Chiefland grows list of golf cart friendly streets

-A A +A

Suzette Cook, Reporter

Chiefland City Commissioners voted to amend an ordinance to expand the list of streets that golf carts are allowed to travel on.

On May 30, Strawberry Fields RV park owner Hal Lyons made a request in writing asking the City to allow golf cart traffic on NE 4th Street, Bay Street AKA NE 9th Terrace, NE 8th Street, Willow Street AKA NE 10th Terrace and NE 11th Drive.

At the June 10 commission meeting, the streets were approved by all Commissioners except RV Park Manager and Commissioner Tim West who abstained from the vote to avoid a conflict of interest.

Two months ago, on April 8, the City adopted Ordinance NO. 19-01, which stated that golf carts could be legally operated on NW 21 Avenue between NW 11th Drive and the entrance to the Southern Leisure RV park, on NW 11th Drive between NW 5th Street and the NE corner of the CVS parcel, and on NW 5th Street between NW 11th Drive and the NW corner of the NAPA building.

“I live on one of the streets,” said Commissioner Norm Weaver said about the requested additional street. “I don’t see an issue.”
