City Plans to Dedicate Walter "Skip" Campbell Avenue

Post Date:02/11/2020 11:36 AM
Mayor Walter "Skip" CampbellCoral Springs, FL – On Tuesday, March 17 at 10 a.m., the City of Coral Springs will host a ceremony to officially dedicate Walter “Skip” Campbell Avenue, outside of City Hall.
 
Skip Campbell was a dedicated public servant who was elected as Coral Springs Mayor in 2014, a seat he held until his sudden passing on October 23, 2018. Skip ran for the Florida Senate and won, spending 10 years representing the West and Northwest areas of Broward County. An accomplished legislator, Campbell helped to successfully pass 112 Bills during his time in the State Senate, many of which benefited children and families.   

A distinguished attorney, Skip was considered a leader within the legal profession. He served as President of the Broward County Bar Association, President of the Broward County Trial Lawyers' Association and President of the Federal Bar Association of Broward County.
 
The decision to rename 94th Avenue between Sample Road and 31st Court (just east of City Hall) was voted by the Commission and unanimously approved in 2019. The chosen date of March 17, St. Patrick’s Day, for the dedication, is a direct correlation of the late Mayor’s Irish heritage – one that he was immensely proud of.
 
Of the roadway renaming, Mayor Scott Brook said, “I personally considered Skip to be a great friend and mentor – he was a true pillar of our community. I can think of no better way to honor his legacy and impact on our City.”
 
Walter “Skip” Campbell’s service to the public, especially to the Coral Springs community, will have a lasting impact on the community for generations to come. The dedication is open to the public, parking is available in the City Hall garage.
 
The Coral Springs Community Redevelopment Agency graciously funded the cost to designate the roadway.
