The 100 & 300 Blocks of Clematis are closed for the Green Market. The 500 Block of Clematis now host the awesome and car-free 500BLK party every weekend till March.

The Palm Beach Boat show will close Flagler for several weeks, and SunFest will start immediately thereafter.

Sometimes it’s enough to make you ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

Fear not! The City of West Palm Beach just partnered with Waze GPS App (owned by Google) to update the public with real-time traffic information.

So now before you leave your house you can map out your route to avoid road closures and traffic.

The city is using the Waze for Cities partnership to accomplish this.

Waze’s primary goal is to be your partner in mobility. That means getting Waze-reported incident data to government officials who can help, whether it’s a five-car pile-up or a pothole. It means getting data from government partners to ensure Waze drivers have the best real-time, location-based information about what’s happening in their communities. And of course helping cities improve congestion, sustainability, and access through carpooling.

โ€œThe City is increasingly using data and technology to help improve the lives of our citizens, business owners, and visitors,โ€ said Mayor Keith A. James. โ€œThe information-sharing partnership with Waze helps us to communicate with the public and inform decisions. This is one of many steps we are taking to utilize technology to improve quality of life and shape our cityโ€™s future.โ€

World Champions Polo Club hosts the World Polo League on Sundays

Last Sunday the World Polo League kicked off their Sunday Afternoon Polo at Grand Champions Polo Club.

Go down Lake Worth Rd for as far as you can go, and then swing a right and you will have arrived (just punch this into your GPS: 100 Lake Worth Rd, Wellington, FL)

Yes, I know it’s a bit of a drive from Clematis Street, but I think you’ll be impressed by the beautiful Polo fields and the quiet that’s only broken by the sounds of the horses, music and announcer. It’s an experience that you simply can’t get in West Palm Beach.
