News From City Hall :Persimmon Avenue Improvements Complete and New Directional Signage Unveiled

 
The City improved a portion of Persimmon Avenue between the Amtrak Auto Train entrance and SR 46, a distance of one quarter mile. The improvements now include separate left and right turn lanes at the north end of Persimmon Avenue with a significant extension of the existing right turn land into Amtrak’s Auto Train terminal at the south end.

Persimmon Avenue is an important road, as it is the main thoroughfare used by Amtrak Auto Train passengers. The improvements were needed to provide better access to and from the Auto Train terminal helping to address the traffic issues and long back-ups within this section of Persimmon Avenue. The project also enhances pedestrian access by extending the existing sidewalk along the west side to provide a connection with SR 46.

The million dollar project was jointly funded by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and the Seminole County 1-cent sales tax.

In tandem with this project, the City of Sanford has been working hard to further expand economic development opportunities through heritage tourism. As part of the road improvements, the City recently installed a new “Visit Downtown” sign, which will direct Auto Train passengers and other visitors to the City’s historic downtown and award-winning RiverWalk. The vintage inspired, postcard-styled sign will make passengers aware of the food, art, entertainment and shopping opportunities in Sanford’s “hip and historic” downtown. (Road improvements and new “Visit Downtown” sign attached).

Seminole State College of Florida partnering with Central Florida Zoo on new courses, internships

SANFORD, Fla. (Nov. 19, 2015) - "Class is in session" will have a whole new meaning when students at Seminole State College of Florida find themselves working, observing and interacting with the zoo animal care team to learn how to care for wild animals. 

One of Seminole County’s most recognized attractions, the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens, andSeminole State’s Grindle Honors Institute have formed a partnership that will allow students the opportunity for out-of-the box learning experiences with wild animals. 

Starting in January, students will be able to take classes in Introduction to Zoos and Wildlife Management (PAZ1003H), Comparative Psychology-Animal Behavior (CBH1021H), and Honors Speech (SPC1608H) with a zoo focus. All three courses will include instruction at the zoo.

The zoo also is offering internship opportunities for up to 20 Seminole State students in the Spring Term, taught by zoo staff. Students who complete the internships will receive three college credits. Students may be able to work in four areas: avian, amphibians, reptiles and mammals.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for students who are interested in careers as veterinarians, zookeepers or in wildlife biology,” says Barbara Greenwell, director of the Honors Institute and instructor for two of the courses. “Data suggests that wildlife-related jobs are on the rise nationally. We’re excited about partnering with the zoo.”

The courses are available for all students enrolled at Seminole State. Registration for Spring Term is underway. Students who are interested in the internships should contact the Honors Institute.

The Central Florida Zoo opened in 1975 with just 38 animals. Today, there are over 500 animals representing nearly 200 species, from tiny insects to the tallest land mammal, the giraffe.

“One of the most exciting areas of growth involves our commitment to transform our well-established local education focus into a broader, more universal concentration,” says Philip Flynn III, president and chief executive officer for the zoo. “We are transitioning into a teaching zoo so we may continue to be an essential science education resource that provides leadership in creating and delivering lifelong learning experiences for children and adults.”

Seminole State’s Grindle Honors Institute offers programs for students who want to enrich their academic experience. For more information, visitseminolestate.edu/honors.
