THE DAVIS ISLANDS VIEW NEWSLETTER
Welcome to the November Islands View newsletter. Last month we had some great events, with “Movies in the Park” and “Halloween in the Village” generating big crowds. This month, the Davis Islands Civic Association is hosting their annual fall celebration and meeting. Additionally, new safety measure were installed at one of our main crosswalks. I hope you have a great Thanksgiving and enjoy the islands!

New Crosswalk Lights
The City of Tampa recently installed “blinking” crosswalk lights on Davis Blvd as you enter and exit the Islands. Pedestrians can press the walk button before crossing and in turn three different sets of lights in the crosswalk will blink.
