Please fix the light timing on East/West Bay Dr. It seems as though they are based on a camera system that judges volume, which I believe could be improved upon. In my morning commute I typically hit 7 of the 11 traffic lights from my house to 19 via East Bay. Sometimes it takes 20 minutes to do that 5 mile commute. Timing the lights would keep traffic flow moving and reduce fuel waste at all the red lights. Major city all over this country time their lights to keep the flow moving and it is very possible here. All in all, Largo is a great city to live in. Thank you.

Paving Ulmerton Road and the new sidewalks.
I've looked at the consultants map of the Medical area and see that much needed additional parking is proposed. Has the drainage issue been resolved - we get a lot of standing water at times which is hazardous. Cell phone reception could be much better - more carriers with stronger signals would be helpful. I do not see a helicopter landing pad at the hospital on the consultants map. The Green is a nice idea for waiting patients, hospital visitors and employees in the various Medical buildings.
